Any other brides for Rose Hall Resort?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

This was a long and tedious process for us. We have been debating over resorts for the last 2 months. It has actually become on ongoing joke with friends and family as to where we are going! BUT...My FI and I have finally decided on the Rose Hall Resort and Spa in Montego Bay. Lucky for us they have our date (Aug. 14, 2009) and time available.

 

I am wondering if there are any other brides out there who are getting married at the Rose Hall or have gotten married there and can give us some feedback.

 

I am so glad that I've found this forum, there is so much helpful information and great ideas!! Thanks so much!!

Hi Jaime!! I'm not yet a Rose Hall Bride because I am still trying to decide between them and the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites... My fiance' and I actually did a site visit there last week and the resort was absolutely gorgeous!!! I will agree with you in this being a tedious process because it has been very difficult to nail down location. Congrats on finally deciding, I hope to settle on a place in the next few weeks.

Congrats on picking a location and date. Everyone kept telling me that was the hardest part...not sure if I still agree with that. I am not a ROse Hall bride, but I know there is a bride, amee getting married there next month.

 

Good luck!

Hi Jaime! I am also from PA, not too far from West Chester either:-) Use the search tool and plug in "rose hall resort" for some more postings about the resort. That's what I did, and there are a few more threads on this resort. Congrats on your decision!

Thanks everyone for all the comments!

FutureMrs. welcome, congrats and thanks for the search suggestion, I have tried that but haven't come up with too much...

GregsBride, when you visited the resort what did you think were the best parts? We are considering the gazebo that is near the water for our ceremony, from the pics it looks beautiful. Which site (gazebo, beach, aqueducts) would you choose?

JnM09,

 

I liked both gazebos, but the one near the ocean is a bit more private so if I were choosing a gazebo that one would be my pick. But the location I fell in love with is I believe is called "Ocean's Edge". It's not to far from the ocean gazebo, and it's at the end of the golf course. Everything is set up on the lawn, and the couple and minister is at the end of the greens overlooking the ocean. It was so breathtaking!! I have a few pics of the resort, if you send me a message I can send a link to the photo gallery to you.

Christina thanks again for sending that link to your photos...I think I am having a change of heart after seeing them. Iberostar looks really nice, and I've been hearing not so good things about the costs at RHR adding up and getting really expensive. Great if you're budget can accomodate extra expenses, but mine can't! When you went on you're site visits, did either of the resorts offer you a credit or comp if you decide to book with them?

FutureMRS--what have you been hearing about the costs at RHR? I have gotten some of the pricing but not all. I think that we have decided on a cocktail reception and then going to dinner at one of the restaurants afterwards. This seemed like the best option for us....love to hear your thoughts!

    • 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?
