Wow! Morning catchup. Nicole, thanks for the info on the vball court (and pic). I know it was a strange question haha.

 

Welcome all the newbies! (that sounds funny to me to be saying that b/c I still am such a newbie)

 

Meredith, I loved your website. Very classy design. As for the centerpieces, I couldn't view them b/c I don't have enough credits or whatnot to download. But if it was me I would probably also use a combination of both (if you have 2 designs). Provided you have enough tables etc.

 

Hope you're all having a great day!

It definitely can be expensive, very easily. It was easy for me that's for sure! It also can be done very cheap if you aren't very picky and don't insist and certain aspects being a part of your day. There are extremely economical options for sure!

I know this isn't what you want to hear but read through this thread. It's what I was told when I first joined and I did it, it's truly the MOST helpful experience because you get to see what we run into, planning all the way through to our actually weddings, reviews and photos and answered questions. This thread is priceless if you're considering AS for your wedding.

So, for those of you who looked at them, which one do you like better the bronze or the white? I may use both, but if more people like the white I may just incorporate more of them.
What are your colors?

WOW! I'm impressed, with that many people you did the wedding for a great price cheer2.gif

Welcome!! Like the other ladies said, it would help you to read through the thread, but it's LONG. I can email you the info sent to me by the resort about add-ons if you want!

I vote BOTH! I think a combination of the two will look great

Second, Welcome Newbies!!! I hate to say it as well but I went back and read thru the entire thread and I am glad I did. I did it over about a week and then once your caught up it's easy to follow along.

Ladies who posted picture links. Love them all and it makes me excited to get married!!!

Speaking of reading all the threads...I may have to go back and re-read!!! The whole time I was reading, I've been thinking of Azul Beach. Now, it's looking more and more like AB is out of the running sad.gif I may have to move to AS...which would NOT be a bad thing at all, but I"ll have to re-think all my options!

 

Just heard from my TA. He confirmed that all the rooms are taken, and we've only got 10 reserved. I'm thinking we'll have more like 15 needed, so...chances are I'll have to switch resorts (especially because of the construction).

 

So I may switch to being an Azul Sensatori bride!! I'll hopefully have an answer by next week.

Oh no, Celina, I'm so sorry to hear that! I know how much you love AB. Can you keep your 10 rooms and have everyone else stay at AS? They're so close to each other, and it seems like you should have your wedding where you want it and not have to move it because people haven't booked. Now the construction is whole different reason for moving. What about having the remaining people pool money to stay at the Villa Carola next door? I just hate to see you give up the intimate feel you were going for that AB offers.

Thank you Wendy!! Honestly...NOBODY has booked yet, other than my immediate family (four rooms). FI's parents haven't even booked yet. Somehow, my TA reserved 10 rooms (not sure how, since we only have deposits for 5 rooms!) but I really want as many people to stay with us as possible. The bigger concern for me is the construction. I just really don't want to be walking under ladders and hearing band saws buzzing away when I'm trying to get my beauty sleep (aka...sleep off my hangover hehe) so that may be the dealbreaker for me.

No matter what, I know it's going to be a fantastic trip, so I'm not getting down about this. AB is absolutely beautiful and sounds like a wonderful place...but if it's not meant to be, something else is!

Meridith....I couldn't view your centerpeices because I cannot open your attachment (probably too few points on my end) but just know that if you've got all these otehr ladies on here to thumbs up them, you are probably golden! ;-)

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
