Hi guys,

 

I am getting married at the Moon Palace 2010.

 

I have heard that they will not allow you to bring in a photographer from Mexico but you can bring one from outside the country.

 

I am a little confused, on some websites they have galleries of weddings they worked on at the Moon Palace?

 

Can anyone help me out on this please.

 

Many thanks!

angelalanahung, check with your WC because many resorts will allow outside photogs if they are a guest of the hotel. That's what we're doing -- we are getting our photogs 1 night at the hotel so they are considered a guest and then they are allowed (@ the barcelo maya palace).. The moon palace might have a similar policy.

Hi again guys. My WC got back to me today (finally after a month) It seems that you can hire a photographer from off resort and they can be from Mexico. You just have to purchase a day pass for them.

 

Thought I would clear that up as I know there can be some confusion regarding this :)

 

For the Moon Palace btw...:)

$120 extra if we have more than 35 guests to add them to the guest count.

Both packages are for 8 hours. I could ask Claudia to customize her package to 6 hours then it would be only maybe $500 less.

In our wedding package from our resort, we will get 24 free photos from Funever as well.

Photo quality is very important to me! Thanks for your advice, I appreciate it.

I actually emailed moon palace in reference to this policy see my email and response from Moon Palace below:

Hi Yenci,
Once you have booked your wedding with us, I will provide you with your on site wedding planner. At that time, your photographer is going to have to get in contact with the wedding planner so that they can advise the photographer of the documentation that needs to be provided to the resort. In this case, you will only have to purchase the wedding pass for her.

We do not allow outside vendors, so when you are making the reservation make a note in comments that you are bringing an outside vendor. That way we can make notes in our system and make the exception.



Thank you.

Kind Regards
Yesenia Soler

Thank you Yesenia for getting back to me so quickly. I would have to pay for the photographer to stay at the hotel? That doesn't make sense if the photographer lives in mexico and will be coming only for my ceremony/reception? I thought that I would only have to pay the day pass for her? I have already booked her.

Hi Yencie,



If you were to take your own photographer, they would have to stay at the resort as one of your guests. As for the site inspection, please fill out the attached form and fax back to our office at your earliest convenience so we can schedule your appointment with an on site wedding planner.

Thank you for contacting us:
Kind Regards

I haven't actually booked a photographer yet btw...lol I'm not even sure where we are getting married yet (debating between moon palace and dreams) but as you can see if you are persistant, it seems like they'll work with you! hope this helps!

    • 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?
