Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if we have a formal type rehersal with Chandlyn?

 

Also, does anyone know the extensions of the people at the hotel...say spa, front desk as I am making a newsletter thingy up now and though that it might be helpful....23 days until we leave!!!!

My wedding is 6:00pm on Thursday, April 28th.

We've booked a rehearsal for 5:30pm on Wednesday, April 29th.

 

We just asked in an email and she booked it for us :)

We did the same as Tris...ours is also booked for 6 and I requested the Grill for dinner following; we wanted Don Pablos but our groups too big.  To request your rehersal dinner email Andrea at: prexecutivebpjam@bahia-principe.com 

It used to be Melissa but I guess she left too?!

Not that I know of...I think it was Akua that had talked about doing this and so I sent an email to that email address and thats when they said our group was too large for Don Pablos but they could accomodate us in either the Italian or the Grill restaurants...I think its just more to group us together?!

 

Here's what I sent: 

 

Hi Melissa,
I was informed that I could contact you in regards to reserving a section of a restaurant for our wedding party following our rehearsal at the gazebo?  If so, this is something that I would like to do.  We have a group of 31 people and if we could eat at Don Pablos, that would be great.  Our wedding is on Saturday, May 7th so our rehearsal will be on Friday, May 6th at 6;00 so if we could make the reservation for 7:00, I would greatly appreciate it!   
 
Thank you so very much for your help!

 

Here's their reply:

 

 

Good Afternoon

Let me apologize as Melissa is not with us anymore. I will be the one now in charge of your account.

Because of the size of your group we are not able to accommodate you in the Don Pablo restaurant as it is too small. We do have the Garden Grill or the Dolce Vitae which can hold a group of your size. Please let me no which of the two you decide.

I will have to ask that you speak with the wedding coordinator about your rehearsal dinner once the final decisions have been made she will correspond with me and i will do the booking.

If you have anymore queries please feel free to contact me.

kind regards

I would guess that yellow is the usual set-up because I didnt specify any colour. I'm sure you could always email to ask (and hope you get a response!).

We have a photo session set up with our photographer from 430-645 and have dinner set in the Grill restaurant for our wedding party at 645pm...I didnt factor any time in to meet with Chandlyn to go over the stuff...maybe I will email her and ask to meet at 4pm so go over it quickly, I dont think there should be that much stuff.....right???

On the subject of centrepieces, has anyone asked Chandlyn about the options they have available there?  Or is everyone just bringing their own?  Last email she sent, she told me that all of that decor stuff could be arranged once we arrived.

 

I've picked up some seashells and starfish, and a whole bunch of tea lights, but haven't really thought too much beyond that!  Has anyone priced out floral arrangements as centrepieces?

i'm not doing centerpieces. Dont want to worry about having to bring down more things in the suitcases. i'm sure the tables will be nice enough on their own.

 

So just to ask again, cuz no one replied to me- does anybody know where on the martha sewart site i can find that thing to print off so i can make a list of everyone's room numbers etc? i looked the other day but couldn't find it anywhere and i really don't want to go thru this whole thread all over again to find where it was talked about :S
