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

Recommended Posts

I hadn't thought much about the night before but I wanted everyone to do something special together the morning of like a jeep safari! But Brett wants to not see me until I walk down the aisle. I just feel like our guest will only be there 3 nights so y spend the greater part of one day divided? Oh well, this looks like another decision of his I will give in to. No biggie....it will probably be more exciting that way too. So on the night before the wedding Brett will switch rooms with my cousin who will be rooming by herself the other nights. That way he can hang with his boys and come and go as he pleases.

i plan to sleep separately before the big day...my fiance and i are staying at the grande while our guests are booked at the beach so i'll likely stay in my daughters' room the night before and get ready with them on the BIG DAY!!!  less than 115 days!!!  woo hoo!!!  woot.gif  R~

Past brides or anyone who might know the answer,

Wondering about getting a suite for the day of for the bridesmaids and myself to get ready. Does anyone know if just having the room for a few hours would mean I would have to pay for the whole night? I would like a place for all the girls to get ready but if I have to pay for a whole night, I might just have it be our suite and just clean it up so we can enjoy it like it was new :-)

 

Also wondering if anyone has a good checklist they could share with me. I am about to send my SD's but looking for what I'm supposed to be working on next.

 

Thanks everyone and happy planning!

Jenni

iberostar brides...did u guys see the comments i posted about the starfish passing?

 

what does everyone think about instituting this for iberostar rosehall brides???

 

i'm on a starfish passing schedule right now..BUT...if we decide to coordinate one here...i'd be happy to participate...here's what i was thinking...some of us are marrying at the beach..some at the suites and others at the grande...

 

why don't those brides who are marrying at each respective resort participate?  we could use the starfish as our 'something borrowed' and then leave it with the WC for the next scheduled bride...i bet it could work..if you're at the beach, leave it there..the suites, leave it there..so on and so forth...of course, you'd have to know 'whose next'...we can't just leave the starfish for ANYBODY cuz they might not return it to the WC for the next bride...

 

i'm eager to hear ya'lls thoughts on this?  my big day isn't until october so if i 'coordinate' it it won't happen until then..however, if there's someone with a wedding date sooner who might already have a starfish for their bouquet..maybe we could start it earlier...

 

please let me know how ya'll feel about this...

 

can't wait to hear from my fellow iberostar rosehall brides!!!

I love this idea of the Starfish. Very cute and brings us all together! Maybe we should start a forum specifically for this?

And Include:

Name: Jenni

Date: 4.27.12

Resort: Beach

Then the next bride will know where to pick it up etc. But if we leave it with the WC maybe we could just request it from her....?

Great idea

Jenni

All this talk of taking cash for DJ and photographer is freaking me out.  Just to make sure, there are bank machines (mastercard) at the resort, right?  I'd much rather take money out the day of, and pay some interest and fees, rather than carry thousands of dollars around for a week.

Are you having them there the whole time from getting dressed until reception? Was their price decent?

I wonder if Marcia is good on videography? Have you heard...but Sungold does have RG on their preferred videographers...

I love the Starfish idea too!!

 

Also, is anyone using Godfrey for flowers/decorations? I e-mailed him yesterday and I'm pretty sure he called me at least 10 times within a 5 hour period and would not leave me alone. It was quite annoying seeing as how my wedding is almost a year away. He also told me he has to order all of his flowers from overseas which surprised me seeing as how Jamaica is tropical and you'd think they'd have plenty of flowers on the island?? Also, the prices he quoted me for bouquets and centerpieces really didn't seem that much cheaper than the hotel's prices through Tai Floral.

 

Any input is greatly appreciated!

    • 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!!
