Ericka- would you mind if I forwarded your post to Faith? That may be the best way to let them know that it's a really big concern of all of the brides on the forum and where you guys are coming from!

 

I've also requesterd on behalf of my brides the ability to prebook the locations (instead of so close in to the wedding!)

 

I'll also find out exactly what the differences are between Beach waiters and beach butlers- if it's just in the name or if it's actually in duties performed!

 

Please don't think that you can't vent on this forum- I was just trying to explain some of the issues and let you know that they are not just issues that Lomas/ Karisma have but they are pretty standard industry wide, albiet to varying degrees!

 

So for this weeks questions I have:

 

Time line of when to expect to finalize details?

 

How early can locations for receptions be reserved?

 

Differences between Beach waiters and beach butlers?

 

How soon to expect Beach waiters and beach butlers at Azul Sensatori?

 

Who exactly works in Miami and works on Azul Sensatori weddings?

 

Is there any plans in place to hire additional Miami based WC's For the Azul brands?

 

Can Canadian brides book through a U.S. based TA and still get the free wedding package?

 

With the prices going up for 2009 weddings- those that secured their wedding dates and were quoted on items in 2008 will pay the 2008 prices- is this correct?

 

 

Anything else that you guys would like added?

That's fine TA Jennifer, if you forward my post or just of our concerns. Maybe they just don't realize the whole picture :)

 

I'm not sure how to upload pictures either. You can copy and past a link if your gown is online.

Does anyone know what the restrictions are to how many main courses we can offer our guests to choose from? I was thinking 3 - one vegetarian, one chicken, and one seafood. As long as we get our order in ahead of time do you know if we're able to split it up like that? Thanks!

 

Here's a link to my dress...it's in the metal tafetta...

I too was concerned and confused about Canadians and the "free wedding package" So I emailed the resort. What I found out is that Canadians can qualify for the free wedding package as long as they are not using Signature Vacations.

 

I am not really sure how Canadian Tour Companies work (maybe TA Jennifer can help us out with this one) but my understanding is that Signature is able to offer the best rates, by how much I do not know. In fact, I am anxious to know what rates other Canadian Tour Companies can offer because I too wanted to book the Honeymoon suite and free wedding.

We have a small group of 12 going down so depending on how much more the rate is my Fiance and I could pay the difference for each of our guests and possibly still save money. Unfortunately, we have already booked and paid so there is not much we can do about it now, but it is still frustrating. If I had known this information before I would have researched it further. PM me if you want to compare rates and info.

 

Love your Dress by the way. Very unique!

Jennifer, I may be to late, but I just wanted to add that when I requested information from Karisma's reservation desk directly, I received from them a brochure titled "Gourmet Inclusive Collection by Karisma" dated Spring 2008. Just like Ericka pointed out-on Page 33 of this brochure there is a section that runs down what is "included in your package" and it has "Beach Waiter Service-serving gourmet bites and refreshing drinks" and "Beach Butler service- gourmet bites, towels, sun tan lotion, reading material" for Azul Sensatori. The interesting part is only Azul Fives has an (*) next to it and it says "package inclusions may change without previous notice." I take that to mean that because there is no (*) by Azul Sensatori the packages for that resort won't change. There are also several references to beach butlers being part of Azul Sensatori's package throughout the 38 page brochure.

I did a sight tour in june so the hotel is not finished in the photo but the gazebo is.

I have tried to upload the file three times and no luck.

Does anyone know if there is a trick to it?

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
