Congrats to the new Mrs. Moulten. You look gorgeous and it looks like you guys had a blast.

 

Janelley100- thanks for the info. I was reading through previous posts and saw that you had some difficulties with a certain "certified destination wedding" TA. I also signed up for with this site. Since I was planning for 2011, they told me they couldn't get any pricing, etc for any resorts because it was too soon. Also the particular TA I was assigned to didn't have anything nice to say about MP. My future in-laws have been going there for years and love it though, so obviously we trust their judgement over some random TA we don't know. So anyway I have been in contact with MP directly in getting our wedding date and time reserved. I was thinking abnow out emailing this TA now to see what kind of rates he could get, but after reading what you've went through and the fact that he was not keen on MP to begin with was thinking about giong elsewhere or just directly through MP. Did you find that the TA found your guests better prices? That's kind of what it seems like through this site.

 

Ashnic2005- I'm glad to hear that you are having no difficulties booking directly through MP. I'm just worried that my guests may need that guidance with booking that a TA can give. That way they could do flights through them as well.

 

I'm so undecided. I guess I have time though to figure it out.

When you ladies sent out your STD's did you include contact info for your TA's and/or your wedding website with info for booking info?

 

I feel like I should probably include this info somehow so that people know what to expect as far as pricing so as they can start saving.

Yes, I did. That is why I sent out the save the dates close to a year in advance so that guest would know the cost and start saving for the trip. On my save the dates I put the wedding website. However, on the website was Janina's (Miami Office) information so that they could contact her directly.

Good Luck in your decision. I think it will work out either way.

Hi Everyone-

I got the petals through customs no problem, I had my recipts ready but never had to show them to anyone-- we got the green lights!!

I got the flowers from Realistic Silk Wedding Flowers, Natural Touch and Silk Bridal Bouquets and Stephania did amazing. If you contact her let her know that Brooke sent you- she was awesome with me and making the changes that I had asked for! I got 4 boutineers, my bouquet and 3 wristlets for around $179!!! They still look as good as when I got them.

I let my family and friends take photos and used the videographer from Moon Palace and they did awesome putting it together. A++

I got a Travel Agent and included just her info because they can negotiate the good rates AND get you all of your freebies which came in unbelieveably handy!

Hi ladies! I'm new to the board and am really needing some direction. I've come across the Moon Palace's website and thought their wedding packages and resort looked absolutely amazing.

 

We are planning to get married next summer (late June/early July 2011). However, I really don't know where to start with booking. I e-mailed the wedding coordianators at the MP for info about the resorts, but am waiting to hear back still.

 

We'd prefer to go through a travel agent to help arrange travel plans, but my FH was told by an agent that she couldn't help us this early since rates haven't been set for next year.

 

I'm feeling a little bit overwhelmed and want to get started soon - I do special event planning for living and I'm very excited to start planning our wedding :)

 

We'll probably have about 50 guests - HELP :)

 

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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
