Barcelo Maya Palace Bride

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies

 

I am Getting married in February 2013 at the Barcelo Palace in the Riviera Maya and I have looked over a few forums and was wondering if any has any advice for me and if you got married there or have stayed there how was it?

I am a little nervous but super excited!! we have been together 10 wonderful years and have an amazing 8 yr old daughter. Does any one have any advice on how we can include her in the wedding? I am thinking of doing something special for her during the ceremony but I don't know what yet, any ideas?

 

Thanks for your help!!! I am so happy that I found this place :)

Has anyone used the barcelo experience photographers? I am wondering about using them or finding someone if they allow it. If you have used them can you tell how it went?  or who did you use? I am nervous because my brother in law got married in the DR at a gran bahia  and all the pics have a weird coloring to them (kinda yellow, his gray suit looks green). Thanks so much for your help.

Wow these are beautiful!! thank you for the info, do you know what their policy is at the moment? I have written an email asking about outside photographers but haven't gotten a response yet. I would feel more comfortable being able to choose but I guess I have to wait and see.  I love you website and was wondering you could please email me some package information to angelaisacson@hotmail.com. Thanks so much!!

Hey Angela2013...I too am planning a wedding at the Palace! I debated on hiring the resort photographers as well but didn't find their packages to be all that great price wise and I also found their pics to be very basic and boring and as much as we want to watch our budget we also want great pictures of our special day. The outside vendor fee was $300 to be paid to the onsite photogrpahers (I think this is awful), but I recently saw on here that it has gone up to $500 for 2012. Darn it!  I mean check around, some people give the on site photographers good reviews but others not so much...I guess it all depends on what you are looking for in your pics.

 

Cheers and happy planning!

I agree an the packages, I find it silly how much they want for an hour and like 40 pictures. Thanks for the info on the fee, I would definitely rather pay it and feel confident about my pictures then to have no idea and be a nervous wreck about them.

Congrats and welcome!  I've done many shoots at the Barcelo and they have had different policies concerning outside photographers.  The most recent information I have is either a $500 fee or a minimum 2 nights stay for the photographer.  Be sure to choose a photographer that will do you justice on that special day.  I have a few of the weddings I've done on MY BLOG so you can get some inspiration and ideas!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
