Our wedding will be on the beach and Rosy told me that would take 30 minutes. After that we are moving to the terrace for a cocktail/canapes reception for two hours. After the reception, we have dinner reservations for our attendees at the steakhouse when it opens at 6:30. We are using the hotel photographer. They have been great to work with and have been very responsive. The company is Vallarta Adventures. For the most part, we want things to be informal so I might not be as picky as some on the photography and flowers. I'm still nervous that everything will work out as I have it planned! We have 45 guests. 4 are not staying at the Iberostar but we were able to purchase day passes for them. At this point, everything seems to be in place but I'm still uncertain what to expect with the ceremony, reception, and dinner. If anyone has additional insight, I'd love to hear it!

Hi! I just got back from a site inspection at the Iberostar Cancun and I booked my wedding there for February 2014. I met with Rosy a couple times and the resort is absolutely gorgeous! I can try to answer any questions you may have and I would love the exchange ideas with other Iberostar brides!!! - Rachel

Just got some information back from rosie on our wedding and everything seems to be going according to plan.. just still looking for a photographer.. emailed a bunch who are already booked. waiting on a couple responses back. You said you are using the hotel photographer? how much are they charging if you don't mind me asking. also, were you able to check out their portfolio or anything they have taken before?

Hi Ladies, thanks for starting this thread. I am looking to have our wedding in Jan-Feb 2014 and would love to get as much info as possible about the hotel. I love the hotel for a bunch of reasons: close to the airport, tons of flights, huge premisses with tons of activities, kids/teens friendly and the most important - 1 wedding a day. i still have a bunch of questions thou...
1. Does anyone know approx prices for 3 or 7 nights? I understand that price fluctuates, but i would appreciate if you can share what estimates you were given.
2. The Gold package doesn't seem to include that much. Is there a price list for extras? I can't seem to find it online.
3. Is the beach ceremony possible. I would like to have the ceremony on the beach barefoot (kinda a girl's dream )
4. I read at the website that the dinner is only available in one of the restaurants for 1.5 hours, which is not enough for us. Do you know if the separate area is available, where we can stay for a while dancing, eating and drinking? Preferably separate form general public.
5. This is personal, so please do not feel offended and please ignore it if you don't like to answer: What is your budget?
Again, congratulations on everyone's engagements and coming weddings and thank you for all your help and assistance!!!

@zaya you can get married on the beach because that's what i am doing. I don't know much on their packages because i am making up my own and just being charged for what i want. To have your reception in a private area you do get charged a per person rate depending on what menu options you pick. it's for up to 3 hrs (inside in one of there conference rooms or outside on the terrace) and if you want to extend it another hour or 2 you pay an additional charge. You also need to pay for a dj and dance floor separately if you want that as well. You would need to speak to rosie and she can help you with all of the prices and information. My orginal budget was $10,000 but it looks like it is going over but that is for everything from start to finish and our vacation as well. It is definitely a great deal and better than anything we could get in the states. i am hoping no more than $12,000 but we will see.. things add up very fast. hahaha
@rfl100.. you said you just got back from there, did you see any weddings set up on the beach? if so, how did it look? how was the food? i hear mix reviews on the food on trip advisor. Also, how was the nightlife there. i am having my wedding this may and bringing about 60 guests.. most are between the ages of 28-40. we obviously want to go and relax but also party a night or two.
if anyone has any other questions i can help them with please feel free to ask. i still have some myself.. lol.. This has been a horrible experience for me because when i started my planning iberostar just took over hilton and i went through 3 coordinators before i got rosie and now everything has been great with her. so try to just relax and enjoy this whole experience. = )

ohh very nice. what was the price they gave you on the 2 hour cocktail and how many canapes? where are you having it set up at? i am being charged for the dinner at the hibachi but i think it's because i extended the time. An hour and a half isn't enough for 60 of us to eat. I just emailed the photographer at the hotel so hopefully they get back to me soon. Also,, since you're getting married so close could you please show us some pictures and give us some reviews/tips when you get back. Thank you so much and i am sure the trip and your wedding will be absolutely perfect!! the place is gorgeous! congrats!!!
