Moon Palace Wedding Review

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the review, Sarah!! I am using the photographer and getting the video at the resort too so it is good to know they are good. Did you upgrade your photo package to include a CD of all the photos?

TinaM2b, I thought I would add more details to my review. I hope this answers your question.

 

Wedding Coordinator:

Our wedding coordinator was Nancy Ariza. She did an excellent job once we were there. As I mentioned before we didn't really hear a thing from her until 2 weeks before the wedding which was extremely frustrating. And she said she didn't get our emails about a private function. But once we were there during our meeting she ended up getting everything we asked for. And the wedding day was perfect.

 

Photographs and video: We had the deluxe package. On top of that we wanted to upgrade the photo package to the superior package which included 2 hours of reception and also the photographer came to my room while me and my bridesmaids were getting ready. It also included a cd of all the pictures the photographer took. We also upgraded the videographer to include 2 hours of reception. The dvd was really nicely done. It has a main menu with the option of watching the ceremony, the picture session or the reception. Of all the things we paid extra for I think the dvd was definitely worth it. Ours turned out so nice.

 

Music: At the cocktail party we wanted to hire the mariachi band. We thought this would be included in the deluxe package. We thought if we played a cd during the ceremony that we could use the live music included in the deluxe package at the cocktail party. However this was not the case the deluxe package live music is only for the ceremony. So we ended up using the classical duet (which was a guitar and clarinet) at the ceremony. And we paid extra for the mariachi at the cocktail party. Both were great. The classical duet was really beautiful at the ceremony, we were glad we didn't go with a cd of music. And the mariachi band was really great.

For music at the private reception we got the equipment to play our own cds. we did not pay the extra for a dj. We were glad because the guy that set up the equipment stayed and acted as a dj for us anyway.

 

Flowers: My bouquet and grooms boutonniere were included in the deluxe package. And the flowers were beautiful. I loved my bouquet. We decided to pay extra for the bridesmaids bouquet and groomsmens boutonniere as well. Which were also really nice. The flowers are really beautiful.

Two table top flowers are included with the deluxe package. These are also really nice and there are 2 or 3 options to choose from.

 

Decorations: The only extra we got was 4 small flower centerpieces one for each table. They brought the flower arrangements from the ceremony to put on the cake table. They decorated both the cocktail party and private function with white table cloths white napkins and white folding chairs which was included.

 

Spa: The deluxe package included massage for the bride and groom. This was absolutely fantastic. We had this done the day before the wedding which was really nice. The package also included a manicure and pedicure for me. So I bought my bridesmaids a manicure and pedicure as well and we all got this done the evening before the wedding which turned into a girls night out before the wedding. They did a really good job with the manicure and pedicure. My nails looked great.

 

Hair and Makeup: My hair looked great. I picked a picture in a book that I wanted and my hair looked exactly like the picture. They do a really great job. The Makeup was also really great. I thought they did a great job. I don't usually wear makeup, I just told them I wanted to look natural, and I did. It was exactly what I wanted.

 

Us and all of our guests were so impressed with the moon palace. They really try to give you everything you want. So I think its safe to say that they will give you the wedding of your dreams. They definitely gave me mine

Thanks, This is all great information for our planning. There are some gray areas when it comes to what is extra. We are trying to keep the extras at a minimum but I definitely want the CD of photos and the DVD.

 

It is also good to know about the music. I was thinking the mariachi would be at the cocktail party and it was included in the wedding package. I like the duet idea.

Hello ladies!!

I'm currently looking into venues for 2011 and Moon Palace in Rivera Maya is one of my choices. Any and all information/details will be very helpful. Was the cost of the wedding expensive? Did you choose free wedding package? Did you add on cocktail/reception optional choices? What do you recommend? How many ceremony sites are there to choose from? Please help a future bride out!!

Thanks,

Sheila

    • 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?
