This thread is to get all Moon Palace Brides - past, present, and future - to share the questions that you sent to your WC. The purpose is two-fold:

 

To make a comprehensive list of questions that you have asked, you need ask, you wish you would have asked...you get the idea. There are so many creative minds on this forum, I'd hate to go away thinking, "I should have asked about that," when I'm at the resort and it's obviously too late.

 

The other reason is so that those of us who are still in the planning stages can just put all of our applicable questions on one email to the WC, instead of having a lot of back-and-forth messenging. Maybe getting the questions list all up front will free up some time for them, and they can respond to us much quicker. (It seems that a lot of us have experienced some level of frustration with some WCs being slothful about responding.)

 

I am asking everyone to copy and paste their questions. I'm not sure if including the answers is a good idea, since things seem to change regularly. Additionally, many past brides have stated that when it came time to finalize the bill, the email dialogue between them and their WC saved some time and expense.

 

I am posting this link on threads for MP 2008-2011 brides. Thanks for contributing!

This is just an effort to collect as many question in one place. Brides can pick and choose the ones that are applicable to them and email their set of questions to the WC at once.

 

C'mon, MP Brides Past and Present, help us out!

I have been emailing my WC back and forth since the beginning of this year. I started with Marlyn Tobon and then Claudia Martinez became my WC and finally we ended up with Carilis Felipe who then ended up referring me to Maribel Blancarte who is the wedding assistant at Moon Palace.

Here are some things I have asked:

1. I have already decided on having a private function at the Terrace Venado. I also know that Moon Palace Resorts does not allow outside vendors inside the resort. Can you give me a breakdown on the available reception decorations and its cost?

2. I have seen some reception decorations that I really like in the website's optional services photos. In addition, I am also interested in having fire dancers at my reception. Is there a way that you can accommodate this?

3. I know that part of the Emerald package includes a restaurant reservation for 35 people. Can I have this reservation on July 17th, the day before my wedding for my rehearsal dinner?

4. According to your promotions, guests can receive free unlimited tours to Chichen Itza. I am planning some form of excursion for my guests. How can we avail of this promotion? Can guests staying outside the hotel avail of this promotion too if they pay some kind of fee?

5. I have some guests who are staying outside the hotel. We are planning to hold a rehearsal dinner. Can they purchase a day pass for the rehearsal dinner too or is that only good for the wedding? Like the wedding which only limits guests passes to 20% of total number of guests, is there a limit too to the number of guests passes I can purchase for a rehearsal dinner?

 

I probably drive my WCs crazy with the amount of questions that I had. However, all of them were very obliging and answered my questions really well.

I finally received some answers from my WC. Here are my questions/answers that I thought others might be interested in.

 

Q: How many roses are in the complimentary Bridal Bouquet and what colors are available?

A: About 20-25 roses and you decide the color of the roses. There are ivory, hot pink, light pink, yellow, orange, white, red.

 

Q: What is the cost for rose petals and how many are included per bag? What colors are available?

A: $35 USD and it will be good enough for 20-25 guests. There are ivory, hot pink, light pink, yellow, orange, white, red.

 

Q: Is the Mexican trio a singing group?

A: Yes, they sing and play 3 different kind of guitars

 

Q: Does the Mexican trio and/or the Mariachi Band play traditional songs during the processional, the walk down the aisle, etc.?

A: They can play the wedding march, but they usually play Mexican music.

 

Q: Do you have samples of their music?

A: I have a CD of the Mariachi, but no samples of the Mexican trio. You can listen to their CD during our meeting.

 

Q: What is the cost per umbrella (for shade at the cocktail hour)? And How many will be needed for a group around 30?

A: $25/umbrella. 3 or 4 umbrellas for that size group.

 

Q: Can we mingle in the wedding Gazebo during the cocktail hour after the wedding?

A: I'm afraid gazebos are only for ceremonies. The cocktail will be set up on the terrace. If you prefer we can set up the cocktail in a ballroom too.

 

Q: Can substitutions be made in the hors dâ€oeuvres menus?

A: We can not mix the menus. If you want I can only add one element from another menu to the menu you choose.

 

Q: Are there ballrooms available with windows?

A: The Aqua Ballroom is the only ballroom that has a window.

 

Q: If we choose one of the wedding packages, can we choose items (like bouquets or cakes) from different packages priced the same?

A: I am afraid we can not mix the items included with other wedding collections.

 

Q: Are plated meals available instead of buffet? What are the options there? Could each guest choose what they want off a pre-set menu?

A: I have attached the served dinner menu. Usually everybody eat the same. If you will choose different entrées you have to tell me in advance the exact number of entrée and make place card and mark them with colors so the waiters will know who is eating what.

 

Q: Can I get the layers of the cake in different flavors?

A: Yes.

A We are considering a harpist for our ceremony. We would like to know if we can choose our own music, or if we have to pick from a list. If we choose our own music, do we need to provide the sheet music??

 

B Usually you select from his repertory but as we have time if you provide us with the sheet music he can be able to perform that song.

This is some of the songs he knows:

* El Ave Maria

* Jesu Joy of man´s

* Trumpet Voluntary

* Cannon in "D"

* Weddings March

* over the Rainbow

* Yesterday once more

* imagine

* Beautiful Tonight

* hojas muertas...

WC Q. How flexible is the ceremony script and music? Do they only go by the given script or are we able to adjust it with readings we prefer? Or add or take away any part we do not want?

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
