It's quite a long video, but if you jump to 10:45 it captures their reception which was held at the chichen itza banquet room.

          I have questions for some of you brides that already got married. How did you pay for the wedding? In advance, travelers checks, credit card? I know credit cards charge international fees...just wondering if anyone had ideas on the best suggested method??

          Let me know thank you!

            Anyone use Barcelo DJ? We have him booked but downloaded all our own music. My FI just wanted to have someone else run the show.

              Someone posted pics of her reception at the new location on the Unofficial Barcelo Maya website. I am doing a site visit in January, so I'll ask Claudia to show me the new location and will take some pics and post them!

                Has anybody seen/gotten the fire dancers? Is it worth it? I believe it's $1300 for 45 minutes? Is that correct

                  Great to see someone else getting married around the same date. Planning is going okay. I still haven't received the menu yet and can't decide if I want to pay the extra for the reception in an outside grill Getting a little stressed but I know it'll all come together. How is your planning going?

                  I know...I still haven't received the menu yet either! Though I did find it on one of the pages on this site. Did you get yours? I decided to do the Strawberry Passion package. Gee I hope the weather turns out for the both of us. We got the photographer booked and are trying to finalize a few things with Gabriela but she never gets back to us. It's very frusturating.

                  I heard that the hotel has a docking station for an iphone so you can use that for your music set-up. We only have 20 guests, and I thought that would be good enough. So, I am trying to find out if the docking station will take also an iphone or if it has to be an ipod.

                  We are getting quite excited and can't wait to hit the sun and beach. Any new developments with you?

I still didn't get an answer as to whether some ppl can have meat while others have fish etc., so I hope it works out.

                    Also, since I can't have sparklers at my wedding, I decided to go for a funny pinata at the rehersal/welcome dinner. Have any of you ladies done this? Is it too cheesy? I was thinking about putting practical things in for the adults (gift cards) in addition to funny toys and candy for the little and big kids, lol.

                    I'm just wondering if it's something I can easily find when I get down there, or if I should start planning on ordering one here and taking it with. Thoughts? Ideas?

                    Oh! One last thing. I know a lot of the brides are having a DJ. I think I am going the ipod route. Has anyone done that and/or been to a wedding that had only the ipod?
                    Hi: I'm just curious if you have found our any information regarding the pinata? I think that sounds like a great idea! I'm sure it would go off well with everyone. :)
