    I was wondering about the make up as well to Tgreen. I just started talking to Syrecka a couple of days ago who I guess is the assistant to Janielle and she sent me all of this paper work and it all seems so extra expensive. However, I think I am just overwhelmed with everything. I was looking at pictures of someone who had make up done there but I was wondering if they used her makeup or they used their own. I want a soft natural look on my day and the air brushed make up does that really well.

      Maybe I am lost but I keep seeing free ceremony but the paperwork I have says 3000 and 2800 one is for legal and the other one is not legal. What is the free wedding ceremony exactly?

        That was an awesome journal and it scared me to think that this is going to be so much harder than I thought it was going to be. I love the creativity and it's giving me so many ideas but I am only creative when it comes to music. Now I am scared that I have not put a lot of thought into this. Not enough at least. How did you keep your sanity it seems like you had a lot of work to do?

          We are getting married at the Grand on June 1, 2013. We are using the basic legal package. I emailed the resort with questions and I thought I would post the answers here in case they could help someone else. My questions are in black and red, her responses are in blue and green.

           

          1. What decorations are included with my package? For example, what chairs do you use for the ceremony? See attached a photo of chair us for weddings What flowers are included for the ceremony? Tropical and Roses Do the chairs have covers? Yes

           

          2. Does the Port Maria rental price (ex. 3,000 for 50-75 people) include alcohol? $3000usd for 30-50 guest and is inclusive of alcohol

          If not, what is the extra charge? Are there any decorations included in the rental?Table and chair with white linen

           

          3. If we decide to have a la carte instead of the buffet at Port Maria, will the charge be only 70/per person or is it 70/per person in addition to the 3,000?$70usd only

           

          4. What does the extra 20/per person pay for?It’s a service charge for additional guestAs I understand, my wedding package does not include cake or champagne.No

           

          5. Is it possible to extend the Port Maria rental an extra hour (from 7:00-11:00)? What would the extra charge be?$250usd in cash for the staff, and $12usd per person for the bar and additional charge for your entertainment.

           

          6. Can we add a cake to our package? How much would it cost?Depending on the amount of guest you haveHow much would it cost for 60 people? 80 people? 5 * 80= $400usd

           

          7. We want to have music from an ipod during the ceremony.No problem Does this cost extra? No Will there be someone there to run the ipod (change songs, etc.)?certainly

           

          8. The Digipix package says that it includes 50 photos. Does this mean they will give you the best 50 prints and negatives out of all the photos they take or do they only take 50 photos in all? Only the 50. I want to be sure that I understand your response. Are you saying that Digipix will only take 50 photos of the entire wedding? That doesn't seem like very many. No they will take a lot but you will only get the 50 you are paying for .

           

          9. Is the bonfire a one time charge of $500 or is that a per hour charge? Per hour

           

          10. If we want one of our guests to officiate the ceremony, will there be an additional charge? No but our minister will have to be there as well if you are having a legal ceremony. What if our guest is ordained as a minister in the U.S.? once it is a legal wedding the local minister will have to be there to say a few words and sign the legal document

           

           

          Also, I received a form (Wedding Details BASIC PACKAGE) (attached) from her this week that has different prices than she quoted in these answers. For example, the Port Maria rental price no longer includes liquor. I have requested an updated 2013 price list and will post it when I get it.

            It's been a while since I came back to this site. Things have been quite busy since we got back from our destination wedding in Jamaica. 

             

            My fiance and I were married at the Iberostar Grand Hotel Rose Hall (http://thegrandcollection.com/gall) in May 2012. It was out-of-this-world!! We could not have asked for more!

             

            Not knowing what to accept and putting our wedding plans in the hands of a stranger at the resort was so scary! I'm hoping the follwing two links will help anyone that is wondering about the Iberostar resort. The first link will also help if you're looking for a wedding photographer...Merrick Cousley was fantastic!!

            The color blue of the bows you had on the chairs where did you get those from because I was told the resort only has a certain type color. That blue though is the same exact blue we want our bows to be on the chairs. Where did you get them and what was the actual color called? Thanks in advance

              Hi there.

               

              The resort only have white, silver and lime green I believe. The bouquets and chair ties were provided by Tai Flora. Sorry, I don't know the name of the blue ties. I sent them a picture. I'm sure you could do the same...send my picture if you like.

               

              Hope that helps. Best of luck with the planning. Your day will be amazing. The girls at the grand are awesome.

              Emma

                  Your welcome. I thought Tai Flora were excellent to deal with and the chair ties were a pretty close match to the color I sent. Good luck!

                      Hi Madison87!!

                       

                      Thank you for posting your questions To the Grand.  I just sent them a similar email tonight (before I read your post) in regards to some questions on the details of pricing.  My fiance and I were looking at renting the Port Maria for our reception (30 guests), and I was alarmed that our paperwork said the $3000 did not include open bar, especially since all our guests are staying at the Grand!!  I'm really looking forward to seeing your updated price list, as we are definitely going to reconsider the private reception if it does not include the alcohol.  I'm also surprised to see that the "a la carte" menu is only $70 per person with no rental fee (minimum 30 guests I'm assuming), I'm wandering if alcohol is included in this or if it's an extra fee. 

                       

                      I just showed my fiance your post, and we both found it funny that in response to your question about extending the rental till 11PM, she told you there was a cash charge for the staff, it sounds just a little sketchy.

                       

                      Overall, we are planning our wedding for November 2013, but we haven't found the correspondence with the resort very professional.  It's a pretty penny to stay there, therefore you have an expectation of service.  I have to say, we absolutely LOVE the resort (stayed in May 2011), but I don't feel a sense of ease with the organization.

                       

                      Is it possible to PM me your Wedding Details attachment?  I don't have enough posts on the forum yet, therefore don't have access.

                       

                      Thanks so much!!!

                       

                      Sarah
