I'm freaking out because I want to send my STD's in March, what if they don't have our day available?!?!?!? I guess my STD's would just say "Riviera Maya, Mexico" and not name the location, and if all else fails we'd choose a different location! But we really have our hearts set on having it at Barcelo! Is anyone else having it there in 2010? Have you been told the same thing!

Thanks!
Hey sandra-- I just booked my date (July 1 2010) about 3 weeks ago. I am not having mine at the palace though, I am having it at the Colonial/Tropical. I didn't have any problems, but I'm wondering if it's different with the Palace?

Hi Meagan! We doubled checked with the WC at Barcelo and she confirmed our day! She didn't require a deposit or anything, but wants confirmation with booking our room as soon as the new rates are up!

another question... I was interested in have a booze cruise welcome party the night before the wedding and didn't know if anyone had information on catamaran services at or around the resort. I should have about 50 guests. I am thinking sunset with cocktails

Hi,

 

Does anyone have the 2010 prices or know when they will be out? Thanks! Also, I am looking into prices for a catamaran for about 50 people too. I will let you know what I find!

My WC sent me an email last night saying that the rules have changed and they do not allow outside photogrpahers in even on a day pass. I wonder if the Tropicals rules differ from the palace rules because the palace is higher end? Or is it just every wc interprets the rules differently? ( i double posted this in another Barcelo thread but think this one is more popular) Other then this photogrpahy issue and the amount of time it takes them to answer back we have been pretty pumped about the Barcelo

What if your are flying in your photographer and they will be guests at the resort? This is what I had planned and had read in other posts that this was allowed...I hope this is still allowed, because I've been negotiating packages with photographers all week!

Also,On average, how long does it take for the WC's to respond to their e-mails? I sent one over 2 weeks ago and am still waiting for a response....

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
