    Thanks:)

    HI Lauren,

     

    I've been before, and I would say you're fine without a dance floor. You can also Google image search "Palmaras Grill Barcelo" and some photos come up, you can see the floor :) Hope that helps!

      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:


      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!! :)

      HI Firey Nurse,

       

      You're always so helpful!! I never would have thought to dry clean my dress down there, did you have it done through the resort, or did you take it into town? Totally makes sense to do it that way, because it's ridiculously expensive at home.

          Hello brides-to-be! As mentioned a few months back I am flying in a photographer who I originally booked in Punta Cana. If anyone is still looking for a photographer and getting married around the same time (May 5th is our date). We could split the cost of the photographers trip and save a ton. His prices are real good and his work is amazing. If anyone is interested PM me for details. I had a few people interested but their dates were too far away. Happy Thanksgiving and Happy planning!

            Hey! No worries! I loved every minute of our planning and wedding, I love sharing the details to help others! I just called the concierge and said I had my dress to be cleaned, you fill in the regular dry cleaning card and they send it away to be cleaned and then deliver it to your room about a day later. I even took more pics in my dress recently at home for a friends portfolio and because we were back in Mexico for our anniversary So i even took my dress back down and had it cleaned again!! Lol! This time it was 313 pesos or $24 us! Such a great deal! If I could get my junk together I'd consider doing all my dry cleaning there prior to coming home because its SOOOOO cheap!

                  Hello Ladies, 

                   

                   

                  Still trying to get use to this new format (not liking it so far). I'm getting married in July at the Palace and I'm now on Step 2 of the planning. I received the menu options for the Mint Breeze. SOOOOO we only get ONE choice for the main course????? This blows!! I thought my guests would have an option of at least 2 main courses to pick from!

                  MrsHK-I am looking for an all-inclusive resort in/near Playa, accepts kids, that is still fun for adults. A beautiful beach is important too! What suggestions do you have for a resort recommendation? I am stressing out just trying to decide which place to get married. I want somewhere nice but am trying to be cost conscience for my guests. Any suggestions??? Thanks!
