So Sorry to hear about your coordinator. Our wedding is the day after yours, Sunday the 25th and we have had the same experience. This is the worst service I have ever received, by a long shot!

I most certainly would think someone would have things under control, but apparently not. The only reason we finally got a response, after multiple e-mails and phone calls was because Palace wanted the remainder of the deposit, etc!!

 

When I finally got someone on the phone and explained we will be arriving in Mexico in less than 2 weeks....long pause, then ooohhhhh.  Yeah really oooohhhhh, maybe someone should pull their head out of their a** and realize people are spending a lot of time and energy, not to mention having large groups of people travel with them.

 

If you know of who we can complain to, please send along some contact info.

 

Last part of my vent, I have never seen so many brothers and sisters so jealous and selfish in my entire life. Going through something like this really shows you who your true Friends are!

Please consider another resort. Our wedding is March 25th and our coordinator quit and now we are 2 weeks away with absolutely nothing confirmed.

I would highly reccommend Now Sapphire. It is a smaller resort, so depending on the size of your group, may be a better fit. Much more luxurious, better choices, better service, etc. I am kicking myself now for not originally choosing it.

Three weeks, how exciting! I'm glad you're cast is coming off, just in time. Let me know how the bouquets go, I'm worried about how crafty I can be with mine..

I am sooo confused about photography and video   aaaahhhhhhhhhhh. I was under the impression that Smile Market was the Moon Palace photog and "moments that matter" was just a different package? I am also wondering if the CD you pay extra for is of just the pics they print (which Im guessing) and not the negatives off all the pics. And the video is an hour, which the ceremony is only 30 mins...so do they throw the same 36 or whatever pics in the sildeshow throughout.

Basically am I paying extra for all the same pics???

Hi Ladies,

 

I noticed some talk of photographers. Does anyone know what company/photog the resort uses so that I can perhaps see some of their work?

Also, is it a lot more expensive in total to bring in an outside photog? I am really skimping out on most elements of me wedding but I really want the pictures to be nice. I am hoping not to spend more than $1000 and I want a CD with pics on it and I don't care if they give me any actual pics.

 

Any advice or info would be awesome.

The Moon Palace Photographer is "Smile Market" I was contacted by Lupita Sanchez and she sent me the prices as of today (which they are very different than whats on the website) Soemeone previosly said the prices are going up in April. She sent me those too. I honestly didnt even open the attachment because I plan on booking them this week. Im still trying to look into the packages and extras right now.

Her email is wedding2@palaceresortphotos.com

 

She is very quick to resond and answer questions.

Smile Market is the in-house photographer.  They have some reviews on this website.  If you hire an outside photographer you will have to book them a room for 1 or 2 nights (people get different answers).  If you only want to spend $1000 I would book with Smile Market!

Shan..I talked to the photographer at MTM and he said that the most recent one he did at MP and the couple only got him and the assitant a day pass...so lets hope it works that way..less $$!!

    • 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
