He sends PDF's so they are easy to print for a welcome packet...

         

         

         

        Awesome!  Thanks...I will contact him today.

          OH no!  That is horrible news...we were definitely looking forward to that.  Sigh!  Thanks for letting me know though.

            Great job on the bags!  I am sure they will be a big hit.  I'm working on my items now and have a lot of the same items.  I just got to find either bug repellant or those wipes.

            I know I have been a "silent" partner to you all, but know I have been reading and truly appreciate all of the advice and creative ideas shared! I was packing my OOT bags (less than 3 weeks til we leave!) and thought I would share. I know this was one of my favorite things to research during the planning process and thought others may find it helpful. I am a travel agent and have been to the Moon Palace before, so I had an idea of what to expect. We kept the bags and gifts small, bearing in mind that all of our guests would have to bring these items home and may only have carry on size luggage. We thought of the travel mugs and beach towels, but knowing the hotel provides this we couldn't see our guests actually using them. Please don't be offended if this is something you planned on doing, it was just not something that worked for us and I am sure your bags will be beautiful!

             

            Below is the contents of the bag. We plan to hand deliver them instead of paying $3 each to the bellman. We created a welcome card that thanks our guests, a wedding timeline, map, and contents of bag. Enjoy!

             

            I got these bags for 1.99 each from Christmas Tree Shop last summer! We are giving one per couple and one per single guest.

            photo.JPG

             

            These are the contents of the bag:

            Suntan lotion and Aloe Vera (bought the travel bottles for $1 for both at the dollar tree, and added suntan lotion and aloe vera for about $.25 each) - these will go in emergency kit once in Mexico

            Hugs and Kisses from the Mr. and Mrs. in an organza bag (about $.50 per bag with candy)

            Fruit tootsie rolls also in organza bag ($.50 per bag with candy)

            Pretzels (about $.50 each)

            Cocoa and cinnamon almonds (about $.50 each)

            Tissues (about $.25 each)

            Colgate wisps ($1/2 pack from dollar tree)

            Fan for the girls, hankerchief for the guys (about $1 each)

            Propel and Crystal light drink packets (no lemonade in Mexico)!

            Starfish wine bottle stopper (about $2.50 each)

            Emergency kit (about $5 for contents)

             

             

            photo (1).JPG

             

            Emergency kit in detail:

            Ear plugs

            Safety pins

            Bandaids

            Alcohol wipes

            Wet Ones

            Insect repellant wipes

            After bite wipes

            Shout wipes

            Chapstick with spf

            Advil

            Pepto chewable tablets

            photo (2).JPG

             

            This is the starfish bottle stopper:

            photo (4).JPG

             

            And lastly, on the dinner tables (we are doing the reception dinner - not private event) we will have jordan almonds with a note attached saying we have a special gift waiting at home for them. We plan to take a picture with each couple or single guest and frame it in this beautiful frame from Kohls:

            photo (3).JPG

             

            Hope this helps! Please let me know if I can answer any questions. Happy planning and best of luck to everyone!!

I never did hear from my on-site coordinator so I will be curious how this plays out upon check-in. I know that my on-site coordinator received all the emails that were sent between Joannis and I to confirm everything so maybe thats why she never contacted me, knowing that its all confirmed between the three of us.

               

              Oh well, I have confidence that MP will make my experience great! I'm sure I will be up all night with excitement! Oh and going to the airport with all my luggage should be interesting......that has been the worst part of this all....trying to jam everything into the luggage without overstuffing the luggage. Oh well, we might need help with all the bags and that was just with me bringing the minimum. I'm sure I will post once we get there to show you all how beautiful it is!!

               

              I'm glad you decided to go through with your shower and bachelorette party. Have fun!

              Hope everyone is doing well!

              Great job. Those bags are way cute!

              Does anyone know is MP allows wishing lanterns on site? 

               

               



              I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack.

               

              I had terrible communication leading up to the wedding but again will say what I've read so many times before - the ladies at the resort KNOW what they are doing. We had a little rain on our wedding day and ended up moving the reception indoors but it was still the wedding of my dreams. It really was perfect!!! If anyone has any questions please let me know! I will try and do a review shortly!!!

               

              PS Sophia, contact PSAV - I found them way more reasonable than JSAV

                Yes I had my hair done at the salon and they did a great job. I had Silvinia at the golf course salon. She was fabulous with hair and makeup. I don't have many pics as I just got back but I will def get some up this week and I'll try and get a good hair one for you.

                Great job. Those bags are way cute!

                 

                 

                I really wanted these lanterns as well. But unfortunately, MP doesn't allow them since the resort is so close to the airport.

                 

                 

                Welcome back SummerDawn! And congratulations! You look great in the picture, but I can't wait to see more. It looks like you did your hair the way I want to do mine. Did the salon do it and do you have any pictures?

                I'm getting my hair done at the golf course salon! Would you recommend Silvinia for me to request her?  Any tips? :)
