Back from my wedding at the Barcelo Maya

Some of my guests thought the hilariously cheesy/bad DJ actually added to the fun, my Fiance says that's the one thing he probably wouldn't have bothered paying for if we did it again.
I think that it was fine, nice to not have to get my sister or bro-in-law to have to do that, I'm glad we had someone else do it, and it was fine.

you're getting me soooo excited!!!!
I'm so happy all the wedding stuff turned out great!
I also want to have my reception at one of the grills (not the banquet hall) which ones would you recommend?
also, which buffet did you ask to reserve space for all you guests? I also want to organize a welcome dinner.
one more thing, tell me anything single one detail i must know before i get married there!
I loved your review! Congrats you two!

The photographer was fantastic. Her rates start somewhere around 3500 dollars I think, but it totally depends on what package you get. She has been on vacation for a while, so you might want to email her again, she's back now and catching up.
I recommend the resort for all the wedding planning aspects, but they do have some issues with the general reception of the hotel. Either way, it was the perfect day for me, and I'm sure yours will be too, wherever you do it!

1) Where was your cocktail hour held at? Everybody walked to the location right after the wedding or was there a wait for this?
2) How was the transition from the ceremony to cocktail hour to the reception?
3) How were you able to book the Mariachi grill (close the place out) for your reception? I'm assuming it was private for your guests or were there other hotel guests there as well? I think I'm having about 40 guests.. I'm wondering if that's enough to close out one of their restaurants/grills for us. I'm a little nervous about getting a banquet hall cause it looks rather plain.. no decorations, just a room.
4) Do you by any chance know what options there are for the location of the ceremony if it rains ? I saw a picture of a hut that Ana sent me, but I'm not really crazy about it.

Thanks so much for that detailed review of your wedding. I'm so happy to read that you had a wonderful time at the resort and that you had a blast at your wedding. I'm getting married there at the end of 2008 and you've just put a bunch of my concerns at ease.
