Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how much the guest pass cost for Gran Bahia Principe resort?  I have been given one quote of $80 but another bride told me she was quoted $150 so I wanted to be sure because I have 2 guest that are not staying at the resort.

 

Also, did anyone have to pay guest pass for DJ, photograpphers,etc?  I asked Chandlyn and all she said was let her know who for security but never answered my question about the cost of it or even if there was one.

thanks. I really like both of them. the wedding band is a US jewellers called Gordon's. their stuff is really nice and very reasonably priced. my FI's ring is either Tungsten or Titanium - he hasn't finalized his decision yet, but Gordon's has a pretty good selection of both.

my understanding is the guest pass is $75 per and yes, if your photographer is not the resort one, then you need to pay. I guess if you're using a DJ that isn't from the resort either then you would need a pass for them. Chandlyn told me that if they aren't using any hotel facilities like restaurants, you don't pay, but if you want your guests to eat with you, then I guess you need to pay for them.

Thank you much ACW271011...As soon as I checked this, I finally got a response from Chandlyn.  Basically saying the same as you.  if they are there for a quick min (like the florists) then I don't need a pass...but I do need one for the photographer, etc because they are there long term.

 

Thanks!

I'm really surprised to hear this, because when I asked Chandlyn in March she advised that there are no vendor fees or guest passes required!  This must have been a more recent change!  I hate that you have to stay so on top of them!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
