Sherylle - your video is awesome! Captured the emotion and the great time had by all, especially the young MJ dancing up the floor!  How was your DJ?  Would you recommend them?

OMG - the Maracas are awesome!  Do you mind if I copy them?  Brilliant idea.

Mel, I am having my wedding at AB as well and would love to connect to get some tips and tricks if that's alright.

I'm back and we had an AMAZING wedding!  Azul Beach Hotel is a Fabulous resort!  Here are a couple of my favorite pics so far that my friends took. I haven't even uploaded my photos yet. We ended up getting so many great pics from our guests which is great since it takes awhile to get the professional ones.

We had Paul from Playa Weddings do our video and his work is AMAZING!! I have not received the video yet but I know his work it GREAT! I can't wait to get the video. There are examples on his website...http://www.playaweddings.com/video.php Check him out and let me know if you have any questions.

 

Yes, Karisma banned La Luna recently. Such a bummer because we had them booked and then had to find another photographer last minute.  We ended up going with Samuel Luna but Claudia does great work as well!

Excellent!  I will start with my Q's on this thread so other brides to be can enjoy...but may PM you later with other things so thanks so much for the offer :)

 

I went to PDC in April and did a bunch of site visits with my fiance from Puerto Morelos all the way down to Tulum.  If money was no object we would have loved Hotel Esencia but the prices are INSANE but the beach was stunning.  We liked Ceiba Del Mar but the food was terrible and the sea grass in the water and on the beach was bothersome, plus walking the beach beside the hotel proved very fruitful as there as garbage all around and looked like it had been there for a while which brought us to Azul Beach which has such a gorgeous beach (although small), the food was awesome and they just had their act together - plus the price for our guests was right...we wanted to take on the big expense and try to limit costs for our guests since they are coming from around the world and vary in incomes.

 

So far 39 rooms (68 adults and 18 kids) have put a deposit down which they can cancel for a small fee until end of August - WAY more than we were expecting but some may cancel.

 

We plan on having a beach ceremony with the reception at the Blue Terrace but now they are suggesting one of the new ballrooms.

 

Q's for you (sorry but so few AB Brides vs AS on the site so I feel like I hit the jackpot ;):

- Was the construction bothersome and when do you think it will be over and done with?

- Did most of your guests stay in teh Deluxe suites on the old side and were the rooms OK?

- How many guests did you have, where did you have it and would you do the same all over?

- Did you do a close to sunset wedding and was it really windy (to veil or not to veil ;)?

- Who was your DJ and were they good (they no longer allow Mania or Doremixx)?

- Who was your photographer and were they good?  I also heard that Paul from Playa Weddings was a great videographer, maybe cheaper than Cancun Video...

- What did you do for the meal at the reception and was it good?

- Anything you would warn us to avoid or push to ensure we include/do?

 

Thanks so much and congrats again on a gorgeous wedding!

Marianne

Melissa you need to post your review.So goad to hear your wedding went great! I know those so few of us AB brides we all have to help each other out. Did you do a welcome dinner? MandM- I haven't even heard of new ballrooms. Our wedding isn't until next April so I haven't really bothered my WC we got most of our stuff decided. Waiting for RSVP I gave everyone 3 months to decide so 9/1 is the cut off. I guessed for 50 so we'll see how it goes. :) You have so many rooms! I blocked 20 but I think we're going to need to add some more. Considering half the rooms are already booked. I'll PM you so we can discuss more.

    • 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.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
