    Thanks for your help guys! :)

    I just filled out my contract for the free package, and I was told to put $300.

      I think they want your permission to charge you $300 if you cancel, that's the deposit. I dont think they charge you for it unless you cancel.

        Hi girls-
        I am so excited we just got our confirmation. We are booked for June 27, 2009 Woohoo! We also booked our photographer too. Tamarra of Tamms photos her pics are awesome and she has done alot of wedding at MP. Has anyone else looked into her?
        I asked Elizabeth (Miami) for more specific flower info. As soon as I get anything I will post it for you guys.
        Just curious- Has anyone looked into the suites they have at the MP? Any idea on the cost?

          Hi SouthCarolina,

          Congrats on booking your wedding!! Less than a year to go!!
          My wedding is on the 17th June!!
          I am looking at booking an outside photographer, can i ask how you have gone about it as I know the Moon Palace are supposed to be strict on outside vendors??
          Also were Tamms reasonable? I am looking at Cancun Studios but am unsure how to get them on site!!?

          xx

Also gives us time to save for it..people always think you go abroad to get married for it to be cheaper...but thats not really the case if you chose mexico!lol

            Ive not been to mp before, but i know a few people who have been. One couple, and the other girl went in a group for a girlie holiday...everyone loved it!

            Whats your thoughts on photographer and reception while your there then? I really want an outdoor reception! Just depends how many people go, because it is pretty expensive, so will only do it if enough people go so we can scrap the reception back home for it!

            I Just posted a question regarding the photographer. We were all set to use the resorts photographer and upgrade the package but having read some of the other posts, it seems that the majority of brides use an outside photographer. I have spoken to a few photographers who have quoted me quite reasonable prices. The only problem would be getting them on site as the Moon Palace state 'no outside vendors'.
            Hopefully some of the other girls can help me with that proble.

            As we are having a small wedding 10-15 guests we are'nt having a reception, just a cocktail hour and a meal at one of the restaurants. Just need to decide on which restaurant now.

            Have you chosen a dress yet? I just orderd mine, its a Farage dress, never heard of them untill i tried it on. Its got a very spanish look to it. Cant wait to wear it now!!

              I have done a search but can't seem to find anything on here or palaceresorts.com. I was just wondering how many witnesses do we need? Does anybody know

I was dealing with Carolina Lopez in Miami, and I think after awhile she just got tired of answering questions that were not her problem. I'm now dealing with Maribel Blancarte in Cancun, and she is pretty good with responding to e-mails, although we are having some "lost in translation" issues. I have tried e-mailing her in English and Spanish and still she's NOT getting it!

                Well I haven't talked to anyone in Miami--so I guess that's where I need to start! Didn't even know that was an option. I've gotten no direction at all from the Cancun folks.

                      The way to get around the no vendors policy is to book your photog a room. Tammarra required a room for two days but discounted her package price by $500. It is her and her husband who come. They will take photos of the welcome party and the whole day of the wedding. Her husband comes too and takes photos of the men the whole day while they are getting ready and Tammarra takes pics of the girls. I thought she was very resonable.... and she gives you the printing rights to the photos.
