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 everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
