    Hi everyone!

    Names: Devon (and Jeff)
    Wedding date: 2011
    Wedding location: Oh maybe Jamaica...or the Yucatan...or the Bahamas...or the Dominican Republic...or possibly Jackson Hole or the Maroon Bells/Aspen area. We're really just in the researching stage. We are leaning toward the Caribbean right now. I just spent Thanksgiving in JA at the Iberostar Grand Rose Hall, and thought it was nice, but the beach wasn't as pretty as I might hope, and the size/decor made it seem kind of Vegas-y if you know what I mean. But we also want it to be all-inclusive, so always get a little bit of that feeling at those kind of resorts. So now maybe the Iberostar Bavaro Grand in DR might be an option [know the quality of Iberostar and I know from staying at Paradisus in Punta Cana that the beach is lovely there]. But I also like really pretty sunsets so I'm also considering Negril - in contact with the Moondance people, which seems ideal, small and lovely with good food, but unfortunately, they don't seem to give a discount for booking a block of rooms, and also the distance from the airport counts against it. I also LOVE the Royal Plantation, but that also seems a little out of my guest's price range. Sigh. We're totally up in the air at this point, but have some time. Any suggestions/opinions from all of you would be totally appreciated. Thanks!

            It was an alright beach, it was just a little shelly/rocky/not powder white. And the water wasn't totally crystal clear blue. I'm probably just a perfectionist, and it's nice that the resort is so close to the airport, but I just felt I've seen nicer beaches in DR, Bahamas, and Ocho Rios.
