    Hi Christine! 


    I am so glad to know someone who is getting married right before us! You will have to leave me a note at the front desk or something if you have any last minute advice ;)


    Also, thank you so much for bringing up the info about Mexican customs... I'm sure I wouldn't have thought about that until the day we left for the airport!

      Thank you! I did something really similar and ordered it from

      Kate, I just realized that you probably don't have enough posts to open attachments.  So here is a screen shot of part of my itinerary (screen shot didn't capture all of it, sorry).  Alternatively, you can send me your email address, and I will send you my file.

      I see Tammy has already replied to you, but check out the amazing Bride Dress Rehearsal deal below in my signature! Great way to check out the beautiful resort and enjoy some sunshine!

      Unfortunately it is $800 for EACH outside vendor you use. Or you can have the vendor stay for 3 nights or more (depending on your room rate this might help).

        Ladies, as you know I've very new to BDW as I can't book my wedding until April I m trying to start buying/planning as much as possible and wondered if you could answer a few questions please... As I'm going for the pearl package and want my wedding in the Gazebo on the beach have any of you seen any others use Taffeta to decorate the gazebo? If so how does it look? I cannot find these crystal acrylic bead back drops (for the gazebo) anywhere in the UK..has anyone got any idea where I can find them? Do you know if the hotel offers any fireworks or the reception? Jade

          Hi Jenny!


          Did you have a chance to check out Zocalo Alfresco and Plaza Zavas while you were at the Azul? Which did you like better? Are they truly private areas? Is there any other location that you think would be good for a private dinner and reception?


          The pictures they have make it really hard to tell much of anything and I'm trying to solidify my dinner and reception location.


          Also, was there any places you saw that would be good for the cocktail hour before dinner?


          Thanks for your input!! :)

            This is so ironic.. my colors are purple (plum shade), wisteria (similar to lavandar) and peuter grey! If you chose to do purple as well we could definitely coordinate how to share certain decorations, etc! I like your idea of purple and teal, as well :) 


            I have a lot planned, but then again I feel like I don't....


            I have: a photographer (Samuel Luna), a DJ (DJDoremixx), all locations picked and reserved for ceremony, cocktails, and reception, menus for cocktail and reception including cake, flights and room booked, dress, my FI ring, invitations sent, spa appointments booked, reservation booked for rehearsal dinner as well as a request for an actual rehearsal, invitations sent, 34 guests booked, a FEW things purchased for OOT bags... and TONS of info saved on my computer about where to order certain decorations that I like and plan to make. Sounds like a lot, but i know I still have soooo much. 


            How about you?? What have you planned so far??

            Wow, you have so much more done than I have.  I need to really catch up.  We only sent save the dates, blocked off hotel rooms, booked our photographer and got my dress.  We also picked our locations for ceremony and reception. Where are you having your reception? Which menu did you pick and what are you doing for center pieces?  I need to get started on the OOT bags soon and look for sheers and chair bows for the ceremony.  I just bought lanterns for gazebo decoration and stringed lights for reception.  Not sure what else to use.  Any suggestions?

              WOW!! LOVE!!! Job well done, your guests will love these! I was thinking of just going the Vistaprint route for pre-wedding brochures. I can't find enough hours in the day to do anything myself lately LOL I'll be sure to share once I have a preview ready =) I bought a Groupon I paid $17 for it and it's $70 worth of goods from Vista! Wahoo!

              I made my brochures on vista print! They came out super cute. Ill try and post a picture later. =) vista print products come out great!

                Has anyone chosen the Pick and Choose Menu? How did you make your menus? Organize the list for the resort? Thanks

                Hi Gina!


                I did the pick & choose menu for our EDR wedding. We had everyone choose their entree as part of their RSVP. I had a list of everyone's entree choices in excel that I gave the resort, and then also had the place cards "coded" with the entree choice. The orange starfish was one entree, the blue scallop shell was another, and then the blue trumpet shell was our vegetarian option (we had 2 vegetarian guests in our party). Here's a photo of the place cards I did:
