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

Recommended Posts

Anyone getting married at the Iberostar Rose Hall? Our wedding date is in May 2010 (still plenty of time time plan!) but I haven't come across much threads for this resort. I see lots of Riu's, etc. but not very many Iberostars sad.gif

 

I'd love to see any actual wedding pics from this resort - it's become impossible to find any! I've tried tripadvisor, googling, etc. and still no luck. The wedding coordinator has been very helpful in providing as much detail as possible, but it would be nice to get some feedback (and visual references!) from past/present/future brides from this resort!

 

The search continues.....!

No your right, there is not alot of information or pictures for the Iberostar of Rose Hall. I plan to get married there in July of 2009 and the only good pics I seen were on tripadvisor also. The coordinator send me pics of the ceremony locations but thats it. My family is jamaican and my dad went there for x-mas and new years and he told me the resort is very nice and he have really good taste. He will also bring picture for me when he gets back so I will for sure post them when I get them. When I read your post i was glad that somebody feels the same way I feel.smile36.gif

Thanks Tashi! It's nice to finally hear from someone planning at the same resort! I am definitely going to book here, we're just getting our paperwork together. I remember driving past it when I was on vacation last year at the Riu Ocho Rios and it's gorgeous. But the main reason why I am very interested in Iberostar Rose Hall is because they only do one wedding a day. It makes it more personal and Loreto (the wedding coordinator) will only be focused on your day :)

 

Loreto has been helpful at passing over details - so far she (or he?) has sent me bouquet options, locations, menus, price lists for extras. I'm still new to this forum so I have yet to learn how to post attachments. You can also do a search of the resort on Welcome to Flickr - Photo Sharing and there are lots of pics there as well.

 

If I get more info, I will post here for sure!

I'm getting married there May 2009! We just decided after 10 years together to FINALLY tie the knot so I'm not wasting any time! I just notified the resort today that I wanted to have my wedding there so I'm sure I will be relying on you ladies for lots of information in the coming months!

We're planning for May 25 or 26th of 2010. I've been in contact with Loreto? I guess they work together? I'm a little concerned though because I've emailed more questions to the wedding coordinator over a week ago and I haven't heard back. Maybe I need to get used to island time?

As for centerpieces, I think they only supply the head table centerpiece (standard tropical flowers)...as for the other tables, I'm undecided, but will likely be something simple as I'm not sure yet if I should bring stuff with me or let the resort handle it. So many things to think about!!

Congrats! Hopefully you'll be able to tell us all about it when you finally tie the knot! I will keep posting here when I get any interesting details from the coordinator. Sounds like you're the first in this thread to get married at this resort. And don't worry hun, I've been together with my finally-fiance for almost 9 years...it'll be 10 years officially when we finally get married :)

OOh Yes they are on Island time down there so they will respond but not right away. I have a travel agent thats helping me a whole lot she got me great deals for my guest if your interested let me know. She works out of miami and she's Jamaican so she knows how to negotiate with them.

 

As far as the center pieces, the coordinator told me we have to get our own center pieces but they will set everything up for us. I was thinking of just geting glass bowls with water and puting 1 pretty pink flower in it with clear rocks at the bottom. I know someone that lives 5 minutes from the resort so I was planning to ship it to them

Hi Guys! I was thinking about May 2010 at Rose Hall also (don't worry I'm thinking May 1st or 8th.) I emailed the WC and hadn't heard back yet and was starting get nervous. Maybe I should have a travel agent contact them instead?

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
