Hey morenaindc , I'm sorry if I might've missed it but what do you mean when you say that the grill is not available for your reception? Is it possible for someone to book so far out in advance or the grill is just not available for receptions anymore? How many grills do they have? I know of 2 - the Coral Grill and the Mariachi Grill. Neither are available? sad.gif

Oh and by the way, I'm getting married at the Barcelo Colonial in May 2009. eblum999, I noticed that you're from New Jersey - me too!! What part? I'm kinda new to this forum thing and I have tons of questions about getting married in Mexico so I'm looking forward to lots of responses when I start posting more questions soon! ;-)

My WC is at a site visit in Mexico this week, and is reserving our reception spot!!!!! It's on the beach, yet has accessible rest-rooms close by for the guests. I'll post when I know exactly where it is! I'm getting sooo excited!

The grill at the palace no longer available for receptions?? That sux! sad.gif I think you're talking about the Coral Grill. I hope they don't convert the Mariachi Grill to an a la carte restaurant as well! Davematthews16, how you describe the beach reception location is great! Would you happen to have any pics of what that area looks like?

eblum999, it's great to know someone else from Jersey getting married at the Barcelo. ;-) I'm in the northern area in Bergen County. Feel free to pm me for anything :)

Davematthews16, I would love more information about the reception site you are using. I didn't really think about the reception venues already being booked with other weddings the day of my wedding, Jan. 24. Let me know if you have pictures or maybe a more exact location. Thanks!

I would be more than happy to show you pictures when I get them! She will be back in town in a couple of days. The Barcelo also created a DVD of the flower options, ect. That she was going to bring back for me and make a copy. She'll also be visiting the Barcelo in September, so if anyone has any questions you are having trouble with, please let me know.

Yeah, I would love to see pics of that beach reception site. Also, does anyone have pics on what the set up looks like for the COCKTAIL HOUR on the beach? I'm getting the Ocean Scents wedding package which includes the "set up" fee for this but would like to know what is actually provided. If anyone can post pics or pm me I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
