Yeah, the Hard Rock is one of the pricier resorts... we were looking at it because the pictures and reviews looked great but we don't want to ask our friends and family to fork out that kind of moolah, so we looked elsewhere. I'm not sure if you are located in the US or Canada... travel arrangements work differently... first off is to get a travel agent and see about getting quotes. Spread the word to those you want to invite to give them notice... we started our wedding planning in October, got quotes in November, and chose the resort in December. Now we have to wait until the spring to book anything because here (in Canada) flight schedules won't be posted until then, and the tour operator won't let us leave a deposit before then. I wish you the best of luck in your planning!
