We rented the sheers from Lomas.  We did one Tiffany Blue and one White.  Tip...if you are ok with white being one of your sheers it saves $50!

 

Then the flowers were separate.  I didnt end up doing a package, because what I wanted turned out cheaper if bought separately.

 

A couple of you were curious about how the tall vases looked as centerpieces, so here are a few pics I was able to screen shot...  I'm sure there is a much better way, but wanted to post it quick before my mgrs see me playing with pics :)

Did you bring down your own sheers?  (did you get a package for the gazebo or just pay for the gazebo flowers/sheers a la carte?)

:)

Thanks again!

Hi!

 

I saw some posts about wedding rehearsal and we had one the night before the wedding at Azul Beach Hotel.  We told them that we needed one and would not be happy without having one and they easily scheduled one for us.  It was pretty basic and only last about 15 minutes but did make me feel more at ease by having one.  I would try harder if you really want to have one and hopefully it will work for you!

You may be able to work this out with them, it really wasn't a big deal for us because although I am "type A-ish" at times, I knew it would all work out.  If you aren't able to schedule a rehearsal, just do an informal one with your wedding party when your ceremony location is vacant.  I promise you, just as other past brides have, it will all work out just perfectly in the end regardless!!!

Try not to stress, as I said above.... it will all work out perfectly!!!!

*if you decide down there, are the options that far from each other if you say "beach ceremony" on your in-room itineraries that your guests can't miss it?

 

They have two weddings per day at AS.  If you have a location that you prefer, inform your Miami WC now and they can reserve it for you.  Once they confirm your location, it will be inserted into your detail sheet and unless the weather is bad, your ceremony location will be guaranteed for your day.  I also suggest that if you have a reception location, you reserve it now as well through your Miami WC.

 

You can decide down there if you prefer, but if they have another event scheduled on your wedding day, you can only choose from the locations that remain.  The options are not very far from one another and your guests will all be told to meet somewhere approximately 30 mins prior to your ceremony and the WC will take them all to your ceremonuy location.  In the event that they are late, there are really only about four ceremony locations, all of which are fairly easy to locate and access.

Jessie, I know you asked me about EDM.... here are some photos from our Honeymoon there.  We were there for 7 days and the beach there is 10x's better than AS.  We had the Infiniti Pool Suite but keep in mind that they also have Swim Up Suites on their first floor if you so desire.  The resort only has 72 rooms and it was HEAVEN.  We initally had a hard time deciding between Secrets Maroma and EDM and once we walked down to Secrets, we knew we made the right choice.  EDM is secluded, romantic, quiet, quaint, and sophisticated.  Secrets Maroma was about a mile walk away (took us about 30 - 45 mins to walk there via the beach on a leisurely stroll) and it was on a stretch of resorts that mirrored Cancun.  Once we heard the Black Eyed Peas pumping at Secrets, we knew we made the right choice with EDM.  Hope these photos help and please PM me if you have more questions.  Anything you book in the Maroma or Tulum area is going to be BEAUTIFUL!

There are the 3 beach options. I would choose your favorite one and reserve it now (just like bigboponthebeach suggests!) They are far enough apart, that you will not interfer with each other. There are maximum 2 weddings a day, but from my understanding no limit on private events (ie. other cocktail parties, welcome parties, etc.) So you should also reserve your reception area. If you need pictures I am sure I can find some.

 

We made a small booklet with a map, and then I highlighted where the ceremony and reception sites were. Plus the resort is really not the big, so it wouldn't be hard to find! If you look at my planning thread I included the template for the welcome book, and the map should be in there. I just used Photoshop to add in the colored dots. (if you want the original map I am sure I still have it in my files and can forward it to you)

THanks Big Bop!!!

:)

 

I have already booked the reception location, but had no idea about the other wedding location.  For past brides that got married on the beach, which location did you choose?  I know there is one by the pier, but not sure about the other. 

 

When do they tell you where your guests are to meet?  I wanted to put a wedding day itinerary in the OOT bags, but wanted to say where they should be half hour before wedding, is it always the same meeting spot?

THanks Murmel...I would def. love if you could email me the original map  :)

melissa.wiseman@senecac.on.ca

Thanks so much.  I did book zavaz for the reception, but haven't decided on the ceremony site (have no clue what the difference between the 3 are)....I know you got married at the one by the pier...any particular reason you chose that over the other 2?

:)

    • 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.
