1. The place where you were dancing, is that the plaza? If it is, do you think it is better to have the reception at the place you were at or just on the beach?

2. How much did your cake cost? Did you show them a picture of what you wanted, and how many people did it feed?

3. How much is it to have a cocktail reception, and how is it different than just having your guests get drinks from the bars around?
Hey Meghan~

Yes, that's the new plaza. In the slideshow, there is a pic of the whole plaza not decorated. It's a lot bigger than you would think! I think it's the perfect place for a reception! The beach gets very windy.....honestly, it just feels more like a reception at the plaza rather than on the beach.

I can't recall what we paid for the cake. It's in the amenities pkg price for 20-30 people....I just asked for a 3 tier rather than the 2 tier. It was still the same price. I asked for a square cake, but that's what I got! lol It was plenty big.....we had a total of 30 guests and there was a lot of cake left-over.

The cocktail reception is based on how many appetizers you choose. We picked 8 different one's plus the donkey bar. The donkey was a huge hit with all the guests! We had our own private servers and our own private bar. It was set up where we were on the beach and the resort had our area blocked off from other guests. At that time of day, there isn't a bar on the beach, so our guests would have had to walk up to Zocolo to get a drink....

Let me know if you have any other questions!
Thanks,
Tracy

Thanks so much Trayce. So, with the cocktail reception, do you just pay for the appetizers and are drinks included? That seems interesting that they didn't charge you any extra to have a 3 tiered cake than a 2 tiered, because on the spread sheet, a 3 tier is more. Do you know why they didn't charge you extra?

Natalie Ann! Your pics are beautiful. We were in communication back in the Winter when we were planning on Azul Fives and I was needing wedding invites. I decided to have my wedding in the states but am so glad that your wedding turned out to be stunning. Congrats on your marriage!

Hello Everyone-

Although I have not received all of my photos, my amazing photographers Nels and Anna Akerlund sent over a slide show to our first song. Its awesome and I love every picture. My photographers are a husband, wife team who were such a pleasure to have along with us on our weddingmoon. I would highly recommend them to anyone. It was the best decision we made and are so happy with our choice. You can also see some pics of our ceremony set up on the beach at the sensatori and our reception at the new plaza. We were the first to have our reception there:) Some of our TTD photos are included as well. i just want to warn you there is a semi nudi pic but all of our parts are covered. There is a nude resort down the beach and all the girls had a day of pictures and one we were pretending to be on the nude resort. Hope no one is offended. I think they are cute and funny. Enjoy.

How did you get the photographers on the resort? I thought they stopped doing that or there was a whole headache of a process and lots of money involved?

Your pictures are gorgeous, I hope my wedding is just as beautiful!!

Congrats!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
