Moon Palace - Cancun Review - July 11, 2009

Recommended Posts

Tina, what a great review! I really need to get on writing mine - I just feel like maybe I should wait until I have more pictures! Maybe I can write it an add them later!

 

You look absolutely gorgeous and like you had a fabulous time! I'm so happy for you - you deserved an incredible wedding!

 

By the way, I swear I walked right by you one night. I almost asked if it was you, but I am too shy like that! Matt and I were walking back to our building through the Nizuc courtyard area where the golf cart pick up was (next to the back lobby entrance by the salon) and I saw a tall red haired woman with a Texas accent taking a picture of someone with a golf cart driver...and I turned to Matt and I was like, I wonder if that's Tina?! LOL!

Hey Nina, Our time was great!! Ha, It could of been me!! I took several of those photos.

We actually was thinking about you the last day we were there and looking back, I wish we had of met in person. Kelena said she could of found you. We had an extra bottle of champagne, wine and several other things I bagged up to try and get to you but we ran out of time.

Everything is so gorgeous! I loved your dress. Do you have a name for the mariachi band? I thought your sand ceremony was beautiful and I love how you included your family.

The mariachi band worked for Moon Palace. They did an outstanding job. The mariachi music for our wedding was one of my favorite things. DH said from the very beginning that was what he wanted and what a great choice it was. We didn't have to do anything because they have it down.

Our sand ceremony was very special. First and foremost, it did include my sons but it also included our guests. Each guest added a seashell when they arrived to the gazeba and we left the rest a surprise. It truly was the blending of everyone.

These were our words:

TINA and BENNIE -Before you met, your lives were on separate roads…. Each going in different directions and leading to different destinations. Somehow along the way you met, fell in love, and today you find yourselves standing together at the entrance of a new path that will forever join your once separate journeys into one.

Before each of you, there is a container of sand. Your individual sand represents the separate journeys you once were on. They also represent your own sets of friends and families that were once apart and will now be joined. As you pour your individual sand, it represents the coming together of your friends and family through your marriage, into one.

(PAUSE until sand is being poured)

Christian and Carson, please join us. (PAUSE)

Just as we have now bound TINA and BENNIE to one another, we will now celebrate the unification of CHRISTIAN and CARSON into this family. TINA and BENNIE has poured their sands into the vase, showing that their marriage is the foundation of this family.

As CHRISTIAN and CARSON now add their sands (Boys pour sand), we are reminded that though we are all different people, it is our individuality that adds to the tapestry of the family. Like the sands poured before , so these sands will also mix and be unable to be separated.

TINA and BENNIE, As the sand has blended together, your lives are now joined…. Your separate journeys through life are now one. Your friends and family are as one . For now, you will share those who are in your lives and will walk hand in hand along the path of your marriage – United and Strong as husband and wife, as inseparable as these grains of sand.

    • 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?
