    Is this for the private dinners that are $400/table of ten, or for the dinner reservation for 25 or 35 people included in the wedding packages?

      I think they are talking about the private dinner.

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
        6. signature carmel PopCorn (they have 4 flavors): Personalized Caramel Corn - Wedding Favor - WeddingFavors.com
        7. At a Crossword Puzzle about us. I got this from Etsy.com. It is great because it gives your guest fun facts about you as a couple and its fun to do.

        *WOW!! we are bring so many extras! lol I am actually planning on shipping some of these out in advance. If you want to know where I got any of this stuff, just let me know. I am pretty good at finding bargains :-) Everything came from online stores except for the picture frames (TJMAXX).

        You are awesome. Thank you for posting all this helpful information!! I will have to go one by one and see what I will use for my bag. I will also have about 30 bags myself.

          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...
          You have plenty of time! Do all the things that you have "control over"- Example: Your dress, Your bridesmaid dresses, the guys outfits, color scheme.

          Oh oh and as SOON as the flights come out for you date, telll and tell and retell all your guests, bc at that point the flights are at their cheapest! Hopefully, they will listen. No one listened to us and began complaining... but prices fluctuated, but within a decent time for people to get good rates!

          Save the dates ?? did u do them

          good luck

            The hair dryers at the sun palace were attached to the wall. I would assume these are the same.

              OK....I don't mean to alarm anyone....but just in case you haven't seen the news lately....the producer of the show Survivor has been accused of by the Mexican government of the murder of his wife AT MOON PALACE. Her body was found today in a gutter at Moon Palace in Cancun. OK.....so my guests are freaking out now. I've already heard..."Quite the up-scale place you picked Chelle!"

              OK PEople...this is not a random killing...this is a domestic murder at a resort, which is what I am reminding everyone of. But seriously.....none of us really needed this to happen at the resort we are getting married at. Shit will happen....but Geez...why on my watch!

              Had to vent. Sorry.

                WHAT!! that is terrible! but you are right there is nothing we can do bout it. It is a domestic murder that has nothing to do with an actual murderer going around hurting people. Everything should be cleared up by the time we get there, right? I've definitely got to ask Kalena about this one....Very sad news.

                  Geezz. Terrible. So the producer of Survivor killed his wife? Wow that is horrible. Yes. it is terrible that it happened at Moon, but no worries. That does not affect us. Yes it is a gruesome story and yes we are getting married there, but our guests should have no problems. We live in a crazy world. I wonder, did he have a plan?? ugh so terrible.

                    I had a little bit of a freak out reading about the murder on Foxnews...but I'm better now! I talked with my TA about it, and she said the only reason you heard about this one, was because of who he is. She said she has heard of murders several times at other big resorts. This was isolated and that is the only good news out of the whole situation. I don’t think any of us have anything to worry about….but it’s still a little nerve racking!

                    So I am going to try not to think about it, and try to turn that stress into thoughts and prayers for the family of the lady who was murdered.

                      My guests are freaking out as well, moreso the people who were uneasy about traveling to Mexico in the first place, so this is just great! I don't know what to do to ease people's minds.
