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.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
