    Congrats on your wedding. The count down has began!

    Qustion for you: are you doing a private function? do you have a private photographer or are you going with the resorts photographer? are you also going with the florist at the resort?

     

    Would love to see some pictures of your wedding! I am getting married in March!

      We as well as most of our groups booked with American too.  When we started booking, our TA's agency wouldn't allow any bookings through Mexicana since they were having financial issues.  Good thing you guys didn't book Mexicana.

        10-19 rooms or 30 room nights = 2 nights comp + 1 cocktail (function areas area assigned upon availability with the onsite wedding planner and confirmed upon arrival)

        20-24 rooms or 60 room nights = 4 comp nights + 1 private function

        25 + rooms or 75 room nights = 7 comp nights  + unlimited private function + one room upgrade  for the bride and groom to the next available room category

         



         

        Can someone please explain to me what room nights mean? If we have 26 people is hay 182 room nights? Or is it 7 nights per room? Also, what exactly is an unlimited private room? Do you just get a room and dinner is extra? I'm trying to budget but can't wrap my head around how much dinner is going to cost us.

          Hi,

           

          Can someone please clarify the room nights?  We have 26 of us in total.  Does that mean we have 182 room nights or is it calculated per room?  We have 11 rooms booked.  

           

          What exactly does the unlimited private functions get you?  Just the space?  We are trying to budget how much dinner is going to cost us.

           

          Thank you!

            Hi everyone,

             

            Can someone please tell me more about the fireworks?  Do they wait until it is dark to do it?  If they do, are we sharing the fireworks with all the brides of that day?

              Ok...if this post shows up 3 times I am very sorry.  But it isn't showing up on my end!

               

              I have a question about the room nights - we have 26 of us in total coming and 11 rooms booked.  How many room nights is that?  

               

              What does unlimited private functions get you?  Is it just a reservation of space?  

               

              We are trying to budget for the cost of dinner and don't know what we are able to get with a private function.  Is alcohol extra when you have a private function?  We are at an all inclusive resort so I would think that the drinks would be free but I could be wrong.

               

              Thanks,

              Angela

                Sheesh....I'm full of all kinds of questions today.

                 

                What does anyone know about the birth certificates?  I was reading in the requirements that they keep them?  Is that correct?

                    Angela,

                     

                    The room nights depend on how long you are all staying.  If all 11 rooms are booked for 7 nights, that would equall 77 room nights and you would qualify for unlimited private events.  Each private event includes open bar, a choice of menu and standard decor (tables, chairs, tableware and white linens).  Hope this helps.

                      I think they do the fireworks right at the end of the ceremony. Behind the table. There is a picture of fireworks on the my palace resorts wedding website. That was the main reason we chose to go without the package. The only thing extra we would get is fireworks and they almost seem like just sparklers.

Its just going to be a renewal of vows as we are getting legally married here the day before we leave so we don't have to pay for the blood tests. Does anyone know if that would be paid for in the package?

                       

                      Thank you!


                       

                      The ceremony fee is included with all packages, even complimentary. It's just an extra fee for a civil ceremony, which you won't need. I would check if you really want everything in the package. We found it cheaper to just buy everything separately since we are bringing photographers and flowers. Remember to read through this entire thread and the Moon Palace 2010 thread too and you will see why most of us chose the complimentary package with separate upgrades.
