You are welcome!! I can't believe it's been 6 months since we were married but the day was perfect!! Aside from having my hair re-done 3 times (due to the language barrier and miscommunication) everything went perfectly! You can't imagine how great you will be treated once you get there- they want you to have everything you've ever imagined!! We are hoping to return to MP in November for our anniversary since we didn't really get to enjoy the resort as we were busy doing wedding stuff all week.  We arrived on Monday, I had my bachelorette party on Wed (also when the majority of our guests arrived) and we met with our WC on Tuesday, TTD session and rehersal/welcome dinner on Thursday, wedding on Friday and then we had Sat and Sun to relax and then we left on Monday.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions!! :)

    It was busy but fun!! All of our guests keep asking when we are going back!! :)

     

    I actually got married at Sun Palace! But we had our rehersal dinner on the verando terrace by the grand side and it was great- very quiet and secluded over there! :)  I saw plenty of weddings at MP while we were there- our room was right next to the catholic chapel and the beach locations! :)

     

    My wedding was at 4pm, cocktail hour at 5 and reception from 6-10. 

     

    Do you have your locations picked out?

      Hi- here is the bouquet included in the complimentary package- I did not end up using as I had Marvin make my flowers- so it was my back-up bouquet just in case!! But they were pretty and simple and also the bout for my husband that was also included.

      Shanna do you think all the complimentary bouquets are this color? Or do they try to match the colors of the wedding? I've made 2 bouquets for my brides maids and I still have my matron of honors left to make, but with having a week and a half or so left til we leave I'm thinking why don't I save myself the headache and stress and let my sister (my matron of honor) use the one moon palace gives me because I made mine already. In our final PO it did say white, pink or red flowers will be used, but then next to it it says purple flowers and coral ribbon or vise versa. -Vanessa

      Hey vanessa!!

       

      They are whatever color you want them to be.  I asked my WC if it could be any color other than red, white or pink and she asked what color I wanted:  if you told them and it's on your PO you should be fine- here is what mine said and they will confirm it at your meeting!! :)

          I have 10 days til we get on a plane headed for, what I'm praying, is one of the best weeks of my life (our life). We went yesterday morning to apply for our marriage license- so we can cross that off our extremely long list of "things to do before we leave for cancun." We are planning to get married by the Justice of the Peace next Friday before we leave for cancun!!! I just finished putting one of my OOT bags together just to see what it would look like. And ladies let me tell you, seeing the bag all put together made me not only excited to give them to my family and friends but it made me proud of myself! I would NOT label myself "creative or crafty" but after seeing the finished product.... I feel like Martha freaking Stewart! It makes me feel good, that for once I didn't wait til the last minute to start on a project. When deciding what gifts I would be giving my guests, I immediately told my fianc©, "I want to pull an Oprah!" Of course he said, " what do you mean?" I in turn stated "we are flying everyone to cancun on the jet I never told you I have!" Not! I told him I wanted to make gift bags with some of my favorite things/products but on a budget! So a little under a year ago I started purchasing products for my vision. I am quite happy with the outcome. I'm still waiting on vinyl decals in the shape of a heart with our initials to place on the glass container of the scented oils i had made to smell similar to my favorite perfumes. I wanted to share pictures of the bags and the items i will be placing in the bags, however I'm having trouble uploading the pictures from my iPad, so I will put them in my photo album. I found a lot of good sellers on etsy. I recommend every single seller I ordered from. There was not one that I had a bad experience with. Every single store was super helpful and quick to send items!! I absolutely love Etsy.com!!! Good luck ladies!!!!

            Thanks Shanna, it's starting to set in- the excitement! I can't wait now. Last week I was stressed, wishing I could freeze time to get stuff done. Right at this moment I want next week to get here already to start the fun and memories. Thanks for all you advice. I think I will want to go back too next summer. :)

            If you are anything like me you will be incredibly stressed the night before you leave..my husband hadn't packed- his suitcase broke as we zipped it up so we had to borrow one from a friend who lucikly had an extra...and when we left I initally forgot my wedding dress- but hadn't left the subdivison so it was okay.  Then we get to the airport and I realize that my luggage isn't there (neither my suitcase of clothes nor the suitcase full of wedding stuff) and burst into tears in the middle of the crowded airport.  We had carpooled and my luggage that I left in the middle of the living room the night before at my inlaws house was not grabbed.  So thankfully my husband's grandpa was able to make it with our luggage with 2 minutes to spare before the cutoff to check our bags....after that it was smooth sailing... it's funny now but OMG I almost died (the luggage would have came 2 days later with the rest of our guests but I would have had NOTHING to wear and would have had to postpone our meeting with the WC!). 

             

            So if you have any bumps in the road..just remember it will all work out! I forgot all about the suitcase incident the moment we arrived at MP lol. 

            I can't wait to see pics!! :)
