Booking Barcelo Maya Through Airtransat

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


This is my first post, we are not technically engaged yet but have picked the ring and have started planning.


We are looking at the Barcelo Maya Colonial and Palace. We would be flying from Calgary and everyone else from Toronto. We would be inviting a total of 38 adults and 8 kids. We would als9 be booking the airtransat euphoria wedding package.


Does anyone have any experience with booking this wedding package? We would be doing a symbolic ceremony in Mexico, would be still need a judge?


Has anyone booked the Barcelo Maya? Any tips?


Thanks so much!

Welcome Sarah and congrats!


I'm not a Barcelo bride but I am from Calgary :)


From my experience when you book a symbolic the hotel will have someone do the ceremony for you. You don't pay extra for the minister. Where I got married it was an actual minister but sometimes your WC or someone who works at the resort may also do it, as it's not legal. Your wedding department should be able to answer that.


If you search the Barcelo on the search bar up top you will find some active threads for your resort. I know their are a few brides on here right now planning weddings there.


Good luck

    • 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.
