Thanks girl!!

 

And I'm with Cafe- it just depends on when and where you're traveling from.  My wedding is over Thanksgiving so it's more expensive than other times of the year- it will be about $1800 for a week per person.

Hey thank you so much for the emails. I was able to get in contact with Daniela and she was about to tell me who my new coordinator is and got the ball rolling. Thanks!!

Also for Marvin, I found he was really prompt with emails if you submitted a request through his website instead of through a direct email.

 

I emailed her early yesterday and never got a response... did you email or call?  I swear it's like my emails to them are going into junk mail!  Arghh!

Hey ladies and LurkerDan! Sorry I haven't been on in a while but I thought I would check in to see how everyone's planning was going. Seems like we have a lot of new brides on here!! Congrats to you all!!

 

Shan- I would take at least a couple hundred dollars in small bills. Especially if you are going to tip your wait staff and bartenders or plan on doing any kind of excursions. To be honest a couple of bucks to your bartenders or pool wait staff will get you really great service. But like I said before if you shop in town at the Fiesta Market or other stores they will give you change in pesos. So the more smaller bills you have the less pesos you'll be trying to get rid of at the end of your trip.

 

We got my husband's ring at www.TungstunWorld.com. AMAZING prices and they have a great return and exchange policy. Lots of different styles to choose from. My husband works with his hands so we wanted something that could withstand a lot of wear and tear so we chose tungston instead of gold. He wears his gold Aggie ring every day and it's really taken a toll over the years so we knew gold wasn't an option.
 

Moon Palace photographer is Smile Market (for those that have been asking). When I wrote my review I added a few of their pictures along with my thoughts. One thing I will say is if you have specific pictures you want taken make sure you let them know. I failed to do this and I don't have a picture of my husband's face while I was walking down the aisle. I'm very disappointed that I don't have one capturing that.

 

As far as all the price questions.......we were quoted last summer $176 per person per night for double occupancy. For single occupancy it was over $300. Your best bet is to get a block either through a travel agent or from the resort. My TA told us that usually what the TA quotes is the same as the resort. We found our TA from this website.....Tammy Wright recommended her to us and then we also called a few TA's in our area and we felt more comfortable using VacationsForLess since they knew about the resort/credits and have booked a lot of weddings there.

 

Good luck to all of you with all the new changes!! I hope that it does make things go smoother not having to deal with the Miami office. I have total faith in the on-site coordinators though so I know all of your wedding days will turn out beautifully. Please feel free to PM me for questions about the vendors we used or if you need prices. I still have all of that stuff saved for now.

Ok this is a stupid question, but does Moon Palace book only one bride per time slot?  Like I am 10/18/12 at 4pm.. am I the only bride on 10/18/12 at 4pm?  Just wondering how the location bookings go.. like if I want xyz gazebo is there a chance it could be booked, or would all locations be available?  
I believe only one wedding per time slot. However, that doesn't mean all locations are available for every time slot. For ex., if I get married at Tucan Gazebo at 2pm and have my cocktail hour at Tucan Terrace from 2:45 to 3:45, all Tucan locations would be probably be considered "booked" until at least the 4pm timeslot (or even 5pm).

One of our groomsmen were not able to make our wedding.  He's in the army and one of his soldiers passed.  The resort won't give him a refund until he produces proof that he's in the army and a confirmation of death...

 

I feel so crappy for him right now.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
