Hey ladies, 

I was just wondering if anyone that is a 2013 bride knows if the MP is going to be doing the $1500 credit for guests, we got some package prices from my TA, but she didnt know if they were going to have the credit still or not. If anyone knows this, I would greatly appreciate it!

Ladies who just did a reception dinner at one of the restaurants, did you do your first dance, cake cutting, garter/bouquet toss there?

If so, did you hire PSAV or someone to play music or DJ at the restaurant?  Or did you just have no music?  Or did you play a CD/IPOD? 

Did someone announce your first dance, cake cutting, garter/bouquet toss?

 

I'm debating whether or not to hire PSAV or get some sort of music player for dinner.

Hi mrsbruff2be, I heard that they do not allow music in the restaurants.

Reposting for more info:

Did anyone use a babysitter at Moon Palace? The concierge has referred us to www.cancunnannyservice.com which provides babysitting services to the resort, but it's tough to let a complete stranger, in a foreign country no less, watch your toddler. Any experiences?
Anyone?
So can anyone share their experiences with having a reception at one of the restaurants? How did it feel? How was the setup (private, semi-private, in the middle of a bunch of strangers, etc)? Restaurants that are particularly good for this, or particularly bad?
We're considering Arrecifes (sp?) or Palapa Fragata. I know that Arrecifes has an outside area that is semi-private. I'm concerned that it will be really hot (dinner starting at 6 or 6:30) and that it will be too MEAT oriented (we have at least one vegetarian/fish eater). I don't know much about Palapa Fragata, I have heard the seafood is good but have no idea if it would be good for a dinner "reception". Thoughts or advice? I think we'll just use the cocktail hour for our first dance, and go to the disco after dinner. Thanks!

We booked our 2013 wedding this past February and we signed a contract! I saw this post and decided to contact my travel agent just to make sure, and she emailed our onsite coordinator to see if they did away with contracts and this was the response we just received from the coordinator: 

 

"What do you mean did away with the contract?? Yes her contract is valid, I have both signatures"

 

So im not too sure if they did away with them or not! Maybe they did right after we signed ours?

I specifically asked since I already booked if I could get 2012 prices, not only for affordability but to also be able to start planning and my TA and I were specifically told no by several people. They response was no bc apparently they are changing what they offer for 2013 for add-ons (I'm hoping that doesn't mean they are discontinuing the horse drawn carriage and stuff like that!) Anyways, I'm going to keep calling until I get SOME information, but was just wanting to make sure other 2013 brides were being told the same thing.

 

For brides that had their ceremony on the beach (like feet in sand!) were you able to pick a location on the beach, or do they just have a specific spot that you automatically get?

Hi friends! Just got back from Mexico. The wedding was wonderful! There were small things that didn't go perfectly, but all in all, it was a success! We had a blast. We won't get pro pics for awhile but Gonzalo was fabulous and I'll share as soon as I get them! Kudos too to the wonderful Sara Tamargo. I will write reviews as soon as possible.

I'm very interested to hear what went right, and what things didn't go perfectly.  Congrats.  Looking forward to the review.

    • 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.
