    Anyone getting married in late june/early july 2010? I wanna meet someone who is getting married around the same time as me =)
    Barbo & Maegan: I am getting married July 1 at the Barcelo as well!!! Where are you girls looking to have your reception?

      Hi BethBride,

      We were getting married on July 1st but since my FI is a teacher and school isn't out until the 30th next year we had to bump it by a week. We are now getting married on July 8th 2010 :)

      So now that we have our date reserved, what do we do? Have any of you started talking to the resort about wedding details?

      Hi Barbara!

      I am a teacher too! Along with my parents, maid of honor, FI's dad, & brother in law....hahaha we have lots of teachers! We were originally doing the last week in June, but then bumped it to July 1 for the same reason.

      I'm not sure what is next. I emailed Victoria, but she hasn't gotten back to me. How many people are you expecting? Do you have rates for travel yet?

        Hi Beth! I'm so excited to finally meet someone who is getting married on the same date-- and we live fairly close to each other as well! What's even funnier is that I hope to be working in the schools as well, I am graduating next month with my masters in Speech language Pathology. That's why we booked it for July 1st!
        We already booked the date through barcelo. We have been in contact with travel agents so that everyone can book their hotel and airfare through them, however, booking online still seems to be cheaper!

          Oops-forgot to answer your ? about how many people we are expecting. We are inviting 75, and expecting between 40 and 50?

            Hi Beth,
            We have 3 teachers coming too! :) We have rates already. It's a bit pricey as we are out of Vancouver Canada. It's about $1900 per person and the kids don't get too good of a rate... But we only have two young kids coming (my nieces). We have almost 30 people booked already! :)

            Does anyone know what to do next? Do I start talking to the coordinator there about what we want to do? I do however want to wait until I have a more accurate number of guests before I pick my package.

            I'm in University to become an elementary school French teacher! We should rename this thread 'teachers getting hitched!'

              Oh and I called Barcelo directly using Skype and got through to the coordinators both times! I have read everywhere about Barcelo coordinators being difficult to get a hold of via email... So maybe make a list of your questions and call! :)

                Does anyone have the new 2010 prices? Also, for those that have stayed at the palace before...were you guests at the tropical allowed anywhere at the palace? I know they have specific pools and restaurants that you can only go to if you stay at the palace. But what about the bars and the beach? Also, are they allowed in the palace rooms? I'm wondering if we can have people in our rooms that are staying at the tropical/colonial? Just to get ready together or have a few drinks before going out. Anyone have an experiance with this? Thank you!

                  Barbo, I told the WC my package at the beginning and approx number of guest. I have since changed my package. I think it's okay to change pretty much everything up until you get there. I think they e-mail you about a month in advance with more specific questions. If you have special requests, such as music or location, etc. It helps to let them know asap so you can reserve your spots. I hear they do up to 6 weddings per day at all the different resorts, so pick your spot early!
