So instead we opted to have our legalities here which is basically just signing some paperwork at town hall with a witness a couple weeks before. We'll consider our wedding THE DAY of course because that's when we're exchanging our vows and I'm wearing my beautiful gown :)

Hi Brandy!!! Is my wedding day the date you're arriving? That is not creepy at all, lol. You're more than welcome to sneak by and catch a glimpse :) Welcome to the site, you're going to love it!! There is sooooooooooooooooooooo much great information! Good luck with all your planning :) I'm in the midst of painting maracas, lol. How exciting!
Hey Sandra!! Where did you get the maracas?? Do you think it will be too much to bring down to Mexico or is this for an event you are planning at home??

    Hi!!!!! I ordered them from Genuine Maracas - PartyMart: party supplies

    They came painted, but I'm priming them and painting over them (handle in all) in orange (our wedding color) and freehanding a floral pattern. They are actually real wood and a nice size. The paint job is horrible though! But for a little over $1 a piece, they were worth it! Yes, we'll be taking them down with us. Well, either us or one of our parents. We are only planning on around 40 guests and each will get 1 at their place setting during dinner. I was going to have them during our ceremony, but 1. i'm afraid the kids will start shaking them like crazy and 2. we decided we wanted petals for everyone to throw instead. If you need help with anything or have any questions, let me know!

      anyone have a better email address to contact the WC's ? I'm using weddings@barcelomaya.com and haven't gotten a response to my initial inquiry yet.
      Thanks

        Oh oh, don't use that email! That one goes directly to Ana, who is the senior coordinator in the department, and she has a tendency to take FOREVER to answer. Each WC has a distinct email. I just called yesterday and got the email directly to Xhail. I will wrangle up the phone number at some point today (FI has my car with my wedding folder in it.)

            I would try weddings3@barcelomaya.com that one goes to Xhail. I emailed her the other day and she got right back to me. I'm pretty sure that Gabriella is weddings2@barcelomaya.com, but don't quote me on that.

                Maybe a silly question, but what is the big difference between the Palace and the Tropical
                Thanks

                  Laura,
                  They are different parts of the resort. The Palace is a bit more upscale (all suites), and is situated away from the rest of the buildings on the property, also at the Palace you have access to the Tropical, Colonial, Beach, and Caribbe. If you stayed at the tropical you would not have access to the Palace.
                  Both are very nice properties, though, and they both have different reasons that they're appealing. The tropical has a bit of a better beach, and is closer to all of the water sports.

                    Can anyone post the dollar amounts of the Under the Stars and Oceans Scents package for 2009? I have emailed the wedding coordinators there a few days ago and have heard no response so far (which is normal from what I read). I tried going on the Unofficial Barcelo Maya website, but it only has 2008 package prices.

                    Thanks,

                    Steph
