    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).

      Hi Sarah,

      It's coming up soon!! Have fun and congratulations!!

      I can't wait to hear your reviews, and review of your photographer. I'm in the midst of choosing a photographer, there's so many out there...you're using Sasha aren't ya.

        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!

              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.

                  AMC83, I would love to see the pics of the reception locations, can you send them to me? kerri_skowron@hotmail.com. Thanks! :)

                    The land only rate my TA quote is CAD$750 for 7 nights, which is CAD$107 per person per night based on double occupancy.
                    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.
