Where are all the barcelo brides?! This thread has been dead lately and I have more questions for the brides to be getting married at this resort!

    Only 74 more days until I am on the beach getting married. I leave in about 70 days. I'm getting so excited, I did run into a bump as far as my wedding dress, I had my alterations appointment, and realized I couldn't stand my dress...so the hunt is on :) hopefully I can find something quick!

     

    I have also come to the terms that I am going to want a photographer, at first I couldn't really comprehend spending so much money especially to get them inside the resort, but in the end I think I am going to start the hunt for photography! Any ideas?..prices? Thanks!

     

    Also, as far as welcome bags, anybody have a good idea as far as what works well?  And decorations ...I really want sparklers guess I will just have to find some when I get down there...maybe a Wal-mart run..that's if they sell them :)

        I am a Barceló Maya Palace bride!  April 2015!

         

        We are on Step 1 of the planning process right now.  It's hard trying to pick a ceremony location without ever having been there!  Does anyone have any recommendations?  We really want a ceremony on the beach, and have narrowed down our choices to Playa Coral and Playa Azul.  We really like the look of Playa Azul (just sand and ocean), but are worried that there will be hundreds of people standing around watching our wedding (and swimming in the ocean behind us, therefore getting into our photos!).  I've seen some horrendous photos of beach ceremonies with men in speedos in the background!  Also, by then, the Beach/Caribe hotels will have just recently been renovated, therefore, I anticipate that that side of the resort will be busier than it has been in the past....

         

        Any advice from past brides (or future brides who have done site visits) would be awesome!

          @starbx123 My wedding ceremony and reception are confirmed for the playa azul location on 5/15/15. I even changed my wedding date (only by a day), JUST to have this location. From what I have read on here, most people say it is the most private place for you to have your ceremony and reception…except for of course a banquet hall. If you want something more private, I would definitely go with playa azul! Who is your wedding coordinator?
