Loving all the comments on the board, I've been checking every few days and really should post more!

 

I did want to let those of you who might be interested know that I got a final 'NO' on using the dock at Moon Palace for boat after the wedding. Before I booked and asked about it, it was a maybe and now it's a no. Oh well! We're planning to rent our own boat for the day now for a snorkel trip for everyone. If anyone has any opinions/advise on this, please let me know!

Soon2bMrsT - I love your colors! Question, did they include a mic and speakers in the package? I've heard its really windy on the beach, and guests in the past have had problems hearing the vows and such. Also, how did the beach look? Was there a lot of seaweed like people have mentioned?

I have taken comfort in knowing that there are many beautiful locations to choose from.  On that note, I finally had to call Moon Palace to get someone to listen to me (but I was less than 60 days out at the time, before that I only dealt with them via email).  Also I went through like 4 coordinators.

Thanks for your help.  I guess Im just anxious because I see on here that there are girls who are getting married after me saying they have their locations secured already.  So then I start to panic thinking that Im not doing something right! haha.  I guess I need to relax a bit and just wait it out!!

as long as they are not getting married on the same day as you, then don't worry! Honestly it is better to have nothing set, than to set stuff, print itinerary's or whatever, and then not get it and have to back track. Wait until you are so much closer and have comfort in the fact you dont need to stress right now. Easier said than done ;)

Is the resort making you pay the vendor fee or day passes? Janessa said I would have to buy day passes for the vendors. I don't believe she is right, doesn't make since to pay the vendor fee when they are the resorts preferred vendors.

Zuniga is a vendor that MP works with so there is no day passes/vendor fees to utilize them

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • 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!
