    Hi ladies,

    So I got a copy of the menu for the Tropical from Xhail and we get to pick ONE of each item which I think is totally bogus. Did anyone get more options then this? I dont like the idea of picking just one main course because I may want Beef Tenderloin but will everyone? Eek.

    Here is the menu she sent me:

    Hey girls- how were the wedding cakes?? I already had a tasting when we were down there & showed Claudia a picture of what I wanted & she said it was no problem.....but I never actually saw one of their cakes (we just had small ones). Are they decorated nicely? ...or should I stick to a simple design?

      Here are a couple of shots of Roxy and John's cake. Not super fancy but SO delicious!

            The Carey Bar (Palace lobby bar) is probably your best bet- it has both indoor (A/C) and outdoor seating.

              Here's a picture of our cake- we only requested a 1 tier (included in the Strawberry passion package) but somehow they brought out a 2 tier free of charge. We were the only ones who even ate a piece. We didn't really care for the vanilla and wish we would have picked another flavor. I think they use the same flowers that were in the bouquet.

                We've hired Del Sol (yeah!!!) to do our wedding day photography, and our wedding coordinator just told us we could either pay for the photographers to stay at the hotel for 2 nights, or pay the $300 fee to excuse us from hiring the photographer they have a contract with. So seems to me to be an option and not necessarily the Barcelo changing policies. BUT... alternatively (third option!!), we may be able to have these requirements waived if we their photographer to do a trash the dress session and a wedding video. Haven't decided what makes the most economic sense just yet!
