So Sorry to hear about your coordinator. Our wedding is the day after yours, Sunday the 25th and we have had the same experience. This is the worst service I have ever received, by a long shot!

I most certainly would think someone would have things under control, but apparently not. The only reason we finally got a response, after multiple e-mails and phone calls was because Palace wanted the remainder of the deposit, etc!!

 

When I finally got someone on the phone and explained we will be arriving in Mexico in less than 2 weeks....long pause, then ooohhhhh.  Yeah really oooohhhhh, maybe someone should pull their head out of their a** and realize people are spending a lot of time and energy, not to mention having large groups of people travel with them.

 

If you know of who we can complain to, please send along some contact info.

 

Last part of my vent, I have never seen so many brothers and sisters so jealous and selfish in my entire life. Going through something like this really shows you who your true Friends are!

Please consider another resort. Our wedding is March 25th and our coordinator quit and now we are 2 weeks away with absolutely nothing confirmed.

I would highly reccommend Now Sapphire. It is a smaller resort, so depending on the size of your group, may be a better fit. Much more luxurious, better choices, better service, etc. I am kicking myself now for not originally choosing it.

Three weeks, how exciting! I'm glad you're cast is coming off, just in time. Let me know how the bouquets go, I'm worried about how crafty I can be with mine..

I am sooo confused about photography and video   aaaahhhhhhhhhhh. I was under the impression that Smile Market was the Moon Palace photog and "moments that matter" was just a different package? I am also wondering if the CD you pay extra for is of just the pics they print (which Im guessing) and not the negatives off all the pics. And the video is an hour, which the ceremony is only 30 mins...so do they throw the same 36 or whatever pics in the sildeshow throughout.

Basically am I paying extra for all the same pics???

Hi Ladies,

 

I noticed some talk of photographers. Does anyone know what company/photog the resort uses so that I can perhaps see some of their work?

Also, is it a lot more expensive in total to bring in an outside photog? I am really skimping out on most elements of me wedding but I really want the pictures to be nice. I am hoping not to spend more than $1000 and I want a CD with pics on it and I don't care if they give me any actual pics.

 

Any advice or info would be awesome.

The Moon Palace Photographer is "Smile Market" I was contacted by Lupita Sanchez and she sent me the prices as of today (which they are very different than whats on the website) Soemeone previosly said the prices are going up in April. She sent me those too. I honestly didnt even open the attachment because I plan on booking them this week. Im still trying to look into the packages and extras right now.

Her email is wedding2@palaceresortphotos.com

 

She is very quick to resond and answer questions.

Smile Market is the in-house photographer.  They have some reviews on this website.  If you hire an outside photographer you will have to book them a room for 1 or 2 nights (people get different answers).  If you only want to spend $1000 I would book with Smile Market!

Shan..I talked to the photographer at MTM and he said that the most recent one he did at MP and the couple only got him and the assitant a day pass...so lets hope it works that way..less $$!!

    • Hello I am planning to get married at Jade Mountain in 2020 any new updates on weddings there or other St Lucia hotels and vendors appreciated 
    • Thanks for your good list.  I also love Marry Me and I'm Yours. 
    • I haven’t seen any recent info on wedding at the Now Amber PV. Has anyone had their wedding there recently? Any feedback etc. My daughter booked her wedding for 5/15/20 so any info would be greatly appreciated. 
    • Good list! I bet it got folks moving!
    • Hey fellow wedding planners. When me and my wife planned our wedding I started making playlists both for the reception and for the dance floor.  I wanted it to be more towards indie and alternative music and since I started sharing the playlists on Facebook and other social media I got so much appreciation I wanted to make them available to others planning their wedding. For the reception Will you marry me? Let's play this at our wedding - INDIE / FOLK / ALTERNATIVE For the dance floor I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor - Indie Party Anthems I also have a few other playlists that might be of interest for playing at a wedding It's all about JAZZ Fabulous Fingerpicking Folk (Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkle, Bright Eyes, Iron & Wine, Beatles etc) 88 Keys Of Magic - Contemporary Piano - Jazz / Neo Classical and More Fingers, Wood, Nylon and Steel - Contemporary Acoustic Guitar Instrumental Chill Out Gems Hope it can be of help or maybe just inspiration for your own wedding playlist! Let me know what you think!   Flag  Quote  Agree  Like
