Hey Ladies-

I am contemplating booking Azul Sensatori - I have read nothing but amazing reviews - so close to pulling the trigger.  

 

I want a reception indoors so as not to have to deal with the heat.  Is the ballroom in bad shape?  Has anyone been there recently to provide an honest review?  Any thoughts on reconsidering if the wedding will be in Oct/Nov for moving outdoors?

 

Also, in a lot of the videos, we noticed a ton of wind on the Sky Deck - is it always bad/as bad as it sounds in some of the videos?

 

Thanks in advance!

@ACJCWed- please check out the official thread:

http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/topic/72018-official-azul-sensatori-thread/

There are lots of photos and info to help you with your decision. The ballroom is the standard hotel ballroom. With a little decor, it can be anything you want.

 

As for the wind, yes, there is always some wind which comes off the ocean. Usually the higher you are, the stronger it feels.

I was married on the Sky Deck and had my reception in the Grand Ballroom on June 6, 2014. It was fairly windy and at one point, I thought my veil was going to fly away. My sister (maid of honor) stepped up close behind and held it down. None of the hurst noticed but told me later they were grateful for the breeze since it was very hot and humid. The day before the wedding we changed the reception from Plaza Zavas to the Grand Ballroom. It had been raining and was very hot and humid. There was also rain in the forecast so we decided not to take a chance. We were very happy with our decision. The wedding coordinators took all of my decoration and moved it to the Ballroom. They strung the lights and lanterns from the ceiling and it was beautiful. Plus, we had a truly private space in a cool, air conditioned room. My guests danced and danced some more. They said it was the best party ever. Here are a few photos of the ballroom plus one of us during the ceremony.

Hi all!

I am working on deciding hours with my photographer. How many hours has everyone booked with their photographer?

Also if the photographer brigs an assistant do you have to pay two vendor fee for the both of them?

@@carrieandsam - great question - I'm trying to figure out the same thing.  What does your wedding timeline look like?  My ceremony is scheduled for 4.  I'd really like to have pictures for the following events:

 

- bride and groom getting ready

- first look

- ceremony

- family/friends portraits

- first dance / parent dances

- speech/toasts

- some of the partying

 

Seems like a lot once I think of it.

@@Jennypert Lovely :) Congrats!!!

 

@@carrieandsam 6 hours is enough but if you want to add more to your package you could. No, you do not need to pay a another vendor fee for the assistant. Your photographer will give you the name(s) of the assistant (s) and they will be registered  at the entrance gate when they come in as your photography team.

Just got a new wedding coordinator, she is not very helpful (Her name is Ivis). 

Also will not let me have the rehearsal dinner anywhere BUT Spoon. Has anyone else run into this issue?

Hi Ladies,

I hope you are all well. I took a hiatus because according to fiance I have become a tyrant. We also traveled to Florida for our shower. Will attach a pic. We are all slowly creeping up on our dates. I will be better at responding and giving feedback. Whover said this should be the best time of my life is sadly mistaken. Our guest count went from 43 to 97. I let go of the extra rooms to avoid possibly having to change menu's. Now i am thinking about doing a buffet rather than plated becasue i am afraid plated meal will take forever. Thoughts on this? Still wokring on decorations. Need 12 centerpieces and only found 8. @carriendsam i found them at HomeGoods. Only 8 though. Bummer. How did your samples arrive fromm bloombridal? Have you picked centerpieces?

OOT bags, thank goodness my sister in law has offered to take over that project.

 

Overall still excited just overwhelmed

Oops forgot to attach picpost-278682-142422272511_thumb.jpgpost-278682-142422273076_thumb.jpg

Just noticed you are from Texas. I am from Tyler, Texas but now reside in Newport Beach, CA

Lovely pics from the shower, looks like you both had fun:)

The samples I received from bloombridal are great. I might use the individual stem roses to create small centerpieces to accent the oversized lamp/candle fixture I want for the centerpieces. I attached the picture below. I would probably do half of the rose steams in the picture just because if I do the same amount then it would cost the same if not more to use the bloom bridal stems. 

I'm going down in March so hopefully I will make the final decision after seeing the location.

 

If anybody has any suggestions I will take them :)

 

-Carrie

We used our rehearsal dinner as a brunch and held it at Zavas. Not sure if that was why we were allowed to hold it elsewhere (since it was not dinner??).

 

@Jennypert- Could I please use the 2 photos of the ballroom in the official thread? It is one of the few photos I have seen of the ballroom decorated.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
