Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?


Recommended Posts

I did a fingerprint tree and I got mine off Etsy.  I used this seller :  http://www.etsy.com/shop/ForKeepsDesigns

 

She was so great to work with and customized our tree for us.  Most are made for weddings of over 50 people but seeing as we were only having less then 20 we didnt want a big huge empty tree. 

 

Here is what our finished one looks like

 Thanks Ann!  We had an amazing time!   I did get your text the one time I turned on my phone and really appreciated the sweet message you sent through, so thank you!  Didn't know if I'd see you on here again but wanted to thank you again for the brochures and steel drum music, VERY appreciated!

 

Eight months already?!  Time flies doesn't it!?  The hubby and I would love to go back to the GBP next year as we loved it so much!

We're almost 8 months married now and are going back to the resort in October for our first anniversary. I can't wait. I still look back on our pics and love them. Our photographer did a wonderful job. All the reviews about Stacey on this site were great so I'm sure your photos will be fabulous!

The OOT bags you just pick stuff up along the way... if you look at the main threads to this forum there are amazing ideas on things to put in them, places to buy and people selling off older stuff as well.  Once you know how many people are coming to your wedding you can start gathering everything and putting them all together. 

 

A friend of ours made our fingerprint tree.. I have the finished copy at home with the fingerprints and signatures but here's what ours looked like bare.  I love it and can't wait to hang it in our house!

We got our guests Bubba Kegs and then had a friend engrave everyone's names on them.  Everyone loved them as the cups they serve the drinks in are so tiny and these keep your drinks nice and cold.  So if you can work it into your budget, I'm sure everyone would love them!

Will we need music on a cd if we are having the steel drum band play? We aren't doing a private dinner so can we bring stuff to put on the tables? What do you brides recommend for a guest book? Any recommended websites? My wedding isn't until June 22, 2013 so I have a little over a year, but I just want to be prepared! Any suggestions or websites on what to do for out of town bags? Or should I skip out of town bags? I found someone on etsy who would make custom mugs for the pool for all my guests for around $150. Thanks ladies!

Hi Kristo,

 

The Bubba Kegs appear to be a great idea. Did you buy the bubba kegs in bulk?  Where did you find them, and how much did it cost you?

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
