Did anyone ever find out if this is possible? We have a group of only 23 and would like one big table if that's possible. Do they have rectangular tables for the banquet room?

Keep Pressing for the Playa Azul area!. We had ours at the very end on May 3rd at Playa Azul and there was another wedding pretty close to us. There is room multiple weddings there and it wasn't a problem for either of our wedding parties (imo). Good luck :)

Wet first thought we wouldn't at all but ended up using the live music just at the very end as our guests were chatting etc after we walked back down the aisle to our own music. The ceremony music on the ipod during the entire ceremony went perfectly smoothly and I didn't regret it one bit. I hardly noticed the flutist that played at the very end. People said he was talented, but he didn't add much imo. They were really good at playing the music for me just as I requested. :)

We were married at Playa Azul without the palapa and although it was really far from the Palace, they shuttled everyone down there and it worked out great. The area is so beautiful and so much more private, I think it's great without the palapa also. I don't have many pics back yet, but it was gorgeous! Good luck.

Could anyone confirm for me that you can book a 2 night stay for your photographer at the barcelo instead of paying the $500 outside vendor fee?  I just wanted to confirm it was 2 nights, not 1

 

Thanks

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 would def go with the violin, I had the violin and it sounded amazing! I heard the sax during another wedding didnt compare!

I had the violin, but I can't remember at all any music playing. My guests said it was beautiful and they all cried. My wedding planner asked me when I got down there what music I wanted to be playing but I was so hungover that I said whatever. So she said the traditional songs would play... later my guests told me that after the ceremony they played "like a virgin" by Madonna! hahahaha I was pretty embarrassed! So my advice would be to pick songs!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
