Hi everyone!

I'm brand new here, but have kept an eye on this thread for quite some time. Now I figure its time for me to join in on the fun ;) I am getting married at Barcelo Maya palace on August 1st this year and we are so excited. Out ceremony is at 6pm on Palmeras Beach, cocktail hour at 7pm same place, and then the reception is at Palmeras Grill at 8pm. I have a couple of questions for you experts! I keep seeing that there is a cut off deadline for guests to book by?? My WC has said nothing about this, but it seems as though it would be VERY important for me to know... Can you ladies tell me if you have been given a deadline for guests to book their stays? That seems odd to me... I would be willing to pay for extra for anyone who decides to come last minute and I don't want to have to tell me guests that they must book by a certain date!! Thanks everyone!

Hi and congratulations! If I'm not mistaken the brides that talk about a booking deadline are those who have a room block through their travel agents. There isn't a deadline given by the resort/wedding planner. Hope that helps!

This thread has been so helpful!!  We're definitely going with the strawberry package as we want an outside reception.  Does anyone have any details from the wedding coordinators on this package and the "extras" (tree lighting, centerpieces, ect) that they could share?  My email is kristen112808@yahoo.com.  Thank you so much! :)

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
