Myen's Iberostar Rose Hall Suites Review (long)

Great and very detailed review! Thank you so much! I would love to see more pictures if you'd like to share
I'm a little worried about flying into Jamaica and my vision being completely different from what actually happens... but I guess that's EVERY destination bride's biggest concern. I do have a couple of questions though. Did you use the resorts linens or did you rent/bring your own? And was your wedding photographer in Jamaica or did you fly them in? I checked out their website but they didn't have a location listed.
Thank you so much! And congrats again!!!

We used the resort linens but brought our own chair sashes. The resort had chair sashes as well but we wanted to make sure that our colors coordinated.
As for the photographer, we flew them in or more specifically, there travel expenses are included in the total cost of the package. They are based out of Springfield, MO and we're from Calgary, Canada. I found them through BDW as many they had been highly recommended by many Mexico brides. Our wedding was originally set to be in Mexico but with the swine flu, we had to quickly change our destination and Tammara & Grant accommodated us at no extra charge. This was their first Jamaican wedding, but in speaking with them, they mentioned that they had no problems in doing more Jamaican weddings in the future. It might be worthwhile to check them out. I'll be sure to post my pro-pics as soon as I receive them.
Hope this helps,

We did bring quite a bit of our own decor elements down such a chair sashes, blue table crystals, etc. along with all of the OOT bag items that we had 4 suitcases packed in total plus my dress. Purchasing some of the items in MoBay made it a lot easier and affordable to get any additional items.
Hope this helps and happy planning!
Thanks for this, I know exactly where this is!! I will have to remember this when I have to bring items down with me. I had plans to carry down several items for decor, but this will surely lighten my load quite a bit!!
