Hi @@WesnKris Im hoping to get married in the Rose hall area on 04/24/15. We are currently looking at the aqueduct for our venue, but are not sure about our reception. Have you done a site tour of the Iberostar hotels? Also, do you have a wedding planner or will you doing all of the planning? I don't know where to begin :)Thanks so much for your help!

@@skelly0386...I did a site visit to Iberostar Grand and Rose Hall.  Very nice accommodations. My issue was I like the wedding location Rose Hall and the reception location at Grand....however, you can't switch up.  You have to do both the ceremony and the reception at the same hotel.  So I am now looking at Secrets and Royalton White Sands because based on the pics I like there ceremony and reception locations better.  I am going on another site visit June 6th so I will post pictures.

Thank  you @@FutureMrsGlover! We will be having our wedding at the aqueduct and reception at the Iberostar Grand. We went on a site tour of the Grand and I did not like their ceremony options, so we decided to just have our reception at the port maria restaurant and wedding offsite. We put down the deposit and everything seems to be falling in place. Good luck with your June 6th visit :)

Hey everyone! My fiancée and I have booked our wedding at the Suites for October 24th, 2015! I am so excited!

So far I am looking into outside photographers as the resort photographers prices are outrageous for what you get. I have received my save the dates and will be mailing those out next week! I haven't decided on details like ceremony location or reception yet bc it all depends on our final guest count. We really want a beach reception but I've heard stories of being too windy etc so I am sort of skeptical on that.

How is everyone on the planning process? I had my invitation saved online but I guess it's gone now :( I searched through hundreds of invites on the site I had it saved from but no luck :( I've chosen a new invitation though, will probably be mailing those out at the beginning of the year. I've been thinking about decor and things but haven't made any final decisions. I'm also waiting to go dress shopping so I can go with my mom back home in Boston. Since we decided to not have a bridal party, I'm finding it hard to pick a color theme! I really love coral and teal so I may try to find a few things in those colors to add to the ceremony decor. I've seen some brides with colored sashes they brought for the chairs and little starfish attached. Anyone know where I can find those? They're so cute.

@@helenk its so funny. You're the one with the date lol

 

I choose that date and had to change to the day before because it was booked. I never imagined that it would be book so early.

 

You can get sashes from tablecloth factory. They usually have anywhere for 20-35%off. The stars you can get from micahels, oriental trading, i dont know if you live near a bealls outlet, hobby lobby.

@@helenk yep will be there at the same time.

 

I'm using allinclusiveoutlet.com as my agent 3nights @$540 pp w/$50 deposit and $178 for each addl night.

 

This includes transportation to and from the airport/hotel. I haven't signed a contract just because I'm trying too see If there are any lower agents out there

@@helenk ,

 

Yea there photographers don't provide quality pictures so stay away. We took some from them when we went on vaca and let's just say that my Nikon took better pics.

 

I'm think I'm going to bring my own from florida

I'm using a travel agent/wedding coordinator through modern destination weddings. It's a free service, you only pay a $100 deposit, which goes towards your travel expenses. They help you coordinate with the resort, sort of like a middle man and are going to be helping with booking the travel at the lowest rates available for us and our guests and also with booking our honeymoon. The rates for flights aren't up yet so I don't have any quotes. When I was deciding on resorts I went onto Cheapcaribbean.com to get pricing ideas for that time of year and it had said about $950 pp for 3 nights (fri-mon) including flights from boston/NY (majority of our guests will be flying out from those cities).

@@jennifernoel1 We booked an outside photographer based in Jamaica. I read bad reviews on digipix and their prices were too pricey for what you get.

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
