My fiance and I are currently trying to organize our wedding at moon palace for September 2013.Did you have any trouble booking your dates?did you email them,and if so what was the website, or did you phone them and was it difficult to organize?I notice your from the UK like myself which is why any help you maybe able to give us would be really appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi Nicola,

 

It was not difficult at all when I wanted to book my date, however email everything in writting  because when I signed apparently they told me one thing and then when I went to sign it was another thing.  Moon Palace I guess is in the mist of changes and I was unaware of it so there was a lot of miscomunication. 

 

I called at first to talk to a wedding coordinator and we also communicated via email.  I am having approx.  50 guest or so.  The wedding planner does not contact you until about 3 months before the wedding b/c they are pretty busy with other brides. 

 

I would choose the plan that cost the least which is the complimentry package so you do not have to put down any money, therefore you are not committed to anything and then when you decide then put down the money.  They do not give refunds very easily.

 

I heard their in house photographer is not that great and I am really big on photography.  I am on a budget but I do  not want to compromise my pictures therefore it is taking me longer to look for a photographer and videographer.

 

I hope this helps. I will continue to post.  Happy planning!

 

Mary

Hey, this goes out to all the brides who have already married at the MP.

 

Can you please tell me how many songs i need whilst the guests are waiting, the bride walking down the isle, for after the ceremony, etc?

 

Once the ceremony is over, the cocktail hour will follow. Do you supply your own music whilst the guests have drinks and chat? I assume my fiance and i will be whisked off for photos so dont want to leave my guests in silence. 

 

Any help or advice would be greatly received.

I am a Moon Palace April 2013 bride. Have been stalking the 2012 forum for information over the last few months, but have found Palace has changed some things up for 2013 weddings. I was previously working with Geraldine and am now assigned to Ricardo, who has been much more prompt with his responses. We are expecting roughly 125-145 for our wedding with most guests staying a week. We will have a Catholic ceremony, followed by a cocktail hour and then our reception in one of the ballrooms (hopefully Star in the Sunrise section). Looking forward to sharing information, particularly about pricing for cake, flowers, etc... 

 

Happy planning everyone!

Do you know who took over Ricardo's spot? I found out thru one of my guests trying to make a reservation that Ricardo no longer works there. We were told to contact Mayra- however she is hard to get ahold of and has yet to return our messages. I'm getting frustrated!!

Hello. I am getting married at the Moon Palace on the 25th April 2013. I am getting rather nervous and anxious about the actual organisation of the day. I was naive in thinking that we could just turn up an organise all in resort. I am now trying to organise lighting for the terrace where we are having the reception - happy days!

Hi again ladystardust - we are having reception on bugabilas Terrace - that isn't spelt right! Extra lighting was suggested. Was shocked, shocked at prices too. Cost we didn't expect but have little choice unless give the guests torches - ha - classy! Are you having an evening reception outdoors?

Tucan was our first choice, and bungalimias our second, however second choice confirmed. Happy though. Chose to go with Lily and Zuniga, she sent us much more information and was more welcoming than the other vendor. We have confirmed all with her. We are having a pale pink theme costing 800 plus usd for simple lighting and decoration to two tables - ouch. Hope it is lovely. Have you got the 100 pages plus catalogue from Lily?

    • 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 for Kids.  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    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
