I think I'll go with flower centerpieces and bring a few of my own things. I want to keep it simple! :) Check out my email for the options I've been sent! What stage are you at?

I am using a travel agent to book our guest's trip. Through him I have learned that Barcelo will not confirm your wedding date without booking info first... They "held" our tentative date, but would not confirm it or allow us to put in the deposit to confirm the wedding without getting booking info first.... So, just a FYI, you'll have to book your trip/rooms first before you'll get your wedding date confirmed. We booked and put in a deposit for 20 rooms total for our group... And then it took another 2 weeks for the WC to get back to us about the wedding deposit and confirmation.

Sent you all the steps that I have received so far! As for booking, I did it all through my travel agent....which I'm glad I did! She secured the 30 rooms/seats on the plane and put me in contact with the wedding planner. It's been really easy since then. Replies have taken 5-14 days from the WC, but it seems to be progressing well! Hope this helps!

Don't worry girls, it may seem slow at first but everything will work out in the end! I leave in 3 days (yikes!) and I got everything done and all the questions answered in time. There are some things that can even be dealt with when you meet face to face before the wedding.

 

I know it's hard (believe me I am a planner and don't like to procrastinate) but with a destination wedding I think you really just have to go with the flow and know that it might not all happen like a "normal wedding" and especially in Mexico!

 

Good luck and happy planning :)

Ruth was my WC, they switched mine multiple times. I was to get married July 20, 2013 but I am so unhappy with the resort. Mainly Ruth. Barcelo is a beautiful resort but I just now decided to book another resort and move my entire group of 40 to Dreams Riviera Cancun last minute and it's been stressful but now my wedding has to be on the 21st. My mom Finally called Ruth bc she always so relaxed about everything and I wanted to confirm a few things. When we called she told me all the outside locations have been booked except for one, this made me so upset. She didn't even tell me anything about picking locations. They make it sound like you pick everything last minute and I was always emailing and asking questions. Then she said the back up room was the banquet room and wouldn't budge!. Which doesn't make since to pay double almost triple and if it rains to be stuck in the same room as if we paid for mint breeze. I've talked to say many helpful brides who have had beautiful weddings there and gave me great tips. When I brought anything up to Ruth she told my mom "they don't drive that way at the resort" I didn't like what I was hearing and when I said well I might change resorts to try and get her to jump a little, she said ok. As if no big deal. I had all 40/50 guest staying at the Palace so it's crazy to me that they don't care to lose the business. Also at the resort if your guest are not paying for preferred VIP, they don't get room service, they don't get premium liquor, and can only eat at the restaurants once every two nights! I thought that was a little ridiculous! Anyways best of luck to all you Brides, no matter what Barcelo is a BEAUTIFUL resort and I've seen some amazing weddings there!! But if you have Ruth, I would try to change WC.

Do you know if you have to book a minimum block of rooms before you book your wedding date?  I will be going through a travel agent, but still trying to understand how Barcelo works as far as room blocks go...  if anyone could help clarify i'd really appreciate it! :)
