Has anyone been to Breezes Runaway Bay?

Recommended Posts

The way Keisha explained it to me is that the photographer will take as many photos, for as long as you want, but that if you do the 48 photos package you're paying for the prints of 48 photos. If you want to pay 100 more for the CD you'll get the 48 photos digitally as well (who wouldn't want that??) and that if you wanted additional photos - you'd "negotiate" with the photographer on the price. Definitely a strange way to do it. If someone in your group is a photographer and you trust that individual to capture the special moments on your big day - I would definitely do that.


We saw several wedding while we were there - no large groups. Mostly just couples there by themselves although I did speak with a couple of newlyweds who had been married a few days prior. She said they had about 35 guests and although she was quite nervous about what the resort would look like or how the wedding would come out (she hadn't done a site visit) she was pleased with the way everything came out. They got married in the chapel and had dinner with their guests at the japanese restaurant.


Are you using a local florist for your flowers or are the wedding coordinators pulling that together for you? I'm in the process of collecting quotes from several florists for both the ceremony and reception but haven't made a selection just yet. Let me know if you've had a good experience with one!

That is great information, and I agree, very strange way to price things. I would guess though, that you should be able to get all of the images on CD for a couple hundred dollars. I did get some more sample pictures too, just let me know if you'd like to see them.


As for flowers, we're just going to go with whatever the choices are at the resort. We're only having about 25 people, so we're not having a private reception either. We'll have a fairly large reception when we get home, so that's where a lot of our budget is going towards.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
