Im getting 2 large centerpieces (blue orchids, hydrangea, and roses) then 4 small arrangements.  My wedding is very small so we are doing 2 long tables & a sweetheart table.  I'm just going to put my bouquet in a vase for the sweetheart table flowers.

Hi everyone!!

Loving this informative thread on AZS... only thing is it's so long I fear my question will be redundant!

I'm basically looking for a summary of all costs.

I've looked at the packages available for me in Canada:

Pearl $950

Silver $2500

Gold $3500

 

Looking at the gold package, there is SO many things that I don't want or need. Such as romantic candle light dinner, anything to do with our rooms like floral arrangement/petals etc and I think I will legally get married at home first.

 

Let's say I go with the Pearl package that includes (of the important things): WC, ceremony location, bridal bouquet, boutonniere, dinner reservations. I also want the Sky Terrace so that's an added $1700 for the ceremony, which I'm assuming includes music. Also need 4 bridesmaid floral arrangements.

 

Do these packages include the Reception? Or is that extra? By the sounds of it I want my reception at either Zavas Plaza or Zocalo al Fresco. (do both these locations allow for dancing?) And does anyone have additional details on the reception schedule? (how long?)

Also, DJ. Is that extra on top?

 

Basically I would love for someone to break down the Reception fees.

My other big expense would be photography, but I think I'll go with an outside source.

 

As for the set up fee chat that's going on.. I think mine would be very, very minimal, so I guess looking at $250. Do they provide anything at all? or do you get wood terrace structure, plain wood chairs, nothing hanging from anything, and bare-bones reception?

 

I thank any and all advice, and again, apologize if these details have been broken down in the past 1700+ forum pages :)

 

Basically the most important things are :

Ceremony Location - sky terrace

Music during ceremony

Cocktail hour during photos

Photographer

Dinner (anywhere - not that concerned, and not concerned about a cake)

Privater reception complete with DJ and dancefloor

Floral arrangements for Bride, bridesmaids and boutonniere for groom

 

Too much to ask for something reasonably affordable? :)

 

Thanks everyone!

The dinner that is included in all the packages is in the private area at Spoons restaurant.  It is for up to 40 people and there is no décor, except if your order centerpieces. There is also no DJ or music options.

A private reception is extra. Depending on the menu you choose, you pay a fee per person for the food and 4 hour open bar. The DJ is extra.

The ceremony has no décor and you pay additional for gazebo sheers, chair sashes, flowers etc.

The cocktail hour after the ceremony is something you would pay for unless Karisma is running a promotion at the time you reserve rooms, or you have a GIWC travel agent that can offer that for free.

You can find pricing at weddingsbylomastravel.com under "Planning and Ideas".

Check that out and then read through as many posts on this forum as you can to see ways other brides have saved money. I bought my own sheers for $17, my own chair sashes for $60, etc.

Best wishes!

Looks like I am going to have an uneven number of guests. How do you seat 42 guests plus the bride and groom? Could I do 4 tables of 9 plus one table of 8? Will the tables with 9 people be too crowded? We're having the BBQ Deluxe Buffet so food will not be set out on the tables. Help!

I recall seeing earlier that tables of nine can be pretty tight. Perhaps that was on the official thread.

I stumbled across this thread awhile ago and thought it may be helpful to you for budgeting. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/topic/74241-budget-and-planning-thread-azul-sensatori/

 

As others mentioned the lomas website http://www.weddingsbylomastravel.com/planning/ is very helpful for pricing on decor and the private banquet kit that shows private reception meal costs is available on the azul hotel website.

 

My costs for the gold package, a private reception and s'mores beach bonfire event was $7,600.00 USD. I would check out the official sensatori thread on here too as it includes really good basic information and doesn't have as many convo posts. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/topic/72018-official-azul-sensatori-thread/

 

Hope that helps,

Michelle

@@JMK923 your pictures are great! So pretty. I have a few questions bc your ceremony set up is very similar to what I would like. How much were your flowers on the gazebo? You may have done a package, so this may be a stupid question. Did you bring the sashes or sheers or anything like that yourself? What about your mr and mrs sign? Did you bring those? Thanks so much! Congrats on your marriage!

Hello Brides,


 


I am getting married on Nov 8th, 2014 @ 11am at Azul Fives.  I am expecting around 80+ guest (maybe close to 100).  I've selected the "Always and Forever" wedding package.  This package has minimal decorations and I am interested in adding my own touches.  I've read a few responses suggesting to bring your own decorations with setup fee of $250.  My biggest concern is traveling with the decorations and favors for guest.  I do have a wedding planner who will be traveling with me to the resort.  Should I have her bring these items?  I just don't want to be stressed out over this when traveling.


 


We are planning to do the private event/reception following the wedding.  I haven't yet decided the location as our wedding is taking place in the AM.  My fiance and I are just really excited about being able to have so many family and friends attend our wedding.  We both LOVE to party and would really like a fun filled reception.  I hoped to add my own decorations to this as well.  Does anyone have any opinions regarding the DJ?  The cost is like $1500-$2000.  Pretty steep for a DJ that I am not familiar with.  I did read somewhere that you are able to send them music (happy about that).  I've also heard from some past brides who used the DJ that they would have also been okay using the IPOD & Speaker setup.


 


Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.


 


Thanks!

Jenny - the tables of 9 will be too crowded. I would split them up a little more - tables of 7, some of 8, or even some of 6. and with the buffet, maybe consider NOT assigning tables, except for reserving a couple of immediate family, and another for the bridal party (if you're having one).

 

we had people cancel at the last minute, so we had 1 table of 8, 1 of 6, 1 of 4, etc. just the way it all worked out... don't stress over it!

I'd say it's totally up to you, and how much you are already bringing with you.

 

We had quite the haul of stuff when we went. My mom took 1 suitcase down for us, and we basically carried the rest. We had my dress and backpack as a carryon, my husband had a rollerboard with our favors and his computer bag as his carry on. then we had 4 suitcases that we checked, plus the 1 my mom brought. While it was a lot to juggle - we really just juggled it to the check in counter, and then through bagged claim/customs in Mexico. It was a bit of a pain, but certainly not uber stressful.

 

We were able to consolidate coming back, since we didn't have the wedding favors and OOT bag contents. I rolled up my dress and put it into one of the extra suitcases too.

 

In the end, the cost of checking the additional suitcases and bringing my own decoration was still a cost saver vs. getting the items from Lomas. And of course some of those items can be recycled to other brides.

 

As for the DJ, I used DJ All Music and we had a great time. You can check out videos & testamonials for each of their DJ options on the Lomas website too.

Thanks for the info!  I'm more than certain that I will be doing the same.  Lomas prices are just too expensive for what they offer.  Our splurge expense is our photographer who we will be bring with us and paying for his room expense.  

 

I will check out the DJ options on the Lomas website.  I noticed that your wedding date is nearly around the same time we are having our wedding.  How was the weather?  The ceremony is in the Garden Gazebo and since it is a morning wedding we having decided on a reception location.  Based on your experience, what would you suggest?

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
