I think a lot of brides used the Brazilian restaurant as their "semi private" reception- they have patios outside the restaurant so I think you can get your table set up out there...they have really good food too! Hopefully your WC can help you with ideas with this- let me know what she says and I will let you know if the restaurants were good!  We really only ate at the restaurants on the Nizuc and Grand side- I didn't journey over to the Sunrise side at all for meals.

Thanks

Hey, this goes out to all the brides who have already married at the MP.

 

Can you please tell me how many songs i need whilst the guests are waiting, the bride walking down the isle, for after the ceremony, etc?

 

Once the ceremony is over, the cocktail hour will follow. Do you supply your own music whilst the guests have drinks and chat? I assume my fiance and i will be whisked off for photos so dont want to leave my guests in silence. 

 

Any help or advice would be greatly received.

Your WC will tell you you need about 5 or 6 songs..I had 3 for before the ceremony (but you could probably have 4 just in case) 1 for the bridal party, 1 for my entrance, and one for the recessional...then they repeated the beginning music while we were toasting with the champagne.  You will not have music at your cocktail hour unless you are paying for it.

 

If you have a nice wedding coordinator and your cocktail hour and reception are right next to each other, your WC may end up having the tech come early and play music during the cocktail hour- that is what my WC did for me free of charge!

 

I don't think it really matters either way though- your guests will have the sounds of the ocean and good conversations to keep them occupied! :)

Hi All,

 

I am getting married at the Moon Palace May 2013. I am coming from the UK with 11 of us including the bride and groom, I seem to be having a few issues as to how I would like my big day to go, there is a min of 20 people for the private function which I find annoying as I should not be penalised due to only 11 of us coming, it has cost thousands already just to get us there from the UK before we have even paid for the wedding.... My co ordinate has said the hotel have advised they can lower this to 15 people but I have to pay for 15 people. 

 

I then said I would like a cocktail hour then the dinner outside at the private function or in a restaurant and then on the beach for the after party until 10pm, here is where the issue seems to be, I was advised to have the cocktail hour before but what would be the point?

 

I have requested the Tucan gazebo and terrace, can anyone tell me the size of the aisle as I need a runner?

 

Hair/Make up - Any recommendations?

Fire works - Any recommendations?

Private function food? Any recommendations?

 

Sorry for the long essay and questions but im I am very nervous as you can imagine.....

Hi Steph,

 

I think they set the minimum people because you are given a private staff of about 7-10 people and they don't want to pay and staff these people for a party of 11 people.  I understand where you are coming from, but you can have a semi-private dinner on the terrace of the Brazilian restaurant or other places they may recommend. 

 

Typically they have the cocktail hour before dinner- that is how the flow is set up.  So you could do a cocktail hour (private) and then do a semi private dinner with your reservations and then go to the disco to dance the night away!! :)

 

I did not have the resort do my makeup- but the spa at the Moon Golf Spa is amazing!! They are did a great job on my wedding party of 10's hair! Just be sure to bring a picture of the front and back exactly how you want it to look as some of them don't speak English very well.

 

I saw the fireworks at our rehersal dinner from another wedding and they were cool!!

 

For the food- Mexican all the way!!! We had that for the wedding and then the Yucatan menu for the rehersal dinner and it was all amazing food!! :)

 

Hope this helps- let me know if you have any other questions! :)

Yes you need about 5-6 songs- I put a paper that labeled what each song was for with the CD.  I brought down our iHome to play music at the cocktail hour since there are plugs on the lamp post.  I just plugged it in and put on a chair and it worked out perfectly!
