Nabreu7,

 

Thanks so very much.  This gives me comfort in my beginning stages of planning.

So it's really easy and you already have a credit for things you actually need or want. :o)

 

Cheers,

Nicole

If we switch to the complimentary package it would save us about $1,000!

 

does anyone know?

Hey=). My wedding date is June 25th @ MP. I just came across this forum. I booked the date about a month ago and just signed the group rate contract. We have the same rates. How many guests do you have going?

Hi ladies!  I just found this site and thread.. and am feeling like I have a LOT to do!! :)

My DH and I are renewing our vows (and including our 2 adopted small children - wanting more of a 'family' ceremony) on March 24th.  We won't have many guests, so I don't have to plan any type of reception.. but I obviously have forgotten that there are still many things to plan out!  Yikes.

 

I'm trying to hire an outside photographer (in case anyone else is having their ceremony on that date and might be interested in sharing..).   I think, after reading many posts, that I am going to hire the harpist.. and we've already selected the Sapphire Pkg.  I don't really want to pay for anything else.  Frankly I don't want to pay for a photographer.. but I AM a photographer, and I have pretty high standards for that piece. 

 

Thx to everyone for all the info-sharing - it is so helpful!!  Just wanted to say hello. :)

Hi there!

DH and I are renewing our vows (our 10-yr anniversary) on March 24th (also including our adopted small children and making it a bit more of a 'family' ceremony) at MP.

First - I am looking into hiring an outside photographer and wanted to put that info out there in case anyone else reading would be interested in sharing..

I am a professional photographer, so I'm just not feeling comfortable with the photos I've seen so far from Smile.

 

Second - as this is a renewal, we are having a very intimate ceremony.. only maybe 8 guests will be attending.  I'm wondering what kind of options there are for our post-ceremony celebration. Our ceremony is at 11 am.. so I'm assuming we will have cocktails and then lunch.   Just trying to think through what I can do to make it as special as possible for those who are traveling so far (and paying so much!).  We also have our 2 children to consider - ages 3 and 5. 

I'm just wondering what others have done in this type of situation.. try to gain some ideas. 

 

Any thoughts?  Thanks!

Hey Ladies! I just found this forum. My wedding date is June 25th 2011. I am starting to get nervous about all this planning stuff. Wedding contract and group contract are done. Is anyone just having a cocktail party after the ceremony rather than a reception?

We are having a small guest list as well. Our ceremony is at 4. I am thinking a cocktail party after. I think it would be weird to have a full blown reception with only 20 guests. just my thoughts. My friend's sister did the same at moon palace and said the cocktail party was nice and there was a ton of food.

For the ladies with smaller groups, as long as your group has 15 room nights booked, you are eligible for the free cocktail hour. That would probably be a good event for little ones, since it's not a formal sit down. For dinner, you have the group reservation at one of the restaurants.

I think you should look at the complimentary package and just add on the things you find important to you!

 

YOU CAN'T CHANGE ANYTHING IN THE SAPPHIRE PACKAGE!

 

As far as photographers you have to buy them day passes to get them on the resort. I personally have fallen in love with Del Sol and La Luna...they do journalistic style and have some beautiful slide shows on their website of Moon Palace weddings they have done!

 

I don't know how long you and your guest are staying, but if you have 36 room rights (which is 5 nights per guest) you will receive a free cocktail hour! The people at moon palace sound like they are pretty awesome, and they will do any personal touches you want.

 

Since you have younger kids....maybe you could have them throw some rose pedals after the ceremony....check out flyboynaturals.com they have some frozen pedals for cheap.

Also, have you heard about sand ceremonies? You get different color sand, and pour it into a glass vase, or jar or they have picture frame (there lots of stuff out there) could be something cool for you and your kids to do together and have as a keepsake.

 

Just some ideas!
