You will find ALL the info about Barcelo Maya here. http://www.unofficial-barcelo-maya.com/forum/index.php

There is a "neverending wedding photo thread" that has all pics of various sections/weddings on the resort! 

Good luck, and it's a great choice!

I know I have a ton of time before I have to decide, but I have already talked to Wendy Hicks from Wright Travel Agency (sooo super helpful) and she has also suggested the Riu Palace Riviera Maya. Just wanted to get some opinions on what sealed the deal for you with the Barcelo! 

 

We are definitely looking to have a wedding on the beach, that's a definite non-negotiable, and I haven't seen too many pics of beach weddings.  Am I just looking in the wrong places?  Any help would be so greatly appreciated.  Thanks girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cheesy.gif

Hola Melanie,

 

External photographer are not allowed on the resort, if he is one of your guest is necessary that you book him minimum 2 nights at the resort  minimum.

 

Thanks,

 

Claudia  Vazquez Garcia

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the email I have recieved from Claudia about the outside photographer policy,

 

2. what are your policies regarding outside photography?   Is necessary that they pay a $ 300.00usd fee for the company that is at the resort.

Haha...I love that every time the question is asked about outside photographers, Claudia's answer is different.

 

I'm guessing either $300 or 2 nights minimum. I'm going to pay whatever is cheaper :)

Make sure you also factor day passes for the photographer and their assistant.  This are in addition to the $300.00.

FYI the cheapest price I found per night at the hotel was around $152/night and that was on bookit.com

one or the other, 2 nights will included their meals and rooms, the 300 is for a "outside vendor fee" so with the 300 i was told u have to purchase 2 day passes to which specific hotel u are getting married at. like mine would be 300+2x(70$) i believe it is for the colonial!

I think I'll do the 2 nights...hopefully they allow you to choose one  of the cheaper hotels on the property. I'll just figure it out when we get down there.

I will be booking our photographer a room for 2 nights at the Barcelo Maya Beach. The price I have is $165 (Canadian) per night and that's all inclusive. So meals will be paid for and I don't have to worry about the day pass. I am going to book it soon so I don't have to worry about it.

It will be cheaper than paying the $300 outside vendor fee plus the two daypasses.

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
