Gran Bahia Prinicpe Punta Cana - Gazebo/Beach

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

 

Does anyone know if you get to pick where you want to have your ceremony when you get there as opposed to choosing beforehand?

I ask because I rather be able to see the locations before I choose...

 

If anyone has been married there already - any recommendations as to where to have the ceremony (beach or gazebo)?

 

Thanks!!!

Well I picked the "white gazebo" if anyone is keeping up with this thread who has the same interests.

 

I made this decision due to privacy concerns.

Basically, I saw pictures of ceremonies on the beach at this resort and I was creeped out - mainly because of the loads of ignorant people that are able to get right up to your ceremony and end up making it look like a mosh pit and then the yellow caution tape they put around the ceremony area.

Hey,

 

I'm also looking at getting married there and am wondering about the ceremony location.  I am very worried about all the gawkers.  We've decided on a sunset ceremony (5pm) and are hoping the beach will have cleared out, but are hoping to be able to change to the white gazebo if it doesn't look like the beach will be any less busy in the evening.  Any suggestions?

Well I'll tell you I ended up booking the gazebo.

The idea of gawkers didn't sit well with me and I thought this was best.  More private and to be  perfectly honest, the gazebo looks beautiful!

My daughter just returned from the Bahia Esmeralda - she had the gazebo wedding on the beach by the Amber at 5:00 in the afternoon and you know what ladies -there were people still on the beach but it was fun -you are focused on all your guests anyway and you don't really notice the other people plus - it is the most exquisit setting with the ocean behind you -and the gazebo is a little higher than right down on the beach - don't count it out ladies - have a look before you make your decision - I thought it might be a little impersonal as well but it was actually wonderful.

 

The photographer that the hotel supplies - super super pictures and really reasonable.  He had some excellent shots - you will be really happy with him if you are using him.

Well I saw some pretty ridiculous pictures of some very ignorant tourists getting right up close to the ceremony (I would attach pictures but the website is giving me some issues right now).

I'm easily distracted lol.  If I see some fat man in a thong bikini...I will notice! lol

 

I just want to ensure that my ceremony is very intimate and while I appreciate wanting to have the beautiful scenic background of the ocean and the beach - I won't lie when I say I just found the gazebo to be stunning as well, so I'm not disappointed that I won't be right on the beach.  We will be taking pictures there anyways.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
