It definitely was challenging, because the resort is really big, but we definitely developed a bit of a routine and the 'usual' places that we would hang out.

      That's a good idea with the room numbers.  Did the front desk give those to you when you arrived so you could fill them in?  Thanks for the advice!

          I thought it would be great to give my guests personalized tumblers....who did this and did the Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe give your guests problems about filling the cups at the bar?

          We have been to Barcel³ before and always have brought our own cups and never had any problems getting them filled. We also got these type of cups for our guests.

            Mellie, how far in advance do you have to ask to block off an area at the buffet? That is perfect just to get everyone together and to hand out bags! Do they charge extra for this?

              Hi!

               

              I just told my coordinator and she said she will have it set up, we just have to get there right when the buffet opens for dinner to get our reserved area. It does not cost anything extra as we will still be using the buffet to eat.

                  Hello everyone!

                   

                  We recently were married at the Barcelo and we used

                  *

                   

                  Jaime Glez Photography. Him and his wife were very personable and were fun to be around! All the guests at my wedding are still raving about how awesome they were. It almost seemed as if they were guests and not our photographers. He even broke out some awesome dance moves on the dance floor! It was like having a long lost friend at my wedding.

                   

                  When I was researching photography I found Jaime, but was concerned because there were not many reviews on him. I decided to take a chance after looking at his portfolio (it was amazing).....THANK GOD I DID! It also helped that his pricing was WAY better than almost all of the other photographers!

                   

                  My photos turned out awesome and he captured all the right moments. The best part of our package was our video slideshow....it was incredible and I could tell that it took time...He did not just randomly throw pictures to music. There was flow and re-captured the ambiance and mood of the night.

                   

                  I hired Jaime for the full 8 hours. He EVEN did well beyond the 8 hours trying to capture all the wonderful moments. My husband and myself were amazed that Jaime would be so giving, that should tell you that he is not there trying to make a profit. He is there to make the bride and her entourage feel amazing and to capture all the moments of the day. I will also say that acouple days before the wedding (since I booked him into the hotel as per the hotels policy), he wanted a meet and greet and asked us about our story and how we came to this moment in our lives....He listened and took in everything that we were saying. He even offered to do a mini photo session that night (we didn't because time did not permit).

                   

                  If you are a bride and are struggling with the decision of who to use for your wedding photography, I suggest that you use Jaime Glez Photography. He was kind, professional, thoughtful, and has a keen eye for capturing the moments (small or big) of the big day.

                   

                  I have already thought about re-booking Jaime the next time we are in Mexico for anniversary photos... :)

                   

                  Jaime was not just a photographer, but a friend! Any brides that would like more information please message me! I am happy to help as I know how stressful it is! Just remember that the coordinators are professionals and everything will turn out even better than you could ever imagine! Happy planning ladies!

                   

                  If you would like to check out Jaimes website and portfolio, you can find it at: www.jaimeglez.net

                    No, there is not an extra fee for this.  If you are staying at the Palace and having it there, there is a 5.00 fee for those not staying at the Palace.
