Can someone tell me the difference b/w the AZUL hotels and the best one for weddings?
Thanks

All I can say is that the Sensatori is a bigger reosrt and the Azul Beach is smaller with 98 rooms and kids are allowed. I wanted more intimacy and only one wedding a day so I chose the Azul Beach. If you want more options, the Sensatori is a better pick. I think Beach has 3 restaurants.

I haven't been to any of them but found Tripadvisor.com VERY helpful. Just dont get caught up on the bad reviews.

Hi All - I'm back from the wedding and honeymoon in Mexico! So sad to be back, I'm jealous of all of you who are on your way! I posted my LONG review and a few pics. Once I have all of my pics I'll share the link as well. Feel free to ask any questions, I know how stressful the planning part can be! All I can say is don't worry - everything will be wonderful! Thank you all SO much for your help thru the planning and chaos, I don't think I would have made it without this forum!!!

Grace replaced her and is now my new coordinator, I'm so happy to be rid of Jo'Zeen and anyone else that had her as well I'm sure :)

I am planning on a couple of excursions with our guests. One to Playa del Carmen for some shopping - I have been there before and I liked it better than the cancun markets. Another one to Xcaret -an ecological water park Xcaret - Cancun most amazing eco park. I have never been to this park, but it sounds really neat, a dolphin swim, shark swim, cave rivers you can swim etc.
I have been to the other ecological water park Xel-Ha XelHa | Natural Wonder - Home and it was great, they had a dolphin swim, great snorkeling and some nice trails for a little hike.
We also are going to do a day trip to Chitzen Itza, but it does take the WHOLE day. The ruins of Tulum are just south of Azul Sensatori so are nice for a shorter excursion, and they are on a cliff overlooking the water -really stunning.

Hope some of those ideas help! Happy planning!

What's everyone doing about site selections?

 

We're going to be around 75 people and are torn on what locations to choose for our cocktail party and our reception. I'm not crazy about having anything on the beach (sand in shoes, wind), but all the other sites look cramped. We currently have Zocolla Al Fresco reserved for the cocktail party and the Zavas Plaza for the reception, but I'm wondering if there are any better options. What are you all doing?

 

Thanks!

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
