    The shoulder has a "veil" like shoulder, which I think will look really pretty on a windy beach!  (I am not wearing one on my head)

      I used DJ Doremixx for 38 guests and it was worth it! I ended up having him play for 5 hours for less than the Lomas DJ for 4 hours and he was able to do all the introductions and play any music people requested. I will look and see if I have any videos of his style. He blends the songs together so it sounds awesome and everyone in my group loved it! He also gives out props such as balloons, masks, glow sticks and did cold fireworks during our first dance.

            Does anyone have a sample sand ceremony script they used?  I asked my WC, and she said there really isn't one.  According to her, there is no wording exchanged on our part, and the minister just says 'a quick little something'.  I've found some online, just wondering what others have done.  I'm looking for a family one, we're having our 3 kids involved.  Thanks!

              I had not heard of etsy before joining this forum, but ended up ordering several things for the wedding from there.  Thanks for the suggestion!

                I figured I would do my part and post about my wedding since I really appreciated reading others' reviews. I found it extremely helpful and I think it was part of the reason that my wedding was PERFECT. I posted my review of the hotel on tripadvisor, so I will stick solely to wedding-related info here.


                Erika Torres was my coordinator in Miami who did all the pre-planning with me. She did an amazing job, and everything we talked about was arranged exactly as planned. On site, Claudia and her team took very good care of me. My fiance and I met with them in their office and we went through the details sheet. They convinced me to buy another flower arrangement and a small wedding cake (supposed to serve ten but it was more than enough for the 28 of us!!). For the free cocktail reception, she convinced us to rent their iPod dock, which was extremely overpriced at $150. I think I could've bought one at that price... Anyway, they put out all the extra stuff we brought just as planned (fans, fabric petals, bubbles, guest book), at no charge. You can only use the fabric petals on the SkyDeck as it would litter the beach.


                I cannot stress enough that my wedding was perfect. We did not want to splurge on everything, but honestly we didn't have to. Dinner at Le Spoon was beautiful, they put up a sheer fabric partition and took the flowers from the gazebo as centrepieces. The manager at Le Spoon brought the mariachi band over to play for us near the end of our dinner. The food was great, no complaints at all. I saw many other weddings all over the resort, and knowing how much extra they had to pay, I was really happy with what I got. In total I spent approximately $2k on our wedding. The SkyDeck option is $1700 alone, so I think it was an extremely good deal for everything I got. The WebCam on the SkyDeck allowed friends & family who couldn't attend to watch at home (without sound, for some reason).


                We did not do our own vows, we used what the minister brought. She was AMAZING too, you could tell she did a ceremony every day. She took off right after the ceremony so we were unable to give her a tip. Oh, and because we didn't want a religious ceremony she did a completely secular ceremony without a problem. Everyone loved our ceremony because it was not very long and it was extremely touching. Guests get bored fast at weddings that drag on for hours, and I know it's all about *you*, but enough cannot be said for people actually enjoying themselves.


                Our only problems were:

                1) The nice silver pen that went with our guestbook was never returned to us.

                2) We tried to pay for the extra items were ordered and had to come back FIVE times to finally pay. It was to the point where I was just going to make them find me, because I was told, "Be at the office at 11." And no one would be there to take my payment. Other times the machine was down. Not the biggest problem, but it's annoying when you want to enjoy your time and you have to keep running to the main building.

                3) As much as other Canadians who were getting married this week tried to convey to the wedding coordinators, they seemed to not care at all that we had terrible experiences with The Wedding Holiday. I assume this is because they get SO much business from this agency, but I warned them that all the negative feedback about that agency would eventually hurt them, as people wouldn't book at Azul Sensatori if they had to put up with the worst travel agency that ever was. Seriously, they overcharged people, they owed me money for months, they said they'd upgraded us when they didn't, they said they booked people in elite seats on the plane (took their money for it too) but never did, didn't return calls, lied non-stop, ugh, it was an awful experience. A bride I met said she almost cancelled her wedding because they were terrible. Claudia seemed more concerned with us telling her how bad they were, rather than saying she'd try and pass the word on to the higher ups. She just kept saying that everything would be fine now at Azul, which we all knew.


                Anyway, it was AMAZING and PERFECT. Everyone did a great job. I got my hair & makeup done at the Spa by Edgar and everyone thought it was beautiful. He was really fast, so I was done earlier than I imagined to have plenty of time for photos.


                Use lots of hair spray ladies, it's windy out there! :)


                I hope you all have wonderful weddings, and relax!

                  I haven't been on here in a few days and just saw that you have left.  I hope you have an amazing time, the wedding will no doubt be beautiful :)

                  The time has flown by and dragged at the same time if that is even possible!


                  I am so excited and I can't wait to come back and post my photos and review for you all to see. I have been addicted to this site for months now and I just love, love, LOVE looking at everyone's pictures. I have never seen one bride who didn't look beautiful, so that calms me a little bit! lol


                  Thanks to all the past Brides for all the info and tiny details you added here....for my type A, control freak personality this site has been a godsend. I feel like I have already done a site visit! For all of you just starting out and finding this thread, I suggest (yes it takes days) but go back to the start of this thread and read through! All and I really mean ALL of your questions about lights, lanterns, number of steps down the isle, to the number of outlets at Zavas Plaza will be answered! Also, read the planning journals (my personal fav) there are some truly great ideas on there. ANd nice photos too!

                  Our photographer is Sweet Caribbean so if anyone else is using them or considering them, email me after the wedding and I will let you know how they were. But so far they have been really terrific to work with.

                  Ok so see you all when I am a married woman!

Packed our packs and headed to the airport. So I just spent the last week in Germany trying to arrange everything.


                    Hope all is going well, and I promise I will get that info out shortly.

                      I've been scoping this site out for a while but we just confirmed our date a little over a month ago.  April 14th, so we're super close together.

                      I'm new on here.  We get married at Azul Sensatori on 20th April 2012.  Hoping to gain a few tips with the planning on here along the way!! Believe it or not I've actually been pretty organised and got loads sorted already.  I've read through a few of your posts, many which fill me with confidence and some which have worried me slightly :(


                      Any other brides to be getting married around April next year?
