We were married at the Barcelo on January 28, 2010. We had no problem having our photographer from Claudia Rodriquez Photography take our photos. My Travel Agent booked a room for the photographer and his assistant for one night in the Tropical. It was the same price as the beach/caribe. We only booked them one night and I believe it was about $269.00 Cdn.

I had double checked this with Claudia before hand and was told as long as they were a "guest" and booked for at least one night it would be no problem.

They never did end up using the room, so the photographer gave the key back to us to give to our guests to use.

Worked out great!!

Hi ladies

 

Can any of you help me......

 

On one of the emails Gabriela sent it said in the terms, you cant have a legal wedding on a Saturday, Sunday or Public holiday....

 

Victoria has put "on hold" our wedding date Sat 28th May 2011.

 

I've emailed her to say is it OK to have a legal ceremony on a Saturday and she hasn't answered my question she just replied "dont worry your wedding date is on hold"....

 

Has anyone, or is anyone having a legel ceremony at the Palace on a Saturday? It would put my mind at rest if you could help me!

 

Many thanks

OK Michelle...Saturday is OK. I just got a reply from the OCEAN TURQUESA's WC (a reply within 24 hours! I am impressed!) meanwhile I sent 3 emails to the Barcelo..and no bounce back..no reply ...nothing...it is like talking to a wall.

that is what she said:"Be advise that in order to get legally married in Mexico the couple and their four witnesses have to be in the country 4 working days.( Legal weddings on Sundays and Mexican Holidays are not available, due the administration of the city hall)"

Therefore, Saturday is GOOD.

Is anyone working with Karen? That's my wedding planner for the Barcelo Maya Palace. It takes her a couple days to get back as well. It is so frustrating that it takes so long. I tried to call a few times and can't get a hold of anyone either.

Michelle, I think Mexicans are pretty hard working people. LOL unlike the Frenchs and the Bahamians. I guess the city hall only closes on Sunday. I don't think it is a hotel policy, because so far I am getting the same info on the witness and the # days of stay before the wedding from both the Barcelo and the Ocean Turquesa.

You just have to check if that Saturday is a mexican holiday ( I don't think so).

Thanks for the info. I just dont get why it said saturdays in the email sent. But i am very pleased we can get married on the Saturday. Sometimes their emails are a little vague! We are staying for 2weeks so the 4 day thing wont be a problem for us luckily!
