Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

We tipped our photographer, Merrick Cousley.  We tipped him $50 and gave it to him after our dinner right before he was leaving.  We were so happy with his service so we felt it was a fair tip.

has anyone used the steel drum band for their wedding.

 

We would like them to play as I'm walking down the aisle and right after the ceremony we'll have our first dance song with them playing.

 

I asked the wedding planner about songs they can play and she told me they can play any song and that she would pass on a list of songs i send her to the band...

 

ummm that doesn't seem right... a steel drum band actually able to play ANY song?

Yes it is cheaper They have website where u can send an Email requesting a quote. I wil get the email and post later today if u can't find it

 

Hi,

 

Just thought I would chip in a comment.... I went through this whole thread when we first started planning our wedding, and from everything that was done and our own flowers, I never found there was a great price difference between Tai and Jan's. it seems more a matter of preference and what you're looking for. balanced out, they both seem to work out to be about the same.

Hi girls!

Does anyone know where I can find Rashel contact info for hair & makeup?

 

And any recommendations for videographer over there?

 

We used a Jamaican by the name of Roxroy Gough. he did the video for another past bride on this thread and it was gorgeous! his prices are very reasonable and we really liked him. I can pass on the contact info if you like. I think back in 2011 he charged us about $400 and he was there the whole day

there are quite a few past brides that have used the steel drum band and been very happy with how they played.

 

I don't know if this helps anyone out or not, but we found a site by a man in Florida and he does ALL the traditional wedding music on steel drum and sells it for $6. that's what we did and put it onto a CD and they played it. it was wonderful and exactly what I wanted.  The sound quality is GREAT!!!! and it's a long way from paying $800. I tried to attach a sample here but it won't support uploading an mp3 file. if anyone wants to PM me I can email a sample that way. and like I said, he has all of the standard wedding stuff and in steel band, it sounds beautiful!!

That would have been awesome to have that for your guests.

I just noticed we are getting married the same week!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
