Moon Palace -Catholic Ceremony

Recommended Posts

Great question, lastminutebride - Thx for asking :)

To help wedding couples with their timing, we've compiled an FAQ page here with sunset times: MTM Mexican Weather Info

 

with info like this:

 

FAQ: What time should I have my ceremony in order to allow enough time for pictures before the sunsets?

The most ideal time is to have your ceremony is 2hrs before the sun sets. Here in the Mayan Riviera, once the sun starts to set it happens very quickly! Less than 20 minutes, so we need to work fast during this time.

 

If your ceremony time does not leave enough time for photos, you do have a few options. 1. Change the time of the ceremony, 2. Do the newlywed photos before the ceremony, or 3. We will use as much light as we can for the newlywed photos, then move into the lobby or other lighted areas for the rest of your couples images. This is not set in stone… just our suggestion to you.

 

For your specific question re early June, here is a link to the time chart: June Sunsets   with the info copied here:

5 pm would give you more time, so probably less pressure or feeling rushed.....just a suggestion - the final decision is yours, as we could work with either one. Which ever one you choose, it'll be great - and you'll have Amazing photos, with our incomparably magnificent Mayan Riviera for your backdrop - Priceless!!!

Enjoy your journey! team MTM :)

What reception venue did you pick if you are having the catholic ceremony? I am struggling with this. We are already booked for the Catholic ceremony. 

We are having the Catholic Ceremony and my TA said the Venado terrace and Garden they said was closest if looking for an outdoor venue.

I just booked for December '14 for the Catholic Ceremony and would like to know that too! 

 

Have you been in touch with the priest yet? He seems very nice. He is sending me information about the ceremony and what readings we can pick from etc.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
