    I have a question for past brides who didn't have a private reception.  I have a group of 24 and we are having dinner at the Steakhouse on the Beach resort.  Our dinner will start at 7pm and we have requested a bonfire after.  What time should we start the bonfire? How long will it take for everyone to enjoy the dinner.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

      The package prices are the same for 2012.  Only the reception prices changed at the Grand (and the bonfire and disco rental rates).  I didn't mean to freak everyone out!  If you were already planning to add on a premium bar, then this won't affect you too much.  But if you wanted to save some money and go with the standard bar, then you're out of luck since it's no longer an option.

If the rates increased like the Grand....I may actually have to plan my wedding somewhere else. I understand the rates will increase, but for the rates to almost double is absolutely insane.

          Starryism your pics look great! Who did your flowers? was it Tai Flora? They were recommended to me by the resort, but I really love your bouquet.

           

          Thanks,

              Non-private dinners are 1.5 hours, so 7 - 8:30 pm.  I would plan to start the bonfire at 9, since the bonfire spot is directly in front of the Steakhouse.  Try to make sure that your guests don't leave in between :)  If you think they might, then just have the bonfire start at 8:30 or 8:45.

              Yes, it was Tai Flora.  My bouquet was upgraded though, I paid an extra $50 to have the stargazer lilies.  A ripoff, but oh well :)  They also weren't top quality - some of the orchids looked a little sad and wilted, and some of the stems weren't secured in the foam center, so I kept losing the same few stems. Eventually I just let them go and made sure to keep the empty side of the bouquet against me. lol

              We had the steel pans band at the ceremony.  It was so nice, it really added to the island feel.  We didn't request anything specific for them to play, except Canon in D for my walk down the isle, and Bob Marley's One Love when we walked back down the isle.  Otherwise, they just did whatever they wanted.  Honestly, I barely noticed, there's just so much going on and so much excitement, it's so hard to take it all in.  FWIW, they did stop playing RIGHT at the one hour mark.  We forgot to tip them. oops. That may have helped.

                Hey ladies...Just wondering what your thoughts are on the resorts photgrapher Digipix? It seems like many brides have hired outside vendors to do their photos/videos, is this the better way to go?

                  I'm doing exactly the same thing and Sylvia told me that the dinner had to start at 6:30 and the bonfire at 8:30. I was't sure if there was room for negotiation on the times but it sounded like a good schedule so I just went with it lol.

                    Hi Misshoneybee,

                     

                    I am also from the DMV. I am getting married Aug 18, 2012 at the Iberostar Suites. So excited to know there are other brides from here getting married at Iberostar.

                      I received my confirmation for April 13, 2013 at the Suites. I really wanted to send out the invites at least a year in advance to give my guest time to plan. The issue is airfare and hotel rates are not even published yet for 2013. I am wondering should I send out Save the Dates now and send out the actual invites once I have purchased our hotel and air package. What are your thoughts on this????
