      Welcome!

       

      My FI and I are getting married Feb. 14th at Moon Palace! We are super excited and have heard really good things! They also have a bunch of group booking perks that can get you free nights and events if you get so many room nights/rooms booked. I am crossing my fingers we get to the 75+ room nights booked so we can get unlimited private events and 7 nights free!

          Be careful. They don't let any outside vendors in case you wanted to bring your own photographer, etc.

              Congrats to you too, thanks for the info! We arrive at the resort on the 7th! I am so excited I cannot wait. I have heard he is a great resource down there as well. I will take you advice though and check out his work!

                Perhaps it varies from Palace to Palace. I cancelled my reservation with Isla Mujeres Palace because of this restriction.

                  No it hasn't changed...people are just being creative at getting around it. I am going to use Del Sol for our photography, and from what they said is that they have a good working relationship with Palace. Exceptions will be made, but sometimes there are fees involved. We are also going to use an outside florist...he usually delivers the flowers to you as "a present from someone back home", and all the brides that have done that seem to get away with it completely.

                    Oh that is awesome because I planned on using Del Sol as well, so I am happy to hear that! Who are you using for your florist? and why did u choose an outside florist? is it really much cheaper? sorry for all of the questions :)

                      I think I am MOST excited about working with the Del Sol team! Melissa and Matt have been so sweet and helpful throughout this entire process....I can say they have been the most accomodating and least stressful part of this planning. You can't go wrong with such amazing photographers! We will have Juan Jose for our wedding and Matt for our TTD. I can't WAIT!!!

                       

                      We are going to use Marvin from Diseno Floral. YES he is waaaaaay cheaper! The resort flowers are rediculous! A BM bouquet will run you $70-$100 and a corsage/bout will be $30+

                      Not only that, but I can't say I'm very impressed with their quality of arrangements...kind of ugly and out dated. The pictures Marvin sent me were pretty much exactly what I was looking for!

                       

                      No worries on questions. That is what this whole forum is about! :)
