I just got engaged about 2 weeks ago, and we've decided on BBGE for our wedding. I'm wondering though, if anyone knows about their 'garden' weddings. I've been on trip advisor scoping out reviews and pictures, and I've only seen photos of beach weddings... Any insight?
Congrats bmile,

Their garden wedding is at the lounge bar, the bar outside of the italian restuarant. I was told that it faces some grassy area. It's where a few brides are having their cocktail hour. I am having my ceremony there as appose to the beach (at least that's the plan so far, but I may change my mind once I get there).

Hey Jo...yes I can't believe that it's 2 weeks till we leave. I am actually using Vanessa Vargas. I will definitely let you know how everything goes. Anything that you would like to know while I am there? Anything that you want pics of?? Just let me know before I go.

Hello ladies, can someone please post or send me the current WC's email address and name? I can't access the form on the hotel's website.

 

Also does anyone know if you have to arrive at the hotel 2 days before getting married?

 

Thanks!

Can anyone tell me when I should start working with Candy, and if she will send me everything I need to actually plan the day? I'm not sure when I should start actually making plans.

Also I would love to hear about photographers, as we need to get on that for sure! With the weather here in Vancouver right now, September can't come soon enough!smile29.gif

Candy's email address is grupos1.bbge@bluebayresorts.com

You have to be at the resort 3 business days before for a civil (legal) ceremony, and I think 2 days for the other one.

Candy only sent me stuff yesterday and our wedding is on April 30. I had discussed some things with her assistant but I don't think anything was written down because she was asking me some things that I had already told them I wanted. So I don't think they really take note of anything until right before. I know that other people said they also didn't make there choices for things until 2 weeks before. So you are probably okay to wait awhile unless you are wanting some things that are really out of the ordinary that they may need to work on. They do 4-7 weddings a week, so I guess they just take care of things as they come.

My email is a_coccimiglio@hotmail.com.

If anyone needs pictures of the other restaurants, i.e. the French one, the Mexican one, the Steakhouse, I have some. Not sure how to post them, but let me know your email and I can send them.

Hi Jojo,

That rate is super cheap. What TA and supplier did you go through (ie: Sunquest, etc...). Thanks!

Hi Ladies,

 

Can someone send me pics of the restaurant for reception or if anyone had a beach reception? It appears that most brides on here are having a private restaurant for reception - is there a reason for that?

 

I'd be interested in a beach or outdoor option.

    • 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?
