Congrats girl!! Your day is fast approaching!!! I'm so excited, and it's not even me going ;-) I know you'll have the wedding of your dreams!!
Thanks for replying to my post. My confusion came from my TA -Dennis (through destinationwedding.com) - He kept telling me that We have to have the wedding at the actual hotel that we were physically staying at. But after reading the posts of the ladies here, I was like 'Wait a minute, this is different than what you've been telling us'
Anywho, I tried asking him again, and same answer, this time with a little chillier attitude. So I went directly to the source, I sent an email to Reyna, and she confirmed what you ladies have been reporting. That you can stay at any of the Iberostar properties (ex. the Grand), and have your wedding at one of the different properties (Ex. Del Mar). So I'm excited about that, because FI and I want to stay at the Grand, and have our guests stay at Lindo (some will be bringing children), and after reading the reviews here, I now want to have my reception at the Del Mar, so I'm going to book my wedding through there!
I hope this explanation wasn't too confusing, but that was the problem, and after my TA's attitude toward me, I'm now in the market for a new TA. You ladies have any suggestions????

I'm sure it has to be an Iberostar property, so maybe clarify that is what you mean so they don't think you want to have it there & stay at Dreams, ya know? I do know that the Grand does not allow any kids-so if you want to stay there & they make you have it where you're staying-beware of that rule.
Hanna-Congrats on solving the photographer dilemma! That's how I felt once I got everything straight with DJ Doremixx because I really wanted him & he wasn't great with the emails. 2 months!! YAY! I'm less than 2 WEEKS & I can't believe it! I was supposed to have my final fitting last week, but apparently I lost more weight & it had to be taken in more *(AWESOME problem to have) so I pick it up Friday & we leave on Monday morning. I can't believe it! I haven't even tried to pack anything yet, and am afraid to see how many bags we'll end up with! And I wanted to ask-are you doing the "starfish" thing in your bouquet? Have you even heard about it? Destination brides put a starfish pin in their bouquet & then pass it along to other destination brides-it's the coolest concept! Let me know
And-ALL BRIDES-learn from my 'shipping' mistake. I sent our favors to the WC via priority mail at the post office on January 6th and they are M.I.A.......even with the tracking #, etc-it says they were last scanned at the New Jersey international office and when I called, I was told "Oh-Mexico's customs is backed up...who knows when it'll get there." They couldn't have mentioned that AT the post office, before I spent $53 on shipping it to the land of no where. Yes, it may have been more at UPS, but it would have gotten there-I'm sure of that. As it stands, we're out the $$ on the favors, and the shipping...it's a shame. I was going to re-order them, but I don't think I'll bother at this point because I'd have to re-ship them to my sister and have her deal with taking them...too much hassle. I wish I had thought about UPS, but I live next to the post office, so I just instinctively went there. Just an FYI to help ya out!
Leaving in 5 days, leaving in 5 days....I say as I look at the 10 ft. snowbank outside... ahhhhhhh
