Hi, I am a BDW newbie!! 5 years ago my hubby and I eloped with just 1 of our good friends. Now I want to do it all over again but BIGGER. I have been back and forth with where I wanted to have my wedding but after learning that delsol photography isn't allowed at Azul resorts I went with MP. Photos and flowers are really BIG to me!!!! So is food, but I can't please everyone anyway. I have seen some beautiful weddings at MP and i even have a friend who was married there last year. I put in a request for November 2011. Is anyone else getting married in November 2011?? I heard that ordering flowers in Mexico is expensive however I am willing to pay for QUALITY and what I want. Through this thread I think I just about know everything I want and I haven't even been confirmed for my date yet. That's me though always planning everything out. Anywho, does anyone know about flowers and their options? I love peonies, they only grow april-june in the states, could I get them there in November? Or should I just bring fake ones to add to my bouquet? I could go on and on so I better stop.....Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Hi!

I'm also getting married at MP in November 2011. We just started planning so I don't have answers to your questions, but I'm sure you can find them on this forum. Check Moon Palace brides 2010 thread, it is very helpful, I got so many of my questions answered just by going through that thread. Happy planning!

Hi Everyone,

 

Does anyone know how dinner works?  Will we be able to do speeches at dinner?  What about if we wanted a mini reception?  Is that possible somewhere?  I wanted to do the dances and speeches and I just don't know if dinner would be appropriate or if anyone could be heard.

 

Any info you have would be great!

 

Thanks,

Angela

Great question BeautifulBrideAngela!  I'd like to know that as well. 

 

Also, has anyone heard anything about the kids under 12 promotion not applying next year?  When I spoke to a Wedding Coordinator about a month ago, she said that kids 12 and under were free in July when staying with a parent who's staying for at least 3 nights.  However, when I asked the wedding coordinator that I was just assigned to, she said that the Vacation Dollars promotion replaced the kids for free one.

I really haven't made any more decisions...I had the WC send me song lists for the live band options that are a part of the resort's vendors.... I also am deciding between the immaculate conception and amber packages-

I blocked 40 rooms actually.,..like 25 doubles and 15 singles...on specific parts of the resort.

I was sent a document with all the pictures of the reception venues at MP- email me at cynguzman@gmail.com and i'll send it to you! i can't seem to attach things to this thread

Angela,

 

They do have private rooms available for rental. If you book 75 room nights with a group you get unlimited private events. That's basically 11 couples for a week. Otherwise, it is $40 per person for each table of 10. You'll also have to rent a sound system if you want to use a mic. I think it's very dependent on how many people you have attending.

Hi Ladies,

 

I also am getting married in 2011. May 12th 2011 to be exact and we are having the ruby package. I have been to the Moon Palace 4 times now so it was the obvious place. If anyone has any questions about the resort just let me know.

Hi, Catherine.  We are booked for May 13th.  Have you started making any plans.  Are you in touch with the WC yet?

Hi everyone, we are getting married on May 13th, 2011.  I'm so excited.  I was just reading the reviews people posted of their weddings and people mentioned reserving the locations of the private events.  I'm so anxious to get started on the planning.  Has anyone getting married around the same time been in contact with her WC yet?

    • 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!!
