jpitts78-Glad I will be able to offer my experience at the Grand. Have you been working with Martha? She was fantastic to work with.

BBtoB - you will hopefully be as blown away on your honeymoon at the Grand as we were with our experience there. We walked around the entire first day with our mouths on the floor, it's amazing to say the least.

I have lots of information, opinions, and pictures to share, I'm just still trying to learn how to navigate myself around the forum and figure out the best way to post a review and pictures. It may take me some time but I'm working on it!

ParaisoBeachBride - I think I remember seeing somewhere that you used a template for your review, is there some where I can get the template or did you just use it as a guide?

Iberostar09 - Hi! Well, I sort of used SunBride's review as a guide for my own, the formatting is essentially the same. I put my review together in Word first so that I wouldn't timeout of the site whilst posting it haha. Good luck, can't wait to read your review!! :)

For those of you who had their cocktail our at the Tropical Restaurant, what did you do for music? Reyna just told me there are no outlets to plug in the iPod dock., and that I could use the DJ if I wanted. I'm using DJ Bob for the reception, so I figured I'd just play tropical music during the cocktail hour. Just curious, what did you guys do? I might get the mariachi instead, but of course that's more money! :)

BBtoB - The WC was pretty quick the first two times I asked them questions. They got back to me in less then 2 days. My third round of questions is taking a bit longer. Emailed them this past Monday, 3/30 and haven't heard back from them yet.

We have 62 people coming and I feel pretty good about most things. We rented the Tropical Restaurant for 7pm and are doing an hour of cocktails and apps starting at 6pm. We hired DJ bob for the night and I also am having an outside photographer coming in- I'm using Claudia Rodriguez Photographer. If anyone has questions please let me know. As soon as we return I will post a review. The count down is on!
What are you planning for guests between time ceremony over and cocktail hr? Mine is scheduled for 420, was thinking of moving to 5. WC said ceremony takes 15-20 min max.

Any past brides have thoughts on this? Do they usually start on time?


For tropical, is it open bar entire night? I have asked several times and no answer. Wondering if we have to give list for alcohol- what wil they have?

I've noticed many brides plan to marry at the Gazebo. Is there anyone out there who plans to marry on the beach? I'm just worried about guests at the resort being so close to us during the ceremony. I dont mind people watching, but i saw a few photos of someone's beach wedding and you could see people in the shot & in the background and to me it just looked really cheesy. i was wondering if anyone else had these reservations about a beach ceremony?

Thanks so much!

Hi!

I am getting married on the beach. I just plan on telling the photographer to avoid pictures of people. Maybe they canbe airbrushed out if you have a special shot. I don't think that they are all that close anyway, and I plan on having plenty of before and after beach shots too.

Mine starts at 4:30 and I was wondering the same thing! Gabriela was pretty vague with me about what the guests will do in between the ceremony and cocktail hour. She said she would take care of it. Not sure what that means! I assumed she would direct them to one of the nearby bars.

She also told me that alcohol is included at the Tropical Restaurant, but I'm also curious about how it is set up. Do we just order whatever drinks we want and the waiters bring them, or is there an actual bar set up where we would get our own drinks. I'd love to know!

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
