    Beautiful wedding set-up!

    They have like 4 or 5 different menus for the cocktail hour/appetizers. And it is totally like a meal with tons of food! I didn't find out the details of the menus until I got to the Moon Palace and talked to my WC, and I can't remember all the different ones! But I do remember that it was good food LOL!

      Hello ladies,

      I just wanted to say thanks!! :)
      We were really pleased with our pictures and flowers. The Moon Palace photographer did a great job, and the Moon Palace has beautiful flowers to choose from.

      Jodymichelle: we didn't have quite as much time as you to plan. But that just means you have lots of time to pick out wedding dress and shoes, bridesmaids dresses, work on invitations, save the date cards etc. And this forum is great, you should get lots of good ideas from here. I didn't find this forum until less than a month before we left.

      I thought I attached the menus in a previous post But here it is again.

      Good luck! :)

      Sarah

          Good Luck with that! Hopefully you will have some last minute joiners! Our deadline is on April 17th. Everyone has to be paid in full and we will know what we are looking out then. I am so ready to start planning.

          I originally thought we needed over 40 OOT bags and in prepping, I did 50. We are down to 30 now (yes, I already bought everything! DOH!!) so I decided that we are going to use the extra stuff for door prizes at showers. It will give away some of the surprises for the guest that are going but the people who are holding our showers really appreciate the idea.

          We have to all stay positive in these trying times and make the best of what we do with it.

            Hey Tina,

            I did the same thing. I bought some stuff for my OOT bags planning on 50...and we only have 26 now. Oh well. I'm sure some of it I can sell on the forum...I'll have 20 extra of those little spanish books from Target!

            Sarah and Richard, is that the menu for the cocktail receptions

              So...I was just one the palace resorts wedding website, and they've really changed the packages!!! I got to thinking though, does this mean the 2009 packages change? I got the free package for my wedding in July, but does it change to the free package that's up there now? It looked like there were a few changes...does anyone know?

                If you've already signed your contract and paid your deposit (don't you have to do this for free ones as well, give a credit card or something) it should remain the same.

                Looking at it I'm glad I booked when I did, I think I get a lot more stuff with my superior package for less money then the first few. Phew!

                    Hi Julia! I too am new to this site and I also am thinking of booking Moon Palace Punta Cana for our wedding location. I just received some info from the WC there and it looks like they have changed their wedding packages from what was listed on the website a month ago (both good and bad). I would love to chat with you so we can share any information so hit me up. Look forward to talking to you...good luck!

                      I am experiencing the same thing right now! Although I haven't booked yet, I have been emailing with the WC at Moon Palace PC since before the resort even opened. This whole time I was under the impression I was going pay for the superior wedding package and receive spa treatments, hair, mani and pedi. Well, that is no longer included in their packages so those things will now have to be purchased separately. Not sure if I am going to go with MP, also thinking Paradisus Palma Real...anyone have recommendations or info?
