      Hi there! Our wedding is Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014 so we will be there at the same time! We are staying at the Palace and having our wedding at coral beach. How many guests are you expecting? Where are you having your ceremony? Hopefully we will run into each other! Congrats to you!

        Cups 

         

        I thought it would be great to give my guests personalized tumblers....who did this and did the Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe give your guests problems about filling the cups at the bar?

          your wedding was gorgeous!  thank you for sharing your video.  

           

          Love the maracas.  Did you get them in Mexico or bring them? 

           

          What about welcome bags?  Did you give your guests welcome bags and if so what did you put in them?

           

          Sorry for the barrage of questions!  

           

          Any advice would be much appreciated.

            Can anyone tell me if a welcome dinner is included or do we have to pay extra?

              They will let you have ONE group dinner booked through the travel agent that does not cost anything. We made sure to tip the waitstaff, but we had a set menu at the Caribbean restaurant for 26 people that did not cost us anything more than that. We didn't do a welcome dinner, we just went to one of the buffets early and had a group of a few tables (they are really close to eachother). We used our one group dinner reservation for a rehearsal dinner instead!

Thanks!


              On the back of the keycard holders I made, I wrote everyone's room number, which was super helpful!! We just called eachother and planned to meet at a particular time, left a message if they didn't pick up. I've heard of people using walkie-talkies, which would have been a great idea! It definitely was challenging, because the resort is really big, but we definitely developed a bit of a routine and the 'usual' places that we would hang out.

                wow! that is awesome!  I thought it was extra for a group dinner.  Maybe it is number of people we have???

                 

                We have the Strawberry Passion package and have about 40 people coming but they told us it would be extra for a rehearsal dinner.  Wonder why?
