That's another $200 on top of what I'll already have to pay Mannia and I'm just not sure I wanna spend that much. I know NOTHING about the resident DJ yet. I'm waiting on a response from Claudia regarding if he has a website or anything. I'll post on here when I find out. Sure, I'll email you the PDF of the flowers. I'm less than impressed with what I saw in the photos, so I asked Claudia if those are my only options. Waiting to hear back. I pray they aren't! Well, I'm going to buy my dress and pick out BM dresses on Thursday so wish me luck! Diamondpooch, Wow, I got quoted $90 an hour for the external DJ's electricity and you were quoted $50?!?! I'm hiring an outside dj, but Ana told me it's $90 extra an hour! Hmmm....I hope it's actually $50/hour. It's not right to tell people different things, though so I reaaallly hope I was misquoted!! -Tania

Did you stay there for your honeymoon?? -Tania

One of my friends got married at the Barcelo this year, and before I saw how her wedding turned out, I was pulling out my hair trying to find a resort! They did such a great job with everything and the ceremony/reception locations were all gorgeous! Also on my list of prerequisites, I wanted a resort with nice rooms, a nice pool and beach and good reviews on food with plenty for guests to do during their stay. My ceremony will most likely take place on the beach (that can change when I see the gazebo in person!), and the reception will probably take place in one of the open-air grills. We'll see...it's kinda hard to figure it out when you're so far away! I booked my photographer before they changed their rules about no outside photogs...also, she required a hotel room for that night. I heard that if they're staying as a guest, they're allowed to shoot your wedding...not sure if that's the case anymore, though.. Happy planning, and good luck! Let me know if you have any more questions!!
  4. Erica, Thanks so much for all the info. and for sharing your special day with us! Elizabeth Medina did such a fabulous job for you guys! Looking at your pics makes me so excited, and I can't wait to see what she does for us! Question...that big thing with your names on it during your beach party, is that the "air star" that's on the price list? I love it!! Congrats to you and Doug!!! -Tania
  5. Hi, guys! Just wanted to say hello, and say that this forum is great! I'm sure I'll be coming here to continue planning my wedding! 9 months to go! I picked Barcelo Maya Palace and my photog because of the great reviews on here! Thanks for all your tips and advice! -Tania
  6. Hey everyone! I'm so excited, I booked our wedding for June 26, 2010 at the Barcelo Palace!!!! This forum is so helpful! Erica, I booked Elizabeth Medina, too! Your pictures are AMAZING! Congrats! It looks like you all had a great time, and I'm glad the Barcelo was so accommodating... I wish I could use the French restaurant, too. It looks gorgeous... I guess they offered it b/c nothing else was available for you? Did you bring your own centerpieces?
