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?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
