    Thanks!  I spoke with Paloma, and she has been amazing today!  I am officially booked for December 16th at 4:00 pm!  My WC is going to be Jazmin.  The exact date and time we had at the Grand Riviera Princess.  I am a firm believer in everything happens for a reason, and I guess we were meant to get married at the Bahia!  :)

     

    We have approximately 50 guests coming.  I am thinking we will do the dinner and maybe a private poolside reception after?  From what I understand, the dinner is included in our package (the Remember Package), and then we will pay per person for the poolside reception?

     

    Is anyone else going to be there between December 12 and 26?  :)
     

    Hi Angie,

     

    Everything does happen for a reason...  You won't regret chosing GPB!

     

    Good Luck,

     

    Thao

      How much do you recommend I put in my budget for photographs? I have absolutely no idea what is an appropriate amount so if you can give me a ballpark around how much it will cost to use the resort photographer I would greatly appreciate it :)

      Thx!

      We budgeted $1500 for photos and ended up spending $2500.  This may seems expensive, but trust me, they are worth it.  This included coverage of my whole wedding day and reception till 11pm.  We felt so bad and told Juan and Nestor they could go home after an hour and a half at the reception, but they were so professional and wanted to stay.  

       

       

      I have had nothing but compliments on my photos!!! I've sent a few girls on BDW a link to my photos and would be happy to send you it as well.  Just pick a price that you are comfortable with and Arrecife will work with your budget.

       

      Good luck and let me know if you need anything else,

       

      Thao

            Patourn - do you have the pricing for the private poolside reception?  We don't want to do the dinner or canapes, just drinks and the DJ.  Jazmin is away until tomorrow, but I'm dying to look over the prices.  He he.  Thanks!

                    You're the best, Patricia!  Thank you! 

                     

                    I just spent the last 2 days reading this board, and you girls have given us so much information, I feel so at ease having our wedding here.  I can't believe we leave in 3 weeks on Sunday!

                     

                    I just sent an email to DJ Bijan to see if he is available on our date.  Fingers crossed!

                     

                    I look forward to the rest of my planning with you ladies!
