Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Thanks JayKay!  Futurekeese, I was thinking the same thing, but I would be to scared that anything would go "missing" or never make it there, or get  misplaced. I dont know who you are flying with but my travel agent told me about something called kilo-flex, in which you purchase weight before you leave, so you arent paying through the nose when you get to the airport. You would just have to pre pack all of your stuff and see how much all of it weighs. Hope this helps!

We did our rehersal dinner at the Don Pablo and it was a terrible experience!!!  The service for our large group was sooo slow, it took about 4 hours to finish!  We did The Grill for our welcome dinner and it didn't go too badly.  They had to split the large group up into 3 tables but we were all beside each other and service (and the food) was great!

 

The buffet might be an idea as you can all sit together off to the side, and you can get food whenever you want.

Hey everyone, I was wanting to plan a dinner for all of our guests the first night we are on Jamaica, any suggestions ? I cant decide between Don Pablo, Dolce Vita, or The Grill, or are there any other  options? I know I want to do Mikado with my bridal party the evening before the wedding, so that one is out.

 

Thanks ladies

 I didn't ship anything down, just brought an extra suitcase full of wedding stuff!  I also used friends and family members suitcases that were travelling light.  Most people don't mind if they are under the weight allowance and will toss some of your stuff in their bag.  That way you know it's all coming down with you.  I think it only cost us $20 extra to check another suitcase.

I know they can do up to four weddings a day. I dont think they can do two weddings at a time, as the beach area is to the right o the gazebo and the speaker systems would impede on one another. I couldnt see them doing that. Good question, Im going to email them about that one.

 No they don't do more than one wedding at a time.  Both wedding coordinators are there to help you during your ceremony, so there's no way there could be another wedding going on at the same time.

I wnet there with West Jest. They told me that they don't have a cloth rack in those type of planes. However we were 6 brides on that plane and the flight attendant dedicated one storage shelf just for dresses, so she lined them all together, one on top each other and it was totally fine

    • 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.
