    Did any of you use destinationweddings.com? Did they include flight in your quote for you?

      I used a travel agent in the family but we are at about $1650 a couple for room only 5 nights. Airfare seems to be even out at about $375 a person depending where your flying from


      Maggie and Jay GOT married on May 15th 2011 at Azul Sensatori. Best International Wedding EVER!

        I'm with DW.com and no, they did not include airfare.  I did some research and it says the best time to purchase international airfare is 4-5 months in advance.  They also mentioned Tuesday afternoon as the best time of the week.

              Hey ladies,

               

              For those of you who are doing a beach "welcome party."  Do you know the location, and how getting drinks for it will work?  I asked the WC and she told me to just give her a time.  So, I was thinking we could do our Spoons dinner reservation and then go hang out on the beach.  Any idea if they set anything up, or do they just run a cord for your Ipod system and direct you to a bar?

                Thanks so much for your help.  I really found it helpful knowing what works and what doesn't. Definately going to go for the beach for everything now. Would you recommend the dancefloor or not bother? Did you have many hotel guests around whilst your ceremony and reception were going on? As I am worried about too many onlookers.

                Thanks again X

                  Thanks Michelle can't believe that your wedding is 2 days before mine. Got loads of questions I need to ask, hope you don't mind. So excited! X

                  Tisha-- I love love love your engagement photos. Were they taken in Maryland? If so, I would love to know more details. I have been wanting to do them, but wasn't sure where to turn.

                   

                  Gemma-- I am getting married 2 days before you, so we will probably see each other there! I may also do just white for the ceremony decor, with a splash of tan and maybe one color. I figure that my MOH and mom will have pretty colors on. I just can't decide. Feel free to PM anytime and we can chat. Nice to know I have someone so close!

                   

                  Question-- has anyone heard of a steel drum band they have at the resort? I was thinking this would be a great option for the welcome cocktail party. Either that, or we can put reggae on our iPod. I want something different than the reception.

                   

                  How about ceremony music? What is everyone doing?

                   

                  Thanks XOXOXO

                    Hey Chong,

                    I hope married life is wonderful for you!

                    We were told we could book the palapa yoga but have our tables around the edges (actually on the beach). do you think this would work? We have 40 guests so 5 tables of 8.

                     

                    Thanks,

                    Lyndsey

                    Hi ladies

                     

                    In need of some real help. Have only just started to make plans for my wedding next April 19th. Have got my dress and wedding rings bought but now starting to think about the details for the resort.

                     

                    Started to think about colours but finding it really difficult. Was thinking of having all white (flowers, chair cover, bows and organza over the wedding area) but not sure. Does anyone have any pictures they could forward to me to help? Any colour would give me an idea.

                     

                    I've started looking at the recpetion areas and was thinking of having it on the beach as we're getting married on the beach. Has any had their wedding and reception on the beach? If so what was the layout like and was it ok to be on the beach or would you recommend another area?

                     

                    I was hoping to get a seperate room for the night before the wedding so we didnt see each other on the morning of the wedding. Has anyone done this and how much did you pay?

                     

                    Ive got a package already paid for with the photographer, but was wondering who you would recommend out of the 2 choices the hotel offers? And how long to have them for? As my package only covers and hour and Im not sure how long the wedding etc will take.

                     

                    I was thinking about getting my hair and make up done at the hotel and was wondering if anyone used their services or did it themselves. Which is better?

                     

                    Sorry for so many questions, didnt realise getting married abroad would need so much organising and decision making. Thought it was meant to be easier. I was sooo wrong!

                     

                    Thank in advance for anyones help

                    We had Family Style reception dinner. I am not sure about BBQ but the Family Style dinner was a lot of food. Nobody finish the platter. I posted a picture of our family style dinner platter somewhere page 1060s. We didn't have cocktail hour and we are glad we didn't. We just opened the bar early for everyone to get their drinks (to make sure they stay around the area). We had more than enough food that I would've been MAD if we had cocktail hour where everyone was full from little finger foods and not able to eat our delicious robster tail, steak, shrimp, chicken, ribs, etc. But it's all up to you what you want to do!!!

I'm confused

                     

                    btw CONGRATS AND GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE UPCOMING NOVEMBER BRIDES!!!! :)



                     

                    I LOVE steel drum - not too Mexican so we decided not to do it. I thought there was a band that plays steel drum - you can check it out on the LOMAS website.

                     

                    Just a note... the site WC asks you for the following music:

                    1) Music for bridesmaids entrance

                    2) Music for bride entrance

                    3) Music for signing the paper

                    4) Music for exit

                     

                    We did not consider music for all these... but luckily we had extra music to play. Make sure to have all 4 music ready to go.

                      Just enjoy your ceremony, onlookers are part of landscape. Definitely a dance floor is a very good idea, dancing on the sand is very tiring, and if the dance floor is with lights, the result is amazing!
