We're starting to get the supplies for our welcome gift and are having a hard time figuring out the numbers. Does anyone know if they give the welcome gifts at check in or if they're placed in each guest's room? Also, is it proper etiquette to give one gift per couple? What about rooms with multiple guests that aren't a couple? So many questions! Hopefully someone can help:-)

 

Hi Jaime3,

 

I just got back from my wedding at the Suites.  You have a couple of options... the front desk can give the bags out on check-in, you can deliver them, or Nicole/Tiffany will deliver them (they offered to do it, not sure that they always make the offer though).  Originally, I was going to have the front desk do it when everyone checked in, but Tiffany recommended against that.  She said that she would deliver all of them.  In the end, I ended up bringing all of the bags to their office (which is right off of the lobby), and I just handed the bags out as our guests arrived.  We had 41 people and 21 bags.  I made all of the bags the same so that it was easier to give them out, so singles did get 2 of everything.  I just thought the added expense was worth not stressing over who got which bags.  When you get down to the wire, anything you can do to reduce your stress will be very good.  I was planning to welcome all of our guests anyway when they arrived, so this worked perfectly for us.  I spent about 3 hours in the lobby, and I saw everyone check-in.

 

Good luck!

Kim

Hello everyone I recently received my confirmation from the suites for August 2, 2013... So happy! I just sent my bridal party some fun "Will you be" cards and I pick up my boarding pass Save the Dates tomorrow from Office Depot that I designed. My fiance proposed on June 1, 2012 at Iberostar Rose Hall and Im super excited to go back for a destination wedding at the suites. We locked in 30 rooms with our agent and cant wait to get out our STD next week

Anyone whose already gotten married at the suites... what have you done for escort cards?  I'm sure there is a table to use but I want to check - if they use something specific or if I can request round vs. rectangle.  Also, are the tablecloths the same ones used for the dinner tables.  We are in the middle of designing our escort cards and before I finalize the design, I want to make sure the set-up can and will be what I want.

 

Also, did anyone bring their own table clothes/runners?

 

I had emailed Nicole right after 4th of July about a ton of things but haven't heard back yet....

I can only speak to how it was done in Calabash for a private reception.  I'm not sure if the restaurants handle it differently.  There is definitely a table, and we used a half moon table.  I only wanted white linens since I was using color in all of my accents, so yes the table cloth on my placecard/guest plate table was the same as the cake table and was the same as the dinner tables.  When our guests entered Calabash, the table was right there and guests would grab their place card and also we had a guest plate that everyone signed.  This table was big enough for me to have 2 sandboxes (I put sand, shells and place cards in there), 2 picture frames, and my guest plate.  I think the small centerpiece from the marriage license table was there also, I can't remember.

 

You could absolutely bring your own table clothes/runners and they would set them up.  When you get down there, you will have a meeting with Nicole or Tiffany.  You will go through every detail and pass off all of your decorations.  My mom was blown away that they didn't take very many notes at this meeting, but it was all set up perfectly on the day of.

 

I hope that helps!

Thank you, thank you! Were the sandboxes there or did you bring them with you? As I start to look at decor and stuff I am overwhelmed by all th stuff I potentially might want to bring - even just the escort cards, wedding programs, ceremony signs, table numbers and welcome bag stuff is more than I want to lug on a plane with me.... What does the hotel have, if anything? And did you bring stuff down or rent it from someone down there, thanks!

My wedding is February 24, 2013, i was thinking about sending invites the beginning of October. My only concern is that i currently have a little over 50 people who put their deposit down, i kow more people will book last minute so i am thinking between 60 and 70 people. What are the options for a private reception with that number? Calabash says minium of 70 guests, which i may not have. If anyone can help with what reception options i have and if you know what the food choices are so i can include that in my invites?

 

Thanks and happy planning!

I am not sure, but really hope so I am not a fan of round tables either. The resort has recently started a Facebook page and have been posting pictures of wedding setups and I have been keeping my eyes pealed for Uncle Tony's. It hasn't been posted yet.

I've contacted the people running the facebook page - FYI its not the hotel or the WC, it's run by photographers on the island... Still an awesome page to look at and use but it's not in by the resort
