Mexico_2011, Can you tell me where you got this room rate? It seems everywhere I check it's a lot more expensive.

 

Thanks :)

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

I got the rate from my TA. I think she is working it in with our group rate, but I'm not sure. I haven't booked it yet so I hope it doesn't change by the time I do!

Just wanted to post my experience thus far with the Barcelo Maya wedding coordinators, for anyone that may be considering Barcelo Maya for their wedding resort:

 

* Communication thus far it's been A+. I sent out my initial "wedding date request" email and had a response in 5 business days. I then sent my booking manifest and received my confirmation of wedding date and time within 2 days!!!!!

* I have Victoria and she seems very much on the ball, her English is perfect and has even sent me a guest list excel sheet for me to fill out so she can try and book our rooms together/handle any special requests.

 

I hope that everyone else is happy with their experience thus far, and just wanted to share mine :)

 

5 months 2 weeks and we'll be there!!! yipeeee

That's great. I have Victoria too :o) she is lovely. I have yet to email her about having an outside photographer so hope she responds OK to that. I'm really stressing over the new onsite ones smile27.gif

I was so excited when I heard they hired a new company...then I looked at their pictures....eeekkkk, not that great. Very standard shots, nothing that inspired me. 

We hired Ivan Luckie and the deal with the outside photographer is that they have to be a "guest of the wedding". This means you have to book them in for 2 nights at the hotel (and some other people here said they got away with just one night). The other option is to pay $300 outside vendor fee to the other company...but that just seems silly to me. I will be booking them into the hotel the night before the wedding and the night of the wedding. Makes more practical sense to me. 

 

Good luck with all your planning! When are you getting married? What section are you staying in?

Have you made a decision on which photographer you will be hiring? I was feeling unsure about the new onsite photographers too so I ended up hiring an outside photographer.  My WC just said they had to be a guest at the hotel for a minimum of 2 nights.  Keep us posted!!

So if you pay for them to stay at the hotel you dont have to pay the $300? We haven't decided what to do yet..Just looking into it as wanted a video done to but on a tight budget... We are getting married on 1st June 2011 at the Palace (gazebo). I feel the same that the onsite photographers are pretty standard. They have emailed me a couple of times but just dont know what to do...

There is no fee for outside vendors (other than the photographer). We had someone outside do the cake, the flowers, the DJ... and we rented chairs from an outside vendor (but this was through Victoria). Still... no charge. Suppose the fee for outside photographers is because the hotel (stupidly) has a contract with an on site photographer... but not the same issues with other outside vendors because no contracts...

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
