Anyhow, I am leaning toward Azul Fives...but there is noooooo info on it! If you guys can give me any advice, I am all ears. I am interested in both info on the resort and wedding details. I just want everyone, including my self to have a stress free time and to have loads of fun! Hey! I just replied to your PM.... sorry it took me so long! I sent my phone number, because I honestly haven't had enough time even write the review yet!! Azul Fives was beautiful, the staff was FAB - Estephanie and Itzel the onsite wedding coordinators were amazing! The food and drinks were wonderful!! You can also join Azul Fives, Karisma and Azul Hotels on Facebook - many times people post weddings, questions and they post sales/discounts and contests. I found that and the Azul Sensatori forum on here to be SO HELPFUL! I don't think I could have done it without this, actually, I know I couldn't have!!!! I would say overall: the best things were - oversized condo-size rooms, the staff, the food, the pools.... I was actually sick most of the time, and the staff totally babied me... made and brought special food to my room, etc. not-so-best things were - no oceanview rooms (but you could see the ocean from the rooftop space, if you have a penthouse, which they upgraded us too) and because the resort was at very low capacitiy, the nightlife wasn't that exciting (but we still had fun!!), the beachfront for Azul is small, and you can't really swim (but you can walk down the beach to swim, the pools are so great, you don't really want too!) Sometime, I will finally do a review, but in the meantime, it is definately a beautiful place for a wedding!! Good luck!
  2. I could send you mine, it was from Azul Fives, but they are almost the same. Just send me your email.
  3. We did only because we were bringing our own photographer, and they allowed her with no fees because she was staying 3+ nights. I looked through their preferred vendors and was not impressed. I don't understand while they do it?
  4. Wow! It was so great to get on here and see everyone's pics!! They are beautiful and I so wish I was back, I cannot believe how fast it went. I really thought a destination wedding would seem like it was so much longer to celebrate such a special moment... but it was gone in a blink of an eye.... Here are some of our pics! The picture for our "Thank You" Cards.... lots of kissing! LOL!
  5. Wow! Very beautiful, truly amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It does leave me with one question - how much luggage did you bring and how long did you stay???
  6. Hey girls!!! Things are finally settling down and getting back to normal after our June 4th wedding at Azul Fives... for those of you that remember, we booked and Sensatori, but did not block rooms and it sold out... so we made the choice to switch. Azul Fives is beautiful and the staff was wonderful.... it went by soooooooo fast!!!! I would secretly have to stay I still wish we had been at Sensatori, but the wedding would not have been the same without the additonal friends and family, including the photographer! (We did miss the beach views from our room, but had a 2nd floor penthouse that had good views.... also, the place was only at about 20% capacitiy, nearly deserted - but we did get lots of attention from the staff..... just a few of the pros/cons).... I just couldn't bear to leave this AZS Forum, because you have all been so wonderful (Extra kudos to Murmel, Maggie and Jamie!) Getting caught up on posts, some gorgeous brides and pictures!!! Congrats to all! I will work on a review and here are a few pictures from Portraits by Jody. (Only comment on this one is that the the chairs were not supposed to have the bows until the reception, because the color was more aqua then my tiffany blue)
  7. Thanks budgetingbride! The wedding was wonderful!!! I had already left when I got your message, but working on a review soon! Did you post any pictures or a review anywhere??
  8. Hey girls!! Leaving in the morning my FI's knee is on the mend!!! Someone asked about vows - here is the best website I found - tons of great ones!!! We are still deciding between a few!! #56 is neat and is about getting married on the beach and incorporates the ocean!! http://www.documentsanddesigns.com/verse/contemporary_vows.htm Also, thanks for the facebook votes - contest ends tonight and we keep fighting for first, but are in second now, so if any of you busy brides have time to vote still today - PLEASE do!!! We are in Azul Hotels May Contest for $500 Resort Credit... and the bride who gets the most "LIKES" on their proposal story WINS!!! If you want to help us out, that would be GREAT!!! There are THREE steps: 1 - LIKE Azul Hotels by Karisma page http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/azulhotels 2 - Click on Photos, and find the Album called The Best Proposal Story, and find our picture. We are the last picture, I am wearing a blue football jersey and he is wearing a white one and it says "Portraits by Jody". 3 - LIKE our picture and please comment, too. Thanks so much for all you and best wishes to my fellow June brides!!!!
  9. Hey girls! We have less than a week before we leave for Azul Fives for our 6/4 wedding!! I haven't been on as much because it's been a whirlwind, my FI started having pain and swelling last Friday night and we got him to urgent care and he was diagnosed with a septic infection in his knee.... couldn't walk or move it...lots of pain! Tuesday (at the 3rd doctor/specialist visit) they said they wanted to "cut it"/surgery. Which would mean maybe we could make it Mexico, but no swimming, pain meds and crutches!! I am happy to say after a lot of crying and prayers, his visit today went well, swelling and pain are subsiding and the doctor thinks we can supress it until after we get back! We have another visit Tuesday and we leave Wednesday - so keeping hopes up, but it sounds like should be good to go!!! Thank God!!! I wanted to ask you girls who are on Facebook to do me a big favor??? Unless, of course another bride on this forum is in the contest, because that wouldn't be fair.... but we are in Azul Hotels May Contest for $500 Resort Credit... and the bride who gets the most "LIKES" on their proposal story WINS!!! If you want to help us out, that would be GREAT!!!
