Hi Ladies....

 

Just checking in with you to let you know that I am still here. :-) I'm just trying to catch up on my reading of the thread so that I don't ask any questions or obsess over things that have already been addressed. :-) Right now I am on page 221 but I feel like at this rate it will take me forever.

 

Right now I am starting to feel anxious about our decision. We have less than 12 months and I don't know if I made the right choice based upon my readings thus far. When we first started this search for our wedding location, a nice beach was a high priority. Right now, I am reading comments that the beach is not blue and is very rocky. Is this true? Also is there a time of year that the beach is really blue versus brown? I'm starting to feel really naive! :-/

It's blue, don't you worry! The water will turn brown temporarily after storms because of all the seaweed that comes ashore.

My due date came and went and I had to ask about making the final payment. They didn't come to me. But then because of the big fiasco with the reception location, along with working out some other details, we didn't end up paying until about 10 days prior. They were very easy going about it.

I was trying to multi-quote but it didn't work but anyway I was told that the payment is due 45 days before, which for me will be June 16th. I sure hope that day comes and goes without them asking me because due to some screw up with the IRS I haven't gotten my tax return yet and I just found out that I probably won't get it until the first week in July. We were planning to use the tax return to pay off the wedding. We can rob Peter to pay Paul to pay the wedding off but who wants to do thathuh.gif It'll be just my luck that the resort will be looking for my payment on June 16th exactly!

Most of our AB brides on here don't have weddings until 2011, but Sara's (dirtymartini) is in November this year.
Oh no!! That stinks! Sorry, I missed what you said about the spa - are they adding one?

Funny side-story, I was at my Doctor's this morning and the receptionist was talking about her son getting married in Mexico. I said "Oh, I'm getting married in Mexico in November!" Turns out, he's getting married at AS 1 week before me. Small world, eh?!

Then I can talk to the WC at Azul Sensatori and see what dates in May of 2011 are open. YIKES! I am an event planner so it's not like I can't get everything I was planning to do over 2 years done in 1 righthuh.gifLOL
Question for you ladies; I have had 2 WC's contact me from AS
Tiffany Borowsky and Cécile Alix. Did anyone have good experiences with one or both?
Thanks ladies! I would be Lost without you guys!
So mixed reviews on Tiffany....Has anyone had Cecile?

What was your location fiasco? Where did you end up having the ceremony - it looks beautiful! Kiara keeps pushing the gazebo, but I thought I heard there is a lifeguard stand right in view... is that right?

Yes, they're renovating a building they already have to put in a spa. But it won't be done until 2011, sorry!
Aw man! That was one of the things I was bummed about...

Long, long story. We had the ceremony in front of the bridge right at the entrance to the beach and the reception was on the Blue Terrace. You can see pictures of my ceremony location if you click on my review under my siggy. We were adamant about not being on the sand, so this was perfect for us!

Yes, unfortunately, there is a lifeguard tower right behind the beach gazebo. Ridiculous placement IMO b/c it will be in all your wedding shots. You can choose any location now and always change it once you get there.

I'll look through my personal pictures and see if I can find you one of the gazebo with the lifeguard tower. Stay tuned...

Thank you so much for the reassurance, Taylorwd! I honestly think this thread is a blessing and a curse. :-) If you start reading from the beginning it is SOOOO negative. And then if you talk to ladies who have recently had ceremonies, all are happy! I think I might just need to stop reading anything prior to page #400. :-) Thank you!
