    I did not buy a table cloth.  Just used the white ones they provided.  Here are two shots of my tables set up.

     

     



    Do any of the past brides have a picture of what the round tables look like when they are set up for the reception? also, what size round table cloth do i buy?

     

    i am going crazy over here!!!

     

    thanks!!!

     

     

    - Jess

      I was able to put mine in the VERY small closet with 2 other dresses, some 3 strollers and the flight crews clothing and suitcases..so essentially I would have been the same had it been in the overhead compartment.  I was getting it steamed anyway.

      Carry-on Requirements

      Each customer may bring one bag that fits in the overhead bin plus one personal item (purse, briefcase, laptop, etc.) that fits under the seat in front of you.

      Your personal item must not exceed 17"l (43.2 cm) x 12.5"w (31.8 cm) x 8"h 20.3 cm) in order to fit under the seat in front of you.

      To fit in the overhead bin, your item must not exceed:

      • for our EMBRAER 190: 24 inches (60.96 centimeters) length x 16 inches (40.64 centimeters) width x 10 inches (25.4 centimeters) height

      If you have a medical assistance item, it will not count as a carry-on.

      Closets for hanging garment bags are not available on our aircraft.

      Carry-on baggage is the sole responsibility of the customer and JetBlue will assume no liability for property carried onboard the aircraft.

        A little upset with my onsite WC. She is great but today she told me that none of my choices for reception are available! And my first choice for the ceremony and cocktail hour were not available as well. The wedding is more than 100 days away and it's during low season, how is it possible. Grrr... Sorry :)

        Did anyone have similar situation? Should I push for the locations I want or will it be pointless?

         

        The only options available are Lake terrace and Selva Terrace. Does anyone have pictures of those places? I did search and found few pics of Lake terrace but none of Selva.

          Rae, there are many 2011 AND 2012 brides sending positive thoughts and prayers your way. I am so sorry that Moon Palace is causing you such grief. I just don't understand. If one was having a "traditional" wedding at home, most of the time the florist will re-use some of the flower decor from the church and re-transport them by vehicle to the reception site to be incorporated with the decor there. Although an "at-home" florist wouldn't normally charge a "re-set up fee", I might be able to tolerate having to pay the fee that MP is imposing. To be told, however, that you can't use the flowers at all is completely ludicrous. First of all, you are using their recommended vendor and secondly as I see it, you "own" those flowers to do what you wish with. Fight hard! There are MANY of us behind you! Best of luck and please keep us posted on the outcome.

            Here's yesterday's drama girls,

             

            Last week we did the quick switch to the catholic ceremony. ( I know that it's probably our fault for the timing of our last minute switch )

             

            I e-mailed both Janina and Lily about the switch.  They said it shouldn't be a problem, that the time was still available.  

             

            In the meantime I have gone to my local parish and set up private pre cana sessions to get all of our paperwork and pre marital work done before we get married.  They have been great and working extremely hard to help us meet all of our requirements.  

             

            On Sunday night I got an e-mail back from Fr. Benito answering some of my questions.

             

            YESTERDAY I e-mailed Janina again because I never got the contract for the switch.  She told me that the time might not be available because they haven't heard from Fr. Benito.

            Something is strange!  I called Moon Palace four times, everytime they went to look into it I was disconnected.

             

            I made all of my programs last week saying that it was going to take place at the Immaculate Conception Chapel.  I AM PRAYING THAT THEY WILL GET BACK TO ME ASAP AND ALL WILL BE GOOD. 

             

            THe problem with planning a destination wedding is the waiting for everyone via e-mail!!!


            Getting Married at Moon Palace 8-23-11!!!

              I would try again, ask to speak to your WC's boss.  It is the low season so it seems unlikely, unless there is some type of convention going on.  I know last November there was a huge summit at MP but I don't believe it was scheduled to be back. I also know MP is used for basketball tournaments for teams, if its close to Thanksgiving, there is always early season tournaments played down there, UK has stayed there the past 2 years.

              Does anyone know if Moon palace has some sort of "calender of events" regarding when they have conventions and other types of things happening?  I don't want to choose a weekend when there is a big convention.

                I think they only post the events at Moon Palace and it always changes.

                  Hello Ladies, I've been lurker here for a few months. Now with my wedding quckly approaching I've decided to come from underneath my shell :). Thanks for all the info I've learned so much! My wedding is being held October 16th @ 4pm. I'm getting the Amethyst Rose package. I'm soooo excited but after reading ALL the reviews I feel behind in a lot of areas. My WC is Rosy Lilly and she has been great so far! However the info she sent me didn't mention anything about the different location options for the ceremony, reception and private functions. I've gotten all my knowledge from you ladies. Also cake options :/. Can anyone summarize the different Terraces and Gazebos. Actually just the Tuscan vs. Grand vs. Carribean. I've sen pics of the Tuscan but not the other two. Stashes for chairs & table lays/runners ~ I was reading one of the BWD reviews from a MP bride and she had bright organza table lays and chair stashes and runners ...does anyone know if u can purchase them from MP or do we bring them ourselves? Thank you so much again!!! Hopefully these aren't repeat questions :/

                    Thank you for advise. Unfortunately, even after emailing director I still don't have a location I wanted. All of my 3 choices are booked already. To top it all off, the location that is still available, Lake Terrace, is a little far from Bugambilia Gazebo, where our ceremony will be, and to get golf carts to drive our elderly guests who have difficulty walking will cost us $225 per golf cart!!!!!!!!!

                    I am furious beyond words!
