We chose plated for the cost vs. Buffet; also because in the US buffets are cheaper and the perception is different. Buffets can be more laid back and give more food options, it depends on your type of reception and how you envision it either way works I would say... Let your bud give you that decision.

@@BecomingaRiggio we are going the BBQ deluxe bc I liked the variety of food you recieved for the price, it gives everyone an option of things they may like instead of forcing someone to have either fish or beef. Also it'sore laid back and that's kinda the feel we want. Plus we only have about 30 guests now haha

We decided to do the BBQ Deluxe and we added on lobster tail. I've heard great things about their grill. I think this gave a wide variety of options for the guests. Dinner will also move quicker, more time for the party! It also gives a variety of desserts so I do not have to get as big of a cake.

I'm just being nosey, never seen such a thing, I just assumed it was it's old building or maybe above the lobby!

It looks beautiful and a ceremony plus cocktail up there would be awesome - yay!

We offered a cocktail before the ceremony and a champagne toast after on the Sky Deck. It was fabulous! The view is awesome. Plus, I didn't have to worry about sand in my shoes if we had married on the beach. The pre-ceremony drinks, ceremony and champagne toasts took about an hour. Then, everyone moved to Zocola Terrace for cocktails and appetizers while my husband and I took pictures on the beach and around the resort. By the time we got to the reception, everyone was very, very relaxed and happy!post-267894-0-76064500-1424359844_thumb.jpg

@@Jennypert looks like everyone had a great time

 

@@BecomingaRiggio I am having a sit down because from the get go I knew that is what I wanted. I'm going down in March to confirm my menu so unless the buffets blow me away and it's a must then I'm going with sit down. I just think the way they plate food will really wow my guest so that is another reason and I do not want guest standing in a line. To me it is interesting that the buffet is more expensive but everyone raves about it

@janjin- ok cool. I am from the DC area!! This cold weather sucks!! Yes, and we still have not had anyone book :(

 

Yes, the table decor is expensive. I am looking for other alternatives but I really do not want to pack decor to bring with me.

 

AWW!! Exciting!! How did your dress shopping go? My sister is coming to DC this weekend so we are going to go on Saturday or Monday.

 

 

 

FYI- I asked about the make-up artist and hair stylist coming to the suite to do make-up and hair and they add a 20% service fee to the total. @@Ydolem

 

Have you looked into photography? I am really scared that the quality will not be good. I have looked at the pricing and packages but do not know who to choose.

 

 


Hey Ladies!

 

Can anyone recommend or give me advice on photographers and/or Djs for Azul Sensatori Mexico? I have read bad and good reviews on many photographers and djs so I am torn on who to select for my big day! Also, paying the waiver fee does not seem like an option. Any advice would help.

 

thank you :)

I am using @Pixan Photographer. I feel really comfortable with Jonathan. His rates are very reasonable too. you would incur a vendor fee. For me, in the grand scheme of things, i felt highly uncomfortable using a photog i wasnt completely sold on. Bringing my own DJ. He will be a guest for more than 3 nights.

 

Dinner, i had already decided on plated and response cards have been sent but now there are 97 guests. I just wanna party. Less time for dinner sounds good to me

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
