Does anyone know when we can start to book a 2013 wedding at the Moon Palace?

 

Also... how much do you have to put down to book the wedding? I am planning on doing the complimentary package =)

 

And who do I contact to book the wedding? Im so confused!!

I'm no expert on Moon Palace and quite honestly dont know anything about that resort but just some suggestions.  I would try to get a hold of the wedding coordinator at the resort.  Thats where we started, we were able to get a list of available dates.  That helped us narrow down the exact date we chose and the week we would travel.  Try finding the moon palace thread on here and see if someone has the wedding coordinator email address!  Happy planning:)

I went to moon palace 2 years ago and as far as I'm concerned it's the only resort to go to!  We loved it!  My daughter is getting married there this march!  This is what we did:  I went on to a travel website (sorry I don't remember what one)  moon palace has members that buy certain "vacation days" if you will.  So I asked on the website if there were any members willing to sell any of their days.  I got a bunch of replies and thankfully the lady we went with had done this the year before for her friends daughters wedding.  We got a MUCH cheaper deal than if we just booked with the resort.  Members have discounted prices and alot of perks that she was able to pass on to us!  She has been wonderful to deal with!  There is also another website called cancunpal.com that is a member who will give you discounted rates under her membership.  We are so excited for the wedding!  We have about 42 people going and the bride and groom for 8 days and 7 nights!  Good luck and let me know if I can be of any help!!!

I booked a August 2012 wedding and i just sent an email via the palace resorts wedding site.  They got right back to me and sent me the paperwork.  I believe it is a $300 dollar deposit required.

We are getting married at the Moon Palace in April of 2013! I've done a lot of research about the Moon Palace so hopefully I can help a bit.  First, let me start by saying we've stayed at the Beach Palace in Cancun and at the Vallarta Palace in Puerto Vallarta (actually got engaged there!) and we LOVE LOVE LOVE the Palace Resorts! However, based on the comments on here and from travel agents I've talked to, booking a wedding through them can be challenging until you actually arrive the week of your wedding.  I would strongly recommend working with a travel agent to help you negotiate with the Moon Palace.  I don't belive they have technically released pricing information for 2013, however the three different travel agents I've talked to got the Moon Palace to commit to 2012 pricing, which is good because historically there is always a price increase from year to year.  I'm working with two travel agents right now to see who can get the best deal. Right now it's about $360/couple/night.  I'm trying to get them to promise the 1500 resort credit promotion because it is AWESOME (one of the best perks of the Palace Resorts and I think a def. justification to guests for paying a bit more than some other all-inclusives) but is set to expire April of this year. Am also trying to negotiate "kids stay free" and airport transfers...I tend to be pretty aggressive with negotiating if you haven't noticed!

 

Anyways, I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions and I'll tell you what I know.  I'm pretty much on this website every day, but you can always private message me.  Congrats!!!

The earlier the better I say!  I'm getting married this September and we probably started contacting people around July of last year.  I want to make sure I am not overly stressed with anything last minute as the date approaches!!

 

Good luck and happy planning!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good  I enjoyed my stay at both, but personally I liked the ambiance better at Dreams La Romana.  In the past 10 years or so Destination weddings have become very popular and the resorts do 100's each year. 60 guests with approx 30 rooms or so is a great group, but when the resorts have 500+ rooms they do not look at it as a large group. Most resorts are pretty set when it comes to what they offer in their wedding packages, but some may do an upgrade for the bride & groom if it's available. The benefit of doing a group block is you have the opportunity to earn group amenities based on the number of guests & rooms that book at the resort.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
