    Hello everyone!


    My name is Maria.  I am getting married at the Gran Bahia Principe in JA on Aug 28/2012.


    We're having approx. 18 people coming to the wedding.


    I'm trying to figure out if we should rent out the pisces (if its worth it) or try to set up reception in the gazebo

    after the ceremony. I would love to have cocktail hour set up on the beach while they are setting up the gazebo.


    Any ideas? or any pictures?

      hi maria I too am getting married at GBP, currently we have 18 poeple booked and I have yet to send out the invitations :) I am planning on renting the gazebo dj and bar for our reception, as I think we will have apx 40 guests anyways i found a forum on here called, "Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?" which has a ton of info from past and present brides of GBP, so just search that and you will be able to find the forum, which helped me actually choose this resort after seeing and hearing all the rav reviews and pics, good luck and happy planning :)

          Hello ladies,

          Just returned from our wedding at the GBP in Jamaica, everything was wonderful and you will not have to lift a finger!  We had 65 guests with us and everyone loved the week.

          We brought our own photographer and you can view the pics at the below link; she was amazing!! the photos outstanding!


          A few tips for the party....

          We got married on the point instead of the Gazebo which was breath taking.

          Dinner at the Italian the restaurant closed off the one section and had them server chicken instead of pasta, great meal!

          Party was on the beach by the other Gazebo closer to the Disco by the Jerk hut, we rented the DJ, but didn't get the bar tenders, had a few go up to the Bar near the disco and they brought back 4 jugs of rum punch and beer, way cheaper!!!  DJ played till 11 and then off to the Disco lol

          You have picked a great resort, any questions please let me know

          Salon was great, no complaints from any of the girls

          Go with an open mind and u will have no worries mon, Good Luck on your special days

              Definitely check out the thread on here for Gran Bahia brides! I am getting married in a couple of weeks and it has been my go-to place for the past year. No clue what I would have done without it! Good luck and happy planning :)

                Hi there, I too am getting married at the GBP but not until December.  Im very curious, I was told we only have two choices for the reception supper venue/restaurants.  Id love to rent out the gazebo for supper, did you find out if you could and how much??? We are only having 13 people so we'd like something romantic and intimate, lights, globes, candles, tool, etc. but I was told they don't provide that stuff.  Are you decorating or just having a very simple wedding??? Hope you don't mind with the questions but quite frankly am very confused over having a destination wedding!!!


                Thank you,

                sincerely Lisa

                  Try that link. Not sure if it works but search Gran Bahia and click on the thread that says Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides Out There?


                  The reception can be had at the gazebo, but the dinner can be at two of the restaurants or there are other restaurants you can rent out completely!


                  I am bringing certain decorations. You can bring them in your suitcase but I think you don't need to go overboard with it. Check that thread, there are so many suggestions and ideas on there!
