I looked at the new packages too and just decided that it was too costly for how many items we really didn't need. We found a great local florist so we'll be using him to do the ceremony/reception flowers. He'll deliver to the hotel and the WC will set up. It'll be a fraction of what the costs would have been. But, if you are in love with a package you should do it!
As for photography, I looked at the sample books that they had available at the resort and was not impressed. Some brides have been very happy with it from what I've read on this forum, but I did not feel that I would be one of them. I could't afford Del Sol (even though I am completely in love with their work), but I did love the work of their other, lower priced company, La Luna. I posted a link to an even they did at moon palace.
I wanted to see if anyone was changing their package to one of the new CC collections? They look beautiful but i was curious if it was worth the extra money and if anyone else was thinking the same thing.
Also, I am getting nervous as far as photography is concerned. I have seen some amazing pics from people who hired their own outside photographers. Does anyone have recent pictures from a Moon Palace wedding that they can share?? The pictures are the most important to me so I want to make sure the photographers they supply are quality. I also need to get an idea of what a good reception are might be.
Glad to have joined this site, I have found it really helpful! So excited for my June 2012 wedding!!!
Any insight would be much appreciated!
