      Great review!!! Everything looked beautiful!! I see you qualified for the "unlimited private functions" at the resort....is that truly free? You didn't have to pay anything for the welcome dinner and rehearsal dinners??

      Thank you!

        Is July really that hot? The ceremony, cocktail and reception are all outdoors so I'm kind of worried that everyone will wilt in the heat...

One concern that I have with the Moon Palace is that all the reviews and pictures seem to show super dark water which are not typical to Cancun waters. Is this infact true? Also, I have read several reviews that mention the water being extremly full of seaweed. My family loves Cancun and loves the clear aqua waters. They really enjoy getting in the ocean so this is sort of a big deal for me.

          Thanks :)
          The water is supposed to be a lot darker than the typical cancun water because it's on a different side...it's on the lagoon side.

            I went back to my room with literally 20 minutes to spare. I hate that you have to wait for a cart to take you from the golf place and then they take you to the nizuc lobby, but then if you catch the bus there, you go all the way back to palapas. so we decided to take our chances hoping to find a cart outside of nizuc. Thank god we did because it was so hot, i was melting! Literally. and THANK GOD for the mist and fix, it saved my life.

            I was picked up with my dad at my room, I was given my bouquet which I was completely happy with. We got on the carriage and drove off towards the gazebo. Lily went ahead on her golf cart. I think this was the hottest day we had the entire time we were there. I was thankful for the little breeze I got from the carriage!

            We arrived and I walked down the aisle. The minister we had was the cutest thing ever, loved him!! We said our I do's and then we had a champagne toast and then walked down the aisle.

            I was so glad I paid the $70 and got the rose petals. We got the most beautiful pictures!

            We went to the beach with David Pena and got some shots on the pier and the beach. I loved my pictures and thought they were a great value. I got an album with many shots, 8X10's 6's and a disc with 755 pictures. Many of my friends have paid 5k to get that and sometimes they don't even get the originals, people have to order prints.

            The cocktail hour ended up to be a bust. By the time we came back from getting our pics taken, people were sooo hot that they just wanted to get into the AC (thank god I decided to have the reception inside!!). We started walking towards nizuc and asked Lily to see if the reception room would be ready early. We got in @ 6:30.

            The reception was great. The fillet Mignon was the best meal I had all week. Again, the waiters knew what you were drinking and had backups for you as soon as you finished your last drink, they were amazing!

            My only complaint was the DJ, yes here we go again. When I started hearing songs not on my playlist I freaked out - knowing what I had read here. My husband had to ask 3 times before he finally got it and for the rest of the night it was all our playlist.

            The cake was really good, we did chocolate cake with chocolate mousse and strawberries. It looked great too, exactly like the picture I gave them.

            Love the pictures on this! How many bags of petals did you use for your wedding? We are debating on how many we will be using. did you buy them from the resort or brought them to the wedding?
