    Hello to all future brides and new brides! Im new to this site and glad i found it. im getting married at the Gran Bahia Principe Punta cana April 13th 2013, we fly out of Montreal on the 10th, with our family and friends,and fianc©s family from England... when we arrive there we have 3 days to prep, wedding on saturday and then over to the Esmeralda side for our honeymoon the following week... Im super excited now even though its 8 months away...I emailed the hairdressers as my hair is one of my BIGGEST concerns, im very picky with my hair and worried i wont really like it...we are getting married on the beach so i have asked my coordinator if its possible to have a carpet so i can somehow manage to wear heals lol...We have chosen a private reception, with the DJ and now im debating if i should go with the photographer on site, which seems to have a contract with GBP. Looking forward to hearing and suggestions,tips & details about your special day...or upcoming one! :)

      Welcome and Congratulations!!! I'm also new to this site. I'm also planning my wedding in Punta Cana :) I'm happy for you and hope all the planning goes well especially with the carpet for your ceremony. I'm also worried about my hair so lets just hope for the best lol! I wish I could fly my hair stylist to Punta Cana with me but she has a business to run of her own. I'm having my wedding at the Majestic Resort on May 25th, 2013. Feel like it's just around the corner. I'm leaving NYC 3 days as well for preperation. Wishing you all the best to you and your future husband.

        Awww congrats! :) I was looking into the Majestic Colonial as well before booking at the Gran Bahia, I heard great reviews about the Majestic!!! Did you get your dress yet? I also wish i could fly my hairdresser in, im just so picky about my hair, since ive never dealt with anyone in Punta cana to do my hair im hoping all will go well :) Goodluck with your preps and your special day :)

                  I'm getting married at Gran Bahia Principe Punta Cana on May 1st. We're leaning towards the Gazebo for more privacy. 

                  Does anyone know the difference between the Iron Gazebo and White Gazebo?

                  I've stayed at this resort twice before but can only remember seeing the white gazebo. 

                   

                  Any advise from past brides, I appreciate it!

                  I'm dealing with the wedding coordinator Paola. She's a bit delayed in writing back sometimes but then quick other times. I much prefer quick responses!

                    I would seriously think twice about your wedding location ladies. I just read this crazy news article about a Canadian couple's dream wedding turning into a nightmare from hell. Her husband and cousin are being held for three months in jail in the DR. Read this article.

                      I heard about this the other day. Such a sin! That wouldn't stop be going anywhere though. If you read polices articles before you went anywhere, you'd stay home forever. I've been to DR twice, Bahamas twice, Vegas 4 times, New York... Clearly all places that aren't the average safe place. Don't let this scare you brides :) people can get in a middle of the night drunken fight anywhere, including in your home town. Just warn your guests to stay out of trouble. There's always those who like a fight.
