Hi everyone!! I haven't read through the 150 posts I've missed, just wanted to pop in and say hi!!! Wedding went fabulous!! My review will come later but i have a big tip for anyone soon...if possible, I highly recommend having a friend know exactly what you want for the ceremony and reception so they can step in if the coordinators start to fall short. Decor was perfect, ceremony went smooth, but the reception organization could've fallen apart fast if our friend didn't step in and take over. My number 2 biggest tip is to give them one suitcase with an inventory list with descriptions of exactly how you want everything. I got this original idea from LessIsMore, and built on it by putting absolutely everything in writing in the suitcase...inventory, pictures, sermon, readings, order of events,etc. Well I better get back to my honeymoon! If anyone is considering the casitas...I highly recommend it!!! It has been fabulous here! It's pretty expensive, but totally worth it! Also, I didn't end up using all of my membership "weeks" for all of my guests, so if any of you need extra discounts for your honeymoon or straggling guests just let me know and I'll see what I can get. PM me though cause I have no idea when I'll get through all the posts! :)

Jaime or Tisha, would either of you girls be willing to sell your lights for the Zavas reception decor? I would rather just buy the right amount from someone who has already had their wedding there and knows the length and everything. 

 

Anyone else with pink, gold or ivory wedding decorations PM me. I would love to just buy stuff from girls on here rather than having to buy brand new from somewhere else :)

Justine - what a great idea!

I live in SF and will be having my wedding in November. Are you tinking of bringing decorations back into the US or storing it somewhere there for future use?

 

Us girls getting together to save on decor and pay it forward - is such a great idea.

Especially with the rates Azul charges - Mamma Mia :)

Hi my fellow Azul Brides,

 

Has anyone dealt with the issue of having 3 year olds who are way advanced use the kids club?

I have a niece and nephew coming to AB and I would hate if they couldn't join the kids club play groups becasue they didn't meet the cut off.

 

Has anyone asked about this or overcome it?

Much obliged to anyone who has insight!

Marianne

My wedding is in September, I live in LA and was planning on bringing stuff back with me, depending on how much I bring and how much it will cost me for extra baggage. What are your colors? Maybe we can try to buy together or buy off someone on here :)

Justine - I'm definitely planning to sell my zavas decor! I'll have a better list of what's available when I get home, but off the top of my head, I have 6 strands of lights, 4 strings of 8" lit lanterns, 6 white 14" lanterns, and some 10" that I didn't end up using. All white turned out really nice with the tiff blue satin sashes and runners for a pop of color. I'll post pictures too so you can see how it all went together.

I was not able to find the answer to this question either.  I just went ahead and did it the way I thought it should be. If the order is changed a little during the ceremony, oh well, it's Mexico and we will just have to roll with it!  LOL  My order is:  prelude, processional, bridal march, words of welcome, recitation of vows, exchange of rings, sand ceremony and signing of docs, closing, and recessional.  I did not see your wedding date at the bottom of your post, but if it is after my date (05/28/11), I will let you know!

Jaime I am so glad your wedding was FABULOUS!  I can't wait to see your review.  Thanks for the tips...something else for me to do on the front end so that I won't be stressed when I get there.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
