I wanted to get an outside DJ. 

Good thing I already negotiated my outside photographer! 

It's ridiculous. UGH.

I am wondering if you already signed a contract if they will grandfather in the $500 ? Might be worth asking. I don't have any outside vendors so I guess I lucked out

Has anyone had a party over 150+ people and used the ballrooms for an event? I went down for a site visit this past week (I'll upload pics soon), but I was sorely disappointed in their ballrooms because when you open up both of them, they are an L shape, which means that the dance floor/head table would have to be in the corner of the L... and then the tables would have to be set up in the legs of the L...

 

Does anyone have thoughts on this? Pictures of this? Any other ideas for how to make it work? Thanks!

I am using an outside DJ - DJ Dorremixx.  This company is approved by Azul but there is a $500 outside vendor fee.  I got them approved first then signed the contract with them.

Site Visit -- Overall Resort: I did not stay at AZS, only went there for two hours to take a tour of the different venues. I'll be providing a few different posts about what I learned; this one will provide pictures of the resort itself:

 

Lobby: When we walked in, we were greeted with welcome champagne! The hotel is very boutique-y and modern/chic. I loved it. Such great decor!

Sky Deck: This is the terrace you walk into once you're done in the lobby. You have to walk through this part to get to the entire resort. Mojito is on the left and the Italian restaurant on the right.  This is apparently the "back up" location if youre wedding is rained out. We're actually trying to use this as our primary wedding site, but given we have a traditional Indian wedding, we'd need this space for 3 hours... so I'm working with Rafaela on this...

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
