Gail - Ugh, I swear you can't get a straight answer from that woman to save your life some days lol. Don't get me wrong, she's lovely and everything but I think she has trouble with the language barrier.

 

I did see your question on my review thread and replied to it as well. Ivory what? Sorry I'm slow this morning lol the caffeine hasn't hit me yet wink.gif

 

Oh, I just wanted to let you ladies know that I added some misc vacation/Iberostar pics on my most recent post of my review. Hopefully this will help you all!

Hmmm?!?!? Maybe she is being difficult? Like I said it took us months and $500 worth of phonecalls to mexico before she let us do this? But I swear I read it somewhere that they now do private receptions at a la carte restaurants for like $800 and $50 per person (i'll have to do some reaserch to see if I can find that again)... Ask her why you can't if you are williing to pay extra for it? You aren't saying you want it for free so what's the big deal - this is what I never understood with them! (This was the deciding factor for her manager Isla when I stated this point to her and Gabriela so we settled I would pay $1200 for the Brazilian)... Keep on her and if you must call down there and ask for a manager (that's what I did - just get a phone card first I learned the hard way and I could of flown down there for what I paid on my phone bill LOL)...

what do they charge to decorate that arch you were talking about?

I knew I wasn't hallucinating about the private a la carte receptions!!! Read this article:

Iberostar Weddings FAQ

it states:
Where will our wedding dinner be? Can we have a private reception?

You can choose from one of resort's A La Carte Restaurants (there will be other guests at the restaurants). If you want to have a private reception, you can rent a restaurant (1000 USD) plus a set menu (50 USD per person).


Another bargaining chip I used on them was I didn't send them any information or reserve my date (with credit card copy) until they garenteed this for me - just trying to help!

As per to your question…we have rent the Brazilian restaurant as a private event just once… (3 years ago) we are having now another one in May because we have a bride that want to have it. Please note that in all this cases the General Manger of the Hotel made a BIG exception. Beside the brides had to pay $ 1000 USD extra to rent it. Unfortunately the General Manager that we have in the hotel at the moment won’t allow to happening this again. I’m sorry! The only restaurant that we are allowed to offer as a private event is the Tropical Restaurant.

 

 

 

this is the response I got after 3 e mails to gabriella, this reply is from Reyna, which has never e mailed me until now-

lol! Sorry Gail, I know this is soooo frustrating for you but I had to laugh. I corresponded with Gabriela regarding my wedding via email exclusively. For some reason, Reyna sent me an email once which not only did not answer my question at all but she sent me information I already had and referred me to it even though the answer I was looking for was not in that document. I gave her a very snarky reply back and the next thing I knew Gabriela was back to emailing me. I'm not sure why this Reyna hops in on Gabriela's emails when she has no idea what's going on. I was so irritated when this happened to me. I feel for ya girl!! smile03.gif

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
