Sandra!!!

Thank you so much for the info and links. I have to say that I don't really care for the cantelope/hurricane centerpieces either. Your centerpieces are going to be awesome!... Kohls is a great place to find anything you could possibly need. My fiance is pretty set about having floating candles with sand and shells as centerpieces, I don't think he understands that we have to lug all of this down there ourselves or pay extra for it at the resort :) He's trying to be a DIY groom!!! He did do a great job with our save the date magnets, so he gets props for that!!

Hope you had a great weekend, thanks again for the info!

 

Amy

lol, first calm down. it isn't a deal breaker! honestly in most resorts there will be a dress code for restaurants. all you need to pack for your FI is a couple pairs of pants and a pair of shoes. you can wear a dress, capris, bermuda shorts, pretty much anything goes except flip flops on your feet...the buffets don't have a dress code because they're much more casual. but would you want to only eat buffet food all week? i know i wouldn't! it's nice to make a reservation, sit and enjoy a nice meal. as far as your guests are concerned...they should receive a dress code at some point...either through your website if you have one, your invitations, your travel agent, etc...anyone who has traveled to a resort in the past will understand. good luck and don't let something as simple as this get you confused and upset!

It is there that you will see a bunch of different pictures of the centerpieces and table arrangements both inside the banquet hall and outside. I believe is the 2nd to last page. I'm horrible at html coding. I need to look it up and then I'll post all the pics! But it's late and I'm pooped out!

Ha! I know, I just want this to be a nice vacation for my guests and I think it is a little inconvenient that men have to wear pants and closed toe shoes. I know when we went to Cabo last month we wore flip flops EVERYWHERE (even the nice restaurant at the resort) and it was nice and relaxed. I expect my fiance and his grooms men to wear flip flops in our ceremony. Oh well. Also, I read that you can only eat out at the restaurants twice. Is that true?

I thought if you stayed at the Palace you have unlimited ala cartes, at least I hope so. Does anyone know who has stayed there? I think if you stay at the tropical/colonial or beach/caribe you only get a certain number depending on how many days you stay.

I think for the Beach/Caribe for a 7 night stay it is only 2 al a cartes and you can only reserve at the restaurants over on that section.

For a 7 night stay at the Tropical/Colonial the number of al a cartes is 4. For under 7 nights it is 2. And again you can only reserve at the restaurants on that section of the resort and the ones at the Beach/Caribe (not Palace restaurants).

When I stayed at the Palace (October 200cool.gif we had unlimited al a cartes. We were there 7 nights. We could chose to make reservations at any restaurant that was open (the Beach/Caribe side was closed at the time). I think the number changes according to occupancy and your tour operator. I think it's between 4 to unlimited for a 7 night stay.

Oh boy, I can't remember which one is which now... I think we are doing the ocean scents one... we want to be able to have dinner outside or in one of the open air grills. Our wedding will probably be on the small side ( I think) but it varies on any given day :) I really didn't think I would stress this much about planning a destination wedding, but there is so much to do. The good thing is, all the beach stuff will be on sale soon for our OOT bags and centerpieces!! wooohooo smile29.gif

Hi ladies,

 

My name is Leslie and I am brand new to this thread. I hope to get a couple of hours in the next few days to comb through the thread, but in the meantime, I was wondering if someone with the wedding package information could send it to me. I have been able to find 2009 pricing for 4 of the Barcelos in the Mayan, but nothing for the Palace, and nothing for 2010. Any info you could supply me with would be hugely helpful. My email is

 

woolly007@hotmail.com

 

Thanks and happy planning!

Hey Leslie, I'm in the same boat. I was unable to find anything online that was Palace specific, most Barcelo Beach packages. So if anyone else has this information could you email it to me as well? Thanks!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
