Gran Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado Brides?

Recommended Posts

Well, at the very least I can give you some information after my wedding in May!  I'm hoping to find out some more answers from the wedding coordinator, but I find that calling her is really expensive because I'm often on hold a lot, and there is also the language barrier.  Specifically, I want to know whether we can choose our own ceremony, and also where and at what time the wedding will be!  It would also be nice to know where the reception will be...

 

Anyway, I'm trying to just go with the flow and realize that everything will all work out once we get there!

I think that you can chose where you have ceremony and change the small details, it depends how different you want it to be.

Have you seen the pictures that have been posted on another thread on here? They show flowers,cakes,locations etc. I am not sure how up to date or acurate they are!

Yes, I've seen the pictures.  It would be nice if they could just send us the options via email so we'd know what we want to choose when we arrive!

 

As for the ceremony, it's not that I don't want their ceremony- it's just that I've never seen it, and I don't know what would happen if I didn't like it when we got there and the wedding is only a few days away.  I'll bring a sample of my ceremony ideas so that I can work on it there I guess.  We also have a guest that I would like to have read a large part of the ceremony, so I wonder if that will be possible!

I haven't heard anything about receptions there... does anyone have any information? We are very interested in getting married there...

I was also wondering if someone had the email address for the wedding coordinator. We want some information before we book, and I cannot seem to find it on the website... Or rather, I cannot seem to get it to work (weird link on my laptop). 

I am wondering about the ceremony... can there be a religious one? I know the judge is included, but can the ceremony include religious elements? This is really a deal-breaker for someone in my family... Does anyone know?

The email address that she used to confirm our wedding date was:  coordinadorgruposbpcle@bahiaprincipe.com.

 

I have emailed her a few times though with questions and have never received a response.

Peach- Are you UK based? The reason I ask is that we are going through Thomson/First Choice and initially we were told that the judges fees were included, however when we went to book and finalise they said they weren't and we would have to pay for these on top. Just thought I would warn you.

 

On the Gran Bahia website the package says they are included as well, however Thomson make you pay for them seperately which is typical of Thomson and a bit of a con. We rang and emailed the hotel to try and book it direct through them and got no answer and therefore we had no choice but to book through them.

 

As for the religious part, I'm not sure but we were never given an option, they only told us about the civil ceremony. Also, it depends on what type of religious ceremony you are after as I would have thought if they offered anything religious it would be in line with Dominican's religious beliefs.

Okay, thanks for the help so far!

I am not UK based.... I am in Canada. But that is VERY good to know; I will definitely be looking into it!

As for the religious aspect, I am pretty sure that you are right, and it would be in line with Catholicism (most of the Dominican beliefs). Maybe a compromise will be to ask a guest to read a verse or say a prayer or something... Hmm...

Thank you for the email! I am going to try to get some information from her now...

I had to call to book my date... I had tried emailing many times and received no response.  So I just called the main line for the hotel and asked for the wedding coordinator, Angela Santiago.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
