Thank you ever so much for the information. I just wished Sensatori did more of a package so everything wasn't as separate!!

Completely understand about the ocean but if we can find a nicer beach and just as nice hotel that would obviously be lovely. Just doing my research which I'm pretty sick of at the moment lol takes over your life a little doesn't it.

Totally understand the overwhelming part! LOL There are lots of great resorts, just trying to find the one the offers the most of what you need is tricky. Some of the advantages to Sensatori- size (not to big or too small, just over 400 rooms), the staff and service is amazing (I travel A LOT, and it still is in our top 3), the food is fantastic (again, been to a lot of resorts and this is by FAR the best food we have ever had!), the wedding staff on site are really  good and professional (the Miami based ones that you have to deal with before you head down though are the pits), the airport is easy to get to from multiple locations and the resort is only 30 minute drive.

 

If you don't mind larger hotels, you can also check out the Dreams resorts or Grand Pallidium resorts in the area (the beaches are nicer, but they are hotels with between 800-1200 rooms). Or for adults only, Excellence is beautiful.

Ok shall check those out! I really do love Sensatori it's just the beach and lack of package deal. It's a real shame though. If we wasn't so focuses on the beach being our main requirement would of def gone for it!!

How much were hair and makeup? Thanks!

I just got back from my wedding there. I know that I was very concerned about hair and makeup and all being done on time but I have to say I was very impressed by the spa staff.  There were 6 of us and we were all in and out in 2 hours. The hair and makeup was awesome and we were all in the same room together. They brought champagne and snacks and were very attentive. We did pay a lot for this service but I feel it was worth it.  I will post a full review and pics soon. :)

Our Mexico wedding isn't until May 14th but we got married in the ICU in NJ right before my husbands father passed and had another ceremony for his Mom, who is terminally ill with Cancer and, sadly won't be in attendance in Mexico.

Have any of you ladies seen, done, or plan do do any type of memorial at your wedding? I was thinking an empty seat with flowers? Does anyone have any better ideas? I don't know what, if anything would be appropriate :,(

Both his parents and mine have passed away. We used custom engraved memorial candles as part of our Sand Ceremony as a way to have them present symbolically. The AS wedding planner had the candles lit and moved to the entry table for the reception. You can get the engraved candle holders at Weddingstar.com.

Hi! My father also passed away and I plan on having a sign that reads "I know you would be here today if heaven weren't so far away". Maybe having it on the altar with a candle or at the table where the guest book would be. Haven't decided that part yet. They have the signs on Etsy.com. very cute! I also plan on putting my dad's picture in a charm and adding it to my bouquet so that he can walk with me down the isle. In my opinion having the empty chair makes it very visible that someone is missing and might make the mood of your wedding sad. You want people to be happy and you and your husband to be the focus, not the people that have passed away.

My father passed away many years ago, and similar to you, my mother is in a nursing home and unable to attend (we were married by a judge in front of her). For me personally, I didn't want to have a huge reminder that they were missing the day (it was hard enough to deal with loss), so I found someone who personalized a small photo charm of my parents on their wedding day and attached it to my bouquet. It was my PRIVATE way of including them, without drawing attention to it.

 

Perhaps since it is relating more to the groom, ask him. Does he want a public symbol or perhaps something more private? Perhaps a custom embroidered handkerchief with their names to slip into his suit pocket. An old fashioned pocket watch with their names on it. Cufflinks with their initials.

My father in law is currently in Hospice care and we are getting married in June. We will have the same issue. I love the idea of something private for us to honor him with. My hubby-to-be is not wearing a suit but I'm sure we will come up with something charming like the ones @@murmel mentioned. The pocket watch actually still could work for us, so thanks for that idea!

    • 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?
