You will find ALL the info about Barcelo Maya here. http://www.unofficial-barcelo-maya.com/forum/index.php

There is a "neverending wedding photo thread" that has all pics of various sections/weddings on the resort! 

Good luck, and it's a great choice!

I know I have a ton of time before I have to decide, but I have already talked to Wendy Hicks from Wright Travel Agency (sooo super helpful) and she has also suggested the Riu Palace Riviera Maya. Just wanted to get some opinions on what sealed the deal for you with the Barcelo! 

 

We are definitely looking to have a wedding on the beach, that's a definite non-negotiable, and I haven't seen too many pics of beach weddings.  Am I just looking in the wrong places?  Any help would be so greatly appreciated.  Thanks girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cheesy.gif

Hola Melanie,

 

External photographer are not allowed on the resort, if he is one of your guest is necessary that you book him minimum 2 nights at the resort  minimum.

 

Thanks,

 

Claudia  Vazquez Garcia

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the email I have recieved from Claudia about the outside photographer policy,

 

2. what are your policies regarding outside photography?   Is necessary that they pay a $ 300.00usd fee for the company that is at the resort.

Haha...I love that every time the question is asked about outside photographers, Claudia's answer is different.

 

I'm guessing either $300 or 2 nights minimum. I'm going to pay whatever is cheaper :)

Make sure you also factor day passes for the photographer and their assistant.  This are in addition to the $300.00.

FYI the cheapest price I found per night at the hotel was around $152/night and that was on bookit.com

one or the other, 2 nights will included their meals and rooms, the 300 is for a "outside vendor fee" so with the 300 i was told u have to purchase 2 day passes to which specific hotel u are getting married at. like mine would be 300+2x(70$) i believe it is for the colonial!

I think I'll do the 2 nights...hopefully they allow you to choose one  of the cheaper hotels on the property. I'll just figure it out when we get down there.

I will be booking our photographer a room for 2 nights at the Barcelo Maya Beach. The price I have is $165 (Canadian) per night and that's all inclusive. So meals will be paid for and I don't have to worry about the day pass. I am going to book it soon so I don't have to worry about it.

It will be cheaper than paying the $300 outside vendor fee plus the two daypasses.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
