How as your experience been so far?

    Thanks :-)
    the wedding planner for the villas is really organized, although not so quick to respond. We had sent a few emails back and forth like 9 months before the wedding and really hadn't settled on alot of things. Well 6 months till the wedding I get a huge email, well written, addressing everything and asking for decisions I hadn't made yet. If you need advise on music and flowers there are some really great forums, but I found that what everyone loved on the forums, is what the wedding planner also recommended. what is your date? and where in VA do you live? I also think there are many decisions you probably don't fully commit to until you get there. Happy Planning!!

      Hello everyone! Just booked at Moondance and am very excited. For those who have already booked - who is your wedding planner? Are all of them very good? Any recommendations / watch-outs?

        I am also looking into having my wedding at the Moondance Villas. Does anyone know if you can bring in outside vendors for the wedding?

          Hi Jodyann,

          Sorry for the late reply. I was on vacation for a week. I live in Alexandria, VA. I reserved my date yesterday and it's 8/15/09. My wedding planner is Oneika. Who is yours? I sent her an email yesterday and hopefully, i'll hear from her soon. BTW, when is yours?

            Ssleenyc & Stbmrsperry - Congrats!!

            Ssleenyc - Just booked mine too. MY wp is Oneika. I sent her my first email yesterday and i'm waiting for her reply. What's your date?

            Stbmrsperry - I don't think they have any restrictions on vendors. I haven't heard from my planner yet but i will let you know as soon as i find out.

              my date is 11/14. Linus is my planner but so far I have only heard from Kerry. She asked some basic questions but I really would like to start off speaking with Linus. I think she is very busy and new. And they are probably handling weddings as they come. I am hesitant to just give her a number though when it comes to budget. I would rather try to get a sense of what I am envisioning will cost and then scale back when I understand the tradeoffs.

                Ask her to send you pictures of your options. In the mean time, Kim told me to go to Jamaica Wedding Photography by Paula and Damian : Photojournalism, Tensing Pen, Montego Bay. Some of the pics were taken at Moon Dance Villa. Click on "Slideshows Gallery" and browse through. It kind of helps to see how they do it.

                  Any Moon Dance Villas brides out there? I would love to know how your plans are developing or the outcome of your wedding at the Villas. Do tell! Thanks.

                    Hi negrilbridetoo, Congrats! Planning is okay. I'm just a little worried cuz my planner doesn't seem to be very responsive. It takes her around two weeks or so...just to reply to my emails. My plan was to finish reserving some of the major things at least four moths before the big day....but I don't think that's gonna happen. I'm just hoping that maybe when my day gets closer she’ll give me a little more attentions. We’ll see...

                    BTW, I noticed you’re in Maryland. I’m in Alexandria, Virginia. So, when is your wedding? Mine is in August. How far are you with the planning?

                      Thank you and Congrats to you too rydm!
                      I wish you luck with your planning. It must be frustrating to have to wait for information like that. But I am hopeful that they will come through in a timely manner for you.

                      Yes, I am in Maryland and am planning for a May 1, 2010 wedding. It has been such a process trying to find the right resort though. We would like to have the resort finalized today after spending many days 'ironing out the wrinkles'. I guess next I will focus on invitations? :-)
