The Barceló Guatemala City***** hotel offers wonderful rooms for celebrating one of the most important and desirable events in a couple’s life: your wedding. Knowing what this means to you, we want to be on hand to help you prepare for this magic and symbolic event.
Celebrate your wedding at the Barceló Guatemala City Hotel
Civil wedding: this wedding will be legally binding once you return to your country
Symbolic wedding: ideal for renewing your wedding vows. There will be vows and rings. The wedding is not legally valid; it is a symbolic act officiated by a non-denominational minister
Jewish wedding: you can hold your Jewish wedding in the open air or at the synagogue
Advice and suggestions
It is advisable to choose the date of your wedding between 6 months and one year in advance. Try to plan your wedding guest list in advance. If in the end more people than you expected will be accompanying you, you will need to make changes to the meal, drinks, etc.
If you decide to have a buffet, you can serve canapés or snacks
Drinks and liqueurs
Champagne is the traditional drink for toasts, but you need to think about drinks for everyone: alcoholic (white and red wine, whiskey, rum...) and non-alcoholic (fruit juice, fizzy drinks...)
You need to consider the room capacity, tables. If you decide on a lot of decorations, your guests could find it irritating. If your wedding is at night you could use candles to create a romantic atmosphere. Don't forget that your table needs to be different so that guests know where the top table is
We have also created the Barceló Wedding Club where you can find information on special promotions on our services and invitations to different activities at the hotel. Once you confirm your event, you will become a member of this exclusive club.
These events can take place all year round.
Catholic ceremonies are not held during lent. Jewish ceremonies vary according to how orthodox the participants are. The wedding cannot take place on a Saturday since it is the day of rest, or 3 weeks after the summer, or Easter or on Jewish festivals that are dates of religious significance.
