So you have had a good experience with Ivan Keshia??? He's in my top two :)

Jennw818:  Did you decide on Ivan Luckie? He is wonderful to work with! :)

We are using Danielle Davis. She is AMAZING! And prices are very affordable. One thing that we are offering to our guests are "mini session" this includes a 1 hour session with our photographer the day after the wedding for families/couples to get their pictures done on the beach. She will edit the photos and send everyone the rights and a CD with the images for only 100.00. This has been a HUGE hit because everyone wants family pictures while they are down there and this is extremely affordable.

thanks for the support Kyndall...yes it's an incredibly low price when you figure that just a little 100 bucks per person per night you get unlimited everything in 4 different hotels in a beautiful paradise... i think people just don't know what they are in for and are so hesitant to pay that much.... i've been to Moon once, my sister is a member and has been at least 4 times... the year of my wedding she'll be celebrating her bday in March and going back in July... I mean it's just THAT worth it.

I had a few friends panic about the violence.  I tried to reassure that the majority of those problems exist along the border towns.  Most of my guests are from the general Philadelphia area.  When these comments started to annoy me, I gently reminded them how unsafe certain parts of our own city are and that they are under no obligation to come. If they don't feel safe, don't go.  That easy! 

 

My TA recommended booking the night stay for the photographer as well.  She said day passes are only good for a certain amount of hours.

So has anyone already gotten any frantic emails and phone calls about how dangerous Mexico is? I am already annoyed. Seriously, its dangerous everywhere! I guess since that lead investigator in the murder case got beheaded, my guests are starting to panic. My wedding is not till next May, I think it will be ok:-) Alright done venting!

 

 

So ladies using outside photogs? How are you telling the resort? I think I am going to book a night's stay for my photog and just forget the day pass b/c it might be easier for him to get on the resort. What do you girls think?

I'm having a similar issue Jenn, because my family and friends are also from Philly.  But I remind them that the resort is not in the greater metro area of Cancun...that's pretty much on lock down and you can't get in unless you're on the door list...and that the transportation to and from the airport is like 10 minutes and well organized and efficient... once they are on the resort property, there are very very few reasons to even leave and go out to Cancun...honestly you don't have to leave at alll...but if people want to do the zip line or wetn'wild...it's seriously like 5 mins down the road.

I know I have.  It's mostly from the in law side of the family that aren't going anyway so I'm not sure why they don't keep it to themselves.  I just remind people that we aren't getting married in juarez and you are in danger everywhere.

You really should visit the Del Sol Wiki..Have your family visit it even and take a look at all the slide shows from Del Sol. They have at least 5 slides of the moon palace that show the resort from every angle. It's not like some resorts were you see armed tanks on the beach or men with guns. Its COMPLETELY safe and beautiful. A lot of people feel better about something after they see it.

 

Its located http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wiki/del-sol-photography-slideshows-riviera-maya#user_cn Their =)

 

 

Well,.....

 

Unless your married to the that one producer from Survivor...But I don't think that's the Moon Palaces fault..../Sorry bad joke!

skadow,

 

My mom mentioned that to my FMIL and she nearly backed out. She's afraid to go anywhere! But once you look at the number of visitors Moon Palace has, versus the number of incidents you will see that we are probably safer at Moon Palace than most of our home towns.

 

It's a safe, beautiful place unless you go looking for trouble.

    • 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!!
