Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Hi Celeste. I know with the free wedding package, you have to pay $25 a person after you reach 16 people, The other packages its a bit more, like $35 a person once you reach 20 people. It goes up a little bit , the more expensive your wedding package is.

I haven't been on this website forever and I just got back into the wedding planning after a big move and I realized I made a HUGE oops! When I was looking over the brochure I had from Beverly I saw that all of the packages required a seven night stay and I purposely had mine shortened to 5 so that I wouldnt be on my honeymoon with my entire extended family! I even had to pay extra to do that because of how the package deals work! I AM FREAKING OUT! I sent an email to my TA about options, but I dont know what we will be able to do since we've already booked and deposited. Has anybody else had a wedding on a shorter stay?!?

 

If she comes up with nothing I have no idea what we will do! I guess I will just wait until a LOT a LOT of people have booked for my wedding and be like "See? I brought you a bunch of business!" But I dont see that going well!

 

I am also extremely worried about the sheer size of my group! At first we were worried only like 10 people would come, but Ive already have 11+ people invite themselves! I would not be surprised in the least if my group is 100- 150 people! EEP! has anybody else had a big wedding at GBP or know about the costs for larger parties? Fingers crossed its just early madness, but we both have giant families.

I'm going to walk down the Aisle to Kissing You by Des'ree (its from the romeo and juliet soundtrack and I LOVE it)

I still need to pick out a song for us to walk down married to though, still undecided!

Im going to walk down the aisle to it. I'm not really a traditional bride, my ceremony isnt going to be traditional at all. And the song is perfect for us.

I chose it for the lyrics" I really need a wife at home"...."I need a girl to make my wife" and "You the girl I been lookin for my whole life.
God bless me, I'm glad I got the insight, It's cuz of you girl, now I understand life"

 I cant wait to see peoples reaction when it plays. I think its going to be sweet and hilarious at the same time.


What about you?
 

What songs have you ladies chosen for walking down the aisle and all that good stuff?

I basically gave up on Jan's flowers. They sent me a quote about 3 weeks after I requested it. then I asked to see photos of bridal bouquet options and they sent me one photo of a bouquet I didn't like. I don't have the time to chase them down for info so I'm just going to use the resort flower supplier and deal with Beverly when I get there. We leave in less than 2 weeks!! So excited!

Brad Paisley - He didn't have to be ... Heres the lyrics (sorry its such a long post, haha,  I googled the lyrics)

 

"When a single mom goes out on a date with somebody new
It always winds up feeling more like a job interview
My momma used to wonder if she'd ever meet someone
Who wouldn't find out about me and then turn around and run

I met the man I call my dad when I was five years old
He took my mom out to a movie and for once I got to go
A few months later I remember lying there in bed
I overheard him pop the question and prayed that she'd say yes

And then all of a sudden
Oh, it seemed so strange to me
How we went from something's missing
To a family
Lookin' back all I can say
About all the things he did for me
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be

I met the girl that's now my wife about three years ago
We had the perfect marriage but we wanted somethin' more
Now here I stand surrounded by our family and friends
Crowded 'round the nursery window as they bring the baby in

And now all of a sudden
It seemed so strange to me
How we've gone from something's missing
To a family
Lookin' through the glass I think about the man
That's standin' next to me
And I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be

Lookin' back all I can say
About all the things he did for me
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be

Yeah, I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be
Because he didn't have to be
You know he didn't have to be "

I'm going to walk down the aisle to the steel drum band (haven't selected the song yet). I don't want anything sappy as I will have a hard enough time holding it together. My Dad passed away a couple years ago, and so my Mom will be walking me down the ailse. I've decided to attach a charm with a photo of my Dad and the inscription "always in my heart" to my bouquet. And just writing this has me tearing up so definitely no sappy music lol. I want something upbeat but still romantic.

Yeah that made me tear up, that is such a cute idea having his picture in the bouquet.  I'm seriously lucky to have both my parents, so I'm getting them both to walk me down the aisle.  I will be crying I know it, but thats why I invested in waterproof mascara, eye liner and a waterproof spray to keep the make-up on, hahaha.

What about one of these songs:

 

Chrisette Michelle - My Joy

Tim McGraw - my little girl

Faith Hill - butterfly kisses

Rascal Flatts - my wish * love this song - FI and MIL are dancing to this song

Heartland - I loved her first

Edwin McCain - Walk with you

Brad Paisley- All because two people fell in love

Phil Vassar - She's on her way

 

I am going to dance with my dad to My Daughter" by Loudin Wainwright III ....it fits our relationship perfectly. I am still undecided on back down the isle, I wanted One love but I think we might go with Jason Mraz Im yours.

FI and I are renting the steel drum band as well which makes things kind of tricky for song choices! I asked Beverly for a list of songs they play or a sample and she never got back to me... well wait, she said that another couple had the CD. ??? Either way... any of you ladies using the steel drum bands and have an idea about song choices? I'd like to have SOME idea of the choices I have.

    • 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
