Group Contracts at MP--- anyone have extensive expereince with this?? We're not sure how many rooms to book or for how many nights. The hotel wants the # of rooms and the specific dates of travel, but we don't know when our guests are going to want to travel. We're offering a 3, 4, and 7 night package, but some guests are of course going to deviate from that plan... any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hey everyone,

I'm getting married in January 15, 2011. I'm so excited 10 more months to go. I have my rooms blocked, dates set, and photographer booked (they are staying as our guests). I'm not using a travel agent, just the resort.

gemmalou- I was really hesitant to have the resort photographers because they didn't get any good reviews, a lot of brides were really sad because their photos came out so bad! sad.gif I would recommend that you find your own photographer. I'm using KTBweddings.com

I'm looking for flights to Cancun, but can't find any direct flights. I heard it was best direct if you can, or not to have stops in Mexico just in case anything happens.

I'm working on all the details to the wedding now so I don't have to stress about this right before the wedding or during the holidays. Hopefully, the time and stress I put in right now will save me right before the wedding.

One of the things I'm looking at right now are the decorations and table decor for the reception. I want lots of real flowers for my wedding but they are so expensive! And with the no outside vendor policy its really difficult to figure out what I should do. Any suggestions?

MsJesslee, I am using RealTouch flowers by Angels Accents. To save on decorating costs, I am going to "recycle" my bridesmaids bouquets by putting them in vases as part of the reception table decor. By the time the reception gets going, we'll be done with formal pics; and with every wedding I've been to or be in, those bouquets usually just end up lying around on tables, chairs, floors, etc. anyway. Angels Accents website: ANGEL'S ACCENTS. Based on the many reviews I've read, you can't tell the difference between real flowers and RealTouch. She does excellent work and will send you photos of your arrangements/bouquets BEFORE she ships them so you can make any changes if need be. (I'm sure MP doesn't offer this service.)

 

I agree with you, the prices for the flowers are riduculous and the last time I checked, they only made boutennieres for the groom. Two of many reasons why I'm shying away from real flowers. Additionally, I read that a Mexico bride had regrets about her real flowers because they faded on her dress!! Can you imagine how aweful that washuh.gif

Hi Girls! How exciting that theres a thread for 2011 brides at Moon Palace! I am getting married at Moon Palace Feb 2011. We are planning on booking in the next couple of weeks. We are thinking 2nd week in Feb. We've got quotes from a couple of travel agents and so far it seems like it might be better to book directly with the hotel and figure out flights in the fall when seat sales are happening. Might be a little more stressful that way but trying to find the best prices for my guests. We plan on doing the free wedding package and adding on extras. So far the Moon Palace has been great with returning my emails and answering all of my questions. Nice thing with booking directly with the hotel is that guests have until the fall to pay thier deposit which is equal to 2 nights stay and the final balance due at check out. More time to save up. iTravel2000 wants final payment over 4 months in advance. The travel agent also made me think that there were going to be a lot of problems for us if we booked everything seperately, like transfers to hotel, quoted prices not being honored, etc. So far I have not heard or read anything of the sort. I was told though to make sure to book tranfers online well before departure. I believe it was $10 round trip. Cant complain about that!

Happy planning everyone!

Ladies, has anyone heard much about the new Grand side of the resort? Is it true that it is only for Palace Premium (timeshare) members? I'm curious as to whether or not this new side offers any more venue options for ceremony, receptions,...

Tiffani, I saw your review. You looked stunning! Thanks so much for the detailed review, especially about the hair. I was concerned about their abilities with African American hair. I'm tempted to work extra shifts just to be able to bring my hairstylist. :)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
