I also noticed that they did flowers, cakes, and decorations, so I priced them against what I was getting at Sensatori.
Then I saw a post about the free Welcome Cocktails and someone using it for the wedding cocktail hour. (I was using mine for the day before.) I contacted my wedding coordinator at Azul and asked if I could use that free cocktails for my wedding cocktail hour instead...and she said yes! That is saving me about $1,200.
With Azul I would have gotten the flowers, sheers for the gazebo and a cocktail hour, but going with Fresa Weddings I am getting the flowers, sheers for gazebo, cake pops, and a fire dancer show for only $300 more. And yes, the price difference does include the vendor fee.
Jsal4_ Did Azul charge you just one vendor fee or one for each service? My WC is telling me that Fresa is not allowed to do anything for the wedding even with paying the vendor fee! So frustrating!
