I will be travelling from Scotland and booking my hotel through a travel agents therefore a group contract will be honoured. However i will be booking my wedding direct with Moon palace (because travel agent will not honour $1500 to be taken off the wedding package!) As there will be more than 75 room nights booked we would be honoured 7 complimentary nights, unlimited private functions and room upgrade for bride and groom.
Can anyone confirm when holding civil ceremony and using either exotic package or pure package is there a charge for more than 30 guests? If so, what is the charge per person?
Can anyone confirm if when holding a cocktail hour, food AND a bar will be provided for the guests? Would this be free of charge because of the unlimited private functions? How many hours does this last with unlimited private functions?
Also to have dinner in a restaurant would this be the where the themed reception decor tables would be used? What are the dinner options when using unlimited private functions for your wedding meal? Is this a sit down plated meal or is this a buffet? Would there be an extra charge per person for sit down meal or buffet meal if there are over 30 guests? Or would there be no extra charge due to use of unlimited private function? Are all drinks free of charge for guests with the use of their all inclusive bands? Would this be in a private area and be free of charge because of the unlimited private functions? If we wanted, could be have an outside location, which would also be free of charge because unlimited private functions? How many hours does this last with unlimited private functions?
To hold a reception somewhere private or semi private to play our own music and dance and also for guests to a use a bar free of charge with their all inclusive bands. Would this be free of charge because of the unlimited private functions? Would this be where the reception decor tables would be used? If there are more than 30 guests would there be an extra charge per person? Or would this be free for over 30 guests due to the use of unlimited private functions? How many hours does this last with unlimited private functions?
Sorry to write a novel ladies!! I have looked back over through the pages of this forum. I think what I'm asking is correct?! However if anyone could help me that would be great!!

Have you tried to talk to wedding sales? I found that when I asked my questions and listed them out in numbers they would answer each question you have. I can try and answer your questions as best as I can as I had pretty much the same questions that you did.
If you have 75 room nights booked, you have unlimited private functions (for 2 or 3 hours (information seems to be inconsistent). I don't know how much more each hour will cost), a free cocktail hour and room upgrade and so on.
If you decide to have your reception in one of the restaurants, I believe they block off a part of the restauarant for your party but do not reserve the entire restaurant for you. (This MIGHT not be correct as I had enquired at other resorts and may be mixing up my information). You also have other areas that you may have your reception. For instance on the beach, terrace or I think now there is a rooftop available? I believe the beach and rooftop are extra charge.
For the wedding packages, this includes the decorations and everything listed in their package. You will just need to pay for extra chairs. I was told it is $6 per chair. If you decide to purchase the package tables available, you will be paying $300 per table. 2 tables are included if you go with the pure package. each table seats 8 people, so you can plan out how many tables you'll need based on the number of guests. (40 people = 5 tables at $300 each). If you choose not to go with the package tables, you will receive round tables with white linen, white napkins and white chairs. (You can add decorations and such at extra costs)
If you have unlimited private functions, I was told that 3 hours of alcohol were included. It will be an extra $80/hour per table.
Food options are buffet or plated, your wedding coordinator should be able to provide you the menus for these. If you are outdoor, buffet option applies but if you want a plated option, it is $30/person. Then there are upgrade options available. For instance if you want to add lobster or filet mignon, there will be an extra charge. And upgraded cocktail hors d'oeuvres available at extra charge as well. If you deicde to go with plated, all the plated food will be the same for every guest.
For your ceremony, you have the option of the beach or gazebo? I'm not too sure of this because I knew i wanted my ceremony to be on the beach, so I didn't inquire about other options.
This is what I got so far from speaking with wedding sales, who knows how it'll be when the wedding actually happens. Just keep in mind there will ALWAYS be hidden costs/fees that you will not anticipate. Hope this helped! Goodluck planning
