    Has anyone done a sand unity ceremony ? I want to do one but I worry about getting it home. I don't want it to get all shaken up or lose the pattern formed.

    Any tips...also any other suggestions other then the sand or candle ideas?

      hi! thanks for the advice! I liked the idea of sending separate emails about different topics. I am more calm now since the planner told me that they already have my date "reserved" I am just looking at another option (hotel) and soon me and my fiance will decide if we marry at Barcelo or not...

          What package are you ladies choosing and what made that one more appealing ? Trying to decide on going with a smaller package and topping up on the extras that matter more to us like food and music . We are probably only having 40 guests . Thanks for the replys

            At coral beach there are no chances of having a fat man in a speedo in your pictures! Lol! It's up on some rocks and has beautiful trees/shrubs in the background, it is hard to explain but basically doesn't have direct access into the water but the water is in the background. Playa Azul is a big flat beach area, beautiful still, but different, more space for people to watch or swim in the water behind the ceremony. Good luck choosing!

              We had our ceremony at playa Azul and our reception at Coral Beach. Playa Azul is the furthest from the busy part of the resort, and you and your guests are transported there via trolley style golf cart. I have been in 2 weddings at that beach(including my own) and there was no one in te water behind the ceremony either time. There are no beach chairs near it so it doesn't get as much tourist traffic. Coral beach is directly in front of the coral grill which is one of the buffets where everyone at the resort eats. There is a lot of foot traffic there as everyone has to walk by it to get to lunch or dinner. You will likely have the coral grill in the pictures of you walking down the aisle but the shots facing the other direction will be gorgeous. It was very important to me that there weren't resort buildings in the background of my ceremony pictures so I chose Playa Azul. There are benefits to both though, so it really depends on what is important to you. In my opinion, playa Azul is the more secluded beach though and I can send you pictures of both.

                Actually, here is a great example of what I mean. The first 2 pix are our ceremony at Playa Azul and the last 2 are of our reception at Coral Beach Http://photobucket.com/Jndwedding

                  I take that ack. It looks like photobucket swapped the order but I think you'll figure that out.

                    does anyone know what location the reception was at?

                    beautiful pictures especially love the detailed pictures ! What is a average price point for a package similar to this ?

                      Hey ladies! We are getting married in just a few weeks at the Barcelo and trying to figure out for sure what works for playing our own music at our dinner/reception that will be in doors. I only have either my iPhone or iPad but have heard that only a iPod works? Can anyone comfirm on this for me and let me know exactly what works and what doesn't? I'm trying to put my music list together but don't know what to put it on an what will work or not. Thanks! Kelsey
