I think I want my ceremony on the beach and my dinner in one of the outdoor grills. I'd love to see pictures and hear more. Thanks!
Yes there is a major difference in the wedding packages. If you want your dinner/reception outdoors you have to have the Ocean Scents package or higher (more expensive). The first two packages Mayan Sunset & Under the Stars are banquet room only for dinner, but you can still have the ceremony outside. The first two packages also have a limited menu, three courses,for you to choose from. Ocean Scents and higher have a five course meal (one of the choices is beef tenderloin w/lobster tail).
I hired an outside WC in Riviera Maya to work in conjunction with Gabriela (WC at Barcelo Palace). My WC is making sure all our i's are dotted and t's are crossed so we know what we're getting into.

Hi ladies! Has anyone been able to get a price for April-May 2010 from Vancouver, BC or Kelowna, BC?

 

I am having a really hard time finding a good TA that actually is helpful sad.gif

Hello there!!! I am also getting married in May 2010. And I'm also from Canada, Alberta actually. :) I don't think that we can get quotes right now for 2010 but I could be wrong.

Hi I am also from Vancouver BC and have put my wedding date on hold for the Barcelo Maya for Feb 25 2010. I have talked to a few travel agents already and have one in my extended family. I was told the prices for Feb wont be out until end of April or early May. I was told I could double check in the begginning of April but they probably won't be out. I would imagine the prices for April/May won't be out for a few months after that. I don't think the put the prices for 2010 all at once but i could be wrong. From what I understand they are updated monthly.

 

I was worried about this to because I wanted to be booked at least a year in advance and get the STD out. The 3 TA's that I talked to said that I would have plenty of time and not to worry. So I guess that is what I am going to have to do. I am just going to let family know verbally and through email. And get the STD out when I can!

We've finally decided on Barcelo Maya!!!! We would like to book January 8, 2010 (1 year from today!! YAHHHH!!!!)...we've contacted the hotel and the wedding coordinator and were told we couldn't reserve the date until their new 2010 quotes are up which would be until March/April!!! I'm freaking out because I want to send my STD's in March, what if they don't have our day available?!?!?!? I guess my STD's would just say "Riviera Maya, Mexico" and not name the location, and if all else fails we'd choose a different location! But we really have our hearts set on having it at Barcelo! Is anyone else having it there in 2010? Have you been told the same thing!

 

Thanks!

That is weird I just put my Feb 25, 2010 wedding on hold a few weeks back with Claudia the WC she told me I have 5 months to confirm. And that she would send me the 2010 prices when they come out in 3 months give or takehuh.gif?? Its seems like everyone does things differently down there I would call again to double check?

Hey ladies!!! I too was a Barcelo bride! Originally a Dreams Tulum bride!

 

I too am from the lower mainland. I just wanted to let you know, that I too had a very hard time at the beginning of our DW planning. We couldn't get quotes anywhere! Some TA looked at me like I was retarded when I asked about quotes. Not a pleasant feeling!

 

In the end I think you just have to wait it out... The best piece of advice I can give you is to just be patient.

 

Trust me when I say... Everything will work out in the end :) :) :) Happy Planning ladies :)

Aww you're from Coquitlam, that's where my FI proposed to me. :) I love it there. We go there every year.

Thanks for the advice Dreamstbride. You're right, we're just going to have to wait right now. But I'm sure it'll work out... I just have to have patience. (which I don't have a whole lot of usually. haha!)

Did you ladies email the WC? I've been trying to contact them to request a date in July, but haven't heard from them! I need to know so I can decide on a resort!

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned. 
    • My daughter is getting married in Punta Cana on May 23rd, 2020. The hotel is charging a fortune for centerpieces that I can make it easily. I need a contact of wholesale florist please. To buy directly. If anyone could help I appreciate
