**** Does anyone know if I can have some decorations shipped right to Moon Palace?

I wanted to order those UFO Lanterns but I am nervous that I won't be able to fly with them.

It would be very easy if I could get them shipped there.

 

Also,

 

Does anyone know a good place to get the maracas ?

I see that oriental trading has some that I can paint.  I liked this because they'll be our colors BUT they look way too small.  They are only 5 inches.

 

Ahhhh....we leave in 4 weeks and I have SOOOO much to do!

Rae-

 

I have wondered that too! I'm more interested in if they will LET us have wish lanterns there....either way I think I read somewhere that they DO NOT accept shipments because of the liability. I don't think it would be any more difficult to fly with them than anything else you would be bringing.

NO you can not have items shipped to MP!  I've tried, my TA tried and its a solid NO.

There is a lady on Etsy.com that does maracas (I forget her name) but, you could do a search on etsy.  There is also another website that I ordered samples from but since we decided not to do it, I deleted the information).  There is a maraca forum and I remember posting it there.

I don't know if anyone else is feeling this way but I am starting to stress out.  It is so difficult not having been to Moon Palace before.

I am not sure what to expect.  

I don't know if I have enough decor and or money! Lily my WC doesn't seem to give me straight answers.  We have 23 guests.  I decided to upgrade to the reception instead of the cocktail hour.  I still don't know how much it's going to cost me.

I'm really stressing at this point ladies!!!

Less than a month to go!!!

Don't stress! I am sure everything will go perfectly. Just go through the forms again and make a spreadsheet with all the extras that go with upgrading to the reception. Just pack up all your decorations, and make sure you write down everything for Lily. I did the same thing for Kalena and sent it to her so she knew how I wanted everything and I already knew how much things were going to cost me. :o)

 I agree with nabreu7, Everything will work out!! I've never been to MP either. what has helped ease my worries is the reviews and comments from all of the past brides and/or the current brides who have done site visits. Definitely add up your items and see where you are as far as cost. If it looks like you would need to cut down, think about what are the most important things that you would want. If you don't think you have enough decor, don't worry about it, work with what you have. Besides, decor or no decor, it'll be beautiful regardless. The resort is gorgeous and that itself will do it some justice.

It must be super stressful when you get down to less than a month! I am sure you will work it all out and everything will be lovely.

 

So, just a little vent. I get married in about 3 1/2 months. I asked two friends to be bridesmaids and recently just got a text....a TEXT, from one of them saying that she isnt coming!!! She has lied to me for the past 6 months saying that she booked and got her airfare. meanwhile, I bought her dress for her, bought many gifts to put in her welcome bag and lended her money. where that money is, WHO KNOWS! when I asked her why she lied to me she told me to "Fu*k off" and hung up on me. SUPER Classy.

 

At this point it is too late to ask anyone else to stand in so I am left with just one girl, a dress that I cant return and gifts that I guess i will have to keep. I am hoping that is the only drama I will have LOL.

 

Life goes on! smile159.gif

I am so sorry! That is awful. She should have been honest from the beginning. Maybe sell everything on Ebay to try and get some of your money back. :o(  My fiance had the same thing happen with one of his groomsman too. We didn't care if he couldn't make it, we were just hurt bc he told my fiance 6 months before the wedding also that he couldn't afford it and his wife's dad asked him to not take his daughter to Mexico. I don't understand why he still couldn't come, so they just took a trip to San Diego but he can't afford to attend our wedding which he knew about for a year. :o(  Oh well, people should just be honest from the start and just say the truth..That they can't come or plainly don't want to. The truth is always better.

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
