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! :)

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
