Hi there Kazala,

 

Don't worry, there is always a surcharge for the sky weddings. Lots of reasons for it... It's a bit harder to set up (carting everything up to the top floor rather then just the beach) plus they have invested money in creating the venue as well. Plus, should you choose to broadcast your wedding via a live stream (available only to sky wedding brides), they must have technicians at hand in order to make sure the broadcast goes smoothly.

 

Great choice though, it's an amazing spot :) Well worth the surcharge!

Can I just check with everyone who is gettied married on the skydeck, did you pay extra for it? I've been qouted two different prices for each wedding package (pearl, silver, gold) one price for a beach wedding, and one price for a skydeck wedding. I definatley want the sky deck, but also want to check this supplement is usual?

 

And to mbowling....congratulations, have fun and enjoy every second :) xx

I'm also getting married on the sky deck and I did have to pay. It was $1700 with a $200 deposit.

 

Keep in mind tho, if it rains, you will not get the full amount back... they keep some of it which sucks!

I can't really speak for the resort photographers, I'm bringing my own photographer but I did book Playa Weddings as videographers. Good luck!

Hello ladies!

 

First of all, congrats to Kerry and mbowling! You both must be MRS now! Hope you enjoyed every moment and can't wait to see some photos!

 

Our honeymoon (belated) was fantastic! We travelled all over southeast Asia and it was an amazing adventure. I am in love with Cambodia and really want to go back...like right now.LOL
 

Justiner- the photos are beautiful!

I hope they dont try and plant that on me, if I book at current prices I will be flat refusing to pay any extra!!! Am happy to pay it for Ivan Luckie, I love his work, but I think I'll maybe look at a hotel DJ because the music isnt so important, as long as we can dance to it we really dont care lol

Thanks for the info ladies, the menu's look good, I'm impressed.

Once I'm booked, does the wedding co-ordinator send thru photos of the different locations within the hotel that are available for the reception? I've read a lot of reviews that seem to go with Zavas plaza but I'm not sure I want there. Sorry for all the questions and thanx for all your help jiggy.gif

Oh, and the dress, maggie sottero Geneva, its got quite a big train and am not sure its suitable for getting married in the heat but I dont bloomin care coz I love it :D

Can't wait to see a photo of your dress.

As for music, if you're not to picky, I would just suggest renting their Amp system for your dinner. This provides speakers, Ipod player and microphone. As well, the resort has someone who operates your Ipod all night long. So what we did is make music lists, example dinner 1, dinner 2, dancing 1, dancing 2, first dance. Then the guy operating the system just hit play on the Ipod. Whenever our MC or guests went up to give speeches he simply faded the music, and then when the speech was done he turned the music back up. When dinner was done, he simply hit the dance lists and party time! (if I remember correctly it was $150??-check my planning thread... it's there for sure)

 

If you click on my name and go to photos there are some photos of some of the receptions sites. There are lots to choose from, beach, by the pool, indoor....just depends on your group size and what you want. If you have any other questions just ask. I have now been to Sensatori 4 times! I love that spot...so I can certainally offer details and help! Cheers!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
