I need to contact the D.J and photographer with different pieces of information and I can't get a response either. I just send her information and hope she recieves it. I know they do this all the time so  I'm trying to use the "blind faith" method of thinking....But still I have no idea where I am as far as costs etc... I am equally frustrated!! 

    Congrats on your day being so close!! That would be frustrating and I am sure it happens with most destination brides. I think the WC just assume all the last minute details will be finalized during your meeting when you get there. But I feel ya, its hard to let go and put your faith in someone to get things done that you have never even met! It will all work out and you will have your dream wedding:)

        I certainly concur with Mike ....the Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe is an excellent choice for your wedding location! Wedding co-ordinator, Claudia Vaquez is worth her weight in gold, and you can relax when she's looking after your details......wishing everyone happy planning and an exceptionally perfect wedding day ahead.......Cheers !

          I finally heard back from Victoria, she has changed her mind apparently as she first said I only had to pay the outside vendor fee once for my videographer and photographer and she has now said I have to pay the $500 for each vendor I have come in OR pay for 2 nights for each vendor. 

           

          For any of you booking your photographer nights at the hotel it is Happy Days at the mybarcelo site if you sign up (its free) you can book them in right on the site. We are having both our photographer and his assistant as well as the videographer and his assistant stay two nights in separate rooms and the total was just under $600 for both rooms together so we are actually saving $400 by having them stay the nights instead of paying the resort for them to be there.

           

          Eeeeek we will be in Mexico in all our wedded bliss two months from today!

            Do you know if they are putting the palapa back? Im getting married in May and I hope it will be back by then.

                I am trying not to stress out over little things. However I'm feeling a little stressed and overwhelmed

                We are getting married on April 29/2013.

                Our flights are booked and our date has been confirmed.

                However I haven't heard back from the WC since August 28th. When she told me she would be in touch within a few days to start planning.

                I understand they are EXTREAMLY busy so I am trying to get as many details on here as possible ( thanks to everyone for posting its been really helpful with a lot of my decisions )

                My main concern is that we fly in on Friday and get married on Monday and Jacqueline has already told my fiance via the phone that we will only have one meeting to get everything orgainzed. So I want to go in preparded with as many details as possible.

                My fiance told me to relax and wait for her to write me. What do you guys think?

                  I haven't heard that they are going to put it back, but I'll be there in 13 days to check out all of the reception locations, so I'll let you know what I find out.

                      Did anyone get following e-mail from Claudia?:

                       

                      Hi,

                       

                      There are some new policies about spa reservations, please contact the spa and let them know what services you need for you and your wedding party. As soon as you receive an answer, please send me the confirmation number to update the planning.

                       

                      spa.gerente@barcelomaya.com

                       

                       

                      So per another new Barcelo policy , bride should figure out herself what time to make reservations for spa on the wedding day.
