We don't have a ton of money to spend and I would like to look at other resorts if Half Moon is way too expensive. Any information would be very much appreciated! Thank you and I love love love this forum!!! You guys are they best!
We were originally getting married at Half Moon and for a wedding of that size you are looking at upwards of $20K-$30K depending upon what you want. We are now getting married in Ochi but the staff at Half Moon is very nice and was gracious enough to let us use our deposit that we paid for our Honeymoon there. We will be honeymooning at Half Moon for about a week. If you have the budget I would definitely recommend them. I have a lot of info they sent me as I was planning my original wedding there, so if you have any other questions feel free to ask

With our budget, AI was the way to go. My understanding is that Half Moon has an AI plan, but it doesn't cover certain restaurants, mini bar items, etc. I really just wanted to get somewhere and not have anything else to worry about.
We would still consider going there on a trip for just the two of us.

But when I arrived everything was exactly as I wanted. They were great and very flexible. My coordinator's name was Racquel. I selected the flowers when I arrived as the garden is on the property. My sister was supposed to do my hair but do to hurricanes she could not fly out of Florida. I had my hair done on the property in their salon and I was completely happy. We stayed 10 days and never needed to leave the property for anything. Unless we chose to participate in particular excursion. It is slightly pricey but well worth every penny. I gave my guests that weren't able to afford the hotel 2 other price options at different hotels. Half Moon said they had all these rules for guests to visit the property but nothing was every an issue.

Our total cost for a 50 person brunch with mimosas and a 10 day all inclusive stay was $10K. When I added my flowers and such it was a total of $15K. You really don't need any extra flowers beyond the bouquet and boutineers (sp?) because the locations are sooo beautiful. My pictures looked as if we were cut/paste into a fake background because they were so awesome. If anyone is really interested in this location I can dig up my pictures and show them. The photographer was pricey but I paid for 36 pictures and was completely happy. Luckily my brother was a film major in college so he videotaped it for me.
Oh the other great things was. We would go to dinner and take mayb 20 people and put the cost all on 1 room. Well, everyone staying in that room (2) people had an all inclusive plan so the dinner for 20 people was totally free. We also would order loads of room service to a reoom with all inclusive plans and it was free. Our meals covered all restaurants and drinks, including the minibar.

If your guests are not staying at the resort, they cannot attend the wedding at all. They do not provide day passes. Unless, they changed their policy. You probably want to plan activities with your guest too. You will have to travel quite a distance to get to everything, because of it's location.
Good Luck, J
