Iberostar Grand Rose Hall 2013 Brides

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

 

I'm just returning from the Grand and the wedding was amazing!  Janielle and Syrecka are both absolutely wonderful.  They have everything under control!  We scanned and emailed our notarized documents to them about 1-2 months prior to the wedding and even sent a few last minute details via email to them while at the resort and despite some of my last minute additions, everything turned out perfectly.

 

We got married in the dome and it provided excelled acoustics for the ceremony.  Our officiant was wonderful and he kept the mood light while still making sure the importance of our union was recognized.  Janielle came and picked up my wedding dress and the grooms suit three days prior to the wedding and also worked with the butler staff to ensure that all of the wedding parties dresses/suits were pressed in time for the event.  Janielle also picked up the decorations for the ceremony and reception the night before and made sure they were set up exactly as we asked.  

 

My husband celebrated his birthday while we were there and she arranged for a semi-private dinner at the Japanese restaurant for our friends and family and even came in with a cake and balloons for his special day.  The rehearsal dinner was also planned to perfection and Janielle and Syrecka assisted in the Meet and Greet prior to that event and made sure that everyone was escorted to the Surf and Turf for dinner.  

 

There is a new process in place where the Public Relations Manager for Iberostar will be filtering all emails/correspondence for all three resorts and the Wedding Coordinators will not have direct contact until 45 days prior to the wedding.  I'm glad I was able to meet and correspond with Janielle and Syrecka prior to my wedding because it only helped to establish the close relationship that we now share.  Brides, please be sweet to these ladies and rest assured that they have your best interests at heart.  Aside from saying "I DO", having my wedding at this resort and working with these ladies was the best decision I've ever made.  Feel free to ask questions and I'll be more than happy to answer them all.

 

Happy Planning and Best Wishes!

 

Dani

I don't get married at the Grand until 2014, but it's reassuring to hear that everything goes smoothly once you are there! I'm a little confused because I received my wedding date confirmation from Angellie, but when I just emailed her I got a response from Syrecka directing me to contact Ms. Loreto Lazo who is the wedding director. Did you have any contact with Loreto? I'm wondering if she is new?

Hi DaniScales2b, Congrats to you and your husband! I am planning to marry there in May 2014. I have a few questions. What route did you take with travel arrangements for your guest? Where did they stay? If they stayed at the suites or beach..how did you handle the day pass fees? I have 50+ guests and that fee adds a couple thousand to the already hefty price to pay! Where did you do your ceremony and reception at? What areas did you feel needed extra/your own decoration?

Hi 1stmarriage,

 

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!  We used a local travel agent and we were able to get money back for each person that booked through her once the final deadline had been reached.  Make sure you chose a travel agent that works well for you.  I had great communication with mine and even when she was off, there was someone answering her emails/phone calls which was great for me and our guests.  

 

We had four guests staying at the Suites and 4 guests staying at another resort completely.  We had a total of 46 people (including ourselves) and had our rehearsal dinner at the Surf and Turf restaurant and our reception at the Port Maria.  We originally planned for our rehearsal dinner to take place at the Suites so we wouldn't have to pay for the day pass for the Suites guests, but our wedding coordinator and property manager were able to work it out so we could hold it at the Grand with no fee.  We did have to pay for our guests staying at another resort to attend both days (rehearsal dinner and wedding day).  These fees are added to your final bill.  The Port Maria was a little warm so we didn't do much dancing at the actual reception.  After dinner and a few dances, we all went to change and met at the lobby bar for drinks before heading down to the Mango Disco where we stayed until around 2:00 - 3:00 AM.  We had so much fun!

 

We preferred to do something private for our ceremony so we held it in the dome.  I have pictures in my planning thread: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/86158/danielles-daniscales2b-planning-thread-iberostar-grand-rose-hall-montego-bay-jamaica-pic-heavy#post_1904340  I bought chair sashes and centerpieces with us in our luggage.  

 

Let me know if you have any questions and I will be more than happy to help!

 

Dani

Did any of you Iberostar brides have trouble booking your date? Did the hotel ask for photocopies of the back and front of your credit card as well as a photocopy of your photo ID just to save the date and make the deposit? I'm trying to book, but I don't feel comfortable photocopying my ID and credit card and sending the copies to a foreign country. Did anyone else do this?

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
