      So excited.  I just heard back from Chandlyn (and it only took 2 days), she has booked and confirmed the date we chose.  I'm getting married on Feb. 6, 2013....yay 

      Now to get my STD ready to go out after the holidays, so everyone has a heads-up.  Think I'll end up with a lot of DIY projects because it seems to be so much cheaper and then I know it'll be what I want.   Besides I have lots of time to keep myself occupied waiting for the big day to arrive.

        Hello Ladies

         

        So I'm back I was there for two weeks and got married on Nov 22. It was amazing and so beautiful so not great on reviews so here goes.

         

        Resort- It is like castle it's so beautiful for pics and there were 31 of us as some guests surprised me. Everyone of my guests loved the resort and the beach. The atmosphere was amazing the resort is so clean and so were our rooms. I was in room 17418 and loved it I could see the pool and the ocean the rooms 3 and up are the best for views. I like where we were because we were close to the pool and the other side was the ocean and nice beach. The pool entertainment was awesome and funny I entered a beer drinking contest and lost LOL. The service was excellent and money can buy anything. They only have powdered milk for the coffee in the room and we were able to buy milk from the staff. we also bought ginger ale and coffee for 15 bucks a bag and 10 dolars for a bottle of rum. Like i said money buys everything. my maid Mauvene was amazing she was so sweet.

         

        Food- The food was great and I have some picky eaters and they loved it. There also is a smaller buffet too called th Palmyra and it's alot quieter then the main buffet. The a la cartes were delish I liked all of them and book your reservations as soon as possible or you'll end up eating at like 9 at night if you don't. Also sometimes you can pay the hostess 10 bucks and they sometimes will squeeze you in .  There gril lis great I had surf and turf very good they also have a ghood buffet there to for yuor appetizers. The japanese show was great and the food was so tasty make sure you go. The Don Pablo is good too very fancy and whenyou order your soup they come out with a bowl with a tiny potatoe and no soup and your like what the heck some people ate it and then they come out shortly after and pour the soup of your potatoe it was so funny everyone was like what is going on, and the waiter's love the reaction while you look stunned too. The dolce vita was pretty good Iliked it. My dinner for my reception was there and I had the squash and thyme soup mmmmm, the raviloi was great and the chicken and tirmaisu it was all good.

         

        wedding- Donnalee is sweet and very helpful at my reception and so is Chandyl. they decorated it perfectly and brought the chair sashes as well. My ceremony was perfect it was liek a dream come true they were a few tiny hiccups but no big deal to me. The minister writes yur names down on his hand and he forgot my sea shell poem but i reminded him and it was all good. I also wanted my flowers tinted blue and that didn't happen either but they were very pretty white orchids and white roses. i really have no complaints to be honest it was amazing. The photographer at the resort Chris with braids was actually very good but I had alrady hired an outside photographer. I will post one of the resorts pics and yu can see for your self. I am not sure about the other resort photographer's but Chris was very good.

         

         

        All in all ladies you cannot go wrong with this resort I had an amazing time and was there for two weeks. I definately recommend the catamaran boat cruise to dunns river falls, snorkeling and the private beach it was spectacular and so fun.

              Hey Fleetmac!  Thanks so much for all the info.  When you say rooms 3 have the best view, do you mean floors #3 and up?

                    Does anyone have pictures of the chairs without the chair covers? I've seen a few pictures where the white covers appears dated and wrinkled. Also, I was thinking of bringing my own table covers (not a fan of the white ones the resort uses). Has anyone brought their own down? Sorry if sound a bit meticulous......I just want the deco to look tasteful lol. Secondly, I've noticed that the Bahia Principe website does not charge for children 2-12, but Expedia does. Does anyone have any info on rates for children under 12?
