2012 Barcelo Maya Palace Brides!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi we are getting married October 6, 2012 at the Barcelo Palace.  We also choose the Strawberry Package because we wanted to get married and have the reception on the beach.  We chose the surf and turf for dinner.  Now we are trying to plan out the rest of the reception.  I don't know where to have the reception.  Everyone is saying the Azul is the most private.  We are going to be having about 65 guests so we will need about 8-10 tables.  Does anyone have pictures of this location?  I want to get an idea of how it can be decorated!!!

 

Thanks everyone,

 

Kristina

If you look back in this thread you should find brides who have posted pictures, that's the best way to see the decorated locations.

 

I have a few saved on my computer

 

Playa Azul

 

I'm not sure how many it can accommodate, you have quite a large party.  They might be spilling out of the Palupa thing. You'd have to ask your coordinator, they will also have pictures to send (some of these are from mine). I'm doing my ceremony at Playa Azul for the remoteness, I opted to do the reception closer to the resorts, as we have a couple grandmas and grandpa's and older people, who may want to run to their room in between, and have a break.

Palmerus

This site is the best for larger groups I think.  It's right beside the Palace - it's back up is also the Palmerus grill, so if it rains you can still be kind of on the beach, I think Azul and Coral the back up is a banquet room.

Playa Coral is the other beach location, I think it is a bit smaller too.  It's really pretty, and was my initial choice for reecption, but I opted to go with Palmerus because of the back up location.

Hello,

 

Just need some help, getting married in 2012, and need to know the best place for wedding, reception, etc. I was thinking Gazebo, then Auzel? what do you think, any help is greatly appreciated!

It depends on how many guests you have.  The gazebo is beautiful but I think it is better suited for smaller numbers.  Otherwise the guest's views are obstructed by the columns of the gazebo.  If you go to the reviews section of BDW, you will find many pictures of the various ceremony and reception locations to give you an idea of how each will look.  Good luck!

I thought I read here somewhere that you have to pay for the lights on the palm trees...? Anyone know if this is true? I have searched and searched and can't find it...maybe I am mistaken. I hope so as our Strawberry Passion Package includes a decorated reception location.

Yes, the cost is per string.  Not sure on the cost.  Once I find out from my WC, then I will share with you.

Hey,

 

I am getting married at the Barcelo Palace on April 18th, 2012 and got the Chocolate Package. We have about 65 people coming...

 

Our wedding planner told us to go with the chocolate package... Did anyone else get this package?

 

Is anyone bringing a photographer? I was thinking about splitting the flight cost with another bride. If anyone interested let me know!!!

    • 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.
