          Hello Sunny Bride

          I am also getting married at Moon Palace on January 29, 2009.

          Have you begun planning with your onsite WC yet? If so, who is your WC?

          What time are you getting married at?

          Location?

          Are you having a cocktail reception along with a private function?

          We are planning a 3pm wedding followed by both a cocktail reception & private function.

            One of the few things that have been keeping me up at night has been the quality of pictures. I have wanted to bring an outside photographer, but I couldn't make up my mind. After speaking to the head photography person and seeing some of the samples, I think I am feeling a lot more relaxed about going with a Moon photographer. He basically sent me some samples of their work and told me to pick the pictures that I liked the most and then he would assign that photographer to me. Here are 3 pictures that from the samples he sent me. (I also uploaded a power point file with the rest of the pictures he sent me.)

            You can also tell your WC that you want to get in contact with Mario (the head of photography) if you have any questions.

              Hi HaleGrifa,

              Congrats on your wedding! I'm getting so excited as the day gets closer.

              We are getting married at 4:00 PM on the 29th. I had asked the resort who my wedding coordinator was, and was told that it's Marlyn, but the more posts I read, the more it seems like she might not actually be the WC, she's just the contact until I actually get one assigned? Do you have one yet?

              I have asked for the Tucan Wedding Gazebo, because I kind of like the idea of a longer pathway to walk on, and we're not having a Catholic ceremony. Do you have yours booked yet?

              We were going to have a cocktail party on the Sat or Sun that everyone arrives as a 'meet the wedding group', and then on our wedding day we'll just have the private function. I don't know locations or anything like that for the private functions yet (I've asked Marlyn, so I'm just waiting). Do you know where your function is?

              Are you planning on having it indoors or outside?

                Thanks a bunch, Amduran! Have you already selected your photographer? Based on the photos, the two with the blonde bride are definately more my style (David Pena). I sent Claudia an inquiry for more samples and an inquiry to request David Pena specifically. It seems to take her a week or more to respond

                      I'm so happy to have found this forum specifically for the Moon Palace! I have my wedding date booked there on January 29th, 2008, and the information in here is sooo helpful. I was looking at the pictures of the flowers that were posted in a PDF earlier. Does anyone know how much the bridesmaid bouquets usually cost? It seems like $100+ would be so much to spend for four bridesmaids...
                      Hello SunnyBride,

                      Moon Palace has starting prices for the bridal bouquet (starting at $140) and maid of honor bouquet (starting at $115) on their website. Another bride posted a suggestion very early in this forum of selecting 4 or 5 of the same flower (e.g. roses) and simply binding them together with ribbon. I did not read anything further on that topic in this forum but it is a possible option that you could discuss with your wedding coordinator which may help keep the cost down. Just wanted to pass along the idea...
