    My fiance and I are doing a sky wedding and booked it for that reason, because it will be private.  They do include with it (not like they are worth that much) cold hand towels, water bottles, prgrams, and fans for your guests.  We did our bridal rehersal visit back in June, and did peek in on some beach weddings...the resort tries their best to keep any random non-wedding guests out of the area.  People will look down from above though.  Good luck with your planning!!!

      My WC sent me this link to help me price everything and pick out all the details of our wedding.

      Does anyone have a breakdown on floral arrangement costs? I remember reading something about the elevated costs at the resort... and I am just curious what range we were talking about .... Currently i am thinking peonies, orchids, and hydranges... but..the orchids may go depending on price...

        Hi:  I bought from this site www.idearibbon.com and got 270 ft of tulle for $57 total inc shipping to Canada.  I'm tulling up a storm!

        Also, if anyone has ivory color sheers I would love to buy from you :)

          Thanks Murmel! That's awesome. I'm trying to find ways to cut costs, so this seems like a good option.

There was actually a hotel employee who sat behind the amp the whole night, and made sure to play our dinner music, etc. and would then fade the music when our MC or guests came up to speak. When the speech was done the music would come back on. (so not really a DJ, but more than I was expecting)

          Happy "legal" wedding day! We did the same thing, made no big deal of it, and truly consider Mexico our Wedding! Have fun.

            Hi Ladies

             

            I have written this 4 times now and every time the computer freezes and I loose it arrrhhhh

             

            Anyway i'm now a happily married women

             

            Well to start with all you ladies getting married at Sensatori you are very lucky ladies, the resort is absoultly amazing and the staff are great.

             

            We got upgraded to the Honeymoon suite on our 3rd day as they had allocated us the wrong room, the Thomsons staff were great there. Our room was 4332 and we had a lovely view of the beach so I got to watch alot of weddings before ours. We had our blood tests at 9am the day after our arrival then another meeting at 1pm. We were gutted as we had to change our witnesses as they needed to send our info of before our original witnesses arrived even though my OS WC had said it was fine. Our wedding was the only wedding on our date which was great as on some days there was 3/4 weddings a day. After watching some other weddings we decided to move ours from the beach to the rooftop. Our reasons were because the beach was quite small and you had alot of random walkers by who didnt care if a wedding was going on and people all stood up the top watching (if you get married on the beach ask them to make sure the top is clear for you or you'll end up with the spectators in your photos) where as the roof was totally private even though it did cost us an extra £1000 . We then kept changing our reception from the Zavaz Plaza to the beach then back to the Zavaz Plaza.

             

            The day before I had my acrylic nails done in the salon, this was lovely a bit of time on my own. The morning of the wedding my bridesmaids and me went for champagne breakfast together in Spoons, this was a nice start to the day. Then at 11am my mum and I went to the spa, my mum had a manicure (included in my package) and I had a pedicure, hair and makeup done. I didnt have my hair or make up trial as I didnt want to stress if i didnt like it and I totally didnt need to worry. They had books of different hair styles and I took my tiara and diamonte pins with me. At midday my bridesmaids came and joined me in the spa they used the Bridal suite to get ready in, where they done their own hair and make up, they loved the all getting ready together and of course we had more champagne. Also they were able to use their hair sprays and one of my bridesmaids had a black eye (long story) and the spa lady covered it up properly for her. They left me at 1:45 and went back to mine to order room service. I got back at 2pm and went mad as my room had still not been cleaned and I had called them at 9am to tell them I had a photographer coming at 2:30. My mum came and started getting me in my dress and the photographer arrived, 2:50 the girls were out on the balcony having room service yep I was meant to be getthing married at 3pm there was no way i was going to be on time!! Well after a mad rush and my mum rushing back to get herself ready, photos on the balcony we left my room at 3:15. I then had to walk through the pool area with everyone cheering, clapping and taking photos the nerves started to kick in. When I got to the roof the bridesmaids and pageboys music started (Take That Greatest Day) and the tears started aswell, I started to cry uncontrollably, my girls left me with tears in their eyes and then it was just me & my dad and my music started (Bruno Mars Just the way you are) desperatley trying to stop crying we made our way down the aisle, as soon as i saw Jay beaming I couldnt stop smiling. The service was performed in spanish and translated into english this was lovely, we then had a Sand Ceremony which Harry & Hollie joined us in. The whole thing was shown on a weblink aswell which some of our friends got to see (we also got a copy on dvd as we asked for it). We then had some photos on the roof before going down to the beach for more photos. On the way to the beach my son stood on my dress and ripped my dress, my mum quickly tucked it all up (good old mum). We then went to the mexican bar and had a drink before heading to the Zavaz Plaza area for our reception. We decorated the tables with pink scatter crystals, maracas, then i had vases with pink water beadsin and the bridesmaids bouquets, I had pink light up ballons hanging around the pergola it looked lovely. we went for the Family Style dinner and wow it was amazing and so much of it. We had DJ Doremixx he was fantastic, and the balloons, masks and glow sticks he gives out went down a treat. He had everyone up dancing all night long, I didn't want the day to end! Our first dance we did a evolution dance, we started off with Savage Gardens 'I knew I loved you before I met you' then broke into various funny songs (kung fu fighter, ymca, mc hammer etc) this went down a treat erveryone laughed so much. The staff were great, they remembered everyones drinks and made sure they had a refill as soon as they had finished, they brought us various shot throughout the night. After it had finished alot of us went up to the Mojito Bar and carried on dancing and drinking. One word for the whole day 'Excellente'. I will put some photos on but if you want to see more add me one facebook Michelle Herbert, and if you want to ask anything ask away.

                Wow Thanks murmel!! That helps a bunch!!!
                 

                Originally Posted by murmel 



                I know the feeling, when I started looking at photographers in Mexico, I was finding rates from $900 to $12,000!!! So it's really hard to tell what the real price is. In the end, the photos were very important to us, so we made the decision to go with a photographer whose style we liked. Then we compared prices of the top 5. In the end it cost us less, to fly a local photographer from home down with us. Our total cost was about $3500, and included photos from our cocktail party, full wedding day (about 10 hours) and TTD.

                 

                A couple things you should be aware of when looking for a photographer:

                -is it a style you like (ie. posed photos, journalistic, lots of photo editing)

                -how many hours will be required (ie. do you want photos of you getting ready?, just the wedding ceremony, reception, etc.) Be realistic, a minimum of 4 hours will likely get you the ceremony and photos of family/friends and you after the ceremony.

                - is TTD extra?. Is there extra charge to come back out another day? (since usually you would do the TTD a day or two after the wedding)

                - do you own the rights to your photos? Or do you have to order every single photo from the photographer?? (this was a major point for us. I wanted to have all my photos on a CD, so that I could decide what I wanted to do with the photos. For example I made photobooks for all our grandparents as gifts, since none of them could attend.

                 

                Good luck!

                    If you dont mind me asking... what type of a package did you get from them and were they priced below 2000?
