Fear not, I believe Javier is your on site coordinator!

 

Javier was the coordinator for our wedding last year. I worked with him for about a year prior to the big day and I had the opportunity to meet him when we arrived at the resort.

 

I think there was a shift about 2 years ago that moved planning away from Miami and into the hands of each resort instead.

 

With that said, there is an on site team that handles the actual set up so you will be handed over to them once you arrive.

Yes, I have Marco and I believe that he is on site as he’s told me he’s gone and looked at things himself. So I think (hopefully) they’ve eliminated coordinators offsite.

@@LeanneP Thanks! I was still hearing mixed feedback about the off-site coordinators - some indicated they were still around. And when I called Javier, the Phone # is registered to Miami area. Javier has been pretty good to work with for the last year or so. 

 

now I just have to get my stuff together and start wrapping up the details.

100 days to go!

 

Just a year ago we had selected Azul as our resort and I was working Save the Dates! can't believe we only have 100 days until we are official Mr and Mrs!

also - queue the panic - so many little things to get done! made major headway on the OOT bags this weekend.

anyone not use the free semi-private event included in the package? or better yet, not a host a formal welcome dinner?

 

The free semi-private event is maximum 50 guests, but we have 62. So either we host the event on a different day (Wed or Sun) when fewer guests are at the resort, or we exclude people - both options feel crappy to me. So after talking with FH and MOH and a few other friends - we're deciding to scrap the semi-free event all together. Yes, it's a perk that get, but who cares.

 

Instead, we're going to have an informal cocktail hour at one of the resort bars on Thursday evening. This lets our guests stop by if and when they want. I know this sounds 'cheap' and we should really spend more to make their travel to Mexico worthwhile, but some guests are only there for 3 days, and I feel like a jerk if I schedule dinner Thursday and the wedding is Friday, that only leaves them Saturday to enjoy their vacation and do their own thing.

. No, I used mine for my rehearsal dinner so it was very intimate with about 30 people

Hello!

 

I have a quick question about the "Cash for Your Bash" promotion predictor. Based on the amount of rooms we could potentially fill, it says we could get $8,400 in wedding credits in the Room category. It says: Apply this amount towards the balance of your final rooming list, saving you big on the final cost of your room.

 
 
Does anyone know what this means, or how this works? Is this credit towards the room of the Bride and Groom? Your guests as a whole? (so that would be around $200 distributed to each room?). 
 
Thanks!

everything my TA has told me is that the room credits is a check back to you after the trip. So 14-30 days after you leave the resort, they send you a check for the room credits. the credit is only applied to rooms with 2 adults (single rooms or rooms with 1 adult + 1 child do not count towards the credit). My TA has been very cautious about using the Cash for your Bash Credit $$ - she says it often changes and is often a bit lower than the website, depending on rooms booked, nights stayed, and your contract. 

 

we had to pay our room balance in full a few weeks ago. 

 

Past Azul brides - please chime in - did you get a credit back or was it a discount off your room balance?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
