We are going to have about 35 people and I am wondering what the p/p charge is going to be.

Hey Guys! I haven't been on this forum in a while.  I'm getting married December 11, 2011.  We are staying at the Suites from Dec. 7 - Dec. 14th and we are paying 2,840 for 2 to fly from Chicago to Montego Bay, transportation to the hotel and 7 nights at the resort (food,drink,tax,etc).  We are going there during off-peak time so I'm not sure if that has something to do with our price being so reasonable. Our travel agent is pretty amazing.   I know she works with Fun Jet vacations so you can always check with them for pricing.

 

 We have 50 people booked for our trip and everyone is staying at the suites except for 2 guests who are staying at the beach.  Nicole said that in order for them to get to the suites the day of the wedding they will have to pay 30.00 but on trip advisor some people said that their guests just walked over and it wasn't an issue. 

 

If anyone has any questions please let me know.  I'm less than 4 months away from the big day and I feel like all the pieces are starting to fall into place! :)

Congratulations! I'm sure the next two months will fly by. I'm getting married April 2013 at Iberostar Beach. You'll have to post a review once you return and tell us all about it :)

I have a few questions:

- Does the Blue Moon Music Bar or Lobby bar have anything going on after 10:30 at night (ie. live music or anything)?  I'm wanting to put in to my welcome book itinerary where guests are to go after the wedding reception.  And which is which?  I'm assuming the lobby bar is the one with the black and white tiled floor and the music bar is the purple one?  Any info on either of them would be great.

- For your notarized documents did you simply have them stamped anywhere on the photocopy or was there some specific requirements that you were provided.  The lawyer that I am having notarize mine has said that countries usual have specific requiremtns (ie. stamp directly on the face, etc.)

- Do the reception tables have table cloths that touch the floor or do they need to be ordered seperately?

- If you had your ceremony on the beach, was the sand fairly packed down?  My bridesmaids are wearing stiletto's and don't want to wear bare feet:).

- The coordinator has said that the round tables only sit 8 people, however I have seen photos of tables set for 10 people.  Do you know if there are 10 person tables? 

- What exactly is involved in the saturday night beach party?  I was thinking of doing a beach bonfire on the Friday but don't want to pay for one if they can get the same thing the next night.

 

Any input and even a review of your wedding would be awesome!

 

Thanks,

Shauna

I have to admit that I'm kind of annoyed with having our wedding at Iberostar.  We have our date reserved at the Beach Resort, after after some wedding discssions over the weekend with my fiance we decided that we were going to look into the Suites.  During this whole process we are really looking to keep things affordable for our guests since we are having roughly 40-50 people attending.   Long story short, after a discussion with the WC at the Suites, I was told that we can get married at the suites, but our guests who stay at the Beach Resort will have to pay $30.00 pp to come over to our wedding.  That's IN ADDITION to the $18.00 extra that I would have to pay for the wedding ceremony set up and dinner.  They are making a fortune and it's totally ridiculous that they charge for people to come our wedding.  I'm totally ready to give up on the whole destination wedding thing :(  It's becoming more stressful planning a wedding away then it would be to just stay at home!  I'm very dissapointed.

 

Sorry for my venting, but does anyone else happen to feel this way?  It just seems everytime I turn around it's extra money for this and extra money for that.....

    • 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.
