Back from my wedding at the Barcelo Maya
Posted 03 June 2008 - 06:05 AM
The Barcelo was VERY clear with me when we go there, and we picked extras that we didn't have to. But it was all stuff that I knew, and was VERY similar to what I calculated it being (there were slight differences and I upgraded some stuff when I got there: Again, you wouldn't have to do that!).
So, I can't think of any hidden costs...
And I'm SURE yours will flow perfectly. I was really worried about having a 1.5 to 2 hour cocktail hour, but we had mariachis and it ended up just being a great part of the party!

What kind of ceremoney did you have? I'm thinking about having a nonlegal ceremony but I'm not sure how that works - if I do that I would want none of my guests to know that we didn't get "officially" married there. Wonder if someone would find out or know the difference somehow.
Also, I'm staying at the Colonial. Just wondering.. if I decided to have my ceremony/reception at the Palace if that could be accomodated. Probably not but in case you know let me know.

My timing was ceremony at 4.30, cocktail hour from 5.00 to 6.30, Reception at 6.30, so it flowed really well! It was fantastic.
but, I think just from going to weddings on my own it would be great to have a break in the afternoon.
As for the palace vs colonial, I think you'd probably be fine changing. They kept moving us around between them, soI think they're really flexible!
