Hi Women,

 

Thought it would be helpful if us 2011 Brides of Moon Palace also had a thread to start talking about our weddings...hopefully we get more great advice like the comments posted in the 2010 thread!

 

Happy Planning!

Hi Cynthia,

 

I'm hoping to book my wedding in at the Moon Palace for the first week of January 2011 but the TA are telling me there are not enough seats on the planes heading that way!!! I'm thinking this is ridiculous and need to do some more canvassing of TA's.

You all will love the Moon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We got married in July 2010. You can check my posts and wedding review thru my profile any time for info. congratulations to all you new brides to be!

some pointers:

1.wedding coordinator- if they are hard to reach, ask what days they work at the resort and email them those days. email photographs of inspiration for your wedding and ask for palace resorts catalogs to see your choices.

2.photographer booking room- yes we had to, but it was a must to get the photographer we wanted. we paid for only one night stay. the travel agents said two, but we only booked them for one night and gave them no info about the photographer. the wedding coordinator is the only person you have to tell and comply with on the photographer information.

3.hair salon-yes, we got our style free. the travel agent said it wasn't possible, but everyone gets salon credit when staying 3+ days. Be sure to book your hairstyle and bridesmaids hairstyle appointments several weeks in advance. My maid of honor had to beg to get a hair appointment since there was little space.

4. traveling with a dress-airlines do this all the time so no need to worry. They see a white suit bag and already know the deal! They will put your dress in a compartment or in 1st class. Be sure to have a heavy duty cover just in case 1st class travelers spill drinks on it. Hang it immediately upon arrival in an area where it will get shower steam. My dress didnt even had to get it steamed then.

5. INFORM INFORM INFORM GUESTS-if you make a good plan, timeline for all events, and share information with guests about traveling to mexico, the resort, mapped locations, etc. everything will run smooth. We did this all on our wedding website and it was a relief to not have to answer questions duing our entire wedding trip. Do this and it will save a huge hassle later!

    • 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.
