    Thanks girls!

     

    I think if you book the Palmerus, you get your choice (we had to pick between the grill and the beach at least 4 hours a head of time), once you pick it - they're both yours though!  That was another awesome part of Palmerus - if you booked the beach, the grill was the back up.

     

    Mariachi Grill I think looks very similar to the Palmerus - it's further down by the Playa Azul.  Maybe you could see about having the ceremony there?   I honestly didn't really check it out.  I think they make the grills look pretty nice though, whichever one you get.

     

    The only one you normally can't get, is the Coral Grill.  For one its HUGE, you would need a big wedding to make it look decent.  It's also the Japanese restaurant most nights.

      Norma charged us $70 for bridesmaid hair and $60 for bridesmaid make up, and $250 for my hair and make up.  Because no one else in my party wanted to get their make-up done she charged an additional $100 because she does have to take the day off of work and travel to get to you.  The only downside is that does not include a "trial" of hair/makeup, so I was trusting it would just work out.  She did a phenomenal job, i didn't have a picture or anything of what i wanted, just kind of told her soft with bright eyes, and it turned out absolutely perfect! Plus, we never did get charged the 30% for using outside vendors.  Her email is nor_maccancun@hotmail.com.

        Hey Ladies and Gents,

         

        I was just wondering if any of you all had booked through Barcelo website and if so did they have any problems at the desk? I just read about the desk completely loosing reservations and trying to turn people away that had reservation confirmation numbers and EVERYTHING! I have had many guests book though their site and I am a nervous wreck now!! I'm hoping this was just a rare fluke and not a regular occurrence. I'm guessing I just need to make sure everyone brings all documentation of confirmation and so forth but UGH.....I'd hate for anyone to start off their vacation with a sour taste in their mouth.

          Hey girls!

          What flavor would you say was the best for cake? (vanilla, chocolate, pineapple, coconut, strawberry)

          Working with my wedding cordinator picking out stuff for our package we are going with.  Also what instrument  did you think sounded best between the flute, saxophone, keyboard, or violin?

           

          Thanks!
          Kelsey

            Hello,

             

            I have a question for everyone. We are getting married in October and I am trying to put together a scavenger hunt for my guests to get to know one another and to get some of the people moving that really don't like the beach and drinking thing. I have been to Barcelo in the past but I have hit a wall and can't think of anything else to put on my list: (please give me any extra ideas that come to mind)

             

            1. a photo of an angel

            2. Build a sandcastle

            3. Pic of taking a shot with a stranger

            4. Pic of Mexican Flag

            5. Pic of Man in speedo (2 bonus points if you are in the picture with him)

            6. A pic with a Mayan god

            7. Pic of you on the water bike 

             

             

            I would like to come up with a bunch more things......I know Barcelo is busy and there are plenty of things to do but we thought this may be a fun thing to do maybe boys vs: girls!!!  We welcome all ideas!! Thanks!!!

                We bought a sand ceremony frame rather than vase as we thought it would be easier to transport after the ceremony.  It is engraved with our names and wedding date.  Everyone loved it and thought it was unique.  None of our guests had heard of a sand ceremony and thought it was a great idea.

                  We had the violinist for our ceremony.  She was amazing!  We walked down the aisle to traditional music (Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring and Canon in D) and our processional was rather untraditional - All You Need is Love by the Beatles.  She did all genres of music very well.  As for cake, we chose the pineapple flavor.  It was delicious but I only had a couple of bites as I was so full after all of those courses!

                    I booked the photographer through the website and he had no problems. One of our guests did to, also no problems!

                    Strawberry had chunks of strawberries, so yummy.  The coconut was so creamy and yummy. Both were great.  We also used the violin and she was great.

                      Does anyone know that with the special premium arm band you receive with your wedding package if you get free room service?
