    Has anyone ever used an in-house Barcelo DJ? After looking around, and considering having to pay vendor fee for the external DJ, I think we have decided on using Barcelo's DJ...any recommendations? please:)

I'm only expecting just under 20 guests, so 8 centerpieces is all I'm considering to be making / bringing with me. cost wise, I believe yours is about 25-30 each, mine will be about 20 (11 for the vase, 3 for the gel balls, 7 for the feathers and lighted up bottom).

      I really like those! Very pretty! Yes, the ones I chose are 30 a piece but one of there less expensive ones to choose from.

        what are your wedding colors? my wedding is just a day before yours, so we could share the centerpieces, if you'd like.

          Our colors are turquoise and white.  Thanks for the offer, that is really nice.  I think we are going to stick with the shell centerpieces as it fits with some of our other themes :) Remind me which location you are using for ceremony and reception?

            No worries! I was actually considering incorporating shells in my centrepiece as well, looks so beachy!:) we are getting married on the beach, palmeras beach I believe, at the Tropical, and the reception is in one if the banquet rooms.

            Have you been in contact with one of the wedding coordinators yet?  Once you are, they should start sending you each step at a time, I believe there are 8 steps in the planning process (ceremony, music, cocktail hour, reception, flowers and decoration, photography, etc...)  Mine has sent me many photos of my options from beach locations, centerpieces, huppa options, banquet room set up photos, flowers.  If you ask for photos they are usually good about sending them.  I have found the planning to be very easy and low stress! :)

             

            Best moments is not part of the resort but they have an agreement with the resort so they do not require you to pay a vendor fee for them to come in for the day.  Here is the website: http://thebestmoments.com.mx/. They will email you the current prices if you send them a message. I think I am paying around 350 for a trial run and day of makeup and hair but this was one of the more expensive packages and there are others to choose from.

             

            Playa Azul was my second choice for the ceremony, it is a beautiful beach.  My fianc© and I have been to Barcel³ Maya before and it is absolutely gorgeous, you will love it!

             

            If you want me to email you any photos let me know, I will see what I have!

             

            No we haven't been in contact yet as we just made deposits. Its still so far away. I have heard that you don't usually start planning until payment is made in full which will be mid March.  I am more concerned about the banquet room vs outside. We want to stick with the mint breeze, but I absolutely hate that orange colour I have seen in pics of the banquet room. If you have pics of the tropical banquet room I would LOVE to see that. And the options of locations for ceremony too :)

             

            I know it will all fall into place, and its a full year away, I just like to plan :P My fianc© is a police officer and I am a registered nurse here in Vancouver, so we don't have a ton of time to plan weddings etc, hence the destination wedding :)  My email is sarah.douglas13@hotmail.com if you feel like emailing back and forth. feb is so close, you must be super excited!

            Hello Barcelo Maya brides! Congrats on your upcoming weddings! :) This post is for any brides interested in affordable decor for your big day.

             

            I'm a newlywed from Vancouver, Canada that lives down here in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I have quite a few decor items leftover from our wedding in May, mostly in a rustic vintage style. I've decided to rent things out to brides that don't want to lug things like vases & mason jars down here to Mexico, and have priced things quite fairly compared to the resorts' prices. 

             

            I have a lots of different types of bottles, mason jars, vases and lanterns, as well as a variety of other items like wooden signs & frames, table runners, rustic birdcages, string lighting and even a portable sound system.


            If you want a Style Me Pretty or Ruffled type of wedding in Mexico without a huge price tag, I'm your gal! So far no one has had to pay an outside vendor fee at all, as they tell their WC that they have brought the decor themselves. I'm also always interested in buying items that brides bring down and would like to sell after their weddings, please send me photos of anything you'd like to sell!

            If you'd like to see some photos and a price list, please send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you all the info. Also if anyone has any questions about the area, ask away! I've lived in Playa Del Carmen for two years and know the whole coast quite well. Happy planning ladies!

             

            Here's a couple of photos of some items we used in our wedding and that are for rent, but I have lots more:

            Are you interested in an affordable decor rental in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico? Send me a message! Most of the items I have are a rustic, vintage style.

              Hey ladies! Glad to see some people on here actively planning! I miss my planning time! I was married almost exactly a year ago at the Barcelo! If you have any questions feel free to ask! We stayed at the palace and with the exception of about 2 other rooms everyone else in our party stayed at the Tripical/colonial. We spent a ton of time away from the Palace for our first week with our friends and the entire complex is actually really all amazing! Our date as Nov 28, Victoria was our planner. We had 22 people and went with the strawberry package because having a reception in the beach was a MUST for us. It did threaten rain a little on our wedding day (forecasted 40% chance of showers) and after I was nearly in tears over not wanting to be in a banquet hall due to rain we were offered the pool activity area Palapa. The grill receptions are beautiful! Our ceremony was in the gazebo and our reception on coco beach (the beach in front of the coco bar at the palace), our other option was coral beach and it is also beautiful! It's a little higher up from the water with bushes, not really on the beach with the waves lapping at the shore sort of thing. Also, as I saw your centrepiece, if you are looking at light weight options, I thought I'd share what we did. I wanted the beads in vases until I found a lighter weight example and copied it. It sounds odd but we used glass vases and then placed coloured cellophane in it (purple was our color) and then filled it with water and had a purple led light attached to an organza flower on top to illuminate it. Turned out perfect! Here's a pic: Posted Image The teal bottle was our guest book message in a bottle thing, not a part of our centre pieces. Anyways, happy planning! Don't take anything all that crazy seriously because its soooo easy to change anything when you are at the resort, those planners are amazing and work miracles! Also...dry clean your dress prior to leaving, mine was big with ruffles and stuff and it cost 112 pesos or approximately $10 Canadian and it came out looking 100% perfectly brand new!! And it sure beats paying the crazy costs at home for cleaning. I'm happy to answer any questions if I can help!! :)

                Hey ladies, Have any of you been to the resort? We are having our reception at the Palmaras grill and I am wondering if we need a dance floor or not. I'm hoping the floor is alright to dance on so we don't have to spend the money but I have no idea since I have never been there! Thanks:)

                  Hi everyone, i've been MIA lately, but with the wedding only 5 months away i'm starting to focus on some of the last details again. I wanted to have table numbers, but not name place cards, I thought i'll assign people to a table, but they can sit where ever they want at that table, the only thing is I don't want to pack a massive board with table assignments on it. Does anyone have an idea that requires little supplies, and minimal effort? I did do a search on this site, but nothing really caught my eye. 

                   

                  I'm already bringing, chair sashes (35), an arch, linen napkins (35), vases for centrepieces (5-7), fans (35) and paresol umbrellas (12), as well as my cake topper, programs and table numbers. It didn't seem like that much until I typed it all out :S ugh, i told myself i wouldn't go crazy like this LOL

                   

                  So anyways, any help for a simple and minimal supplies required seating chart, would be greatly appreciated!
