It was only 1 page, printed on regular paper with a little flip flop border around it. I just gave them to people as I saw them w/ the OOT Bags.
    Betsy, that actually just gave me a great idea. Since a few of my friends aren't staying at the same resort, I really want to mail something off to everyone. So, instead of including the Welcome Dinner in my brochure I will just make a pre-wedding letter. I can just go buy pretty paper and print it at home. I can mail that off to everyone who sends an RSVP and then I can just include the brouchure in the Welcome Bags or give them out at the Welcome Dinner. Thanks!!

      Were you able to place your gift bags in the rooms for your guests or do you know if the resort allows this?

          hello ladies. Well I have 98 Days until my moon palace wedding. We are getting married in the chapel and the reception is being held on the Tucan Terrace. Our wedding is at 6pm.We were wondering if any other 6pm bride and groom had to take pic's before the ceremony because of losing light after the nup's. I really do want hinto see me before the nup's.Were hoping that because it will be in April we might be able to wait.

            Katt, I had a similar concern about not having enough light for a 6pm ceremony time, so I actually had our ceremony time changed to 5 o'clock. We're getting married at the beginning of April and the sun sets right around the 6pm mark (hopefully ideally timed for sunset photos). Talk to your WC to see what options you have.

              I was wondering how many tables they set up for the cocktail party?? And how many ppl you had at your wedding. I would like to put something on the tables, like candles or small decoration.

              Thanks :)

                ~Hey Ladies~

                I am soooo excited!! I finally heard back and have been assigned a wedding coordinator. Does anyone have any info to share on Janina Mendoza? She is working with the resort and should get back to me with the contract shortly. I am kind of nervous because I'm trying to pull this whole thing together in only 6 months. Can anyone share what the contract process is like? Can you change things if you want to? I have so many questions!!

                  I think there were about 6 tables set up and then there were also chairs around 1/2 of the terrace off to the side. There were about 35 people at our wedding - and everyone had a place to sit.

                  Also - they didn't have everyones room assignments yet when we checked in so I wasn't able to put our OOT bags in the rooms beforehand, I just handed them out when I saw people - it was fun to see the look on everyones face too b/c nobody was expecting them - they were all very gracious and so I'm glad I handed them out!

                  We were married at 5 or was it 6? OMG Seriously I can't remember now - but we did our photos after the ceremony. The ceremony doesn't last that long and actually our photog kept saying he was losing his light but the pictures he took are really amazing and I am so glad we did our pics afterwards b/c I didn't want DH to see me before either!

                    Dana, I agree about the dinner. I think FI really wants to just wait and see how many people we have book - it's really up in the air right now. That's the most frustrating part I think...WAITING to see who is going to come through. We just lost one of the groomsmen, so that's been a damper on our excitement. We just need to make sure that there's a mother son dance, because otherwise, MIL will be heartbroken! I figure we can do that during the cocktail reception though. I'm so glad to hear there is another MP bride with an early wedding - I have been stressing about it!

                    MrsLeBlanc - The contract process was really easy for me! They didn't have my preferred time available, so I called and got it all worked out, and they sent me the contract the same day! It's a pretty simple contract too. I would recommend figuring out if you're going to use a travel agent or not soon - he or she could help you with the contract if you decide to go that route.

                      It's been so long since I posted...I'm in hurry up wait mode since we signed the contract in September. It's been an 8 month journey so far and I have a little more than a year left. EEP!

                      All this talk about receptions and cocktail parties got me thinking about what I want for a private function...Soo....

                      Just a quick question about tables... I know that if you do a private function, there is a "basic" setup that is included (white linens, ect).

                      Does anyone know or have a doc that details out the "basic setup"?

                      Also... do you know if we can have our choice between round tables and rectangular?

                      I'm guessing this is something you hash out in the meeting like 3 days before the wedding, but I'd like to know so I can design my centerpieces/tablescape accordingly.
