  1. The gazebo is really nice but it is right off the lobby and the walk way to the buffet is right there too so people are constantly walking by. People just stop and gather around and start taking pictures. But there are locations on the beach that are even less private. Right smack in the middle of everything.Maybe pick a time that is less busy at the buffet so there isn't much traffic.
  2. I'm pretty sure it is through the airline/travel agent. we had every 16th person free with west jet and we were 1 person short in the end to get 2 free people so the airline gave us a deal and we only had to pay taxes on the one flight.
  3. Islandbarbie, Th music apparently played before the wedding and after we walked down the aisle.But not during the ceremony. I just felt that we had the option to change anything we wanted once we had the meeting. I wasn't prepard for any of that! I need time to think about things so for picking songs etc. I was thrown off! Also, she gave us the option of having the reception pretty much anywhere we wanted so that was a scramble. We didn't end up deciding until the morning of the wedding. All in all it turned out great no matter what I planned and what I didn't! Hope that helps
  4. Thank you! I don't think the Palapa is there anymore... we got married at playa azul and paid for an arch there.
  5. Here is my review! http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/products/barcelo-maya-palace-deluxe-all-inclusive/reviews/7316
  6. Hey ladies, I am back from the wedding, everything went great. Just waiting for my photos before I write a review.Let me know if you have any questions!
  7. I had the violin, but I can't remember at all any music playing. My guests said it was beautiful and they all cried. My wedding planner asked me when I got down there what music I wanted to be playing but I was so hungover that I said whatever. So she said the traditional songs would play... later my guests told me that after the ceremony they played "like a virgin" by Madonna! hahahaha I was pretty embarrassed! So my advice would be to pick songs!
  8. Hey ladies! I am leaving Wednesday for Mexico! My wedding is on May 4th and I am using the resort photographer, DJ and spa for my hair. I will let you future brides know how it goes since I know there is a lot of negative feedback about them all. Hopefully I have some positive stuff to bring back! xo
  9. Did your wedding coordinator plan the rehersal dinner or did you girls do it yourself?
  10. Does anyone know what the last part of the planning process (setp 8: rooms/day pass) is for? Is it just for outside vendors/guests or is for everyone on your guest list?
  11. We start booking in July and I think prices stayed reasonable until about October. A bunch of people were waiting for deals in February, but by February the prices were almost double!
  12. For all you brides getting married in May next year warn your guests not to wait too late to book the hotel! The Palace is all full for this May (1st-8th) and I still have guest that have booked flights but no hotel, now they have to stay at one of the other Barcelo's. Plus prices sky rocketed after we booked and never went back down... for all those people that think they can wait for last minute deals! Doesn't happen for this hotel!
  13. Hi ladies, I have decided to opt out of the cocktail hour but was hoping I could send my guests to one of the bars while they wait for the reception to start. Did someone say that they served appetizers at the lobby bar? Any bar that you would recommend to send them too? Thanks!!!!
