Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda Brides post here

Recommended Posts

Ladies,

 

If you asked me for the sushi restaurant pics, I just sent the emails - let me know if you don't get it. AMc83 - could you please send me the images you have from the steakhouse? What did Candy told you about the outside area on this restaurant? Does it have a beach view? Thank you!

Hi - Thanks again for the sushi restaunt pics. I heard that the steakhouse has a view of the beach, but you can't tell in the picture I have. I only have one and it shows the inside but I will send it to you. I found a few more pictures on tripadvisor (they have a ton of pics of the resort from prior guests) and you can see more of the steak restaurant, but still not the outside area. I am just going of the description that I got from Candy as well as the concierge desk. They both said has an ocean view...

We have just had our wedding date confirmed for 26 April 2010. I am sooooo excited but a little concerned reading some of the reviews. Just wondering how your visit went and if you have any tips for me. Big thanks Clare

Do you mind me asking what the price was? It's been difficult to get any pricing info on things other than $25/person for a private dinner and I'm not even sure how long that is for.

I would be quite interested in knowing the details on cocktails or appetizers, etc.

Thanks!
Chris

The price for the cocktail hour is about $10 per person, for a 100 guests list. They have options that are $10 and $15 per person, including the open bar. We are doing 2hrs, since I thought one was going to go too fast. We are doing at the lounge area (outside area by the italian restaurant, really modern looking) and are paying for the Ipod system - we are bringing our own music. Actually, for those of you that are talking about music and options, doing the Ipod system could be something to look into it 0 it costs $100 and they provide the system and speakers - can't get any cheaper than that! We are using this for the rehearsal and also for the ceremony, in between the band breaks...

Can you please send me photos of those restaurants to jon.joann@gmail.com. I'm planning on having a private reception as well. Do you know if we can have private receptions in any restaurants other than 1) beach, 2) pool side, 3) convention room and 4) Asian restaurant?

Just wanted to let you know that we need to do something about the prices being quoted for rooms. I just found on hotels.com rooms for 2 adults, at the weekend of my wedding (May 23rd) for $149 for two people - that's $60 less than the quote I got and I am bringing 110 people to the resort! I cannot believe it!
I am planning on calling Candy this weekend to discuss and also Dario, the reservation manager. Cecilia originally gave me the prices for the rooms, but she is no longer there.
Pribrzl,

Any luck with negotiating the price with Candy?
My future in-laws are coming from Philadelphia and I'm looking for pricing for them b'cos the rates that I got from my travel agent is for Calgary and Vancouver only. I just went to hotels.com but couldn't find BBGE there, they have Blue Bay Cancun though. So, I'm thinking that I may not have searched correctly. Could you tell me which website to go to?


Thanks!

It always works like this everywhere you go, I travel more than I would like to think I do, and I can go to the same place everyweekend and get a different quote from a different person everytime.... Give them a call and talk to a manager!
:)
bclrgrl,

Did some of your guest use a different agent that you did and ended up paying more? For those who booked on their own, do you know what websites they went to? Did they only get the flight on their own or both accomodation + flight? Did you get land rates from your TA as well?

I'm tyring to look for guest coming from: 1) US, 2) Calgary and 3) Vancouver.

For those from US, what tour operators would you recommend? I checked out Apple and Funjet but not familiar with any other American tour operators.

It's such a headache trying to find cheaper rates for ppl. I thought I've already found the best flight+accom and accom-only rate from my TA but I know discovered that it's cheaper to book flight separately and use the land rates that I got from my TA.


Thanks!

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
