    That's a tough one because how would the bride and groom be able to tell which guests they can stay on property or be allowed to stay elsewhere. If I were a guest and I was given the option, I'd stay elsewhere for less and then just pay the $100. Now a days everyone's looking to save some $. So this is a tricky one.

As long as majority of your guest stay at an Iberostar property than you can have the wedding at the Iberostar without cancellation. The guest would just have to pay $100. Children under 12 will be $50.

      I wanted the parents and bridal party at an Iberostar property, but have no control if they choose not to. I don't mind now that I know the 90% is not really 90%... I refuse to not give flexibility if they find a cheaper hotel and decide to stay there. I won't advertise going elsewhere,but if guests decide to stay at another resort than I will be happy if they are comfortable with spending less. Less stress on them and on us! I doubt we will have a problem with the 60% staying at Iberostar.

              Hello Ladies,

               

              I have a question for those of you who are hiring a photographer or DJ to come on the suites property for your wedding: I am aware that we have to pay a $100 vendor fee however does anyone know do we have to pay a day pass fee of $100 also? Is the day pass so they can eat? Which I would like to be able to offer them a plate but gosh not at $100 pp!!

               

              I read from a past bride that she had to pay two fee's to have her DJ come on the resort and I am just freaking out because for one I did hire a private DJ because the resort DJ was getting bad reviews and now supposedly the resort has a new DJ which has been getting good reviews  but I will also be hiring a private photographer and if she brings an assistant then this is just blowing my budget big time!! I hope someone will be able to clarify this for me!!

               

              Thanks!

                Good question Delgadot. Any past/future Suites brides if you're using/used the new resort DJ please give us feedback. Was he great, did he get the crowd on the floor etc. Simply because I too would like to hire Kevan as our DJ but if the resort DJ is great, then I may reconsider and just save the $, and use him instead.

                 

                Also how much does it cost to use the resort DJ by the way, or is there no charge?

                  Hi all,

                   

                  I am looking to book a wedding next April at the Suites.  I emailed the WC about a week ago with no response :(.  How long did it take to hear back when trying to book a date?  Is there any way to speed this up?  I only ask because I am nervous the dates will all be booked!

                   

                  Thanks :)

                    On the information sent from Nicole, the DJ is $150 per hour nand 3 hours min if it is for Private Reception.  I think the feedback on the forum has definitely gotten better regarding the resort DJ.

                      I stayed at the Holiday Inn when we did a quick weekend trip to visit the IRHS and I will not do my wedding there, totally different atmosphere, my relatives complained at the beginning but now even the ones who complained the loudest are ready to go back to the IRHS. They thought it was worth every penny. You get what you pay for, the food at Holiday Inn is terrible, the bathrooms at their best suite had mold all over and non working shower. No one will regret spending the money once you get to Iberostar...I guarantee you.
