    I hope this makes sense.  If you have any other questions you can PM me.

      Just to add to the document discussion, the only time you will need your birth certificate is if you have been previously married and divorced. Then there are a whole bunch more hoops to jump through.

It is quite secluded though.  Either location is beautiful for a ceremony and both are private (Playa Azul being a little more private).  We chose Coral Beach because of the palm trees (it was more sheltered)  and the gorgeous scenic background.  And we wanted to have part of our wedding near the Palace.  It was nice to have 2 different locations for the ceremony and the reception.  It made for a variety of backgrounds for pictures. I wouldn't change a thing!

            Ok great to know, I was under the impression that we had to have our original  birth certificates for the symbolic ceremony....(so that only applies to people who have been married before?)   also I have heard along the way... our witnesses cannot be family is that true? or am I thinking of another country.....I've been researching all over so I may have gotten a few things confused... thanks for the info ladies!!!

              Claudia told me your witnesses can be anyone over the age of 18 and can be family, so I have my sister and brother in law and my FI's mom

                  Victoria also confirmed with me that anybody can be a witness including family. We have our 2 BM's husbands and then FI's brother and sister as ours :o)

                   

                  Joanne I know its gone SO fast. I've been on this forum for a couple of yr's now and i'm only a couple of months away from becoming a MRS!! :o) How's your planning going? Did your family from over here sort out their flights etc?

                    Hi Mexico_2011,

                     

                    Thanks for the wonderful review.  I'm getting married at the Barcelo Maya Palace on December 1, 2011.  Its very comforting to read all the wonderful reviews.  You put in your review that you used an Ipod.  Which version did you use (Touch, Nano)?  Claudia is not sure which Ipods work.  She knows that the Nano works, but we have a Touch.  Thanks so much for your help!!

                      When we were there we were able to use our Iphones and ipad with the equiptment, so I am sure an I pod touch would work.
