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...

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
