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

Recommended Posts


Thanks for posting about the Mediterranean restaurant helped a lot because now I see that if I wanted to get paper lanterns, chances of them hanging them are slim. The ceilings don't look like they can handle it. I'm going to email Nicole and ask her.

Hey ladies,

 

Just thought I would let you know I noticed today the Iberostar has a spring sale going on. I contacted my travel agent and was able to lock in the lower rate and save us $330. Whoo hoo!!! cheer2.gif So if anyone has a rate that is adjustable when hotel rates go down, I would check into it! It's also a good thing to share with anyone who hasn't booked yet....maybe it will be an incentive!

Hey Jules! Thank you so much! I really appreciate that. I will update my programs with that info! That sounds like a beautiful song for your walk down the isle!

Hi Tina,

 

Your planning sounds great.  I agree that our guest are paying a lot to come to the wedding so I understand wanting to make it nice for them.  I didn't even know you could do the dance floor on the beach.  That is great.  I am still opting for the music bar, I have a few older guests coming and need the AC....:)  I hope you have a planning thread listed, I would love to see the sites where you booked the catamaran cruise and got your OOT gifts.

Day 1- I'm having the welcome dinner by the pool w/appetizers, open bar and steel drum band.

Day 2- We are paying for all of our guest to do a catamaran cruise which includes drinks and snorkeling

Day 3- Rehearsal dinner

Wedding Day- DJ, dove release, cocktail hour w/appetizers and open bar, dinner, beach party with fire dancers, dance floor on the beach and lounge furniture (my grandma's need to sit lol)

 

Plus I'm doing the OOT bags, passport welcome books and program books by Rebecca.  Parasols, sashes, fans, runners and flowers.

 

To me all of this is the norm I suppose I just didn't expect the price to continue to add up lol....so naive! blush2.gif  Just so happy I had all of the BDW ladies to help me with this experience.  I would be so lost without all of you and your amazing ideas!

This is great...Thanks

1.  Do you have a large selection of gluten free food? (bride is celiac)
What normally do is to advised the chef and he will try to prepare some that is gluten free or if you would like to bring some food items like something that you like to eat on a daily basis that the hotel might not provide with you that would be fine .
 
2.  Cake- Is there a possiblity that we could have a gluten free layer on the cake? I (the bride) have celiac disease and therefore cannot have anything with gluten.  If needed, I could bring a gluten free cake mix from home that could be provided for the chefs.  Also, do your restaurants have gluten free options?
Yes you can bring a gluten free cake mix with you .we will advised that chef of your request and he will see what can be done or  if she has anything in mind just let us know and we will advised the chef.  
 
3.  Dinner-  I know your list does not provide a beach option for the reception but I have read that some other brides have done this.  Is this a possibility?  It seems that the Mediterranean restaurant is our only option for a private dinner and we really, really wanted something outside.  Have you ever done a dinner on the lobby terrace or by the pool? I expect to have about 30 people.  We are willing to pay for extra seats or whatever we have to do to have the private reception.  It is one of the reasons we chose your resort and expected many more guests to be coming. Now we are very, very upset that we cannot have a private reception the way we want.  Is it possible if we paid the extra that we could have it at Aunt Ruby's
what you can do is have dinner at the Mediterranean or Steakhouse and then have a cocktail party after the dinner outside on the beach or on the lazy river island that we have . We donâ€t do dinner on the beach only cocktails.
  
4.  Hair/Make- Up.  Do the hair and make-up prices include a trial run? If not, how much would this cost? 
The hair and makeup donâ€t include trial .Trial make up $50.0uds ,hair up do $ 70.00uds
 
5.  Do you offer steaming/pressing of the wedding dress?  Yes we do
 
6.  Excursions- Do you have a particular group you recommend for booking excursions (catamarans/deep sea fishing)? Jamaica tours here is their contact information
If you would like to get more information about the tours available in the area, you can visit their web page: http://www.jamaicatoursltd.com


 
7.  We would really like to have our dance on the beach. Can we pay the dj and bar to set up there? We are also hoping to have the beach bonfire for the rehearsal night. Yes this can be done please see enclosed attachment Service with Extra charges

Does anyone know if children are allowed in the music bar?  I wanted to have the speeches and dances there after the reception dinner, and want to make sure that kids are allowed.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
