Plus the awards they have received for food far surpasses other AI resorts. And just go back and look at the slide shows of past weddings there. Look how amazing they are.
Don't worry everything will turn out just fine. Don't have any regrets Your day will be perfect and exactly what you wanted it to be. In the mean time do what I do and make sure you are stock full of wine ahahah to help you get through it.

So, I just emailed Zulma and she said that the bridal flowers are $90 and the bridesmaid flowers are $70. I'm confused because mine should be free with the luxury package, and I was quoted $60 for the bridesmaids. I also asked if there was a cheaper option on the bridesmaids flowers and she didn't answer that question =(
I'm starting to get frustrated with the lack of communication and misinformation. I mean how are you supposed to budget correctly if you get 10 different answers from everyone? It also takes forever for anyone to get back to you. I know they are overwhelmed and I honestly wouldn't care about the wait if once they did email you back it was the answer to the question you asked!!!! I'm 3 months away from my wedding and I feel like nothing is planned. It scares me that you don't pick out flowers or anything until the day before the wedding! I mean nobody from the resort will help me on this or give me any difinitive answer on anything.
Hope this helps, sorry you are having troubles Weddings are supposed to be fun!!

I went for a site visit a couple weekends ago, and the resort is amazing. We didn't get to stay there unfortunately, but we did have access to the Gran Porto, which is very nice too.
Since I booked with the "new" pricing, the vendor fee was $350, so I am using the Royal's photographer. Luckily they use Dorremix for the DJ!
I have a question about getting a group rate...They told me I need to put down a deposit for the 1st night of each room. That seems a little crazy to me. I tried getting a TA to help me with this but he said he can't get in touch with them. Does anyone have a block of rooms there without a deposit??
I don't know anything about the group rate, sorry!

My hairdresser got married at the Iberostar a year ago november and she had a very hard time getting in touch with her WC prior to the wedding - i think this is a common thread among destination weddings. Perhaps partly a cultural difference (slower pace, etc), but I do believe that every one of us will come back from our weddings with a big huge smile on our faces!!!
