    Hey Kassi -

     

    I just kicked off my wedding planning for February 2014. As with many people on this site, I've had trouble getting in touch with the resort. This is fine for now, but I'm concerned that I may not be interpreting the package prices right. Did the resort ever send you a detailed cost statement before your wedding that let you know what the bottom cost of each event? How soon in advance did you receive that? I'm planning a wedding for 75 people so I'm concerned about what's included, what's not, etc. I don't want to be surprised too late in the process.

     

    Thanks in advance for your help! You sound like an expert on this stuff. Also if you have any details you're willing to send me, my email is johnni.rodgers@gmail.com

      Are there any other similar events coming up? I have a ton of Iberostar Rose Hall questions.

        I am getting married August 2014 at the Suites! I know it is early to get a response from the WC so is there any other way to find out about vendor fees?

         

        Thanks! Happy planning!

          Hello all

           

          I just wanted to stop by and say hi.

          We have finally decided on the venue (RHS) and will be booking the date (7/15/2014) shortly. It's a weekday so hopefully it will be open....

          I have got so much helpful information on BDW already that I'm excited to be a regular now that we know where we will hold the special event!

           

          Tara

            We just sent in the Wedding Request Form today and waiting to hear back from IRHS with the info on making deposits and what-not.

            So excited!

            I went and did my very first bridal shop visit....and got some ideas.

            My DF and I originally were planning on waiting to do STD until October but we think we will send it out in July so that people have more time to start saving/reserving/start paying and so on.

              Hi Tara,

               

              Did you hear back from IRHS? How is the planning and communication going? They are one of the resorts I am considering for next year.

                Hi pzl101

                 

                We are booked for July 15, 2014.

                We actually went couple weeks ago to visit the site, met with WC and manager. It was awesome. BEAUTIFUL too!

                Their communication isn't stellar but I know they are super busy and usually don't start getting really active with you until about a month or couple wks before the wedding.

                So far... I have booked

                  YES. I want to get an early start also. If I can give my guest more than 12 months to plan that would be AWESOME!!!!

                    How did you pay for your deposit? How long did it take for a confirmaiton on your date? What's the next step?? I know you are excited!!!!

                      Happy planning!

                      Thank You!!! I will be sure to shop around!!!!
