Back from my wedding at the Barcelo Maya

Recommended Posts

I have a question for you: I'm not saying this to be rude at all, I'm just curious. Did the person who conducted your ceremony speak clear english? We're getting "legally married" in the states and are having a beautiful symbolic ceremony, and the last thing I want is for people to not be able to understand him/her. Also, do you just hand them your ceremony and say "here ya go" or do you send it to them before-hand so they can read it? I mean you wouldn't give a speech to 100 people if you had NEVER looked at the material right? (i hope) smile43.gifTHANKS :)

Hey everyone. I just received notice that my WC, Ana, is no longer with the Barcelo Maya. Claudia is the person who I will be working with going forward. Does anyone have experience with her? Please share your thoughts.

For the ceremony, we actually had a friend do it for us, so we didn't have the people that work there do it, so I can't comment.

 

As for the fact that it was a symbolic ceremony, I didn't tell anyone that either, so everyone thought it was the legal wedding, and nobody knew!!

 

And just to reiterate what I said on the other thread, I think you'll be fine with Claudia instead of Ana...

Andrea,

I don't think that you have too much to worry about. They perform so many weddings at the Barcelo. Besides, doesn't the WC translate the officiant?

 

On a side note, how can I convince my fiance that I want a symbolic ceremony?

Symbolic meaning: Getting legally married in your city, and have the ceremony in Mexico right? Tell him it will be less hassle this way, and that you don't want to have a bruise on your arm for where they draw blood? LOL it could work...hehe

Another bargaining chip, it's cheaper... You will spend 300? I think dollars on the ceremony in Mexico, PLUS, show him some of the threads on this forum talking about how they spent days at the Mexican consulate after getting back trying to get the paperwork over to prove they are married in America.

 

There are plenty of examples of how annoying this is on this forum!!

I'm really looking at one of the Barcelo resorts, and I your pictures and review have definitely moved it up to the top for me. I was just wondering if it was difficult to get an outside photographer in? I was planning on using a local photographer (but not theirs), but now I'm thinking about flying someone in, and I'm concerned about them not being allowed to do photography (though honestly, if I'm paying for them to stay 3 nights, they aught to be able to do whatever the heck they want!!).

I'm getting married at the Barcelo in December 2008 and made sure I understood their photographer policy fully before I booked them. You are allowed to bring in an outside photographer so long as the photographer is staying at the resort or you purchase them a day pass.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
