    If your bags are chosen to be searched, you'll need to prove the total value of the items you are bringing for the wedding or they can tax you on what they believe they are worth.

      Also, I have about 6 guests who don't eat seafood, yet I want to have the surf and turf, if any of you have chose that option, were the guests that don't eat seafood allowed to just have the beef without lobster tail?

       

      Thanks :)

      For those that have a shellfish allergy (myself included), I am selecting another dish. My wedding coordinator told me that as long as I give them the exact # of which dishes (eg; 65 beef, 10 chicken, 5 vegetarian) then the kitchen staff can prepare the food. They can accommodate, you just need to ask and let them know.

            Hey ladies, Just had our wedding at the Barcelo Tropical on May 1st/ 13 and it was amazing!!!! I had never been to the resort, and when I had my meeting with Xhail the day before the wedding, we planned everything from the menu, flowers, locations, pick up times etc.  I was stressed because the details weren't ironed out before we left, but these wedding planners are very professional and accommodating and will make sure your day is perfect!  If anyone has any questions, please message me, and happy planning!

              What is the reason behind saving the receipts for everything? I'm not sure I have all them :confused:

              They don't want you importing things to sell so you have to make sure the value of your goods is not above a certain amount...I can't recall the amount though. We had some michaels receipts, dollar store ones etc, nothing major and they didn't ask to see them. They did ask me how many people were bringing wedding supplies, it was my husband, myself and my brother and sister in law and they asked the value and I said under $200 and they just said go ahead. No huge issues. I guess it may depend on what you are taking and quantities. I don't think you need to have a recipt to account for every single thing, more so prove that you aren't carrying thousands of dollars of stuff in.

              maybe we will see each other at the resort!!!


              Want me to send pics? Templates? I have the bag toppers (generic, no date so can be used by anyone) and the key/tip holders (with our wedding date, but it can be changed pretty easily). What do you have left to do? I still have a few things not finished, but the bags are ALMOST done :) I have had to take a chill pill because I'm working full time and CAN'T stress about this lol. Let me know what you need and I'll see if I can help you out!

              Well our wedding has come and gone as of March 22, 2013. :( We had an amazing time! Our wedding at BarcelĀ³ Maya Palace Deluxe was awesome! Victoria was our wedding coordinator and she really did a get job! I have a tone of pictures. If anyone has any question about their upcoming wedding I will be more than happy to answer them. We had our ceremony at the Gazebo (5:00) and the reception was at the Palamas Grill (7:00). I did get my hair & make up done at the spa.

              Congrats!! Looks amazing :) We are having similar colours! Also good to hear that Victoria was a good planner. What did you tip her if you don't mind me asking? Any suggestions for working with her? Again, congrats! You looked gorgeous :)

                I've just started our wedding website (chelseaandjimmy.com) and was wondering if anyone wouldn't mind sharing their website? I'm interested to see what sort of information people had about the resort on their websites. There's so much information I could put! Thanks!! :)

                 

                If anyone is thinking about starting their website I used ewedding.com and LOVE it so far. SUPER easy and they have nice layouts. I paid about $50 for the year and got to choose my own domain name etc. Just a tip! I know there's a bunch of ways to go with the website...but I'd for sure recommend this.
