    I am a June 2012 bride as well!  I contacted a travel agent right away to help narrow down locations and to make sure Jamaica was the place we really wanted.  Well after talking with her for a bit my fiancee and I decided on the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites.  My travel agent through beach bum vacations suggested we contact the resort now to request our date.  She said that since they only do one wedding a day it is good to get your date early.  We also had our heart set on June 15, 2012 so if you have a specific date and are sure Iberostar Rose Hall Suites is what you want then I say go ahead and contact them.  They confirmed my wedding date in about a week.  If you are more flexible about a date you could wait but if you know why not do it now :)

    Thanks in advance for any info you can provide and I'm so excited to get planning!

      Yay I am so happy to finally see 2012 brides on here!! I agree with burnison09 if you know your date book it ASAP because of the resort's policy of one wedding per day you don't want to risk loosing the date you want:) I look forward to sharing ideas and planning together!!:)

        I'm getting married 12-3-11 at the Grand...they offered us great group rates and incentives for booking certain # of rooms. My friend that's getting married in Cancun refered them to me, I highly suggest you all hit them up for rates. Let me know if you would like my TA's e-mail address.

          The glasses are glass flutes, standard champagne glasses, picture below.



          This is a random question - Does anyone know if they provide GLASS champagne glasses for the toast after the ceremony, or plastic ones? I sure hope it's glass.  We're planning to do the ceremony on the terrace, if that makes a difference.

            I'm glad to see another 2012 bride too! And our dates are pretty close.... about a month apart! How exciting!  Have you planned much else or just picked IRHS?

                  I sent out my invitations in October and we're now 35ppl booked :) I got my dress and bridesmaid dresses. The groomsmen's outfits and groom's suit will be ordered this week. We got our bands last week :) We had a NYE stag and doe and it went great!!!! Our photographer is booked so we just need to get some of the wedding details sorted out and we should be good to go. I can't wait!!!

                    Is anyone bringing stuff for their own centre pieces or are you leaving it up to tai flora and resort to create this for you?!

                      Hey Beetee33, I am having about 16-18 people so we are getting married at the Gazebo. I really wanted to go to the Steakhouse for our reception but, I hear there isn't AC and May will be pretty hot. I hear the Nicole will finalize our wedding a few months before the date. So, I am hoping to hear from her by Feb/March. I am very excited and looking forward to finalize:) I am going to send my invites out in 2 weeks and I am going to complete my wedding registry with fiance by next week. Have you registered yet? What' location are you selecting to get married in?
