    Congratulations Lenita!! And thank you for posting your review on the MP. I will be getting married there in Feb 2008. Thanks for the tip on the D.J - I had been wondering about that. Did you use any of his music or just music from your IPOD? The centerpieces were beautiful - is there a cost for those? Carolina is also my coordinator - sounds like she did a great job; were you impressed with her? Did you take a look at the other options for a private reception? I had read that there was a terrace also that is available and just wondered what it looked like.

    Sorry for all the question - I hope you don't mind.

    Oh...one more....did you feel that the resort was way too huge?

    Thanks again and best wishes for your married life!!

        Which package are you getting? If you chose the free, then I would recommend that you at least get the horse and carriage, video DVD and the Mariachi band. If you get the delux, I believe they come standard in them. How many guests are you expecting? Will they all be staying at Moon Palace?

        I forgot to mention that we received our license and DVD within 3 days. We moved to LeBlanc for our honeymoon, so our wedding coordinator just sent it there. We had our license translated and got an extra copy of it.

        We also did 2 private functions, which we really didn't need. There was so much food. But, we were so busy taking pictures and mingling, I didn't even eat any of the cocktail reception food.

          Lenita,

          Your photos are beautiful. I loved Andre's sombraro...so much fun. You were truly a gorgeous bride! Your hair style and make-up were perfect!

          It looks like all of your guests had a great time. I'm so happy for you two! Congratulations!

              I think he played like 1 or 2 songs - something like Sade or something. You can chose your centerpieces from a book or if you have something you like, you can email them and ask them how much it would be. Those came from a book and we just changed a few things (color, more flowers). All of the centerpieces started around $45 per centerpiece. I think those were $65 though. There are 2 Carolina's (one from the Miami office and the other at the resort). I think you may be communicating with the Miami office right now, because I didn't find out about my coordinator until about 1 month before, but had talked to the other Carolina to book things through. Carolina worked out well. At first, I was getting irritated because I felt like she was taking too long to respond to my email, but as I think back, I believe I was just too stressed. When your wedding is right around the corner little things begin to stress you. They do this for a living and really have everything under control. I did look at the other options for the private function. We got married at noon, so we knew we wanted the dinner (or lunch in our case) reception inside in the ballroom because we expected it to be too hot. We threw in the cocktail hour later, so we chose the garden due to the location of the gazebo. It was right in front and we thought since it was only for 1 hour, our guest could take the heat. Plus it was a little shade and we provided fans during the ceremony. Really, you can't go wrong with either place. I think I took a picture of another wedding reception on a terrace. I'll see if I can find it and post it for you. The resort is huge, but I didn't think it was too big. They do have golf carts and shuttles to take you around. The only time it was a problem was for Andre's mom. Her room was a bit from the gazebo and she has bad asthma. She thought she was late (all of the guests are supposed to be there 15 minutes before) and was rushing and had a little shortness of breath after making it. But our room was really close to the gazebo so it wasn't a big deal. Plus it really has something for everyone. My little niece LOVED the kids club. Plus, since our guests stayed on the Nizuc side we saw each other throughout the day, but it's big enough so that we had our alone time.

              Keep the questions coming. I don't mind...

                Thanks everyone. I can't imagine what my wedding would have looked like without the advice and ideas from this website. You all are great! You helped me so much, I look forward to helping someone else.
