Hi Madison87!!

 

Thank you for posting your questions To the Grand.  I just sent them a similar email tonight (before I read your post) in regards to some questions on the details of pricing.  My fiance and I were looking at renting the Port Maria for our reception (30 guests), and I was alarmed that our paperwork said the $3000 did not include open bar, especially since all our guests are staying at the Grand!!  I'm really looking forward to seeing your updated price list, as we are definitely going to reconsider the private reception if it does not include the alcohol.  I'm also surprised to see that the "a la carte" menu is only $70 per person with no rental fee (minimum 30 guests I'm assuming), I'm wandering if alcohol is included in this or if it's an extra fee. 

 

I just showed my fiance your post, and we both found it funny that in response to your question about extending the rental till 11PM, she told you there was a cash charge for the staff, it sounds just a little sketchy.

 

Overall, we are planning our wedding for November 2013, but we haven't found the correspondence with the resort very professional.  It's a pretty penny to stay there, therefore you have an expectation of service.  I have to say, we absolutely LOVE the resort (stayed in May 2011), but I don't feel a sense of ease with the organization.

 

Is it possible to PM me your Wedding Details attachment?  I don't have enough posts on the forum yet, therefore don't have access.

 

Thanks so much!!!

 

Sarah

 

Sarah if you don't mind me asking what are your rates running. I just want an estimate even though I know it won't be the same in 2014. I just want to know what ball figure my guests may be looking around. My paperwork says premium bar is included with the private reception and when i asked Janielle she said both included the alcohol. It is so weird because at all of the Iberostar Jamaica resorts there are mixed issues when it comes to the WC. I noticed that when I get a response it is very short maybe like two words are so but it covers what I need it to cover and if not I re email her the question again and reiterate what I asked her.

I chalked up Janielles short/ blunt responses my questions to the laid-back Jamaician culture. Since many of the answers were vague, to settle my nerves, I added an international rate plan to my cellphone and called her a few times two to three week intervals the last two months before the wedding. Each time with a well prepared list of questions, including my what ifs. This helped so much more than the emailing. She was available 97% of the times I called.....FYI

Janielle gets much better as you get closer to the wedding. Her and her partner work non stop, her job is crazy. But she will have everything under control for you when you get there! No worries mon!!

Hello Ladies,

Forgive me if this has been answered (still trying to get through most of the thread), but what made most of you decide to have your wedding at Iberostar Grand?  I think I'm overwhelmed with the many choices for location in Jamaica, so maybe your answers will help.  Thank you cheesy.gif

They only host one wedding a day (unlike Sandals which has weddings every 45 minutes), this allows them to focus on you and you only. The resort is adult only and it's 5 star (butler service, premium liquor, room service).

Hey past grand brides!!

Can any of you post a picture of your cake? Did you use the generic cake with the package or did you pay more for a specialty cake? thanks!!!

I chose the basic cake that came with the package, cheesecake to be exact, just b/c it was different. In all of my planning, I never considered cake details. Everything was so perfect on my wedding day I didn't even pay attention to the cake, we had been drinking and partying it up! It wasn't until I returned home and saw pictures of the cake did I realize it was ugly, actually hideous. Although it was not easy on the eyes, it tasted good.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
