      At the moment I'm thinking that maybe I should have the free package and add on, with it being so expensive to go to MP from the UK nearlly £5,000gbp ($8332.50) per couple not that many people can afford to go, I have 13 booked at the moment, so is it really worth me spending $2000 on a wedding package? Also is there any point me having a private function with so few people? I really don't know what to do, I am having a reception when i get back.
      Don't know what to do, any advice would be much appreciated.

        i have gone with the free package, because as much as i fancied the diamond, there were things i didn't want (the horse and cart, fireworks etc) and things i wanted adding, and you don't get any give and take. if you dont want the bridal bouquet, you can't 'swap' it. you lose it if you buy another, you know? so the free one, with add-on's is better value, for me anyway.

        as for the private event, im not sure either. at the moment im weighing it up. the only reason i really want one is because i figure every night of the holiday we'll be eating in the restaurants, so if we do on the night of the wedding, how will it be different to any other night, you know? but then i begrudge paying $400 per table, plus $60 per hour (after two hours) in an all inclusive resort. so im really not sure!

          We went with the free package as well. I agree with the girls who say it is a better deal to just add on what you want. As for the private function....last time I checked, if you did a rooming contract for 10 rooms you got a private function for free. Now that may have changed since the last time I read through the material....seems that the promotions change all the time at these resorts. Right now they are doing deals on airfare to get you to MP. So you would have to check!

          Good luck!

            Helllo!!

            The collection we picked i believe is the diamond. But I think I might switch only bc I do not want everything in that package and if I change and swap things I believe we have to pay for it. These are decisions I will have to make as it approaches.

              PS- The prices I have been quoted were ok for MP, but checking out Orbitz etcv. the prices were significantly cheaper..Now we are trying to get MP to either match the price or allow my guests that are booking w these outside companies to coutn towards my package.

                I called and they had lowered the rates down to the orbitz prices, but they were for other rooms that didn't have great views! I was like I don't care about the view-- we don't spend time on the balcony anyways!

                  Hello ladies!! I'm a 2011 bride and I've decided on Moon Palace although it's not set in stone as of yet. I'm glad to hear that MP will match the price of other vendors if you find a better deal. I've checked prices with MP and they are very high. However, as some of you have mentioned, Orbitz is MUCH cheaper! It's still way too early for me to worry about these things but I need as much info as possible, so as the date nears, I'll know what to do to get the bang for my buck. Thanks ladies!!

                    Hello ladies,

                    I just got married at Aventura Spa last week...you can pick a package and change up on the flowers..also they show you one set of flowers on the website...but when you actually choose your package they give you a new set of papers with more choices... and I choose the diamond collection then changed it to the amethyst... I also at first chose the free package but while I was there kicked it up a notch.. but couldnt decide...I was also going the restaurant route..then POOF ended up having a private reception... I was a confused mess!! I also used there photograher...and here is one thing I totally recommend... if you do use there photographer... ask your WC to let you preview the pics by email...so that YOU can choose your pics..otherwise
                    they choose your pictures for you...which kinda pissed me off..and I let them know it... also...with the packages you get the photograph Package A i think..you can pay the differences between photo packages so that you can have the bigger picture selection...I also... paid the photographer by the hour and ended up keeping him for 2 hours... I got 3 discs with about 300 pictures..if you have any questions... you can email me if you like

                    take care...

                    Kim

                      Tinkatude,
                      I'm getting married at Sun palace. I was really curious about the photographs. Do you like the final product? Were you able to see the photographers work before you arrived? I was thinking about getting the Basic package because I wanted to make sure I got a lot of pictures on CD. I really don't want them to print out pictures for me because I plan on doing my own book and maybe framing one or two pictures. So did you get the photograph package A and than paid for another hour?
