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

Recommended Posts

Tipping is also something I am wondering about. I have no idea how much to tip, but the tipping bill is going to add up for sure. With photographer, videographer, make up artist, Nicole, Tropical Weddings Jamaica, musicians, and more I don't want to go broke but really want to leave them a good tip. Any other past brides that can comment on this?

I just got the pictures back from my Pin-up girl themed bachelorette party if you guys would like to check them out.  My friends booked a photographer, antique cars and the works. It was amazing!

 

 

I am not sure if I have posted this in the right forum but I just wanted to share some pics from my really, really amazing party!

My make-up artist was so awesome that I decided to take her to Iberostar with me. She is actually moving to the Cayman Islands next week and it only cost me a couple hundred dollars to fly her over.

Pastor--We didn't tip the pastor because it was included in the package. Didn't think about that one actually

DJ--We rented the Mango Walk Club for 2 hours that included the DJ--No tip either.

Nicole & Tiffany--we tipped $100 to split between them. I wish we could have tipped more, but we were going broke.
We also tipped the restaurant staff for our welcome dinner and the wedding dinner. Our parents and some guests got money together and tipped the wait staff bc they such as amazing job!

Welcome Dinner--$40

Wedding Dinner--$80

However, be careful if you tip the staff. we gave all the money to the head waiter and asked him to distribute the tip evenly. We're not entirely sure if they distributed the money, but we hope so!

 

Bring a lot of singles to tip randomly. You can also get change or singles at the front desk. That really helped out to break some of our bigger bills.

Mrsrice - Congratulations on your wedding!!  Thank you so much for sharing this information.  It was so incredibly helpful!!  Did you send Nicole a break down of your "wants" for the wedding and days surrounding the wedding before she actually sent you her wedding detail sheet?  I feel like I should give her a general timeline with places/wants/etc. sooner than later, but I also know that she gets so many emails that it would be more to ease my own mind than anything else.  Any suggestions?

Sorry I didn't have time to post before I left for my wedding on June 13, 2011 but I'm home now.... my review may take me weeks to post b/c I returned to a busy schedule but I just wanted to say short and sweet that Nicole and Tiffany are AMAZING. I'm still a newbie and I don't have a planning thread or many pics up online but I'm certain from what I've read so far that many of you are as detailed as I am with planning. You've probably sent dozens of e-mails and revised your last minute wedding details sheet a few times and you will probably be adding things all the way up until the last minute day before your wedding. I want to ease your worries and tell you that the last wedding details sheet and maybe a photo or two is all you really need. Nicole is very organized and will send a letter to your room to confirm your meeting with her upon your arrival. She has your wedding details and confirms your choices on the spot. She will even give you a tour to select your wedding ceremony location, cocktail reception, dinner etc. She is very patient and friendly. Her assistant Tiffany is sweet and will go over the wedding rehearsal with you and your bridal party. She will accommodate most wishes on the spot (i.e. things like who walks down the aisle first, groomsmen w/ bridesmaids etc. . The rehearsal is very informal just a basic walk through, no music no minister..but no worries you don't need it. Be sure to show them pics of any decor you want set or demonstrate and you will be fine. Tiffany stayed with us the entire night..my ceremony was at the lazy river, champagne and steel pan band on balcony terrace, dinner @ Gourmet and dancing @ music bar. Tiffany and Nicole escorted the guest to each location..it flowed smoothly and I didn't have to worry about a thing.

 

My wedding was amazing despite a few bumps that I would say take heed to....sorry I don't remember names.

 

1) Salon, not all stylist are created equal. My bridesmaids hair turned out awesome. Mine was a tragedy that left me in tears. The salon manager convinced me to go with another stylist (my bridesmaids) and my hair turned out almost perfect. I tweaked it a bit in my room until it was perfect.

2) Not all DJ's are created equal. The DJ @ the disco is awesome. The DJ I was given sucked!!!!! badly. My brother stepped in to co-DJ which helped.

 

Lastly. Iberostar is Fabulous. No worries mon! Enjoy the time you have with family and friends...the wedding day flies by.

 

Feel free to ask me any q's.

 

Happy Planning

What type of food does Calabash have?

1. Calabash

2. Buffet

3. Aunt Ruby's

4. Mediterranean

 

I didn't make it to the Mexican so I can speak on that.

I thought 72 was for the square tables...I could be wrong though?
