Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts


I've never seen it advertised as one wedding a day, I think its a common misconception .... Beverly told me they usually do 2 weddings a day.

I can't find the sand frame on the umbra website.  Which Chapters did you see it at?

Do you use this frame at the actual ceremony or do you put this together at a later date?

Thanks

Yup, my flowers were included...

You can buy the bottles of alcohol and mixes, but she never gave me pricing, told me we would go over it once we got there....by that time I just figured screw it, we were saving enough money having a destination wedding and I really didnt want to have to worry about buying enough bottles, and mixing, etc. .... The good thing about Beverly is that you literally dont make any final decisions until you are there. I sent her in everything before hand and we literally sat down 2 days before the wedding and she asked me everything again and filled out her own forms. So dont feel like you have to make a decision now. Wait til you get there and check things out....

Are you in Canada?  I haven't seen the ether frame on the Umbra site in months, but I got mine at Urbane.com - it's a Canadian only site - not sure where you are, but if in Canada they still have them...

I glued mine at home (made a mess, by the way! I'm not so good at DIY) and we are pouring the sand during our ceremony

I've seen them at Party Packagers. They have a whole section of hawaiian themed party supplies, including palm trees, coconut drinking cups, candles etc...I'm thinking of the same thing for a home reception! Dollarama also has big baskets of shells, for $2!

thanks for all the feedback, lots to consider and look into..... just confirmed my date this week for October 25 2011!! we're having it at 1pm, so i'm pretty excited, but pretty stressed too! i've read so many of you saying not to stress don't worry it all gets worked out when you get there, but oh i'm still stressing.  i feel like i have sooooo many questions to ask, but i can't get it together to think of what they actually are... i am also lookiong into merrick cousley for our photographer and his work looks so amazing and i was totally shocked at his prices!! they are so reasonable! anyways keep the info coming ladies and maybe i'll figure out the answers to the questions i can't think of by reading this!!!!

Hey Kerlitz,
I finally got a quote from Jan's Flowers and will be making that deposit today but have already made a deposit for Merrick Cousley. I thought it would be simple to show up at the bank with the account numbers he gave me and just wire the money but there's a pile of other information (inclding his personal address) and well as paperwork to make it go through at the bank so I ended up using PayPal and saving money compared to the bank fees!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
