    I know! Some day I'd like to photograph a wedding at the Bahia (since I know the resort pretty well) and that's where I'd do the trash the dress. It's SO beautiful and the sand is powder soft. It'd be amazing!

      Well I am officially confused. We spoke with the resort and they said there is no new restaurant policy and that it is a rumor only. So I've emailed Air Canada to see what the deal is and get the policy explained to me in simple terms. I also asked them whether this is a hotel policy or if it just pertains to Air Canada guests. Will let you know what I find out.

      We are also a bit mad b/c we found out today that there is another wedding at our resort on the same day. When we booked, we were told that there was a 1 wedding a day policy at each resort. But strangely enough we found out about this other wedding b/c we know the people getting married...from the same hometown!! It is just scary that Jazmin will now have two weddings on the same day and we might not get the same quality that we were hoping for. Or that we might not get our first choice of something even though we booked well before this other couple. Just frustrating to be told one thing only to find out its not true.

      I understand your frustrations... but it's true that there is more than one wedding a day. I think there was THREE on my wedding day at my ONE resort! Ha! In fact, I KNOW there was at least three. But don't worry. They deal with multiple weddings every single day and they run like clockwork. Your wedding will be beautiful and flawless and exactly what you want.

        Okay, so... my TA had to go through hell to get decent rates from GBP... the Travel agency actually had to drop them as a resort because they would not work with them, and they had to book our whole trip (group) through a different wholesaler agency. Needless to say, last week when I received a call from the TA saying we may not be able to have the wedding there, I freaked out. But, they managed to figure out a plan and now it's on!! Yeah!!

            Don't panic!!! I know, I have been doing this a lot lately, if someone breathes the wrong way lol... If worst comes to worst, even though it is a pain in the butt, call her at the resort. I was not getting a response once and I called and got a hold of her personally.
