Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Thank you and YES I CAN'T WAIT! He is still not here. They don't let you go longer than a week without inducing you so I know he will be here by Saturday but man he must be very comfy in there :)

 

I meant to ask you, did you decide on parasols for your bridesmaids? I am still thinking/looking for alternatives to flowers for the bridesmaids that don't cost an arm and a leg. I saw somewhere on here a really adorable seashell bouquet for the bride from etsy and I loved that as an alternative to flowers for myself by I am still trying to figure something cute and more unique out for the bridesmaids!

I bet you are getting excited! Lets hope the induction works! 

 

I did purchase some parasols.  They were relatively cheap. I got them from http://www.weddingfavours.ca/p/3050/Coloured+Paper+Umbrellas.html.  It is a Canadian Site though. I also looked at getting them from http://www.lunabazaar.com/parasols-by-color.aspx which I think is an American site.  My one friend was married a few months ago and she had bouquets made of buttons and they looked really neat!  She made hers herself though, I have looked on etsy but they are pretty expensive.

I've seen the bouquets of buttons and they are really cute. I am not entirely sure that I am crafty enough to make my own, that's my only worry!

 

The parasols are very cute. I also found some mini pinwheels on etsy where she does custom orders and I thought that may be cute, a little "bouquet" of mini pinwheels?

Not sure if that link works...any thoughts on that idea?

 

I've seen people do the paper fans as well which I don't think is a bad idea, but I like the parasols or the pinwheels better.

I like the pin wheels!!! I think its a good idea as long as they are big enough and don't look to small, also it might be annoying if its super windy out the day you get married!

 

I definately am not crafty enough to make my own button bouquet thats why I went with the parasols.  I just think they look lovely in pictures too!

Hi ladies! I'm new to this site and have been skimming over some of your posts...We're getting married in January at GBP and obviously, VERY excited!! I have my date and time booked and Chandlyn said our reception is booked although we have no idea at what restaurant  or any details on that. We're bringing our own photographer down and doing our own (fake) flowers and bringing them down too. We've also asked my fiance's older brother to become ordained and marry us down there - he has been in touch with Chandlyn and all she said was that was fine and that the resort "minister" would "work with him"...not sure what that means...I'm sure it will be great once we get down there and everything will be taken care of but it's driving me nuts not knowing all of the details! lol :) Any tips or advice etc would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance!

I too am using parasols for my bridemaids and a white one for me for pictures. I bought two lime green parasols and one white parasol from a Canadian bride on here. She too was a Jamaican bride and said that the wind wasn't that big of an issue. The parasols are in great condition so it couldn't have been that bad. One decor note, I am grateful to have gotten most of my decor items from other brides on here. The only decor item I didn't get from a bride is my centrepieces that I bought from homesense which is the ontario version of homegoods. 

 

 

I'm planning on making my brooch bouquet myself with my mum. So far I have brooches from my mother, grandmother and aunt. I'm using my aunt's and grandmother's earrings as well as pearls and buttons from my great aunt. I plan on buying some rhinestone buttons, glass beads and pearls from ebay. I'm still in the collecting phase so I'm glad that my wedding is a long time away. Right now i have collected 18 pieces of jewelry plus a small box of white buttons. The best part is that it all came from family so I have lots of something old.

    • 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?
