    so, they wont let me talk about how my stay was in this thread, you have to go look at it in the 'reviews' section of the site. This is really annoying. I copy and pasted it and i think they are holding it again, cuz it didn't pop up in the review section after i hit submit. So i give up. I had a great time and i really wanted to tell you all the pros and cons. Maybe tmw my review will be up if anyone is interested in reading it.....good luck to all you future brides- the resort is awesome!

      For those of you who were married already, did any one use the resort flowers?

       

      And if you did, did you just chose them when you got there and let them know that you need BM and GM flowers, or did you let them know in advance?

        Children stay for free? When I asked about rates for children (we will be bringing our then 11 month old son) from my TA she informed me that
        children under 12 stay at Gran Bahia for $191 per child (3 night stay) and $245 per child (4 night stay). Did you confirm this with the resort? Maybe I should contact them directly because the TA isn't aware of this?

        THEN i was told that upon arrival and paying those prices I wasn't guaranteed to have the connecting rooms at all..

         

        UUUGHHH!!

              We are bringing our son who will be just under two and were told by our travel agent he would be free because he is under two.  I was under the understanding that there is a child rate for those 2-12.

                Hi Missy!  Where did you get your flowers?  They look so real!

                 

                Also, I am also thinking about using Jan's florist...did you have to pay anything extra for them to come onsite (i.e pass)?

                Katelynn...It was so great to meet you and I'm sure we have a picture or 10 of you and I together that will surface from someone at some point!  But I definitely didn't see a group as crazy as either of ours the following week we were there either!  haha!  Us northern-ers know how to party it up!  We jumped in the pool with our clothes on (dresses we wore to the rehearsal) the Friday night before the wedding and were told we were being too loud...so we were all pretending to be silent sharks as I whispered the JAWS theme...yeah...we were way weird!  ha!   Gotta love the rum!!

                 

                 

                Okay...down to serious stuff!    I am hoping that I remember everyone's questions...

                 

                 

                I did have my hair done at the spa...I also did a trial 2 days before the wedding...I brought in a picture and they were amazing at creating it on me...they also have a magazine in the salon with a bunch of styles too that you can pick from.  My mom, sister and 2 other bridesmaids had their hair done there as well, and it turned out beautiful on all of them...and they all went off of pictures from the magazine.

                 

                 

                The flowers that we all have are actually fake...we brought them all along with us and I got stopped a few times going through the airport and they told me I couldn't bring them!  haha!    But we did order gazebo arrangements and cake flowers from Jan's...I got everything set up with them as to what I wanted and got a quote...I gave the quote to Chandlyn, paid her, and she took care of the rest - she also gave me a receipt after I paid her the money.

                 

                 

                Our wedding was at 3:00 and the previous wedding was at 1:00...the coordinators stated that they were Jamaican and that was why it took so long (Jamaican time - lol!)  But I think our ceremony didn't start until closer to 3:30 and we were just getting done (after doing some pics, toasts and first dances) at close to 5:15...so they didn't take all that much longer really than ours...But I would think if the coordinators are on top of hustling people out of there, it wouldn't be so tight - especially if there's only an 1.5 hour time frame between weddings.  It doesn't sound like any previous brides ran into this issue...

                 

                 

                We had 2 photographers and one of our GM brough walkie-talkies...those were put to good use (though it was an after-thought when things were looking to be delayed) our GM brought one to the photographer with me and one to the photographer down by the gazebo...we could have used them a little earlier though!  hahaa!
