FutureMrs.D,

 

I had asked Claudia about the locations available for the Strawberry Passion package and she told me the following:

 

"At the Palace we have three options of location for dinner reception on the beach, those can be the Coral Beach, the Palmeras Beach or the Palmeras Grill restaurant"

 

Does anyone have photos of these spots they could share? I want to see what they look like so I can put the reception location on hold. I've already told her I want to hold my ceremony in the gazebo, since I didn't want to show up and have it already booked by someone else and be disappointed.

 

Thanks!

 

Steph

Is this supposed to be decided before you get there or only once you meet with the WC?

Sounds good. I'll request them from Claudia as well and see what I can come up with.

 

I really wish they would come up with a section on the Barcelo Maya's website with wedding information, photos, etc. That would be so helpful and would probably give them more business. Wishful thinking! Thank goodness we have this website to help!

I emailed Gabriella yesterday to ask for pictures of the locations, so I will post them if(when) she sends them to me.

I cant wait to see the pics! I am still so confused why if they are inside you have to pay for the outdoor beach reception...can anyone help me to understand this?

We want an indoor reception...a/c for dancing, but would like to be close to the beach

Any idea what are costs are going to be?

Thanks!

Hey girls! I am leaving for the Palace on Saturday!!! I am soooooo excited! I can't wait to see the resort & I promise I will take lots of pictures! I am also so excited to meet with Claudia (I have already set up an appointment)...I want to try to get as much planning done as possible when I am down there. Any suggestions or ideas on what I should get done while I'm down there?

This is what I have come up with so far:

-food tasting & choose menu

-pick cake

-flowers

-centerpieces

-observe wedding

-observe DJ

-check out possible reception sites & cocktail hour sites

 

Is there anything specific that maybe I could help any of you with? I know I'm going to take picks of anything & everything & check out the different restaurants as well. Just let me know!

I don't think the 2010 menu for the dinners has been published yet -- maybe you could see if you could get an early copy??

 

Have a great trip!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
