Hey ladies, I am very close to finalizing my booking rooms.  I am working with destinationweddings.com for my TA.  At first I was excited but somewhere in the middle I got nervous and was wondering if I made the right choice.  In the initial stages I got a group contract signed with DW that was approved by MP.  The prices that I have are better then what i've seen on expedia, priceline and even the MP website.  And I was also able to get the transfers to and from the airport included in my prices.  I have been keeping track of all my guests and who has booked to ensure that I have my 75 nights or 25 rooms.  According to my calcualations I have 82 nights but from all the posts, I am going to TRIPLE check that so I'm not short 5 or so day.  I am planning on the unlimited events so to have to pay $400/table would totally suck since I have 53 folks booked. 

 

I am also going to ask my TA to request the sunrise side and to make sure that that section has a lot of double beds.  Most of my guests are aren't couples so I wouldn't want 2 guys to be stuck sleeping on a double/queen bed!

 

Well i'll let you all know how my final booking turns out.

Another bride sent them to me b/c I had the 2010 prices but luckily they honored the 2010 prices for me. If you PM your email address,  I can send you the whole spa list. I don't know if I can attach on here since I can't even view attachments yet!

Teresa, let my guest make payments in between if they wanted to break out the payments. I am not sure how she came up with the schedule but my wedding is May 29th, the 1st payment was due when you book and I had my booking available back in October. The 2nd payment wasn't due till Feb and the third was due in April.

Isn't it true that if you book $75+ nights you get the private party for FREE???

I believe Sunrise has the most double beds and that's what my TA told me b/c I am like you, with alot of single dudes . .

 

Keep pressing them b/c I hear that they've been sticking ppl in Nizuic even though they were promised Sunrise. I believe I am confirmed for Sunrise b/c I just got our airport transfer via email and it said Moon Palace Sunrise . . I hope b/c I told everyone that's where we're staying!

You get UNLIMITED number of private parties for free....

so i have a bridesmaid brunch, farewell brunch, the reception, etc... the rehearsal dinner could have been one of these free events too but i wanted the Arrecifes (brazilian steak house menu) and they can only have that menu at that restaurant.

you can have a free event every night with 75+ room nights

I had to back the next day and tip Alberto for doing my hair and makeup. We didn't tip the videographer because he took off right after the wedding ceremony. Make sure to carry a few bills for tipping golf cart drivers. My family took one to the ceremony, my sister had one rush her back to the reception, we had one take us from the gazebo to the lobby for pictures and we had to have one rush us across the resort to make it to the ceremony as well. I felt bad because none of us had any money at one point and I gave the guy a rose from my bouquet. And when we got to the reception I had to track down my dad for tip money!

 

I would also make a list of the little details you want to include. I forgot the boutonnieres for my dad and ring bearer, the passed starfish for my bouquet, and my garters.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
