It looked amazing and was completely worth it.  My only complaint was that one string of lanterns did not stay lit. In fact, I don't know if they were ever lit. 

 

We did pay $180 for alter flowers during the wedding.  They then moved them to our cocktail hour (Tucan Gazebo) and then go the wedding reception by our cake table and guestbook. 

 

Our wedding was a catholic wedding in the Immaculate Conception Chapel, beautiful.  Father Benito was interesting...

 

As for pictures try this link http://www2.snapfish.com/snapfish/roommapping/groupname=alieandpaulswedding/groupid=54641027/groupownerid=3265834027/  with the code word: wedding  This does have pictures of the entire week from guests so it's a lot go to through. I recommend Paul Gass's photos.  He was a friend there with a great camera and took a lot of wedding.  I will try and get mine up today but neither I nor the groom took pictures during the wedding. I think one of the groomsman had the camera.

my understanding is that the 400 a table, is inclusive of food and drink. with enough rooms or room nights, you can potentially get it for free!

I'm new the the forum and still shopping around for a resort and having a very hard time deciding!

 

I love the palace resorts, but my big question is: if you have a private reception does the $400 per table you're charged include food/drinks or is the meal and bar charged extra? I've spent hours hunting around to find this answer and I can't seem to figure it out. It seems at a lot of hotels you're charge per head or per table for the set up, and then you need to bay $40-$60 per person for the meal.

 

Thanks!

Hi Marta, I'm also getting married on the 23rd!!! What time is your wedding?

We are getting married in the Nizuc gazebo, H2B is reliogious but understands how I feel so we are going down the civil ceremony route :)
We booked through an independent but with Virgin holidays. We figured that if we just went to a first choice/ thompson we would ony get their deals but the indepedent stocks all hols and has no loyality to a particular company (plus we wanted to help a small business - they have given us great deals in the past). In the end we had to go with virgin as we wanted to fly onto Orlando for our honeymoon and 99% of the other companies didnt offer twin centres. The lady phoned up the virgin holiday line and booked us that way. I didnt pay anything as we ok-ed the free package to start with ( i know virgin offer their own upgrade but didnt want to take it straight away as i wanted to check what the hotel offered before we signed up to anything - might get a better deal booking direct with the hotel) I just realised that if we are having the catholic chapel I prob wont be able to have the decorations from the sapphire/diamond collection!!!! bummer!

Just so everyone knows I have established that David does work for the Moon Palace and you have to request him if you want him. I have heard that they will only assign David to you if you go for a bigger photography package though.
