    You look amazing, and it is exciting to hear from a bride who got married at the Gran!

    I must say, I was SERIOUSLY considering the Gran when I first started looking for wedding locations but was horrified by all of the overbooking reports on trip advisor. Did you or your guests have any problems with this?

      HI!
      OMG! I can't wait to read your review! I need to hear all about it since I am getting married there Next May! How was Micaela? Did you book your rooms through ALex? Who should I talk to about reserving them? I am just having the reception there (the ceremony will be at the Royal). What helpful hints do i need to know! I feel so nervous about the whole thing!
      Glad everything worked out for you. Oh, how was the weather?
      **Shannon** 40 people BOOKED! (but only 23 made it b/c of the Swine flu Pandemic )

        I was really worried about this as well, but I was really set on the location of the Gran so I pretty much just crossed my fingers. Luckily we didn't have any issues with any of our guests. The only little thing was that some of my guests were overbooked, but got upgraded to a better room for the first night, then had to change rooms the next day to the one they originally paid for. Not a huge problem though.

            Micaela was really nice and great to work with. We met with her the day before the wedding to get everything settled and then I saw her once during the wedding and didn't really see her again after that. No problem though. We just reserved our rooms online through their website and had no problems. Although the weather forecast called for isolated thunderstorms the whole week, it did not affect us in PDC at all, so I was pretty happy about that. I'm almost done my review so will be posting it this week hopefully! Let me know if you have any other questions!!

              I have read a lot about the over booking...it scares me but as long as they take care of you right away - i'm sure it will be fine. That's good to know about the weather! Its a concern for me too! Did you get a discount on the rooms? I will want to reserve about 25!

                You can get a group discount with a minimum of 10 people I believe. You can either get the discount through a travel agent or through the hotel directly. The hotel reservation people can take awhile to get back to you though.
