Hello Everyone,

I wanted to see if anyone was changing their package to one of the new CC collections? They look beautiful but i was curious if it was worth the extra money and if anyone else was thinking the same thing. 

Also, I am getting nervous as far as photography is concerned. I have seen some amazing pics from people who hired their own outside photographers. Does anyone have recent pictures from a Moon Palace wedding that they can share?? The pictures are the most important to me so I want to make sure the photographers they supply are quality. I also need to get an idea of what a good reception are might be. 

Glad to have joined this site, I have found it really helpful! So excited for my June 2012 wedding!!! 

Any insight would be much appreciated!

I looked at the new packages too and just decided that it was too costly for how many items we really didn't need. We found a great local florist so we'll be using him to do the ceremony/reception flowers. He'll deliver to the hotel and the WC will set up. It'll be a fraction of what the costs would have been. But, if you are in love with a package you should do it!

As for photography, I looked at the sample books that they had available at the resort and was not impressed. Some brides have been very happy with it from what I've read on this forum, but I did not feel that I would be one of them. I could't afford Del Sol (even though I am completely in love with their work), but I did love the work of their other, lower priced company, La Luna.  I posted a link to an even they did at moon palace.

Happy planning and congrats on the upcoming wedding!

Do we have to book all the guest rooms through the same travel agent (or the hotel itself) in order to be able to get the group perks?

My fiance and I decided yesterday that we are going to stay at the Moon Palace but we don't have dates yet. But yay!!

Thanks in advanced!

 

you will need to have a group contract in place and book through the same TA to get the amenities that go with the group block (free rooms, free nights, upgrades, free events etc.)

 

we do ALOT of palace weddings and they are sponsors here on the forum.  If you want more info on group rates and perks you can go here: http://www.wrighttravelagency.com/leads/inquiry/

My aunt has a Palace membership and she says they get discounts and perks. It may be better then to book through her membership . But I will keep this at hand in case things dont work out. I wonder how much of a discount we would get? Thanks a lot anyways!!

I'm thinking of taking the free bridal bouquet at the resort and separating them in half for two bridesmaids.  Has anyone done this?  Also, what should I bring for that?  Just floral tape?!

From my understanding they bring the bouquet with them upon picking you up. So time would be very short to do this.

Can we ask them for it earlier? I wanted to decorate mine with preserved flowers I'm bringing from home to match the corsages and boutonnieres I'm making myself.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
