2015 Iberostar Rose Hall Suite Bride

Recommended Posts

@@budgetbride2015 @@helenk

 

I ended up changing TA because the deposit amount was lower. With my other TA i needed $1000.00 deposit. Each TA is different, some require $150.00 deposit per person. Thank God, my guest only has to pay $50.00 per person. 

 

I like working with him better because his son was married there so he know's all about Iberostar. He's very efficient and responds immediately.

 

You can tell which agents have connections with the hotel. I have spokent to at least 5 TAs and emailed at least 10.

 

The $500 deposit locks in the room rates for all 10 rooms but is applied to my room. 

 

***And make sure you guys know that if you get 20 rooms booked your room  is free. (At least to at a certain point, it depends on the average length that the guest stay.

I just got my rates for next year but Mark didn't mention anything about the room being free if we book at least 20 rooms

Well I've been working on our invitations....I am waiting until our package prices are quoted to us to mail them out so we can include deposit amounts, etc. I am definitely going to put an early deadline date for deposits so we don't run into this problem hopefully! I used to think about the possibility of not getting alot of people to book, but honestly, less is definitely more money in our pockets! We aren't stressing anymore. The people that really want to be there will! It's about the couple anyway :)

Hi Everyone - If you don't mind sharing, I'm wondering what the resort is offering you as booking incentives. My travel agent is saying that every 21st person is free, which is great, but my concern is about how they determine the amount. She said that it is based on the "lowest room category booked for the shortest length of stay." This is somewhat disappointing because we have 80 guests coming that will stay between 5-7 nights, but we have a couple people with family in Jamaica who might only stay at the resort 2 nights.

 

So if we have 75 people who stay 5 nights, and 4 people who stay 2 nights our discount is still based on the 2 nights. I just think an average would be way more fair given the number of people we are bringing (and money we are spending). 

 

I thought I'd throw it out there to see if that is consistent with what you are getting? Maybe I can negotiate :) THANK YOU!!

Hi!@@beckys98 I am getting married at the grand on April 25th and am having the same problem. We have 70 confirmed guest who are all staying 5 days except for 2 people. We were also told that single occupancy does not count toward our incentive. It's really disappointing :( I'm going to iberostar this weekend to see if there is anything that they can do On their end. please let me know if your able to negotiate. Congratulations!

@@skelly0386 from my understanding it's for every 20 paying adult so single occupancy should count. Also according to my TA I can't book 2 nights its a 3 nights minimum so it shouldn't mess up your incentives. The resort doesn't book rooms for US residents but they can give u upgrades and incentives once your there

What are you ladies doing about flowers and decorating? At first i was going to bring all my decorations but then I found this AMAZING and I do mean AMAZING wedding designer Godfrey Guy. He's a life saver I have totally stepped back and given him full control. He's decorating my ceremony and reception as well as cocktail hour. He's also doing all the bouquets He is EXTREMELY reasonable and creative. He replies to EVERY email right away and calls me any time I need him. Hes been in contact with me since August when I first reached out to him. Now I know our contract says no outside florist but he does weddings at iberostar all the time (he's constantly emailing me pics) u just may have to pay the vendor fee for him to get onto the property. He doesn't have a a website but he does have a FB page. And from one wedding coordinator to the next he's absolutely wonderful. He's made wedding planning a breeze.....which I am so grateful because I just had a baby and I'll be going back to work soon #yikes ...if anyone is interested his email is godfreyguy1@yahoo.com tell him Kina referred you. He's definitely worth reaching out to because the contracted florist is ridiculously priced. My wedding is 6 months away can't wait....oh heads up his accent is really strong and my family is Jamaican and I still have a hard time sometimes... Lol! Also he will want a deposit right away to reserve your flowers... It seems skeptical at first let's face it its a stranger your sending money to but trust me this man lives and breathes weddings ...lol

Hey All,  I am a 2015 Bride who is less than 2 months out, March 23rd at the Suites location with roughly 70 people traveling from the states and a handful from Kingston.  Jesus take the wheel!  We are completely the "Last Wedding Details" form now and I am really thinking about the decor.  Thanks @@budgetbride2015 for the tip about Godfrey.  I wanted to know if he's priced reasonable?  My FI and I are balling on a budget.  

 

Lastly, has anyone heard anything about the presidential suite?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
