I originally requested Coral Beach for ceremony and Playa Azul for reception. I emailed my photographer for advice and he suggests I flip the locations around.
My DJ package includes a projection screen and light up dance floor. Can anyone tell me if I will have enough room for this at Coral Beach if I decide to change the reception location? I'm nervous will the amount of people (estimating 40-50) and setup I won't have enough space. I would prefer everyone to be comfortable and not be squashed together.
Anyone else think the locations are better flipped than what I originally requested? It's hard to make decisions based on pictures.
-Q2, Does Barcelo allow any type of wish lanterns? I've seen pictures from past brides but I'm not sure if they have changed there rules? I know a lot of other resorts have banned them.
-Q3, I'm getting married in May, anyone suggest what month I should mail out the invitations. I recently sent out STD's in June. Also, what should I make the RSVP month? I don't know how long in between I should send them out. I don't want to be constantly sending people mail about my wedding and have people overwhelmed.
We are having both our wedding and reception at Playa Azul because it is more secluded than Coral Beach, but Coral Beach is closer to the resort. In order to get to Playa Azul, they transport your guests in a bus and you in a golf cart style thing. I have attended one wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace and it was also on Playa Azul. For me, Coral Beach was too close to the other resort guests and I wasn't excited about potential strangers walking through (even though I've heard you don't notice at all). Playa Azul seems like it has more than enough room for the dance floor and screen, but I don't know about the spacing at Coral Beach. I think I would stick to your set up of getting married at Coral Beach and doing the reception at Playa Azul.
