In July, Nicole and Tiffany didn't have a guest/table type document.  I just sent my own spreadsheet with the guest list and meal selections.  The only document I got from them to complete was the Details document.  I had the extra charges and wedding documents from when we booked, so it was just filling out the Details one to send back.  I put so much detail in that thing and thought they would be so confused because it was information overload.  When we got down there and had our meeting with them, they had it all broken out and where ready with everything I wanted.  Things seem chaotic and up in the air, but when you get there the details really do fall into place and they do a fabulous job!  Good luck!

Great! Thank you!! I am thinking I will have about 20 as well. Appreciate the feedback.

NO one knows about it... when my fiance and I went in may we went there every night before and after dinner for a drink and we were the only ones in there every night... we had our very own personal bar tender... sooo my fiance and i decided we are going to do our welcome party there and save some cash!  hope that helps-  i would try that out over the lobby bar! Happy planning!!!!

Great advice! I will make sure to check that out. So, kfarkas26, have you visited the Grand before? I see your wedding is not until next year.

Great tip, thank you! We'd planned on our group just meeting for an informal 'meet and greet' at the lobby bar but I like the idea of a bit more privacy, and quiet, as we intend to intro our families and say a few thank yous. Thanks again!

Do you have a photo of the piano bar? I searched online and found a pic, but found a pic of the same bar that another visitor took and labelled 'lobby bar' so I'm not sure what either look like now, lol.

Thanks!

Urghhh...just found out the Suites is fully booked during the week of our wedding...and we still have a bunch of people who have not yet booked!

 

Can a past bride who had guests at 2 or 3 of the properties explain how non-wedding day guest passes work and how much they cost? I have the doc from the resort, but I think the rates must refer to non-Iberostar guests:

 

It states this about day passes:

Day $75

Night $100

All day/night $150

and then the all-day wedding pass for Beach guests are $30

 

Does that mean our Beach guests would have to spend $75-$150 per day to come over to hang out with our group at the Suites?! When on wedding day they're only charged $30?

 

What about if we want to host a rehearsal dinner at the Suites - is that a $100 charge per Beach guest to come over and eat with the group? We were planning a rehearsal and farewell dinner at the Suites.

 

I know Grand guests don't have to pay anything extra so we're going to encourage ppl to stay at the Grand. We know some won't want to or can't afford to, but I want them to understand exactly how much it'll cost to come over to the Suites over and above their package price.

 

Thanks for your help!

Kfarkas26... I checked out the link below from Alier1 (thank you! great photos!) and it looks like the lobby bar IS the Piano Bar, isn't it? The lobby bar has a big piano sculpture in it so presume it's called the Piano Bar. Or is what you are referring to as piano bar actually the Blue Moon Music Bar?

 

LOL, just trying to figure it out... :)

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
