Does anyone know the procedure to having a welcome dinner at the Iberostar Suites? I couldn't find a recent post on it.  Do we tell Nicole in advance vis email and she will set it up or do we tell her when we arrive to Jamaica?  Also, does it cost extra to do a welcome dinner?  


Second ques.- For the a la carte restaurants, I wonder if I could just reserve it for my entire group or if it has to be done individually by guests.  


Thank you!!


Happy Planning!

I thought I would share this PM I had with PrincessJ with everyone in case you might have the same ques.  Since I am doing my ceremony off-site but will be having the cocktail and dinner 

reception at Iberostar Suites I was wondering about the flower decorations:



"For my reception I brought my own centrepieces and had the hotel set them up (bowls with artificial flowers and candles and sand). We brought our flowers back from the reception and set those up too"



Ques-I was wondering if you planned any excursions/day trips for your guests.  That's my next project.



"We planned a 1/2 day Catamaran with Dream Catamarans and it was perfect. We just booked our group when we got them and got 10% group dicsount, so I think it was $60 pp all in. It was 4 hours long and took us out on the beautiful boat with open bar and stopped once for snorkelling and then stopped at Jimmy Buffets to play on the water trampolines. I would recommend them for sure."

Did any of you past/recent brides plan any excursions for your bridal party and/or guests that was inexpensive? If so what did you do? My FI & are considering something, if it fits into our budget.

My wedding is July 13th. What is your location? I have had no response at all from Iberostar since I booked in January. I got frustrated and just booked off site. I feel like we made the right decision, it's more us than a beach wedding with other people around. Almarie answers my questions so quickly, it's great!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
