Hello Everyone!

 

I have to say this is one great website...however I'm still trying to figure things out on here! My fiance and I got engaged Aug 2009, and we were actually supposed to be getting married Aug 28th 2010. I ended up postponing (for a few reasons) largely because our guest list was getting so out of control! I was starting to have anxiety over standing up in front of 250+ people saying my vows, and the center of such large attention. smile41.gifNow that things have settled, we decided the best way to keep it small and intimate was to do a destination wedding.

 

 

We have not picked a specific date yet, but we are hoping to do Jan/Feb 2012 at Moon Palace in Cancun. I have to say I am a little intimidated about the task ahead! I don't even know where/how to start! At this point on the MP website, I do not have the option to submit a request for 2012. I can see it fills up FAST and want to make sure we get the date (and more importantly the time) we want. I ended up contacting them using the "contact us" tab on their site to ask them what I can do to make sure we get the date we want, but I have not heard from them yet! I have heard they can be a little slow at responding, so I will just have to be patient! blink.gif

 

I have to say I am getting some negative feedback about Mexico. My parents are very concerned...to ease some of the nervousness I have been sending them loads of websites/blogs/info that I find on the Internet. They are slowly warming up to it, but the next hurdle will be convincing everyone else its safe too!

 

Thank you all for your postings! Even though I am TERRIBLE at making decisions (especially when I have tons of options), hopefully this website will help me be more proactive! I know I will be looking to you all for all my random rants, raves, questions, and concerns! Thanks in advance! cheesy.gif

UPDATE!

 

I actually got a response from MP this morning! Wow that was pretty darn fast from what I've heard. So I got an email from Jennifer Gamboa,

 the Wedding Sales Assistant, and said this:

 

"Good Day! We are currently not booking weddings for 2012 at the moment. You will need to  check back with us in January. We don't have any waiting list dates and times are subject to availability. Thank you and have a wonderful day!"

 

So looks like early Jan 1st I will be up and trying to book a date on thier site! Wish me luck! ;)

Good luck with the planning! I felt exactly that way in the beginning and slowly things have fallen into place. I am very indecisive and with all the great tips, ideas, and advice, it is hard to decide.

In any case, looking forwar to reading your "random rants, raves, questions, and concerns!"

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
