    Our TA is heading down there in May or in August to tour the new resort on the complex (Grand Hotel). She said she'll take a ton of photos and send them to us, so I'll pass those your way too (just remind me!)... Last time she photographed a resort for us, she came back with 350 phtos of Moon Palace.

    I was wondering about the appearance too because I must have found the same photos as your FI--- but I've come across a couple people who have been there and said it's really beautiful. Plus, I fell in love with their beach--- the water looks absolutely AMAZING!!!!

    We originally planned on 12-1 for the wedding, but my FI's job is really crazy at that time, so we moved it to January---- You're the only other Iberostar bride I've heard of on here----

    (cloud 9 feels *really* good right now!!! :)

        Mikki --

        Thanks for the offer!!! Yea I think the Del Mar looks really nice, I don't know what his problem is... oh well. But your resort, the Lindo, is suppose to be BEAUTIFUL!! All the Iberostars are hard to book because they fill up so quickly, have you noticed that you can't book them on Expedia or Travelocity, thats because they are in such popular demand (according to our TA). Plus the WC who I worked with (Reyna) is so super responsive.

        The only thing is that I wish some photographers would put the Iberostars in their blogs so we can take a look at wedding pictures there.

        But I wouldn't worry about the Lindo, everything I've heard sounds great!!

        Congradulations and Great Choice!

          I noticed that on Expedia too, but I just assumed it was because I was searching too far out for a date...

          Are you allowed to bring in an outside photographer at del Mar? Our Lindo person said we have to use their photographer. When I looked at his website, it was ok, but nothing too impressive. That was the only disappointing so far. But our TA is making it very clear to the WC that there are going to be some guests (as well as myself) who are photographers and not to give us a hard time about seeing pro equipment from someone else.

          mikki most of the girls have put their photogs on the guest list and then they can attend.
          Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

            I really haven't gotten that far to asking about the Photographer. But as far as I know, you can make them your guest by paying for them to stay at the hotel the night.

            But if I get that far I will definatly let you know!

              I'll have to check into that---They told my TA I would have to pay $300 to their photographer if I brought someone else in. Whether that's to book them into a room for the night or just a flat fee, I don't know. I'm hoping one of my college friends can make it to the wedding because he owes me a photography favor and having him shoot my wedding it! :)

                I'm so happy for you! That part of the planning is very stressful!
                Good luck and happy planning!
