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

Recommended Posts

good morning, fellow IBRH brides...

 

i'm writing this morning to say...be sure to READ your photographer's contracts including the fine print.

 

here's the story...i've become fast friends with a photographer who happens to live part-time in the USA and part-time in jamaica.  well, during one of her recent trips to jamaica, she was flipping through a magazine and discovered an ad featuring one of my bridal shots.  while i'm incredibly humbled by the thought that i'm featured in an international magazine, i wasn't alerted by my wedding photographer that this would happen and am feeling quite peeved that my image was used without my knowledge.  it feels as if the photographer didn't even think i'd ever see the ad...because what are the chances that my friend would?  hmmm...  stupid.gif

OMG ladies........I am totally freaking out hissyfit.gif

 

I leave for my wedding on Monday the 26th.  I have done everything by the book and now everything is exploding...........

 

So first I loose communication with Nicole at the Suites.  It seems she was getting my emails but I was getting nothing back.  Finally I did get in touch through my travel agent who emails, and I get through on the phone.   All this to find out a second problem............  I FedEx my paper work to Jamaica 6 weeks ago and Nicole doesn't have them!!  FedEx delivered them to the Beach instead of the Suites and they signed for them and now they are LOST!  No one knows where they are............  We have been told just to bring a new set and we can still get married......BUT all we can think about is IDENTITY THEFT!!!!

 

In the middle of this on Friday Godfrey Guy the florist I hired, has sent an email asking for more money?!  Some story about the flower shop changing their policy and now they want the money early - strangely they want $250 US dollars only??!!  After some debate and a discussion with Nicole and FH I say no, we will pay as per the contract agreement.  this results in a text message that asks why I am being so difficult and that all the "Iberostar Brides are so hard to deal with when there is a slight change".  Now he refuses to meet with me to discuss the flowers and will just drop off what he thinks I want and pick up his money from Nicole later!!!  REALLY?!

 

To add fuel to this debacle is Air Canada's strike/work to rule (or call in sick) campaign..................

 

Who said destination wedding were easier and stress free?

 

Thanks for listening.

Is anyone else having trouble reaching the WCs at the Suites?  I must have sent them like 3 emails in the last 3 weeks and none have been responded to.  I get "island time" and all that but my wedding is almost 3 months away and I need assistance with band bookings and stuff.  What can I do to get their attention?  And when do they start giving you TOP priority?  When you're 1-2 months away?

 

So frustrating....I really hope this is worth it.

I am so sorry you are going through all of this at the zero hour, Ceecie.  Your story about your paperwork being lost is EXACTLY why FI and I changed our minds and have decided to (secretly) wed stateside before we go to Jamaica for the "real ceremony".  We are scared to DEATH of identity theft.  How do you even begin to follow-up/resolve this?  And why is it suddenly so easy to just bring another copy of your paperwork and still get married?  Don't they specifically say they need a month to submit your paperwork?  If I were you, I would go to the courthouse in your hometown and get married there before you go because the next thing you know, Iberostar will say they lost your paperwork again and are not officially married.


 

Good luck!

    • 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.
