Hello Everyone,

 

I am planning to get married at Moon Palace in early 2011. We haven't officially picked a date yet, but am very excited to get things started. Does anyone knw the better route to take as far as booking. Would it be better to book through a travel agent, through the hotel or on our own. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them. Thanks and good luck to all 2011 brides.

I'm not a Moon Palace bride, but since there aren't many (or any) Sun Palace brides I've been using the Moon Palace threads for help with my wedding. Many brides swear by their TA's, so that might be the way to go. I plan on just utilizing the help the resort will provide. The better TA's take a lot of stress away.

Hi Ladies. I'm also a 2011 bride. We're confirmed for February 19,2011. I haven't done a whole lot but reserve a date so far. I did email a TA and waiting to hear back on rates, so not sure if I'll go through them or directly through MP yet.

 

So far we plan to do the complimentary package and adding on as we see fit. It may change as we go along though. Glad to see other 2011 Moon Palace brides on here!

Hey ladies! I'm a 2011 bride - hopefully at MP :) I fell in love with the resort online and the wedding packages seem so affordable for what's offered. FH isn't quite convinced yet because he thinks I'm jumping at the first resort I found, but I've been researching pre-engagement :)

 

Southern Sweetie - did you book flights & rooms yet for your wedding? I didn't want to book our wedding yet because we can't find any flight info for next year. Plus, I'm really nervous about room costs for our guests. We plan on inviting about 60 people down there with just immediate family and close friends.

 

I just also want to make sure that they will still be offering the group benefits for a big group - I saw right now that the bride and groom will get a free 7 night stay and unlimited private functions with booking 25 rooms.

 

Looking forward to talking with you all :)

My TA says that the room rates won't be available until about a year in advance. For my group, that's this summer. My TA, however, is allowing our guest to send in deposits of $150 each plus anything else that they wish to contribute towards their trips since most of our guests will be putting their vacations in "layaway." We are expecting a large group, mainly because the guests were excited about being able to make payments at their convenience. With this economy, this option turned out to be very practical. We "guestimated" that if a person who got paid bi-weekly save $32 per paycheck, they would be able to pay for their entire trip including airfare with minimal pain in the pocketbook. :)

My FI works for Continental Airlines. He says that flight schedules are not out until 9 months in advance and flights are not booked until the schedules are released. Spring is typically when airlines start their summer price wars, so this actually works for our group.

    • Yes, this happens all the time. One thing to consider is maybe to have the wedding at an off-site location where all your guests can go. There are several in Puerto Vallarta and Cancun Mexico. Most hotels offer a free wedding, but if a majority of guests are not staying there you'll be paying for not only the day pass, but for the food and beverage for each outside guest. Thanks - Sadie  
    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
