Getting Married at Moon Palace SUGGESTIONS????

Recommended Posts

We are in the beginning stages of booking our wedding at the moon palace resort for August 23rd. So far I have the date and time reserved. I am soooo confused because the staff is Miami is extremely difficult to reach. Everyday I have new questions that arise. I am torn because we are given the $1500 credit. I booked the complementary package but I am not sure if I should have put this towards one of the other packages. We decided to do the destination wedding because we thought that it would be cheaper but I am now seeing that there are lots of hidden fees. How much do you think it would cost to have a decent pretty wedding with a decent reception after? They are asking for a number of rooms to reserve but I am not sure what to say because I have not yet sent out invitations. If someone has done this and I was trying to keep costs low please share your experience! Just wondering everyones thoughts and experiences. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum and congrats to you for nailing down a day.  I can't really tell you about hidden fees but I can tell you a little about the resort.  We shot a small wedding (alright a bride and groom and two boys) there last month.  It is a beautiful resort and the bride gets delivered in a white horse drawn carriage which is always breathtaking.  It is a quiet and romantic venue that lent itself well to an amazing day.  Feel free to contact us for photos of what will be awaiting you there.

 

Good luck with your planning.  Things can be tough at times with the resorts but it is all worth it once you are standing there on the beach saying your vows with the waves crashing in the background.

Welcome!  Try searching for the thread on that specific resort and hopefully some brides who were married there can help you out with answering your questions!  Good luck and happy planning:)

Welcome!

 

First off, don't worry! We have all been there at some point. The Miami office can be difficult to work with, but from what other brides have said, they really pull through and make it all beautiful on your big day. I find calling them seems to be the best method if you want a fast response.

 

As far as expenses...well that is entirely up to you. You can make it as affordable or as expensive as you want. I personally wouldn't use the resort credit towards a package. They are all so affordable that you could probably do that on your own...especially when they have you do it in installments. Save your credit for either the fun stuff or the extras you want. They seem to have changed what exactly you can use your credit for when it comes to wedding stuff though. 

 

If I were you, I would get a travel agent that can deal with all the resort stuff and booking. We found ours through this website. She has been so great and makes sure to get us the best deals. We just opened up a room block. We just figured we would start on the low end (10 rooms) since we don't know for sure how many people there will be. That way you can always ad more but not have to pay for rooms you might not need. 

 

Check out both of the Moon Palace forums:

Everyone will be very helpful in answering your questions. Be sure to read through the threads as I'm sure most of your questions have already been discussed! 

 

Good Luck and Happy Planning!

Welcome to the forum!  I have photographed a few weddings at that resort and the brides have been pleased.  I would ask for all the fees up front before you make your decision.   Maybe speak with a wedding coordinator at that resort and express your concerns.  

 

Good luck!!

Lori

    • Watches as a gift can never go wrong. Couple necklaces, or special jewelry can also be a great choice. 
    • As a wedding gift, necklaces are a good choice.
    • 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?  
    • Amazon it is a paradise for shopping. I always buy from this platform, especially when I look for a present. I've already set up Amazon Pro, for advanced buyers, and for free shipping, lol. In fact, I bought a lot of different products here. I like to make beautiful gifts, and packaging means a lot to me. I usually chose all the parts of the gift and then packed them at home by myself. But recently, at the wedding of my friend, I did not have time at all and I decided to look for a service that can help me. As a result, I came across a good website where you can buy different gift baskets. jetgiftbaskets.com I bought her a Wedding Wishes gift basket, and she was very happy. This service has excellent service, as good as amazon has.
