We were told we had to pay our balance by Dec 6! I don't have a clue. Was on the phone with my WC this morning, only to get the update sheet in the afternoon, with still a bunch of info missing or wrong. So off goes another email, and hopefully tomorrow a bit further along.

Good luck on your BD shoot!!! smile159.gif

 

I had fun with mine. It had been the most I'd laughed in awhile at that point. A good stress reliever and escape from wedding planning. I did down a bottle of wine while there so that may have added to it! msnwink.gif Lol.

 

 I wish I could have had a bottle of wine! I had to drive LOL  But I am really happy with how it went. The photographer was wonderful. She was so positive and had great suggestions it went flawlessly. Now just to await the teasers and the photos!

 

If you could ask your sister:

1) how do you contact the nanny?

2) do they have a long wait list? ie. to you have to make reservations a few days in advance?

3) approximate cost?

Thanks so much!

 

Also just curious, did they have a microphone/speaker you used during your ceremony? Trying to figure out if this is included or an extra I have to rent?

I'm in the final stages of booking my wedding at Azul Sensatori. I visited it the weekend before Thanskgiving and it was beautiful. My Fiance and I visiting 5 other properties and have narrowed it down to Azul and NOW Sapphire. I'm waiting to get our room rates back from my TA (Gayle) and then we'll make the final selection. I can't wait.

 

Apparently my contact in Miami is Angie...is anyone working with her? I have to admit that one of the things working against AS is the challenging planning process. And the vendor policy of course.

I've got Angie and she has been great, she replies to emails very quickly and I have spoken to her a few times. She will try and answer any queries you have and if she can't answer them she will find out and get back to you asap. Good luck with making your decision, when are you planning to get married?

Congratulations and welcome to this site! I've actually never been to Azul Sensatori before, I booked my trip through my TA just based on recommendation. I'm so glad you loved it. So far everything has gone well with the planning. The Miami contact is just there I think to ease the planning bride with the process; otherwise, you book everything there when you arrive!

Has anyone used Dmitry Yukunin as a photographer? Is he part of the resort? If so how was he?

Also I am having an issue, my mom is a florist and would like to buy flowers down there to do them herself (at least the bridesmaids and bridal bouquet). I'm not sure how to work this out. I don't know if Sensatori's florist would let her buy them from them loose or if she would have to get them with who they go through. Help!!

I personally don't know anything about that photographer. I would recommend entering their name in the search box on this forum. You will find reviews from brides that have used him before as well as pictures. That's how I am learning about the photographer I am planning to book.

 

For your flowers question, you may want to talk to your Miami WC to see how that would work. It would be nice if you could buy the loose flowers and have them shipped for your mom to make them for you. That would be so special!

Oh, and if anyone was curious, my WC told me no other cakes are allowed at AS.  That's stinky b/c they don't do the best decorating from what I have seen.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
