Congratulations! I too am leaning towards booking at the Iberostar Grand for a projected fall 2014 wedding. We are thinking October. I am waiting on a travel agent to get back with me before booking! Did you book through a TA? Have you only booked your wedding date or have you booked rooms as well? I just feel like I'm skipping steps! My head is all over the place when I'm looking through this site! I am already overwhelmed with all the different things there are to plan and look at. I feel like I spend hours upon hours on this site as well as others and I really never get anywhere with anything!! I have found SOOOOO many ideas and helpful threads on here already. I wish I could find more recent ones, however. I'd love to hear some of your ideas, insights! It's too exciting! :woot:

Thanks!!  Congrats to you as well!!  We did book through a travel agent and i would strongly recommend doing that.  Honestly, I'm not sure we got the best deal with the travel agent especially booking multiple rooms.  I've seen some posts on this website where people received incentives from the resort for booking so many people.  My advice is to make sure your travel agent will do this for you.  Unfortuantely, I asked the question after we had already book and I think we are getting a few perks, but probably not as much as we could have.  We have the trip booked as well as our wedding date.  The one thing I really liked about the Iberostar is that they only hold one wedding per day per resort (Grand, Suites, Beach), which I think is fantastic!!

 

I agree...there are so many great ideas on this site!  My head has been spinning.  I'm just afraid I won't remember it all when it comes time to actually do some of the things.  We don't have much planned at this point....I have sent STD's and started a wedding website, but I feel like that is about it.  I'm happy to share any ideas or thoughts with you.  Feel free to private message me.  :cheers:

Hi Jennkn87. I tried to reply the other day but I guess it didn't post...thank you and congrats to you as well! We did book through a travel agent and I would recommend doing so. But make sure you find one that will offer you the most incentives for the rooms/trips you book. We have our date and trip booked. We did not book a block of rooms, just referring everyone to our travel agent. Good luck on selecting your destination! We haven't been to the Grand, but from all the reviews it sounds fabulous!! :cheers:

asu10- Thanks! May I ask what travel agent you used? I have contacted Wright Travel Agency through the BDW website after reading many great reviews on their agents. I however haven't read any reviews on the lady that contacted me back. I'm hoping she is good.

The travel agent I used was recommended by a friend that did a destination wedding last year. I've been happy with her except one thing...I don't feel like we are getting many incentives if we have so many people book. I've read on here that many brides received free rooms or nights based on the number of people that booked. My advice is to address this up front with any potential TA and make sure they will get you the most incentives. That is my only regret that I didn't do. :(

Hello, I am a newbie bride gettingmarried at the Grand as well. The planning process for me had been stressful. I finally broke down and hired a planner in my home town. She immediately put me on punishment. LOL I have to admit, the break from planning was just what I needed. I've seen reviews about Tai Flora and Digipix and I'm not sure if these two vendors fit our needs and budget. I want to do a lot of DIY projects to cut costs and add personal touches. Any advice is greatly appreciated. CONGRATS! :-D
