We were only expecting 30 so I dont want us to be in too large of a room, but I just love the way that the Coral Grill looks in thh pictues!! I looked at your pictures and I couldnt tell if the grill was outdoors, had open air, was completely enclosed(with no windows), or just had big windows that were kept closed. Also, did you have a DJ? Did they have an IPOD dock? I think we MIGHT pay for an extra hour or two of open bar, but we figured that we would then just take the party to the lounge or the club. Last question, I saw that you all had pictures up on a screen, did they provide everything (other than the CD with the pictures) that was needed? I loved it!! Thank you sooo much!
Sincerely
Dearmaya!!!

You will love Claudia! We had a total of 42 people. The grill is huge, but we were only in one half of it. They arranged the tables in a way that really closed the room in, so it didn't seem too large at all. I think it will be fine with 30 people. The grill wasn't as open as I expected. It is not as open as the other grills because it is supposed to be nicer. There are huge windows all around the building that can open up. They are huge sliding windows, I'm sure you could have them as open or as closed as you want. I'm not sure how open our windows were, I didn't even notice. We did not have a dj. We used our own ipod on a dock, Claudia stood by it and turned the volume down for toasts, or put on our special songs such as our first dance. I liked having the ipod, because I could go over and change the music as I wanted. Our reception did seem a bit short, and Claudia told us we could keep it going for an extra hour, for $10 per person. So another $420.00, but since we had done the cocktail hour prior we decided to move our party to the Carey Bar upstairs. It is a laid back lounge, where we went every night. It was a fun bar with a piano, and plenty of room for everyone. Afterwards, my wedding party headed to the disco, they had a blast. They said it was pretty cheesy, but super fun! I created the slideshow and gave to Claudia to play. I told her I when to play it, and everything went perfectly. The audio/visual equipment is an additional cost of $420.00. We played the slideshow at the beginning of the reception, and after it was over, we turned the sound down and just let the pictures play while we ate dinner. If you want to take a look at my slideshow, its on our wedding web site. www.keelyandlee.com You can find it under the wedding slideshow page. Part of what I do is making wedding slideshows and wedding websites, so if you're interested let me know. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!

Does anyone have experience with a legal ceremony at the Barcelo? Can you tell me how the judge was? Do you know if it is religious? Can you still write your own vows? Thanks!

The legal ceremony, if it is on the beach, can not be religious. You can only have a religious ceremony if it is in the chapel or in a church. I'm pretty sure you can write your own vows and add readings to the ceremony, I don't see why not?

 

Anyone getting married in late june/early july 2010? I wanna meet someone who is getting married around the same time as me =)

A lot of you have mentioned these open air grills for the dinner are they considered an option if we are not doing our reception on the beach? We are going with the sea breeze package( I think) so our meal is supposed to happen in a ball room I wonder If I can use a grill instead?

You have to pick one of the packages that includes a dinner on the beach if you would like to use an open air grill. The only other option is the banquet room.

so I have booked my wedding for october 24, 2009 but I really haven't done much more. I have sent an email asking for more pictures and location options, decor stuff, etc... I don't know if I should be more aggressive or if somebody else possibly has some more photos of weddings at the resort

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
