As for the per person charge. Yes, there is. There is a bar fee ($5 per person per hour) and then a food charge. Although it is an all inclusive, you are paying for the service and set up.
I have heard wonderful things about the dinner that comes with the packages though, it's just not private.
Do you think I could even plan a dinner for 75 ppl that isn't private? That seems almost silly...but I guess anything is possible in some of the huge restaurants. Do you have any idea what the per person charge is for a private dinner?

I had the same questions and I got some answers from the WC. I will have a lot of people at my reception as well. They will block off in area in one of the a la carte restaurants (no charge) OR you can have it outside near one of the pools for additional charge per person. If it rains, they will put everyone in a conf. room (if there's availibilty). Here's some of the options for the outside dinner:

 

Gala dinner:

6 starters, 2 soups, 6 main dishes (with seafood), dessert 72 US$/pers

 

BBQ dinner:

5 starters, 5 main dishes, dessert buffet 46 US$/pers

 

Mexican night:

5 starters, 5 main dishes, dessert buffet 46 US$/pers

 

Caribbean night:

5 starters, 5 main dishes, dessert buffet 48 US$/pers

 

Lobster Dinner/ Special Luxury Menu At a specialty restaurant 60 US$/pers

At a location out of the restaurants 100US$/pers

 

I can provide more info if you need it. The WC emailed me whats on the menu with the Gala, BBQ dinner etc..

 

I think i am going to have the dinner in an a la carte restaurant b/c of wind, bugs etc.. The WC said since we have so many people that we have one set menu- I said that's impossible b/c not everyone wants the same entree and that's just ridiculous. She said i woul have to provide a list a head of time, 10 want chicken 10 want steak etc... You can do the same thing.

I am going to the resort next weekend for a site inspection and to meet with the WC. i can post more when i get back.

Thanks! What I was hoping for was a private reception at an indoor location...bummer. I agree with you about bugs and wind. I went to a restaurant in the DR during a wedding dinner (it was a blocked off section of tables) and I could hear all of their speeches and everything. So I think I'm trying to stay away from having the reception in an a la carte... But maybe the Gran Bahia has a much better set up...let me know when you get back!

Hey girls! I just wanted to let you know that the bar setup is $5 per person for the first hour and $3 per person for each additional hour. (So two hours would work out to $8 per person).

 

Cassondra, I'm sure you could see about renting the conference room, if they let people use it as back up, I'm sure they'd rent it outright.

Well, I got engaged a month ago! And I've finally officially set the date with the Gran Bahia Akumal. DANG, they are difficult... but i don't care!

Did you have to fill out the wedding application? Ours has income and stuff about debt/assets on it? Did you fill that out or leave it blank?

I didn't fill out any application that had our income and assets on it. The only questions I had to answers was: Names, Wedding Date Requested, Wedding time requested, approximate # of guests, # of kids, only those sort of q's.

 

What kind of application did you get smile43.gif

Oh, I know why smile35.gif we are getting married before we actually get there but shhhh... no one knows. Hehe.

 

If I were you I would just round it off. It's kind of stupid why they need to know your income anyway.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
