OFFICIAL Gran Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Thread

Recommended Posts

Personally, for $3300, only getting 140 photos and 4 hours of coverage is not worth it to me.  That's really expensive for very little.  You could very easily fly in your own photographer for that and have hundreds of pictures and a dedicated photographer for your entire wedding day.
I know u probably have already but can you post a link to your website so that I can look at your photos. I was looking at the photo packages from the host vender and I agree they are super expensive! How far in advance do you need to know the date? How many weddings have you done at the GBP? Thanks Nicole soon to be Engelquist!!!

Hey Past Brides!!! I have a question, it may have been posted already but I haven't read anything about it so hear it goes. I know hair and makeup isn't included in the packages but do they have someone there that does it or do u have to find and outside vender? And if so does anyone have contact info or a good review for someone they used? I really want my hair done and my bridesmaids hair done. Thanks for your help!!! Nicole soon to be Engelquist!

Well Hi!  Welcome to the forum!

 

my website is www.faberphotography.com.  There is a gallery for destination weddings and also if you go under categories you can see my most recent destination weddings, including the two I've photographed at the Gran Bahia.

 

If you'd like to hire me, the sooner the better.  Since i photograph weddings here in Wisconsin as well, I fill up fast.  But hopefully we could work something out :)

There is a spa at the resort.  Many people have used them.  Some happy with their services (like I was) some, not so happy.  There are also outside vendors.  MVP and The Makeup Pros are both really great options if you wanted to go that route.

 

Best wishes!

Is anyone else getting married the Gran Bahia Principe around April 10th, and wanting to split on the cost of a photographer?????

She has amazing work, so great to talk to, and we could both save some money instead of using the resort photographer, and have great pictures! :)

Where in Wisconsin are you from. I'm originally from there but moved to BC, Canada about 4years ago to be with my fiance.  Do you remember how much the hair and make-up at the resort cost?  I want to get married on May3rd, 2014, but the problem is I can't book a date yet through the resort till they come out with their new packages, so i'm not sure if i can get that date for sure.  How far in advance do you usually book up?  The WC at the resort said she wouldn't be getting the new packages till about april 2013.

Where in wisconsin are you from, I'm oringinally from there.  Moved to BC, Canada 4years ago to be with my fiance.  Do you remember how much the resort hair and make-up cost?  Also, how long in advance do you usually book up, I'm hoping to get May 4th, 2014. But the resort WC can't book a date until they get the packages from that year out, and she said she won't be getting them till April or May 2013. 

 

Thanks.....

I'm just north of Milwaukee!  Where were you from? 

 

Back when I got married, hair was $85 and makeup $55.  I think it's listed in the spa section of this thread what they are now though. 

 

I just booked a June 2014 wedding.  But I can put something on my calendar for your date as a hold.  And if anyone contacts me about it, I can let you know first.

I was born in Rockford, IL.  My Mom lives in Mukwonago, WI.  I have a brother in Madison, and my Father is from Monroe.  So lots of family all over.  Yeah and can you pencil me in for May 3rd 2014, cause thats the date set in my mind but I wanna make sure that I get booked into the resort before I start booking my venders and such.  And Can you possible send me a package list, or what you normally include in your destination wedding photo package, with the prices?

    • 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?
