      Thank you for this info!  It seems like this felt like a mini reception - I was worried I'd have to miss out on the special events at a reception like first dance & cake cutting if we did the dinner.  Thanks for sharing!!!  Glad it worked out so well for you!

They set us up in front in the elevated part of the restaurant and all the other resort guests were down below, so it felt private to us. We had a separate bride-groom table and a cake table. The best part was a piano player palying music all through the reception, and he also played special songs for our first dance and our dances with parents. There was a large area that was good for dancing near the piano. It felt so special and we do not regret skipping out on a private function. Of course we were there during low season so it might have been different if the restaurant was full of people. The food was just okay but we found that didn't bother us at all.

          It did feel like a scaled-down wedding reception. It had all the necessary elements and it was perfect for our small group of people. Our guests were mostly parents/grandparents, with some younger friends/siblings, but overall we're a laid-back bunch. If we had more guests who were a little more rowdy I can totally see wanting to do a private event with a DJ. Good luck with your wedding planning! I will say though that the waiters didn't seem to understand why I would want to take the wedding cake back with me and freeze it. They didn't even have a container to put it in. Oh well, we were willing to skip that tradition. Like our married friend said at the time, "it never tastes as good as you think it will".

                    Hi Girls! We are back from the Moon Palace, we had a great trip and didn' want to come home! We had the Catholic Wedding in the Immaculate Conception Chapel, I would not have changed a thing, it was the most beautiful wedding I have ever seen!  Here is the link to our video it was done by the resort, however their version was 1 hour long.  I had my video guy here in NJ re edit to 4 min for my reception on Saturday.
