Congrats! I am also a Feb 2014 bride however have not picked a date or a resort yet! Very stressed .... we are thinking Cancun/Riv Maya area. Where are you travelling from? How much will your guests be paying?

 

I am travelling to the Gran Caribe Real next week to do a site visit at that resort and some other ones too. I believe we will be doing a visit to the Gran Porto Resort - which is the sister resort to the one we are staying at :)

Thank you Cherina!  I've always wanted to go to Jamaica...

 

Hi BridetobeABCD!  I chose the Gran Porto because of costs... Its a lot cheaper than the Royal and kids can come.  I was looking at the RIUs and a couple other hotels in Playa, and it seemed as though all or most of the guests had to stay at the resort in order to come to your wedding.  Although I would love to have everyone stay at the resort, the reality is that some will not be able to.  Gran Porto does not require guests to stay at the resort!  (Although, you will pay a bit of a higher fee for them to come).  I also loved the Gran Porto because you can have everything outside and customize your wedding.  You can bring your own things (decorations and what not) and they do not mind.  We are doing everything on the North beach (ceremony, cocktail hour and private reception).

 

Since we are having it in Feb (during high season) I'm telling guests that the total cost with airfaire would be somewhere between $1100 and $1400 for 5-6 nights.  But I am letting people come and go as they choose.  If they want to make it a longer or shorter vacation that is okay with me =)  I live in California and our guests are coming from all over (California, Washington, Oregon, Michigan, Indiana, etc -- hence the destination wedding!)

 

Happy planning and have a great time visiting!!!
