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

Recommended Posts

I have a question for past brides who didn't have a private reception.  I have a group of 24 and we are having dinner at the Steakhouse on the Beach resort.  Our dinner will start at 7pm and we have requested a bonfire after.  What time should we start the bonfire? How long will it take for everyone to enjoy the dinner.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

The package prices are the same for 2012.  Only the reception prices changed at the Grand (and the bonfire and disco rental rates).  I didn't mean to freak everyone out!  If you were already planning to add on a premium bar, then this won't affect you too much.  But if you wanted to save some money and go with the standard bar, then you're out of luck since it's no longer an option.

If the rates increased like the Grand....I may actually have to plan my wedding somewhere else. I understand the rates will increase, but for the rates to almost double is absolutely insane.

Non-private dinners are 1.5 hours, so 7 - 8:30 pm.  I would plan to start the bonfire at 9, since the bonfire spot is directly in front of the Steakhouse.  Try to make sure that your guests don't leave in between :)  If you think they might, then just have the bonfire start at 8:30 or 8:45.

Thanks,

 

Yes, it was Tai Flora.  My bouquet was upgraded though, I paid an extra $50 to have the stargazer lilies.  A ripoff, but oh well :)  They also weren't top quality - some of the orchids looked a little sad and wilted, and some of the stems weren't secured in the foam center, so I kept losing the same few stems. Eventually I just let them go and made sure to keep the empty side of the bouquet against me. lol

We had the steel pans band at the ceremony.  It was so nice, it really added to the island feel.  We didn't request anything specific for them to play, except Canon in D for my walk down the isle, and Bob Marley's One Love when we walked back down the isle.  Otherwise, they just did whatever they wanted.  Honestly, I barely noticed, there's just so much going on and so much excitement, it's so hard to take it all in.  FWIW, they did stop playing RIGHT at the one hour mark.  We forgot to tip them. oops. That may have helped.

I'm doing exactly the same thing and Sylvia told me that the dinner had to start at 6:30 and the bonfire at 8:30. I was't sure if there was room for negotiation on the times but it sounded like a good schedule so I just went with it lol.

I received my confirmation for April 13, 2013 at the Suites. I really wanted to send out the invites at least a year in advance to give my guest time to plan. The issue is airfare and hotel rates are not even published yet for 2013. I am wondering should I send out Save the Dates now and send out the actual invites once I have purchased our hotel and air package. What are your thoughts on this????

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
