    Hi Iberostar Brides!!

     

    I'm back home and would like to share my experience with you. I will do a full review sometime next week. We were married on April 25, 2013. Like most of you, I panicked the majority of the time because of the lack of communication. PLEASE RELAX. Once you get there, you will meet with Nicole to go over all the details. She is very nice and will help in any way possible. Our ceremony was on the beach, the dinner was at Aunt Ruby's, and we rented a private room at the Blue Moon for the reception for $390.00 for two hours which included the DJ. We were introduced, cut the cake, our first dance, and toss were all done at the Blue Moon. Based on the forums, I thought that my party of 25 was small; however, it was just enough people for us. The negative would be the DJ we had at the Blue Moon. He absolutely SUCKED,until my videographer stepped in and spoke to the Wedding Coordinator Assistant Tiffany. Once Tiffany came in and saw that we were not dancing, but mostly laughing at how much he sucked, the music changed and we danced the night away. The weather was absolutely perfect. I looked at the weather prior to arriving and the isolated thunderstorms and showers had me worried, but it did not rain one bit while we were there. The staff were GREAT. They helped in any way possible. I give a Big Fat "F" to Delta Vacations who ruined three of my guest booking and I had to take care of that once they arrived. Other than that, everyone goes out of their way to please you in anyway possible at the resort. 

     

    BIG SHOUT OUT TO MY PHOTOGRAPHER MERRICK COUSLEY and VIDEOGRAPHER ROBERT DUNKLEY www.dvsjamaica.com. His website only shows I think one wedding but once you contact him, he will send you another video upon your requests. Both gentlemen were my life line the day of the wedding. Professional and soooo helpful with soo much talent. I was scared initially because you don't really know people and you're hoping that what they are telling you is true. If you have any questions, just ask and will share anything that I know to help you because I've been there. I will post pics soon. Happy Planning Ladies!!!

      Hello ladies,

       

      I am looking to get married in September 2014 and am interested in using this resort. I was wondering if anyone can give me any pricing info in terms of costs for guests as well as hidden fees when booking?

            I wish I could remember,  but we never asked his name. Just make sure youre prepared. I'm glad the cost of the dj was included in the price because I would not have wanted to pay the extra.

                    Thanks for touching on this because I'm really confused by the wedding package overview. When you paid $800 to rent Calabash for $50+ people, did you also have to pay an additional cost per person for every guest over the 20 that are included in the wedding package? It's not clear to me whether the $800 space rental is flat or if I'm looking at that plus an extra $20-$45 per person depending on the property they're staying at.
