It depends what your budget is. You can always pay less for photos, but the quality might not be that great. For me the photos were the most important. We were going to go with Claudia Rodriguez photography or playaweddings (both outside vendors) until our amazing friend offered to do our photos for us at cost. We wanted anywhere from 5-8 hours of photo coverage which costed anywhere from $2500-$3500. You also need to pay a vendor fee if you use someone other than the resort's approved vendors.

Ok thanks! Do u buy chance have a list of the approved vendors?

I'm not too sure since I knew I wanted other photographers and didn't bother asking. From what I remember from scouring this site, I believe they are Smile Market and Del Sol? (not 100% sure though)

I am looking to get married at the Moon Palace in early May 2014.  I am not sure where to start, I am new at this, lol.  Basically, we will have about 10 guests, plus me, my fiance, and his daughter.  We are hoping to stay for our honeymoon after the wedding as his daughter will be going back with family but we will be spending a few days before the wedding also.  We want to use the complimentary package as we just want something simple.  I was wondering if anyone else has gone with the complimentary package and if so, what are your thoughts?  Also, are there certain things I should be aware of or ask the WC about concerning activities to do as a group and not really a reception but a little celebration after the wedding?  We are looking to keep the cost as low as possible and only really want to spend around $6000 including accommodations but not travel.  Also, our guests will be paying their own way. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Jenny,

 

I came across your post while looking at different MP threads. You should join the Newbie, Moon Palace 2013 thread or the 2012 thread! Tons of brides have posted so much information on there and reply really quickly to people like you and I who are trying to figure everything out.

 

From what I have read in the threads most brides choose the complimentary package and then add on any extras they may want, to get the most flexibility and lowest cost. I am not sure about your reception question, but am sure the threads will have great ideas or somebody who may know better. I did see some people say they opted for a bonfire celebration after a short dinner, and that that was more fun and informal. Congrats to you and good luck!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
