    Yesterday we completed all the steps up to the spa appointments, which Xhail mentioned didn't need to be done until 2-3 months prior, and I don't want any for the wedding day anyway, as one of my bridesmaids is a hairdresser and one is a make up artist, so i'm feeling pretty ahead of the game, considering the wedding is just under 9 months away, 265 days to be exact but who is counting ;)

     

    I've ordered my dress, picked up the bridesmaid gifts, chair sashes, arch fabric, centrepieces, cake topper, and 26 people including ourselves are booked. AND we booked our honeymoon yesterday!!!!!! 7 nights at the Villa Rolandi on isla de mujeres, it's a boutique style hotel, adult only, ocean view suites, and jacuzzi tubs on off the balcony's. We're pumped! They're going to pick us up from the Barcelo in a private SUV and then we take a 42 foot yacht to the hotel. 
     

    Things on the to do list still:

    Groomsmen outfits (thinking they can go in the new year)

    Groomsmen Gifts (trying to get my fiance on this now)

    Need to order fans and paresol umbrellas

    DIY table numbers and seating chart

    DIY: Thank you sign to bring for photos

    AND wedding bands

     

    How is everyone else's progress? Is anyone else getting married on the 23 of April? We arrive with our group on April 20 and everyone leaves April 27th, and we change hotels for our honeymoon until May 4th.

    That's awesome!!! You are definitely ahead of the game! I can't wait to start planning all the details but I haven't booked my room yet. What location are you getting married at and what package did you pick? I'm having such a hard time deciding on the package because we were gonna go with the mint breeze and during our site visit we weren't too thrilled with the banquet hall and saw a reception in one of the Grills and we looved it but we are estimating about 60 guests

      Hi Lori,

       

      Our ceremony is going to be at the Coral Beach and the reception at the Coco Beach. We wanted to have our feet in the sand during the ceremony and reception, so that's what we chose based on the options. We're having the trees lit up and bringing a few simple decorations from home. 

       

      We're going with the Strawberry Passion Package, I would have been completely fine with what was included in the Mint Breeze package but we also didn't like/want the banquet hall. 

       

      We have 26 people including us as of right now who have put down their deposits, we might have a few more sign up closer to the date, but we're very happy with the turn out so far. We gave our guests the option of the colonial or Palace, they have ALL chosen to stay at the Palace. 

       

      Best of luck with your planning, let me know if you have any questions, I have all the documents from my coordinator, menu options, chair sash colours, centrepiece options, bouquet options etc...

       

      Heidi

          Hey ladies, we are home from our wedding/honeymoon. It was AMAZING! I will do a full review later once we get settled in. I would love to be helpful to all of you future brides like the past brides were for me! My best advice would be, don't panic about details. Like everyone else one here has said, it may feel like your coordinator is not answering you but everything WILL come together.

            Hello Barcelo Brides!!!

            I just got back from a site inspection at the Barcelo Palace Deluxe and was completely blown away at how beautiful the resort is.  We set our date for February 14, 2015!!! Super excited!!  I know it's early but I have lots of questions for past brides.  My ceremony is going to be in the Catholic chapel. I love that it's covered so everyone isn't baking in the sun and that I can do a religious ceremony with a real church feel.  We chose the rooftop cocktail hour and I forgot the name of where we are having the reception but it's a big restaurant that's all open. I am inviting 200 guests and expecting maybe 100 to make it. My MAIN question is this.... Do I need to go with the largest package (tangerine) or do they allow you to just pay for the reception and other things separately? I don't feel that all of the items that come in the tangerine package are necessary for me.  So I was wondering if anyone has ever booked their stuff separately and opted not to pick a package.  Also, are there great kickbacks to having a large group for a wedding? If I guarantee them 50 rooms am I entitled to a free reception. Any feedback and experiences are most appreciate!! :) Thanks in advance!

              Thanks for the review!!! Did you happen to look at any other resorts? I am undecided between the Palace, moon and Riu so your review/advice is a big help'

                Anyone else going to be getting married between October 6-13, 2013?  Our wedding day is October 10 but would love to meet up for a drink or a high five.

                    Does anyone know if we are allowed to bring our own candles to put on the tables in the banquet rooms?  I have bought tealights to put in our personalized tealight holder that I am worried that we are not allowed to light.  Should we be bringing battery tealight candles? Thank you!
