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

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies! Just finished reading all 232 pages in this thread...finally!!! Getting married at the Suites on June 21st, 2011!! Can't wait!!

 

We have 51 people booked for our wedding! I've decided on Calabash for a private reception. I initially wanted to have the reception at Aunt Ruby's but after reading a lot of the reviews I don't want my guests to be uncomfortable in the heat. Now trying to decide on a location for the rehearsal/welcome dinner.

 

I have had no luck getting in touch with Tai Flora and so recently I've been getting in touch with other florists.

 

Anyway, this thread has been a lifesaver! So many of my questions have been answered!!

I agree with everyone, beautiful pictures Rosemarie!  I have a question about your reception...  It looks like it is in Calabash.  I was wondering about your centerpieces.  Just wondering how what you got compares to what comes included in the private reception.  I haven't really thought about the reception yet, and liked your table set-up and centerpieces.

My pics are up on marcia roberts site http://www.jamaicanphotography.com/  rosemarie and keshawn - Iberostar just in case anyone wanted to see more of what calabash setup was like!


Thanks for the heads up!  We're about to book Marcia as well, and planning on renting out Calabash.  You looked gorgeous, and your wedding was beautiful!  I'm also wondering if your centerpieces were the standard in the package for $58, or if they were extra (I'm guessing extra, lol).  Did you use Tai Flora?  Also, was your bouquet standard as included in the package, or extra charge?  Thanks so much for letting us have a peek.

Hi Starrysim,

 

I wish my centerpieces were that price! lol. and we did use Tai flora I broke the bank with flowers. it was the only thing i was going to do for decoration and i didn't do oots bags or anything so i spent the money there. each centerpiece was 100 dollars!!eek.gif i had seven of them. My bouquet was a extra 100 dollars. I also rented the table cloths from tai as well which like 25 dollars each. As well i had mother of bride/mother in law /grandmother wrist corsages and two centerpieces for my head table. a few other small extras and the bill came to 1700 dollars. but i was SUPER happy with the outcome and I am still really happy with the way it turned out. they were pretty accomidating if you did have a budget at first i said 2500 but then wanted to cut it down so they brought down the price on the centerpieces and table cloths.

 

I will say though they were super bad to work with as they never got back to me for weeks on end. But i have heard calling them is the way to go!

Hi Daisymable and IslandBride201x,


I answered above the question for starrysim as i saw her questions first. But yes i did use calabash and these centerpieces were WAY extra! lol i put the pricing above. I used Taiflora and i had lilies I am not sure what type in the bouquet. I just sent them a picture  of  what i like for my bouquet and the copied it exactly. i was very happy with the outcome

MrsJones, Congratulations! You looked beautiful and so did everything else! I am so glad I booked Marcia as well, your pictures show how good of a job she does and you both looked so relaxed in your pictures (instead of staged).

    • 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!!
