Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Perfect!


I was planning on using CDS because that way I dont have to worry about my Ipod going missing or messing something on it up.  I will use your suggestion and put them all on one CD with the tracks clearly listed what they are for!  Thanks!

definitely put all your music on 1 cd! then just make a list of each track on the CD with what it's for like: track 1 - guests being seated, track 2 guests being seated, track 3 bride processional, track 6 signing the register..... etc.  like that but list each track. we had music for doing our sand ceremony, signing the register and our first dance since we did it right at the gazebo and it all worked out great. we didn't get every song only because it all went so fast we ended up with too much music! but otherwise, these guys do this every day sometimes several times in one day. we found they were great.  we got told that a cd is ten times easier for them than an IPOD just because of the connections and stuff and the sound was great. I heard it all the way down at the beginning of that loooooong pathway to do my walk so volume is definitely NOT a problem!!  doug actually had an extra list in his pocket just in case something happened to the first one, but we just put it inside the cover of the CD so it was all right there!

I had never heard of Cranbrook before we got there even from reading all of the posts here. wish I had so that we would have known because it's an awesome place!!  it's not that I didn't get to pick my specifics - I just didn't think about it and I guess I should have. I though I was clear enough in the beginning and I also thought that we would automatically have pictures right at the gazebo. we only did our sunset ones there and they didn't come out as well as we had hoped.

@ Acw,

 

Cranbrook Park was mentioned in this post awhile back... the bride raved about it and also said the entrance fee is 10 per person. She stated that her taxi driver Micheal from Spencer's Tour recommended it  over Mahoe Falls or Coyoba Park. So I made a note of it. Lol

It really is a great spot for pics.

ha ha that was me! if you check you'll see. we got married on oct 20th. if you want Michael Spencer's contact info I can give it to you. he is an absolutel gem of a man and really takes care of every one that he takes around! the funny part was he was originally recommended by someone my husband works with that got married at GBP back in may this year, and they used him and absolutely loved him, and they had a group of about 30 people! The reason Michael recommended Cranbrook was because of how close it is to the resort compared to Blue Mahoe Falls. His taxi bus would take a full bridal party, parents and a few guests quite easily and his rates are very very reasonable.

ACW, would you mind sharing Michael's contact info with us?  We're looking for someone to drive us around for our trash the dress day!  Did you plan things with him in advance or just call him once you arrived?  I'd ideally like to set something up so we have a vehicle large enough for us and our two photogs and drive out to Dunn's River Falls, then make a few stops on the way back...

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
