currently i'm looking at invitations and save the dates as well as vendors in the area. i'm glad someone started this thread and congratulations to all 2014 brides!!
I've stayed at Barcelo's before and have always been happy with their facilities & service. The Barcelo Maya seems to be accomodating for many different needs (luxury vs. value, small resorts vs. large complex where guests have the option to explore)
As for the weather, I found this on a website for a photographer that we're considering:
SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER
In September and October the ocean water is hot from the summer heat. The outside temperature drops making daytime temps hot but bearable. Evenings are beautiful and you can still swim at night and be comfortable. This is also hurricane season along the Atlantic coast. Hurricanes or tropical storms can occur anytime between June and December, however the common period is September - November. It is advisable to pay close attention to weather reports during these months.
That being said, pricing is usually cheaper this time of year - and you may get perfect weather!
