  1. Hi everyone! I am a former BDW bride (Puerto Vallarta 2008). I am now a bridesmaid for a DW in August which will be held at Barcelo Maya Palace. All guests are staying next door at Barcelo Maya Tropical and I have been trolling around for sometime reading reviews. I want to know if anyone can refer me to a Tour Operator where we can arrange a group tour (or tours). As Barcelo is only 9 miles or so from Xcaret, we are trying to price out the cost of buying a package from the hotel vs pre-purchasing tickets direclty on the website and arranging our own transportation (either by charter bus or taxi). The bride and groom are expecting anywhere between 125-150ppl. Thanks in advance! Amy
  2. I know this is an old post, however Pris and Hector were my wedding coordinators for my 2008 wedding and they were nothing but professional, kind and went above and beyond anything I expected. Although I don't agree with her beliefs, I think they are amazing people and incredible wedding coordinators. I have nothing but positives to say about them. Mishka couldn't have expressed it better. She was not trying to be disrespectful or hateful. I hope that your post does not deter PV brides from using their services.

  5. I was had my reception on the beach at the Mayan Palace in the Marina in 2008 and I loved it.
  6. Hi! There are a few threads about the Mayan Palace in the Marina. I got married there July 4, 2008. Try the search feature and my links below. Let me know if you have any trouble.
  7. We stayed at the GVV for our honeymoon and I loved it. It was very quiet, not a party resort but the service was amazing! I felt so spoiled there. The spa was a amazing too. Almost two years later and I still dream about it. The resort is very clean so I am not sure why someone would get sick or complain about the food. You have five-star meals. People tend to exaggerate and forget that when they go to an AI they tend to over-indulge in the all-you-can-eat food and alcohol. I wrote a review which you can find in my sig. If the link doesn't work, pm me and I'll try to find the post.

I don't know too much about adding kids to the guest list - we only had one kid attend, so obviously it didn't make a big difference to our guest list/budget! We just did a plate of chicken nuggets for him, I know it was cheaper, but I can't remember how much cheaper. This is what we did for our wedding. We had 175 guests attend our wedding (about 35 were kids under 12). We had a kids menu which was about 1/2 the cost of the regular menu. I made activity kits for them so they would stay entertained during dinner. My WC suggested we contain the kids in the cocktail area where they could hang out, but most of the kids are rowdy and I opted for them to stay close to their parents where they could be supervised.
  9. Did you try running a search for "spanish songs"? I know there are a few threads. http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...=spanish+songs http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...=spanish+songs http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...=spanish+songs http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...=spanish+songs
  10. You can work with your WC and see if they can designate a kids table and maybe get one of the certified babysitters coordinate activities for the kids.
