Iberostar Rose Hall Suites - So Many Questions!!

Recommended Posts

 

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me.  The date has been secured, so I'm getting married next year at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites.  I'm risking it by not visiting (due to money reasons), so I have so many questions to ask.  Can someone help?

 

Nicole is a bit unresponsive when it comes to email and its been such a struggle to secure the date with her even, so I'm looking for other brides that have gone through this.

 

1.  Did you get to choose the reception menu?  I didn't know if I should ask my guests to provide their preference on the RSVPs or not.

 

2.  How do you get the Presidential Suite?  We'll pay extra!!  We have a travel agent booking our rooms; did you have to request this room through Nicole or did your travel agent take care of it.

 

3.  Do you recommend sending a package beforehand?  I wanted to give everyone welcome bags, but don't want to lug it on the plane with me, so I was interested in sending everything beforehand.  However, I know that clearing customs can be a pain.  Also, I'm not sure if Nicole will keep it there for me.  

 

4.  Is there a general order for the ceremony?  I just want to know what to put on the programs.  What did you put?

 

5.  Are there shops nearby?  I wanted to put some Jamaican Rum into our welcome bags, and wanted to know if I need to really search.

 

6.  Did you use a DJ?  If so, what kind of media does he take for the music?  CD? DVD?  IPod?  

 

7.  Comments on their spa and the hair?  Do you recommend doing a hair trial at their spa or can is it safe to wing it?  

 

8.  Photographer.  Comments?  Does he stay for a long time?

 

9.  How far in advance do you make all the plans (locations, decorations, live music or not, etc...)?  I know you meet with Nicole when you get there, but do you tell her your preferences before arriving in Jamaica?  What do you go over during the first meeting with her? 

 

10.  I'm interested in the private restaurant for the ceremony.  Any comments or suggestions as to whether its worth the $800.  Also, I want to make sure there's a dance floor.  

 

11.  I read that the service is not so great.  Is that true?  If so, what about alcohol?  My guests like to dance & drink, so I want to make sure they're not annoyed with running out of alcohol or being limited by their selection.

 

Thanks so much!  I might have more questions, but this is what I can think of as of right now.  I'm SOOOO excited - thank you =)

Have you had a chance to search the forum and view the reviews of prior IRHS brides.  You should be able to find the answers to quite a few of your questions.  It has been mentioned that Nicole responds more a month or so prior to your wedding and that she is a wonderful person to deal with once that time rolls around.

 

I am not visiting before my wedding either but I am confident in the ratings I have found on this site and on the web.  The resort is rated well...excellent actually.

Iberostar Suites is great you just  have to be on top on your plans (That's everywhere in Jamaica). The hotel is absolutely beautiful, the drinks are great and the food FAB! We stayed there in January and are getting married there March 2011

I think if you look through the forums you will find alot of these answers. I get married on 16th December s 7 weeks away and Nicole is only just really responding now. From all the comments on here she is great so i wouldn't get too worried about it as you have a bit of time.

 

Q.6 - I am asking the questions re cd/ipod now so when i get a response i will le you know.

Q.7 - In regards to hair everyone has been really pleased, but i would always get a trial wherever i was. You should look at people reviews. 

Q.8 - the photographer is the only thing that i have not heard great things about. I am going to book my own

 

I will give a full review after my wedding too, so hopefully that would help. Search Iberostar Rose Hall suites reviews and planning threads. hey are sooo helpful

 

xoxo

Hey Cam-  Ive contacted Digipix multiple times with no response.. While I do not want to spend alot on pictures Im a bit nervous about their reviews and their unresponsiveness.  Do you have anyone in mind yet for photography?

I am using Marcia Roberts as her pricing is $1200 for all day coverage of the wedding day. You can google her as well. Her pricing is alot more affordable compared to some of the others!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
