We now are both with my bank because of the ease for travel and cheap cost for international bank machine use.

    Yes, I agree... all banks are different so future brides should check with their banks.  The exchange rates are great - just be aware of the fees.  We called our banks before and still had issues when we got there.  We did, however, use a capitol one which apparently does not have any foreign transaction fees - but double check just to make sure.  We also used our delta card to max out on miles.  It was our debit cards that seemed to charge the most fees - if I remember right and both were wells fargo visa cards.

    Me too!!!! Ugh we are going to look like drug dealers haha!! The wedding package, photographer, hair/makeup and officiant adds up to a lot of cash to be carrying. I'm sure we would get the best deal if we converted here, but is it worth it?

    Really?! That's amazing! I will definitely ask her for contact information!

        Quick questions. .. when booking a room for the photographer did you book the room for only one guest? AND did you book the room in the photographer's name or your own? I'm pretty sure I have read the answer somewhere on here before but i have no idea how far back i need to go to find the answer now. Thanks!

            I booked the room on the mybarcelo.com site and booked it under the photographers name and address/phone number, I chose the room for 2 guests and I put a note in the section where I could and stated 'this room is for ... (Name of photographer) and his assistant to attend Charity's wedding' I have the photographer the confirmation booking number. If you are booking the room and your wedding isn't for a little while make sure you wait and keep checking back and get a good Barcelo Happy Days rate! It will save you hundreds!

              Hello, would any one have current set menu options for the beach party - dinner and appetizers for cocktail party? I have not been able to get anything from the WC and really need to know what's offered before we book our date.
