I need to contact the D.J and photographer with different pieces of information and I can't get a response either. I just send her information and hope she recieves it. I know they do this all the time so  I'm trying to use the "blind faith" method of thinking....But still I have no idea where I am as far as costs etc... I am equally frustrated!! 

Congrats on your day being so close!! That would be frustrating and I am sure it happens with most destination brides. I think the WC just assume all the last minute details will be finalized during your meeting when you get there. But I feel ya, its hard to let go and put your faith in someone to get things done that you have never even met! It will all work out and you will have your dream wedding:)

I certainly concur with Mike ....the Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe is an excellent choice for your wedding location! Wedding co-ordinator, Claudia Vaquez is worth her weight in gold, and you can relax when she's looking after your details......wishing everyone happy planning and an exceptionally perfect wedding day ahead.......Cheers !

I finally heard back from Victoria, she has changed her mind apparently as she first said I only had to pay the outside vendor fee once for my videographer and photographer and she has now said I have to pay the $500 for each vendor I have come in OR pay for 2 nights for each vendor. 

 

For any of you booking your photographer nights at the hotel it is Happy Days at the mybarcelo site if you sign up (its free) you can book them in right on the site. We are having both our photographer and his assistant as well as the videographer and his assistant stay two nights in separate rooms and the total was just under $600 for both rooms together so we are actually saving $400 by having them stay the nights instead of paying the resort for them to be there.

 

Eeeeek we will be in Mexico in all our wedded bliss two months from today!

Do you know if they are putting the palapa back? Im getting married in May and I hope it will be back by then.

I am trying not to stress out over little things. However I'm feeling a little stressed and overwhelmed

We are getting married on April 29/2013.

Our flights are booked and our date has been confirmed.

However I haven't heard back from the WC since August 28th. When she told me she would be in touch within a few days to start planning.

I understand they are EXTREAMLY busy so I am trying to get as many details on here as possible ( thanks to everyone for posting its been really helpful with a lot of my decisions )

My main concern is that we fly in on Friday and get married on Monday and Jacqueline has already told my fiance via the phone that we will only have one meeting to get everything orgainzed. So I want to go in preparded with as many details as possible.

My fiance told me to relax and wait for her to write me. What do you guys think?

Did anyone get following e-mail from Claudia?:

 

Hi,

 

There are some new policies about spa reservations, please contact the spa and let them know what services you need for you and your wedding party. As soon as you receive an answer, please send me the confirmation number to update the planning.

 

spa.gerente@barcelomaya.com

 

 

So per another new Barcelo policy , bride should figure out herself what time to make reservations for spa on the wedding day.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • 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!
