I e-mailed the wedding coordinators at Barcelo and they put my date on hold. You have until 5 months before the wedding to provide them with your booking info, then they will officially reserve your date. I am working with a travel agent for flight/hotel prices but working directly with the Barcelo for wedding stuff. Hope this helps!

Hey guys we are getting married at the BArcelo Tropical July 9 2009 and have been told there is no way we can bring in our own photographer. How the heck did you guys get yours in? OUr wedding planner is very nice I don't want to make her hate us by harrassing her too much so whats the secret?

KBBride, What great pictures! It definitely looks like everything went smoothly! Congrats on everything. Sooo, where did you all have the reception. I had not seen that part of the resort. I loved it! Also did you take the centerpieces with you or is that what they offered? We are getting married in July and I love the idea of a simple wedding, but still want everthing to go smoothly. Thanks!

Maya

I did not hear that about the photographer. I was told that their policy has recently changed and you can now bring in a photographer as long as you pay for a guest pass. I think this is fairly recent, within last year or so. I am working with Gabriella and have it from her in writing!

 

Also, are any of you having the legal wedding? Is it a big pain to get all the paperwork ready and the blood test? Do you know if you can still add extra things to the ceremony if it is legal, such as a sand ceremony and have your own vows? Thanks!

KBBride-Your pictures are great! I sent Matt an email. How did you find out about him and how many days did he spend with you? I am interested in where you got your centerpieces too...thanks

Anyone has the 2009 wedding package pricing? I couldn't find it anywhere. I have been emailing them but never got an answer back......Is it a sign for me to reconsider this resort?

I have a hard copy of the 2009 packages at home. I can scan tomorrow and post it if you haven't found it by then. The WC's take forever to get back via e mail but they will eventually. We just returned from a site visit and the resort was awsome. We watched a wedding ceremony and we spoke to a family that had a wedding at the Palace the day before. They all used the word "perfect" in their desciption of their special night.

Thank you Houserhead!! You are very kind :-)

 

Did you know anything about the rule about the outside photographer over there? Can we just get a day pass or we have to have them stay for the night?

I forgot the wedding packages again!! I will really try to remember them tomorrow. I am not sure about the photographers. If I were you I would not mention anything and play dumb. Say the photographer is a guest of yours?
