    Oh how exciting!! It must be so nice to see everything falling into place after so many months of planning, wondering who will end up going, etc. Good luck with finalizing everything, and keep us updated!!

      Thank you!

      I loved my bouquet too - just what I asked for.

      I am in the middle of getting my pics organized - I am sending a mailing to my guests that includes a cd & pre-paid envelope to have them send me their photos taken during the trip. As well, our professional photographers are currently working on our pics!!!

      Once all of this is a little better organized, I will be sending packages to our guest and be posting online.

      Pics - I am all about the pictures - but once you get home you think you will have all of this time to get all of the fun post-wedding items started - but you are soo busy just relishing in the wonder of your wedding and family trip of a lifetime. Besides it is difficult to get back into the swing of things.

      I will do my best ladies to speed things up - as I know being a bride how much we all want to see them to get an idea of our day.

      Send me your email and I will attach some pics for you.

      MP is amazing! Our Wedding was Magical!

      Wishing you all the best

          It's been a while since I've read Moon Palace Reviews. Have any of you read new ones lately?

            Ok, so I just got an e-mail from Maribel outlining the new document requirements for the Moon Palace.

            Here is what she wrote:

            Dear Miss Cindy:

            Thank you for your message, As per new government disposition to get married for civil ceremony the documentation required is as follows:

            bride and groom:
            1) Passports
            2) certified copy of your birth certificate ( as the offices keeps it and do not give it to you back , in case you only bring your original )
            3) blood test
            4) tourist ID form you get upon arrival at Cancun airport.

            if divorced: the name for the marriage license appears as on passport shows.

            if name changed the name on marriage certificate is as on this document

            Please feel free to contact us for any further assistance.

            Kind Regards

            Maribel Blancarte
            weddings Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort.

            I hope this clears some things up for a few MP brides. I know this will save some money too!!


            Cindy, thanks for sharing. I've had 3 different contacts from that office giving me direction until I'm finally assigned my WV in April-3 different people telling me different things. I am finally going to get my WV 1 month before my wedding date!!! Maribel is the last one I heard from, but she hasn't mentioned these documents. I will have to ask her. Thanks again

              If you don't choose that route, they would have to walk or hail a golf cart individually. This is the reason why i have a 30 minute "walking" time from the cocktail hour to the reception. Nancy suggested you have walking time to make sure everyone is at the reception site at the same time.
              Thanks for the info. I'm also working with Nancy, she's been great so far. I'm not really worried about anyone making the walk but I'm glad to give them some options.
              The "walking" time is a good idea.

                we are almost done with the planning. we are just finalizing the reception and OOT bags and favors. We have been sooo lucky to be assigned to Nancy Ariza as our wedding planner. Maribel was our onsite WC prior to that and she was fantastic. It was sad when we received her farewell e-mail. Nancy has been top-notch!

                We decided to get the Mayan Ballet for our reception. we are so excited to have this performance at our wedding!

                Nancy also showed us some favors that Moon Palace could provide to eliminate having to bring the favors all the way to Cancun. They have some nice stuff for cheap. You guys should consider it if you dont want the hassle of transporting everything to Cancun.

                The only thing we are worried about right now is getting the unlimited functions on our contract. we are so close!!! unfortunatelt we have 2 memsbers of our party that booked with Expedia and Orbitz instead of our group rate. This really hurt our chance of getting the unlimited functions. i will be begging my WC to help us make these count. Right now we have enough room nights paid for the free reception. we want the free cocktail hour too since.

                i have been in contacts with teh new priest, Father Benito. he is very responsive to e-mails and has been so pleasant to work with.

                wish me luck! i will be posting some pictures of my progress real soon. =)

                Yes I was saying a few threads ago that nancy Ariza is Amazing. she sooo on the ball with what's happening with the wedding amenities. I'm also heading for the finish line. I only need 5 more rooms to get the 4 nite free w/ private reception and I have 2 bridesmaids, My dad,some groomsmen, that have flights but have not booked yet...So I might be O.K. I was orignally going for the 25 room deal unlimited functions But since I also paid for the top package The Deluxe we get a private dinner at a resturant of our choice for the guest.If I Don't get the "75" room nites for the unlimited function will use the
                resturant dinner for the reherrsal dinner and do the "60" nite amenities which is the 20 room deal. The ballet sound fab how much is it? We are doing the light show and the DJ set up compelet w/ A Hype Man to get the people groovin and to call the tables for dinner and to announce the speaker and us.

                  I can't wait to get assigned my coordinator! We are about 2 months out...and although Maribel has been such a great help, as well as my many other contacts at the resort, I would LOVE to know who my actual WC is going to be.

                  Another question...does anyone have a map of the grounds of MP that includes the Grand Moon side?

                    Hi Katt,

                    Here's the information on the live performances:
                    Price $1,215.00 USD P/ 45 minutes show

                    •Mexican Folkloric Ballet with live Mariachi (8pax)
                    (No sound system or lighting)
                    Price $3,120.00 USD P/45 minutes show

                    •Folkloric Mayan Ballet
                    (Includes live drums and flaute – prehispanic style music) / (Lighting is not included)

                    12 pplPrice $1,850.00 USD P/45 minutes show

                    I worked with Nancy to get the performance time down to 30 minutes for timing purposes.

                    We have the free reception too. I am still trying to get the 75 room nights though. I am not that far away, but i dont think I will make it =( it sucks cause if 2 of my family members didnt book with Orbitz and Expedia, we would make it for sure.

                    For the free private function, you actually only get 2 hours of the reception. anything beyond that is $60 per table, per hour. I confirmed this with my WC in Miami. Make sure you include the extra horus in your budget so you won't get any surprises.

                    We're getting the DJ too! Package 1 with the video slideshow.

                    Nancy and I were doing a lot of e-mail exchanges last week and she told me that she would be extremelt busy this week. I am not expecting an e-mail from her since she's probablt working on other brides right now.

                    Your day is almost here as well! Hang in there and best of luck =)

                      Miami told me that the round tables are the only ones that are "included" - but I've seen a couple brides on here with long tables. I have a beautiful long table design but I need to know if going forward with that design is going to cost me beaucoup when I get to the resort.

                      Most hotels offer both ... just curious what MP did.
                      My WC just told me that I could get a rectangular table and that each rectangular table seats 14 people. It doesn't appear to have an extra cost per table other than the centerpieces, colored linens etc if you wanted those. Hope this helps!
