Hello Everyone!

 

So Im actually getting married at Azul Beach Hotel but dont see any current brides so I was reccomend to join this thread since we all deal with the same coordinators, ect. I have to say Im pretty happy with Tiffany! We were dealing with Nancy who was a such a nightmare! Its so good to have someone who gets back to you in 24 hrs...Im sure there have been postings on this.

 

I do have a question - do you know if its possible to have a non religious symbolic ceremony? Tiffany mentioned only a minister performs these (we wanted the judge but i guess they just do the legal ones) but both my FI and I are pretty adament about having no religous undertone...I know this is last minute but we were going to do the legal ceremony untill last week and we changed our minds

You may have already shared before, but would you mind sharing your budget and what they charged you for your private event & extras? I'm hoping I haven't forgotten anything I need to budget for...epecially since everything seems to be an additional charge! Thanks!
Sure, no problem!!! If you will PM me, I will email you my spreadsheet I did that has everything on it.

Hey girls who have done site visits - what type of key did you get to open your room door? Was it the regular credit card sized one? I'm trying to work on OOT bag items and want to make sure I make the correct sized holder.

 

Thanks!

Has anyone asked if a guest/friend can officiate a symbolic ceremony? We're not doing an official ceremony and would prefer no religious undertones. We have two guests coming who officiate marraige ceremonies in the US and both are very close to us and it would be so special for one of them to do it. Since it won't be official, do you know if the resort allows it?

Let me be the latest to join in on the Jo'Zeen frustration. Her emails are SO FRUSTRATING! I have to step away after reading them to avoid sending an angry email back. You wait a day for a response, and it's always a pasting from the website or another question that doesn't answer yours.

I know it's more than 45 days out, but she and I had already planned everything out and since we knew everything we wanted I thought I would go ahead and pay. This way she can get all of my requests to the onsite coordinators and they can make sure it's all been reserved and taken care of (plaza deck, etc). I was told that they can't promise you a specific wedding location or private event site until you are paid in full....of course that prompted me to get on the ball! Now, let's just hope they get it all right! lol
Congrats on getting everything settled! I got a different story from Tiffany - she didn't mention that we'd need to pay in full before we could be confirmed for anything. She did say that she wouldn't be able to request anything (venue of reception, food, etc) until 3 months from our date (wedding on 5/24). So, I've been patiently waiting... I think its crazy that we would have to pay in full before they will confirm where your ceremony or reception will be held! I'm trying not to get frustrated, but its kind of hard not to.

Did Tiffany mention how soon after you'd receive confirmations? Would you mind PM'ing me your detail sheet/budget - I'm wondering how much the "details" will add up to.

Thanks!!

I just found out from Tiffany there is another wedding the same day as mine, and that it will depend on what our guest numbers are as to where we can have our events. I'm only concerned that the other bride will be wanting the same areas as I do! Has anyone run into this issue? I'm 9 months out but would like to have it set so I don't have to worry about it between now and then.

 

I agree with you Pepper...if you pay you should know what you are paying for!!!

I feel so bad for the Azul Fives Brides. The news was released yesterday that the opening of Azul Fives has been post-poned for several months.

I found the following statement on TripAdvisor.

 

Here is a letter from Karisma in regards to Azul Fives:

 

AZUL FIVES HOTEL BY KARISMA TO OPEN IN LATE FALL 2009

 

MIAMI (Feb. 12, 2009)—Azul Hotels by Karisma, a premier collection of Gourmet Inclusive® properties located throughout the Riviera Maya, Mexico, today announced that the opening of Azul Fives Hotel by Karisma is delayed until late fall 2009.

 

The financial crisis and economy’s continued decline has adversely affected the official launch of Azul Fives Hotel, as with many other projects of its kind, impacting the availability of funds and subsequently, impeding the property’s completion. As such, after serious consideration and exhaustion of other alternatives, construction on Azul Fives Hotel was promptly halted.

 

 

I can only imagine what a huge undertaking it was to open 2 large resorts months apart from one another. However, it is very disappointing for those who were booked there.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
