beachbride22 we are getting married 2 days before you! Maybe we will see you down there :D It's coming up really quick now, we leave in a week. I can't wait!

I made a lot of my own decorations that I am bringing with us (place cards etc). I wanted to save money where I could and I also didnt want anythign too bulky for carrying on the plane. 

We also have some guests who are not staying at the palace, but we are still planning to have 'cocktail hour' at the carey bar. I guess we will have to wait and see what they say, but it is my understanding that the guests are granted a day pass to the palace for the wedding.

There are a few of them. I had Xhail for all of my planning. She was on vacation the week of my wedding so I ended up with Grecia who was amazing.

 

This is Xhail's email: weddings3@barcelomaya.com

Thanks for the advice :)  Yes, I agree- placecards are a must.  What other sorts of decorations did you bring down?  I have a lot of ideas- but I don't want my suitcase to be overloaded!  Did you bring any lightweight items that helped the decoration process?  I am not sure how much decorations are provided except centerpieces that I pick out.

How exciting!!  What time are you getting married on the 26th?  Is it on the beach?  It's coming up soon!  You must be going down there for 2-3 weeks since you're leaving next week already.  That will be so nice!

What other decorations are you bringing besides placecards?  I've seen the cutest ideas online for DIY crafts, but I don't know if I'll have room in my suitcase.  Do you know how much decoration Barcelo provides?  From what I can tell, it's just centerpieces.

By the way- i posted a couple of other threads but they're being held for "moderation" because I'm new.


I need ideas for LIGHTWEIGHT deocroations on a plane... it's a lot harder than I thought! 

 

Yes, we plan on doing welcome packages... but we also have wedding party gifts we'll be giving out.  What kinds of things are you guys bringing for welcome packages?  We really want to do Bubba Kegs, but we don't know if there will be enough room in our suitcase for everything.  I also wanted to have a little "print off" of everything going on...not so much an itinerary- just something people can reference to and know what time everything is, and where! (rehearsal dinner, wedding, appointments, etc)

Hey Can you tell me who you used as travel agent? looks like you got a pretty good deal when you arranged your travel, 71 guest and all willing to stay at the palace! Im so nervous to give my guests the rates!! I feel like they will think its too much cry.gif I really hope im wrong tho. the resort is gorgeous and has so much to offer for everyone. i love that

My travel agents name is Marci. I'll private message you her info. 

 

Her travel agency has a rep working at the Palace so she definitely gets whatever you need. She's also great because her philosophy is "whenever your guests are ready to book, have them compare all of the travel sites for the best deal that day and I'll match it". There are a few advantages to this:

 

1. Everyone books under one group meaning you'll get credit towards free rooms

2. Your guests are booking when it's convenient for them

3. Your guests are guaranteed the best rate they can find on that particular day.

4. You have the travel protection of using a travel agent. If you're not happy with something you can call her and she'll take care of it.

 

We also just used her for our honeymoon in St. Lucia. She got us an upgraded room for the price of a standard room.

 

Tell her Dan and Jamie sent you!

I'm very excited!  We finally decided on the Barcelo Maya Palace last weekend and got our confirmation today!  We've been engaged since September 2011 and did a site visit (among many) in January... and now we're finally getting somewhere! January 14, 2013!!  

 

I've read so much already, so thank you for those who have contributed!  It helped make my decision.

    • 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
