Thanks for the help.
I am a newbie here and just returned from the Sensatori. I am not a bride, however, I attended at wedding and spent 7 days at the resort. Our wedding was on the beach at the north end (this is where all the beach weddings were located this particular week). Great set up and very very beautiful. The reception was on the terrace of Zoccolo and honestly, I am not sure why she picked this spot.....it is (was) super windy!!! And the restaurant is in the shape of a sphere, so from where I was sitting, I couldn't see the bride groom or about 30% of the other guests.
The terrace out by the wave pool, is sooo cute! The week we were there, they added these large wood swings (4) that just make that a lovely and romantic spot. Yes, it is in the middle of the Adult/Premium/Luxury section, however so is every other spot for a service (other than the sky deck). Its not huge, but very intimate (i thought).
The terrace out by the Zoccolo (the center of the resort) is very large. Actually, there was a wedding there that week and even though it was center stage...I think I only caught a glimpse of it for 1 minute, as we walked to dinner. And it's set apart from the actual walkways, so no one has to interfere with your day.
I have been reading this forum as I found it very helpful for our trip, and I just wanted to pass along a little information, perhaps from the non-bride side. Honestly, don't worry and make yourselves sick over the location....Yes, I know you want it to be perfect - and it will!!!!
Oh by the way - the beach receptions (there was 1 while we were there and a private corporate party) looked great!!!! Honestly, if you want a beach wedding - I thought it was perfect sand. Not too hard and not the super fluffy stuff. Who wants that whipping around in the wind! Did I mention wind? Be prepared - pretty windy, everywhere.
Finally, after dinner we retreated to the Mojito Lounge. This seemed to be the place for many after the weddings....It was a bit crowded at times, but many of the larger groups retreated out to the patio (again another windy location). One bride & Groom did the Garter & flower toss on the patio and someone NOT from their party caught it. They all laughed and did a Tequila Shot together.
Anyway - if you have any questions from a guest perspective, ask away.
And - Don't sweat the small stuff!!!!!!
