2013 Iberostar Rose Hall Suites Brides

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I just sent in my request form- March 7th, 2013.

 

Thats about all the planning for me so far! =)

 

This may seem like a random question- my fiancé is Jewish and I am Christian. I know they can perform a legal, simple ceremony but does anyone know if the officiant wears a collar or can he just wear a suit?? 

 

I know, it's a totally random question but just want to be sure before I sign the contract!!

 

Thanks! Good luck to you all!!!!

I am sure that you can contact, or get your TA to contact the hotel in regards to this question. I know that there are different priests and ministers, and you should be able to request a civil minister  instead of a priest. But this is for sure something that you should talk to the hotel about if its a make or break question. I know I have seen a few photos from the resort doing a Hindu ceremony so  it seems to me that they would be able to accommodate you. 

 

On a side note! Your wedding will be one day before mine!!!! We requested May 08, 2013!!!

 

Hope that we get a chance to say hi in Jamaica!! Plus Court is also there in the time frame she is May 4,2013!

 

So excited!

 

Congrats and Goodluck!

CourtandMatt,

 

Thanks it was weird we originally looked at Mexico Iberostar and they required a 25% deposit of which ever package you choose, theres was bait different they had about 5 different packages where at Rose Hall Suites only has 2 Civil or Blessing.

 

So I was kinda worried that I didn't get the right info when they said no deposit.

 

Thanks for the info!

Anyhow, thanks for replying! My date is actually March 7th, not May. Good luck to you too!!!!

I was just married at the Suites in January.  The officiant is a minister.  The person officiating the ceremony is the same regardless of whether you have a legal or symbolic ceremony.  He wears a suit.  No collar as he is not a priest.  The difference is the ceremony script.  The ceremonies can have as much or as little reference to god as would suit your needs.  You can even bring your own script if you prefer. 

 

If you want a particular religious aspect, I would think they can accomodate (aka breaking a glass at the end or mention of certain traditions etc).  However, you should ask.

 

If you want a priest, rabbi, or other type of officiant that is associated with a particular faith, you would likely have to bring your own from home, or try to find one on the island (which may have vendor fees associated with it). 

Hope that helps.

If you want

CourtandMatt, I like the idea of the dinner cruise, if you find out any companies can you please share. I am looking into on my end too to see if I can find anything, but think that would be a good start to the wedding weekend!! :)

I will let you know.  I think our TA actually has someone in mind, but we aren't going to start pursuing that until we have a better idea of how many people are coming.

Hi there! I also recently received my confirmation for our April 3rd, 2013 wedding at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites.  (same week and Court and Matt ironically!!)  I haven't done much planning, just the very basics so far as  we have a nine month old baby boy to keep us busy, whom we are bringing with us for the wedding (will be 22 months old by then).  We think there will be around 30ish people, but are waiting til late summer to book the group as my travel agent has advised this for best rates.  We are having one person each stand up with us, my sister and his brother.  I'm thinking Lavender and either white or silver dor the colors.  My sister-in-law is a photographer so luckily we will be using her for the wedding photos.  I'm leaning towards the gourmet restaurant as AC is important to me and I read some not so great reviews about the un-airconditioned areas.  We are getting married on the beach at 4:00pm.  Not sure about a cocktail hour, but leaning towards none...just a small amount of time in between to go back to the room to refresh and regroup.  We are thinking we would like to hire a steel band for a couple hours the night of the wedding as my sister-in-law got married at the Bahia Principe a couple years ago in Jamaica and this was one of the best parts, so I'm hoping this resort's band would be equally great.  I've stayed at the Iberostar Beach (sister resort next store) once a few years back and LOVED it, no complaints other than I gained 7 lbs in a week...over indulgences haha.  I can only imagine the suites will be ever sweeter.  Looking forward to reading about your planning so I can be geared to do the same:)

    • 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?
