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!

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!!!!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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?

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!

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?

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 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?
