We are doing Moon Palace... but there are lots of Palace Resorts in the area... and they do some great promotions for getting groups booked there.

Based on everything I have seen on Moon Palaces website, and some reviews I have read, as well as some of the things I have heard personally about weddings there, both Moon and Dreams are very comparable. It seems like Moon is a little more expensive, but if your budget isn't a HUGE issue, I would definitely check them out. They almost appear more luxurious as opposed to Dreams who is more service oriented. A friend of mine had their wedding there and they loved it!!

I know that it is scary not knowing out of experience what the reosrt holds for you, but keep this in mind... If you go with the "Im on the lookout" attitude, something will go wrong. No matter where you stay. Nothing is ever 100% perfect. Where ever you decide on, there is always a chance... you just have to make a good decision and try to stick to it.

I know its hard, we changed our local 3 times! :)

Sorry to hear about your plans! But thank goodness you have time to replan now. Just remember - people will always have something bad to say about EVERYWHERE you stay! I know what you mean though - once DH mind is made up that is it!! Anyways we got married at the Moon Palace in Cancun and from what I have heard it is a lot like dreams. It is bigger but they split it up into 2 sides and so you can book your guests all on one side and then it doesn't seem so big. Seriously we ran into our guests everywhere! And they have a gazebo actually 3 gazebos overlooking the ocean and you can have a private reception - sometimes free depending on how many people you book. Anyways just a thought - if you have any questions feel free to PM me! Good Luck!

Sorry to hear about the change of venue. Hopefully you find a resort that works for both you and your FI. I am sure where ever you have your wedding, it will be gorgeous.

Thanks for forwarding me to your post. Funny that your FH started the research, mine is getting into the process too and is realizing the difficulty. I feel like every time we get to a spot where we are ready to send in our deposit, another added charge is noticed. We really like the Palladium but they are charging us for the ceremony, extra $20/pp over 8 for the ceremony, then $45-55 pp for a private reception. This seems like a bit of double dipping since our guests are all staying at the resort AI. Also, having challenges getting a room block set up. They want us to pay them, then collect the $ from our guests. This is tacky and makes it much more difficult. Let me know if how your search is going! Thanks!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
