Iberostar Grand Jamaica Wedding 2013!!!

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am new to this website but I have found so many of the threads helpful so far.  I had a question;

Do you need to use a travel agent in order to hold rooms for your guests?  We booked our wedding for February 2013 and we have been speaking to a travel agent but the prices she has been finding seem outragious and I have found much better package deals for room and flight on Orbitz.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  If we don't hold rooms, how soon will our guests have to book by?  There really are so many questions surrounding destination weddings.  Thanks for your help!

It sucks for us brides because in order to secure our wedding date we have to pay the price at the time we're securing the date. and if it goes down in the future we cant get it for that price.

I might be wrong but this is the issue i just came across. i just threw the towel in on The grand because the prices just keep going up and it sucks finding better deals on orbitz and book it. im now considering the riu. the grand is just wayy over priced

Hi Heather!

 

I'm getting married May 4th, 2013 and we are using a travel agent to coordinate travel and accommodations for ourselves and our guests.  We did have to place a deposit, but if the rate changes at anytime up to 30 days prior to our departure our travel agent will have the resort honor that price.  She was also able to provide a group discount code for our guests so they can be flexible with their room type and length of stay.  Shop around and find a travel agent that works well with you.  Hope this helps!

I have also found destinationweddings.com is helpful. We have been using someone from there and they help set up website and help contact gets for me to remind them. And being that it is early enough you can have your guest set up payment plans so that they don't have to pay all at once.

I was married at Iberostar in Jamaica over 6 months ago. It's beautiful there! Be sure to pay the extra fee through the RGD to have an express license....which will take 4-8 weeks. Otherwise it will take 4-8 months on average!!! I asked for the express license and the wedding planner told me it was not needed, and I listened to her. I still do not have my license. Just an FYI :). Good luck with everything!!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
