Mu Wedding Day is for May 20 , 2013 :). People flying out from Canada, any good deals with Sunwing e.t.c our quotes are so high 1300 per person :( any suggestions?
Hi Karen, $1300/person (based on double occ for 7 days) actually is a good price for The Palace. I know 3 people who have stayed at The Palace and flew out of Toronto in the past couple of years and have paid $1300 - $1500/person through last minute vacation packages (and of course depending on the time of year they went). Have they quoted you anything through WestJet or Air Canada?

Hello! I recived a quote from westjet and sunwing but I do not want my friends and family to pay 1200 each. I have been to the mayan riviera this summer and I paid 1,000 with taxex included, stayed in at the grand sunset riviera maya platimun so i guess because i'm booking in months in advanced thats the reason the prices are high.

Congrats Karen + welcome to the forum! those prices sound really high.

I've often found Westjet fares online for under $800 to Canada. I've used the Westjet website, and also have had good luck with iTravel2000 and cheapfares.

Hope you're able to get a better deal......good luck :)

Congrats on your wedding date coming up! :) I am also getting married at the Barcleo Maya Palace. Has any other brides had issues about booking? The resort is completely booked and most of my guests will not be able to attend because of this issue :( I had to do things on a super tight budget and we will be going with the blueberry package and not having a reception there. We will be having a cocktail hour and then have a reception when we come back home so all of our friends and family can join in! We chose the blueberry basically because we did not want to have an after noon time. Happy planning :)

Hi ladies! Has anyone found a photographer?? I know Barcelo wants you to choose theirs, because they are charging a $500 pass fee for an outside photographer, but I really do not want to choose theirs..

Ya I thought their photographer was not very good at all and was expensive! So I sucked it up and paid the fee and booked Juan Navarro. He is reasonably priced but his portfolio is great and he had awesome reviews on here! I think I only ended up paying like $300 more with the fee and package for the same amount of time (didn't care about having printouts, just wanted the digitals).

Congrats mrsnova + julie 1025! both on your upcoming weddings and choosing a professional photographer to record the irreplaceable memories of that celebration!

You will be so happy you made that decision every time you (and your friends + family) view them and revisit those memories!

Well done! wishing you smooth planning and the best ever wedding of your dreams - Enjoy!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
