Need Information about Gran Bahia jamaica please!!!!

Recommended Posts

I was hoping to get some information from other gran bahia brides. I went too book my trip and wedding and my travel agent said for me to buy the sunhine package I have to have 10 people in my group book with me. Most of my family is booking later or last minute since they don't have a lot of money. Can me and my fiance book us two and still buy the sunshine package with out having any one book with us? I left the office last night almost in tears because I don't want to make my family pay more then they have too PLEASE HELP ME

 

I honestly thought DTW were easier and my agent seems to be not listening to me

When we booked we had to pay $2000 to hold 10 spots as you each have to pay a $200 deposit to hold your spot and then pay the rest 60 days before departure. If you and your FI have $2000 throw it down so it reserves your group (thats what we did until people started boking so we had our date reserved)

 

 

It all depends also on how many people you are having and what you really want from your package. I was going to go with the Sunshine and then realized that the free package was better for us, as I found you were paying for little things I didnt want like a fruit basket in room. The free package includes things like your boquet, grooms bout, decoration of the site, and dinner for 16 people. The only thing you have to pay for is the minister fee's which is $400 cash, and then its $25 a person for dinner after 16, while I think the sunshine was like $35. With this extra money we paid for all our flowers and the gazebo rental at night.

 

Hope this helps!! There is also a very active Bahia thread and I am sure more girls will have insight there.

Hi!  We're planning for March 2012.  I've already booked our wedding day with the wedding planner!! Yay....but I just got a cheaper rate with itravel2000.com, I'm supposed to go and sign my contract tomorrow with my TA but now i don't know what to do!!!  I've paid a deposit with her already, I'm hoping maybe she will price match, cause they quoted like $200 cheaper.  AAAAHHHH the stress.  I don't want to make my quests pay more than they have to.  I hope things will work out.  Oh also the wedding planner told me that we can change the wedding package anytime depending on how many guests book!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
