Hi Murmel,

 

Can you please find out if chair covers are standard for the Sky Terrace option?  Also, I bought 60 inch x 25 yard bolts of organza fabric for the old gazebo.  Can you find out if these will still work?  Pictures of the new gazebo and set up at Zavas Plaza will also be appreciated.  Thanks.  Have fun in the warm weather in January!!

That's great. The white chair covers and bows will look nice with the red silk flower pomanders I bought on Etsy. I only got 10 to loop over the chairs on the aisle. Thanks a lot.

For the ladies getting married later in the week, I will post an update after our wedding to let you know how it goes. I'm not overly concerned for us on Nov 11 because the forecast isn't looking great anyway... So I am sure we will be moved to an indoor space. At the end of the day, I am sure they will find a spot on the resort that fits each of our weddings! I had been hoping for an outdoor beach wedding, but as long as I am surrounded by happy family and friends - that is all that matters! :) On a seperate note - if anyone wants table number holders (we have 12) or paper lanterns with LEDs (colors: light blue, turquoise and white), let me know!

Hi Stacy, Hope your trip was fantastic! Do you have pictures of the paper lanterns with leds in them? If you have not gotten rid of them i may be interested :)

ame="TaraHall" url="/t/23412/azul-sensatori-brides-post-here/16650#post_1923547"] Tara- Thank you for the compliments! :) We had 30 people (mostly in their twenties and very early thirties- but also our 2 year old, and 8 year old, 12 year old and then a group of our parents and their friens age ranging from 62-70). We felt like there was something for EVERYONE. We did host a couple events but you definitely don't need to play host all week. We also had one couple (our best man) who was celebrating their 3rd anniversary during the week and the resort was a nice enough size that they were able to sneak away and be alone when they wanted to. We all played beach volleyball everyday, the kids thought they were so cool ordering virgin drinks at the swim up bar. At night, we smoked hookah and went to plenty of live entertainment and even a casino night one night. It was the best vacation and every one of my guests said so. It was also by far the best resort food I have ever had. Hope this helps!

It sounds like you had a amazing time! Congratulations!!!!! Do you mind me asking if you guys did the hookah , casino night, and the live entertinment at the hotel, or did you guys go somewhere for it?

Hi! We did all those things right at the resort. We didn't go anywhere else at all. A couple of our friends did some excursions and said they were awesome. We just didn't have time (especially with our 2 year old.) ps- I just re read that post and I meant to say "our 2 year old, AN 8 year old and a 12 yr old" the older kids are not mine! Lol. There are my niece and nephew. :) best of luck!

What is everyone doing about flowers?

 

Im not happy with the Lomas selection.  Expensive and mediocre.  Is or has anyone ordered flowers from outside the resort and brought them in?

 

I read on other resort forums that brides were about to have the flowers delivered to the lobby and just went out to pick them up. I've been in touch with a local florist who is offering amazing prices for orchids.  Lomas would like me to pay for my first child for those flowers.

I was worried about flowers from the resort also. I had asked some brides that were already married at my resort and they said they have so many more options once you get to the resort and can sit down with the wedding coordinator.  So maybe talk to other brides or even your resort wedding coordinator?

After reading several planning threads on this site, I decided to make my own bouquets. Afloral.com has many silk bouquets at great prices. I found Dahlia (the Mexican national flower) on clearance for $6.99 I bought several and took them apart and made smaller bridesmaid bouquets and corsages for our mothers. I bought one green orchid bouquet for $8.99 and twelve real touch ivory roses from Hobby Lobby for $3.00 each and combined them to make my bouquet. I bought a cheaper silk ivory rose bouquet ($9.99 at Michael's) and used some of the of the orchids to make a throw bouquet. Hobby Lobby runs 50% off sales and I bought the groom and groomsmen rose bouteniers for about $1.50 each. I tried to make centerpieces but I didn't like them. Instead I borrowed one former bride's idea and will order more small hanging corsages ($45) to decorate the ceremony aisle chairs and have them placed on each table as a centerpiece with votive candles around them I found votive candles (about 2.5 inches tall in glass) in a twelve pack for $5.99 at Hobby Lobby and I used a 40% off coupon.

Lola-- those sound awesome! send pics when you are done with the centerpieces/ corsages! I'm still struggling to decide what I want to do with centerpieces-- I'm going to reuse my bouquets for some of the centerpieces but i'll need about 4 more to have centerpieces for all the tables. There are so many ideas out there-- pinterest is so addictive.

 

JMK-- have you posted a review yet?!? I couldn't see those pics because i don't have enough posts. boo! :( lol I can't wait to hear how everything went down!!

For those of you who have previously purchased the fabric for the chairs and to cover the gazebo (I am not sure what to call it)... What fabric did you purchase, where, and how much did you bring with you? Thank you!

I just emailed them today about the flowers I wanted, but I also wasnt impressed by what they had to offer and the amount. I may look into making my own. Do you have a link to the handing corsages that you are talking about?

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa. Favorite people at the resort were Paola (wedding planner), Vividiana (check in), Veronica and Marisol (spa). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RaFb19Pbn8tDvNY3_GSoZ8DX0plYaT_F

       
    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
    • What is BMI? Body Mass Index ( BMI index ) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. For children and teens, BMI is age- and sex-specific and is often referred to as BMI-for-age. In children, a high amount of body fat can lead to weight-related diseases and other health issues and being underweight can also put one at risk for health issues. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but research has shown that BMI is correlated with more direct measures of body fat, such as skinfold thickness measurements, bioelectrical impedance, densitometry (underwater weighing), dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and other methods1,2,3. BMI can be considered an alternative to direct measures of body fat. In general, BMI is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening for weight categories that may lead to health problems. How is BMI calculated for children and teens? Calculating BMI using the BMI Percentile Calculator involves the following steps: Measure height and weight. Refer to Measuring Children’s Height and Weight Accurately At Home for guidance. Use the Child and Teen BMI Calculator to calculate BMI. The BMI number is calculated using standard formulas. What is a BMI percentile and how is it interpreted? After BMI is calculated for children and teens, it is expressed as a percentile which can be obtained from either a graph or a percentile calculator (see links below). These percentiles express a child’s BMI relative to children in the U.S. who participated in national surveys that were conducted from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Because weight and height change during growth and development, as does their relation to body fatness, a child’s BMI must be interpreted relative to other children of the same sex and age. The BMI-for-age percentile growth charts are the most commonly used indicator to measure the size and growth patterns of children and teens in the United States. BMI-for-age weight status categories and the corresponding percentiles were based on expert committee recommendations and are shown in the following table.   Weight Status Category Percentile Range Underweight Less than the 5th percentile Normal or Healthy Weight 5th percentile to less than the 85th percentile Overweight 85th to less than the 95th percentile Obese Equal to or greater than the 95th percentile   How is BMI used with children and teens? For children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool and is used to screen for potential weight and health-related issues. For example, a child may have a high BMI for their age and sex, but to determine if excess fat is a problem, a health care provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include skinfold thickness measurements, evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other appropriate health screenings. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children beginning at 2 years old. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. BMI online Is BMI interpreted the same way for children and teens as it is for adults? BMI is interpreted differently for children and teens even though it is calculated as weight ÷ height2. Because there are changes in weight and height with age, as well as their relation to body fatness, BMI levels among children and teens need to be expressed relative to other children of the same sex and age. These percentiles are calculated from the CDC growth charts, which were based on national survey data collected from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Obesity is defined as a BMI at or above the 95th percentile for children and teens of the same age and sex. For example, a 10-year-old boy of average height (56 inches) who weighs 102 pounds would have a BMI of 22.9 kg/m2. This would place the boy in the 95th percentile for BMI, and he would be considered to have obesity. This means that the child’s BMI is greater than the BMI of 95% of 10-year-old boys in the reference population. For adults, BMI is interpreted as weight status categories that are not dependent on sex or age. Read more: How to interpret BMI for adult BMI Why can’t healthy weight ranges be provided for children and teens? Normal or healthy weight weight status is based on BMI between the 5th and 85th percentile on the CDC growth chart. It is difficult to provide healthy weight ranges for children and teens because the interpretation of BMI depends on weight, height, age, and sex. What are the BMI trends for children and teens in the United States? The prevalence of children and teens who measure in the 95th percentile or greater on the CDC growth charts has greatly increased over the past 40 years. Recently, however, this trend has leveled off and has even declined in certain age groups. To learn more about child and teen obesity trends, visit Childhood Obesity Facts. How can I tell if my child is overweight or obese? CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens age 2 through 19 years. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. Although BMI is used to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool. To determine whether the child has excess fat, further assessment by a trained health professional would be needed. For information about the consequences of childhood obesity, its contributing factors and more, see Tips for Parents – Ideas and Tips to Help Prevent Childhood Obesity. Can I determine if my child or teen is obese by using an adult BMI calculator? In general, it’s not possible to do this. The adult calculator provides only the BMI value (weight/height2) and not the BMI percentile that is needed to interpret BMI among children and teens. It is not appropriate to use the BMI categories for adults to interpret the BMI of children and teens. However, if a child or teen has a BMI of ≥ 30 kg/m2, the child is almost certainly obese. A BMI of 30 kg/m2 is approximately the 95th percentile among 17-year-old girls and 18-year-old boys. My two children have the same BMI values, but one is considered obese and the other is not. Why is that? The interpretation of BMI varies by age and sex. So if the children are not the same age and the same sex, the interpretation of BMI has different meanings. For children of different age and sex, the same BMI could represent different BMI percentiles and possibly different weight status categories. See the following graphic for an example for a 10-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy who both have a BMI-for-age of 23. (Note that two children of different ages are plotted on the same growth chart to illustrate a point. Normally the measurement for only one child is plotted on a growth chart.)  
    • Whether your relatives were especially generous with their checks or you intentionally set up a cash registry, let’s be perfectly clear: There’s no right or wrong way to spend your wedding gift money.  So sit down and start talking to ensure you’re both on the same page, then check out some of our favorite ideas for spending (and saving) those dollars wisely. Be Sensible About the Long Run
      Sometimes it pays to be a responsible adult, even if it seems boring on the surface. Before that cash starts burning a hole in your pocket, it’s a good idea to “pay yourselves first.” That means paying down debt (especially if you racked up any for the wedding itself), starting a rainy day savings fund, or even contributing to your retirement accounts. It might feel like a lifetime away, but one day you’ll both be glad you made such a sound investment. Save Up for Something Big
      A wedding windfall offers the perfect opportunity to get the two of you closer to a future goal you’ve been dreaming of. It can be as immediate as investing in much-needed new furniture (you can finally dump that lumpy old mattress!), or as far down the road as saving up for a home. Or maybe you want to buy a new car—especially if that sporty two-seater you’re currently driving doesn’t exactly match up with your plans to have kids. Whatever the goal, working toward something together will only serve to strengthen your relationship. Bright idea: Want to put your wedding wedding toward a down payment on a house? Consider opening a certificate of deposit (CD), especially if you’re not planning to buy for a few years. CDs tend to offer higher interest rates than savings accounts—and since you can’t touch the money for a set period of time, it’s useful if you’re usually tempted to tap into your savings for more immediate needs. Have a Little Fun
      Once you’ve got the future squared away, it’s okay to treat yourselves—so go ahead and enjoy a mini splurge that’ll benefit both of you. Reserve a small amount to put toward a shared interest, like a high-tech wine fridge or top-of-the-line home theater system. Or if the two of you have been texting each other pictures of golden doodle puppies for weeks, and you’re serious about raising a dog or cat, visit your local shelter or check out reputable breeders to find a new four-legged friend. Allocating a bit of the funds for something exciting maintains a healthy balance in your spending habits, making long-term financial wellness more achievable. (You know what they say about all work and no play.) Bright idea: Take a class together. Having a common interest helps you grow as a couple, so pick something you both want to learn, like a foreign language, and enjoy that extra quality time.
