Gran Bahia Principe Bavaro Wedding Dance

We have decided not to have the open bar since we were told they will serve domestic wine and beer just not other mixed drinks. If there are guests that want something else I think we will send someone out to the bar and get a few to bring back. The costs certainly add up and considering the packages aren't that cheap you think they could come up with one that covers everything.
What Date is your ceremony - we might be there on the same week? Ours is on the 22nd. The WC also offered me a four drink slection that is available to add to the drinks included in the pakcage. The drink package consists of mojitos, pina colada, margarita and san francisco. She said if we would like to add these drinks to the menu it would cost and additional $5.50 per person USD...thought i would let you know...

Thought the open bar was pretty pricey considering you are at an all inclusive resort. I asked what liquor would be available at the private reception if we did not do open bar and at first we were told only domestic wines and then when I asked again now they are saying also domestic beer.
When did you book your private reception. I am wondering if we are a little late since our date is earlier than yours.
We just booked our private reception on Monday. I'm not sure how many weddings they are averaging per day at this resort but you might want to ask if the locations that you prefer are still available - you can always change other things later, just make sure you get the location! The private reception includes domestic wine and beer as well as pop and juice. The WC offered me an additional drink selection consisting of mojitos, pina coladas, margaritas and san franciscos for $5.5 per person. I thought it was a good price. We also do not have to pay the extra per person with the Unforgettable package and the private reception - which i just found out the other day. its good to know because this will save us at least $500.00USD! We would like to have our reception extended until 12:00 which is available if you purchase an Open Bar from 10:30 - 12:00 at $24 per person. I didnt want it all to be over at 10:30 although we could move it to another bar on the property - havent decided on that yet. Hope this helps! Good luck!

I received two gazebo pictures from the WC - Gazebo 1 is the huge white gazebo located in the garden. Its amazing! Gazebo 2 was a metal type gazebo with a straw roof located in and amongst some buildings. It was cute - but not elegant like Gazebo 1. I believe these are the only 2 gazebo's on site. I can provide pictures if you send me your email address.

Hope this helps!

    • 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?
