Frustrated Bride - Moon Palace

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm getting married on June 5, 2011 at the Moon Palace.  Everything up to this point was running smoothly.... until this past Monday (3/21/11) I found out from the photo department at the resort that they are NO LONGER using the 1500 promotion (resort credits) for the photography.  I was told "not to worry, the new pricing comes out March 26, 2011 and will be cheaper.  WHAT since when is cheaper better than FREE.  I wanted to do the Superior photo package for $1250.00 and use my credits.  Now we have to pay out of pocket.  I was not expecting to do this and certainly not two months before my wedding.  At first I thought I just had to book before the 25th, but NOPE you have to get married before then.  Oh and why didn't the WC tell me that when I inquired about using the credits for our photography....I'm so frustrated!!!!!!!

Eskie, Wow! This is a brand new issue with Palace Resorts. They are always changing the rules to make sure people can't take advantage of the full $1500. We were planning on using part of our resort dollars to get the video. We just got an email from the photography department this week, but since our friends will be taking professional photos I never replied. I will send a message now. We are less than a month away, so we would be in an even more desperate situation.

Okay, so I got a message back today from Palace photography. I was told that the promo dollars ended March 25. It does not look like any prices changed that much. I will post the prices on the Moon Palace wiki. I think I am going to try to fight it because the palace promo is still posted on their website and there is no mention of an expiry date.

Hi Everyone,

 

I looked today as well for the new pricing and saw that it is still showing the old prices along with the $ symbol for promos.  I contacted the photo department again and was told "yes, I noticed it and reported it to the operations manager".  I replied with this is ridiculous and I'm very annoyed at how you are running a business.  I also asked for the managers phone number.  I then contacted my WC Val Vera and said the same thing.  We'll see what I get back.  GRRRRRRR

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
