I attached our welcome booklet that had a schedule and wedding timeline (if you can't open attachments PM and ill send it to you). We didn't schedule too much because we want our guests to have their own vacation and people got in at different times/days, otherwise I think it would have been great to set up a welcome dinner or something.

I love the welcome Mrs. Nova.  Did any past brides use the hotel transporation (private or shared)?  I am specifically wondering about the shared.  We have some single women and older people flying along and I wanted to know if it was easy to find the correct vehicle.  Did they have name signs or company signs?  I would hate to have people get in the wrong vehicle.  Anyone use car seats?  I am going to call about the car seats because I hate to bring them down for only the transfers.  With less than three months away it is getting stressful!!  So excited!

Hi Brides! I'm having some guests that are not staying at the Barcelo hotels. The WC is telling me that I have to pay $500 for them plus the dinner??! Has anyone encountered this problem?

I am having my wedding at the Barcelo Maya Palace on May 24 (or 31st), 2014 - but having a little trouble understanding add-ons for the packages.  I am choosing the Mint Breeze package, and it says that each additional person over 20 is a charge of $27 per person.  This may be a dumb question, but does anyone know if that is just for them to attend the ceremony or is that including their attendance at the reception as well?

From my understanding this would include the ceremony AND reception. Overall the duration of the wedding.

The $500 is for Vendors such as a photographer and a videographer. As for the guests only to attend the wedding it's $77 per person. Here is the information: http://www.unofficial-barcelo-maya.com/userfiles/file/FAQ.pdf

Julie I forgot to add the $77 is just the day pass. If you exceed your wedding package people then it's another $27 or $66 per person for the wedding reception. So you're paying two fee's for outside guests.

For all you brides getting married in May next year warn your guests not to wait too late to book the hotel! The Palace is all full for this May (1st-8th) and I still have guest that have booked flights but no hotel, now they have to stay at one of the other Barcelo's. Plus prices sky rocketed after we booked and never went back down... for all those people that think they can wait for last minute deals! Doesn't happen for this hotel!

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
