Hi. If you don't mind me asking but what did you think of their packages. What about the ceremony locations, are they just as they are pictured? I am having trouble deciding on whether to go with Moon Palace, Barcelo Maya Palace or Azul Sensatori. I'd appreciate any input you can give me....Thanks

Sorry for the slow reply, we were out of town at a friends' wedding.

We actually travelled down and looked at the Barcelo Maya Palace. It is a resort which has 4-5 other resorts bunched together (all Barcelo resorts). It is huge (which is not what we wanted...all together I think they said it was about 3000 rooms) But the beach was stunning at the Maya Palace, and they had a wonderful white gazeboo just up from the beach. There was also a very quite corner (to the north of the main beach) set behind some palm trees looking over the ocean. If your group was small enough (I think max. 25 people) that's what I would choose. It was beautiful.

Did not look at the Moon Palace, so I can't help there.

The Azul Sensatori has 4 different sites on the beach, a gazeboo and a roof top patio over looking the ocean(at an extra cost). We have choosen to do the beach option, just because we want it to be casual and we are at a beach!

 

Wish you all the best, I should be online more often now. I think I even have some pictures from the Barcelo if you want me to send them to you.

Cheers!

Hi there. Thanks so much for the info. It's been so overwhelming trying to figure out what's best for us with our families in mind. As much as we liked the Azul, I think it would be asking too much of our guest. At this point we are waiting to hear from Moon Palace, Dreams and recently added the Now Jade. I just hope things fall into place once a date is confirmed. Best of luck with your planning!

The Dreams resorts are great for families as well. That was our #2 choice. I think Moon Palace and Now Jade are adults only resorts. Not sure if that's what you are looking for. Another wonderful adults only resort would be The Excellence, if you need a suggestion, and it's more reasonable priced then Now Jade (at least from Toronto).

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
