    Smartinez, which travel agent did you go with? I am in MN too and have been shopping for prices. Thanks!

        HI harv0136
        We found a women who worked for Travel By Nelson. They have a website. The TA's Name is Sharon. She was the second TA we worked with. We really liked her and we had almost all of are guest book with her so... which was super nice because she kept track of everything and we were able to get a list of all the flight times and dates of our guest. She also made sure that we were all in the same part of the resort. We did almost everything over the phone or email. We only went into her office for our first visit which helped us both put a face to the actual person(s) we were working with.
        Hope this helps!

          I just put my Feb 25, 2010 wedding date on hold 2 days ago/wClaudia the WC and I had no problems she told me I had 5 months to send the confirmation. She also told me the 2010 prices will be out in 3 months give or take. That they have new photographers at the palace and you can still bring your own with a guest pass! I am using Claudia Roderguiez!

            I have a question, I hope someone has an answer for me!
            My fiance and I have reserved our wedding date the Barcelo and I was just wondering if we decide to have a symbolic wedding (not legal) can we still have a "Under the Stars" package or do we have to use the "Renewal of Vows" package? The Under the Stars package has way more to it and I don't want to have to add all these things to the Renewal of Vows package for a ton of extra money!
            If anyone knows it would be a great help for me. Thanks!

                Before getting to the resort for the wedding all that I had planned was our meal and the package and where the dinner would be held. I don't think I had anything else planned! When we got there and meet with WC for about 45 mins in this time we picked out the flowers, music, set-up of wedding chairs/table etc for the beach, bow colors, center pieces, back up location, if we need anything at the dinner like sound system, over projector and screen....finalized meal for adults and children (they were able to add extra courses) WE really left all of it for when we got their and I will have to say this was best for us we were not to concerned about all the extras we just wanted to get married and enjoy are time with our guest!!! I also think our WC appreciated our style because she was not dealing with a "crazy" bride. I even picked out my hair style from one of books in the salon on the day of the wedding. You have to remember that these WC do 100's of weddings and they are very organized when you get there. They had TON of books with pictures of everything. We had 50+ people with us and I can not think of ONE thing that went wrong that they could have changed! I WISH I COULD DO IT AGAIN IT WAS SO FUN!!!!! and all of are guest loved it!!!!!

                    Hi Smartinez...thank you again for all your help!
                    I am glad to hear that you were as laid back about your wedding as I feel!
                    Makes me feel a lot better!
                    Thank you,

                      Hi ladies, I was wondering if someone could send me the packages for 2009? Also, does anyone know what will be changing in the packages for 2010? Will just the prices change or will the content change as well? Thanks for your help!!
