Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Its perfect!

I hope someone can answer this question for me. Im bringing a photographer with me from home, and he was wondering if he will need a working Visa to take pictures there, apparently they do in Mexico.

I wouldn't think they would need a working visa unless they will be doing photographs from a resident of Jamaica.  If they are only coming to do your pictures then Im pretty sure you dont need one as they will be accepting payment from you only and not technically making an income from Jamaican people.

Thanks JayKay - it seems really no resort is perfect... it's tough to decide which can meet most of your wishes! thanks, Sarah

Hi FutureKeese22,

I received a PDF file from Chandlyn for the flowers via Tai Flora which I have been looking through ( I can send you a copy if you would like..just PM me your email address).  Also after 2 weeks of sending an email to Tia Flora...I have heard nothing.  I do plan to check out Jan's flowers and see what they are offering.  OMG..congrats on finding and purchasing your wedding dress...!!  I'm still looking and hope to narrow down my search by late June.  The tulle I will be bringing myself as I'm sure it will be cheaper, and I'm going to Micheal's this weekend to see what I could find in terms of silk flowers.

FutureKeese22, LOVE that dress! It's gorgeous!! I can't wait to go shopping with my mum and maid of honor and try stuff on . . . I think I have my heart set on one already, but that won't stop me from trying a bazillion of them on anyway just to make sure!!

Hi Natalie-congrats on your recent nuptials!! Great photos! I am considering this hotel for July 2013. Do you know what the beach ceremony site is like? Also I am reading mixed reviews on the beach in general-is it decent?? We'd also like to have dinner after the ceremony on the beach - do you know if that is a possibility at GBP? Thanks so much, Sarah!

 

Hi Sarah...I didn't see any beach ceremonies while I was there...The gazebo was the popular choice...it was beautiful! Not sure about reception dinner on the beach...it wasn't a choice for us...however we did have a romantic dinner for 2 on the beach...which was awesome:) And I thought the beach was amazing...you just have to walk a bit more to the left...I loved every part of my wedding and am so happy I chose this resort!!

One thing that has really bothered me lately is the rise in vendor fee for photographers to $800 if we're not using Digipix. I mentioned this to my travel agent the other day and she was very surprised and said she was going to mention it to the tour operators as she thought they may not be impressed by such a restrictive policy. I read on another thread that Misha Earle covered the vendor fee and day passes required in her fee - but the vendor fee for the hotel being mentioned was $100, not $800, so I'm not sure she'd be quite as eager to do that for GBPJ brides. I know this change is fairly recent, but I'll be interested to see how this pans out - whether more brides will start using Digipix or whether people will book elsewhere. I know for me, photos are HUGE and I want a photographer that is more photojournalistic than pose-y.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
