I'm having the same issue.  My fiance and I are not religious and would really like to change the script if possible.  Would you mind sharing yours?  I'm not exactly what it should say. Like what parts are necessary and what can be left out?  I wish they had a more secular version.

I just wanted to check on this, and get a confirmation?  Looking at the list of Wedding Optional Services 2011 there is a section for Private Functions:

 

Private Wedding Function

$400 per table of 10 guests

Event includes function space, menu, 2 hours of open bar service.

Additional hour of staff service is $60 per table.

 

Any ideas?  Is this optional services just a guideline or is there an extra charge per table for each hour over 2 hours?

You can definitely have time in between for pictures, generally your coordinator will recommend it. To book your private functions you can do it 3-4 months in advance.

I think with the symbolic one you can change as much as you want and have it be more religious.  I think they keep the religious stuff out of the legal one.  I remember reading on another thread with a girl that had a Catholic ceremony that they had to do the legal one first.  I was hoping to do a least a scripture reading.  Maybe I will just have someone randomly stand up and say one real fast during the ceremony :)

I want to come up with something too...just to make it more of our own.  I don't know if we will end up doing it but it would be nice!

We wanted to add a sand ceremony and will just have one of our guests read it.

Anyone have thoughts regarding the heat during late March?  Our ceremony is on March 24th.. and I am trying to decide where to have our cocktail hour.  I want to have it outside on the terrace, with umbrellas on the tables to shade.  I see that the avg temps at this time of year are ~85 degrees though.. and our cocktail hour would be at noon.

I'm a little worried about my in-laws and the fact that my husband is very anti hot-heat.

 

Our WC suggested maybe having the cocktail party in a ballroom that has AC. 

I don't want to decorate a ballroom and was really counting on an outdoor party.  However..  I don't want it to be ruined b/c everyone is too hot to enjoy the mariachi and the food, etc.

 

Thoughts?  Anyone who has been there at that time of year and know what to expect?  Anyone seen a review from that time of year.. i'm still looking..

 

TIA!

Does anyone have an email for the wedding planner VALERIA VERA ?  Anyone had her as a WC at the Moon Palace?

Valeria's email is vvera@palaceresorts.com I just got married this past Sunday and she was my coordinator. She was pretty awesome! She took care of everything we wanted with no problem at all. Loved her!!
