    FutureRN2011- What time did your ceremony start? It looks like you got some great pics with full sun and then with it setting...? Am trying to decide what time we should start, debating between 5pm and 6. Thanks!

      I am planning something similar and im using this company.... they are very nice and have awesome reviews on tripadvisor.

       



      Hello ladies!

      Loving all the comments on the board, I've been checking every few days and really should post more!

       

      I did want to let those of you who might be interested know that I got a final 'NO' on using the dock at Moon Palace for boat after the wedding. Before I booked and asked about it, it was a maybe and now it's a no. Oh well! We're planning to rent our own boat for the day now for a snorkel trip for everyone. If anyone has any opinions/advise on this, please let me know!

          Soon2bMrsT - I love your colors! Question, did they include a mic and speakers in the package? I've heard its really windy on the beach, and guests in the past have had problems hearing the vows and such. Also, how did the beach look? Was there a lot of seaweed like people have mentioned?

            I have taken comfort in knowing that there are many beautiful locations to choose from.  On that note, I finally had to call Moon Palace to get someone to listen to me (but I was less than 60 days out at the time, before that I only dealt with them via email).  Also I went through like 4 coordinators.

            Thanks for your help.  I guess Im just anxious because I see on here that there are girls who are getting married after me saying they have their locations secured already.  So then I start to panic thinking that Im not doing something right! haha.  I guess I need to relax a bit and just wait it out!!

              as long as they are not getting married on the same day as you, then don't worry! Honestly it is better to have nothing set, than to set stuff, print itinerary's or whatever, and then not get it and have to back track. Wait until you are so much closer and have comfort in the fact you dont need to stress right now. Easier said than done ;)

                    Is the resort making you pay the vendor fee or day passes? Janessa said I would have to buy day passes for the vendors. I don't believe she is right, doesn't make since to pay the vendor fee when they are the resorts preferred vendors.

                      Zuniga is a vendor that MP works with so there is no day passes/vendor fees to utilize them
