    Hey Ladies,
    Do you happen to have any pictures you can post on here or send to my email address at maggiepurslow@yahoo.com

    I am really trying to get an idea of how everything looks and is set up from your point of view rather than pictures that the resort send me (which have been very generic). Also, is there a nice view of the ocean from the steakhouse??

    Thanks for your help!
    Maggie

      Of course, I don't have any pictures since I haven't had my wedding... But I can tell you that the steakhouse restaurant it pretty much right off the beach, looking right out on the ocean.

        Hi Ladies!!! I'm coming out of hiding. LOL, thanks Myen! I got married on Friday, 6/5 and absolutely loved the resort.

        I was originally getting married in Riviera Maya at the Iberostar Paraiso Maya, but due to the hype of the swine flu we changed locations about a month before our wedding date. I was scrambling at the last minute trying to get things reorganized and never found the time to officially introduce myself.

        I realize that there aren't many Iberostar Rose Hall brides, so if any of you have any questions.... PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE. This site has been a tremendous help to me & it's my pleasure to return the favor.

        I'm not even going to kid myself... I will write a review, I just don't know when (I'm not as fast as the other brides). We just got back yesterday and I'm still in vacation mode. Again, if you have any questions in the meantime, I'm here.

          Forgive me as I play catch up....
          The beach was a concern of mine as well. I bought these beautiful 4 inch heels & I insisted on wearing them for my entire wedding!

          Nicole keep telling us that we had to get married on the beach because of the size of our group (65 people). I never wanted to get married on the beach... even when the wedding was in Mexico, the beach was not an option. I love the pictures, but didn't like the idea of sand blowing around and having my guests walk in the sand. So when we arrived at the resort, we made it a point to scout out an alternate location.

          We walked over to the lazy river island and we thought is was large enough. Nicole was hesitant about having the wedding there because they never had that location set-up for more than 30 guests. After begging & pleading, Nicole was willing to give it a shot. It turned out beautiful!!

          Here's a link with a few pics of the ceremony location (hope this works)...

            First off, CONGRATS on becoming a Mrs!! Second, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! You are my savior Your set-up turned out beautifully!! Funny enough, I just received a message from Nicole today that had pics of your set-up as their new wedding location.

            I can't begin to thank you enough for scoping out this location... I'm so excited that I now have the chance to wear my fabulous shoes for our ceremony :)

              I do have one question... Was the river closed to the hotel guests during the ceremony? Because I noticed that in one of the pics that Nicole sent me of the set-up earlier, you could see a couple guests floating along the river.

                Yes, there's a nice view of the ocean from the steakhouse. However, by the time we arrived for our reception, the sun already went down and it was pretty dark. We could only hear the waves.

                I'll go thru some more pics & try to post them shortly.

                  The river was not closed during the ceremony, but it doesn't hurt to ask Nicole if they can. There were a couple of people floating around, but everyone was very respectful and stayed off to the side. The pool crowd dies down around 5ish and the activities stop by 5:30pm. Also, the swim-up bar closes at 6pm. So, there's no need to worry about a huge crowd floating in the river during your ceremony.

                  People gathered on the main bridge & on their balconies to view our ceremony. It was cool. They added a little more 'celebrity' to the moment. :) They made us feel like stars! LOL

                    Briscoecrown, congrats on your recent wedding! I love your set up--it looks amazing. I am so happy to see pictures of real wedding at IRHS. It's nice to finally have some other brides to share their experiences. Where was your reception? What photographer did you use? Thanks again and congratulations!

                      Every Mon & Thurs the Suites has a beach BBQ in front of the Steakhouse. On Thursdays, they add the steel pan band. We hired them for our cocktail hour... well worth the money.

                      We had our welcome dinner at the Beach's Japanese restaurant. We had approx 58 people attend dinner and they were able to accommodate our group.
