Hi Popo,

 

Yes I am using a wedding planning website and doing exactly what you are doing. It makes it a lot easier to communicate with the people exactly what you want! Congrats on reserving you date that's very exciting!

I just sent my deposit to reserve the date March 10th 2012!!! Yay!

I am using a destination wedding planning agency and they highly recommended Azul Sensatori. They said that they do a lot of wedding  there and have visited the resort themselves and their service was impeccable. The company is called Luxe Destination Weddings. They will deal with the WC there so I don't really have to make any long distance calls or worry about getting replies as well as collect money from people and bug them...weight off my chest.

Is anyone else using a wedding planner outside the resort?

 

 Congrats to all the new brides! any 2012 brides out there?



Any brides that are getting married before September with the color blush/rose pink as a theme? I am looking to buy products (lanters,chair sashes, table runners, etc.) from someone instead of renting from them. Let me know :)

Sorry I haven't been on lately, just lurking. Was really busy the last few weeks, we sold two houses and moved into a new one last Tuesday. Now our AHR is just over 2 weeks away! Anyway I hope your planning is going well :)

I really don't think it is a consistent number Maggie. First thing you have to know is that it is being done "under the table" so to speak. The WC are putting the money directly into the pockets of the workers or themselves. Management does not see a cent....hence why it is CASH only! Best thing I can tell you is to likely plan on somewhere between $75-$200, this all depends on 1) who your WC is; 2) amount of items, lights, things they have to set up (ie. the more stuff, the more it will cost you); 3) the number of table/guests you have. We had 63 guests and had paper laterns, centerpieces, menu cards, napkin wraps, name cards, table seating charts, candles (which don't bother doing...since it's way too windy), and stuff for the kids table (coloring books, crayons, toys)...and it cost us $120.

Between ceremony & reception. So I'll probably only do 1-1/2 hours.


Jamie, if you're getting married on the beach, I could highly recommend the beach area for the cocktail reception. Our guests LOVED the fact that directly after the wedding, they could walk over directly to the right and keep the party going. The bar was there as well! But the guests loved that they could watch some of our pictures being taken and the beautiful views.

You're stressing over details that really won't matter! LOL

Relax, your guests will enjoy the cocktails wherever they are. And some will go freshen up, but I don't think anyone will go hang out in their rooms. Most people love to be part of the action, and be able to partake in the great events!

I can't remember the exact prices, but that seems high. Depending on the material of your dress you might not need it. I took my dress and just hung it up in the closet, it was perfect without having to touch it! (mind you it was mostly lace)

***Also a big note: LAUNDRY SERVICES ARE NOT AVAILABLE ON SUNDAY!

So if you are getting married on a Monday (like I did), don't wait til Sunday to send suit/dress out. They had to go out of their way to make sure my husbands suit got pressed...and it didn't get back on Monday til almost 1pm.

Hello to all,

 

I am pretty close to booking Azul Beach for my wedding in 2012...are there any other soon to be brides that are concerned by all the Trip Advisor postings about the resort overbooking and people having to move.  I would feel horrible if we arrived and none of my guests had rooms.

Jazz04 - Have you been able to get an idea of what the building 4 pool deck area looks like? We are having a private event there on Saturday night, and I can't get the WC to send me a picture of what that area looks like.

 

Does anyone else know?

So, I think my FI and I will be canceling some of the rooms in our Group Agreement for the weekend of June 10-12, 2011. Does anyone need rooms? The hotel is sold out for that weekend...

 

Jazz04- Are you good with rooms?

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
