 No I am using my own travel agent. I think I get just a resort credit, which I am hoping to use for the spa. sad.gif I am also bringing my own photographer from home. I am just going to go with the mexican fiesta since its the cheapest, and we can stay witht he Theme! woot.gif

They are round tables of 8.  I think at one time my WC said they possibly had different table sizes, but I don't know if that is actually true or not.   I would plan on tables of 8, if at all possible.  We had 7 round tables of 8, and then one table with 9 (same size table, just crammed one more in due to an odd number), and then our sweetheart table.  It all fit nicely in a circle around the gazebo.

Yippey!!! Congrats! Are you going with Azul Sensatori? or Azul Beaches?

 

We set up our wedding page through www.mywedding.com. Super easy and free. There are a few other good sites, some being free and some costing a fee.  I would shop around and see the sample pages. There might be a sample that jumps out at you. 

 

Happy Planning!!!! cheers.gif

Thanks for the advice Murmel and JennyBenz.    My Aunt and Cousin booked their trip!  Originally,  their TA had asked for adults only section - of course there won't be rooms with 2 beds.  

 

Up to 30 guests now!

Glad to hear they will be able to make it!

Hoping someone [perhaps a newlywed?] can help me out with a dilemma I just ran into-

I was just speaking with my WC about the ceremony- we are doing a legal ceremony- and they told me the judge will most likely speak Spanish and have it translated. I requested English-speaker, so hopefully that works out =/

 

Also, just found out we can't change any details of the ceremony and if we wanted to say our own vows, we'd have to do it after the ceremony concludes- really?! LOL I don't want to do that, as it's silly and really thought they'd let us play a little with the words being said since it's our wedding, but apparently not! Any advice, what did you experience? I'd appreciate your help =)

 

Thanks everyone!!

Jenny

Yes, unfortunately the legal wedding must be done in Spanish (done by a judge). However they do translate it english (usually the WC). I personally think it adds to the unique experience of a destination wedding. wink.gif But after the legel stuff, i think they say you are man and wife, they will allow personally vows, before announing you Mr. and Mrs. to walk down the aisle. Just make sure to inform your WC at your inital meeting.

I am new to this board - I originally wanted to get married at Dreams Los Cabos and have been waiting for 8 months for the price to drop, but in the end it is just too expensive and I feel too guilty asking my guests to pay 2k a person.. after much search I think Azul Sensatori is the place for me! I plan to get married in April 2013.. am looking into rates/ availability now. Need to book ASAP.

 

I think I spent 10 hours yesterday reading posts on this board lol! It is sooo helpful so thank you all!!

 

I wanted to ask those who were already married here - is the sky terrace really windy since you are elevated? Would appreciate the feedback. Thanks so much!

 

To be very honest, the entire area is usually quite windy. More so on the Sky terrace, but there is always some wind on the beach.

Round tables of 8 comfortably. They do offer a sweetheart table, or a rectangle table for the head table (I only ever saw 2- so it might fit about 4 to each rectangle one)

I used "weddingwire".  It also lets me keep track of budget, guests, gifts, etc.  I've really liked it. Free, of course!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
