Thanks! maybe we will get lucky as well.  Either way, it will only be 2 of our guests so not a big deal.  Congrats on your marriage by the way! Your photos are beautiful!  Where did you have the ceremony?  I am deciding between Coral beach and the beach in front of Tropical (not sure of the name).

I'd like the ceremony at the Playa Azul because it is more secluded, no men in speedos, haha.

 

We're on step 3 of the planning already, reception, but we're still 9 months away, not everyone has decided if they're coming or not, so I can't really make a seating plan. I know that you go over everything in a meeting the day after you arrive, so is this just to humour us? Make us feel like we're planning? lol Did you feel the same?

 

For the ceremony location I just said "on the beach" I suppose I should ask what the options are and be more specific. 

I emailed my WC Lillian and she sent me photos of some of the options for the ceremony.  I can send them to you if you would like.  She sent photos of coral beach and the beach in front of tropical (unsure of which beach it is).

On the coco beach we had lights on trees and it was beautiful too! It is just a minute or two walk from the Coral Beach. And the back up for there is the palapa where the ping pong tables are. Playa Azul for me was too far and wide open with no trees to light up, which I really wanted. The seating arrangements are super easy for them to set up and change, it's honestly no big deal!

 

You should definitely ask about where your ceremony and reception locations are, they never have me a choice and had placed me at Coral (which I was pleased with anyway) but if you have a preference you should ask as they may be planning several weddings on your date. There were apparently 4 occurring on our wedding day! We never saw anyone else married that day though.

My fiance really likes the idea of the trees and lights too, which I think would be beautiful too, after further review, I agree the playa azul is too far and I never thought about it being open and plain, totally makes sense, an area with trees would be better. And I think the coral beach for the ceremony would be nice too! 

 

Did you have to pay for the lights in the trees? I remember they were on every night when we stayed at the Palace in 2009.

I was under the impression we had to pay $5 per tree to be lit up but at Coral they always are there and lit up so when we moved locations I was ready to pay but they never charged us. As for the day pass, that's great if they don't catch it!

Hey ladies,

 

I am back from my wedding at the Barcelo and it was everything I hoped it would be plus some. We had 97 people in total join us for our spectacular day! It was amazing and beautiful and I wouldn't have changed a thing. Barcelo is such an incredible resort to get married at. My husband and I were busy this last week moving into our new home, but stay tuned, I will post my review soon. And as soon as I get my professional photos I will share those as well.

Greetings,

 

I am less 2 weeks away from my wedding at the Barcelo Palace on July 23rd.  Everything is ready for my OOT bags with the exception of a welcome letter/itinerary.  If it is not too much to ask, could a few people please email me their welcome letter/package/itinerary so I have an idea of what information should be included?  I keep having this feeling like I am going to forget something important.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

$5 per tree isn't bad, i'll pay that. 

 

My fiance likes the idea of where the Coco beach is, so we've decided on that for ceremony and reception, he doesn't want to risk them putting us in a banquet hall. And we kinda thought if the reception was at the coral beach, tons of people would be walking by to go for dinner, as all the restaurants are up there, but the coco beach area is a bit more quiet at that time of night. 

 

Do you have a photo of what your reception looked like? Or did you have a link to where you posted it. Sometimes I find the 400+ pages very overwhelming and hard to sift through, so I apologize if you've already posted it.

Yay congrats on getting close! My wedding is the 29th! Do you have everything planned for the details there? I feel like I still have some things up in the air and don't know if that is "normal"

FireyNurse, you had your reception at Coral beach or Coco beach? I didn't know that there was a "coco" beach. I wasn't really given any options when it came to locations. Also, there is a picture on here of you and your bridal party toasting in a room. Do you mind me asking what that was for? Cocktail hour? Beginning reception? I saw a speaker in the picture so I was wondering what part of your wedding this was. Thanks!

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
