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

Recommended Posts

We're planning for those exact days too - I think that should be sufficient as you can meet with the WC the Fri or Sat to make any last arrangements/changes.

all of my guests are staying at the resort but in the wedding package/contract it stated that if anyone off property was going to attend or even if anyone stayed at the beach as I am getting married at the suites they would have to pay a fee.  When doing my shopping around for locations this seemed to be the practice at all the all-inclusives that I looked into.

I think this is too much since I am already paying for my guests to attend the wedding. I have family in Jamaica who do not need to stay at the resort but asking them to pay $100 to attend the wedding is ridiculous. Input anyone?

@clonedtwice. 


 

I am really glad to hear that it turned out great!  I have been debating between this or hiring digipix to videotape since they seem to be the most resonable.

I was debating whether or not to hire a professional videographer but I thought it would be too cheesy so I stuck to the homemade video and luckily it turned out great.

Just a question for all Past and future brides... when it comes to tipping.. do you plan on, or did you.. tip the wedding coordinator and your photographer? We chose a photographer that owns her own company, but she is still working hard ( i hope) hahah so i am confused on whether or not to tip these people, and if so.. how much should we tip? Obviously the minister and bar staff etc.. DJ and what not are no brainers... but i am a bit torn on the WC and photographer.. so any insight would be very helpful!! Thanks ladies!

With regard to the question about arrival.  It was my understanding that you had to be there 2 business days before the wedding to legally get married in Jamaica.  In other words, for a Saturday wedding, such as mine, the bride and groom would need to be in Jamaica on Wednesday at the latest.  I would then think that a Monday wedding you would need to be there Thursday (maybe even Wednesday).  Is that not right?  

 

Happy planning!

I got a confirmation from our travel agent and the WC's that it's just 2 days, period. We arrive Friday morning and get married Sunday evening and they said that was fine.

Courtney, just reading your response re: timing and I realized I wasn't specific enough in my answer to Erin2100... (so thank you!)

 

@Erin2100 - I'm not sure where you're from, but Iberostar requests 3 days in advance, and for Canadians such as myself, we need to be in Jamaica for 24hrs (any day, not limited to M-F). Sorry if I caused any confusion!

That's fine, we arrived on Sunday afternoon and got married on Wednesday. They just want to make sure you have time to meet with them AND do your rehearsal. Just make sure you don't book any all day excursions before the wedding so you can get all that done.

If they don't have any questions or issues with the final details they won't email. Don't worry, they read everything you send, they're just SWAMPED with weddings every day right now and tend to only reply to direct questions. When I arrived they reviewed every one of my requests with me in person anyway.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
