i completely understand your angst and i hate the fact that their nickle and diming us..but..it is what it is...
did you qualify for the FREE wedding at the grande? perhaps that's a way to avoid the cost..and/or maybe you hold an intimate ceremony offsite and then do a dinner at one of the restaurants..if your guests are staying there? everyone could make their dinner reservations for the same day (depending on how many ppl) and just meet up there..or have everyone meet in the buffet restaurant and take over a side of it...that might be a better and more viable option.
iberostar is a beautiful resort but they really need to revamp their wedding packages, etc..there are so many other resorts in jamaica that offer FREEBIES and so they should SERIOUSLY consider doing that...
i bet if more brides brought up situations like this and/or cancelled, they'd have to reconsider our wants/needs/etc.
good luck and as always, happy planning!!

I'm not having any chairs for the ceremony and the Grand still wants me to spend $20 per person which is going to cost me $800 for NOTHING! She said regardless I have to pay. WHAT THE F*CK!
Anyone know what the penalty for cancelling the wedding but still staying at the property is? Right about now with all the extra cost,...Im thinking about having my ceremony and reception elsewhere!
