Moon Palace 2008 & 2009 Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!! I am trying to narrow down a resort for my DW and Moon Palace is one of the top 3. I have a question for those of you who've been married there already....my fiance and I are hoping to qualify for the "unlimited private functions" offer. Has anyone on this thread qualified for that? If so, is it truly free? You don't have to pay for welcome or rehearsal dinners??

 

Thank you!!

Nicole

Which is a better location for the reception? The Lake Terrace or the Tucan Terrace?

 

My travel agent asked which one and we were on the phone so I quickly said the Tucan Gazebo and Tucan Terrace, with cocktail hour in the Tucan garden. I loved Mrseddy's pics. I don't know exactly how many people are coming we are up to 40 so far... I expect about 60 people. Is that too much time in the Tucan section? Is it too small for that many people to dance? HELP!!!!smile41.gif

I have a similar question to slaslappyhappy.. I was thinking either the between the terrace tucan or the Vernado? I am having approx 50 guests. I am having a beach ceremony! Any information would help.

 

slaslappyhappy- do you think they accommodate according to how many guests you have? I noticed one of the places you had chosen accommodates 130 guests?

 

How far are you in your planning? I am somewhat nervous now! I would love to share ideas with you I am getting married in July so i am one month ahead of u!

So far we booked, I have my dress and bm dresses ordered, my FI STILL did not pick out what he (or the GM) is wearing!!! We sent out save the dates, I am not sure when to send out the invites.... I found out there are 3 other weddings on my day so I got my travel agent to call and reserve the Tucan Gazebo. They seem to be more willing to work with a travel agent than the actual bride!

 

We chose the sapphire package, and I am talking with the decor company (decocancun/zuniga) about a light up dance floor. I saw it on one of the Dreams wedding reviews and it is one of the things I really want! I love futureMrsEddy's review, so I think I am going to get the same table runners and chair sashes as her. I like the lanterns but they are another $300 and I don't know if the Tucan is okay without them... Not sure about the centerpieces yet... if I should lug them down or not idk!!!

 

I love frangipani (plumeria) so I ordered my flowers from plumeria's wedding boutique because I have 7 bm and the bouquets are $125 each at the MP. It was a lot cheaper, I still have no clue about centerpieces. I also have no clue about the OOT bags because I need to know how many people are going! If a lot I will get a cheapie, if a few I will get something nicer.

 

My biggest stress is the bookings... I have 38 people going so far but 10 of them are staying off the resort! A bunch of others claim they are coming but have not booked yet (incl. 3 of my bm!!!) What about you jodimichelle, how are your plans coming along?

My dress came in. I went to see it the other day! I am nervous about how it will completely fit. It is still big on me, so I cannot really picture it.

My bridesmaids dresses have been ordered. hopefully sometime in May.

We are gettin married on the beach so we decided to use ISLAND IMPORTER for my fiance and his groomsmens attire. You should check them out!

 

 

My STD were sent out in JULY. My guests had a good year if not more to plan for my wedding. Invites my fiance owns a graphic design company so our invitations are ALMOST ready. He is currently working for his customers so our invites are on the bottom of his list right now. We plan and I hope to send them out mid MARCH. I would say depending on how long you sent you STD - you can always wait until MAY?

We chose the complementary package. We also spoke with the Decor company, but I have not decided what to do really. Light up dance floor looked really nice. I think we might get those tall led lights and some equip. my fiance also owns a Entertainment Company so he will be dealing with all that.

 

 

I was thinking about having white linens with some accent colors for our table. My colors are green and coral. Everything you add seems to be more money there. But oh well.

 

I just checked them out they are very pretty. Question -how are you going to bring them with you including your bridesmaids??

 

I found the biggest stress so FAR is our guests and booking.. We have approx 10 rooms booked in MP and one that is off site.

 

4 of my bridesmaids have yet to book -so frustrating!!

 

Where in NY are you from?

 

I am currently trying to make a list of what I want to bring, do , organize. Buit I don't feel like i have accomplished much. I have checked out two reviews and I know I saved other brides reviews but I have misplaced them. What I am doing is taking what the say and what i find helpful and inoutting it into my "list"

 

When in Aug is ur wedding? Will ur Wedding be legal in Mexico or are you getting married here first?

We also needed a solicitor to photocopy our passports and sign and stamp to say we are who we say we are. Both docs were photocopied again and then forwarded onto Virgin. We keep the originals and take them with us.
Hope this helps.
Hi lady, I'm also from the UK, but didn't book our wedding through a TA, we booked direct with MP. My wedding co-ordinator has confirmed with me many times that we only need certified certs....I went back and forth with her many times on this, because on the youandyourwedding.co.uk forum soo many ppl say they have been told by TA's that you need to go down the route you did...but she says time and time again that for moon palace you don't need to get the certs embossed. Just wondering if it was your wedding co-ordinator who told you this, or Virgin?

I think the Tucan Terrace can easily fit up to 60 people. It doesn't look so at first, but they do a good job of seeing up the area to maximize the space. We had 45 people including hubby and I set up with 5 tables and 1 table for just the two of us. Of the 5 tables, one had 10 people, one had 9 and the other three had 8. If you look at my review, there's a good picture of the Terrace right after they set it up and with some shifting, another table could have easily fit. Also, although a lot of my guests danced, there were quite a few who were saddled up by the bar or just enjoying the scenery by the beach or at the tables. We never had the sense the "dance floor" was overcrowded.

Hi, it was on the documents Virgin gave us. I had to send them a copy for them to keep on file and take the originals with us to Moon Palace. I hope they do need them otherwise I just wasted nearly £100 getting them posted stamped and posted again... wouldnt put it past Virgin. they dont seem to know what they are doing most of the time! ..

Hi Girls

 

I am going a little crazy right now. I have been stressing getting married on the beach since day one of the booking process. And I was sent and email saying they have me down in the GAzebo. I am going for the free wedding package, but want to be on the beach. I hope they will resolve this ASAP.

 

For those of you who had your ceremony on the BEACH when did you stress the location and when was it finalized. I am getting married in 4 months!

 

 

Thank you

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
