    Hello eblum999
    I'm getting married at the Barcelo Colonial and I wondered what was the choice for the wedding ceremony. Do we have access to the gazebo in the section of the palace?. What is the chapel of barcelo Colonial? Do you have a photo. Regarding the reception, what are my options and what costs are. Thank you so much

      kinthia- to answer some of your questions (as I am getting married at the Maya Beach)... basically you have all the same options as those at the Palace... except for location of ceremony and reception. Palace guests can only have access to Palace restaurants etc... and this includes the gazebo for weddings. However, what is available to you in regards to wedding packages etc... is the same for all the Barcelo brides. If you go back a few pages you will see someone already posted the wedding packages and prices for 2010.
      Maybe someone else can answer you re. the chapel.

      I suggest you read this thread from start to finish and you will find most of your questions answered. There is also an extremely informative thread in another section on the Maya Beach and there are also pictures posted of the banquet rooms etc... I will find that and link it in here... give me a sec!

          Hi Erica
          I will have my wedding in the chapel as well and party at the beech next to colonial hotel. Can you send me some of your pictures I can’t wait to see how they organized things? Also can you let me know what photographer did you use?
          Thank you in advance.

              Hey Girls!

              I had my reception at the French Restaurant at the Palace. I do not think this is a customary thing to have the reception in a restaurant.. it was suppose to be outside by the pools but they overbooked my reception spot and had a make an extensive exception for us... but everything worked out for the best. I had the Ocean Scents package and added on an hour to the reception (only 3 hours are included in the price of the package). I believe it was an extra $9 per head. I had a total of 45 people. They did such an incredible job... I would do it again in a second! My photographer that I used was Elizabeth Medina.... I loved her!!! She has yet to post my pictures on the web.. but as soon as she does I will post them on here! Any day now!

              Also I used the Kiko and Carlos band.... My guests were raving about them! They were honestly the best live band ever! Totally recommend them ten times over! They made the party!

              I used a makeup artist... He was so awesome.... Came and did my makeup trial for my rehearsal dinner and did myself, mom and whole bridal party the day of the wedding... and everyone loved him! He is so nice and I would again recommend him to anyone! I wish he lived in Jersey... I would totally use him again... He does not have a webpage... but here is his email... Tell him Erica recommended ya if you decide to you him!

              Adrian Guerra - email.... adriang1224@gmail.com

              PS Does anyone know how to post just one or 2 pics on his site? I have a couple that people took.. but I am clueless on how to post them!

              Thanks :)

                Hi Erica -- were the makeup artist and band ones that the Barcelo offered you or did you hire them from outside? If so , was there a vendor fee or did you have to pay for a night's lodging for them?
                thank you!
                PS Can't wait to see your Elizabeth Medina pictures, I bet they are awesome

                  Erica!! You're back!!! Congratulations on your wedding! I'm sure it was beautiful! I'd love to see your pics! Feel free to email them if you don't know how to post them on there (I don't either, lol). My email is rochas521@yahoo.com. Elizabeth is amazing so I'm sure your pictures will be incredible! I was thinking about having a makeup artist also...was he expensive? Did you have to pay for his pass to be at Barcelo? You'll have to post a review about everything! We'd all love to read it! Congrats again :)

                    Hi Erica,

                    Sounds like you had a great day! It scares me that they overbooked your reception spot. Did you request the pool location ahead of time via email or what? Were they able to offer you other outdoor reception locations due to their mistake or were they all booked? I'd hate to pay for a package that included an outdoor reception only to find out that no spots were available outside.

                    Thanks!

                    Steph

                      Hi Erica,
                      Can you please let us know how you used an outside photographer? Was the band, hair dresser etc...from outside the resort? I was told that we have to use photographer at the Barcelo unless we pay to have them stay overnight.....not sure how much that would cost.
