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.
