Dress #2!  I like the Mori Lee dress better than the David's one b/c it's flowier and is just really cute.  I like the eggplant over the Aubergine b/c I think it'll pop more in a tropical setting.  What are your other colors?  Sorry if you've already been over this on here...I can't keep everyone's colors straight!

 

 

I agree.  Love the Mori Lee dress.  I too like both colours but think the dark purple would look amazing in Mexico

ladies...

 

FH is having a meltdown and we havent even gone down there yet to see the place

(for those that havent seen my prev posts...we are going to see AS on labor day weekend, staying at EDR but prob going with AS for wedding)

 

i have been researching like crazy and looking at all your posts etc

and researching photographers

 

FH thought wed be able to pull this off for 10k

 

I thought about 20k

 

FH doesnt think its worth 20k

 

 

and I dont think we can do it for 10k!

 

we are thinking 35-50 ppl

we will have to pay for us and for my grandparents room

 

plus 50 pp for the cocktail hour and reception we want from the banquet menu on the site

 

plus photo, video, flowers, gown

 

all the photogs ive looked at are around 5k!!!! thats almost the same price as a NY photographer, actually its MORE!

 

do you girls mind sharing any insight?

it would also be superrrrr helpful if you wouldnt mind sharing what you spent, you can send me a private message if you want

 

or give me a breakdown of costs

 

does AS include flowers in any of the pkgs?

 

thanks so so so so so much!

 

im so worried we will be back to square one and stuck paying 40k for a NY wedding :-(

I wasn't aware that was how it was going to work. We qualify but we booked the free foom for our photog. I was told we were paid in full from the TA so I'm assuming she deals with the refund with the resort. Maybe I need to double check this.

You're lucky. I haven't served yet, but I'm sure just because I'm typing it now I'll be called soon smile35.gif

I like the Mori Lee the best and of course you know I'm going to choose the dark purple. Keep in mind it taked them like 10 weeks to come in. I know you have time but just wanted to make sure I told you that.

Toronto bride: travelling Jan 22/11 for a week with our wedding day on the 26th at the Azul Sensatori.  Invites are out; responses due by Aug 31; around 30 or more confirmed at this pt.  Booked through "The wedding holiday" in Mississauga.  Bringing my own photographer from Toronto - willing to share with another Toronto area bride if interested and your wedding date isn't the same day!  At some point I guess I will worry about the wedding pkg deets we upgraded to - unless there are some other views?! 

welcome4.gif Nice to meet you. I agree with Chong, start reading from page 400 or 450 and that info should be the most current stuff. I am also a big procrastinator so join the club!!

 I was married at Azul Sensatori in April!  Whilst I didn't contribute much to this forum, I got lots of tips and ideas from it and was on it almost daily!

Thought it was only fair for me to share just a few of my pics.

You will have a fabulous time!

 

The only thing that I would complain about is the hair salon!

I paid for a hair trial and was very happy with my hair and the girl who did it, however, on the day of the wedding, that girl was nowhere to be seen!! 

Also the co-ordinator had booked my hair appointment for 1.30pm and I was getting married at 4pm.  At 2.30, I was still waiting to get my hair done!  they eventually got another girl to start curling my hair, but then, when the trainee girl (who couldn't even curl hair properly) had finished with another client, she was brought over to finish my hair!  I was not happy.  She did not speak any english and I could not let her know what I wanted.  I wanted a messy side bun, but all she did was sweep my hair to the side and pin it.  I ended up bursting into tears because all I could think was that I would have awful hair on my wedding day!  They ended up having to phone for another stylist from another resort just up the road and I felt crap on my wedding day when I should've been excited!

I was eventually happy with the hairdo, however, did not get out of the salon until 3.15pm!  Ended up having to run back to my room and slap on my make up and throw on my dress in a last minute rush!  Was definitely not how I imagined the getting ready process on my wedding day!  I thought I would be sipping champagne and taking it easy.

I would just advise you all to make sure that if you are having a trial, make sure it will be the same girl doing your hair on the day, or there is no point!  I would also advise you to get an early hair appointment, as they did tend to run over if there are a few of you getting your hair done!

Awe, thank you so much for thinking of us!  I think the lady got enough backlash from the cheerleading community that she at least stopped posting ignorant things on facebook.  But the girls start back to school on Monday so I'm hoping all goes well.  The school was notified and they are going to pull the girls aside and have a talk with them.  Hopefully this won't reignite the insanity.

Thank you everyone for your BM dress opinions....it has been decided...eggplant Mori Lee...I do like the Aubergine color...but I think it is almost too silvery purple..and since purple is my only real color..I think it will work better....

I can totally picture the beach with purple sheers on the gazebo and bows on the chair and those dresses...

I can't believe I actuually made a decision.

 

Funny think is...that purple color is what I originally wanted the 1st time I got married...but I wound up finding these awesome black dresses with fealthers on the hem (sounds awful...but they were really pretty) so..it all changed....

This time....I get to do it right :)

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
