Hi everyone! I am planning my wedding at the Barcelo Maya Palace for November 10, 2012. This website has been beyond amazing with advice and ideas! I just booked my date and am beginning to work with Claudia. So, far I know we plan to have a Catholic ceremony in the chapel and I want our reception at one of the open air grills (we have the strawberry passion package). I like the looks of the Palmeras Grill and the Coral Grill. Does anyone have any recommendations for which one is best?

 

Also - Claudia e-mailed me about the early stages for planning the ceremony and asked me to select what music I would like - Violin, flute, saxophone, or musicians (keyboard & bass). She wants me to choose one but I would kind of like to hear each before I make a decision. Can anyone offer their opinion on what they liked based on your experience??

 

Thanks so much!!

Palmeras grill is an option for the Strawberry Passion package, the Coral grill usually isn't.  They use it in the evenings - so I think you have to pay big bucks, or have a really large group to get the Coral Grill.

 

I had the violinist, it was nice.  To be honest I don't even remember what they played :)

Can someone please post a pic of the Palmeras grill? I am sure I have seen it but but I can't remember. Also, can anyone tell me what kind of room they use for the reception in the Mint Breeze Package? we haven't decided between that one or the Strawberry. We are only having  20 people so it's small but I want it to look nice.

 

Thanks

Angela,

 

My advice if you have a question - go to the "search this thread" option.  Most of these pictures are from this thread.  Many a person has asked and had answers posted before us!

 

Check out this thread and a few others

http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/3107/barcelo-maya

http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/67560/2012-barcelo-maya-palace-brides/ also

http://www.unofficial-barcelo-maya.com/forum/

 

Another tip to see ceremony and reception locations - go on the well known photographers websites (Del Sol, Sascha Gluck etc. and they usually have their weddings tagged by location.

 

and if all else fails, just randomly googling things usually is fruitful!

 

Hope that helps!

 

Here are some Palmeras Grill

Congrats! We used Claudia too, she was fantastic...quite quick with responses, never more than a couple days. Our reception was at Coral Beach, in front of the Coral Grille, was a beautiful setting, the plam trees all lit up, sound of waves crashing. Loved it...

For our ceremony we went with the saxaphone and they were really good. We just decided last minute when we had our meeting with Claudia. Originally we werent going to have any, but I am glad we did. When my father and I first arrived at the hall outside the gazebo, it took me a minute to realize it was for us the music was playing...it filled the halls! Highly recommend the sax...

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
