        I got the round paper lanterns here:
        Even Ribbing Round Paper Lanterns

        They were 24" size. They will be too big to fit in a normal suitcase, but do not try to ship them. We had them shipped, and it was a nightmare trying to get them out of customs.


        I got square-shaped lanterns for the picnic tables on the beach here:

        Box LED Battery Operated Lanterns, Chinese Gifts, Japanese Gifts

        Lights come with those, but you have to get batteries for them. I got the LED lights for the laterns from one of those 2 sites. It had 3 LED bulbs and came with a battery.

          Because we had so many people staying at the resort (about 100), we were upgraded to the Presidential Suite. It is absolutely gorgeous with a beautiful view. The word had spread about how nice it was, and several of our guests came over just to check it out. The terrace is huge, and it has a jetted tub on it  Even if you don’t get the Presidential Suite, all of the rooms there are really beautiful.

          Guest Check-In & Welcome – B

          We had too many guests to do an all-out OOT bag for everyone, so we just got monogrammed travel mugs and printed welcome letters for everyone. We really wanted them to be handed out when they checked in, but Nicole (the WC) didn’t trust the front desk to do it right (maybe from bad prior experiences), so they were delivered to their rooms after check-in instead. Most people got theirs, but there were a few who didn’t. The welcome letter had been tucked inside the packet with the info from the hotel, so some people didn’t see it. The mugs seem to have been popular though, so we’re glad we did it.

          We requested that everyone be put into wing 3, which is closest to the wedding site, and they did a great job of doing that. One thing you should let your guests know though is that if they arrive prior to 3pm, their room probably won’t be ready, even if your travel agent notifies the hotel of their arrival time. This was the case with most of our guests, but since we warned them ahead of time it didn’t seem to be a big deal.


          Welcome Cocktail Party – A

          We had our welcome cocktail party on the night that most people arrived (Thursday) on the lobby balcony from 8:30 to 10:30. We loved this location because it overlooks the pool, which is gorgeous at night. We brought our own DJ, and Nicole let us use the DJ equipment at no charge, which was really nice. The lobby bar is just inside from the balcony, so our guests were able to go inside for their drinks. They also had a bartender that came over and was taking our guests drink orders and bringing them their drinks, which we didn’t expect at all. So we were able to have a fabulous get-together with drinks and music for no charge. Can’t beat that :) Everyone seemed to have a great time and it gave people a chance to meet each other.

              Does anyone know if the Calabash restaurant can work for a large group (70) and dancing?

                Hey Ms.Smithtobe I looked at the wedding package info and it says calabash will seat 50-70 people. I am not sure if the leaves room for a dance floor!

                    We had the dancing on the beach for the reception for no additional charge. As long as you rent out the Steakhouse restaurant for your reception ($800) you can pretty much do what you want with that whole area, including the beach in front of it.

                      WOW Lisa....Thanks you so much for the wonferful review. I just changed my mind and moved my wedding from Rosehall Resort & Spa to Iberostar. Hopefully my date is available. You looked beautiful. Greatly appreciate all the info. Did the hotel do the setting up for you (reception etc)? Just asking since you brought in some of your own decor.
