Decor was perfect, ceremony went smooth, but the reception organization could've fallen apart fast if our friend didn't step in and take over.
My number 2 biggest tip is to give them one suitcase with an inventory list with descriptions of exactly how you want everything. I got this original idea from LessIsMore, and built on it by putting absolutely everything in writing in the suitcase...inventory, pictures, sermon, readings, order of events,etc.
Well I better get back to my honeymoon! If anyone is considering the casitas...I highly recommend it!!! It has been fabulous here! It's pretty expensive, but totally worth it! Also, I didn't end up using all of my membership "weeks" for all of my guests, so if any of you need extra discounts for your honeymoon or straggling guests just let me know and I'll see what I can get. PM me though cause I have no idea when I'll get through all the posts!
Congrats Jamie! Glad to hear all went well. Enjoy your honeymoon!
*The Italian restaurant was really good at Casitas....and the cheese fondue was super fun (and super filling)!
Hi my fellow Azul Brides,
Has anyone dealt with the issue of having 3 year olds who are way advanced use the kids club?
I have a niece and nephew coming to AB and I would hate if they couldn't join the kids club play groups becasue they didn't meet the cut off.
Has anyone asked about this or overcome it?
Much obliged to anyone who has insight!
I think they are fairly strict with the ages for joining the actual kids club group (ie. supervised activities). However kids of any age are allowed to use the kids club facilities as long as a parent is with them. We had a 9 month old, who played with the toys, water playground, etc. Hope that helps.

LOL My order is: prelude, processional, bridal march, words of welcome, recitation of vows, exchange of rings, sand ceremony and signing of docs, closing, and recessional. I did not see your wedding date at the bottom of your post, but if it is after my date (05/28/11), I will let you know!
That's pretty much how our ceremony ran. So I think you should be good (we didn't do the sand ceremony, and we inserted our own vows) Our vows were directly before the ring exchange.
