VGirl’s Wedding Review ~ Moon Palace Resort, Cancun Mexico~ April 24, 2010

Recommended Posts

Thank you for such a great review. You gave me such great ideas.

 

I had a quick question. On the contract I noticed that you are NOT allowed to bring "outside vendors". I notice though that everyone brings at least a couple of suitcases full of things, so are the talking about just food and beverage, not decor? I ask because I am bring my own table linens and most of the decor and wanted to make sure it was allowed.

 

Also, regarding the subermisble floralytes, did you put those in and turn them on after you filled the vase, or before? Do they just sink to the bottom?

Hi Courtney :)  You can bring whatever decor items you want and just give them to your coordinator to set up.  I brought my own tablecloths too.  By outside vendors they mean outside photographers, florists etc., however they do work with Deco Cancun.  There are also ways to get around using a photographer of your choice as long as you bring them as a guest.  As for the floralyte, I just gave them to my wedding coordinator and she coordinated with Deco Cancun (who provided my centerpieces) and they put them in the vases along with the pink acrylic Ice I had given them.  Hope this helps.

I just have to say that you looked beautiful and the pictures were fabulous.  We are having an August 24, 2012 Wedding at Moon Palace and everything that you posted was so great and helpful to me.  I must tell you that i wasn't going t do the horse drawn carriage thing but after seeing your picture and reading what you wrote....It brought a tear to my eye and now i must do it as well.  I want to get married in one of the gazebos and was wondering which one is the biggest....i have about 50-60 guests coming.  Any input would be great.  Also, i thought your canvas tote bags you made for your guests were adorable.  And again, your wedding was BEAUTIFUL and i had to show my mother last night.  CONGRATULATIONS!!!

 

thanks, Heather

~Thanks Heather :)  I think all of the gazebos are pretty much the same size however the Chapel Gazebo has church pews instead of the white chairs for people to sit on.  I'm not sure how many so I don't know if it accomodates more or less people.  I do know that that Chapel Gazebo is beautiful as well as the area surrounding it but it is usually reserved for Catholic weddings so they will take priority over non-catholic ceremonies.  Good luck and happy planning :)

 

 

~Thanks Kelly!  I'm glad it was helpful :)  I'm sure yours will be just as beautiful if not more so!  We really didn't take too much stuff with us but what we did take made a big difference in creating the atmosphere that we wanted for our wedding ....ie. tablecloths and chair sashes, freeze dried rose petals (amazing for pictures and more color at the ceremony), pink and green lanterns for the lounge furniture set-up, pink floralytes and crystals for the centerpieces, our personalized shot glasses ;)  My advice would be to focus on the things that will make the biggest impact at your ceremony and reception as well as the things/traditions that are important to you (so glad we did our lazzo and sand ceremony... it made the ceremony more personal and special for us) and don't get too caught up on all of the 'little knick knack type of things'.  There are so many beautiful things you can do and make for weddings but if you try to do too many it can create more stress than is necessary.  Have fun with it!  We are still so happy that we got married in Cancun and it really was the wedding of our dreams.  It was completely worth it and we would do it all over in a second.

    • I recently was married at Las Caletas and had Tom Moks for our wedding photographer. I stumbled upon his work on Instagram and was captivated by the colors, authenticity, and ease of his photos. Each couple looked stunning and the moments they shared looked so passionate and pure. After reaching out to Tom, via email from his website, he responded a couple days later and we discussed his availability for our wedding date. I had to have him! Before I pulled the trigger and finalized down payments though, I decided to research some more and check out his reviews just to be safe. I came to this review thread and was so disappointed when I read about what brides were saying about their experiences.  I had it set it my mind that Tom would be our photographer and felt confused and scared to move forward with him. I had said from the beginning of the wedding planning (and heard from many previous brides) that photography is perhaps the most important money you will spend during your wedding planning and to not be frugal. Cautiously and anxiously, I decided to give a shot, fingers-crossed, and go with Tom. What I can tell anyone that stumbles across this page, like I did a few months ago, was that Tom was without a doubt the most incredible, talented, kind-hearted, genuine, hardworking, genius creator and capturer I’ve ever met or witnessed! From start to finish, Tom was honest, helpful, and easy going!  We decided to go with the package that gave us the opportunity to do a “Couples Shoot” before the actual wedding day (we decided to do this instead of traditional engagement pictures back home in Chicago as we loved the historic beauty and colors of downtown Puerto Vallarta.) Before the shoot, Tom and I had several phone conversations, in which we discussed all the logistics and details to the shoot. He answered my questions, gave me honest and real responses, and I told him we’d follow his lead. We chose to trust him and not overthink or plan out what we wanted. We trusted him to guide us and deliver amazing photo. And he did JUST THAT. I typically HATE taking pictures and feel so uncomfortable the second the lens is pointed in my direction. But Tom made this experience not only doable, but enjoyable! He made me feel beautiful, he made me feel comfortable, he made me feel amazing!   If you’re looking for someone who won’t be honest and candid with you, if you’re not able to take constructive feedback, if you’re not willing to laugh at yourself and your awkwardness, if you’re not willing to trust his process and let go of the control, Tom Moks may not be the photographer for you.  If you’re looking for photos back the next day or even next couple weeks, Tom may not be the photographer for you. Just know, he is an artist who is capturing moments that will last a lifetime. There should be no rush for that. I was MORE than happy waiting a couple of months for my photographs because they were the most stunning and incredible photos I’ve ever seen of myself and my husband. It was worth the wait.  I cannot thank Tom Moks enough for the work he did for my husband and I. He was present every step of the way and went above and beyond to capture each moment. I genuinely will miss him and hope you all get to experience the same feeling we did with Tom as your photographer!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
