I wanted to extend the cocktail hour to 2 hours and its $60 per person, a little steep when we can go to the lobby bar and drink for free.

 

But on a good note,  I got my OOT bags finally took me forever to pick some, got a lot of my stuff to put in them and have my dress fitting on Thursday, can't wait!!

 

Happy Valentines Day Ladies!!!

Hi Ladies, 

 

Moon Palace 2013 bride here.

 

I am trying to figure everything out now because I like to be 40 steps ahead of where I need to be

 

Debating if I want a DJ or iPod (fiancee is set on a DJ but the price seems insane), in house photographer or bring one in, and wondering if they will let me bring in silk flower bouquets because one of the bridesmaids is allergic. Also, does anyone know how much it is to upgrade from the complimentary bouquet to one of the themed one's that come with the designer packages.

 

I am having a bit of a hard time getting info because they just started doing these new designer packages in March 2012 and there is not really much info on upgrades, etc.

 

Any input would be great : )

I was wondering this for the cermony,  I got my 75 nights finally so I will have free private functions and the person number doesnt matter.  BUT.... Although ill be getting married on the beach and there is deffinatley pleanty of room, im still concerned that they are going to charge me per chair over 35.

 

I also heard that they make you pay for the full price of the wedding and private functions FIRST and then REFUND you  a month later....

I dont know!  Im so confused!  A little over 70 days out and still dont have a budget OR  the cocktail hour/dinner area reserved athough I requested them at about 100 days out.

 

I called to day to speak to the manager and of course was sent to voice mail. 
Im really trying to be patient but come on.....  a budget would be nice.

The only place that quoted 35 people max was for the dinner reservation.  I imagine that is what you are talking about.  We are planning on having about 70 guests, but with our room nights, should easily qualify for free events.  We will use the dinner reservation for 35 for our rehearsal dinner, and only invite immediate family and bridal party (totaling about 30-35 people). 

 

I personally have not heard of MP charging $6-7 a chair for any over 35, but again, I'm not sure which function you are talking about?

I qualify & have NOT been told about $$ per chair for anything over. 35 people. Not sure where your getting this information from. Also, if you have a group contract and qualify for free events you DO NOT have to pay for your free events (I posted this a while back stated from a MP contact) you do pay for your room and that is what gets reimbursed about a month later. Hope this help

@palacebride27...

 

There is not a 35 guest limit for the ceremony. They will not charge you for guests over 35. Most of the ceremony locations can easily handle 120 guests or more. No extra charges. 

 

As far as the free private events for 75+ room nights goes, you should not have to pay for the events ahead of time. Many of us had this question/concern and it has been confirmed by a wedding coordinator and posted in this thread, you will NOT have to pay for the events ahead of time and wait for a refund. If you qualify for the free private events by getting 75+ room nights, you can book events without paying ahead of time.

 

If you have your room booked through the resort, and not a 3rd party TA, you will most likely need to pay for your room in full, and then will get refunded the free 7 nights post travel. It usually takes a few weeks or more. 

 

I would too be frustrated about having little to no contact 70 days out. I specifically flew to MP 15 months before our wedding date in order to meet with a coordinator in person and lock in our locations right then and there. 

 

I would not be worried about an extra seating charge for more than 35 guests. That 35 persons limit only applies to the dinner reservation, which is not even needed if you qualify for unlimited free events.

So get this...wedding date is March 23rd...thought I had everything confirmed awhile back and was waiting on the final contract with Ivis. Got an email today and a phone call saying (and I had confirmed this with her earlier after feedback on this blog)...no Carribean Terrace for our dinner because dinner can't be served up there if you don't pay for a full private event. WHAT!!?? I had specifically outlined this in an email with her and she goes, well I am sorry that was an error. I am so not happy! I argued a bit and she is "going to work on it" but I may be back to square one with dinner reservations and we are 5 weeks out.

 

Cross your fingers that she "can make it work." UGHHH!

I think the $6-7 dollars per chair you may have read about is in regards to the upgrades (e.g., tiffany chairs or bamboo chairs). If you stick with the white folding chairs, it should all be included, regardless of number of guests.

I have to contact Ivis for my welcome/rehersal dinner since we are staying at Moon Palace, but everything else wedding related will be at Sun Palace.  Where is everyone having their welcome/rehersal dinner.  I should be qualifying for the free unlimited private events, so limitations are not an issue.

 

Thanks! :)

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
