Thanks girls!

 

I think if you book the Palmerus, you get your choice (we had to pick between the grill and the beach at least 4 hours a head of time), once you pick it - they're both yours though!  That was another awesome part of Palmerus - if you booked the beach, the grill was the back up.

 

Mariachi Grill I think looks very similar to the Palmerus - it's further down by the Playa Azul.  Maybe you could see about having the ceremony there?   I honestly didn't really check it out.  I think they make the grills look pretty nice though, whichever one you get.

 

The only one you normally can't get, is the Coral Grill.  For one its HUGE, you would need a big wedding to make it look decent.  It's also the Japanese restaurant most nights.

Does anyone know about the Mariachi Grill? also one of our ceremony options but just wondering about the beach in that area. We would like to have the ceremony on the beach if possible...as with Avens' at the Palmeras beach...thanks!

Norma charged us $70 for bridesmaid hair and $60 for bridesmaid make up, and $250 for my hair and make up.  Because no one else in my party wanted to get their make-up done she charged an additional $100 because she does have to take the day off of work and travel to get to you.  The only downside is that does not include a "trial" of hair/makeup, so I was trusting it would just work out.  She did a phenomenal job, i didn't have a picture or anything of what i wanted, just kind of told her soft with bright eyes, and it turned out absolutely perfect! Plus, we never did get charged the 30% for using outside vendors.  Her email is nor_maccancun@hotmail.com.

Hey Ladies and Gents,

 

I was just wondering if any of you all had booked through Barcelo website and if so did they have any problems at the desk? I just read about the desk completely loosing reservations and trying to turn people away that had reservation confirmation numbers and EVERYTHING! I have had many guests book though their site and I am a nervous wreck now!! I'm hoping this was just a rare fluke and not a regular occurrence. I'm guessing I just need to make sure everyone brings all documentation of confirmation and so forth but UGH.....I'd hate for anyone to start off their vacation with a sour taste in their mouth.

Hey girls!

What flavor would you say was the best for cake? (vanilla, chocolate, pineapple, coconut, strawberry)

Working with my wedding cordinator picking out stuff for our package we are going with.  Also what instrument  did you think sounded best between the flute, saxophone, keyboard, or violin?

 

Thanks!
Kelsey

Hello,

 

I have a question for everyone. We are getting married in October and I am trying to put together a scavenger hunt for my guests to get to know one another and to get some of the people moving that really don't like the beach and drinking thing. I have been to Barcelo in the past but I have hit a wall and can't think of anything else to put on my list: (please give me any extra ideas that come to mind)

 

1. a photo of an angel

2. Build a sandcastle

3. Pic of taking a shot with a stranger

4. Pic of Mexican Flag

5. Pic of Man in speedo (2 bonus points if you are in the picture with him)

6. A pic with a Mayan god

7. Pic of you on the water bike 

 

 

I would like to come up with a bunch more things......I know Barcelo is busy and there are plenty of things to do but we thought this may be a fun thing to do maybe boys vs: girls!!!  We welcome all ideas!! Thanks!!!

We bought a sand ceremony frame rather than vase as we thought it would be easier to transport after the ceremony.  It is engraved with our names and wedding date.  Everyone loved it and thought it was unique.  None of our guests had heard of a sand ceremony and thought it was a great idea.

We had the violinist for our ceremony.  She was amazing!  We walked down the aisle to traditional music (Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring and Canon in D) and our processional was rather untraditional - All You Need is Love by the Beatles.  She did all genres of music very well.  As for cake, we chose the pineapple flavor.  It was delicious but I only had a couple of bites as I was so full after all of those courses!

I booked the photographer through the website and he had no problems. One of our guests did to, also no problems!

We had coconut and strawberry - they were both delicious!!

 

Strawberry had chunks of strawberries, so yummy.  The coconut was so creamy and yummy. Both were great.  We also used the violin and she was great.

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
