Hay we booked through a travel consultant who has direct links with moon palace and air plane companies.
we are flying with Bitish airways although flight details are not yet availble we will get them later.
we got our date within a week confirmed and also got the time, however we dont have a location so not sure how that works if other weddings if we already have our time.
yes we are getting the hotel credits and have been told we can use these towards upgrading parts of the wedding if we wanted which i think is fab,saves money. and i think our guests are too.
we have approx 30 guests going so will have about 15-20 rooms most guests are staying for 1-2 weeks. what is this about, the cocktail hour and recption!!!
we going for two weeks and getting married on 26th which is our ten year annivasrary so really pleased we got that date, our travel consultnt said, because we booking so far in advance she couldnt see a prob with getting the date, so fingers crossed you will all get the date you wanted.
planning, not so much, im goning to start wedding dress shopping in aug, and planning our party for when we get back. i havnt done any thing else yet. so not sure where to start, what we need and thing slike colour schemes etc.
pip, great to have some support from you guys and say to help one another out, like i say i dont know where to stat organising or what i need lol.
my email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to email me.

A lot of reviews said to book direct to get get the date confirmed quicker, wish we had done that so we'd know already,
The reception and cocktail hour is free if you have 75 room nights booked and it sound like you'll have lots more than that with around 30 guests. It also says about getting 7 nights stay free with that number of nights but when we asked thomas cook about it they said they will probably deduct that from any extras we choose for the wedding package, so cant wait to get a confirmed date because we will then just email the hotel weddings department and see if we get more help there.
Thomas cook don't want to commit themselves to anything we ask!!
If you go on the 'palace resorts' website and click on group amenities it says there the things that will be complimentary with the amount of room nights you have booked.
Thomas cook have told us we will be entitled to it if thats what they are offering at the time, they also said that we can contact the wedding coordinators before we travel and discuss things with them about what the hotel are offering.

Do you think that applies if you book all the rooms at the same time, we have just booked our 14 nights and flights, and our guests are gonna book theres when they can.
just spoke to our travel consultant, who said weddings are normally held on the beach however there are gardens if you choose. she said everything is delt with you you getto moon palace as a lot of time they had people chnage thee mind when they got there so everything had to be changed, now they just do it all in one go.
she says she has sent us this wedding pack, so am hoping that wil be useful. i will letyou know whats inside x

We got sent a form from Thomas Cook a few days after we booked from the moon palace. I emailed last week to find out when I would receive a response and was told that they were following up the following day. Still no date or wedding pack The lady in groups who organised our booking is on hols until this week so I will send off another email and see what i get back!! I wish we had booked direct with the hotel now.
I think with regards to the free functions; you may have to book most of the rooms together, I am speaking to a lady who booked her hotel (Beach Palace) through teletext and her group are booking seperately, if i remember right palace resorts said she didnt have a wedding contract so it couldnt be done (dont know what that means).
Dondon84 are you travelling from gatwick on the 2nd October, if so we will be on the same plane
I've started a bit of planning with regards to any extras I may want for the wedding but the costs are only approxs on the palace site. I do have an email copy of the wedding brochure; if any of you guys would like a copy pm with your email and i will send it across for you xx
