Barcelo Maya Palace Brides

As far as the Welcome party being $5000. You do not have to have to let bill go that high.. you can have a gorgeous dinner on the beach with just high cocktail tables.... and there is no extra cost besides the food. You do not have to have it for 3 hours either. There are ways to have a beautiful party on the beach for much less. I hope I did not discourage you
Do not get me wrong... the rented furniture was gorgeous, but not needed if your budget does not allow. I would ask the WC for other options... Also.... what about having them section off a part of the Buffet?? I did that one night and it was wonderful... somewhat private.... and everyone gets to eat what they want... Thats another option!

You're amazing! Thanks so much for answering all our questions...I imagine a bride would be exhausted post wedding and say..."I need a break, no questions please." haha. But being that you were in our shoes not too long ago, you completely understand why we're "who, what, why, when, where, how?!?!?!?!"...so, thanks so much for sharing not only your beautiful pictures, but also your honest and kind words.

Do you then still have to pay the $300.00 to Photo Caribe? and won't the resort recognize the photographer and that they are only a guest for one night? I hate to pay to have a photographer there and then be told they can't take pictures. Sorry, but it seems to be different for everyone......
Thanks for the help!!

I just want to thank you for all of your feedback and answering everyone's questions because it has truly helped me out a lot. I've gotten a lot of inspiration from you from seeing your pictures and reading about your experience. It has made me so excited and so happy to choose the Barcelo.
Congrats again to you and Doug on a beautiful wedding! (I just noticed that your wedding day was the same day I got engaged!)

Are you bringing a photographer from home or are you using one in the Mayan?

I was wondering if anyone knows if there would stores near the Barcelo Palace where I could purchase some wooden maracas?? I'd like to use these as favors, but the idea of bringing them down with me from Canada isn't too appealing... Also, anyone that has been to the resort or surrounding areas, would I be able to find paper parasols nearby?? I'd like to hand some out at the ceremony, since I'm planning on getting married in the gazebo, so it doesn't offer much shade to the guests attending...Thanks for your help!!
