Did most of your guests stay at the Palace or at one of the other resorts?  Were you able to see everyone and hang out during the day?  

Hi! We are getting married on the beach. I was originally going to do the Gazebo but I did hear that it is near everything and not that private. We also have 10 bridesmaids/groomsmen and over 60 people coming and I think that area is too small for that big of a group.  All of our guests have booked at the Palace. Our wedding isnt until Nov 11th = )

Here's a question regarding outside vendors...

 

If people were wondering...I just booked an outside DJ, Discomovil (WAY cheaper then the resorts btw), and if you use their generator ($200) you do NOT have to pay an outside DJ fee. Their deposit was only $100 as well...kind of nice. We also booked an outside photographer, Ivan Luckie (his work is awesome)...and our option, like stated in here before, was paying either a fee of $500 or paying for a room for 2 nights (at ANY Barcelo resort). Obviously if you book at Barcelo Maya Beach, this option is quite a bit cheaper...around $300ish. So we are going with that option...however, I know this room is "supposed to" be for the photographer to use (right?)...but how does the photographer know if you paid the fee or booked the room stay? Couldn't one of my family member use that room we paid for? My step-dad is recently unemployed and I'm worried about how he'll be able to get to my wedding on a strict budget...this would help him if I paid for two of his nights with this room...does that make sense? What did other people do with that room they booked for the outside vendor? Did their photographers want to use it? Let me know! Thanks girls!

 

Also, if anyone wants more info on either the DJ or photographer let me know!

 

I'm working with Xhail right now in finalizing plans...including the dinner options, cake options, timing of events etc. She's been helpful, but yes, she takes awhile to answer your emails! So I have a lot of other information I can share if someone would like it!

You can put your wedding date on hold without your room booked then once you book your room your wedding date is actually reserved.

We are going with the Blueberry package and adding on the beach reception/dinner because we don't really need all the extra stuff in the Strawberry Package.  I asked my WC (Xhail) what happens when the weather turns and if we can be put somewhere under shelter outside instead of the banquet room, and she replied no...that the back-up is a banquet room and the extra cost of the beach dinner in NON-refundable.  This is a bummer.... :( Also - she forwarded me the "Banquet Room Menu" and I'm not exactly sure if there is a "Beach Reception Menu"?? Does anyone know if this is there are different menus?
Hi ArtisticBride, can you let me know what the cost was to upgrade to the beach reception? I haven't chosen a wedding package yet since I'm hoping to be able to upgrade one of the cheaper packages to a beach reception. Thanks!!!

We had a photographer and videographer and were going to have to pay two $500 fees so we got rooms at the beach for them and they both used the rooms we purchased them. The photographer definitely made sense for him as we had a TTD the next morning too! I am not sure how it would work for your photographer if they didn't use the room and someone else did my guess is you'd have to buy them day passes or else they couldn't be on the property for the wedding. When they use the room they are given all inclusive bracelets. If you went the day pass route while also purchasing a room for two nights you are looking at aprroximately $500 cost as the room may only be $300 but each day pass is $95 or $97 and photographers often come with an assistant.
