Recommended Posts

Yay PhillyGal- I'm so happy that you posted and that we can use you as a resource. I'm sure Angel and I will have a ton of questions. So let me say THANK YOU ahead of time!!

 

A couple questions- did you rent out the steakhouse for your reception? Was the DJ set up in the steakhouse or outside it. Was there room to dance?

 

Did you have your ceremony on the beach or terrace? How was the setup?

 

(Tashi- I will definitely let you know about the packages my TA comes up with)

 

Thanks girls!!

PhillyGal,

 

Thank you so much for posting! I am getting married at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites on April 23rd this year and have struggled to find information of actual weddings that have taken place. Do you have pictures of the wedding ceremony you can post? I belive that whether you stay at the Iberostar Beach or the Suites it's the same ceremony spot and setup if you got married on the beach. Also, did you bring any table decorations for the dinner? I'm not sure if I just want to purchase flowers for the reception tables or if I should also bring candles and such. Did you get your hair and makeup done at the spa? If so, were you happy with the services? Sorry for all the questions, and I appreciate the help!

Send me your email addresses and i can send you some pictures. I have a zillion!!!

 

I'll try my best to answer your questions:

did you rent out the steakhouse for your reception? yes

Was the DJ set up in the steakhouse or outside it? he was set up outside the steakhouse but there were a couple speakers in the steakhouse, so it was fine.

Was there room to dance? yes, after we ate dinner, everyone got up and danced in the area outside the steakhouse. people either stayed in their seats in the steakhouse, most people danced and some people sat outside of the steakhouse and watched everything (there's still tables and chairs outside set up)

 

Did you have your ceremony on the beach or terrace? on the beach

How was the setup? set up with maybe 10 rows of 10 chairs with aisle markers - everyone faced the ocean. it was really beautiful!

 

Do you have pictures of the wedding ceremony you can post? I don't know how to post pics, i'll try.

 

Also, did you bring any table decorations for the dinner? no we had the flower people do the centerpieces and they did a terrific job. they also brought up the aisle markers from the ceremony and put them around the steakhouse.

Did you get your hair and makeup done at the spa? yes! and it was sooooo great! i would definitely recommend the spa staff. I got my nails done 2 days before the wedding, then they got messed up because of the water or something, and they redid them for free on the day of my wedding.

 

can you guys tell me how to upload photos??

I can Kiss you all. This is wonderful that we can all work together. Thanks in advance for all your help on everything. Toni, Girl I would like to see those pics. my email is nbarr25@yahoo.com. Now that you said that about Sandy I feel bad cause she respond to my emails very prompt but a few times it probably took 2 days and I email her back with a waiting remark. I will not do that again cause I feel her pain. I would like to get married on the terrace cause I can wear my shoes but the beach sounds really nice I will keep that in mind. No the center pieces how did the flower company set up your center pieces because i was thinking of shipping bowls with candles and such but if they can do it it will be easier. I guess I will see them when you send the pics. Ican't wait to see them. You can add pics through kodakgallery or flickr by just adding a album. I never worked with flickr before so I don't know how it work. But with Kodakgallery you can create a album and email the album or invite people to view the album. What were your colors. Ok ok Ill wait for the pics

 

Thanks again Toni

Thanks so much Toni! You are a LIFESAVER!! You are the first bride that we know of that has already gotten married at this resort! I will send you a message in a short while so that you can forward pics. I can't wait to see them!

 

So far Sandy has been good at responding. I'm looking to book at the Beach Hotel and not at the Suites - Just want it to be more affordable for our guests to come (plus there are kids coming as well).

 

Luckily,my requested date is available!!! May 25, 2010!!!

 

Thanks ladies for all the information so far!!!!!

Got them!! Thanks you so much. It definitely put my mind to ease about the ceremony site (beautiful) and the spa service- (loved everyone's hair). Overall it looks like everyone had an amazing time and that's what I'm hoping for!

 

Some follow up questions: did you use the minister/rabbi they provided or did you bring/hire an outside one?

 

How did you like the steel drum band for the ceremony music?

 

Did you have open bar at your reception? Was it expensive?

 

Did you have a cocktail hour between the ceremony & reception?

 

Ok i'll stop there so I don't overwhelm you. Thanks again!!

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
