As my wedding day gets closer I have started to check the weather like a mad woman. Right now it's not looking good for me = ( they are showing rain 3 days leading up to the wedding and rain on my wedding day. I'm hoping it will change beings that it is 15 days out, but do any brides know of alternative ceremony locations at the resort? I never really asked, I have seen reception locations but not ceremony locations. Ugh I will be soooooo bummed if it rains the whole trip!! I'm not the type of bride who minds rain, just not every single day!
So the alternative ceremony is at the garden rooftop lounge which is cute! The reception alternative locations are just normal banquet rooms.

Also wondering...do we have to feed the photographer?  

The official Bridal roll call list is being kept up to date on the official thread: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/84306/official-azul-sensatori-thread/10#post_1858611

 

Yes, it is usually considered polite to feed the photographer...if you are paying them to take photographs of the reception. Enquire with your WC since I have been told they have special meals for vendors which are cheaper (a sort of boxed meal).

If you just want the wedding ceremony and a couple of formal family poses an hour will be fine. But if you want any special ones, or photos of getting ready you will want to add a few hours.

Hi Ladies!  Our group contract 30 days is up today and we already have about 40+ people coming to Mexico!  cheesy.gif 

 

We are getting married on May 3, 2014 at the Azul Sensatori... I know that I have a bride twin....Does anyone know who that might be?!?! 

 

So excited to begin the planning of all the decor elements and start shopping for dresses.  This is so exciting and we are really overwhelmed by the amount of support from our friends and families.  Looking forward to getting lots of input and info from all of the ladies on the forum... It's been a huge help already!

Check the official thread to see who your twin is under the Bridal Roll call section: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/84306/official-azul-sensatori-thread/10#post_1858611

They told me my dress would be considered my carry on, not my personal item and I would only have a place to store it if the plane has a closet(which they could not tell me) and if the airline stewardesses were accommodating. I was a little annoyed by this. They even suggested I put it in a box and put it in with checked luggage!! I was appalled! Can any other bride share there plane experience with me so I know what to expect. Thanks ladies!

I have answered this on the official thread. But don't panic your dress will be fine!

If you look at the Official thread under the wedding location section there is a photo of the rooftop terrace/theatre area which is the backup location for rain weather! It's actually quite nice and has a beautiful view! http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/84306/official-azul-sensatori-thread/10#post_1858611

 

But don't panic the weather changes constantly in Mexico! So don't stress to much, get down there and wait and see msnwink.gif

You should definitely feed the photographer... They have a vendor meal that you can ask your wedding coordinator to have for them it's a sandwich, soda, and chips I believe.

So on my plane they did not have a closet so I just looked in the overhead bins for one that had small carry ons and just layed my dress over the top of them all and it did get a little bit squished but I had a girlfriend bring her mini clothes steamer and she just steamed it before the wedding and it worked out just fine. You can also have the hotel steam and press it I believe it was around $25 to do that there

BOOKED FOR SEPT 2014

 

Hi everyone we have just booked our wedding  and would love any advice on extras and reception ideas. We have all never been to mexico before and scared leaving my planning to somebody else.

 

Its only a small wedding so instead of the 'spoons' restaurant we want to arrange something a little more special any ideas ?/ I no in the book it mentions something about a beach picnic is there any other options ideas etc.. ?? 

My mum wondered if there was a boat hire for the evening or something ?? 

 

 

We have gone for a 4 pm wedding thinking that would be a good time as we have all the morning to sort stuff out ?

 

I am waiting for the wedding co-oridinator to get in touch I no there is a few extras that people can get like photos make up hair and decor etcc.. (I'm guessing the prices with them will be hugggggeee !! ) any recommendations ??? 

 

Any other advice or ideas would be brilliant thank-you way in advance :) woot2.gif

 

 

Would love to hear how other Brides have gotten on and how you all made your day your own :) xxx

I'm in the process of booking our rooms - i'm curious what other people have done. My Fiance wants the top floor ocean view that we have been seeing in all the photos, but I want to make sure I have room for everyone when i'm getting ready day of.

 

What rooms classifications are the majority of people going with?

Congrats!! I was told by my TA to do the swim out suite since it is such a unique room that you will not be able to get any many other resorts. Depending on you package you may qualify for the bridal suite three hour prior to your wedding  near the spa where you will have an attendant and it will be more than enough room to fit you and your Bmaids. Also the cool thing about the swim up suites is that all of the guests can get them as well and it will be liek having your own private stretch of pool, that you can all hang out in.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
