    Hi,

    Thanks for the question and I actually really like the photographers at the Azul Sensatori itself.

    However if you want to go outside the resort for photograhers I have had several of my couples book through Elizabeth Medina as well as Del Sol- both are highly recommended and very personal. They also provide assistants which are very good as well and cost a little less if budget is a big factor in your wedding plans.

    Hope this helps. Liz Moore

      Hi

      That's great that your travel agent did this for you. It means she/he is a GI consultant with Karisma which I am as well. It gives us the opportunity to provide allot of additional services such as what you have received. Karisma resorts are exceptional in the offers they provide us for our clients that way. I love being able to upgrade my clients, provide candlelight dinners etc - it's a great way of saying thanks and does make your experience all the more memorable- which is what it's supposed to be. Congrats on your wedding and you've chosen a wonderful resort to get married at!

        I'm still debating DJ stuff.  I would do the IPOD myself but FI feels that a DJ might be better (music is important for him).  We also have a friend who may be coming who's a DJ but I don't think I really want to ask him to work at our wedding....

         

        Looking for opinions.

        We have reserved Dj Mannia.  That was one of my FI's To-Do's and he was able to negotiate his rate down after discussing the vendor fee. If you want specifics, PM me.

        We hired Elizabeth Medina....she is pretty pricey and beyond alot of couple's budgets but I fell in love with her work, so it was the natural choice. She has a thread on this forum that showcases her work.

        Her name is Gayle Hirsch with Destination Weddings. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a TA!

        Sounds like you really lucked up with DW.com.  Go you!!! I wish that my DW.com TA experience was only this glowing. That is wonderful news....

        Del Sol is banned from Karisma resorts and have been for some time.  Del Sol will not even entertain booking a wedding at a Karisma resort.

          No more than one minute!  I actually started my song and then had the hostesses lay rose petals down the aisle and I waited for a few seconds before I started walking and I still didn't get halfway through the song and it was 3 minutes and 15 seconds long.  The WC faded the music out. You can ask them to play the entire song which I did and they said ok but I was running over 30 minutes late and the minister and the videographer had another wedding to do so they kinda rushed me.

            Both DJs were booked our weekend so we're doing the iPod thing. I hear there's someone there from the resort that can control it for you. We're going to fool proof it so that hopefully, its easy to understand. We're doing a playlist for dinner (instrumentals), a playlist for dancing and putting our songs (i.e. 1st dance, etc) in their own list so hopefully it will go ok. I have to admit I'm having nightmares about this not going well but I just can't justify paying $1400 for a DJ from the resort and they won't even tell you who they use so you can get reviews ahead of time.
              


            I actually had two playlists for the reception.  I had one titled reception playlist 1 which was the music that we played during dinner.  The other one was reception playlist 2 which had our first dance as the first song and we just let it play from there.  We really had no problem at all.  I just told the WC to play the 1st one when we sat down and when we got up to do the 1st dance I told him to switch to the 2nd playlist.  Relax!  I promise you won't have a problem!!!!

              The walkway is definitely shorter in person than it appears in pictures.  I counted about 19 steps in the sand then 13 steps on the plank when I was practicing during my last trip :)

               

              Danielle - Was this one minute starting from the top or bottom of the ramp?

                Has anyone considered skipping the cake?  I can't decide if I really want/need a cake. 

                 

                Do any of our married girls have pics of your cake? 

                 

                Oh, and my bridesmaid realized that it wasn't fair to me to skip my wedding based on her feelings for another guest, so it's all good now! :o)

                  What is the cost for the outside vendor fees?

                    I apologize for being so clueless, but does any one have advice about who to contact about finding out if certain dates are available for a wedding next year? Do I need to go through a GI consultant? We're also planning to do a site in November so I'd like to set that up with someone. The website didn't list an email...thank you!

                      My understanding is $500, however it is waived if they stay at least 3 nights at the resort.
