    I am pretty much done with planning! YAY! :-) Now its just the waiting period and EXERCISING!!! I can't believe I only have a few more months! Ladies, it sure does go quick!
    Thank you thank you. I believe mine will be buffet since we are outdoors! I have to ask how I can choose. My WC gave me a huge menu. Not sure if i can switch thngs on the menu though.

    Wow June 19th is just around the corner!!!

    Are you doing OOT bags? IF so what did you put in them?

    Are you bringing anything extra with you?

    I just got my sample sashes. I plan on bringing them.

    What is your color scheme? Who is your DJ? and Photographer?

    I think from now on I am going to take it easy. I am constantly stressing things....I am stressing about school...my job... and we are about to purchase a house. So if I can be less stressed with the planning and know that when we get there everything will work out..it will really help me out!!
    24 Rooms Booked!

      It can be so stressful, I can't believe you are about to buy a house on top of all this. Good luck with the home purchase.

      How early did everyone start contacting their wedding coordinator? Mine said she would not be available until April due to attending weddings on site from Jan-April. I don't know how much of it I can start planning now...

          For the OOT Bags:

          1. I have the mini first aide kits that I got off of ebay. They were a $1.00 each.

            Kalena is my onsite wedding coordinator. Maribel was the assistant. She did a great job in passing over all information to Kalena. Maribel totally handed me over to Kalena on Feb. 24th. (I had to go back and look). The next week Kalena sent me the official letter of Welcome. So it was about 3 1/2 months of working directly with the actual wedding coordinator in advance. Yesterday, she called me which helped A LOT (to clear up some things). Her english is a lot better over the phone than in an email.

              Yes, don't stress everything will fall into place. You have a lot on your plate so don't worry extremely about the wedding it will all be taken care of. And of course, you will find this forum very helpful. There is no sense of recreating the wheel. The brides before have been of GREAT help.

              *Main color scheme is: Various shades of Pink and Canary Yellow. (With undertones of Silver/Glitz).

              *For the photographer I am using TAMMS photos the link is below for her information and here are some weddings she has done at Moon Palace. Her prices are very reasonable:
              Andrea & Nick
              Anne & Ryan
              Lorrie & Jeff
              Gina & Jimmy
              Tameka & Jason

              *For the DJ we are using J&S. At first I had picked PSAV but I found out through the grapevine that J&S has better equipment.

              *For the OTT bags, we are putting in the following items (have about 30 bags):

              1. Mini first aid to go kits from johnson and johnson. I got them for a $1.00 each off of ebay or they are at Walmart.
              2. Bath and body works bath foam (for the Jacuzzi)- from Ebay
              3. Bath and body works small scented votive candles- from Ebay
              Here is the link, she sales almost every scent of candle at $1.00 a candle.
              Bath & Body Works / Slatkin Co. Votive Candles *U Pick* Warm Vanilla Sugar - eBay (item 320498323913 end time May-06-10 10:26:12 PDT)
              4. Personalized matches
              5. Pepto Bismol, Selzer, Imodium, Advil, Tylenol Sinus, blistex and playing cards from: Minimus.biz - for all your travel size needs

                  I cant believe it, i emailed my WC, Cristina, 4 weeks ago with basic questions trying to book the evening meal and how many songs for the ceremony etc I will need and I still havent had an email back. Yet some of you have your restaurants booked, menus choosen, cake favour and decorations picked, the lot. We fly out in 7 weeks time. i'm getting so peeved. I know loads of people are saying it works out once you get there but coming from the UK I really feel like im going into this blind. i'm only getting married once and I want to minimise the 'what ifs' and have time to organise alternatives. i've already been stung once with the bouquets and only found that out by sear luck and was able to get some real touch flowers which will be ready in time. lord give me patience.....

                    Sure no problem anything I can do to Help! Because this site has helped me sooo much!

                    I believe that Moon Palace does not allow for outside vendors unless they are staying on resort property from what I have read on this site. TAMMS photos will be staying on the resort property with us for two nights however, since we have to pay for them they gave a really big discount on the photography to make the room cost reasonable. However the upside is that they can take pictures outside of the wedding time. They will be at our welcome dinner taking professional pictures. Also the price includes an additional wedding shoot either the day before your wedding or the day after.
