    If we do the sand ceremony we were going to use the sand from the beach in Cancun as the "base" and maybe buy the other two different ones. Another bride on here used shells to pour sand in a vase. It was a really cute idea.

    We're going to stay at the Sun Palace for an extra five days after our wedding week at the Moon Palace :) My mom is flying home with our kids so we can be alone! :)

      Be careful when taking the sand from the beach back home. You're not supposed to take soil from another country into the US or another country for that matter. If anything, buy a bag of sand that's sandy color (or a color that matches the sand at MP) and play it off as purchased sand rather than Mexican beach sand... you might have to show proof of purchase, like a receipt to customs. Trust me, I wanted to do this too but I'll just settle for color sand.

        Thanks for the sand ceremony info!! I love the idea of using the sand from the beach as a base. It sounds like maybe I need to look into the legality of that or how well it is enforced. I think we will definitely do one!

        Our Honeymoon will be at Excellence Playa Mujeres for 5 days after we leave Moon Palace. I'm really excited, but don't know too much about Excellence. If any of you have stayed there I'd love to hear what you think (unless it's really bad...we've already booked it so there's no going back!)

        Also...So, are there certain excursions that are included at Moon Palace or are all of them extra? I assumed they were extra, but your posts kind of suggested otherwise.

We will send out the AHR invites at the end of January. We were worried about sending out the invites to the AHR too far in advance so decided to send out 2 invites, one being more of a STD/invite. I'm sure I made that explanation much more complicated than it needed to be!! Haha. Here's the ones that have already gone out.

            There are a lot of excursions included with your stay at MP, check out this link Cancun Tours There are a couple you need to pay for ie swimming with dolphins, but i'm not trying to do anything like that lol. I just want to do a group snorkel thing but they all leave early in the morning and I can't decide which morning to choose. If I do the activity on a Wed or Thurs morning, it might just be FI and I as most of our guests will be arriving on those two days (and we'll miss greeting them with their OOTs). If we do it a day after the wedding on Sat then a lot of guests may already be leaving or too hungover lol...

                  OH, rates have dropped, has anyone else noticed? I told my TA and she's gonna adjust the rates for my guests :)
                  Once I sent the first email to the WC at moon palace I tried to put every question I had...I told her I know she prob gets tons of emails and that I would try and not bother her with 2 many. She awns. back quickly and told me sometimes it takes her a couple of days to reply but she would do her best.


                  I will def. check about the rates! Good to know! Thank you :)
                  Not even rain could ruin my wedding day!

                    EEk, some of those couples massages are pricey! FI and I love massages but not that much lol... we'll have to look more into that.
