    Hi, I have spoken to Jacqueline, one of the wedding coordinators at the resort and I was able to hold the date of April 24, 2013 @ 5:00pm (the 4:00pm spot was taken already!) I have everything in the works with my travel agent.  The only problem is the flight schedules aren't out yet so our fly in date of April 21st may change by a day or two.  You have to be in Mexico 3-4 days prior to getting married.  I am hoping to be able to switch the 24th if I need to based on the flight changing.  If you are worried about your wedding day being booked up, tentatively book at weddings@barcelomaya.com and one of their coordinators will respond.  Ask if the date can be switched without a fee or hassle within the time frame of you being booked into the resort.  They will hold the date for you, once you and your fiance book your rooms and e-mail the proof of you staying at the resort at the time of the wedding date, then the wedding coordinator will proceed with all the wedding planning and details.

     

    Good luck to you and congrats!!!

            Thank you!! I see you have chosen Barcelo Maya Palace! I recently stumbled across this resort  and its absolutely beautiful! Working with my TA to get rates and i hope i can finally make my decision. I have been looking at the now jade also but this resort def blows that one away lol Maybe you can help me with some other questions.. I plan on having my bachelorette party a day or two before i was wondering how far is this resort from coco bongo?

              we our wedding is officially booked!! We are getting married at 2pm February 23, 2013! So excited now that I have everything set! We went with the strawberry passion package. We will be having some add ons eventually, I love how flexible it is to just add what you want! Now I have to just worry about photography! Eeek! I fell in love with a photographer from the area I just have a feeling it is going to be out of the budget  Does anyone know what the rates are for the resort photographer? Just so hard to get an idea. Just so all of you have a little added comfort, when we were trying to choose a resort they all seemed nice but we went with the barcelo because I had regulars and friends of mine recommend the barcelo and they could not be more enthusiastic about how wonderful it was. So yayy for all of us! Congrats to all of you ladies!!!

                meant to say "well our wedding is officially booked" also meant to add we went with 2pm because the W.C recommended that time for adequate lighting for photographer.. she said it was the best time for that time of year for photos during the ceremony and before and after. Just something for you to think about to discuss with the WC to help ya out

                  Check out my very long review here. As part of our package we had the resort photographer for 30 min. He was there for part of our ceremony. We were ten minutes late and he didn't stay. We just bought the cd of pics $150 for 200 pics and I posted some to give you an idea. I dont know how much the resort photographer charges but our outside photographer Gonzalo Nunez was phenomenal! We had him for ten hours on the wedding day and a TTD. You can see just two pics at the bottom of the review http://www.bestdesti...ve/reviews/5916

                    Thank you so much! That was a thorough review definately! Thorough is good. This forum is so useful I am hooked! I just feel like I lose track of where I found things lol. I emailed the photographer, his work is beautiful! Hopefully he is with in my idea of the photography budget. On facebook he said he already has a ton of closings for 2013 so hoping his rates didnt jump sky high! I am not even sure what I am willing to pay at the moment to be honest! Wish me luck!! Thanks again!

                      I was wondering if any of the past brides would like to share their wedding websites? or any templates they have on barcelo? I want to make a newsletter and I could use some ideas. Thanks so much.
