Hi,

 

I am a UK bride who is lucky enough to be getting married at the Sensatori in May 2013 and have stumbled across this forum. I don't normally post on forums but I thought this was a great way of communicating with other brides getting married at Azul Sensatori. 

 

I have been reading through some of the thread and I have found some of the information very helpful as you all seem to share the same concerns as I did. 

 

I have noticed I share the same WC as some of you, Erika, she has been helpful so far. 

 

So far we have sorted out the ceremony and dinner. We are also having a S'mores party on the beach in the evening. Being from the UK we don't really know much about S'more parties but Erika has told us it the closest thing we could get to a bonfire on the beach. We are very unsure about what to do with regards to photography and music. It seems very expensive for such a little time frame and we also have to take into consideration that we are having a wedding reception back in the UK for family and friends who cannot come to Mexico. 

 

At the moment we are booked into a standard room but our travel agent advised us that we maybe upgraded due to us being a wedding couple. What are other peoples experience of this?

 

Thanks

I'm looking at booking the sensatori unfortunately it doesn't go on sale until April as Im not getting married until 2014!! (Very organised!!) Is their any UK ladies who know of where I can access any form of price guide/add ons available etc?

Im very unsure with what package to opt for..I love the sound of Gold but I want to bring my own decorations, flowers? And theirs some add ons which I really want? What's the difference between gold and silver?

Is the sky still extra if you have the gold package?

What the total price has your wedding has dot at the Sensatori?

Sorry or all the questions cheesy.gif

So, if even 1 guest booked lowest cat. room and stays only 3 nights, that is what you'd be credited. So if you're staying longer & in a higher category, they'll deduct the total from what you paid. According to my travel agent, about 2 weeks prior to the departure date, the resort will review total rooms booked & refund you what's owed.

 

Hope this helps =)

WOW!! This is a bit disappointing. I have a few ppl that I know are just going to stay for 3 days in a standard level room. So doesnt sound like I will get much of a discount. Does anyone know how the B&G stay free works if you are getting the free wedding and are required to stay in Premium level rooms for 7 days? Do you still qualify for discount?

Also, we were able to get reservations to try out Le Chique on Friday night so this was a plus! On Sat, we went to ED royale for our presentation which took about 4 hours (i think..it was definitely long). They give a detailed presentation on all of Karisma hotels and the differences between all of them and they go through the wedding packages and you do the food tasting and dessert tasting. After that we did a site tour of ED Royale and then went over to Azul Beach And Azul Fives. By the time we were done it was around 7 (i think)...sorry exact details are a big foggy b/c it was about 12-13 months ago...

 

If you want to visit a lot of the different resorts, you will most likely need to spread them out between Friday and Saturday. I really do not think you will be able to do the presentation on Saturday and visit all of the places unless you only want to do a 2-3 other site tours. In that case you should be able to squeeze all of that in on Saturday. 

 

But as soon as you arrive on Thursday, let them know which places you want to visit and they will help you plan it out and arrange for the transportation.

Thank You. This helps me get an idea of how our weekend will go. I am also staying at Azul Sensatori and having the presentation at ED Royale! I believe it is at 930am Saturday. Transportaion is free right?

As long as someone in your party has booked a premium room....and I believe that it can be multiple rooms, totaling 7 nights.  So if two people in your party had a premium room one for 3 nights and one for 4 nights you would qualify.  I'm pretty sure that is what I understand.  Hope this helps :)

 yes transporation from AZ to your presentation at ED is for free. And free transportation if you want to visit the other karisma resorts. If you are interested in trying out Le Chique, definitely tell the consultant as soon as you arrive on Thursday. If you and your FI are foodies people then i would highly recommend Le Chique! :)

We also found the photography packages to be quite expensive.  We are using the hour included in our package for the ceremony and some before pictures.  For the reception, we are asking our guests to be so kind as send us their digital pictures.  We also found Holga cameras by a google search on amazon.com.  They are inexpensive and take really artistic pictures.  We got one that we are loading with color film and one to load with black and white film.  I also have a dear family friend that has agreed to be sure that she photographs some of the key moments at the reception.  By doing this we saved tons of money on pictures our guests would have taken anyway.  Plus putting the Holga cameras on the tables really helps to draw everyone in to participate in the reception.

    • 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.
