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!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
