      Hey Bahia brides, for those of you who got the steel drum band to play at your ceremony, did they play when you and your bridal party walked down the aisle or just before/after the ceremony? I've been trying to get a playlist from the resort as we'd love to walk down the aisle to steel drums, but I really don't want the traditional "here comes the bride".

        I just got married there on the 26th of February, so if you would like to see some pictures of the resort I can show you some. Just and FYI the resort photographers pictures are not so good. They took 147 pictures and it was hard for us to find 10 good ones, the color was all wrong, Thank god we hired Brian Nejedly, he was amazing. I would highly recommend him if you are planning on having a photographer.

         

        Chandlyn is the wedding cordinator you will work with, she is very nice and good. The meeting with her will be less than a half hour the day after you get there, but that is all you need. You pick your cake flavors, you get 3/4 wedding bouquets to choose from also. The tables clothes are white for dinner, the chair covers are no charge but the chair ties cost you money as that is a different vendor. Plus you have to pay cash for those no credit cards excepted. We ate at the Italian restaurant and we picked the Chicken with spinach and cheese I think, well anyways it was very good.

         

        The water is ok to drink at the resort, and the alcohol drinks are strong! If not just ask them to put more in and they will. Also if you plan on having your nails done, be for warned that it will take a good 4 hours to dry unless you go back and sit in your air conditioned room for an hour. They will smudge easy.

         

        Everyone there is very nice so you should have no problems. Hope all this helps!
