    Lillian is my WC .... the last few days I have probably send her 10 emails. I really do not understand why it takes so long to respond! Our wedding is at 5pm at coral beach, where is yours?

      As far as I know from everything I have read you have to have the Strawberry Passion package to have a beach reception. No upgrades for the beach reception. I just read on the wedding packages attachment for 2013 that no outside photographers are allowed. Please please please someone who has been married there in 2013 tell me that this is not the case. I have read about the $500 outside vendor fee and have been prepared to book rooms for my photographer. I never noticed that little aside on the package lise until now (and I booked and put the deposit for my photographer this week!!)

          You can book outside photographer but you have to book them a room. I just spoke with Ruth yesterday and I told her that I hired an outside photographer and she told me that I needed to book him at least 2 nights at the resort. The thing is.... there is a 3 night minimum so I am not sure why she told me 2 nights?  I asked her but she hasnt got back to me....

            Thanks for the info - I might have to go with the strawberry passion. Would really like to do dinner on the beach :)

                My Wedding Planner is Lillian who is AMAZING.  I'm getting married on June 20th 2013.  At first I was getting my package with Air Transit ( the "Bliss" Package) and Lillian confirmed that you CAN add stuff to your package such as having you reception outdoors but there is an additional cost per person.  The extra cost does change depending on the package you want.  I ended up switching my package to the Mint Breeze as it was the most cost effective for my fiance and I. As much as we really really wanted to have our reception outdoors we didn't want to spend the extra money on it only to have it canceled due to weather conditions.  If that were to happen you don't get the money back you spent to have the outdoor wedding. Send an email to your planner and ask her how much it would cost per person and she'll definitely let you know.

                 

                Congrats on your upcoming wedding and I hope the information above helped.

                  You cannot upgrade from Barcelo packages to outdoor venues, as far as I've been told and heard from others. If you were having an Air Transat package that is different, it's not a Barcelo package so the rules aren't the same. As for outside photographers, the 2011 and 2012 packages explaining the wedding packages offered also stated no outside photographers and they allowed them for the fee/rooms booked.

                    Hello Past and Future Barcelo Brides!

                     

                    I love this thread and there were a TON of very informational tips and advices. I'm planning a May 2014 destination wedding for Barcelo. I'm still getting quotes from my TA so it's not set in stone yet.

                     

                    Is any bride getting married on May 2014? If so I was thinking did anyone want to split the Photographer two night fee? I'm thinking of an outside vendor but not sure yet til my airfare/resort is book yet. Once that is book I'll have to decide on the date and will have to coordinate. You're welcome to PM me if you're interested and we can see if our dates will work.

                     

                    Thanks!

                      I got married on the 14th of January - we had photographers, videographers, florists, DJ all come from outside.  They also had that notice in the 2012 package.  You can do the $500 fee or book 2 nights for your photographer.  

                       

                      You are fine with your photographer.
