have any of you gone down to do a preliminary look? I have honestly booked based on all the positive comments and nice pictures, but wanted to go down before the wedding. Did they give you a discounted rate when you stayed being that you scheduled the wedding there?

Hi Courtney! Congrats! I am impressed by your planning! You're doing a great job! May I ask you who your WC is? I am planning on booking my WD with IRHS in either May 2013 or February 2014... depending on the availability. Who do I need to contact?  Thank you!

I haven't done a preliminary look.  I completely trust our TA since she just did a wedding there, she highly recommends it, and she is our family friend.  Also, I just had a colleague who was there and highly recommend it as well.  Plus, I love surprises and new experiences so I really wanted it to be all new to me when I get there.

My FI has actually been the one contacting the WCs at the hotel (when our TA hasn't been).  We initially got in contact with the WCs through the TA and then our TA said if we ever have trouble getting ahold of them to contact her immediately.  That may be the reason why we get such quick responses from the hotel.  We have had no trouble getting ahold of them through the phone or email.  If you start having issues, talk to a TA (I highly recommend mine if you are needing someone - see my wedding website: http://CourtneyMara.com/Wedding).  Good luck!!

Hi Courtand Matt,

 

I was looking into May 2013 next year as well but we haven't officially picked a date yet. Do you mind telling me about how much you got your hotel rates for?? Is it an all-inclusive, flight/hotel rate that they gave you?? Did the travel agency give you a special deal for the bride and groom since you are having 60 guests over??

 

We are still deciding on the location, then hotel. It all depends on the all-inclusive prices for everyone else, otherwise, not a lot of people can attend.

 

Thank you,

Val and Duke

You can see the rates on my wedding website: http://CourtneyMara.com/Wedding.  The rates are only hotel (all inclusive hotel rooms).  Airfare is not out yet.  The special deal is I believe one free person per 20 persons (or something like that) plus an upgrade for the bride and groom.  We really wanted this place so we did not focus on the deal.  We have only heard great things about this place and we wanted Jamaica so this is where we are having it.  If you want to know more about why we chose Jamaica - let me know!  Good luck!!

Hi laups113,

 

I'm just wondering, how do you book the rose hall suites?? and would the food and drinks that will be served during your wedding be included or extra because it is an all-inclusive resort. I understand that flowers and decorations, etc. would be extra but i'm just wondering about the food and drinks.

 

Also, can anyone explain the differences with Iberostar's "Rose Hall Suites", "Grand Rose Hall" and "Rose Hall Beach"? Are those all different areas of the hotel?? I'm looking into the Rose Hall Suites since there's great reviews and more a la cartes but i still want a beach ceremony.

 

Thanks for all the help!!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
