    So what color scheme are you ladies using?

    I was so set on sticking with my black,white, and green, but I think the black would be too stark and will not necessary flow with the setting.

    Do you guys think steel gray would be too cold for the setting?

      Hey girls -
      I need your opinion!

      We currently have our reservation set for 6pm. Do you believe this will be too late/too dark for decent beach photos? I would like to have sunset pictures, but the sun sets right around 6pm in April. The 5pm timeslot on the same day has already been reserved, however the 4pm is available the same day and a 5pm timeslot is available the day prior. What do I do?

        Thanks for posting the link to the MP photographers! Their pictures look WAY better than some of the other resort photographers I have seen!

                Hey Marie,

                My wedding is at 5pm, and I am bringing my own photographer so I can take pictures before and after.

                I think that if your wedding is at 6pm, you can take pictures before (I heard you can upgrade your package and have the resort photographer take those pictures, but I don't know, you should ask). I would probably change the wedding to 4pm... (although it would be hotter) just to be on the safe side in terms of getting more light for your pictures and make sure you get all the shots you want. But that is coming from someone that cares a lot about the pictures.

                As far as the carpet, I read reviews that it can get very windy at the Moon Palace, so you have to bring a carpet that is heavy because I read some reviews where a girl took a linen carpet and even when they put flowers and mariachis on the carpet, the carpet would still move.

                    Hi Ladies,

                    Newbie here! Just wanted to introduce myself - my name is Janice. My FI and I are set to wed at the MP on May 14, 2009.

                    We've arranged for the Deluxe Symbolic Package several months ago. I just happened upon this website and spent the last two days reading all 87 pages of your posts. There is so much valuable info that so many of my questions have already been answered!

                    My original WC at the FL office was Elizabeth and thanks to you wonderful ladies, I found out that she was no longer there and called the office earlier today and discovered that my new WC is Marlyn. If it weren't for you guys, I wouldn't have known otherwise.

                    Anyway, I am currently in the process of arranging for a group rate with my TA.

                    I've gotten a lot of feedback already from my family and friends that it's going to be too expensive, as it sounds like many of you ladies are getting. My friends and family are all too accustomed to last minute vacations at bargain basement prices, so the quotes I'm getting back seem outrageous to them. I've had far too many people ask me if they can still attend my wedding if they stay at another resort and I don't really know what to tell them as I would prefer that everyone stay at the MP, so needless to say the last week or so has been a little stressful.

                    So that's me and where I'm at in the wedding planning. Sorry for the long winded message. I can't wait to hear more about your special day and I can't wait to share mine.

                      Hey Myen,

                      I tell my guests that inquire about other resorts that:

                      1. If they stay off the property, it will cost them about 100 dollars each to come to the wedding and the welcome dinner/entertainment.

                      2. The resort has a specific percentage of people that HAVE to stay on site for you to have your wedding there (I don't know exactly what it is... but I think it is 85%)... I tell my guests 90%.

                      ... for the guests that are REALLY concerned with the costs...

                      I suggest they stay 3 nights at MP and then go find a bargin basement place elsewhere for after the wedding. I have a good majority of our guests that prefer it that way... especially those with timeshares, ect. They get to be a part of the wedding festivities... and then they get to have a vacation.

                      I'm still working on a cost comparison... I just got back from a surgery, so I had to put it on hold. I'll keep working on it and see what I can come up with in the next week.
