Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

hey there,

 

Has anyone NOT used the chair covers and sashes you have to pay for? Some resorts have nice white chairs you can use for the ceremony and I was planning on just brining my own decorations for the chairs to add some colour. 

 

It's looking like the only chair options at the GBP are the ugly banquet chairs that will definitely need to be covered!

The ugly banquest chairs are the only ones that they have, thus you basically have to use the chair covers. I know that there were some weddings however that did not use the sashes and just had the white chair covers. I would try and negotiate for this if you wanted to use your own decorations at a lower cost although they do a very good job with the what they have. Keep in mind though that if you want any of your decorations back to put someone in charge of collecting them after the ceremony. We were never offered any of our decorations back or were able to use them at the reception. It wasn't a big deal for us but I know for others having an at home reception they were very upset about not being able to reuse them.

I was reading Sbelland's note, and i was just wondering about the music a little bit more. I think I know the answer, but we have hired the DJ, so this should mean that he'll have speakers for the music, correct? I would imagine so...but I might as well check.

 

By the way, sbelland, they didn't move your chair sashes over to the reception? I have heard they have...I wonder why they wouldn't. I am definitely putting some one in charge of getting my decorations back! Its not much, I only have chair sashes anyway.

I am also wondering about the DJ ... we are planning on buying a Bose ipod docking station to play our music just in case something happens. What all will the DJ do besides play music. Does he or she have a microphone to hype everyone up or if someone wants to talk? I don't really want to bring cds if I don't have to. I am hoping they have an ipod hookup and speakers. Thanks ladies!

Can anyone recommend a certain "block" or building to stay in, I have heard the 23 is the newest, but it is also the farthest from everything.  Also, I have been trying to get personolized "do not disturb" door hangers from vista print,but i cant find then anywhere on their website. Anyone ever find them before?

 

I just came home from our big family  Christmas dinner tonight, and everyone is counting down the days, and is soo excited, 2 weeks before we leave!!!!! OMG!!! I feel like there is too much to do before we leave. I know everyone says not to worry about anything before you go, but t feels like there is still alot to do!! Ahhhhh!!!!!

 

Hope all of you ladies had an amazing Christmas! and will have a fantastic new years!!! :)rockon.gif

-did anyone bring their own music to be played at the ceremony and dinner?  

-Does the DJ just play music or will he introduce the first dance, bridal party etc/...?

 

 

Thanks so much, any feedback would be appreciated!!!

We have rented out the pisces privately for our reception. I have heard that there can be alot of bugs there, but we are going to have a basket there for guests with mosquito spray and wipes just in case. When you book the picses that includes the dj for two hours, in the $1700 rental fee. We plan on bringing our own music for dinner and the reception on an ipod and a back up cd just in case.  Im not sure if the dj will introduce etc, I dont see why not. We have asked one of my unlces to MC, hopefully he agrees(hes a little nervous, lol, but we told him he only has to introduce us when we come in and our first dance pretty well). I also asked Chandlynn if they have a venue set up if it rains, and she said yes, there is a seperate venue booked our just in case.

 

It looka like a beautiful venue, I cant wait!!! 13 days till we leave!!

    • 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?
