That's terrible! Can they even do that? I'm getting married at the Suites on 7/7/12 and have confirmed with their WC (Nicole) that the rates have not changed for them but if they had I would be livid as well. When you signed the agreement, were there any rates on there? If so, then I can't see how they can change an agreement without the consent of all parties. They should also allow you to use the vendors you've already booked if you can provide proof that you booked them before the new rates were released. You will lose money if you have to cancel those vendors and the hotel needs to be sensitive to that. I would write EVERYONE and their mother at Iberostar until they fix this. I would also write negative reviews wherever I could warning future brides and copies to the WC at the Grand (but I'm really aggressive like that...lol). Hope it works out for you in the end.

And The house DJ!???? this is unreal!!!! Do you know the prices went up from $1700 to rent the Port Maria to $3000!!!!! that is outrageous!!! I posted on Iberostar facebook page- i posted on tripadvisor. The prices are ruining my wedding. I went with Iberostar because of the freedom to select vendors and now I'm completely screwed. The thing is I booked most of my vendors- now what. How was I supposed to know about that. And the steel drums were $200 an hour to book now with the hotel it is $450 an hour to book. Well, they are losing my business- any ideas of where to have a wedding or reception off property?
