Wow, you seem to be handling it all very, very well! I'm impressed b/c you really seem to have it together. I'm thrilled to hear that the resort is working with you and easing your anxiety. This can't be the first time this has happened in their business, LOL. You definitely need to keep us posted on how this all plays out. BTW, the Azul properties are known for their amazing baby services. They provide all kinds of things like changing tables, cribs (well, your little guy/gal may be too young for a crib, but it wouldn't surprise me if they have bassinets).

YAY!!!!smile02.gif
Thanks so much Wendy!!!

I can't believe you're 5 days away! I'm so excited for you! I wish you all the best. All the pieces will fall together nicely with all of your planning. My fingers are crossed for nice weather! When do you actually leave?

Hi everyone! I'm sure it is already mentioned on here but I couldn't find it-can you only have max 50 guests for the wedding at the Azul resorts? I am loving the looks of either Azul Beach hotel or Sensatori. However, I am planning on inviting 80 guests (but not sure how many can go).

The max at AB is 50 guests b/c the resort only has 98 rooms. Sensatori may accommodate more since it's a much larger resort. There aren't too many DWs with over 50 guests. You may invite 80 but only 30-40 will actually go.

Thanks for the info! I'll email Sensatori to ask them. Would you book a resort hoping that not all guests go?? That makes me nervous but I really like a smaller resort!

Boy, I don't know that's a tough one! No, I probably wouldn't on the slim chance most people ended up going. You take a chance either way I guess.

All you other AS ladies, what are your thoughts? How many did you invite and how many are actually going?

We're expecting! Unsure of the date still... but it looks like October. Whoops!

I hadn't been feeling like myself, I was tired, my chest was super sore, I was nauseated each morning after I ate breakfast and something just told me the check... and now we have a little whoops! We're happy and we are terrified. We planned on trying right after our wedding... I guess we're just 7 months early. They think I might already by at least 6 weeks already. We haven't told anyone expect our parents and MOH, oh and our WC. We're just waiting for the results of all my blood work, to confirm the date and make sure the babies healthy but obviously changes our plans drastically.

Our WC told us to keep our November date because we have such a good price, but if we have to move it, there's no way we'll get that price after November at the AS. I just don't know if I would want to take a baby that young to Mexico. She then suggested her favorite result in Cuba for January, which is an option. If we have to move it, it will be to move it back, not up. January/ February seems more ideal. But we don't want to put it off longer than that. It's so crazy that something you are looking so forward to can be changed instantly like this. Don't get me wrong, we're super happy, we just weren't expecting this to happen.. and when I mean little whoops... I mean little whoops.

The funny thing is, I've been working out like crazy, eating healthy, losing weight, inches... just let this be a lesson to everyone... LOL
Congrats Crista!! You are so blessed. Good story for the baby when they grew up.

It was a strange moment to think that all this hard work is finally being set in motion.

We leave in 1.5 days. YAY!!!!!!!

On another note, I got my nails done this morning and it's the first time I've ever had acrylic nails. Man, is it hard to type!!! It's taking me forever b/c I keep screwing up, LOL!
I have been MIS lately but wanted to write to you before you left. Have an awesome time. My friend went to a DW at AB and loved it. Can't wait to see your pictures. Does AB have yoga on the beach. My FI and I are going to take it when we get down.

Hi.. Can anyone tell me if you guys are getting a honeymoon suite, and if you think it is necessary versus standard suites. For all the brides that have been there, are the standard or premium suites large enough for a bride and her party of 4 to get dressed together? Thanks for your help.

We were thinking some in the Quarter/Jackson square, some on the street car to Uptown/Garden District, and then some at the Columns hotel, etc down there.

I have lived here all my life. You are coming at one of the best times of the year. You'll definitely have lots of fun. And you definitely are going to the right area. The French Quarter is definitely the best area to get really interesting pics. You could possibly get pics riding in the one of the horse and carriages there. Make sure you go to Woldenburg Park. It's right on the Mississippi River and the well known boats (The Natchez and The Creole Queen) dock there. Maybe you can get them in the background of some of your pics. Definitely look @ Studio Tran's website. They are one of the most sought after photography businesses here (I wish I could afford to bring them with me to Mexico). But look at their engagement photos and sometimes they'll put locations at the top of the album. City Park, Lafreniere Park, all along St. Charles Ave (gotta get the streetcar in some pics). Believe it or not, if you go to Audubon Zoo, there are a lot of photo ops there too.

Where are you staying? How much time will the photographer allow for pics?

There is a lot of money involved and a lot of emotions and OPINIONS. That has been the hardest thing for me to handle: not taking these opinions personally!

And don't worry, you have plenty of time! Just start making a short list of things to do and don't let yourself get too overwhelmed with the big picture. For now, you have the resort booked! That is the most important...have you found a TA yet? Photographer is a good next step...and you can even start dress shopping!!! That's the best part! Let us know if we can do anything for you! grouphug.gif

Thanks! It's really good to hear that I'm actually NOT losing my mind.

Yeah, my TA is actually the one that suggested AS. She's great! She's the least of my worries. If anyone doesn't have a TA I highly recommend her. She got us fabulous rates.

I am actually going dress shopping in Atlanta this weekend. They're having a trunk sale for my #1 ranked dress. So keep your fingers crossed on that one!

I'm sure I'll need LOTS of assistance. I tried to go back and read all 600 pages of this thread, but it's just not happening. So I apologize in advance if I ask a repeat question.

Regarding the people that want to help you... they need to just get excited again and feel like their needed... I know, I know but it's true. If you yourself and muster up a little excitement go grab coffee with one or a few of them and say, "Hey I'm really getting into planning now and need (fill in the blank) done and thought you'd be PERFECT doing this since you're so creative or good at (fill in the blank). This helps, you need to get people involved or else they feel like they are forcing you.

Also, one lesson I learned... don't wait for people to tell you anything because they won't. Just ask, up front and blatantly. Tell your grandmother, are you planning to come to the wedding? I need to know by (fill in the date) so I can plan for it financially, other than that I will consider you not coming.

I'm sorry if this comes across rude, it's just how it has to be, direct with no fluff and you'll get answers, I hope, haha!

Also, just do one thing at a time... chose a photographer and do nothing else until that's done, then move on to the next item. Keep a list and check stuff off, you'll be moving in no time! I do a to do list for the thread every two weeks, feel free to add some stuff to do and you focus on those items for 2 weeks, it's easier to focus on a small list instead of thinking about your whole wedding all at once.

Vent away my dear, this is why we're all here, we all understand exactly what you're going through and have been there.

Good luck!

You know what KittenHeart? I'm going to take your advice. What you said wasn't rude...it's real! No need for me to sit around waiting on them. I'm going to try to stick to a list (Lord knows my mind wanders way too much). I have personally diagnosed myself with ADD this late in life. But I will definitely try the to do list. When are you guys updating it for the next two weeks?

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa. Favorite people at the resort were Paola (wedding planner), Vividiana (check in), Veronica and Marisol (spa). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RaFb19Pbn8tDvNY3_GSoZ8DX0plYaT_F

       
    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
