Hello!  I'm Kayla and my fiancee and I are planning on getting married at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe over New Years 2013!  Tour operators don't have their all inclusive prices out yet and it pays for us to wait a month or two until they do.  We are expecting approx 80 guests and I'm getting anxious on putting this whole thing together :()  If anyone has advice for me about the various packages, hidden costs, things to ask for - please fire away lol.  I need ALL the help I can get.

Welcome!  That one suggestion I can make it to use a travel agent.  I was so greatful to have a travel agent who was able to deal strictly with all the travel planning, where as I could really focus on planning the wedding part with the wedding coordinators at the resort.

We have been in contact with Marlene and she is pretty quick at responding which is appreciated.  It's hard to get a handle tho on what this will cost us and that is getting me frustrated.  We will be a group of 80 and I would really like to know if someone had a large wedding and can help me.  We were advised that there are no perks or benefits to a large group but yet at the Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe - they gave a free reception when this large wedding group had 35 rooms booked.  I was told different Barcelo's have different packages :(  In the end, we want the BBPD in Punta and just hope they can give us a reasonable package as it appears even their top one(tangerine) is only up to 25 or 35 people so it's the extra costs per person that worry me.  We want the cocktail hour on the rooftop with internation booze and the reception at the Bar Higuey (which I found on another thread) and it looks awesome!  If anyone has info on extra costs we will be facing, tips, or experience at this reception venue - please send drop me a note :)

 

Thanks all

Kayla
