I hope this makes sense.  If you have any other questions you can PM me.

Just to add to the document discussion, the only time you will need your birth certificate is if you have been previously married and divorced. Then there are a whole bunch more hoops to jump through.

That is great to know! Also good point about having it in two places! Hmm I can't wait to see your pictures, I may have to book those spots :) Thanks!

It is quite secluded though.  Either location is beautiful for a ceremony and both are private (Playa Azul being a little more private).  We chose Coral Beach because of the palm trees (it was more sheltered)  and the gorgeous scenic background.  And we wanted to have part of our wedding near the Palace.  It was nice to have 2 different locations for the ceremony and the reception.  It made for a variety of backgrounds for pictures. I wouldn't change a thing!

Ok great to know, I was under the impression that we had to have our original  birth certificates for the symbolic ceremony....(so that only applies to people who have been married before?)   also I have heard along the way... our witnesses cannot be family is that true? or am I thinking of another country.....I've been researching all over so I may have gotten a few things confused... thanks for the info ladies!!!

Hi Mexico_2011,

 

Thanks for the wonderful review.  I'm getting married at the Barcelo Maya Palace on December 1, 2011.  Its very comforting to read all the wonderful reviews.  You put in your review that you used an Ipod.  Which version did you use (Touch, Nano)?  Claudia is not sure which Ipods work.  She knows that the Nano works, but we have a Touch.  Thanks so much for your help!!

When we were there we were able to use our Iphones and ipad with the equiptment, so I am sure an I pod touch would work.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
