Yep, I have heard about it and I can't believe they have yet to send out any flights! My husband is deployed in Iraq right now and waiting for the volcanic ash to clear to come back home. I am hoping it will be cleared up by the end of this week!

The ash is terrible!! we go away to spain in 10days so to miss that would be bad but if it was our wedding time I don't know what we would do! i hope it clears up soon and stays that way (everything crossed!!!)

I'm so excited I just had to share my fun!

 

We have been working hard on our OOT bags and just got our Koozies ordered this weekend!!

 

We got the great idea from someone else on here and they say, "To Have and To Hold, To Keep My Beer Cold."

 

I know everyone is going to get a kick out of them!!!!

 

Anyone have any other good ideas or finds for OOT bags they would like to share?

Hi everyone!

 

I am planning a wedding for April 2011 and am considering Moon Palace. I did correspond with a wedding coordinator about using an outside photographer (but from Mexico since it is beyond our budget to fly one in). She told me that Mexican photographers weren't allowed because they have an exclusivity contract with one photography company.

 

I am just wondering what people's thoughts are on the in house photos?

 

Thanks!feedback.gif

From what I understand, if you pay for a room for a photographer they are not consider an outside vendor but rather a guest and as a guest they can take photos just as other guests will be doing. However that does increase the cost of the photographer.

In regards to the in house photographer, they are not bad, however, I wouldn't say they are really great. When you looks at the quality of photos from other photographers in the area, they seem to be much outstanding. Where as the house photographers just seem to be okay. This is just my opinion, as well as, I haven't seen all the photograhers work from MP, only 1 or 2. Having said this, I will still probably go with the MP photographers. It just gets to be too expensive after you add in the room and photography packages.

    • 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
