    OMG nsg4729 you are AMAZING! THANK YOU THANK YOU for the information. It's a little embarrassing how excited I get finding out more about this process, but I am a planning freak, so really appreciate it. When is your wedding? I keep hearing from my TA that they aren't releasing any 2013 pricing information, which is making it very difficult to start budgeting ANYTHING! Thanks again!

      My wedding was at 4P.  Our appointments started at 12:00p...we were out of there by 2:30P, and in the room by 2:45P.  WC comes 15 minutes before the wedding to push you out of the room.  We had a good hour for getting ready photos, and I even put makeup on a flower girl, so go from there.  I tried to move my appointments as close as I could because I didn't want my hair to fall.  My hair is REALLY heavy, and I wanted it to be curly.  I was completely wind blown by the end of cocktail hour, but it made it.  :)

        Glad to hear you're enjoying yourself down there!  I'm very excited for you!

        Hey ladies! I'm here at Moon Palace and it is fabulous! I had my meeting with Claudia today and she was very sweet and had all the information correct and all taken care of what we talked about. I left everything in her hands and I'm positive it will be fine! Cant wait for our wedding Friday!

          I thought the spa would let you know what time to book hair and make up...ugggg I never even thought of timing

              Thanks Jamie:/) We are at the airport, flight at 9:45!! Ladies make sure you check baggage fees and pack well. Was almost able to check only 4 bags (who actually remembers what's in each bag)? Well my cake server was in the one we were going to check so the options were after everyone said congratulations were to leave it it check my bag. You know what I chose!! But the 3rd bag is $125 us air. I was prepared but I should have separated the set and put the knife on a checked bag which would have saved $125 Posted Image

                Good luck to all the brides this week....
                 
                I had a 4PM ceremony and started my hair and make up at 11AM. They give you 1 and a half hour for the hair (which I needed but i have a lot of hair) and than I had a 12:30 makeup appointment which they give u 1 hour for and I needed that as well. So I was done at 1:30 and was able to watch over my daughter's makeup for a little and than go get lunch. I got to my room at 2:15 and was ready for my photographer at 3 with no sweating and rushing and I felt very calm. If I would have started at 12 like everyone had suggested i would not have been done until 2:30 and been rushing to make the [photographer at 3 and get laced into my dress and not been able to eat anything. my hair and makeup were fine in the room it was when you get to the wind blowing beach that ur hair starts getting ripped up. Just try to pick a style that will not get completely destroyed from the wind. half up or to the side or updo and you will be fine ;). I suggest being ready early rather than freaking out that ur late. The make up and hair took everyone the full time except for the kids. 1 and a half hours for hair and an hour for make up. Good luck ;)

                  Thanks Dan & mpweddingplan!! Looks like it's smack dab in the middle. Guess you won't really know until you get there and see where you room is in the Nizuc area.

                  If you look at this map: http://www.palaceres...P_map975c86.pdf you can see it, labeled as #36.

                  All 3 of the Gazebos (Bugambilia, Tucan and the Catholic are located in the Nizuc Section of Moon Palace.  Depending on which building your room block is in, your walk could be very short or sort of long...but the map that LurkerDan posted should give you an idea of general locations.

                   



                   

                  Glad things are going well. Have a great time. Can't wait to hear about the wedding and see pics!

                    I can't remember who else has Zaray as their coordinator but I'm wondering if anyone has heard from her in the last couple of weeks? She was pretty good about responding but I have sent her several emails and haven't heard back from her in about 2 weeks now. I'm trying not to fret just yet but I was hoping to have everything lined out and my itinerary completed so I could take some of my OOT bags with me this weekend for a shower back home. I really don't want to have to mail the bags since we don't want to take extra bags to Mexico and I have no idea what I have done with the receipts for all the stuff. Grrrr! Mexico time sucks when you are trying to get things done. Wooooo saaaaaaawwwww!!!
