  1. Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/
  2. Hi ladies! Do any of you have a file with the bouquet options from the resort? I am trying to decide if I want to spend the extra for bridesmaid bouquets or make them myself. I will be near a Hobby Lobby this weekend and they currently have 50% off all of their floral so I was hoping to pick some up if I am not liking the bridesmaid bouquet options.Thanks!
  3. I think that this site is linked many many pages back in the thread, but it is very helpful for a lot of tips and tricks about the resort. Some of the information is very old, but still good. http://www.unofficial-barcelo-maya.com/forum/index.php
  4. Congratulations Kristin! Here are a few items that have been included in the OOT (Out of Town) forums. For more great ideas open the Wedding Registries, Wedding gifts, and OOT Forum.

  5. efavormart.com has favor bags and boxes. I have ordered tulle and organza from them and it was very high quality at a great prices. I have not ordered favor packaging from them, but I have heard good things. papermart.com has a ton of cello bag options for great prices. Not sure if you can personalize the packaging on either of these sites. You could get personalized ribbon to tie off bags or boxes, or you could add a personalized sticker or tag.
  6. I love Afloral, I have had such good luck with them for other orders (my mom makes these awesome hanging baskets for my Dad's grave for the different seasons/holidays). Glad to hear you had great experience with them

  12. Does anyone have a list of the restaurants and bars at each hotel? Searching the website, they just provide the # of bars and the type of cuisine for each restaurant, not the name- from what I am seeing. If anyone could provide me a list, or a link to the information, that would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance
  13. For any of you looking for videos/photos of the resort, I found this great YouTube channel that shows you the ceremony and reception areas. It is 3 years old and there have been some remodels at the resort since these were filmed, but they at least give you an idea of the locations. https://www.youtube.com/user/RobackTravel/videos This is a video of a wedding- I believe at the Captain Morgan beach location This is a video from Barcelo regarding the wedding- although it does not show all of the locations the greatest
  14. Hi ladies, Just wanted to make sure you were all aware that the state of Quintana Roo has officially switched from Central Standard Time to Eastern Time in order to enjoy an extra hour of sunshine! If you are wanting your ceremony at a specific time in relation to sunset, make sure to check-in with your wedding coordinator!! Here is the article I found on this site regarding the change: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wedding-tips/c/locations/a-part-of-mexico-just-got-a-little-brighter-r2237 Happy planning ladies!
