Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica

Recommended Posts

Hey ChrisBC,

 

I didnt use destinationweddings.com, but I did use a travel agency weddingsbyoceans.com. They only deal with destination weddings so they seem to have a hook-ups with pricing. At the time that we booked we were getting quotes for $1700pp from most other TA, but they got us $1420pp. Right now (2.5months before the wedding) the flights are going for the same price, but I wanted to book early because we have so many people coming with us and I wanted us all on the same flight. So far we have 48 people booked and are expecting 10-16 more people....When I booked with them I had to give a deposit and then each guest had to give a $200 deposit to hold their spot, and the remainder is due mid September (2months before we leave).

 

I dont mind the questions!! Thats what the forum is all about!!

 

Good Luck!!

Thats sounds good! So far I made the first step in contacting Beverly, how quickly did she get back to you? 

And just found out a relative is using destinationweddings.com for her wedding so I feel better about that. 

 

Did the gran bahia meet your expectations when it came to decor for the ceremony and reception? Did they have many options for table linens and floral center pieces, gazebo decor, the cake etc?

We asked twice - for some reason she answers parts of the email dont know why,

 

what is the recommended timeframe from now to booking accommodations and submitting the 25% deposit?

 we want to know so we can be certain the date is surely ours before we send out stds...(yes it is confirmed but we dont feel its secure without a deposit) 
 
anyone know the answer to this?
 
thanks!

Sometimes I find Beverly random. lol. She often answers something and not everything, or I'll think of another question after sending an email, and she answered the 2nd email and not the first. So I have taken to sending her an email, and if its not all answered within a few (3-4days) I will resend it and state that I have already sent this email, but I havent heard back....lol....she generally then responds within a day...try that!

To be honest I havent even thought of table linens, cake, etc. I have told her my colour is blue, so I hope whatever she comes up with looks good! cross your fingers for me!!

Hey All,

We just put our deposit down for 10 people with our TA to secure the rate until April 30, 2011 :) I hope everyone books by then to save confusion !  Ive also booked our wedding date with beverly ! we are getting married Oct 18, 2011 :) cant wait !

Beverly will handle everything when you get down there from what I have heard from other brides who was married at GBP, so no need to worry about table linens, decorations etc Also if you want favors for the table ie a bottle of Appleton rum beverly will get this for you all you need to do is ask :) I cant wait to start planning and looking for my dress !!! woot woot :)

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
