Barcelo Bride 2015

Recommended Posts

We got engaged in February 2014 and by May had booked our wedding for the Barcelo Maya Resort for next May 21, 2015.  We just got back from a quick vacation there to make sure it was all we wanted and we can't wait to go back with all our friends and family for our wedding! We will be getting married at the newly renovated Barcelo Beach property and love that it will now be a stay at 1 play at 4!

I would like to hear about your visit @@cometgirl  What did you like most about the Barcelo resorts?  We have chosen Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe.  We have never been there but everything that we have researched has been great and we are very much looking forward to our wedding there.

@@GingerBride - We knew we wanted to do a destination wedding and one of the key things we wanted was a resort property that had more than 1 hotel. We had done the Riu's before and it can be quite fun to Riu bar hop just for a change of scenery. Our friend had gotten married at the Riu so we looked at other resorts like Barcelo, Grand Bahia and Iberostar.  We are so happy with the Barcelo and we actually stayed at the Palace for our trip. The food was amazing and the property is beautiful. There are so many activities and with the renovations going on at the Beach Resort, it is only going to get better.  

 

I did notice your other post as well regarding packages/photographer etc.

Packages: We are doing the Mint Breeze package as well as I like the idea of toes in sand for the ceremony and a somewhat formal reception inside! We are expecting about 50-60 people for ours, so it also gets quite costly on the beach.  

 

Photography: We opted for an outside photographer - Octavio Montes.  We met with the resort photographer while we were there as well as Octavio and just found a better vibe with Octavio.  The feeling we got from the resort photographer was that their packages are a bit more rigid and not as flexible (ie: you only get edited photos if you do the photobooks).  Even with the outside vendor fee we are paying the equivalent to the resort packages and he is offering a 10% discount right now. If you want to check out his work: www.octaviomontes.com.  

 

Hair/Make-up: 2 of my friends do hair and make up, so I am fortunate to have them coming to the wedding! 

 

OOT bags: Yes we will be doing them, but I have not completely decided what is going in them yet.  Ill keep you posted when I do figure it all out.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
