Iberostar Rose Hall Brides - Post all info/questions here!

Recommended Posts

Everyone's pictures look great. I got an email back from Nicole last night and thoght I would share in the hope that it could help someone.

 

GROUP DINNER
I would like to have a group dinner for everyone on Wednesday night at 7pm. Can we make a group reservation at the Hibachi restaurant? Do you recommend any other restaurant for that dinner? I will send the request to the Iberostar Beach since itâ€s on their property but you can choose the Mediterranean, Mexican and Gourmet Restaurant for the rehearsal dinner. Please let us know the amount of guests. Please find enclosed group menu.
 
WELCOME BAGS
We have welcome bags for the group
Can they be distributed at check-in? It can but sometimes the front desk get busy so might not remember to give to some guests upon arrival.
Or can they be delivered to each room (one of my bridesmaids will walk with the bellhop to distribute them).
Can you provide a list of each person's room number? Yes we can provide you with a rooming list
 
WEDDING ON THE BEACH
Will microphones be provided so our guests can hear us? Yes microphones and speakers will be provided
If no, what is the price for that?
We have chosen the music we want to be played at the wedding.
Do we need to have a DJ play the pre-selected music for us? If you have music for the ceremony, with the wedding package a DJ comes with the ceremony. For the reception the cost is $150 per hour.
Can we have someone from the hotel play the music for us? Yes
Should we bring a CD of the music or can it be played from an IPOD? CDs or ipod which ever works
 
Cocktail Hour
Can you please confirm that we receive a FREE cocktail/welcome reception? We do not offer free cocktail. Please find enclosed extra services charged.
If YES, I would like to have the cocktail reception in the Lobby Bar following the wedding (location to be confirmed upon our meeting prior to the wedding)
How would music work in this location? We have pre-selected our music for this well and will need it to be played from an IPOD (prefer the IPOD) or CD.
Reception
As stated above, we would like to hold the private reception at Aunt Ruby's and will gladly rent it out. We are bringing lots of decorations with us including paper lanterns.
Is wine/beer the only option for alcoholic drinks without paying for open bar?
Can your team hang the lanterns (power not required) for us or will TaiFlora have to do that? We could hang the lanterns
I will need all of my decorations back after the wedding (we are using them again for our reception at home), how can I make sure this happens? Can someone pick everything up the next morning from you? Yes we will collect the decorations and send them to your room.
Do you have a shallow box I can place sand in for my starfish table cards? No I donâ€t have a shallow box.
We have pre-selected music for the reception as well. I am fine with renting a sound system for this.
Same question as before, can we use an IPOD? OK
Is someone there to MC or will someone from my group have to do it The DJ can introduce the bridal party, announce the dances and cutting of the cake. But for an MC its best if someone from the group can do it, like a good friend that can crack a few jokes now n then to entertain the group.
 
VENDORS
As previously discussed, I will have a make-up artist come to the resort and leave after she finishes (she will not stay for the wedding).You stated that I will not have to pay a vendor fee as she is not staying for the wedding. Yes, once she leaves after, no fee.
What is the charge for my outside photographer to attend? $100 per person, photographer decides to bring assistant I think you should discuss prices together but its $100 pp
If she brings 2 other people with her, how is that price determined?
What if only one person stays overnight as a guest instead, will I be charged for her? If the photographer stays on property we will not charge a fee because she is already stating on property.
What will I be charged for the other 2 people?

 

Happy Planning!

Hey Mrs Smith-

 

Questions about Marcia-

 

How soon before the wedding did you hear from her?  Im so afraid, I booked her back in November but havent heard anything about down payments or anything.  I know this is normal for her, but how close to the date should I hear from her

No down payment, just touch base with her before you leave if you don't hear from her.  She contacted me about a week or 2 beforehand.

Thanks Breeze!

I see that you really enjoyed the Mango Walk Disco. Do you think that it would be too big to rent out for my first dance and to have some private time with our 34 guests for a few hours before it opens up to the public?

Hi Sunshine,

I heard back from Nicole and confirmed that yes the taxes are included in everything except the flowers.

I believe the wedding package and all the extra are priced to include the taxes. But if I'm wrong, or you hear elsewise from Nicole, please let me know so I can budget for the additional fees, as well.
