    Hi Jnunez! I'll be getting married 2 weeks after you on April 27th :)  I am planning to take my centerpiece candles with me in my luggage - same reason, Tai Flora's quotes were too high for me. She was charging $45/centerpiece and I was able to pick up the items for $12/centerpiece. Last time I traveled to Mexico, I picked up a gel candle in the airport and had it in my carry on not realizing we had to go through security again once we had our layover in the US. They told me I could put it in my checked luggage, just not my carry on (because of the gel). But since they were the ones that mentioned to put it in checked luggage, I guess there is no problem with candles.

      hey guys!


      I didnt know that Trisha left......That kinda stresses me out, I think they should of atleast emailed us to let us know who was taking over for our wedding and helping with the planning and what not.....Tai Flora I emailed her once about flowers and it took her forever to respond to me...so I decided to bring my own flowers. Does anyone know if there are restrictions for the airplane for having your bouquet as a carry on? or any restrictions about having the wish lanterns in your checked baggage?

        Is your bouquet actual flowers, or are you using fake flowers? I am bringing my bouquet, but it is a real touch bouquet (fake flowers). I have seen other posts that mention you can't take flowers on the plane OUT of Jamaica, so I would think there may be similar issues with bringing them into the country if they are real. But you could give your airline a call to verify. They should also know about the wish lanterns.

          We are going to take fake flowers with us, its alittle bit more price effiecient for us and I hate to spend all that money and not be able to bring any part of my flowers home with me for a keepsake :( I cant believe how fast the time is going 7 months and we will be in jamaica and married!!!! Yet I have sssooo much to do!!!! We are just now working on the invitations to send them out in December so everyone can start making thier travel arrangements....

            Hi Brides,

            Congrats all Brides and great choice of Resort and Destination.

            I am getting married on March 7 2013.  At the Beach resort.

            I have as well as my TA have been in contact with the resort going on about a year now.  They have been nothing but wonderful to deal with.

            Don't worry about the ever changing names of the WC at the resort the all do very good job of passing all the information along.  (trust me Ive asked a million times)

            Also don't worry if they or Tia Flora does not get back to you right away,  they tend to deal with the details of your wedding much closer to the date the wedding vendors back home.  I have had at least 4 people I know get married at one of the 3 Iberostar locations in Montego Bay and they have had nothing but good things to say about their wedding experience.

            If you have any questions I will try my best to answer them.  I am busy planning all the little details right now and am finding this website very helpful.

            Good Luck Everyone and Happy Planning

              Hello ladies, I have a question for the resort'S DJ. Does anyone know if the DJ just plays the music or if he is a MC as well? And also does he announce the first dance or just the play song?

                I was wondering this as well. Had anyone heard anything about the resort DJ? I was hoping he'd be an MC as well.

                  I read somewhere in the "Iberostar Rose Hall Brides-post all info/questions here" that the wc told to a fellow bride that the DJ can be an MC as well, but because of his accent, it can be hard to understand what he says!  The wc told her that if someone of her entourage was willing to make annoucements, she recommended to go this route.  But it may depend of who will be the DJ...there's certainly more than 1 DJ for the whole resort...?

                      Welcome! I am getting married shortly after you on April 27 and will be arriving on April 24, also at the Beach. It's going to come up so quick! I already submitted the details sheet to the resort, but it sounds like the WC reviews everything with you on-site anyways and I'll probably check that they have everything set sometime in March just to confirm. So I have been focusing more on the items that I have control over such as our attire, flowers (I'm bringing real touch bouquets & bouts), centerpieces for Uncle Tony's reception (I'm bringing the items for ours as it was a less expensive than renting through Tai Flora), our pre-travel packet, and finalizing details for our at home reception. We have a smaller group going, probably 15-20 people. What time are you planning to hold your ceremony? I was originally going to have it at 5pm, but my photographer seemed concerned about the amount of time for pictures before the sun sets. I have decided to move the time up to 4:30pm to be safe.
