            Hi everyone! I am planning my wedding at the Barcelo Maya Palace for November 10, 2012. This website has been beyond amazing with advice and ideas! I just booked my date and am beginning to work with Claudia. So, far I know we plan to have a Catholic ceremony in the chapel and I want our reception at one of the open air grills (we have the strawberry passion package). I like the looks of the Palmeras Grill and the Coral Grill. Does anyone have any recommendations for which one is best?

             

            Also - Claudia e-mailed me about the early stages for planning the ceremony and asked me to select what music I would like - Violin, flute, saxophone, or musicians (keyboard & bass). She wants me to choose one but I would kind of like to hear each before I make a decision. Can anyone offer their opinion on what they liked based on your experience??

             

            Thanks so much!!

              Palmeras grill is an option for the Strawberry Passion package, the Coral grill usually isn't.  They use it in the evenings - so I think you have to pay big bucks, or have a really large group to get the Coral Grill.

               

              I had the violinist, it was nice.  To be honest I don't even remember what they played :)

                Can someone please post a pic of the Palmeras grill? I am sure I have seen it but but I can't remember. Also, can anyone tell me what kind of room they use for the reception in the Mint Breeze Package? we haven't decided between that one or the Strawberry. We are only having  20 people so it's small but I want it to look nice.

                 

                Thanks

                    Angela,

                     

                    My advice if you have a question - go to the "search this thread" option.  Most of these pictures are from this thread.  Many a person has asked and had answers posted before us!

                     

                    Check out this thread and a few others

                    http://www.bestdesti...07/barcelo-maya

                    http://www.bestdesti...-palace-brides/ also

                    http://www.unofficia...maya.com/forum/

                     

                    Another tip to see ceremony and reception locations - go on the well known photographers websites (Del Sol, Sascha Gluck etc. and they usually have their weddings tagged by location.

                     

                    and if all else fails, just randomly googling things usually is fruitful!

                     

                    Hope that helps!

                     

                    Here are some Palmeras Grill




                    Can someone please post a pic of the Palmeras grill? I am sure I have seen it but but I can't remember.

                      Congrats! We used Claudia too, she was fantastic...quite quick with responses, never more than a couple days. Our reception was at Coral Beach, in front of the Coral Grille, was a beautiful setting, the plam trees all lit up, sound of waves crashing. Loved it...

                      For our ceremony we went with the saxaphone and they were really good. We just decided last minute when we had our meeting with Claudia. Originally we werent going to have any, but I am glad we did. When my father and I first arrived at the hall outside the gazebo, it took me a minute to realize it was for us the music was playing...it filled the halls! Highly recommend the sax...
