    I think it's 40 people minimum to rent out the restaurants and pay $800 to have it private. I really like that idea, then I won't have any other hotel guests participating in our wedding celebrations!

      At the Suites, it's 30 ppl for the mediterranean restaurant, 40 ppl for Calabash, 50 for Steakhouse.  I was wondering if the beach had different requirements, if there was a restaurant that also allowed 30 so we'd have a choice other than just the med.

          hey all, 2011 and 2012 iberostar rosehall brides!


          i've got an idea..there's a thread called starfish passing thread where brides who i believe are all marrying in Mexico are passing around a blue or clear starfish to add to each bride's bouquet..i guess it serves as 'something borrowed'..anyway, the girls are sending it to each other and using it in their weddings and i thought, hmmm..i bet we IBEROSTAR ROSEHALL brides could do that..and instead of having to send it in the mail upon our return, maybe we could simply leave it at the hotel with the next bride's WC so that they could turn it over to that bride..now, its just a thought but i wondered if you all might be interested in starting a 'something borrowed' tradition...

            Does anyone know about their cancellation policy? I am trying to book at Iberostar Beach but they are not getting back to us :-( they said that if we cancel once the legal paperwork has gone thru we wld be charged $100. but the airfare for when we are wanting to go hasn't cone out. So when they do come out, if it's over $500 we may need to consider other places to try and keep it affordable for our guests..... So what im asking is how long do i have to decide before im charged the cancellation fee? Thanks to all the wonderful and helpful brides! :-)

              i booked the 'renewal' wedding to avoid that situation AND  because my fiance and i are going to get the 'legal' part out of the way here in the good ole USofA...i'd recommend doing that.  of course, should you change your mind and decide to go the legal route, give them a call or email them about 4-6 months in advance..i bet they'll be happy to change it from the 'renewal' wedding to a legal one.


              please keep in mind that when you look for rates in 2012..they're going to be sky high...its usual that rates are priced that way when you're looking a year in advance..what i did was..use rates for the same part of the year, ie, i got engaged in july and knew i'd have an october 2011 wedding so last july, i looked at october 2010 rates and used that as a 'guide' for my guests.  rates are usually best w/in 3-4 months prior to departure...at least that's been my experience. 


              my fiance and i travel to jamaica every Fall and have been doing so for the last four years...frankly, in years past, i didn't book my travel until august...of course, this time around, i booked in march because we're getting married there 10.8.11..AND i wanted to assure my guests that i'd already booked...but right after i booked, the rates went down DRASTICALLY so my travel agent got us a cost adjustment (can u say great job for the TA??) 


              another thing to think about is...iberostar is a higher priced resort BUT soooooo well worth the $$$...i've stayed at Sandals Montego Bay, Breezes Runaway Bay and Iberostar Rosehall Suites...and to be frank...IBEROSTAR was the BEST HANDS-DOWN...now, don't get me wrong...we enjoyed Sandals and Breezes was fun too..but for our wedding, we wanted our guests to have an "optimal" experience.  most of our guests have never left the USA so the mere thought of them traveling made me want to ensure that they would have the BEST experience for the $$$...so, if you can afford it...go for it!  :-)


              no matter your choice, you're in jamaica...so, as the locals say...its all NO PROBLEM, MON!



              happy planning!  R~

                Hi everyone,

                Here are a few teaser pics. There are more on Joro Photography's facebook page. Just look them up :) I am now at the Grand enjoying my honeymoon. There were a few minor mishaps on the day of the wedding but nothing that ruined my day. I will post a review when I get back. beach.jpgthe plunge.jpgaction wedding.jpgred chair.jpgwater wedding.jpg
