    Laura, I read somewhere in the thread "Iberostar Rose Hall Brides-Post all info/questions here!" that the bride/groom AND guests are allowed to take off bracelets.  But don't throw them (and inform your guests): Every personn will have to give the old bracelet to the hotel reception the next day, in order to receive a new one, otherwise there will be fees!

      I know...less than a year!!!  I also spoke with my TA recently...but we won't book for now because rates should come down...Haven't decided either on the venue...I wish the gazebo were beautiful!...but I really don't like it.

          Hi krista33 I was wondering about this as well.  I have 37  guests and I wanted to have a private reception but they wont let me.  I even offered to pay the $800 and the extra cost for 3 more people to make up 40 guest.  I wanted to do toasts as well as a slide show at dinner but WC Santena said NO I would have to do a cocktail hour sometime after ceremony in order to slide show.  If anyone knows more about dinner for example really how many non-wedding guests they will put in the restaurant with you during your dinner please share.

          June is not the off-season.  that is when kids get out of school, college kids get out of school and go on vacation.

            how do they know you have 40 guest? why dont you just say you have 40 and grab 3 random people off the beach at the resort and let them crash your wedding to make 40 if you have 37?

             

            I cant believe that you have to have 40...i hope i get that..right now we have 38...although i might let 2 crash the wedding if it means a private receiption

              We have to send a seating plan with guest names I guess I could just make some up.  I heard that most semi private dinners that brides have had they did not even notice other guests.  I am just going to do what they say and save myself the 800$ rental fee.

              michysmichy what restaurant  are you going with?   the steakhouse? If so there is a two sections in front or off to the side.  Im sure that you get the front section for wedding dinners and the side is used for non wedding guests.  I'll let you know how it goes since I'm March 7 and you're in April. :)

                You don't have to submit the seating plan until much closer to the date. Maybe if you wait a few months you can get the names of some brides on here, to meet your numbers ;-)

                  Hi Jreist thanks that's a good idea. I think we're going to save the 800$ go for non-private and just do a cocktail party after our ceremony. Its cheaper and I think I've grown on the idea since it will give us a chance to do some sunset pictures while everyone else is enjoying some delicious drinks. I really appreciate all the info you've been posting you've be a great help to me and all the other brides. Your date is coming up soon I can't wait to hear about your magical day :)
