    So they serve premium liquor at the reception? I had thought that if you were staying at the palace it was all premium liquor, but it seems like you have to have the prem wristband, is that right? I guess I want to make sure it will be premium for the reception. Let me know if anyone knows... Thanks!!!!

      The cake is pretty awful. Especially if you're having a beach reception. By the time we got to cut it the humidity had done a number on the fondant. It was sort of wet and slimy?

       

      We cut the cake and we just had them take it away. We had 71 people so we bought the extra tier. Looking back the dessert they serve with the dinner is what everyone eats. Once dinner was finished everyone wanted to dance in the sand, not sit down for another piece of cake.

        What Dan said - if you have something specific you want, send them a picture and get the price. I picked my centrepieces before, but picked the actual flowers in them, and bouquet at the meeting.

        Thanks!!

         

         

        Our cake was amazing!! If you read my review, you'll see that the humidity and refridgerator killed my butterflies, but the cake itself was delicious.  We were only 30 people, and we ate at least half of the two tier cake.  We had Coconut and Strawberry, both were really good!  Our icing was buttercream, not fondant, and it held up well. Maybe that is something to request?

                This is our website -

                I was wondering if any of the past brides would like to share their wedding websites? or any templates they have on barcelo? I want to make a newsletter  and I could use some ideas. Thanks so much.

                  We took all our table decor with us. For name tags we used starfish we got at The Christmas Tree Shop and added name tags to them.

                  We ordered maracas online but you can also buy them everywhere down there. We got yellow ones that had "Mexico" painted on to them, and attached a tag with a verse, and when everyone shaked the maracas we had to kiss.

                  We also took all the yellow candle holders down there with us, along with our DIY menus and mint matchbooks.

                    With 30 guests, the only reason you will want an extra layer is for photographs. It will not get eaten!

                    The dessert with dinner was great, everyone loved it, and between the big meal, dancing and drinking, no one was interested in wedding cake.

                    We did 2 layers, one strawberry and one choclate and for those who tasted it they said it was great.

                    Our cake was not nought out and put on display until near the end of dinner. They had the cake table all set up in advance.

                      Thanks, can you share any quotes you added on to the maracas.  We get married in 150 days!  So much to do.....
