    Has anyone not used the horse option or the golf cart?  I don't really want to use either.  surely it's not too far just to walk up to the gazebo???

      It is a fairly large resort, depending on where your room is, it could be a long walk.  I am staying in the Sunrise section but the catholic chapel is on the far end of the Nizuc section.  It will be a long walk, in the heat, possibly windy.  That is why I plan to have them take me over on a golf cart (passing on the horse). I will be hot enough in my dress that I don't want to walk 10-15 mins in heels sweating to death. 

       

      If you go to google earth and look up the Moon Palace it will give you an idea of how large the resort really is.  We measured it with the scale provided on the google earth map and from end to end it is close to a mile long.  A walk to the gazebo could be close to a half mile walk depending on where you are staying at the resort.

          I have stayed at Aventura Spa Palace and it was nice.  Smaller than MP but still lots of options for food, etc.  When we went on our Zip Line excursion we stopped at Playacar Palace and it seemed really nice.  A lot smaller so less food options, but I loved the location in Playa del Carmen, you are right in the city and within walking distance to stuff a little more culturally related to Mexico as the resorts are a little vanilla.  I have also heard great things about Beach Palace.

            We are staying at sun palace for our honeymoon. It's just down the road from mp, and adults only! Beach looks gorgeous too.

            I am also passing on the horse. I'm just going to request the the golf cart stop kinda far back, so I'm won't be getting dropped off right on the aisle in the thing :)

              Moon Palace is HUGE! I couldn't have imagined walking from my room to the gazebo, in my dress, or in the heat! Don't get me wrong, we did walk a lot at MP every other day, however I wouldn't have been up for doing that on wedding day. At first when we chose MP I wasn't interested in the horse and carriage, but the more photos I saw the more convinced I got. Now, I'm soo glad we done it...what an entrance!

               

              If your really against it, you could go for a golf buggy...

                  Hi Ladies, does anyone know how many songs I will need for a civil ceremony? And when in the ceremony should they be played? I have no idea... Thanks x

                    If I remember right, we had a song playing for hubbie walking down the aisle, one for the bridesmaid, one for my entrance, one in the middle, think when we were signing stuff, and one at the end. Hope this helps :)

                      We had one for the moms walking down the aisle (or bridesmaids), the carriage approaching, bride, sand ceremony, and recessional . 5 in all.
