Moon Palace 2010 Brides!!
Posted 21 March 2010 - 09:48 AM
I actually came across here because I asked my wedding coordinator what gazebo I was in. I will be in the Tucan Gazebo and when I searched it, I found this site!!!!
Most of our upgrades are just in the flowers. I also can't decide on if I want to do the Horse-drawn carriage or not! I am excited I did purchase my chair bows yesterday as well as palm leaf hand fans. With our wedding being in May, I thought everyone might enjoy the fans!
Our on-site weddding planner Cristina has been wonderful. She gets back to me within a few hours. I haven't had a problem with her yet.
Here is a question to all past (and future brides). Has anyone used or is using a sand unity set during their ceremony? I would like to do something, and Cristina said the sand works better than candles because it does tend to be windy. I was just wondering if they traveled ok with it. Did you have to redo it once you got back home?

I think I have decided to not upgrade my flowers and spring for the horse drawn carriage!
I'm getting married on May 21st, 2010...anyone else getting married that day or weekend? We will be there from 5/17 - 5/24.
Still wondering about how everyone did the sandy unity ceremony.

I will be doing the sand ceremony also. It does work better in wind and also photographs well.
If you do a search you should be able to find diffrent sand ceremony wording.

I am also planning on doing the sand ceremony. Have you priced around?
I am thinking about using a frame. If you need DIY instructions on how to do it yourself PM me because I copied how to create one in a word document.

I found the satin chair sashes for .85 cents each at ..tableclothsfactory.com. Someone had posted them as a recommendation and they are the best price I have found. They said it wouldn't be a problem to put them on before the wedding started. We are only have 18 people there with us, so it won't be to hard to do right before.
I think I have decided to stay with the free pakage and keep the free flowers. I can't bring the flowers home with me, so I might as well not pay extra for them! LIke someone else said before, add up your extras and see if it is worth upgrading.
I have priced around on the sand unity sets...didn't realize how expensive they would be. I found one I really like at ...groomsshop.com. It's a destination one, personalized for $42.49 (w/o S&H). If I don't do that, I might try and find something at hobby lobby and just do on myself.

We are also doing free package, with horse drawn carriage, purchased fans (Michaels) and flowers for real touch bouquets (I'm trying to do them on my own and will let you all know how it goes after my attempt)! We are purchasing our chair sashes at (Chair Sashes- Pew Bows Ribbon - Chair Ribbons 27 colors). I've actually found LOTS of things to purchase from this website....kind of going crazy!!! LOL
I just got home from Walmart where I found our OOT bags (turquoise and white trpoical print mesh beach bag). They were on clearance for $2.00 each.....so we bought all 10 of the blue ones and a couple extra in yellow just in case! What a deal! Also, bought coil keychains from (OTC) and zippered badges (ebay) for a total of like $15 for the tip/room key carry thing.
Phew....there is so much more, but I can't remember right now! LOLOL
Talk to you all later!
BTW - The snow came here first...we got 6-10 inches at my house...but it was so wet and warm that it has pretty much all melted by now! Now they are calling for ANOTHER storm on Tuesday and WEdnesday....MORE SNOW...GO AWAY...DON'T COME BACK ANOTHER DAY!

Also look up COUPON CODES at Coupon codes and discounts for 50,000 online stores! RetailMeNot.com for the online stores you shop at....a lot of the times you can find coupon sodes for free shipping or percents off for the store you are buying things at. I got a 20% off for Oriental Trading Company (OTC) for the coil wrist bands just yesterday. It all adds up!!!

Another bride mentioned sealing the sand with candle wax helps to keep it in place.
