Thanks for your support!

    Michelle- we have ALL had the ups and downs. Please use everyone here for support and being a sound board. Most importantly, make the decisions you and your FI are happy with. Since at the end of the day, that's who should be happy!

      Ive not been on here for a few weeks.  Ive been so busy with other bits of the wedding planning.  Its great to see so many of you moving forward with your plans!

       

      As the wedding draws closer I am finding more and more hurdles to jump!! Unfortunately our wedding party of 24 has dropped to 17 adults, 2 children.  I'm so worried about the set up of the wedding.  I have opted for the beach BBQ and worried it will look ridiculous with only 3 tables and a dancefloor for such a small number.  Has anyone else had a wedding or booked a wedding with numbers of less than 20? 

       

      A few people have said I'm worrying over nothing but it matters to me that the set-up looks right!

       

      Hoping you guys can advise

        HI Everyone!  I am so excited to see a blog on Azul Sensitory!  I am getting married Oct 26th 2012 at Azul.  I am have slowly been piecing through the replies and would love to get feed back on brides who had more then 30 guests and how they did the dinner part.  Our bridal party is a little larger then i think the typical DW.  five on each side with another male and female as ushers.  I know it is still so early but I wonder how the 'private event' dinner arrangements went for other brides.  What you did, the added cost, was it on the beach?  pictures would be awesome too!  thanks ladies!

          Hi Amy,

          have you considered a beach reception? I know that one of the options our coordinator offered was to have a big long banquet table. You may find this suits you better, have you given this some thought? Will the children be at the party? Would the parents be open to babysitters? just so you know what the options are...

          Jessie - I am also going with DJ Doremixx. He said the only form of payment he accepts is through Western Union. Is this how you paid? I'm sure it is fine but i just wanted to double check. I always get weary about sending payments through western union. Thanks!

          We used our iPod and their sound system for our welcome party on the beach, and I thought the sound quality was great.  I had no complaints about that, and they did have someone there to man the equipment all night (not that we really needed it at the party because we pretty much just played my husband's songlist non-stop).  For our reception, at Zavaz Plaza, we hired DJ Doremixx.  We had Ivan, who did an awesome job, and our guests were dancing to the very end, and begging for more when it was time for our reception to end.  Our outside vendor fee was $500, so it was still cheaper to hire Doremixx than go with the resort's DJ, so it was a no-brainer for us.  Of course, I have never seen the resort's DJ in action, so I can't speak to his skills, but he has gotten a lot of poor reviews.  If it were me, I'd spend the extra $100 for Doremixx, since it isn't that much difference.  Or try to negotiate Doremixx (or other outside vendor) down from the $800 they charge. 

           

          All that being said, I think doing it yourself with their sound system is a decent option too.  If you don't mind coming up with a playlist that you think you and your guests will enjoy and don't care about the extras (props, lighting, etc.), I think the sound system would suit your needs.  Whichever way you choose to go will work out perfectly well!

              Michelle,

               

              It is your day....make sure you do what will make you happy!  :)

              I had a little drama too, but in the end, wouldn't have had in any other way!  It was amazing to be away with our closest friends and family for 7 days...

              Good luck to you!
