From what I understand it's not a straight $250 credit, so you cannot put the full amount towards one thing. It's more so a ploy to get you to spend more money. For example, you can use x amount towards a candlelight dinner, x amount towards upgraded wine... I would check with your TA how they allocate the money.

@@rebepax  my wedding Travel specialist just sent me this in the body of my question email. Although I am working with destinationweddings and even though it might be a different contract, I do not think things change much as far as following the resort credit.

 

"This is what it usually says in everyone’s travel documents:

 
$250 resort credit is based on two $50 upgraded wine credits, two $50 spa credits towards massage only and one $50 romantic candlelight dinner credit.
Credits are per room, per stay and are not combinable with  any other credits or vouchers.  Candlelight dinner credit not valid on Lobster Menu."

Hello Azul Sensatori brides!

 

 

What has your experience been with your wedding coordinators lately? I had been working with Lynda over the past 6 months and was pretty satisfied with her. Her response time was acceptable and she also seemed to understand my needs and update my details sheet quickly and accurately. Over the last month though ( ever since the changes they made) emails replies have taken 3 or more weeks and I am now working with several different people which is confusing and frustrating! I am fine with waiting a week....I understand how busy they must be, but with my wedding in 5 months, 3-4 wks to get a response to a simple question is just not ok. Have any of you experienced the same thing?

I have worked with Brigitte since day one and she has been great, she would always respond in 24 hours. Within the past month since the changes were made, it takes maybe 2-3 days, which is still fine. 3-4 weeks for a response is way too long! I have heard those same complaints though from others...

I have worked with Lynda prior to change and got responses usually in 4-5 days... Now that it's a team approach it takes about 1-2 days for a reply. I have no complaints.

have you guys tried contacting them through the chat on their website? I got a response right away the other day :)

 

I also have Brigitte and the longest she has taken so far was a week (right after all the stuff from Cabo) so I understand they're quite busy with that right now. She's the one that always responds to me and I haven't had any issues with her :)

We just had it on the plate it came on and it looked nice. They also provided us with a cutting set.

 

THANK YOU for that information! We won't bring a cutting set with us-one less thing to pack :)

@@raqpena Brigitte was originally my WC, and I have still only heard from her even after the team reorganization. It usually is 2 days-1 week to get a response, 3-4 weeks is way too long!

 

For the reception table set up it seems like there are round tables and the option of a sweetheart table. I'm wondering if anyone has considered doing a "head table" that includes their wedding party? We are having two bridesmaids and groomsmen, and I'm wondering if they would just put three of the sweetheart-sized tables together to make a "head table" type of thing. Thanks!

yes - they can set up a head table for you depending on the space available. they have long tables available, and I have seen some Karisma brides with the imperial style dining (one long table for a smaller party). So no problem!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
