    Hello All Past and Future Brides!

     

    I am having a very difficult time deciding between a Legal and Symbolic wedding because I am concerned about the Judge or Minister not being able to speak very good English.  I have seen a lot of wedding videos (some at Azul) where the judge/minister speaks very bad English and you cannot understand what he/she is saying throughout the entire ceremony.  We are having our ceremony videotaped professionally and it would be so much better if we could understand what is being said at the ceremony.  I really want to do the legal ceremony but now I am leaning more towards the Symbolic ceremony and getting married in US before or after the wedding. 

     

    Do you know if the Ministers for the Symbolic Wedding speak better English than the Judges for the Legal Wedding?

     

    Is anyone having a friend or family member performing the ceremony instead of hiring a Minister?

     

    I was wondering what other brides are doing? 

     

    Looking forward to hearing from everyone and thank you!! J

     

    Melissa

      Have any of you seen the uncoverd chairs with satin bows?  I have my heart set on satin bows with covered chairs, but just found out its $5/chair just for the cover!  I dont think satin will hang right on their uncovered chair, but I am hoping someone has a picture and can prove me wrong!

       

      Less is more...I know you are doing satin bows for the reception...are you doing with or without covers?

        Is there any way you could email me the template you used?  For some reason I can't open attachments on here. 


        Hi Miriam!

        Welcome back!  Did you get delayed by the snowstorm on Wednesday????  Great pics!  Can't wait to see ours!

All of our guests had an amazing time, and the wedding coordinators on site are super. Don't stress too much, they will make everything perfect! I will be trying to get my review and planning journal done in the next week.

        Hi,

         

        Where in the reception location did you have the tall glass vases and hanging corsages transferred to?  Thats a great idea!

         

        Thanks!

         Free wedding pkg worked best for us.  I created a spreadsheet and compared what was offered in each one compared to what I would still have to add.  In the end - the free wedding suited us much better and saved us money.

        Question for the recent brides-- how did you transport your wedding dress? And did you steam it onsite? Starting to worry about how well my dress will hold up during the travel...



         

         I used powerpoint for our brochure:

          We had the symbolic and our minister spoke really great english. She did a wonderful ceremony.

          I know nv+gm  had the legal ceremony, and they asked for an english speaking judge and got one.

          We had 2 cocktail parties. Our guests arrived on Saturday, so we had a welcome party on Sunday. It was held at the Zavas Terrace (I posted a picture a few pages back). And the wedding was Monday, and directly after the ceremony we had a cocktail party on the beach right beside the wedding gazebo. There is a picture posted in my hotel review.

            I am doing the satin sashes for the reception.  I was told that the chairs are covered at the privite reception so thats why the satin sounded perfect. I am doing the yellow organza sashes at wedding ceremony to coordinate with the yellow sheers.  I think you will be okay Jaime.  I orginally wanted the satin at the ceremony but i found it difficult to match the tiffany blue sashes with the sheers ( to many shades of blues would through me off).  SO I took the safe way out lol! I do believe another bride did the satin and they looked beautiful.  Just make sure they tie the knots tight so they don't slip! $5/chair cover was away to steep of me. Plus my mom would ruin it for me if they had any wrinkles......don't ask.  Growing up we ironed our bed sheets....why?.......She always said it would make us sleep better. LOL

              Jessie:

              Thank you so much!!!  I think you are right, I am going to have to compare the actual prices and what I was planning on adding and seeing if it makes sense.  I have a gut feeling I will be going with the free package as most of the others have mentioned.

              I am not sure about photographers yet!!??  I am still working on that one!  :)

              Wondering what other brides are going with......

               

              :)

              **sometimes I avoid coming to this site because I feel so unorganized...you all sound like you know EXACTLY what you want and I am so not there!!!!!!! 

              I switched to the sweet free package because I compared the packages, and the other packages really offered nothing that the free package offered that I even cared about, except for a bride's bouquet, which certainly isn't going to cost $2500 or more.  What I did is print out a list of all the packages and compared them side by side.  Then I looked at what was offered in the the more expensive package(s) that wasn't offered in the free package, and then figured out if it was worth the extra money.  I figured I was WAY better off starting at zero and building from there than paying a few thousand dollars for basically nothing (and my uncle is a wedding photog, so I don't need that).  The things that are available on the Gold package that are not available on the free package are:  spa hairstyle for bride and haircut for groom, blood test, photographer, logo beach bag, romantic sunset cruise for bride and groom.  If you want all of those things and they are worth $3,500 for you, then go for it.  I think the big thing is the photographer.  Figure out what you want to do for photography and I think you'll have your answer.

               

              You can kind of keep looking at it as you are planning and change your package at anytime if it seems like there is one that might fit you better.  Good luck!

               

              And keep checking out this site.....it will definitely help you figure out what you want/need and what your options are at the resort.  Everybody on here is at various stages of planning, so no need to feel intimidated!!

                  THANKS BIGBOP!!!!

                  I do feel much better after the really nice messages of how late others are on things
                   ( I guess misery really does love company!)   Appreciated....many, MANY more questions to follow...I am going to look up the DJ you are using....any particular reasons why you chose him over some of the others the ladies are going with?

                  Also, I forgot to mention to you that there is no reason for you to feel unorganized. We are all at different planning stages and we are all here to help each other. I too am REALLY undecided on alot of things re: our wedding, but I find that by coming here and reading up, I'm able to narrow down my desires versus things that don't catch my eye. These ladies are great, so lean on us if you need help! If it makes you feel better, I am 3 months away for our big date and haven't sent out invites yet. ;-)  WELCOME!
