          I have heard wonderful things from the girls on here who married there and also from family/friends who have travelled there. I too will be a Bahia Principe Bride on April 13th, 2011!!! So far I have found the WC amazing! very accommodating!

            Hi guys I'm getting married there this saturday...The resort itself is huge...
            My package is 1650 for 30 guests dinner and ceremony. I will be doing a private reception which is an additional 650. I also will be doing signature drinks at 5.50 pp. I will have to use resort photographers because they charge 500$ if you wanna use an off resort one. It's beautiful there and the WC is very much on top of things and always answers my emails quickly!!. Ill post a review when I come back. I have in attendance 34 people...so we shall see : )

                Gran Bahia is excellent and quite a large resort. My sister was married there.
                Everything was taken care of by wedding planner except for photographer.
                They kept pushing to use their photographers but my sister did not like style.
                Plain and basis she desired more and contacted Frank Panaro.
                www.frankpanarophotography.com

                He did a great job and my sister was in love once again with her photos.
                Frank did an awesome job. Price was $3000.00 US Dollars.
                You will enjoy Gran Bahia vey much and is a great choice, but look for outside photographer.

                Cheers.

                  Hi nikki,
                  Could you tell me how did your sister to have another photographer than the hotel proposed "Arrecife"... I have understood that now they have a very high cost to have an external photographer..

                      Hi guys i want to leave you with a review. I got married there on June 19th it was amazing. Everything went without a hitch. It rained so we xchanged the gazebo for the indoor setting without fail. Here goes:

                      I used the photographer on the resort because they charge 500$ to use an outside photgrapher. I initially wanted Michael Weiler.
                      I was afraid it wouldnt work out but it ended up being better! They are very condusive to what you want and your budget.
                      you can FB them Arrecife Bahia is their FB page. They are extremely friendly and accomodating. Their packages ranged from 699 and up which is good for the quality of photos. We didnt want printed ones so they gave us a dvd slideshow and the cd .

                      Word of advice...
                      dont do the unforgettable.. its not worth it.. we downgraded to Blissful Love which is just as good.
                      The signature cocktail hour is excellent and they add extra liquor in the drink if you want.
                      They give you dinner reservations with your whole group throughout your stay together if you give them a list in advance of the guests! The spa discounts does not include hair and nails.

                      We checked in, got a letter from the WC at a time to meet.
                      She reviewed the contract and pulled out two books.
                      1. with flowers a HUGE selection of bouquets
                      2.Cake book huge selection of cakes
                      3. Extras in the second book too like candles ribbons etc..

                      The cake was amazing i had vanilla coconut..
                      When you get there they will reconfirm and tell you of extra things they have if your interested but they dont push. Dont do open bar unless you are adamant about it. there is an hour usually of open time after ceremony guests went to lobby and drank. They include wine, beer and with the cocktail hour you can modify it for a time during dinner or dance portion. We took an ipod worked amazing.
                      If you pick canapes service, when you get there the WC will be honest and say.. you wont like this so switch it with this.. it doesnt taste good. so dont worry over selections. We ordered personalized shot glasses as favors at discount mugs.com & our fan program we got for 20$ at the knot .com. They decorate everything beautifully for you so dont encumber yourself taking centerpieces etc.

                      i dont know how to put some photos on here ...but they were amazing
