Barceló Maya Colonial Beach

Recommended Posts

Trish - if you PM me, I can send you the 2009 packages. As for the changes, I know the prices changed from 2008 to 2009 and I understand the menu choices have changed too. You never know what could change in Mexico :)

So after confirming my date at Dreams PA - I am now a Barcelo Bride!

The price at Dreams jumped $400+ pp, so, my FI and I had to reconsider. Luckily I looked into the Barcelo, because their wedding packages are pretty good!

We're getting married July 16. Less than 6 months away!

Carie- I'm so close to being done everything. All I need to do is print out my programs, welcome letters, and a few other things. Plus, I still need to buy some shorts, but Sears has some nice ones.


My travel mugs have arrived, I'm just waiting for UPS to show up today to drop them off. I still need to tan a bit more. What else? I think all I need to do is just go through everything and make certain that we have enough for our OOT bags. Unfortunately, we never got our welcome books made, mainly because I didn't think that it was worth it in the end. They would be very heavy. So, I might make something else here in the next couple of weeks.


How are you doing?


We seriously need to hook up for a drink at the Barcelo!!!!

Hi all,


We're currently in the midst of getting quotes from our TA. Our TA had wanted us to pick 3 resorts - so we've picked Iberostar Del Mar, GP and Barcelo Maya. Out of those 3, our TA had highly recommended Barcelo Maya and so I started looking up this thread. So far, I'm loving what I've heard.


I've emailed the WC but haven't heard back. I'm wondering if any of you would be able to send me the 2009 packages and reosrt map to jon.joann@gmail.com. I've seen the 2008 package online but thought that 2009 package might have changed.


As for the reception, with the Sea Breeze package, other than a banquet hall, what are the location options for the reception? If we chose an ala carte restaurant, how many hours do we have there?


Do you know if there's a garden setting for the ceremony location? How many weddings does the resort hold in a day?

Jojo - I don't have the 2009 packages yet - but I'm waiting for them! If you get them let me know :) When in November? We are the 28th!


I don't know about a garden ceremony - I haven't been there, but from what I hear you can find a location and they will pretty much cater to you! Plus there is a chapel at Colonial and there is a smaller beach chapel at Caribe. Those are other options. If not there is the gazebo at the Palace.


Go to the unoffical Barcelo Maya website:


they have everything you need!

Congrats Meagan!


Jillian, I don't have a date yet as I'm waiting on my TA but I did get the 2009 package.I'm having difficulty attaching it here. Will try again tonight.


Last night, I went to a card store to look at invitations and the lady who helped me got married in Barcelo Maya in July 2008. What a co-incidence! I'm meeting her again to look at her pictures and to get more info. Will share with you ladies.


Did any of you purchase travel insurance?

I purchased travel insurance...just to be safe. Travel guard has some good rates.


On a side note, I just read that someone got confirmation from the WC at Barcelo that they no longer allow outside photographers and have changed their policy to this recently. Is anyone else aware of this or have information about it?

I was wondering if anyone knew if in order to have your dinner in an open air grill you need to book the package that allows you to have your dinner on the beach, or if you can get married in the grill instead of a banquet hall??

I was also on here and found a couple pictures of someone who was married there and had their dinner by the pool, where was that? I think it was PhillyBride who had her reception there. Do you have to pay extra to have your dinner by the pool?

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
