    Hello, i am a newbie here. We finally picked a resort and I am looking forward to Azul Sensatori next March 2012. I have not started the fun wedding planning yet but am getting obsessed with reading reviews and forums :) I think planning a destination wedding will be so much more fun. I see my friends planning their wedding at home and it's just not the same. Just reserved our date-March 10th 2012!!!!! yay!!!  :) I have a questions for you all: are save the dates necessary? can I just do the invitations 10mnths in advance? Im not sure what is proper ettiquette is.

      Welcome! I didn't do Save the Dates and sent out my formal invitations in Aug 2010 for a May 2011 wedding and it was good I did. Most of my guests booked by November and the resort sold out in Feb so It was good times!

        Welcome!  I pretty much did the same as these ladies...  Sent passport invitations in July (for a May wedding) and most people booked by November.  We orinally planned on these being Save-the-dates, but we ended up putting SO much info on them that people treated them as full invitations.  Thank goodness cause I ran out of money (and time) to make more formal invitations later!

         

        You'll notice the fun thing about a destination wedding is there are no rules!  You can do whatever you want.  In my case (and alot of girls here) none of their guests have ever been to a destination wedding, so they have no clue what to expect.  So if you leave out things at last minute...they'll never know...haha!

          Hi Melfaybik

           

          I ordered the vase bouquest through Lomas. If you go to their wedding webite go to Bouquet then go to Decor and Setup. The item is HC08 and they were $60 a piece. I ordered 2

           

          As for the chair covers and sashes those were through Lomas and they were $9 per chair for the sash and cover

           

          The white sheers were included in the package I got but the 1 pink sheer was $150 and that was through Lomas

           

           

          As for people wanting to do snokeling or catamaran. I would advise to do the catamaran. We did a snorkling trip through Lomas and when we got out to the water is was SO CHOPPY that half the group either couldn't do it or swam back because it was too bad. We spent most the time tanning and drinking on the catamaran. I was bummed because I wanted to snorkle =(

           

          Also, anyone wanting to bring back their BOUQUET to the USA - I brought mine back and customs didn't take it away from me. We took it on our carry on. I immediatly froze it when I got home to preserve it till I can decide what to do with it.

            Chicaloco, so you married at the resort?  Congratulations!  Are you going to post a review by chance?  Do you have any advice for us future brides?  Your ceremony site was beautiful.  I love that vibrant pink sheer!

                Hey girls,

                 

                So, for those of you who have done or are doing the BD shoot, have any ideas for a cute little saying about letting go of the traditional black book and instead getting the new "married" version.  I'm trying to think of a cute saying.

                    Got the quote today...$50 per strand!  Definitely bringing my own!  For those of you planning (or already did) bring lights...how many strands?

                     

                    Then unfortunately I'll have to rent tiki torches (though $8 is much more reasonable!)...how many of those do you recommend?



                    El Dorado Maroma is where we are going.....i have been there before and it is SUPER quiet and TOTALLY relaxing!!  only about 50 rooms and most people there are honeymooners!!  I have traveled to about 20 resorts in mexico and it is my favorite resort of all!!

                    We were going to book El Dorado Casitas...but wanted to check with you ladies first in case you knew of anything better.

                    Ladies, my FI found strands of Christmas Lights online for like $7 a strand. DO NOT pay the high resort prices!

                     

                    I leave 3 weeks from today!

                     

                    We paid our final payment, but now I feel like I want to include more things... I guess I can do it when I get there?

                     

                    Thanks for the reminder about the CASH only for the set up fee, I wasn't planning to bring much with me, but now I will.

                     

                    I'm still in search of laterns (any ideas where to look?)



                    paradise catamarans!!  super easy to work with and #1 reviews on tripadvisor!!  people on BDWF speak highly of them too!!
