I'm getting married at the Palace on January 7, 2009! I have done A LOT of research, and have a great wedding planner here in Denver who's stayed at nearly every hotel in Cancun and Riviera Maya. She stayed at the Barcelo' Palace about 3 weeks ago, and couldn't speak highly enough about it. It's nice to talk to someone first hand who has slept in the beds, eaten the food, and seen/planned the weddings. I also have 2 co-workers who stayed there recently and they said it was amazing! I feel very confident that we made a great choice by picking the Barcelo' Palace!!!! I would love any feedback :)

Hi! I concur it is a great choice, we picked the Barcelo Maya Tropical but it was a tough choice between the Tropical and the Palace! I know someone who just got back from the Barcelo recently and LOVED it. My only problem is that the wedding coordinators take a few weeks to respond to you so if you have any questions start e-mailing them now! Have you checked out UNOFFICIAL BARCELO MAYA | Your unofficial guide to Beach | Caribe | Tropical | Colonial | Palace It is a great site with lots of info

Great to hear more positive feedback about the Barcelo. I know all of them are gorgeous! When are you set to get married? My wedding planner has taken care of contacting the resort, set the date ect. but she also said it can be tough to reach the coordinators. I'm pretty easy going and know it will all turn out GREAT! smile159.gif

I am getting married at the Palace on Jan 17, 2009. Im going on a site visit on June 23rd so let me know if there is anything you need me to find out. My TA stayed at the Palace a few weeks ago with a group of TA's touring 2o or so spots in the RM. They raised the slow response time from the wedding coordinators as an issue and were promised improvement...dont know if anyting has improved bc I have not tried to contact them for months.

Very smart of you to do a site visit. I actually may have a few questions if you don't mind? Let me talk to my WC here in Colorado and I'll let you know my questions. Thanks so much for offering! :)

Hi, I am also getting married at the Barcelo Palace. Our wedding date is June 27, 2008. We are leaving on June 20th (less than 3 weeks away!) We visited the resort Sept 2007 and it's beautiful. The Palace opened in December, but when we were there, we were allowed to walk through some areas at the Palace. We are getting married at the on-site catholic chapel and our reception is at the Coral Grill. We have 60 people in our group. I've been talking to Gabriella (WC) through email. Right now the response time is super slow, but they have 2-3 weddings a day! Typially they will write back and answer all of your questions, but it takes them time. Please let me know if you have any questions, I've been researching the Barcelo for about 9 months now and can help out if I can.smile159.gif

I read one Barcelo review about the judge asking if they wanted the ceremony in spanish or english .. Do they usually give you a choice or was that a random thing?

 

 

The tall white gazebo at the Palace can be used as a site right?

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
