How many fabric mesh bolts did you buy? 3? I'm looking to cover the Gazebo and possibly hanging for the reception.


@@LRosario - I was just looking at my nails today LMAO!!!

 

We aren't traditional either, actually I'm Buddhist, so chose the symbolic ceremony and I want to ask them if I can incorporate my chant at the end.


@@LRosario - I just realized you and I will be at the resort the same time! lol your wedding is Saturday and mine Friday! It's possible you and someone else caused the hotel to be sold out!

 

Also, some guests decided to stay off-site, well actually they were encouraged talking about it was expensive...i'll leave it alone. lol Some also waited last minute so, they found out in April the hotel was sold out.


@@amyzig2 - Congratulations girl! That's right around the corner!

 

Really? a charge for a run through?! *sigh* I'll ask anyway because I want to look like we know what we are doing. I along with my bridesmaids have training when it comes to movements, events, etc. So, we can do it ourselves if it's too much. lol

I don't think it was because of my wedding, LOL! We only booked 8 rooms. Some of my guest couldn't afford it and are also staying off site, so i understand. I'll also leave it alone, considering they had a year to save for it and spend money on much less important things. Ok, leaving it alone..... now! jajaja...

Yeah there isn't much information on how the ceremony goes. What the person conducting the ceremony will say and so on... I wish there was more info on that incase I wanted to change something. We aren't very traditional and would rather not do the traditional ceremony. We want something that represents us. My cuticles and nails know exactly how stressed I am. Poor things have seen better days. :-/

They meet with you once you get there and they fill in a spread sheet, the coordinator handles everything from there and they do a great job

Has anyone at Azul Sensatori used their "baby products".? I am told they have things (for a fee) like toys and monitors and such at the resort. But I can't seem to get a detail list of what these things are. We leave in 3 weeks so I am trying to determine what all I need to pack

 

Thanks!

 

Also if anyone has been to the resort with babies- is it ok to drink the milk? I am not sure if it is the same or not?

 

Thanks

Sorry for the delay. We have traveled with our little one and here is what I can remember: ***I think everything was free of charge, but you might have to request it.

 

In room:

Crib, bottle warmer, baby monitor (so you can sit on the patio and hear your little one), stroller, baby bath, bottle sanitizer, fridge, microwave.  * if any of these items are not in your room when you arrive, you can request them. As well, if the stroller is not what you need, go to the kids club and exchange it for a different one

 

Around the resort: the restaurants all have high chairs available at the front doors, and usually a few small toys. The kids club has a small area with toddler/infant toys which you can sign out for a day/week for your little one to play with. The kids wading pool is about knee deep, and slopes in from the sides, so an infant/toddler can sit at the edge and splash (this area is also mostly in the shade)

 

Food: the restaurants all have baby food in jars (purees in assorted favours) (this is included in your vacation package). The milk is fine for the little ones to drink. We usually took a few bottles to the bars and had them fill them up with milk. Then we kept them in our room fridge. This saved us from having to run all over the resort last minute. You can also request milk through room service (keep in mind, it will be brought in a glass. So order in number of glasses of milk you might want)

 

Babysitting: the sitters are usually the staff from the kids club. We have never had an issue. We had the sitter come to our room and watch our little one so we could enjoy a quiet dinner. I think the price was $12 US/hour (but it's been a few years), as well after 11pm there is an extra fee to pay for their taxi home.

 

@violetasi85. The resort is sold out my week too! We have 22 rooms though so that's a lot.

It doesn't always mean the hotel is sold out. Often rooms are sold in bunches to different charter companies, so they show the room as unavailable, but often it still is through a different agency. If you are looking for extra rooms, have your travel agent look through different vacation carriers.

Can anyone share the steam cost for your dress and the bridesmaids? I also want to pay for their makeup. I reached out to my rep from Karisma but I haven't heard back yet.

Make up is about $110 from what I understand. There's no special price for bridesmaids, they pay the same as the bride. Kinda lame, but I guess that's how they roll.

Si, señorita! I know it's crazy. I mean for the bride on her wedding day, ok. But for the bridesmaids, I think it's a bit much.

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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?
