    Sorry, more to say. Haha No they don't offer an incentive at the Bahia for more rooms. If they did I would have qualified. However, my travel provider, Jubilee Travel, does. My FI and I have out entire 2 week hotel + flight free because for every 13th person we booked we got a free trip (well, the equivalent).

      We're also getting married at GBP in January 2014 and we haven't really started any planning yet. It took a few weeks for the resort to initially get back to us when we first made contact with them, and they told us to email them toward the end of August to start the planning. Liz :)

              I'm really confused about the poolside reception.... is there a one big group fee for pool rental reception, DJ, and cocktails.... or do we pay separate for each one?

                Katlew, just book your holiday first. They WILL NOT book your wedding if you have not booked your vacation. Then just email Paloma (not sure what email you are using but it's the groupsmx@ one) and wait for a response. Be clear in the email about your arrival and departure date. I'd put something like, "booked and now wedding date required" as your subject line. Request what you want specifically: location, date and time. Once you get a response for your wedding date and time, you will not hear from them again until 4-6 months before the wedding. And that's ok! It's just how it works. You will not be able to book your poolside reception until those 4-6 months ahead, but rest assured it will be fine.

                I got all up in arms because I hadn't heard from anybody and got an email from Paloma stating she tells the coordinators to focus on the short-term only, because otherwise the volume of weddings is just impossible to deal with at once - which makes sense. There literally aren't enough hours in the day for those ladies and they do work very hard but just sucks to wait. It will be fine!!! Haha says the girl who was freaking out about waiting and then realized within a couple of emails it all just came together :)

                So then I should defientely just booked our trip now, and then email them - telling them my trip is booked, and tell them the day I want to have the wedding, and the place (e.g., gazebo), etc?

                 

                Ahh! So nervous.

                  Yep, just book your trip if you want it at the Bahia. Then email them. Then wait. For a long time. But it will be fine.

                   

                  The poolside reception price includes alcohol, lighting, seating, and DJ with sound set-up. No light-up dance floor though. Depending on how many people you have you will be given 2 prices. On for special cocktails ($$ for pina coladas, sparkling wine, margaritas and beer only) and one for full bar ($$$$$). But that won't be for ages, probably March or later next year if you are in August.

                   

                  So far I haven't read about anybody being denied their request for a poolside reception or any of the things that are super important to them, so as much as the waiting sucks it all seems to work out.

                   

                  Gemma2014, I seem to have been lucky I guess. From the time I first contacted them until I had a firm, set in stone wedding date and time it was probably 2 weeks or less and I got to send out invitations lickety-split. And fight for what you want! They tried to tell me with 13 months in advance that the only time slot available for my wedding was noon. Ridiculous. I said, politely, that that ain't happening whatsoever and it was changed to a much more appropriate 4pm. It seemed to me the that if you don't request it specifically they just try to fill up the day with the worst times filled first. But I don't know.
