Hi there, We used Caribe photos because that is all we could afford. We were very happy with how the pictures came out! We also hired their videographer and the video also turned out great. We got all our pics and video before we left Mexico which was a huge bonus! Hope this helps! H

Hey! When in October is your wedding? Ours is November 4th. Have you decided on a photographer yet? We just booked ours and are so excited! They are offering a deal where if our dates are near each other the two couples share in the airfare! Thought I would throw it out there. Photography is one of the most important things in our day and I have done ALLOT of research! Here is there website if you would like to see some of their work. http://artistique.com/ They have been to AS numerous times and really seem to have a handle on the resort. And their style and creativity if great :)

I was wondering what it was like to have the wedding reception at spoon?? did you do your speeches there? was there room to dance? have your own music? if not what did you do after dinner?

Hi All,

just a quick note for everyone considering just having an ipod for the reception... we hired Doremixx and i can tell you they MADE the party. It was absolutely worth it. We saw other Djs around the resort (I'm assuming the dj that lomas offers) it did NOT compare. If you're on the fence about it I strongly suggest going with the dj. I'm sure an ipod works fine but they made the party fun, there's something about someone cracking jokes, etc. Not to mention the props were a huge hit. We had comments from the staff saying our party was one of the best theyve seen in a long time, everyone was on the dance floor!

 

that's all!

Hey everyone,

 

I have literally read hundreds of pages of posts on this thread and love all the ideas!  I'm leaning towards the Azul Sensatori as I love the kids area and all the wonderful things everyone has to say about the hotel.  We will have a lot of kiddos coming and we have two of our own so the kid's area is a huge bonus!

 

Just wondering for past brides what your final costs looked like and what your totals were for having a wedding there.  In all the posts I've read nobody has really commented on how much they actually spent total on their wedding.  This would be so helpful for me to budget and start planning.  Although my wedding isn't going to be until February of 2014!!  Yep, get used to me on here, ladies.  lol

 

I'm also interested in the weather from all of you February brides and if it was windy etc, what the night temps are like.

 

Thanks so much and looking forward to getting to know some of you!!

 

Amanda

Got back last Wednesday....we were at AS for 1 week with our families and friends for the wedding and 1 week at EDR for our Honeymoon...we could not have had a better time...Everything was amazing...everyone was crazy helpful..there were a couple of of little glitches....but now I am counting the days until we can go back....

We didn't have a private event...we did the dinner at Spoons...and it was perfect...food was delicious and even after all the awful cake horror stories..our cake was beautiful and so tasty!

We used Caribe (didn't have the hugest budget) and although it freaked me out a little..they were amazing also.  They did our wedding pics at AS and then we did a TTD at EDR the following week.....I have almost 1000 pictures posted on Facebook...so if anyone wants to see them...PM me so I can friend you.

If anyone has any questions, let me know...

Again...we were super simple and casual....and I loved every single second...I will eventually post a review but until I actually get around to it, ask me anything :)

 

I saw a few other weddings at both resorts while we were down there...although EDR was absolutely gorgeous, I would not have wanted our wedding there....AS was absolutely the perfect place for us!

    • 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.
