    Girls,

     

    I am trying to decide between using MP vendors for audio : JSAV vs. PSAV,  I found that PSAV is a little bit more expensive than JSAV, but a friend told me they have a very good DJ with lastname Coelho.

     

    HELP!

        Girls I need help and questions answered!!!!

         

         

        Me and my love are absolutely in love with the Moon palace...We went on vacation there on January 2012, and fell in love with the idea of a destination wedding....However we have some questions:

         

        Are there discounts in price for large groups, if so what is the price (If you don't mind me asking)??? Like what does it come out to for each room???

         

        Will the alcohol dispensers be allowed to be locked up or taken out if need be??

         

        Also, will our guests be able to stay a minimum of 2 days, or is there a set minimum of days????

         

        I believe those are our main questions...Thank you so much in advance :)

          Hey. So the room price depends on whether you are a member and time of the year, and if you use an agent or deal directly with Palace Resort for the bookings. There are group benefits for weddings, like the ones listed above that show how you can get unlimited wedding events that will also contribute to giving you free nights and a reduced wedding price. I am not sure about the dispencers. And in order for the rooms to count towards your wedding hey have a minimum of 3 nights, but the guest can book separately in order to only get two nights (I JUST asked Geraldine this question last week). Hope this helps.

            I was emailed the following email by my new onsite coordinator:


            "My name is Clarissa Arzola from weddings department of Palace Resorts at Cancun and it will be my pleasure to assist you in your special day .

            By the moment, we are restructuring the weddings department and Juana will be not Longer available. Be SURE in a few weeks we will get back to you with the answers to your questions and all your concerns.

            Thank you so much for your understanding and I'll be in touch soon.

            Kindest Regards,
            Clarissa Arzola"

             

            This was June 19 and I have not heard anything more from her. I am in no hurry because my wedding is in April but glad to have heard from someone.


            Resort and wedding day booked. Here we go.

              So sorry to hear about the rain but I'm glad you had a great time anyway :)

               

              I have a quick question - when you say "do not try to do or get anything ahead of time except your locations" - does that include locations for the rehearsal dinner, welcome dinner, etc.  What about planning your menus for the cocktail hour and reception?  I'm planning on making menu cards and would like to include a program of the wedding day and at least the day before for our guests so I assume I need to know this information before I go?  Just wondering how you did it!

              My coordinator was Kalena and once we got there it was Teresa. (I had no Idea why) Teresa was AWESOME and so cute! She must be new because she asked allot of questions during our meeting!

               

              The day of our meeting it had been raining for over 24 hours and the palace was flooded! I was so worried it was going to rain for all my guests vacation but even more so for my wedding. Teresa assured me it never rains on her weddings (I'm still sure this was her first week) never the less this was reassuring. **** DO NOT TRY TO DO OR GET ANYTHING AHEAD OF TIME except your locations!! The wedding coordinator can basically do whatever you want. They have a TON OF PULL!!! More than the front desk I believe!!

               

              The next few days were nice and all my guests were having a blast. Our welcome dinner at Arrifices was AWESOME!! Best food, and a great time!

               

              Wedding day - Salon at golf course was great My mom, MIL, MOH and 2 friends all got hair and makeup and looked perfect! I was the only one with hair pic and it came out perfect and everyone else still looked amazing. They know what they are doing!!

               

               

              Wedding 6pm Tucan Gazebo 7-10 reception on the Tucan terrace. these locations were by far the best. Our room was right next door. I showed everyone and saw a few weddings.....

              5:15 Tropical storm Debbie hit ( here is where my emotions are getting the best of me)

              WE asked Teresa during the first two days of rain if we could have the catholic gazebo as a back up. She said sure. Well at about 545 that gazebo started flooding. (I had no idea what was going on until about 6:20) I know she was working hard up to that point.

               

              The wedding pictures break my heart because I am such a summertime, beach loving, outdoor girl. Thanks to the amazing group of fun people we had with us I smiled throughout the whole ceremony which must have been right next to the kitchen in the Nizuc Lobby. The reception looked cute and I would have rather been married in that room. 

               

              It was still a very fun time and we had no problems with the moon palace at all! 

               

              I had enough rain for everyone so you will all be fine ;)

               

              I just wish there was a beach backdrop for unfortunate brides like me.

               

              Here are some quick pics off FB:

                    What I meant was if you try to go through someone other than your wedding coordinator you may end up paying what they have in print.... My coordinator set up everything for free. We also had little lanterns on our tables and battery operated tea lights which they put out for us. I knew that they wouldn't leave a table bare....although our cake was supposed to have flowers on top and it was bare..

                     

                    Also, I didn't want to have nightly events even though we qualified for unlimited events. I wanted people to do be able to their own thing, but funny enough everyone wanted to hang out with each other ;) That was kind of a pain because we were all spread out and restaurants cant take more than 10 or 12 people and reservations are hard to make and you still wait. So looking back I kind of wished we utilized out=r unlimited events with cocktail parties on terraces or even dinners in a gazebo. Had we done that, we would have had the outside events I wanted for my wedding!!

                     

                    You can get a PDF of all the buffet and hors deorves options, but it changed in a few months, so I would wait on that. But you can still do menu cards , even if it changed again I'm pretty sure you could get what you have written down because they really do aim to please once you are there!

                     

                    I really wanted Arrifices for our welcome dinner and I was told it was booked at 6 and we couldn't have it later than that. My coordinator put us in for an 8pm dinner reservation, and the tables were ready and set up perfectly at 7:30. 

                     

                    She just kept saying...what do you want..I feel like I could have don anything at that meeting, where I was told otherwise by Joannis in Miami.
