Hi ginnigurl, my centerpieces aren't anything spectacular but I got some fake flowers from Hobby Lobby and am placing them in a skinny turquoise blue vase that I got at the dollar store.  I have candles for the sides too but I think we have decided not to bother with those as we think they will just blow out.  Also on the table will be a turquoise table runner, some seashells, the table number, placecards, our menus, and I am thinking about getting maracas.  So, I think that will be enough.  My budget is very slim so I feel as though I've cut back a lot of stuff.  There's so much I would love to do, but just don't have the money for. At this point, I'm paying for almost the whole wedding and the trip for four people.  :(

Ladies, Just a side note. If you need a good toning workout to get in bikini/wedding shape. Try Crossfit! I started this week and it's hard but I can tell it's going to be perfect for the shape I want to get in

To the girls who have been to the resort, what items are included in your rooms, like shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, etc?  I started buying some stuff last night and wasn't sure what all I would need.

We ordered it from island importer.......www.islandimporter.com It was the custom linen monaco suit.  He absolutely loved his suit and the grooms loved their pants and shirts that we ordered for them.  I would order a swatch it was very helpful in choosing the right color because the colors are hard to see on the computer.  He went to a mens suit shop and got measured for a custom suit and everything came out perfect.

hey ladies, I've been watching the posts for awhile now and just joined.

 

I am getting married at azul sensatori on july 3rd on the beach. We leave june 29 to july 6. coctail party is at the palapa yoga and recpetion at the plaza zavas.

 

we have 27 people going, 29 including us.

 

have a few questions if anyone can help

 

1) we are not getting a dj, we are having a dj mix songs back here to play on a ipod, will this work?

2) do we bring our ipod and speaker for walking down the aisle music on the beach?

3) how is the food? we are having a BBQ buffet with new york steak.

4) how is the wedding coordinator? do i have to make a time schedule with cake cutting, first dance, etc or do they do that? will they hang lanterns under the reception area?

5) we have 10 people in our wedding party. how many tables should we get? tables of 6, 8 or 10? also do they even do U shape wedding tables for the bridal party, there will be 12 of us. is that what destination weddings do or does everyone sit at circlular tables?? any help with this would be amazing

 

 

thanks so much

 

excited for the wedding and some help with these questions

1. That should work fine. Only thing is if you are using your own ipod dock for your dinner, you will need someone to operate it (ie. for speeches, first dance, etc.) We rented the amp and speakers for dinner because we wanted a microphone. This worked out really well since someone from the resort operated it the whole night. We just handed him our ipod and he played the music for dinner and dancing, and stopped the music for speeches, cake cutting, etc. It worked really well.

 

2. They provide (NO COST) an ipod player, speaker and microphone for your wedding service. Give them your ipod with very specific playlists (ie. Groom entrance, bridal entrance, signing registry, exit song, music for guests sitting) and they take care of it.

 

3. Sorry can't help here.

 

4. The wedding coordinators are amazing. You should have an idea of what you want for your ceremony and reception, but they will go through the timing of everything with you at your meeting. Usually the day after you arrive at the resort. They will hang laterns, and decorate with your items at a small charge...cash only. We had laterns, centerpieces, menu cards, name cards, guest book, kids games, coloring books, etc. that they put out and I think it cost us $120US. The price will vary depending on number of guests, items to put out, etc.

 

5. We had asked for a rectangular table, but they told us they did not have any. So we used the round tables of 8. We ended up with 2 "head tables" we had our bridal party with their significant others sit with them. It worked out well for us. (however we did see another wedding later in the week with long tables.....so ask and see)

 

good luck!

Sure! I LOVED those photos as well and their casual photos were just as good if not better than their wedding photos! ;-)

And lots of drinking so do sweat to much if it is loose a little.  

 

I was trying so hard to coordinate colors of the grooms with the dads, and the moms with the bridesmaids that i finally just gave up!! It all worked out.  My father-in-law bless his heart ended up wearing a white tux, pale yellow shirt with mismatching blue bow tie and cumerbun!!! WOW is all i can say!  I freaked out at first when he told me about his outfit.....someone in florida told him it was perfect ....NOT.....but in the end it doesn't matter.  We all had a great time.


I laughed out loud when you described your FIL's outfit! That is something I can see my 78 year old future FIL doing! LOL I love that you flowed with it and saw the beauty in moments shared rather than the details. :-) Nice reminder for us B2B's to keep in perspective. :-) 

 

Beautiful photos as well! You all make a beautiful family! Thanks for sharing and Congrats again!!!

    • 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.
