About malikmakhi

  1. My wedding is April 13, 2013. I sent out the details well over two months ago. As of today only one guest has booked out of 40. I think the cost has scared everyone off. My fiance and I are now thinking about just us and the kids having a simple destination wedding. Any suggestions on resorts who have smaller wedding packages???? I have to start all over again. My wedding is booked as of now for Iberostar Rose Hall Suites in Montego Bay.

    Misha Earle Photographer

    I am interested in booking Misha as well. The three hour package is within my budget, however I wanted photos before the ceremony, during the ceremony, dinner, and reception. I pretty much wanted photos of everything....Is that the norm or just the pics of the bride and groom typical????
  3. I am confirmed for April 13, 2013 at the Suites!!!!
  4. What are the options as far as location for the ceremonies on the beach? I know one location is near Aunt Ruby's restaurant? Is there another option? I have seen some reviews where water equipment, boats, etc in the background. I definitely do not want that location.
  5. Hi Ladies, I have seen the long list of all the 2012 Iberostar brides, but I don't seem to see any new reviews. Where are all the new reviews????????????????????????????

  7. My wedding is April 13, 2013 at the Suites. I wanted to do a welcome dinner on the night before the wedding. I wanted to do the Japanese restaurant. Are guest from the Suites able to go to restaurants at the Grand? I also wanted to do a cocktail hour after dinner. I am wondering should I pay for a cocktail hour or should we just go sit at a bar. My group will be about 15 to 20 people. I really don't see the point in paying for drinks when its an all inclusive resort..let me know what you all think. THANKS!!!!
  8. Kinsellak 1, My wedding date is April 13, 2013 which is also a Saturday, at the Suites. I am having a cocktail hour/reception with a DJ. I confirmed already with Nicole. I am assuming they have more that one DJ available.
  9. Courtney, My date is April 13, 2013 at the suites. I have been searching air/hotel rates for April 2012 just to get an idea of the rates, but the rates are extremely high. I was told by a travel agent that the rates are so high because we are so close to April. The rates for April 2013 will be released in May of this year. So let's cross our fingers. I am also worried about the rates for the actual wedding packages for 2013...We wont know that information until 2013.

  11. I thought there was a minimum of 30 people for the private reception, and I thought it was an option not mandatory.......
  12. I am planning the following events for my wedding day: Ceremony 5 to 5:30 pm Cocktail Hour 5:30 to 6:30 on the beach Dinner Calabash 6:30 to 8:30 My question is I would to do something after dinner with a DJ and drinks. Is it an option to do a cocktail hour at the lobby bar with a DJ after the dinner. I am thinking two hours 8:30 to 10:30. I will not have enough guest to do the private disco. Please let me know your thoughts as well as your wedding day schedule. Thanks.......

    Air and Hotel Packages

    Thanks everyone. I will check with a few travel agents and I guess I won't know anything for sure until the 2013 rates are actually published. I have been stalking this site for a few months, and I have my entire wedding planned in my mind from all the research I did on this site. I am so stuck on Iberostar but if the rates exceed 1000 to 1100 per person I definitely have to start over and chose another resort. SAD FACE......
  14. I am confirmed for the Suites on April 13, 2013. The airfare and hotel rates have not been published yet for 2013 so we have not paid for our air and hotel package. I started planning my wedding several months ago. I selected the suites and I checked random dates and the price for air and hotel packages varied between $1000 to $1100 per person. Now I am checking random dates for 2012 and the prices are outrageous anywhere from $1400 to $1600 to person. Did something change that I am not aware of? I really wanted to send out my save the dates, however I am certain if I should do so, because if the rates are that expensive when its time for us to book I wont be able to do the suites...what do you all think????
  15. I received my confirmation for April 13, 2013 at the Suites. I really wanted to send out the invites at least a year in advance to give my guest time to plan. The issue is airfare and hotel rates are not even published yet for 2013. I am wondering should I send out Save the Dates now and send out the actual invites once I have purchased our hotel and air package. What are your thoughts on this????
