    Oh you rock my socks off...you've just saved me another 45 minutes on the phone with the Barcelo arguing to get a WC to talk to me. Thank you dear!

        FI and I are still going back and forth about which package we are going to go with. I'm kind of leaning towards the Mint Breeze package, because we really don't need to spend a great deal of money on a reception down in Mexico when there are only in the ballpark of 20 people going, and we're having a big AHR when we get home.
        That being said, I didn't want to go with the Blueberry Dream package, because I still want to be able to have a private dinner with my guests, so I don't feel like we're being put on display like animals in a zoo in one of the a la cartes (I have really bad social anxiety, so these are the types of things that I worry about).
        Another thing that I had looked into doing, but I think we're going to forego is doing the free coconut wedding, and then just renting a catamaran and doing a dinner on there with all of our guests, rather than being in a banquet hall or on th beach. This looked like a great idea on paper, but when we looked in to it, it was going to cost us in the range of 6,000 just to do a decent dinner for us and our guests and to be out for a fair amount of time...just not realistic for us when we're fresh out of school and still paying off debts.
        Other than the ceremony itself I've been woking quite a bit on some possible excursion ideas in leui of a welcome dinner the first night our guests arrive. We're a bit more of an unconventional couple, so this is something that I think will be a bit more appropriate for our circumstances.
        I've got quite a bit more notes here, but I don't want to bore you. I'd be happy to give you some idea though, and help in any way I can!

            Hi everyone!
            We've just put a date on hold for the Barcelo Maya Palace for our wedding!
            I have a quick question. I just got an email saying that we have to be in Mexico for 3 days (not including arrival date, Sunday and wedding date) prior to getting married for a non-legal ceremony. My concern is we were planning to arrive on Sat April 10, and get married on Wed. April 14. Gabriela said it was ok, does anyone know if this will be a problem?
            Thanks so much!! Looking forward to getting to know all of you!

              You should be fine with that! The wedding coordinators are good at what they do, and as long as they've approved it you have nothing to worry about!

                First of all, thank you all so much for all your helpful information in re Barcelo!!! This was thrown into the mix as one of my options, and seeing as how I have a march 2010 date, I need to get a move on!!!

                Could someone please email or PM me the price list? For some reason I can't view it.

                Thanks!

                    Thanks! I saw that, but then for some reason didn't know if the full document had more information (i.e. whether a photographer was provided etc.)
