OFFICIAL Gran Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Thread

Recommended Posts

@@GBPTBride Are they saying that even if you have your photographer stay for at least 5 nights as a guests you have to pay and additional $500USD???

 

Yes! So ridiculous! Erika Montes TROPICONESTUDIO <emontes@@Tropiconestudio.com> attached a PDF outlining their services and external photgrapher policies when I inquired.

 

The SPA is telling $300 USD for external hair and makeup services.

 

To bring in an external DJ they are charging $90 USD.

 

Very frustrating.

Thanks to the generous Kristine for forwarding me the 2015 prices, I have made changes to the main posts of this thread.  I have added a picture from a wedding at the Tulum location, updated the 2015 wedding package pricing, updated the photo & video pricing, and updated the spa pricing.

 

If anyone has any questions, please let me know! I'm more than happy to help when I can.

 

As far as photos go, in case you are wondering what the amount of photos provided in the packages actual "feels" like in terms of wedding photos, here are my last three weddings I photographed at the GBP: http://faberphotography.com/photocart/index.php?category=12

 

Nikki & Tim have a total of 1206 photos

Mariah & Josh have a total of 903 photos from their wedding and 139 from their trash the dress

Cheryl & Aaron have a total of 957 photos from their wedding, 195 from their trash the dress, and 60 from swimming with the dolphins

Checked in last last night in Akumal after an air transat screw up made is 6 hours late. So happy with the Don Pablo collection so far. Got gold bracelets with red stars. Haven't seen a single butler yet had one come around yet but hopefully we will. Villa 66 right near construction but haven't heard a peer out of them. 4 days until the wedding!!! I meet with my eeddiy planner Latisha at noon :)

Yeah, the link to the menus doesn't have all the restaurants and doesn't give regular updates anymore. It's a shame :(

 

@@Shannonandangelina I'm glad you guys arrived, even if a little late!  Enjoy every minute of it! :)

Any brides fly in an external photgrapher recently?

 

Was the photographer charged a $500 USD photographer fee to their room?

 

Is this fee negotiable? I am trying to complain my way out of it.

If a "family friend" is photographing your wedding, they don't have a photography company name and therefore you would not return the sheet to the on-site photographers when they ask for that information.  if they don't have that information, I'm not sure how they could charge a $500 fee.

Trisha,

 

Are you able to tell us which wedding packages were chosen for the photographs you've listed below? It would be a huge help to be able to see what the packages look like!

You actually can't tell by looking at pictures what the difference in the packages are.

 

The only difference that you could see between Sunshine and Unforgettable is the live music & the flower decorations at the bridal table for dinner.  However you can purchase both of these items separately if you'd like.  

 

Nikki & Tim had live music at their dinner reception in Arelquin, if you'd like to see that.

    • 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.
    • 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?
