    I'd start by picking the wedding package you like, booking the restaurant, and the entertainment you'd like, if any (i.e. steel drum band, hat field dancers, gazebo and dj, etc).  It's been my experience that the restaurant and entertainments gets booked up rather quickly so the sooner you put in your request the better chance you'll have of getting exactly what you want.

      I have to agree!  Book your date, wedding time, location, package and entertainment first!

       

      That being said, months later I keep getting the response that "we have requested this restaurant for you but it cannot be confirmed by the restaurant until 1 month prior to the event" or "we have noted your request for the gazebo and bartenders for your reception".  Is anyone else getting this?  I'm looking for a "yes, this is confirmed!"!

          Agreed...as long as we have somewhere for our entire group to eat, I'm not super worried!  The only thing is that I already put the name of the italian restaurant on our invites and website, so it would look a little bit funny if it changed all of a sudden! I'm just hoping that its first come, first served as they said, and that they don't favour the larger groups as it would bring in more $!  We're only 18 people as it stands, so we're pretty tiny!

            We got married there on May 7th.  We were told the same thing regarding the restaraunt...we wanted the Italian...the reason they cannot confirm it for you is the schedule varies and depending on the amount of people at the resort at the given time, they close down restaraunts.  We ended up eating at the Grill and it was great...They can tell you that it is confirmed and it still might end up changing...just relax...it all works out.

              Hello everyone,

              I am trying to secure a wedding date for the Gran Bahia Jamaica.  I already emailed Chandlyn at weddingplannerbpjam@bahia-principe.com  requesting November 16th, 2012 as my wedding date.  I recieved a response from the assistant coordinator, Donnalee who said there are no dates available this year.  I replied back stating that I asked for 2012, and I am still waiting for a response.  (in actuality I mentioned it 2 times in the email and the date was even in the subject line).

               

              Has anyone else had any trouble with the wedding coordinators there? I don't know who I should deal with? I have no clue how to contact them besides email, and no one is responding to me.  I wish people would just read things properly before responding.  I really want my wedding at the Gran Bahia and I have already negotiated pricing for my guests.

               

              Any help would be appreciated.

               

              Thank you

              PrincessKO

              That happened to me when I went to book my wedding date.  It was December 2010 and I was trying to book my wedding date for January 2012, and they thought I meant January 2011.  It was frustrating until finally they under stood and I booked my date. You are planning really early so it should be no problem getting the date you want, so dont stress about that! 


              You can also call them.  I had to call them once and change our wedding date due to flight schedule changes.  The only thing is if you call them there is a chance you may not even get a hold of them if they are not in the office.  It sometimes takes a week or two to get replies back to emails, so just be patient.  They wedding coordinators are extremely busy at this resort.

                Thanks for the insight JayKay.  It's very reassuring to hear someone else's experiences.  How is your planning experience to this point? 

                 

                Right now, I am torn between the Gran Bahia and the RIU Ocho Rios.  My fiance and I both agree that pricing for our guests is what matters the most, and both resorts offer comparable prices.  I've been to the Gran Bahia back in 2007 when they first opened.  The only thing that I didn't like at that point was that because the hotel chain is Spanish, they had a lot of Spanish influence.  It was wierd to be in Jamaica and not have tradition Jerk Chicken while on the resort.  Can anyone tell me if the resort has adopted more Jamaican influences since it has opened? I heard from friends that the RIU does have more Jamaican culture at their resort. Just so you know, I've been for 4 other Gran Bahia hotels before, so I do really like the chain of resorts.
