    Hello :)


    Is there any other 2014 brides planning their wedding at Gran Bahia Principe Punta Cana for 2014?

    We've been to the resort twice, 2008 and 2009, and we've decided to go back for our wedding. 

    We've chosen May 1, 2014 as the ceremony and reception date.


    If you're planning for the same resort, let me know your experience so far and we can bounce ideas back and forth :)


    I'm usually pretty controlling in anything that I do, so this is going to be a new experience for me planning something in the Dominican when I love in Canada!

      I would seriously re think your local. Look at this recent article about a Canadian couple that was married at this resort in the DR. could happen to anyone. Crazy!!

        hi! I hope your wedding planning is going well.  I'm also getting married at the GBP punta cana but a little later than you.  July 2014! how has your experience been so far? I find it's a bit hard to get the wedding coordinators to get in touch with you quickly.  How many guests are you planning for?

            Hi! I've had a great response so far from our wedding coorinator, Paola. She writes me back the same day most times; the next day at the latest unless it's a holiday.


            We took a vacation there last month, so we were able to sit down with the coordinator and pick out the flowers, colors, etc.. She also took us to the Garden Grill where we are having our reception in the private room. It holds 40 people, so i'm hoping we don't exceed that. We have 33 booked right now. I almost wish I had planned the outdoor restaurant for the reception because it's a bigger space, but I think the heat will be too exhausting after all day. It was much hotter at night last time we were there compared to what I remember from our previous trips. 


            So far, so good. I'm looking forward to it! It's so laid back and easy to plan. Shouldn't be stressful at all.


            We're having the dinner, dance, DJ and open bar. I have the salon booked for the morning of our wedding as well as the photographers.

            Hi Ladies,

            I was wondering if you had any more updates on the planning process. We are looking at booking there for a year from now and just wanted to know what your experience has been like and if you have any advice.
