        I agree with the other ladies...Destination Weddings don't need to be traditional and I am not planning on a rehearsal dinner. Perhaps a scheduled meet up at the buffett or a bar, but nothing big!

          We had a "rehearsal dinner" of sorts - we didn't actually have a rehearsal, but I wanted our whole group to have 1 meal together besides the wedding, so we arranged for everyone to have dinner at the Grill the night before the wedding.  We had a group of 54, and I just emailed Public Relations 2 weeks before the wedding and requested it and they said no problem.  No one mentioned a fee, and we didn't have to pay anything for it.  They set us up at 3 large table, and they even gave us all champagne to celebrate with....

           

          Their email is prexecutivebpjam@bahia-principe.com and I was dealing with Andrea.  I originally tried booking it a few months prior, but they told me they can't confirm anything unless it is within 2 weeks.

            Thank you, I am emailing now. I keep getting conflicting information. We have a party of 30 and just wanted a couple tables together for a rehearsal dinner.. Nothing fancy. I just wanted a meal together like you. I was told that a party that size couldn't be accommodating because some of the restaurants are closed and we already have the staff at one restaurant for our reception after the wedding so to have two large parties in one week wouldnt be doable unless we rented the space for $2500... But that doesnt make sense because id they book lots of weddings wouldnt they have lots of receptions too already??

              Hi Cupcake,

               

              I guess it could be an issue if your wedding is during "off season" like in the summer months because they might decrease their staff when the resort isn't as busy?  I got married in April, so they were fully staffed and everything was opened....  And there was 1 wedding in the Grill during our dinner, but there were only 15 of them, so maybe that's why they could fit us in....  But I would definitely ask!

              thanks for stepping in!!  I knew I remembered someone had done a "rehearsal dinner" and had emailed the main Bahia people. I should have remembered it was you because you had such a large group and I think you're so lucky that many people cared enough about you guys to make the trip!!

                Thanks so much guys. Yea I was thinking because of the off season (our wedding is September 10th) it would be a little more difficult. Since there is only 30 of us I will try again closer to the wedding and just try to get some tables together for all of us to eat together.
