Our daughter got married at the Barcelo on Saturday, April 30th. As previous brides have stated, everything was perfect! Our wedding coordinator (Gabriela) met us the day after we arrived, showed us the locations for the wedding, the cocktails, and the reception and then spent about 45 minutes with us going over details.
My daughter and her bridesmaids had pre-booked Adrian and his crew to do their hair/make-up and that was worth every penny.
The wedding was on the beach at 3:00 p.m., followed by cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the roof-top, and dinner at 6:00 p.m. in the Tule 3 banquet room The only minor complaint was the beef tenderloin (served at dinner) was over-done and tough. The rest of the meal was superb! The staff at the hotel went out of their way to make everything perfect.
Gabriela was around for every part of the day (she picked up the bridal party and brought to them to the beach in a golf cart); she liaised with the musician, the officiant, the person working the iPod music, escorted the guests to the rooftop reception and the dinner, made sure the banquet room was set up the way we wanted it, introduced us to the wait staff, showed us how to use the sound system for our music, etc., etc.
The flowers picked by the bride were beautiful, and we ordered flowers for the bridemaid's hair (all of which were delivered to the room in lots of time for the hairdresser).
The bride was totally relaxed about all the details (that's why mom is posting this because I made all the arrangements) and we can't say enough about a destination wedding being the perfect way to celebrate a relaxing day! All the guests had a great time.
