Your wedding is before mine, so I hope that you can give me your opinion once you are back about how sturdy it was... etc...

    I have not seen pictures of a beach wedding at the moon palace, so if you come across any, please forward them to me. I would also love pics of your beach wedding... HOW EXCITING!
    I will definitely let you know how it goes. I will also continue to look for pictures of a beach wedding. I did find one picture on one of these forums. I don't know who's wedding it was or if the bride was in heels or not because you could not see them. I will try to attach it.

      Best of Luck Ladies!

      Hi Laura,

      Congrats on getting everything booked!! I still haven't been assigned a wedding coordinator (I keep bugging Marlyn), but I did call the resort directly yesterday and ask for someone to be assigned, and arranged with the person I was talking to to book the Tucan gazebo. I think I'm supposed to hear from a WC today at some point, which will help!

      What is the lounge set-up? Do you have any pictures of it? Have you heard how much it costs? I'm still trying to decide where we should have our reception afterwards.

      For anyone who is booking the horse and carriage for your way to the wedding, do you know if the bridesmaids just meet you at the end of the aisle then? I had always thought that I'd be going to the gazebo with my girls, but obviously we can't all fit in that carriage! Would they have a golf cart for transportation or anything, or would they just walk? I'd like there to be something kind of special for them as well.

      Laura, just out of curiousity, which bouquet and cake did you pick? I wonder if we'll see each other the day of our weddings! I'll be keeping an eye out for other brides for sure!

        That is the only picture I have seen of the beach wedding and in fact is the sample used by Moon Palace for a beach wedding, that decoration costs $850.00...I don't know if it even is a real wedding or set up for purposes of a sample.......

        I would like to call mexico and find out about whether the high heels would work on that runner he he

          For those of you who have already been through this nerve wrecking experience or for anyone who might know, I have a couple of questions.

          First, I have always wanted a beach wedding so when my WC sent me pics of the gazebos I told her that I would rather have our ceremony on the beach. She had no problem with that and told me, "the beach it will be". I've been reading some reviews and noticed that a few people had the same idea that I did and then when they arrived at their resort they changed to a gazebo location. Why Can anyone tell me if the beach weddings aren't as private, appealing, too pricey, what is it

          Second, I have this awful tattoo on my finger that I've been having removed for almost 1 year now. It's much lighter than it used to be but unfortunately it's still there =( Does anyone know if the onsite photographers are able to airbrush any pictures that my finger may be in? I've tried lot's of things to cover it up but nothing works like I would like it to.
          I have read reviews from past brides that they rake the beach often but that there always seemed to an abundance of seaweed.

          I'd always wanted a beach wedding too but then I attended one a couple years ago in the Bahamas and while the view and whole idea of it was great, the wind was a force to be reckoned with. Perhaps it was an overly windy day but I decided that day that I was a not a fan of the wind and vowed to go with a gazebo if one was available.

            Hi Camie,
            Thanks for the info ~ there are so many pages for the MP forum that it's hard to find things on here! I'm going to see if I can find any pics on Tripadvisor of the restaurants you mentioned.

            I grew up in St. Paul, lived in Mpls during college and now we're in Bloomington (the same suburb that the Mall of America is in). That's interesting that you moved to TX! We might be moving there too, eventually. Nick's parents moved to Austin 2 years ago and we love visiting them.

            You'll be happy to be down there today.....we had freezing rain all day yesterday and woke up to two inches of snow this morning!

                Hey all! I got assigned my onsite WC today! I was so shocked! My wedding isn't until July! I booked my wedding last week and sent in the charge authorization form, and today I emailed Katherine Rivera (my Miami WC) to ask her to send me some lists of prices for reception stuff. She just emailed me back with my onsite WC, who will be Kalena.

                I was soooo surprised! I was expecting it to be a huge hassle based on what others have gone through! Now I'm so excited to really get some planning done!!

                  Does anyone by chance have Mario's (head of photography) email address? Claudia, bless her heart, still hasn't responded to my inquiries and we're working on three weeks. Last I heard was that she would have Mario contact me to confirm photography information.... Please help! Has anyone heard anything from Claudia lately?

                  Also, is anyone going the route of rent a tux through the resort?

                    You are so lucky!!!! Oh my gosh, i really want to know who my onsite WC is too! I am also working with Katherine Rivera so I'll ask her!

                    I can't even order my wedding invitations until I finalize the reception stuff.

                    envious!!! =) Congrats!
