Hello Future BP brides!  I was married there in July 23, 2011.  It was amazing!  The wedding coordinator Rebecca was great!  I hired my own photographer, but because I had the Amber package the resort photography was included.  After see the resort photos...SO GLAD I hired my own.

 

We had about 50 guest.  Were comp'd 2 room nights, had a free reception after the wedding, and I paid for a cocktail party the night before.  MX is so humid that I did not need to steam my dress.  I hung it up in the room and let nature take over.

 

We were married and had the reception on the sky terrace.  We used the resort UV company and created our own playlist for the events.

 

We brought welcome bags for our guest, and the resort delivered them to the guest room for $3.00/ bag.  We were treated so well! I recommend to everyone!  The Sky Terrace was beautiful!  The beach is beautiful!!!

Ok, I know this is a little late considering the thread is a few years old. However I figured I would put my input here for future brides. We just got back from having our wedding at Beach Palace Cancun (Dec wedding). I have to say that it was AMAZING! The resort is beautiful. The pictures don’t do it justice at all. The service there is incredible and every single person in my wedding group had a great time. The resort is a little smaller than Moon Palace but I much prefer BP. The location is way better. You have easy access to downtown, the mall and pretty much the rest of the strip. Moon Palace is very isolated so your guest are pretty much stuck on the resort unless they want to pay the hefty 40$ each way cab ride to and from the strip. We found the bus doesn’t take you to the moon palace resort so the cab is your only option unless you take the free shuttle which is twice a day in the morning..... that sucks because it restricts timing….

 

As far as the wedding goes, our coordinator was Marco. He was AMAZING..... I highly recommend asking for him as your coordinator.....he went above and beyond and made everything perfect. We had some issues with our offsite coordinator... although she was really nice,,, she was a little unorganized (maybe overworked,, i dont know) Her response time was really long (about a couple weeks) and she had a lot of our orders incorrect and there were so many mistakes with the details... i dont like to leave bad reviews so im not going to drop her name but i think she must have been over swamped or something…. because i really had to micromanage her work...... But Marco jumped through so many hoops and tried to fix them even though it was last minute.. he took care of everything and made sure I didnt really need to do work... hes organized,,, efficient.. and has great taste!!! He really works with you to make your vision come true... . I definitely recommend you confirming with your onsite coordinator all the details of the wedding before showing up..i wish i had just worked with marco from the beginning ... it would have saved me a lot of trouble.... **recommendation to the resort: they should keep the same coordinator for planning and executing the event 

 

The service staff was unbelievably great. They were so polite and kind... they kept the drinks filled, tables clean, they were constantly running back and forth giving into every need of our guests. Everyone was ranting about how great the service was. 

 

We ordered some stuff from the decoration vendor (Zuniga) They're really helpful in the planning process. The items we ordered worked great, they did set up late though and that sort of threw off our time (sister had to complete the deco with stuff we brought from home and she only had 20mins to do it even though we had planned for 1.5hrs) 

 

Photography was phenomenal.... VERY professional and although its pricey.... you get amazing pictures... our photographer was Paco Aguilar.... with Dream Art Photography…..great photographer.. he made it seem so effortless... the beach was CROWDED and in the photos it appears as if we are alone.... Great job... highly recommend them! 

 

As I posted above,,, here’s the video of our photos if you’re interested: http://youtu.be/tBO60gIGSwc?list=UUlghc4NNa3ca7mT2pkYzbOw

 

Food- The food is amazing!! We had a couple events before the actual wedding day so we tried out some of the other menu options. The head Chef who orchestrated our menu is Chef William (don’t know the last name) He is very professional and nice… Great personality and a wonderful chef. The first night we had the Mexican Buffet… I highly recommend it!!! It was DELICIOUS! I wish I had ordered this for the other nights as well.. The Chicken Mole was mouth watering!  This menu isn’t your typical (Americanized Mexican Cuisine) it will take yours and your guests taste buds for a ride! The second event we had Italian… this was great too,,, just not my favorite.. everyone else really enjoyed it…… the wedding night we had the French menu… everything was delicious… my guests raved about the food… for the cocktail hours… we had the superior deluxe menu, the Mexican cocktails…. it was beautiful…. Everything was amazing… thank you to the kitchen staff for all their hard work..….. we truly enjoyed the food.

 

DJ- Our DJ was really great… they were very accommodating with our music type/preference.. I brought an ipod to play Persian/Arabic/Turkish music…the DJ did a GREAT job encorporating the music into more modern pop/dance music of his own… we danced NON stop…. So much fun!!!! My only complaint is that at the end of the night… he cut the last song halfway inbetween…. And just shut everything off….. lights… music… all the above… it was a little abrupt and without warning…. Not the best way to end the night…. Another thing is his accent was very strong and it was hard to understand him on the microphone at times… but as a dj bigggg PLUS!!! Thanks J

 

Spa- Okay… so I made the mistake of not doing research of the Spa services before going there…. So everything I did was last minute… their spa is really nice…. The ladies who work are really sweet… massages are a little weak for my taste… but nice… the nail salon is decent…. I highly recommend getting your hair and makeup done at the salon…If you use your resort credits you just pay the tax so it only comes out to like $15.. which is crazy worth it!!! I had Minerva (I think I am butchering her name) She is REALLLLY good. Shes had 30+ years of experience in bridal hair… I just showed her a picture and she turned my crazy curly hair into a beautiful side-do…. There was so much wind and dancing and humidity… my hair didn’t move the WHOLE time… the next morning… it still looked like that!!! Haha… I did my own makeup because I didn’t make an appointment on time… You have to be physically there to book so make sure you do that the FIRST day you arrive.

 

TIPS:

 

Whatever planning you do,,,, from booking… to prices…. To details of food.. color . times..etc… do it in EMAIL! There were so many mistakes… I was grateful I did everything in email… have your smartphone with you because you will have to pull it out to show proof in the email…. This is very important… brides to be…. Don’t be lazy in this aspect!!

 

Tours/Events/Spa- I wish we had more info before coming… so I could have better coordinated with my guest of the services they offer at the resort…. Call the resort and see if they can email you info before you go… it would have been really helpful in our case… we did the Chichen Itza Tour… it was amazing to see the ruins but the tour was a waste of time.. It’s a 3hour drive because they stop at small bazaar to sell you things.. the tour guide was great but he talked a lot and wasted a lot of our time with fluff… we had only a little amount of time to explore on our own… pretty much a 1hr drive took 3hrs…. you get the point? Probably better to get a car and go on your own? We also did the Isla Mujeres tour… it was cool… boat ride to the island VERY rocky… warning if you get sea sick.. I think they rocked the boat on purpose?!… not a fan of the dolphin area bc I don’t like captive dolphins…but if you want to swim with the dolphins sign up at the resort.. you can use your resort credits.. the food there was horrible… very dirty.. the guy dropped the spatula…. Spit on it and wiped it on his pants L we took a cab ride to the palace resort on the island… you can eat and drink for free there…so we hung out … chilled on the beach.. its pretty low key… kinda boring… but relaxing…. The crowd there were mainly older

 

I can go on and on..but the point is if I could go back and do it again.. I would!!! Over and over again!! I highly recommend destination weddings… you get a full vacation with your family and friends and it’s a wedding no one will forget!!! Best of luck and Congratulations!!!!!!!!!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
