Hi everyone,

 

My fiance and I have picked the Strawberry Passion package.  Our wedding coordinator (Victoria) told us we had the following options for live music during the ceremony:

-Violin

-Flute

-Saxaphone

 

We are leaning towards violin but I would like hear feedback from from any brides who have already been married at the Barcelo Maya Palace?  We are getting married in the gazebo if that matters.

 

Another option is to have my sister sing as she is a singer.  I am a little worried that her voice wouldn't carry well over the sound of background noises?  Any feedback on this would be much appreciated.

 

Thank you

Vanessa

I have the strawberry package as well, and I listening to youtube videos of all those instruments playing to cannon D, but I ended up choosing violin as I felt it sounded the best, and my wedding planner Ruth said there wasn't a problem nor an additional charge!

Has anyone else been placed in a ceremony and reception space they did not ask for? I was tols today that I have to use the beach in front of the palace. I'm pretty bummed out because I had my heart set on playa azul, but was not given any options :(
Is it your reception or ceremony there? We had our reception there as if there's rain the back up is the smaller palapas near the pool and not a banquet room. It was threatening rain on our wedding day and I was so sad that they wanted to move us to a banquet hall when I paid for a beach reception (the back up for coral beach is a hall). The area was beautiful for our reception and SO close to our rooms so it was really really nice. No wind or anything there either! I walked down to Playa Azul and it was SO far, I would chose the Palace beach over it anyway. Like someone else commented the beaches are secluded at night, people that walk by done disturb you and you cnt even see them anyways. We danced closest to the water, furthest from the pathway, and we couldn't even tell there were people near if there were.

I have been trying to get a hold of the wedding coordinator at the resort to see if the date I'm wanting is available and the extra pricing options but I can't find a direct email address and have emailed the resort and basic Barcelo wedding email several times with no response form the wedding coordinator. I want to get everything going to help out my guests so they'll have extra time to save up and plan. If anyone can provide me with an email address of the wedding coordinator at Barcelo maya that would be great! I can't wait to get everything figured out, this seems like it would be the perfect resort. Thank you! 

Hi Rani,

It takes about a week or so to get a response back from the generic email. Just be patient. They work on the Brides who have confirmed their wedding dates ( meaning that they have booked the hotel and have submitted their Itinerary as confirmation)

 

 My fiance is in management for CheapCarribbean.com, best prices and no hassle travel. They can book your wedding guests from start to finish in one package prices including transportation and excursions. Check them out on-line. I had a friend who used at TA with Apple and they were AWFUL! The entire group was quoted different prices on the SAME DAY that others booked.When I wrote the TA she literally said in an email that "if she honored that price she would not be making any money." On the day before we left for  the trip we found out that she booked my fiance and I as "stand by" (we booked our airfare in March 2012 and the wedding was in June 2012.

 

I know things don't always go smoothly,but this was a huge oversight! Perhaps others have had better luck but this left a sour taste in my mouth!

We choose the guitar and bass. Orginally my WC gave me those options but then I had heard their was an option for guitar and I asked and she said yes. They could play pretty much anything and I honestly didn't even hear it because I played a song for the BM and me to walk to down the aisle on my iPod but my husband said they were good.

 

I would think singing with a microphone would be fine and any of the choices would be pretty :)

Ladies,

Did anyone get married at the arch? I'm just wondering how long it takes to walk down the aisle! We're picking the song to walk down the aisle to but I have NO IDEA what the length of the aisle is. Where do you come out of? How far is it to the arch? Help please!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
