I know a lot of people on BDW have gone through travel agents for pricing. We didn't. I called around to the airlines and to hotels and asked them what is the best rate they could offer our guests. Don't just check web prices, call, too!
We are choosing our hotel because it is on both of our sisters' timeshares. This will make it more cost effective for our parents and siblings to attend since our sisters can request multiple rooms through the timeshare. We also are choosing this hotel because they have the lowest fee for guest passes and many of our guests live on the island or will need to stay at other hotels. Lastly, since we are having our wedding, reception, and other activities off-site, we didn't want our guests to feel like they were losing money staying at an all-inclusive and not having any of the benefits. This hotel offers European, Full breakfast, and All-inclusive plans, allowing our guests to choose what fits them best.
Hope this helps.

I'm feeling very discouraged at the moment because I've fallen in love with a hotel that is out of our price range I'm really in love with Majestic Colonial. But for our June wedding the best price I can find is $1365 and we're trying to stay as close as possible to $1200. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I win the lottery but I don't think it's going to happen. Time for a reality check. Don't you just hate those.
So....For all of you who have already picked your hotel. Which hotel did you pick and why?
