Have you tried calling them?

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

Not yet.  The last time I did an 11 minute phone call cost me $48 bucks so I'm trying to avoid that.  Plus, I prefer to have everything in writing so they can't deny later.

Yikes! Not cheap... they should really have a toll free number.


Q for all past brides out there: Has anyone had the cake with the champagne toast after the ceremony?? Just curious if it's too hot & if the cake held up.

I was thinking it would be nice to have our ceremony, champagne & cake (because they go so well together!!) and a steel drum band. Our dinner will be at 7 so also gives pple a bit of snack... plus i'm assuming there are plenty of other desserts at dinner!!

I see a lot of pictures of brides that got married at the Iberostar that aren't wearing a wristband. Does this resort not require them, or have the brides worked something out where they can remove theirs for the wedding day and get a new one afterwards? I just don't want a big colored band on my wrist in all the photos.

They allow you to remove the wrist band for the day and get a new one at the front desk

I purchased a calling card for $5.... it has been very helpful in the planning process. You can get them at gas stations

Hi Ceecie,

 

I wanted to comment on Godfrey Guy. We also had a few problems with him (nothing like you are going through though). I did notice that his responses definitely get snippy/attitude-y. I was told that the money was due the week before the wedding and that's when I paid. The problem we had was we put a down payment on specific flowers, only to be told his wholesalers did not have those flowers in bloom...a week before the wedding. After much irritation, tears, and freaking out...I decided I didn't care what the flowers looked like really. Anyways...he did an amazing job with my "backup" flowers and they were seriously more beautiful than I ever imagined. Point of the story I guess is that everything is going to be perfect no matter what happens. You might be freaking out right now, but it is so important to remember how amazing your wedding day will be regardless of everything! As long as you and your groom show up. wink.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.

Thanks for the tip.  I will definitely do that going forward.  In the meantime, the day I posted on here I also emailed the WC a follow-up email to every single email that has gone unanswered for weeks (4 in total) and guess what...she finally responded!  Persistance is key.  :)

Hi ladies! Pretty sure I promised some pics of the food from the Suites, so I'm finally here to do it! Pics are from my iphone, so not the best quality! :) Here are pics from Calabash. They look a little scary, but I will promise, everything is AMAZING!!! Not one person had a complaint. This was by far my favorite dining experience!!!

 

Smoked salmon appetizer:

Candied tenderloin steak. Our server told us from the beginning that we were welcome to order double portions. This is a double portion.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
