      Hi everyone!

      I have finally narrowed down my selection for my destination wedding to the Azul Sensatori... despite the minor glitches, sounds like there have been great reviews.

      I have a question with regards to price. I am from Toronto, Canada and planning to have my wedding during the first week of November 2009. I was quoted $1800 per person taxes included for a week - does this sound reasonable? Is this what I should expect for this resort? I was told that new pricing just came in and it will be over $2K after this week. Should I continue researching for a better price? Any insight from past brides or TA, that would be great. I hope to finalize my venue by Friday... so excited!

      t.

        We did the majority of our planning once we were at the resort. I don't think they usually do this though. We were a group of only 11ppl so our planning was quite simple. I had picked our flowers and ceremony location prior but our reception was all done when we arrived. I know there is definitely room for some changes and add-ons in your meeting with the coordinators.
        I think some of the other brides said that you start picking location, flowers, decoration, etc. about 2 months before your set wedding date...I could be wrong though. We booked after the 2 month mark so planning started right away for us.

        I am assuming the $1800 quote is in Canadian dollars. I am from Calgary and we paid $2000 per person for one week in January so I'd say that is about right.

            As far as the added on services for the music, we have not checked into any of that such as the lighting.
            I thought about doing this option too. You may want to check with Fabio as I believe there will be an outside vendor fee for this.......I think it will be the same as bringing in a different photographer, etc.

              Technically, they will be our guest since they are not getting paid. So as far as I'm concerned, they will not be an outside vendor, but a guest at our wedding running the sound system!

              As far as our photographer goes, it has already been pre-appreoved since he will be staying as a guest at the resort as well (they require either a min of a 3 night stay or the $500/day fee). We do not have to pay an additional fee on top of his stay.

                Hello Trayce2222, Thanks for sharing your decision making process. Who do you have to pay the licence fee to?

                  I think that is reasonable. I am from Toronto as well and getting married the beginning of November. We are paying close to that per person. I couldn't find anything cheaper for this calibre of hotel. Who are you booking through?

                    The license fee goes to the DJ company.....I'm not exactly sure what it is for.....they said something about travelling and also the music copywrite?

                      Question for those who have already gotten married at the Sensatori:

                      Is there any sort of rehearsal for the ceremony? I think I remember someone saying they do not do rehearsals, but how does everyone know where to stand, when to walk down the isle, how the flower girl and ring bearers are supposed to stand, etc? I'm getting nervous because I don't want it to be all messed up! How did everyone get their wedding party organized?
