  1. Hey everyone, I have to say I am shocked to hear some of these reviews. My husband and I got married at Azul Sensatori last July, used The Wedding Holiday, and had the wedding of our dreams. Right from the beginning, my whole family found The Wedding Holiday very welcoming, warm, and inviting. We had no idea where we wanted to go, and they quickly narrowed places down for us based on our interests and concerns. They got us a very good quote, much better than other travel agents. They made save the date invites for us (free), and were extremely accommodating when we asked for changes to be made to suit us better. I was never under the impression that they are "wedding planners". My understanding is that they are travel agents who have much more knowledge on resorts that specialize in weddings than a regular TA, and are in contact with the wedding planners at the resorts, so they are able to give more and better advice than other TA's. We found that they were very quick to email us or return calls. We would often drop in unannounced, and they always made themselves readily available. We experienced a few bumps along the road, and if we didn't have the Wedding Holiday, I'm not sure they would have been resolved to our satisfaction. We had our wedding booked for July 2nd a year in advance. About 2.5 months before our wedding, our airline went bankrupt which meant we had to change our flight date, which meant we had to change our wedding date. This was very upsetting to me, and created problems for my guests who had planned their vacation around leaving on a certain day. Lorraine did everything she could to resolve this problem. Unfortunately, there was nothing that could be done about getting a flight on the day we wanted, however, The Wedding Holiday, out of their own pocket, refunded all of our 45 guests $300, moved my husband and I to first class, offered to order us brand new invitations (not save the dates) because I was upset that our invitations that we purchased had the old wedding date, and upgraded our suite at the hotel. We had an issue with the resort going back on a photographer policy as well. We had booked a photographer outside of their venue, and then they changed their policy saying the photographer had to be with their venue. I went to Lorraine with this problem and she was on the phone so fast with whoever was in charge at the resort demanding that we use the photographer we requested, and it ended up working out. It was much easier having The Wedding Holiday communicate with the resort on our behalf rather than us having to try and get a hold of them and deal with it. Once we got to the resort, it was amazing. Lorraine was in contact with me through email and phone to make sure everything was ok. The Wedding Holiday even surprised us with a cocktail party they ordered at the resort, which we were not expecting. I would definitely recommend using The Wedding Holiday. They have way more knowledge than any other regular TA. Please email me with any questions. meghanpatchell@hotmail.com
  2. The system charges your ipod while it is plugged in. We brought our portable charger just in case though. We also had our laptops so when we plugged it in it would charge. People can get away with nice shorts, and definitely jeans. The only thing they were strict about was wearing a bathing suit in the restaurants.
  3. Day passes are around $75, however, if you have a private reception, there is no fee for the day pass (we were not informed about this until we actually got to the resort). If you have the dinner at the Spoon for your reception (which is no charge) then day passes do need to be purchased.
  4. Hey, I got married in July, and you do not need to bring your own ipod docking station. Any ipod works with their system. We rented the sound equipment and hooked our ipod up. Sound was fantastic! The wedding coordinator even took care of our ipod for us (stopping it during speeches, taking requests, etc...). No complaints.
  5. Hey everyone, I haven't been on here in sooo long! I just got my photos from Erik Rodriguez, and I love them. If anyone would like to see them, add me on facebook (meghan yao), and ask any questions as well. It's easier for me to answer questions on fb then scrolling through all these posts lol.
  6. Hi amcferron, I would go with Zavaz Plaza because I think it is more private. We didn't see a single outsider during our reception. I also liked it because it is right by a pool and completely outdoors. Zocola Terrace is private, but there is a restaurant right indoors where everyone else at the resort can go to. There is for sure dancing room at Zocola Terrace, but I think the set up is way better at Zavaz Plaza, with the round dance floor.
  7. Hey Beaz2be, I do not think spending the money on a cocktail party is worth it at all. We got married on the beach, and then had our reception at Zavaz Plaza. They had a little bar set up right there, so everyone was able to drinks while we had our photos done (we were not told that this would happen so it was a nice surprise!). When guests got to the resort, we gave them a program saying what time they needed to be at Zavaz Plaza for the reception. So, if people chose to go to their rooms or walk on the beach instead of going right to zavaz plaza, they knew what time to be back for. Everyone was there on time, and everyone got to have drinks at the location while we had our photos done. I would have been upset if I had paid for a cocktail reception knowing that all our guests were able to get drinks at our reception location anyway!

I don't want to wear full on stiletto heels, but am planning to get an ever-so-slight kitten heel or wedge. Tho' I'm generally quite comfortable in heels I am one of those people who always manages to get my heel caught in boardwalks etc. and am curious if I should avoid the small kitten heel altogether. (Already having visions of tripping down the aisle - not a comforting mental image). I had the wooden runner with aqua coloured fabric on top. I wore sandals, and had no problem walking. I think little heels would be fine. Quote: Originally Posted by amandamarieb Hi Ladies - I am sneaking on here at work again today so I have to keep it short.

I was looking at your photos on FB. Thye are just amazing. I noticed you had some small children attend. I will have 3 toddlers all between 1 and 2, one being my own little guy. I wanted to see if you or your guests used the oniste babysitting and if so, what your experience was. Anyone you really liked or could recommend? Also, how were the latterns hung up at the Zvaz plaza? I don't want to do latterns but was thinking of hanging little candle holders. Maybe something lke these: Wire and Glass 12" Juliet Hanging Candle Holder $6.99 each Do you think that would work? Thanks so much! No one used the babysitting, but the kids moms raved about the play areas for the kids. The service there is so wonderful, that I couldn't imagine the babysitting being anything less than wonderful. We did not have to do a single thing with the lanterns. We went there thinking we would have to put them together, but the coordinator did everything, without us even telling them how. I think they used fishing wire to hang the lanterns, but not 100% sure. I'm pretty sure they can figure out a way to hang the lanterns you like....they really do anything.

I've been able to have my own class for the past 2 years, but I need to reapply for jobs each summer....which sucks and is really stressful.

I was definitely doing the no more rain dance for you. I love the short video you have posted on the Facebook. I cannot wait till to see more pictures. Congrats! That is so awesome that your TA arranged a cocktail party for you guys. What a great surprise! I am jealous I also have Erick Rodriguez. I was wondering what you thought about him. I am very excited to work with him. How many hours did you have him? I would like to talk to you more about Erick. Did you do a TTD session? I am working on my OOT bag - so far I have beach towel (with embroidery) & hand sanitizer. Oh boy... I have a lot to do. For wedding favor - I bought maracas. I am planning to put a tag on saying "Instead of tapping on your glass, here is a system with Mexican Class. Stand and shake with all your might to see the groom kiss his bride tonight." Something I saw other brides did for their wedding and I thought it would be fun Chong Hey Chong, We absolutely LOVED Erik. My fiance and his bm are really into photography and they were super impressed with him. He made us feel really relaxed, and definitely knew what he was doing. We saw some pictures on his camera and were amazed with them. I don't have a single negative thing to say about him. We had him for only 3.5 hours, and I think 4.5 probably would have been perfect. I think I would have gotten him an hour before the ceremony...i only had him 20 minutes before. We did not do a TTD...to expensive for us.

Does anyone know if the additional/unlimited chairs is only for the silver package or does it apply to the lower packages/pearl package as well? This is very helpful. Thanks Meghan. Can I ask, did you do the paper lanterns totally DIY (ie. the whole LED lights/batteries taped together kind of thing) or did you use those LED tealights? I'm worried about how finicky or complicated it might be to do them DIY once we're down there. Advice?!? THe wedding coordinator set everything up for us when we got there. We got tea lights, but they were not strong enough. We couldn't even tell a light was on. I would get LED lights, however, it still looked nice with no light. The wedding coordinator put them all together and taped everything together. They charge a total of $50 for all setups, which I think is worth it.
  11. Someone asked about paper lanterns, but I can't remember who it was. We brought 22 lanterns down and I think it was the perfect number. We got 8", 10" 14" and 16" (I think).
  12. Amanda, 70 people will fit, although it may be a little tight. we had 50 people and I would say it was the perfect size for 50. 70 people on the dance floor altogether will be squishy, but I would guess that most of the time, some people will be sitting or doing other things other than dancing, so you probably won't have 70 on the floor altogether.

OK....so sorry to cut that short but I just recieved an email from my TA that my WC has been replaced. So not that I was the biggest fan of my AS WC (Tiffany) but now I am worried that everything that she's confirmed is going to get lost somewhere and I will have to spend hours digging through emails and such to catch my new WC or prove that I deals that I've been able to negotitate with Tiffany. Maybe I am freaking for no reason, but you ladies all know how it is. I am sure one of you will tell me not to worry and that's exactly why I came here first! So thanks in advance! I also wanted to see if anyone has worked with or is working with my new WC, Carolina and what your thoughts are about her. Please share if you don't mind. Thanks so much! We got married married at sensatori. Quote: Originally Posted by thefuturemrslutz I totally understand how you feel...I have lists for lists for lists!!!!

He said it is high season right now, and has to use photoshop. We saw some on his camera and they looked amazing! It's gotta be six weeks by now for you, isn't it?
  15. Thank you for all the wonderful compliments! We have to wait 6 weeks for our professional photos...it's making me crazy!

Did any of you switch TAs and is there any special etiquette for doing it? It comes down to price for me...and I don't want my sister's friend to do all this work for nothing...so if she can save me $$$ I would switch....Thanks I used the Wedding Holiday, like Nicole. No one could find better rates and they don't charge any additional fee to use them. They were so fantastic. They even surprised me by getting us a cocktail party. When we were in Mexico, the wedding coordinator told us that the Wedding holiday bought us a cocktail party...I don't think many other TAs would do that.

Too bad if I were you, I'd want to crash that bachelors weekend tho!! meghan - Welcome back MRS!!! I'm glad you had a great time. I know it was a little rocky at one point but it all paid off if you had a flawless wedding. Can't wait to see pics!! Was the WC at your reception the whole time to work the iPod? Thanks! The WC was at the wedding the whole time, but she did not work the ipod. They are actually not allowed to touch your ipod for liability reasons. However, the sound system guy was there the whole time and he worked the ipod. If we ever wanted different songs put on, we would just go up to the ipod and switch it ourselves. But he was good at turning it down or off when speeches were being made and such.
  17. Hey everyone, we are back and soooo happy!! Thank you all for the good wishes...we had AMAZING weather! We flew into a storm and every day just got better and better. Our wedding day was actually the only day that we had not one drop of rain. We didn't think we could get married on the beach the day before our wedding, because it was sooooo windy, but the night before the wedding coordinator told us it would be great, and it was. It was the most beautiful day ever and I want to do it all again! I"m so tired right now, so I'm going to be short, but all I can say is it is a FANTASTIC place to get married. No one has any reason to worry at all. I will post pictures as soon as I get some from friends. If anyone wants to add me on facebook to see pics, please do (meghan yao!)

We were going to use our iPods but that's making me nervous now for some reason. we used an ipod and it was amazing. I would not spend the money on a DJ. The wedding coordinator acted as an MC, but my brother did as well and he was amazing. We also did not have to operate the ipod. The sound system guy did. Sound system was fantastic! I was quite impressed actually, and I good music was really important to me. Everyone danced and rocked out right till we were cut off at 11. Quote: Originally Posted by katken I think it is called Zavaz Plaza. The other thatched roof area was not available for my reception. I don't know if the rules have changed or not for that. When I was there they had lounge type furniture there and they would not remove it to set up a reception. The blue glasses were just there. I wasn't super picky about the table set up so I didn't specify that at all. In fact, if I remember correctly I think those are the standard water glasses at the tables in the restaurants too. It is Zavaz Plaza. That is where we had our reception, and we had the blue glasses as well. We asked to have that other thatched roof area, but they do not allow people to use it for private events anymore. Quote: Originally Posted by TLGnhci Oh, a few more questions!

I think it is $9 per covered chair, and $4 dollars for each bow. Not sure what the cost is for uncovered chairs...maybe $4? we didn't have additional lighting, and didn't need it. The sound system is $250, but we rented it for an extra hour and a half to take us to 11 pm for another $75. $325 in total....super good sound!
  18. Hey Ladies! We have been at the resort for 3 days now....and it has been crappy weather...but it is a beautiful resort. We flew into a storm. It is getting better each day, so please, please, PLEASE, keep your fingers crossed for us that it doesn't rain on Thursday! Even though it has been raining a lot, it is still super gorgeous. Our travel agent, The Wedding holiday, was super nice and got us a private cocktail reception (not at our expense) so that was a lovely surprise when we met with the wedding coordinators today. I will keep you updated as to how everything goes...I am in my room as I have had a little too much to drin'k!! lol it is my bedtime. Quote: Originally Posted by amybermuda For the dinner included in the wedding package, I used that for my "welcome dinner".

If you use that meal for your reception, know it is not a private event and I am not sure the extent they can decorate for you. There will also not be an area of rmusic & speeches designated. Of course if you have a small group, you can always do speeches at the table - and Azul will give you a private area of the dining room - you just dont get the entire thing. We had our welcome dinner yesterday. It was a set menu, which we could not change, but it was delicious and everyone loved it! THey spelle dmy last name wrong on the menu cards that were set out at each place setting, so they brought in a harpest to make up for it. They are wonderufl and fixing mistakes and compensating you. We had a cesear salad, potato soup, and choice between chicken or beef, and cheese cake for dessert. Everything was soooo good, except for the cheese cake, but we just went and got different desserts from the buffet.

Anyways, anyone who has been married there, I am thinking of having my reception in the area by the pools and I was wondering if anyone had had their reception here, if so, what kind of lighting was supplied if any. I am not wanting big center peices and I remember one bride saying she didn't have center peices and they put candles on the table anyways. There is a thatched roof structure and I was wondering if they put any lighting under there or do I need to ask(and pay) for that. Thanks!! That is where we are having our reception if the rain stays away. They don't provide additional lighting unless you pay for it. I have heard they put tea lights out as well, but my online wedding coordinator told me they cost money, so we brought our own anyway. We are paying for tiki torches to provide additional lighting.

In addition to that stupidity I had one couple call my TA to book a room and by the time she called them back they told her they booked straight through the hotel! The final payments for the rooms were due May 21st. I've had 3 more people book through the hotel since then and more people still saying they want to come. I've already made my payments for food at the receptions and the chairs so I told FI that if anybody else decides to come they won't be able to sit at the ceremony or have food at the reception or get a OOT bag. I can't keep making adjustments this close to the wedding because people decided to procrastinate! We had a guest put a deposit down, and cancel. We also just had 4 guests book in 24 hours of leaving! I think we are at 50...not even sure! Quote: Originally Posted by daniepps Ok so my final payment was due to the resort on June 16th.

Not to mention we planned our date to coincide with their date, are using them as our witnesses at our legal JOP wedding and using their champagne glasses from their wedding at our wedding for the toasts. What the hell? Anyway...it's good to vent! Congrats on those whose weddings are coming up!!! Looking forward to hearing all about it! 4 Sooo sorry you are having to deal with that. I think many of us know how that feels, and it's real crappy. I have learned which family and friends are really important in my life from this wedding planning. I think that is completely ridiculous that they ask why you are willing to "sacrifice them being present at your wedding". Why don't they answer why they will sacrifice not coming to your wedding?! Feel free to vent away....you need to!

I was in our living room alone, made a margarita for myself, drank half of it quickly then waited a little, once I felt relaxed, I sat down at my laptop, wrote 4 paragraphs (341 words) in less than 15 minutes. I even deleted a paragraph wedding day because I was afraid it was too long. So don't worry, you'll do great Thanks Amy! I am going to take your advice! I'll let you know how it goes!

I guess I can just blame the crazy hormones! It looks like we will be switching to Dreams Puerto Vallarta for April 2011. Our TA basically told us there was no way we could get the same rate at AS, but I'm not even sure they checked into it. Oh well... Dreams PV looks like a beautiful resort, however it really sucks starting all the plans and travel arrangments again from scratch. I've got a lot of snooping to catch up on... I can't wait to see pic's from the weddings I've miss recently... especially Amy (Kittenheart) with all of the detail you put into yours...I'm sure it was absoltely amazing! As well as everyone's else's! Good luck to all my old friends and to all the new ladies on this thread! I'll have to check back every once in a while and see how it's going! Crista Crista, I'm so happy you stopped in to say "hi"! I'm so happy you are doing well with the baby. I agree with Amy, that maybe this was all meant to be. You will be at a beautiful resort with a beautiful little baby!

I just know that you need to pay $500 if you don't use their photographer. I luckily got out of that fee...

I am paying $2000 for Erik Rodriguez, but that is only for 4 hours. I don't know how others compare. I think he is pretty good quality, and photographers I looked at to fly down with comparable quality were a lot more expensive. Wendy and Amy had good photographers who they flew down, but I don't know how much they paid....
