Info on Moon Palace:

I can tell you that the prices that I have gotten this far are about 240-300 per person per night (including airfare) . However, because I am still a year out airfare prices have not come in yet and it is hard to get any exact numbers. You usually have to wait 10 months before the date.

 

Photography can run you anywhere from $500-2500 depending on what you want. On average if you get a normal package its about 1500. Smile Market is the photography that Moon used . ( you can choose other but have to pay fees)

 

The wedding coordinator are usally free. Also at the Moon Palace if you get 75 nights booked (add up all the nights you and your party will stay) you get unlimited free private funtions (max 3 hours per day). You will also get up to 1500 free resort credits for a 7 night stay which can be used towards there new wedding collections or many other things such as spa, golf, or upgrading your room.

Hope this helps some.

Hi Mary,

 

I am a crazy researcher and planner and I found Mexico the best price and Moon Palace the best bang for your buck. If you are going to have that many guests you can get a free wedding ($300 blood tests aren't included and you have to pay that), a free 7 night stay, and free unlimited functions. We are having a welcome dinner, a reception (with cocktail hour), and a rehearsal dinner all complimentary.

Also, they do have decor packages you can buy but I found them outrageously expensive so I am using the resort approved Deco Cancun and found their prices very reasonable.

We will be paying about $900 for our photographer, $1200 for our DJ (resort approved company), and $1200 for decor. So it is by no means free but I found Moon Palace had more reasonable prices than other resorts that were smaller, less luxurious, and charged for every little function you wanted to have.

 

I believe you can bring in outside vendors for decor and photog and DJ but they seemed more expensive than the resort approved ones and you may have to pay a fee to bring in the outside vendor.

 

When it all comes down to it you are paying far less than someone who gets married in a traditional way and you get a week of fun with family. Win-Win.

Hope this helps a little.

I am getting married in April 2013 so we were just able to see airfare prices in May. When we were first looking in May they were outrageous ($800-900) but all of the sudden this week they plummeted and are now around $500 a person. So no one freak out if the 333 days comes around and you can see the flight prices and they are insane. I think they just like to give us destination brides a scare ; )

Hey Charlene,

 

They just overhauled their whole wedding department, thank goodness. They used to have a main Miami office that you dealt with that was supposed to relay all details booked to the resort in Cancun. Well this seemed to be a huge issue and last month they got rid of that structure and you now deal with a Cancun office.

 

I think they are currently dealing with the chaos this creates and trying to deal with weddings that are in the next couple months and in the Fall so I would say keep trying and be patient and they will get back to you. If it makes you feel any better I am getting married in April and I have just locked in my locations and I think I am way too early on that one but I just want to know for certain I get what I want.

 

I would also highly recommend you get a travel agent. I get treated very well and get very fast responses because my travel agent is on the ball and amazing. This seems to help me a great deal.

 

Happy Planning : )

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
