      I'll be at the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach Nov 11 - 18, 2011 and our wedding is booked for the 14th :)

       


      Congrats!  Our group will be split between the Suites and Beach at about the same time - I might just come and check out your wedding 2 days before mine :)

      We'd love to do this as well.  We're thinking of booking 2 weeks at the Suites, and hoping to get upgraded to the Grand after the wedding.  If not, we will try to pay the difference to get transferred. Our actual honeymoon will be shorter though - we plan to arrive a few days before everyone else (to get last minute preparations done and learn our way around the resort, and also to celebrate our 10th anniversary there on the 11th), and stay just a few days after.

Do you think if we stayed at the Grand, we'd still run into our friends and family a lot? So far our other choose is Couples Swept Away in Negril, but i'm scared that we'll get there and not like it as much as the Iberostar. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

      Those of you who are switching to another resort for your honeymoon - how are you dealing with the transfer?  Are you flying back?  AFAIK, it's hard to do two one-way trips to and from different resorts.  I'd love to hear how everyone is doing this part.

I just don't feel like 6 months is enough time to send out invites and have everyone book rooms. How long beforehand did yo ladies send out invitations?? Otherwise I'd have to send out invites that say  something like...Rates will be available in July, contact my TA for more information. Did everyone include the prices and whatnot in your invites or tell everyone that info later? I feel like i'm getting screwed on time because my wedding is in January, right at the beginning of 2012.

       

      I already have a wedding package and date booked and my deposit down for our private beach wedding through TWJ so i'm not worried anymore about the coordinators lack of coordination at Iberostar but I was hoping we could book our rooms soon :( I just wanted to be able to give my guests as early of notice as possible so they'll have more time to plan and save money.

It is worth it to wait too! Prices DROP the closer it gets so you want to offer your guests the best prices. Everyone booked the trip in Oct/Nov 2010 and our wedding was in Feb 2011

      Hope this helps!


      November rates didn't start to come out until the end of February, but we still sent out our STD's in January.  No one in our group wants to book this early anyway - prices are so high right now, I'm sure they will go down over the summer.  As long as we're booked about 4 months before, I'm not worried.  I've been watching prices since summer, so I roughly know what's reasonable closer to the date.

      Congrats!  I was also stalking this forum a few months before we actually got engaged (9 years together :).  When we got engaged, I knew exactly what I wanted, and in 2 weeks I had the date confirmed, and within one month we had STD's sent out.  Good luck getting your date, and make sure to put it into your signature when you have it

          eholt have you been in contact with the florist?  Gosh, I can't seem to get anyone to answer their email.  Wedding in 8 weeks and no communication stinks!    I may prepare our papers this weekend for the marriage license.

            Tina,

            I emailed Tai Flora once to inquire about a bouquet I was interested in and the price they quoted was so outrageous, I went with real touch and haven't looked back.  Nicole told me by email that I can use the credit from my bouquet towards corsages and boutnierres for family.  I am not doing table arrangments since my party is so small.  So basically, I don't feel like I need them for anything.  When you said 8 weeks, it was like something knocked me upside the head! I feel like I'm all ready to go but I also have that feeling like I'm forgetting something.

              It was the day before my birthday, he had me wait outside the hotel and pulled up in a limo, practically ran me over when I got inside and just blurted out the question :)  He was super nervous, I don't know why though cause I am positive I made it obvious that's what I wanted!  

               

              Now just waiting patiently for my reply that our date is open....this is nerve-racking!!    I thought a destination wedding was supposed to be a piece of cake haha!

                  Hi Ladies!

                   

                  I'm going to be getting married at IRHB on June 20, 2011.  I just have a few questions that I hope someone can help with.  

                   

                  How many decorations/or what decorations did you bring down for your wedding?

                   

                  Has anyone or will anyone be sending packages down to the resort rather than packing them in a suit case?

                   

                  I want my reception to be as "traditional" as possible.  Is it possible do so at IRHB?

                   

                  Thanks so much!

                    Hi Elisa:

                     

                    Welcome to the group and congrats on your upcoming wedding! I am getting married 3 days later at the suites, so it is defintiely crunch time with getting everything done.

                     

                    The best advice is to literally read this entire thread. There is so much information on here, that most of your questions have most likely already been answered.

                     

                    To answer some of your questions, I am defintiely bringing all of my "goodies" with me. I plan on putting stuff in my checked luggage, carry-on and then if need be, giving items to some of my guests to bring down with them.

                     

                    As for shipping items keep the following in mind:

                    1. the hotel will not hold anything for you
                    2. it is very hard to get everything cleared through customs especially if you are not there to personally pick it up

                     

                    You can have whatever type of wedding you want, it all depends on your budget.

                     

                    Good luck in your planning!

                    Kecia

                      eholt I'm doing real touch as well so including the boutonnieres and corsages but I need the florist for the huppa.  Are you not decorating the huppa?

                       

                      I'm clothes shopping this weekend and I'll send our notarized copies next week for the marriage license.  Oh boy what else are we missing?  Did you do OOT bags?  A part of me wants to do a small welcome bag but I don't want to have too much to travel with nor do I want to spend tons :/  We are taking all of the guest on a catamaran sunset cruise as a "thank you".
