    Now I want one again.  I had decided to just wear my dress for the TTD session.  Argh....

      So It would appear than I am about ready to tell everyone that didn't book sorry but you don't get to go to my fabulous fun wedding that everyone will be talking about for all of time...LOL Sorry, humor is how I deal with the touch of dissapointment I feel.




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

        Thank you for sharing Less is more! What kind of card stock did you print it on?

        The room card was a martha idea as well that i thought would be fun for people.  Plus it will save sometime trying to figure out where everyone is since the resort is booked and some are on the family side and other on the adult.  This is what the card looks like. I formatted it so three will print on one cardstock. I hope this helps. 








        Please Use this card to add everyone’s room number to this list!

                Hello Ladies,


                I was wondering if anyone knows the dimensions of the gazebo sheers for a beach wedding.


                Also, has anyone used an outside florist?

                    Our quote has been the same for 3 adults in a room as 2 adults in a room.  Here is what our guests are quoted on our website for 3 days:


                    Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 1 Adult - $651.92

                    Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 2 Adults - $682.08

                    Luxury Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 1 Adult - $682.08

                    Luxury Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 2 Adults - $532.44

                    Luxury Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 3 Adults - $532.44


                    Yes, this is per person.

                    I just received an email from our DW.com TA stating: "Unfortunately, I just found out today that the hotel is sold out in all categories for the weekend of your wedding."  So ladies on or near that weekend, it's time for Plan B......just a heads up.


                    We have a couple options.....guests can book AS through online sites like travelocity, expedia, etc....or they can go through our TA and select another Karisma resort of their choice. Initially I was upset about this and after rationalizing it, the truth of the matter is we gave people ample time to book their rooms and to have the convenience of an interest free payment plan through DW.com.  At the end of the day, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. I can't agonize over the people that didn't play their part and I truly believe in my heart that all the people that were meant to be there will be, whether they booked last year or tomorrow. :-) I figure life is too short to get spazzed about something I have no control over and as arrogant as it sounds...it's their loss. It will still be the day of FI and my dreams! :-)

                      We are back!  We had a sensational time at this resort and our events.  We recieved many upgrades without even asking. We stayed in a honeymoon suite ocean side and all of our guests were upgraded to the premium section.  I will post a detailed review in the next couple weeks but here is a summary of the events we had:

                      welcome cocktail reception at palapa yoga:  great canapes.  Our friend brought an amazing bose sound system and we danced a lot.  We also had a cigar roller which really impressed a lot of our guests. Very good security - they even tried to stop my sister from coming back from the bathroom b/c they said that there was a private event taking place!  LOL.

                      ceremony at beach zocolo:  wonderful location - still my favourite.  My guests told me that they even stopped people from crossing behind the ceremony.  Very important detail for brides who want a legal marriage at this resort - the ceremony CAN BE PREFORMED IN ENGLISH!  There was no problem with this - its not a requirement to have the ceremony in spanish at all!!!!  The judge was also open to adding anything we wanted before and after his "official speech".  He does have a script he has to say and the wording was fine to me - and again - it was spoken in ENGLISH!  (only emphasizing this b/c I know a lot of people on this forum have changed their decision to have a legal wedding in Mexico because they thought it needed to be spoken in spanish).  I added the hand ceremony and sand ceremony to our wedding and incorporated family.  One thing that took us by surprise is that you have to thumbprint your wedding certificate after you sign it - make sure you bring a wet nap to clean your thumb afterwards!  The judge had a dry napkin but it was hard to get the ink off our thumbs.  I was concerned that I may touch and damage my wedding dress - but in the end this did not happen. 

                      Reception:  @ plaza zavas.  Very nice location.  Food was family style and servers served guests individually.  The assortment was amazing and guests loved the variety.  The lobster tail was a big hit.  Food was plenty and seconds were abundant for those who desired.  Amplifier was rented - great sound.  The only thing that kind of sucked is that when your time expires - they are quick to shut it down and start removing all the linens, decor etc.- but I guess this is to be expected - we just moved the party to the mojito lounge.   We hired the mariachi band - awesome dinner entertainment.  Big hit with the guests and nice touch to the ambiance.  Our cake was a cupcake cake and it was fantastic - better than I expected.  We had a petit cake on top with our personalized cake topper (bobble heads to our likeness).  It was a hit with guests and no where near what I thought it would cost. 

                      Farewell group dinner at spoons:  awesome too!  Menu is std - ceaser salad, bean soup, choice of chicken and steak followed by cheesecake.  Great presentation and flavour.  Guests all complimented the food.  Only thing that happened is that some guests were really hungry when they got there and collected a few plates of snacks for the table from the buffet.  Apparently the servers did not look to pleased about this - but did not stop anyone from doing this.  The section they close off provides a cozy semi private area for entertaining your guests.  I think it makes a nice area for a wedding reception for those of you who are looking to save money by not hosting a private reception.  We were an hour late for our reservation - 7:30 instead of 6:30 - and they were still very accomodating. 

                      My biggest recommendation:  bring your own photographer if you can afford it.  Our photographers were amazing.   They captured ALL of our events and had no strict time limits. Other things they did for us: 

                      1.  Engagement photos at the tulum ruins

                      2.  Trash the dress #1:  used a long white dress from BCBG I purchased and we went to a cenote for some creative photography.  They got tonnes of underwater photos of us and photos that captured above and below the water line.  These are the photos I am looking most forward to seeing.  Even when we felt pressured to get back to the resort because of time constrictions - they kept encouraging more photos! 

                      3.  Trash the dress #2:  used the original wedding outfits - didn't trash them totally.  Lots of cool and amazing shots again.  Over 500 photos taken in this session alone.  LOL.  

                      Our photographer is from the Toronto area - and I would HIGHLY recommend them to any bride!   

                      I can't wait to see all these pics and more! I will post some when I get them. 

                      Only thing I would do differently - stay longer!  Normally we are not fans of staying at an all-inclusive resort for more than a week but we wish we had chosen the 10 day option. Everyday we were busy with one thing or another and when we weren't - we were trying to spend time with all of our guests.  It left no alone time to unwind.  We decided to go away in April now...Even some of our guests requested info on extending their stay - a testiment to how nice it was to stay at this resort. 

                      Good luck to all the ladies that continue to plan their weddings!  I will post better details and photos in a planning thread as I find the time!
