@@lauralc I heard this is the new policy across the board. I would advise you no to move 14 people out the resort  on your wedding day, very stressful. If you feel strongly about not having the resort doing your hair and makeup them, you can leave perhaps with no more than 5 people (the closest to you) because it usually takes 1 hour for hair and makeup per person. Unless they have more than 2 or 3 if the 14 people go out..I think that will inconvenience some

 

@@LuluMai22 how about some shells, candles (voltives) and sand nicely put together for centerpieces? I did my own trial at home and it looks nice. how about re using your bridesmaids bouquets for centerpieces? and rent the vases at $10 each from Lomas? or bring them from home with from the dollar store

Hi gals! We are getting married at Azul Sensatori in September. 

 

We are on a super tight budget so I am going crazy trying to find ways to cut costs at Sensatori. The prices they charge for the add-ons  are outrageous!

 

I have a million questions but I'd like to start asking what you have done for centerpieces and decorations! I am concerned about  how heavy they will be and customs restrictions.

 

I am also worried about the bouquets.

 

Any ideas or pictures to share? 

 

 

For my tables, I bought maracas (Amois.com), personalized shot glasses (discountmugs.com), chair sashes (tableclothfactory.com), and sparkly red votive candles (Pier 1 after Christmas sale).  I ordered centerpiece flowers and rose petals from Karisma.  Even after buying fresh flowers, the cost a fraction of the price I would have paid if I had gone with one of the decoration packages.  I have heard of brides who bought silk flowers for their bouquets but I wanted real roses.  As long as you don't need something special or exotic, the resort does a nice job. I'm having trouble uploading pictures today but will send some soon.

Soo quick question, for those of you who didn't use a DJ, did you rent the speakers and do it that way with your own music? I also saw that they have a Bose sound system you can rent but it doesn't look big enough... and you can only rent that for two hours. I thought i read somewhere that the speaker rental only had an iPhone 4s compatibility. My fiance is a musician and has his own bose sound system and i am tempted to bring that down but what to know everyone's thoughts first!

@ atyson03- we rented the sound system for 4 hours. It worked really well for us. They had large speakers, a microphone and it connected to our iPod. (if they say it only connects to iPhone 4....you could always buy a Iphone4 to iPhone5 connector here and bring it with you) When we got married we had our cousin MC, but there was a staff member who sat and controlled the sound system for us. He turned on the music and then would fade it as someone came up to use the microphone. We had made playlists at home - dinner 1, dinner 2, dancing 1, dancing 2, etc. That way someone just had to select a playlist and hit play.

 

We did bring down a compact sound system (similar to a Bose dock) and used that at our cocktail party. It was loud enough for that type of event. But I think for the dinner/dancing/speeches I was really glad we had the larger system and the microphone.

Question about flowers, for those of you who brought silk flowers down, how did you transport them without getting crushed? also if you got real flowers from Lomas, were you able to customize how you wanted the bouquets to look?

 

I am on the fence between the silk and the real and need help hah!

@@atyson03 YES, I am getting married in 24 days and YES I was able to customize them to my colors, they will work with you (I am confident they will match my pics) silk flowers were not cheap and that is why I did not take that route, plus shipping them to Mexico. so I went real


@@LaurenR I do...give me a few and will post the PDF.

Yes, I sent the pictures to the Miami team, they added ALL my details to the wedding file and samples of my colors and special requests.  I am not a picky person when it comes to flowers, in fact I don't know much about them, my rule #1 one and #2were: real flowers and match my colors, I feel comfortable going with them.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
