Iberostar Rose Hall Brides - Post all info/questions here!

Recommended Posts


Hi Strelkam, you don't have to do much before hand really.  I opted to do oot bags for guests and had a blast filling them, however I had to keep my now husband in check, he wanted to get more and more and more...  I took some chair sashes with me and fabric for the huppa, dresses and oot bags for everyone.  it was beautiful and almost entirely stress free.  My favorite memory of the wedding festivities was the morning of the wedding I went to breakfast by myself (hubby sleeping in) and then went to the pool for some alone time until family found me.  Went upstairs to shower and get room service then get ready with the photographers.  How many people (who do traditional weddings) can say they laid by the pool with a cocktail for 2 hours before their wedding!!!!!

 

Oh and for the other people asking about salon services, I didn't use them except for a couples massage, but guests did for hair and manicures and had great results. 

 

Enjoy the wedding and all the time with FI, family and friends, it will go by way too fast!

Breeze: I can't believe your Mom made your dresses! You guys looked absolutely amazing!

 

My fiance likes the suits your husband and groomsmen wore, can you please provide more details about their suits...Is it the regular linen suit, what color linen did they order, did they wrinkle badly? I like the weight of Linen but hate how it wrinkles and looks messy at the end of the day.

 

MrsDeloatch: What color did your fiance get?

 

Thank you for any info you can provide!

Hi girls!!  I'm brand new this website and to planning as I just got engaged on December 14th!  My FI and I are planning a DW and after my somewhat obsessive (okay, very obsessive) searching I think Iberostar Rose Hall Suites is at the top of our list.  I have a few questions and any input you all can give would be great!  First of all, how far in advance did you begin contact with the planner?  I'm looking at a June 2012 date so I realize I'm probably a little premature in my efforts but I really have no idea of DW time lines.  Did any of you go visit the resort before booking your wedding?  I'm VERY nervous about booking sight unseen.  If you did, is it worth doing?  Also, I've read that some resorts offer some sort of reimbursement if you visit and tour the resort for your wedding and choose to book there.  Anyone know if that is the case with Iberostar?  I'm sure I will have many more questions for you ladies but I won't overload you tonight! 

 

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide and I'm so excited to get planning!

Congrats to all of the newly engaged and booked and planning!!  I'm right there with you planning for a November 2011 DW at IRHS.  My save the dates are at the printer, our trip is booked, wedding date confirmed....and now working on the OOT bags.  I am having so much fun with them!  We decided to do beach towels instead of bags.  I know that the resort provides towels, but I thought it would be something that both guys and girls would use again and hopefully something to clue people in at the pool/beach that they are there for the same wedding (since they have matching towels).  I'm still working on other things to go with the towels...so many ideas!!

 

Anyone include postcards in their OOT bags?  I thought it would be cool to have a postcard of the resort or something that you would find at the gift shop, but all I'm coming up with online are sites that let you make your own.

We ordered "Tan Linen" which I guess is like a" came"l colored linen.  Of course he hasnt worn it yet, but the construction of it is very nice... Its not real thin like some linens and doesnt seem like it will wrinkle easily.. but I am definitely interested to here Breeze's thoughts.

 

I am actually going to order him a lighter one.. so that he can chose which one he wants to wear for the wedding or rehearsal dinner...

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!  
    • Visit Jamaica and check out Montego Bay Photographer for your family vacation or Destination Wedding photography!!! https://www.montegobayphotographer.com
    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
