Thanks for the advice Jessie & Christined! Now I just have to figure out the logistics of transporting our guests back to AS at different times without paying a fortune!

I also noticed that they did flowers, cakes, and decorations, so I priced them against what I was getting at Sensatori.

 

Then I saw a post about the free Welcome Cocktails and someone using it for the wedding cocktail hour. (I was using mine for the day before.) I contacted my wedding coordinator at Azul and asked if I could use that free cocktails for my wedding cocktail hour instead...and she said yes! That is saving me about $1,200.

 

With Azul I would have gotten the flowers, sheers for the gazebo and a cocktail hour, but going with Fresa Weddings  I am getting the flowers, sheers for gazebo, cake pops, and a fire dancer show for only $300 more. And yes, the price difference does include the vendor fee.

 

YAY!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Way to go!!!!  Really, it's nice to hear a story about someone getting what they want for their wedding and not having to pay outrageous fees.  I'm all for paying for what something's worth but it really drives me nuts to bring a group down there to stay for a week AND getting charged that vendor fee.  It's not like the resort isn't getting loads of money from you and your guests.  If I was having a bigger wedding, I'd definitely go with Fresa!

So this is my first post.  I'm getting married at AS on November 11, 2012 and I'm starting to decide on all my details.  I need some opinions about using Lomas for flowers, decorations, cake, and DJ.  I don't want to pay the outside vendor fee unless it's totally worth it.  I've been trying to read through some of these post but there are so many!!!!  I looked at the Fresa website and loved what they had but as far as decorations and cake options.  Does anyone know if I would use Fresa for flowers, decorations, cake, and photography if that is considered one vendor???

 

What photographers are all you Azul brides going with?

Hi! I'm new here and hoping to get some feedback from the group. I want to commit to Azul Sensatori for an April 7,2013 wedding but my TA haven't clarified for me if the bride & groom stay free promotion is available next year. She can't seem to get the promotion list for 2013. Any bride getting married in 2013 know of any confirmed promotion? I'm falling in love with this resort but I want to stretch my $$$ since this is a renewal of vows and we have 3kids so travel alone is a lot. Appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

Hi, can you clarify on the 'free cocktail hour'. Is that included for any wedding at Azul, and does that include any food?

    • 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.
