I think this vendor is considered an outside vendor. I really hate how the resorts charge a vendor fee when using someone from the outside. I want to avoid paying the fee and was wondering if anyone has used the make up artists within the Barcelo Maya resort.

@@edyta91 I am also getting married at the Barcelo in April 2019! Congrats! 
I'm looking for a photographer/videographer myself. I've tried finding reviews about Novia Mia but havent found very many which I find odd. You'd think if they were a reputable company they would have a lot of reviews. So far I'm considering other photographers as some of their prices with the $700 resort fee still end up being cheaper than Novia Mia. Novia Mia also has I think about 8 photographers, so I would contact them to make sure you know which one will be photographing your wedding.

 

The no review thing bugs me though so we may be going with another company. They also haven't been overly friendly over email or willing to budge much on prices. 

 

I'm looking at the following photographers:

 

Cecilia Dumas

Photo Studio AB

 

They're prices are reasonable (cheaper than Novia Mia including the resort fee).

 

Please let me know if you find out more info about Novia Mia  :)

Hello,

my wedding is no over and I can tell you about Novia Mia in case you're still looking for a photographer. I am very satisfied with their services. A huge perk of using the in house photographer is that they know all the good spots within the resort. Its been a week since the wedding and we already have about 50 photos from our special day. The pictures are very nice and creative. We ended up asking for 5 hours and they were nice enough to accommodate us with a 1 hour break without an extra charge. It gave us a little time between the nuptial and the cocktail hour as well as the sunset lighting we wanted. 

They definitely knew what they were doing and I am very happy I chose them. final price for 5 hours with 1 hr break was $2060 and this price cant be beat with other photographers in the area as they ask for a dinner to be served when more than 5 hrs of work and then the vendor fee, it comes out to be too expensive.

Also, make up I've used Vo Evolution, look them up on facebook, instagram. They did an amazing job on me, moms and my sister. I HIGHLY recommend them!

Also, Novia Mia is available on Facebook and Instagram under Novia Mia photography they have plenty of photos there to look from and to get an idea of their work. If you want to look at my photos look for the post with Edyta and Marcin barcelo maya grand resort post :)

 

I hope this helps :)

The resort is hands down the best resort Ive ever been to. I've been there 2 times, my family loved it so much. I'm deff going back there now as a mom. They are extremely family friendly resort as well, the best one around. For a photographer I went with novia Mia which is the resort photographer and they were amazing they knew all the secret spots, we got our pictures sneak peak within a week and the rest of them within 8 weeks. Make up was done by off site/ out of resort vendor voevolution. Check them out in Facebook or Instagram they are amazing. St the time they didn't have their make up truck so we went to a different resort paid $40 instead of her coming to barcelo and having to pay vendor fee of $750. They did my make up and hair, my sister, mom and mom in law. Everything stayed in place till the next day. I couldn't be happier with my choices. I hope this helps.

    • Hello Guys, Can you please suggest me the best destination wedding places on globally, that must be with greenery and price must be cost-effective. i have searched on google too, its showing a-lot of places. But this is the platform where i can found real-time experience people.   
    • Greetings. I'm really confused because my younger sister's marriage is fixed. Now the date is fixed for April 15th. We are planning to conduct a function only with minimal members. I neec to find out a best wedding venue or organizer. I need your advice which will be really helpful. Thank you
    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
