      I think picking the resort was the hardest and most stressful part of the planning so far.

        Take your time picking your resort because it really is the biggest decision.  If you can find a resort in your price range that has good wedding services it will save you a ton of stress.  Some resorts just seem to be better dealing with weddings than others, making it feel personal, special and unique, while others are like wedding factories and pump out multiple weddings daily. 

         

        What is it you like about the Gran Bahia principe?  Maybe if you list your needs/wants we can help and be your sounding board!

          Price was a major element in my decision.  Look into Grand Palladium Jamaica and compare it to Gran Bahia, just remember this is YOUR day.  Even though you want everyone to come and be able to keep the cost down for them, YOU have to be happy on where you have it.  Good luck!

            Such great advice ladies! A big factor when I was considering was that I didn't want to be one of six brides that day! So I avoided all the big resorts and searched all the smaller options and they all ended up being more affordable as well!

              If that's a consideration, take a look at the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach or Suites.  They're fairly large, but only do one wedding a day.

              For us picking the resort was definetly the hardest decision we had to make.  We first made a list of about 5 resorts we were considering and noted things about each resort, such as wedding packages (some offer free ones), distance to airport, size of resort, average price and many other things.  We then used that list to decide upon a resort.  Good luck making your decision!

                I think it's normal for all of us to second-guess which resort, wedding package, heck...even which country we picked! It is such an important day to all of us!

                  Thank Yo so much Ladies for ally our help. I researched more on thei resort from tripadvisor to the forums especially Kerrij who had nice pictures of everything. I picked the Gran Bahia because of price, location and their packages were great. Thanks for your help
