Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

I did a fingerprint tree and I got mine off Etsy.  I used this seller :  http://www.etsy.com/shop/ForKeepsDesigns

 

She was so great to work with and customized our tree for us.  Most are made for weddings of over 50 people but seeing as we were only having less then 20 we didnt want a big huge empty tree. 

 

Here is what our finished one looks like

 Thanks Ann!  We had an amazing time!   I did get your text the one time I turned on my phone and really appreciated the sweet message you sent through, so thank you!  Didn't know if I'd see you on here again but wanted to thank you again for the brochures and steel drum music, VERY appreciated!

 

Eight months already?!  Time flies doesn't it!?  The hubby and I would love to go back to the GBP next year as we loved it so much!

We're almost 8 months married now and are going back to the resort in October for our first anniversary. I can't wait. I still look back on our pics and love them. Our photographer did a wonderful job. All the reviews about Stacey on this site were great so I'm sure your photos will be fabulous!

The OOT bags you just pick stuff up along the way... if you look at the main threads to this forum there are amazing ideas on things to put in them, places to buy and people selling off older stuff as well.  Once you know how many people are coming to your wedding you can start gathering everything and putting them all together. 

 

A friend of ours made our fingerprint tree.. I have the finished copy at home with the fingerprints and signatures but here's what ours looked like bare.  I love it and can't wait to hang it in our house!

We got our guests Bubba Kegs and then had a friend engrave everyone's names on them.  Everyone loved them as the cups they serve the drinks in are so tiny and these keep your drinks nice and cold.  So if you can work it into your budget, I'm sure everyone would love them!

Will we need music on a cd if we are having the steel drum band play? We aren't doing a private dinner so can we bring stuff to put on the tables? What do you brides recommend for a guest book? Any recommended websites? My wedding isn't until June 22, 2013 so I have a little over a year, but I just want to be prepared! Any suggestions or websites on what to do for out of town bags? Or should I skip out of town bags? I found someone on etsy who would make custom mugs for the pool for all my guests for around $150. Thanks ladies!

Hi Kristo,

 

The Bubba Kegs appear to be a great idea. Did you buy the bubba kegs in bulk?  Where did you find them, and how much did it cost you?

    • 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?
