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

Recommended Posts



I am very surprised to find out we can only dance/party until 10:30.  I wish I had seen this before I booked this place... a lot of my family will not like the disco but love to dance and they were looking forward to this part of the wedding.  I guess it is, what it is at this point.

 

Is your dj just packing up and moving outside then after the restaurant? Will you have to give him take down/ set up time? I had also planned to do the dancefloor on the beach but I dont know if it's worth it for just an hour or two.

Ceremony on the beach including sand ceremony, dove release and toast

Cocktail on the beach full menu and open bar

Dinner reception at the Calabash including open bar, first dance and speeches, 630-8pm- private rental w/dj

Beach party from 8-1030pm with dj and fire dancers etc.  I may try to convince Nicole to let us party until 11pm.  

 

If we are not exhausted by than we may continue to party at the disco for the remainder of the night :)

It doesn't make sense at all! If only we could have some answers from Nicole...

Hey Starrysim,

 

They kicked us out just after 11pm. I am sure if you talked to Nicole when you get there maybe if you pay a little extra maybe the might let you have until 12?

Bridetwobe,

 

I would try emailing Rashel again. Everytime I've emailed her I've heard back within a few hours, and sometimes within minutes. Maybe she missed it. I booked her for my wedding also. :)

I did see your first answer, but there just weren't many others :) 

We're doing a beach party for our welcome party - planning on bonfire and appetizers/ drinks on the beach. I'm not even planning on cocktails between the ceremony and reception - at my cousin's DW everyone just took that time to freshen up and change, and some people even went to the pool and stuff (it was 1:30 ceremony and 6 or 7 pm reception).  I think for our wedding, I'll just leave that to be free time for the guests - they can entertain themselves I'm sure, and some people will want to change clothes anyway

 

Here's my plan so far:

 

Monday welcome party:

Bonfire, open bar and appetizers on the beach.  I will only pay for 1 hour.  If people want drinks after that, I'm sure they can find their own, or waiters might be walking by anyway.

 

Wednesday - wedding day:

- Ceremony on the terrace ~ 3-3:30 pm

- then cake and champagne immediately after ceremony, for ~30 min.  Maybe steel pans band during this time, if budget allows (which I don't think it does. lol)

- free time for guests until reception. Wedding party to take pictures until sunset

- dinner & reception 6:30-10 (hopefully private at Calabash, but will depend on numbers), with DJ and dancing. Includes speeches, first dance, bouquet toss.  No cake, because we're doing the cake right after the ceremony. I haven't decided on open bar yet.  Does anyone know if there's a bar very close to Calabash?

 

So, it definitely looks like the reception will be too short. I need to ask Nicole if we can stay later.  I don't want to move to the Disco - for one, it won't be private, and two, when we tried to do this at my cousin's wedding, the crowd just split up and the night fizzled out.

I'll ask her, and I'll report back - but I'm not promising to do it SOON :)

I am also waiting to hear on this. I will also post if I hear. I agree, once everyone goes to the disco, the parents will probably go to bed and others will split up. But who knows, maybe the party will continue.

Lizk,

  you defintely need to look into another travel agent. I'm getting married the end of October of this year and we booked it last June AND we were able to lock in 2010 rates!  We just had to wait for the airfare to post this past February.  DO some research and check out other travel agents!

Good luck!

I just don't feel like 6 months is enough time to send out invites and have everyone book rooms. How long beforehand did yo ladies send out invitations?? Otherwise I'd have to send out invites that say  something like...Rates will be available in July, contact my TA for more information. Did everyone include the prices and whatnot in your invites or tell everyone that info later? I feel like i'm getting screwed on time because my wedding is in January, right at the beginning of 2012.

 

I already have a wedding package and date booked and my deposit down for our private beach wedding through TWJ so i'm not worried anymore about the coordinators lack of coordination at Iberostar but I was hoping we could book our rooms soon :( I just wanted to be able to give my guests as early of notice as possible so they'll have more time to plan and save money.

I need to know this too!  I am wearing sandals for reception but I do not want to wear them through the sand!

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
