Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies,

 

Just wondering if any of you have thought about a neat kissing game to play. I thought it would be neat to include something about Jamaica but dont really have any ideas.

I just sent an email yesterday to get a quote from Lee's Tours that you booked through.  OMG...how did you get such an awesome rate?!  I just got a quote from them stating that they would honor a special wedding group rate of $17/pp for people 10yrs and older...with 25 adults, that's almost $500!  I know we have a larger group than you...but holy man!  What did they offer you as pricing if you don't mind me asking!?

Hey ladies,

 

I need some advice.  We have booked our wedding for Jan. 10, 2012 at 4pm.  We were looking online the other day and it shows that the sun will set at around 545pm.  I'm nervous that there will not be enough time for many pictures.  What do you think? Will it be enough time or should be move our ceremony time back to around 3pm?? Thanks!

Well it might be because we have 15 people and the bus holds 15 maybe?  But we were quoted $12 pp for the day, and me and my FI have to pay for for peoples entrance into Dunn Falls.  I had to put down a 25% deposit, went through my credit card yesterday of about $40.    Maybe its more because there has to be a few buses because its so large?  Weird!

There ceremony is only about 20 minutes, so if you do pics before cake cutting and everything that gives you over an hour.  Depends on how many pictures you want taken.

I was worried about the same thing. I am bringing all of my own wording and readings for the ceremony. Im not going by the normal script that the hotel provides at all. Its still going to be a short ceremony though. My wedding time is 3pm, I really didnt want to get married early in the day and to be in a rush in the morning to get ready. Plus we are doing a photoshoot with the photographer at about noon that day, wearing casual clothes before we get ready for the ceremony. Having the ceremony at 3,  I think will give me enough time to get some nice pictures with the sun out after the ceremony is over, and then maybe a few with the sun going down, those pictures turn out nice too!

JayKay & Lmarie - We are getting married at 6:00pm (sunset) so we are doing our pics beforehand. First I was apprehensive about the idea, but after doing some thinking I'm pretty excited about it. We get to have our "first look" with just FI, myself and the photographer. If you look up First Look photos they are just incrediable! So full of emotion. That way we're not going to be rushed either... we're going to do family shoots right after the ceremony, but everything else before. This way we get to enjoy cocktail hour with our guests as well :)

 

Just a thought :)

tris-what a great idea, however, I really didn't want to see him until I walked down that aisle:)  I think we are going to try to move our ceremony up an hour, then that way we have lots of time for pictures.  I would rather have to much time then not enough!

That is SO CUTE!  I LOVE IT!   But I'm old fashioned, I can't let FI see me from midnight the night before until the walk down the aisle... but super cute idea and I LOVED the ones I came up with when I googled it.  So genuine.

Ya, at first I pouted for a bit and was like "But I don't want to see you until we get married!" but the idea has since grown on me. We'll get to cuddle and snuggle as much as we want before. (AND hopefully I won't cry AS MUCH at the wedding... lies, I will, haha)

    • 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.
