  1. Gran Bahia Principe in Runaway Bay, Jamaica Photographer: Roan Robinson ROANPHOTOGRAPHY.COM
  2. Hello Ladies!!! Its been almost 2 months since I got married at the Gran Bahia Principe & it was amazing. I don't have the time or energy right now to write up a review but I did want to show you that I have an album on my page with some of the wedding pics. It was absolutely beautiful and everything went great. The wedding planners were helpful & so was everyone else. I hired my photographer based out of Negril and he was AMAZING. Looking at the pics you will for sure see that =) I promise I will write something up sometime soon, the only advice I can give right now is DO NOT STRESS!!! You are planning a destination wedding for a reason, you will get there and plan everything at that time. It really is so simple and stress free, as long as you treat it that way. TTYL!! <3 Mrs. Raborg
  3. It seems as if the ones I got done at the salon would have stayed on FOREVER. In the two days I had them on I was in the pool, snorkeling, and in the Jamaican sun.
  4. From experience, if you plan to do eyelash extensions DEF TRY THEM OUT BEFORE you get them done for the wedding. I got them done (for the first time ever) on Tuesday and left for my destination wedding on Friday. I HATED them but they were already glued on and I didnt have time to get them removed that day. I thought they looked to fake for me and they felt soooo weird. I just couldnt get used to them and really wish I would have tested it out before that. I ended up giving them a chance Wednesday but had decided on Thursday (the night before the wedding) to take them off. Thank goodness I bought eyelash remover solution the night I got them done just in case, but even with the solution it was SO painful to get them off! OMG my poor eyes were in pain and swollen, but thankfully they were fine for our wedding the next day. I am not saying dont get them done because I do feel like if you get them done right then can look beautiful. BUT what I can not stress enough is to DEF DEF DEF try them out a few months before the wedding. Hope that helps ladies!! =)
  5. Hi ladies, just wondering if anyone rented the disco for their reception? Or if anyone knows if there is a bar at the disco? I am thinking of doing this for after dinner but would like to know if I would have to worry about drinks? Thanks so much! =)
  6. I think thats great advice JayKay .. thanks so much! I have a feeling they will tell me I need to def have the minimum amount of ppl. So I guess now I need to figure out what to do about our dinner/reception. I dont mind doing the free dinner, but I really wanted to have everything (dinner and dance) at the same place so we could do everything the way we wanted to. Looks like I have some figuring out to do.
  7. Thanks Erin! Gotta question ... when you got there tho, and met with them .. how did they go about the details of hyw many people you had? I was worried about not having the minimum amount of people they said is needed for the Piscis, but I dont see how they are really going to know this anyway .. what are your thoughts about it?
  8. Thats exactly what I was thinking Kim. I agree that they misunderstand things a lot .. which is why we better save any and all emails. But yeah, thanks a lot for letting me know when you do =)
  9. Okay ladies .. just let me know what you think ... So for our dinner and reception we are planning on renting out the Piscis restaurant which is exactly what we want to do. I confirmed this with Donnalee a million times just to make sure that its in my file that that is what we want to do. As of right now including us there is 25 people coming .. and still a possibility of more before the wedding in June BUT i doubt enough people to meet there 45 ppl minimum to rent out the restaurant. We are doing the free package, so after 16 ppl its $20 per person. Now with the restaurant if were paying the $1700 to rent it out I don't see why it matters how many ppl we have there, but since they say it does I'm wondering how their even gonna know how many ppl are actually there anyway. We really want to rent it out, so if its a money issue then we dont mind paying the extra $20 per person so say we have 45 ppl. But, I'm just nervous that when we get there and we dont have the 45 people and they dont care that we would still pay as if we did, that at that point I'm gonna have an even bigger issue as far as not having a place all set for dancing and things like that. What should I do?! Take the chance of going there to still see if we can do the Piscis restaurant, or just be honest with them now and set up a different plan for dinner and reception? Did I mention we still realllllllly want the Piscis restaurant tho? lol Ugh! I'm just ready to get to Jamaica, be married, and have all this planning over with! haha =)
