    For those of you looking to rent chairs... I have been going back and forth with Floral Fantasies - they have white plantation chairs for $5 a piece, which I might like better than the chivilari chairs!

     

    If you are renting chairs, are you using them for both the ceremony and reception?  And if so, are you renting double for both places or will the hotel breakdown the setup from the ceremony and set-up the chairs at the reception during cocktail hour?

      I'm pretty sure I read in this thread that the staff will move chairs from the ceremony to the reception, so you won't have to rent double.

        Question for IRHB brides - has anyone had their make-up done at the salon at the resort or does anyone plan of getting it done there? Just wondering how it turned out, the wedding party (which consists of me and the maid of honor) don't really wear much make-up and to pay for someone external to travel and come on the resort, the price adds up quickly.... THanks!

          We're not doing a private dinner since we're 25ppl (and might go as high as 30). I don't mind the pillar lights but I've no idea what the 'regular' lights look like. I think if I can find inexpensive LEDs that I'll just get them and then decide once we're there.

            Wish I could tell you where in this forum I read it, but if you do a search you will find lots of positive reviews of the Iberostar salon. Based on those reviews, and my wish for simple, pretty makeup, I've decided to use them too. I would suggest bringing photos of hair and makeup that you like - the more you can show/describe the better I figure.

            I believe there is only one salon for the three properties so if there's a specific time you want in, I'd book it sooner than later.

              I've heard that they are very good at application too, but that they use cheaper make up brands. I'm using them since I can't justify forking up the vendor fee, but I'm going to bring my own make up collection and see if they will just apply my stuff for me. I'm also going to bring fake eye-lashes and see if they will apply them too.

                Hi ladies. Been a while since I've come on. Looking forward to getting married at the Suites 5/6! Anyone else out there going to be there around that time? I'm trying to do some more planning but I know Nicole doesn't really get involved until 3-4 months before.

                  Hi all,

                  Newbie here. I'm really hoping someone could help me please, I've tried searching through threads to answer my questions but can't seem to find the relevant answers and I'd really appreciate some help if possible. I'm flying out to the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites on the 26th November 2012 and getting married at the Rose Hall Beach on the 1st December 2012 due to a little mix up with bookings from our Travel Agent it meant we couldn't get married at our own hotel at this time but I hope it will all still be ok. I'm trying to find out how much an in-house Photographer costs at the resort, if anyone happens to know please? I've tried getting hold of the wedding co-ordinators at both resorts but to no avail, I appreciate they are always extremely busy. With only 6 weeks to go, I'm getting a little nervous that we may need to save some more money to cater for the costs but would really like to know an estimate before flying out.

                   

                  If anyone could help or point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it :-)

                   

                  Many thanks,

                  Rebecca

                    we used the salon for our make up and hair and they did a beautiful job.  i have a bit of acne scaring on my face and they make my face look perfect without looking caked on at all.  i attached a link to my pics if you want to see.

                      Thank you so much for sharing! You looked absolutely beautiful! I now have some confidence in going ahead with the spa for my hair & make-up. I had enquired about this on the board a little while back as well.
