  1. Hi! I have a bit of a dilemma. Months ago I sent my boss and his wife the Save the Date and he replied that they couldn't make it. Should I still send them an invitation? I've done extensive research on this matter and I still don't have an answer I know some people say that everyone who gets a STD gets an invitation while others say that if a guest has declined you shouldn't send them an invitation (unless they are close friends/family) because it comes across as a gift-grab. Now, I really like both of them (yes, seriously) so I don't want them to feel like I neglected sending t
  2. Hi! Is anyone here going to the BDR this week? I'd love to meet some of you there!
  3. Hi, Just wondering if any Azul Fives brides will be going to the BDR this week? I'm on my way to the airport and would love to see some of you there I'm so excited!
  4. We have a confirmed time and date!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are getting married on April 6, 2016 at 2:00 pm at Azul Fives! I'm ecstatic I was finally able to get this done. Now the fun part begins YAY!!!!
  5. @@TinkerSofi You have great taste in men Ok. I've asked my TA about what to do regarding our move. We'll see what she says
  6. @@acastello2 You really need to double check with the hotel. As far as I know catholic ceremonies can only be performed in churches and chapels. @@TinkerSofi wait, Colombia? I'm Colombian!!!
  7. @@snswedding2016 thank you! That's good to know. To answer your question we would be flying out of the US but most of our guests (60 - 70%) will be flying out of Canada. Should I work with two TAs to get packages for my Canadian and US guests? The problem is that most of the TAs require a deposit from the couple so it doesn't make sense to put down two deposits
  8. @@Layla79 @@TinkerSofi @ashhtayy Thank you so much for your responses. Can you please tell me which TA you are working with? We are planning a May 2016 wedding and I was told that by May prices should start to go down because it's considered "shoulder season". Also, for the US brides, which TA are you guys using? There is a very high probability that we might be moving to the US in the next couple of months so I need to figure out what to do! I can use a Canadian TA and book / hold everything now or wait until we move and do everything then, but I kind of want to get a date soon! Thoug
  9. Hi ladies, We are planning our wedding for May 2016 and have about 50 - 60 guests joining us and after a lot of research and spreadsheets comparisons I'm 90% on board with the Azul Fives. My only concern is that I don't think we are getting a great deal. Our packages came in at $2,000 from Calgary, and $1,850 from Toronto (1 bedroom suite). Also we are only getting the 21st adult free (hotel only) and no word on free events or anything like that. I mentioned it to my TA but she said that they don't have any offers at the moment. I also checked their website but it looks like the free e
  10. @@kimmyd2 I'm so happy I'm not alone! I'm actually on week 15 now, I finished the whole guide and I'm now on week 3 of round two I feel your pain. The first few weeks were the hardest because you are still trying to find a way to balance everything. But once you have that part figured out it gets much easier which is probably why I haven't felt the need to join a bootcamp or anything like that. Once I'm through with round 2 I will go for BBG 2.0 but at that point in time I will need to join a gym because it requires a lot more equipment. Another tip that might help is to think of y
  11. Thank you for posting this! I'm trying to choose a venue so detailed opinions from other brides are very helpful. Can I ask you about the beach? Was it nice or full of seagrass? We are planning to get married on the beach so it is kind of important Thanks again
  12. @@FutureMrsGarcia and @ Thank you so much. That definitely puts me at ease with this option I was wondering, is a site visit necessary? Every blog/magazine/book/website seems to highly recommend a site visit but I'm wondering how many brides actually do it. I have yet to hear anything back from my contact at palace resorts so I was wondering if any of you could share their price lists for additional decorations and stuff.... Do they have one? Thanks again
  13. Hi ladies, I hope I'm in the right place. I'm seriously considering the Beach Palace as my venue (in part thanks to @perianjay) but I really really want to get married on the beach (grew up on one, fiance proposed on one, need to get married on one). However, I've noticed that most of the brides getting married at BP chose the sky bar for the ceremony. Is there something wrong with the beach? Is it too crowded? Not private enough? Or just not very nice? Thanks in advance, this is kind of a deal breaker for me.
  14. @@JenniferH114 Thank you for taking the time to describe the reasons why you chose ERC. It is honestly all very helpful Is it really only $45 per additional guest and it includes everything??? That's crazy! You are right, I've seen a few price lists and they charge for napkins, chairs, candles, flowers etc + setting up costs + food + alcohol.... I haven't added it all up because I might just decide to elope! Have you received detailed information regarding prices for additional services: music, decor, flowers, etc.? Do they offer any perks such as additional nights / upgrades or event
