Don’t let the name “Hard Rock” make you think it’s a heavy metal, wild party, out of control people kind of resort.  It’s just not like that at all.  Hard Rock is all about the experience and the fun you will have with your friends and family.  Yes, they do play music – pop, rock & roll, country, classic rock, and more.  Yes, there is a lot of fun to be had including foam parties, pool games, karaoke, water sports, rock climbing, minigolf, teens and kids clubs, nightclub, golf, spa, etc.

Here are a few things you can expect at Hard Rock:

√  Beautiful Beaches
√  Luxurious rooms with Jacuzzi tubs
√  Plenty of restaurants, bars, snacks and 24 hour room service
√  Entertainment and nightlife including live bands, concerts, shows, and nightclubs
√  Customized weddings or designer collections
√  Complimentary stay for the bride/groom in a Diamond category room*
√  Events such as welcome party, cocktail/reception, and farewell brunch free*
√  Guests will want to return for another vacation
√  Fun times for all with amazing memories!

There is something for everyone at Hard Rock, even for the ones who like peace and quiet, we have that too!

All-inclusive resorts aren’t necessarily expensive when you add in everything that you receive for the prepaid rate.  The question is how much value are you getting for your money.

Take a hotel room for 2 people in a city where you may vacation in the U.S. , say Chicago, Atlanta, New York, Denver.  Any of these would cost you minimum of $150 per night plus tax and probably much more.

So take the $150 plus tax and you have roughly $175 per night.  Now add on all of the food, room service, alcohol, beer, wine, bottled water or anything else that you would have in a day while on vacation.  That could easily be $60 to $150 per person per day.  So we will take the low end of $60 per person.

Now add on a beach, lounge chairs, tropical weather, sunshine, music, activities, friends, family – can you picture it?  Okay, that is worth something, correct?

And don’t forget to add on a premium for the time of year.  Getting out of winter is going to come at a higher price.

So now we have the room at $175 per night, food at $120 minimum per day for two people, and ambiance which is pretty much priceless.  The total for 2 people at the low end would be $295 per night.  If you are spending roughly $150 to $200 per person on an average resort for all-inclusive that seems really fair.  If you are at a luxury resort such as Hard Rock, Palace or an adults only resort, you really need to add to the budget.  Hard Rock and Palace offer a very large resort credit that you can use for spa, golf, excursions, etc. and that really adds to the value.

Instead of looking at an all-inclusive as expensive, look at the value you are receiving and compare to what you would spend in the U.S. on a similar vacation.  Many of my destination wedding groups have never traveled to an all-inclusive but when they return they are ready to plan their next vacation!  It’s easy, it’s relaxing, it’s a great value.

Once you decide to have a destination wedding it’s time to find a TA (travel agent) to assist you.  All TAs are not destination wedding specialists and many have never handled a group.  So it’s very important to find someone that has your best interests in mind and has experience in destination weddings.  A good DW specialist can assist you in finding the perfect resort and destination for your wedding.

Some couples look for the cheapest rate, which TAs can provide as well, but by choosing the least expensive doesn’t mean that you will have a good experience or even save money.   A destination wedding is not the time to try DIY (do it yourself).  You need someone to assist you even though you may think you don’t!

It’s not like shopping for a car or a new pair of shoes where price is the only thing that matters when you are getting an object for your money. When you look for a photographer, accountant, child care, attorney, decorator, or any other professional for advice and to take care of something important to you, do you want the cheapest even though they may have no experience or haven’t worked with the resorts?  Many TAs work with the same suppliers and have the same or very similar rates, so if someone is giving you a much lower rate there may be a reason. Use the recommendations of other brides and ask for references.

There are no fees or additional costs for my services and I would be happy to help you plan your wedding in Mexico or the Caribbean.  Some of my favorite resorts are Hard Rock, Palace, and Secrets/Dreams/Now.  They all offer excellent comps and benefits to couples and have amazing, customizable wedding packages.

Have an amazing day!  And remember Price is what you pay, value is what you receive.
