I just looked at your photos and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them , I actually got teary eyed with the photos of you two exchanging the gifts behind the wall and when your now husband was crying at the ceremony . all looked so perfect , it took away any doubts i had about what resort I had chosen . I hadn't been to the palace since 2011 and was scared it may have changed .

Your reception looked perfect , did you buy those chair sashes ? and were those table linens part of the strawberry Passion package ??

ps - your just married bikini !! great idea !!

 

take care

Thanks so much ladies! We were so 100% happy with all the decisions we made involving the wedding! Juan was fantastic to work with, I can't ask for even one more picture that I love from him...we have close to 2000!!!! We are still awaiting out video from Playawedding but the preview we saw was fantastic as well!

 

I am so excited for all the brides/grooms who have upcoming weddings at the Barcelo!

 

MrsNova - I am so excited for you that you also have Juan, he is awesome! I didn't ask or tell him anything really, I just wanted to go with whatever he caught and we got a ton of gorgeous shots! We did some with our group (he didn't post them) but they are more posed pictures with parents, each family, etc, and then the rest were just whatever he came up with. We did ask him to pull out his fish eye lens and he did that for us and captured some that way. He is fantastic at capturing important moments, for sure!!! We are picture people and agreed to do everything and anything... "climb that rock - SURE!" lol, all for pictures! It was so worth it to me!

 

For the gift exchange, Juan hadn't done this before as far as I knew and it turned out fabulous, my mom had scouted out this location just down the hall from my room so it was quick to get to and looked great! 

 

For your questions Melissa2014 - The chair sashes and linens are all from the resort and came with the strawberry package. When we initially were sent colours purple was not in the list, so I asked and sure enough they had it and sent me a pic of the colour and we went with it. Everything else on the tables were ours...the purple light up centrepieces with an organza flower on top were my creation, I also brought the purple personalized napkins as well, but they folded their white napkins in a way that incorporated the purple napkins of mine and my menu cards as well. And yup I am in Calgary - I used to be at FMC as well, now I am at the new hospital that just opened in January!

Oh and for the Just Married Bikini - it was a total DIY! I bought a $5 bathing suit bottom from walmart and then had purchased the rhinestones from an etsy seller and ironed them on myself. You can definitely get the iron on's anywhere else though, even walmart has them. We dazzled everything with them, bridal party tank tops, bathing suit bottoms, and even my white hoodie that I wore on the plane on the way down :o) So fun!

Your pictures are incredible!  I love them all!  I really liked how you were able to give gifts like that... honestly, so many things went wrong on my wedding day, and I wanted pictures like that but just couldn't get it done.  :(  I'm so glad that yours turned out!

If you don't want to bring your own, they will put what they have.

    • 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!
