We had an absolutely amazing time the entire 10 days we were there. Do no worry about a thing! Silvia will take care of everything for you once you are there. She is really sweet and helpful!

They only do one bonfire a night per group.  I had asked Nicole about having a bonfire/beach party and she had to check with the Bride that was getting married that day to make sure she didnt want to have it.

Hi ladies, question for all the past/current Beach brides - were you or are you getting a free upgrade to a room at the Suites or Grand? I ask because I've read several posts by other brides about free upgrades (negotiated BEFORE departure, not at the time of check-in) as well as other "incentives" or perks such as a free cocktail hour, etc.  Upon asking the resort, they have responded that they DO NOT offer such incentives. So... before I follow up again, just wanted to check with fellow brides, I would love a free upgrade if it's typically offered :)

 

Thank you!

We are getting upgraded one room category. This was an offer from our tour operator negotiated by our travel agent. Basically every tour op has an allotment of rooms at the resort and the more of their rooms you fill with gueststhe more rewards they offer you, ie. with more than 10 rooms booked we got our upgrade, with more than 20 rooms we might get a free excursion, etc. From what I've heard from previous brides I know if you are booking independantly rather than with a tour operator like sunquest, etc. then you are in a better position to negotiate with the hotel themselves. It's easy for them to say no in an email, when you arrive to check in they know exactly how many empty rooms they have to offer the pretty little bride standing infront of them ;)

I'm getting married at the IRHB on Nov 6th but I'm planning on having the Bonfire Party as my Welcome Party the night before. I've mentioned it in every email to the WC and said over and over again that I don't want to have any problems so I hope the bride on that day doesn't change her mind since I've already since out invitations to the event. I'll be realy sad! I have talked to them about the back-up plan in case of rain and they said I would get moved to one of the restaurants.

Hi My name is Jenna Robbie and I'm getting married at the Suites on April 12,2012. I have some questions regarding booking vendors ect. How long in advance did previous brides give to book everything? Also what photographer would you recomend? and for hair and makeup did any previous brides use the hotel for that or did you bring in other vendors. I'm in the beginning stages of planning and need advice thanks for your input!

Hi Jenna,

Welcome! So for vendors, I haven't started on flowers yet and think I still have time, some of the brides have already reached out to Tai flora, which is the florist that the Iberostar works with and have experienced some difficulty with communication but sounds like that may be back on track. Otherwise, the restaurant and other resort details you will confirm with the resort much closer to the date. Have you secured the date with the resort? For a photographer, there are several local photographers (Misha Earle, Digipix, Sungold, Dwane Watkins, to name a few), google them and reach out to them for pricing and availability. I put together a spreadsheet comparing cost/packages/quality of work and am bringing my own so you always have that option if there's a photographer who's work you love and is local to you. 

As far as other vendors go, if you want to book a band, dj, etc... you can book through the resort and I believe you can book closer to the date as well. If you' re interested in other vendors, you should probably start your search now so you can book who you want :) The resort also offers hair/makeup but again you can book your own. For all vendors not booked (offered) through the resort wedding packages there will be vendor fees, you'll need to check with the WC for $amounts.

Hopefully that helps! In short, I don't think it's too soon, nor do I think you're too late :)

Hmm... that's strange, how would you get moved into a restaurant if it rains that day? I would think there would be restaurant bookings, wedding, rehearsal dinner or other welcome party already booked.
