Iberostar Quetzal Bride!

Recommended Posts

@@JennyZ that is amazing!!! I am

The worst procrastinator ever!! I just emailed her yesterday because I figure I should start some actual planning!! Lol!! Your line up pretty much sounds like what we want.. How many people are you having? Can your forward me the things you have? Especially the add ons! We are trying to

Figure out the best way to go

With the packages as well! We also are thinking music on an iPod but are up in the air with it! I'm also curious if your using their salon to get ready? I read in a post some girls go to 5th ave to get their hair done.. Thought that might be fun.. But not to sure! And did you choose a photographer?

@@Jlk1004 - in the wedding packages, you get a hair trial & the day of wedding hairstyle, so I'm going with pictures of what I want and am going to see if they are able to recreate. I'm a professional MAC makeup artist, so it goes without saying, I'll just be doing my own make-up ;) If they can't do my hair, I'm pretty sure I'll just do my own as well. Working in the bridal industry for over 10 years, I can tell you, the last thing you want to be doing on your wedding day is running around town to appointments! These forums are great though, just do some searches and see if brides are referring the same girl(s) so you can have some peace of mind :)

 

I'm bringing my own photographer here from Canada. By the time I paid for an upgraded package to include their photographer (who is only there for the ceremony, toast and cocktail hour) I can fly my guy out and have pics for the entire week! That means, pictures of the ladies/men getting ready, the "reveal" pic where bride and groom see each other for first time, ceremony, whole rest of the day/night/party, family shoots on the beach, pics at the restaurants, etc! I dont want to have to only be able to chose 60 pictures from a 2 hour span by using theirs.

 

Get ready for some emails girl!!! :D


@@Jlk1004 - Check your email Hun! Sent you 4 separate emails, with different attachments for their Wedding locations, cakes, flowers, restaurants. The gold package and flowers. The photographer. The dream package and flowers.

 

They did have 1 package, which was the least expensive (I believe it was called the "Mayan package" for approx $1400?) but I dont have that information anymore, as I didnt find I was getting much from it/was worth it to go with the Gold package.

 

Hope this helps!!! B)


P.S. We're planning on approx. 20-30 people, but no one has RSVP'd yet, so have noooooo idea! EKKK! lol!

@@JennyZ - would it be possible for you to send me all the info you have as well?  I have the packages themselves but don't have any info on upgrades, photographers, locations, and so on!!  Our wedding is in Jan and I still haven't heard from Connie - so i'm starting to panic a little haha

 

Any info/advice you can send me would be greatly appreciated!! ashleynbest@hotmail.com

Hi ladies!

 

I am a newbie also considering the Iberostars for December 2015 as well! - both the Quetzal and the Paraiso complex. Any help/information would much appreciated! Also, curious as to what made you choose this resort, as I'm trying to narrow down my choices!

 

Thanks!

@@JennyZ we have just booked our wedding for the Iberostar Quetzal for January 2016. I see you're from Kitchener - I grew up in Waterloo :) We live in Ottawa but about half of our wedding party will be travelling from your area and TO. I was wondering if you could possibly send me the info that you have kindly sent to others? My email is laurahanby@@Rogers.com

 

Any others out there who have had their wedding at Iberostar Quetzal? I'd love to hear what add-ons are worthwhile, which restaurant you chose, etc.

@@toriw83 - Both are fabulous locations and resorts - You really cant go wrong at either! They actually look very similar (decor, restaurants, food, walkways, etc.) I chose the Quetzal/Tucan for my wedding, due to it's smaller size. The Paraiso, has 5 Iberostar resorts side-by-side (the Paraiso Grand / Paraiso Beach / Paraiso Lindo / Paraiso Del Mar / Paraiso Maya) and is a huge complex. They have their own shopping center with an AMAZING taco shop and a burger place that you have to check out, if you go! (all included in your stay), where the Quetzal only has the Tucan as it's mirror image (2 resorts side-by-side). I found there was a lot of walking at the Paraiso, but it was so nice to be able to go over to the next resort(s) (literally just a pathway separating them) to check out different theatre shows and activites everyday!

 

Hope this helps a bit! :)

@@JennyZ thank you so much for sending that info! I had some of the documents but not all, so definitely helpful. I love how organized you are - I am a planner too and usually much more on the ball than I am right now but our second son is due any day now. I'm just glad we got the wedding and vacation packages booked before I popped!

 

The only other thing that I'm hoping to get soon is more details on the restaurants for a private dinner (menu, what the seating plan would look like, photos of standard decor). Would you happen to have that? The word document Connie provided "my wedding at Iberostar" did not have the level of detail I need!

@@Laurahanby - No problem! Glad I could help!!! Congrats on the soon-to-be new addition too btw!!!

 

Go back to the files I sent you and check out the "MY wedding details at IB T&Q" pdf.

- Starting on page 6: Each restaurant actually has the menu listed :)

 

As for restaurant set up, that info you will have to get from the wedding coordinator.  I haven't planned that far yet. Standard decor is just white tablecloths, with your plates, cutlery, glasses, etc.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
