hey ladies! just wondering, how far in advance are you all booking your accomodations? I don't want to book too early (my wedding date is July 2013), but I'm so anxious to have it booked already! also, are most people going thru a travel agent? I had planned to do that and got price quotes, but it's so much cheaper online! which I think will be much more attractive to many of my guests.....

Hi Everyone,

Just saying "hello" to the future Iberostar Rose Hall Beach brides.  We just solidified our date; 10/15/2013. 

We just received our Save-the-dates. Do you think mailing out the Save-the-dates 12Months in advance is enough notice for the guests?

 

FYI, I got save the date magnets from http://www.agiftfulheart.com/ They came out awesome.  Definitely check out their website.  Many beach templates available.  It was great for me because I'm not "girly" enough to make my own specific design.  Although that is an option.

I can't wait to send them out.

Congrats on getting the date finalized!

 

I sent out our save the dates about 13-14 months out. I wanted to make sure the people who wanted to join us had the time to plan for the trip and start saving. I did magnets as well and it's great to see them on the fridge at relatives houses :)

We are using a travel agent, who is booking everyone with a FunJet group discount. The pricing doesn't seem to be much different than what I would find online on my own, except with the travel agent we get the group discount (about $100 per reservation) and a few extra perks (one reservation free for every 20 that book, return accommodations a year after the wedding, etc). It's just easier to direct everyone to a single source for booking their travel.

 

The flights came out about 10 months prior to our wedding date. We booked early, and I am glad we did as we were able to get better flight options than what is currently out there. I am actually having a tough time finding an acceptable flight for our photographer that doesn't involve a 10 hour layover someplace, and at a reasonable price.

Hi Krista,

 

I'm jealous that you have your dress already! I won't be looking for mine until mid-October. My understanding is that you can have a private reception if you want, but you will have to pay for it. I don't have the price sheet in front of me, but I think it's around $800. And you do get a welcome/rehearsal dinner if you want one. I chose to have mine at the Japanese restaurant since I thought it would be fun and casual.

 

The colors I am using are orange, pink, fuchsia. I am using real touch flowers and once I found a bouquet I liked, I used that as my color palette. I don't have a picture of MY bouquet, but I have a picture of my maid of honor's below. I liked the fact that I could hold onto the flowers after the wedding and keep them with our wedding photos.

You can find all this info and pics on there wedding website:

 

http://www.weddingsbyiberostar.com/iberostar_rose_hall_wedding_packages.htm

 

 

Pictures of the Bouquets are here:  (Pg 2)  From all the pics I have seen of actually weddings, they seem to be fairly close. More tropical colors like pinks, roses, oranges, etc.

You could contact Tai Flora and see if they could include the colors you want (If it uses the same flowers, I'm sure they can make a bouquet for you). Aqua might be the tricky party ad I don't think its one of there standard flowers..so you may have to upgrade it.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
