Hey Iberostar gals!
I have been a little MIA since returning from our wedding at the Lindo, but I wanted to pop in and offer any assistance you might need if any of you are forced to move to the Lindo because of the closings.
People told me this before I left on the boards and I never believed it till we got there, but...the WCs will take care of EVERYTHING you ever wanted and more. If you can just have an idea of what you want- they will make it happen for you. I know it's easier said than done, but I just had to 'let it happen' and stop being bridezilla and it made everything SO MUCH EASIER. What you remember about your day will be the people and the moments, not the chair sashes or seating arrangements.
Araceli is actually no longer at the Lindo, but TONY is AMAZING!!! We had our ceremony on the beach, coctail hour at the Snake Pit in the Maya (which sounds weird but is a BEAUTIFUL indoor bar) and dinner at the Steakhouse (around the corner from the Snake Bar) and reception at the Plaza in the Shopping Center which was WONDERFUL. Everyone commented that it was so unique and was wonderful to dance under the stars. We hired DJ BOB who was WELL WORTH the money. The only thing I would have done differently is had the reception dinner at the Seafood instead of the Steakhouse. They are right next door to each other and have similar options for the group menu choices, but in my opinion, the Seafood IS SO MUCH PRETTIER!!!
If you have any questions for me please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
