  1. I'm a Maybe. It all depends on who the vendors are at the resort. If they're good then it's not a problem. However, in our case we were very underwhelmed with the resort photography choices, so we paid a fee to bring someone in from the outside. Had we not been able to, it would have been a deal breaker.
  2. I did know about it but quickly wrote it off because we couldn't afford it. Since it's right next door to AB, we made sure to get a tour of it while we were there and were blown away with just how fabulous it is in person! I think you'll be the first bride on BDW to have a wedding there, and I can't wait to see your pictures!!
  3. Less is More, I'm so so so happy for you!!!! I've been awaiting your return to hear how it all turned out. I was secretly wishing to myself that after moving you to AB, they would then move you over to the Villa because it is so fabulous. YAY for you!!!! Many congratulations!
  4. Holy ****!!! I just read that this happened to another bride on here who's wedding is 8 days away. I'm not on here much anymore but when I saw this I thought of you and wanted to check in. PM me and we can talk AB details!! This is a terrible thing to do to you, but know that you'll be well taken care of at AB and you'll have a fabulous wedding day. That's a promise!
  5. Fab job, Miriam!!! You really pulled off a beautiful wedding and did a great job incorporating your colors into every detail. I LOVE the guitars!!! And right back at ya for the dress
  6. Ours was on the Blue Terrace, and it's the perfect place if you can get it! It's outside but covered with plenty of space for tables, dancing, a lounge area if you wanted it, pretty much anything. There are restrictions on using it depending on how many guests you have. Good luck!
  7. Hi Kerry, You should pop on over to the Azul Sensatori thread and ask this question. Tons of current and past brides are using/have used the DJ. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/23412/azul-sensatori-brides-post-here/11560
  8. The Grand Wailea is really nice, as well.
  9. Many congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!! This is a FANTASTIC journal. I love your flowers, gifts, and the way you're incorporating a tradition from Cambodia is too sweet. Nice job and I can't wait to see pics upon your return!
  10. I'm pretty sure it's open as a hotel now. I just checked Karisma's website and I'm able to book a reservation. You're probably having trouble finding much info because it's so new. If it helps you decide, all the other Karisma resorts are top notch!
  11. This book is wonderful! I made a travel book on Blurb a while back and love how it turned out. The quality was really great, so I know your wedding book is going to be amazing when you get it (if you haven't already)!
  12. These prices sound about right. I didn't get cupcakes priced, but I did submit two very simple designs for two-tiered cakes and they came back as quite high, IMO. The prices were similar to these.
  13. YAAAAAAY Meredith!!! I've been anxiously awaiting your return! I'm so glad everything was fabulous. You look GORGEOUS!!!! I love the bling, especially on the cake. And as for Andrew, well I'm grinning as I sit typing this because OF COURSE he took care of you He's so talented and I can't wait to see the pro shots!
  14. I used Zazzle for our stamps and they turned out really great! They were much higher quality than I was expecting. I don't know if it's true for all their products, but our stamps did come with zazzle's website printed on them. The sample I created and ordered didn't show it and while it wasn't a big deal, I would have preferred it weren't there.
  15. I used them and no, my quote did not include airfare. LOVE!!! Those were my colors so perhaps I'm a bit biased I think they're perfect!
  16. Meredith, Have a FAB FAB time!!! I know everything's going to be perfect for you! I'm excited to hear all about it and see your pictures!
  17. Ladies, don't get too excited about the possibility of the donkey. The reason he's at weddings right now is because those wedding were booked before he was taken away as an option, and they had to honor those contracts. I don't want you all to get your hopes up if you see recent pictures of the donkey at the resort! Of course maybe if you all ban together they'll bring him back!
  18. Definitely make sure you recheck those day pass prices. That's the price for a normal day, i.e. non-wedding day. Usually if you're having a private event on the property and they're there for your wedding, it could be that you don't have to pay for them at all. After all, you've already paid per head for them to attend your private reception. Karisma policies change frequently, but the last I heard this was the case.
  19. You've really paid attention to the details, and your dress is gorgeous!! I've been to Kapalua and any wedding there is bound to be stunning! Many congratulations!
  20. Yup, our photog was cheaper to bring with us as well. Also, keep in mind that you're paying the fee or 3 night stay regardless of whether the photog is a Mexican national or not. Just make sure you get the photog approved in writing by Karisma before you book and you'll be fine. If you want Elizabeth Medina then definitely ask for her!
  21. Yup, agreed on all points! In fact, you should consider getting a TA because all your guests are flying in from all different places. Ashley's right, they shouldn't cost anything because their $$$ comes from the hotels/tour operators. Some TAs charge a small fee (e.g. $50) to sign with them but then you get that money back, usually in the form of a reduction on your final bill.
  22. Hey Maggie, I don't know if she's ever on anymore, but gingerlover in March is an AB bride, as well.
