Hello ,

 

So far I have sent out save the dates. Which I sent out 14 months ahead of the day. I wanted to give people a lot of time to save. However a lot of the information other than the date has been changed (locations, date prices will be available) . I guess thats what I get for sending them out so early.

 

I bought my dress from davids bridal this month, so one year in advance.

 

I am in the works of booking my photographer and videographer.

 

I am looking into what it will cost to use there ipod and speaker set. However, I may just buy a bose ipod dock and use an iphone or Ipod to save money.

 

I am also having an at home recepetion so I think I am going to buy my own linens, centerpieces, and decorations!!

 

 

My next step is to get formal invitations when I get the airfare prices.. I am patiently waiting

Hello Well actually I've been assigned a wedding coordinator, but unfortunately she's already gone! And they told me they will contact me 90 days before the wedding. I also signed up for wedding destinations.com and they are helping me as well. Hope this helps but I feel your frustrations the communication is not good. Michelle

How far in advance do you think you will send out your invites? I am also patiently waiting for flights to come out as well! I think people will actually want to book when the flights come out instead of booking the room now and then the flight later.

 

I remember reading that its only like $250 to rent their ipod and speakers... And im pretty sure they also have someone there to help control it as well. Alot of my guests are saying that they would love to help out and MC the wedding so I may just go that route!

Hi All -- 

 

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 quite a bit 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).

 

Our save the dates are sent out (I am using Paperless Post since we have guests coming, literally, from across the globe. Postage would have been INSANE) and we have a wedding website up with information for our guests. Our guests are booking through my in-laws' Palace Membership, so we aren't using a travel agent or anything like that. I plan to send a formal invitation later this fall, even though most of our guests have already indicated their interest in attending. My wedding dress was ordered last month and I'm now working on emailing our attendants about wardrobe. Since so many decisions can't be made until closer to our wedding date, I want to get all of the things I *can* manage under control. I am sure a lot of you brides feel the same way.

 

Looking forward to sharing information and helpful hints, particularly about pricing for cake, flowers, etc... 

 

Happy planning everyone!

 Wow you are going to have a great turnout for your wedding!! Im jealous! I think we will only get about 30-40 people! I am pretty much in the same boat as you right now... Save the Dates went out and I purchased my dress now im just waiting for it to get a little closer to start planning everything else! Im currently working on invitations right now with a seller on Etsy so I can have them ready to send out when the time is right!

 

Im excited to share planning tips as well! Im sure were going to have a MILLION questions for eachother once it gets closer!!

Congrats to all the 2013 brides- be sure to check out the MP 2012 brides thread- there is a TON of information on it.  Hopefully commincation will be better for all of you with the changing the wedding dept from Miami to Cancun.  Right now it is terrible as no one in Cancun knows anything, but I think after about 6 months in business you all will be fine! :)

Hi,

 

I am also a Moon Palace bride from the UK and your wedding date of the 8th October is the day i fly out to Cancun :)

I have just had my weddings pack through from the travel agent and my wedding date is the 16th October - one week after your wedding! so excited now :)

 

Do you know how the 'Cocktail reception' or 'private functions' work yet? i am very confused about there options..... also on the website is says if you go as a group (which we are - are you?) and stay X amount of nights, you get so much included in your wedding such as the cocktail reception and private function. Do you know any thing more about this?

 

I feel i have been told the basics but all the important details haven't been explained all that well so feel a bit up in the air about it. 

 

Hope your enjoying all the planning involved for your special day.

    • i was 100% happy with my cake! it was the most amazing cake and when i travel down again i will be requesting a smaller size cake than the one she made me for my 25th anniversary renewal.  I did everything by FB messanger and Paypal! she is on point with her cakes and running her business! I give her 5 Stars and then some! Thank you for making my day amazing!
    • Did you have to contact photo editing services?
    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
