    Barcelo seems to like to change their policies, but usually it is just a two night minimum stay. We had no problems the last time we were there.

      New bride here! Considering the Barcelo Maya Colonial for an April wedding. From what I've seen so far, it sounds perfect.

                Ashley,

                Regarding the TTD, if you are worried about your dress, just get a long white sundress and wear that instead. It is the interaction between you and your new husband that is the main focus. Regarding feeling rushed, just make sure you have a photographer that will give you a good amount of time to do it, and schedule for the afternoon so you can sleep in and chat with any guests who are leaving that day. The BIGGEST thing about preserving your dress if you do decide to wear it for your TTD session is to soak it in the bathtub as soon as you get back to the resort. Soak, let the water go, fill it again, etc. The worst thing for the dress is the salt water, so just make sure to get that out before you get home. Barcelo has those handy cloths dryers on the decks and balconies, so you should be able to get it dried out on that no problem. A good drycleaner should be able to take care of any stains and honestly, when are you going to need it again? I know some girls are sentimental and want it for their daughters or whatever, but did you want to wear your mom's dress?? Mine is squished in our spare room closet!

                Regarding photographers, lots of girls have posted on this (very long!) thread and don't forget to check out the vendor marketplace. People can post their packages on there, some with the amount of images you receive.

                :) Michelle

                  I'm going to have a breakfast in the morning of our wedding for my wedding party girls, Mom's and close friends that are going to Mexico. I was going to call it the Bridal Breakfast. Is that cute or dorky? Where should I have it? I never went to breakfast when I was there! I went straight to the beach at 8am and then ate at the beachside grills when they opened. I did that for an entire week. :) ahhh, the beach life. Anyway, most of my guests are at the Tropical or Colonial, so where should we do breakfast? Here is what my invitation says so far:

                  To: The Mother of the Bride
                  From: the Bride
                  What: Bridal Breakfast
                  When: Saturday, July 3 ~ 9:00am
                  Where: ?
                  Why: to start the wedding day off with some fun

                  Suggestions

                      Me too!!!! That is a great idea,very thoughtful. What time are you getting married? If I am getting married at 4 what time would you think that everyone should be in the salon to get there hair done?
