    We just booked the Barcelo Maya Colonial in the Mayan. We are flying with Air Transat and booking a wedding package thru them. Glad everything is comming together!

    If you haven't already you should check out the Barcelo threads on here, even the palace ones. There is one huge Barcelo Thread with a ton of info and a couple smaller ones as well. I was married Nov 28 2012 at the Barcelo Palace, most of our guests stayed at the Colonial. I have nothing bad to say about the resort, it was such an amazing experience. air Transat on the other hand was a different story, I was fighting to get out tickets from them 7 days before we left, the ridiculous amount of complications were terrible but in the end when I demanded they do something about everything that had gone wrong we got upgraded. Consider both the AT packages and the resorts because the options are all very different and the prices appear cheaper but once you add upgrades and extra people ect it can be similar prices.

      For the dress in an overhead bin...From what I've looked up many companies don't have a place to hang it and you must put t in a bin. What we did was pre-board (even if I wasn't first class I would have asked to) and then put our luggage in the overhead compartment and then laid my dress on top of it. As it was full we closed it and no one else could use it. I would have been furious if someone tried to put their bag ON my dress. My dress wasn't huge but it was large enough with ruffles kn the bottom plus we had my husbands suit also hanging with it and i had no issues getting all of it to lay flat on top of our carry on luggage.

        Yes I have come across the Barcelo threads on this website, lots of helpful hints! I hope we have no problems with air transat...comming from saskatchewan, we don't have a lot of choices. I have had many family members and friends who have done sunwing this year and last year, and heard lots of horror stories about their flights. So sunwing was definately out for us! Thanks for the info on the storage of the dress, there definately will NO luggage on top of my dress!!

            I purchased my own tank tops and did the iron on transfer myself, I bought the transfers from etsy seller bridalblingshoppe and they worked out fantastic.
