Iberostar Rose Hall Beach (IRHB) February 2012

Recommended Posts

I love those hanging flowers!!!!!....ours will probably be the 2nd or 9th though, so we probably couldn't share...maybe if I did the 9th and you were there already???

 

maybe us Feb brides should exchange e-mails or phone #'s? I'd love to share infor we get since it seems tuff to get it sometimes!

Yes, we should exchange info. I haven't really chosen a specific color theme, just bright tropical colors like oranges, bright reds, pinks, greens. I am thinking about doing the hanging chinease laterns and ordering customized shot glasses with candy in them as a wedding favor. I will let everyone know what I find out for prices and places to order from.

Hi Leslioni, I got a decent price through itravel2000, well compared to other travel agents. Its wil air canada vacations, 1 week, standard room, WPG-Montego Bay 1740.00 tax included.

The week I chose is more expensive than the start of Feb, because the 20th is a holiday.  Did you find any decent rates?

I doubt the hotel would hold stuff for us, we need to find someone in Jamaica that would take care of it for a small fee. It is a win win situation because brides going down don't have to haul extra decorations and brides coming back can just leave stuff there and sell their stuff.

I am planning on doing a couple things kinda small for the wedding if anyone wants to buy from me! It would be great to not have to lug back home!  We can just keep the decorations going bride to bride!

 

I am going to recreate this pic and have floating purple orchids at the wedding site and just use the standard silver chair ties and white chuppah fabric the hotel provides:

Then have these floating candles with purple orchids at the table (estimating about 8-10)

I am going to put these placemats under the vases and sprinkle sanddollars, shells and starfish around them

Then have a starfish for every person at the table for their place tag

Sorry if this was long, just excited!!! pinkie.gif

 

 

Wow, these look great! Love the hanging flowers and the floating candles.

We are flying in on the 9th!  But I know that is too late to get the decorations to the coordinator....  I will come hover in the corner shadows of your wedding to see how it all turns out blink.gif

I love all your ideas!!

 

I am actually doing the exact same centerpieces for my AHR.

 

Right now I am looking into buying paper lanterns (pink and white) to hang at the reception site for the hotel. I will probably bring them home though to use at my reception at home.

 

I might also bring some extra decor for the beach ceremony, I have seen some girls bring some extra material in their colours for the arch.

 

Are you girls planning on a beach ceremony?

 

I am trying to keep the costs down, but would like to do some extras!! I have all the pricing lists that the wedding coordinator sent me.

 

I have booked my wedding date but have not yet booked my trip lol. I plan to do that soon!

 

I will be flying out of Toronto probably Jan 28-Feb 4.

Leslioni,

 

I went to dollarama and bought these! They have 2 sizes, they come in turquoise, pink and green. They don't have any white ones. I would pick them up now, since they are seasonal items (in the gardening section).  I did find white lanterns at Pier 1 except they wanted $18 for 3 of them, but eventually I found some at dollarama (but they don't light up). My colours are turquoise and silver (since the resort supplies silver bows on the chairs, it seemed like a good idea to me!)

I did see those lanterns at Dollerama!! I think I may just grab them. I was looking on the website paperlanternstore.com, but I think if I just look around I could find them cheaper. The nice thing about that website is they have all sorts of colours and sizes.

 

Thanks for sharing!!

I wish I could have paper lanterns, I always wanted some, but unless you rent out the restaurant as 'private' you cant hang lanterns.  Seeing as that's $800, no thanks...

 

Make sure to check out orientaltrading.com .  They have AMAZING stuff for super cheap, it's where we are getting a majority of our stuff.

 

I went to Jo-ann fabric yesterday and found orchid stems (about 10 orchis/stem) on sale for $1.50!!  We will probably be buying up their whole stock!

    • 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?
