    We chose plated for the cost vs. Buffet; also because in the US buffets are cheaper and the perception is different. Buffets can be more laid back and give more food options, it depends on your type of reception and how you envision it either way works I would say... Let your bud give you that decision.

    @BecomingaRiggio we are going the BBQ deluxe bc I liked the variety of food you recieved for the price, it gives everyone an option of things they may like instead of forcing someone to have either fish or beef. Also it'sore laid back and that's kinda the feel we want. Plus we only have about 30 guests now haha

    We decided to do the BBQ Deluxe and we added on lobster tail. I've heard great things about their grill. I think this gave a wide variety of options for the guests. Dinner will also move quicker, more time for the party! It also gives a variety of desserts so I do not have to get as big of a cake.

    I'm just being nosey, never seen such a thing, I just assumed it was it's old building or maybe above the lobby!
    It looks beautiful and a ceremony plus cocktail up there would be awesome - yay!

    We offered a cocktail before the ceremony and a champagne toast after on the Sky Deck. It was fabulous! The view is awesome. Plus, I didn't have to worry about sand in my shoes if we had married on the beach. The pre-ceremony drinks, ceremony and champagne toasts took about an hour. Then, everyone moved to Zocola Terrace for cocktails and appetizers while my husband and I took pictures on the beach and around the resort. By the time we got to the reception, everyone was very, very relaxed and happy!Attached File  image.jpg   83.49KB   9 downloads

    @Jennypert looks like everyone had a great time

    @BecomingaRiggio I am having a sit down because from the get go I knew that is what I wanted. I'm going down in March to confirm my menu so unless the buffets blow me away and it's a must then I'm going with sit down. I just think the way they plate food will really wow my guest so that is another reason and I do not want guest standing in a line. To me it is interesting that the buffet is more expensive but everyone raves about it

      @janjin- ok cool. I am from the DC area!! This cold weather sucks!! Yes, and we still have not had anyone book :(

       

      Yes, the table decor is expensive. I am looking for other alternatives but I really do not want to pack decor to bring with me.

      AWW!! Exciting!! How did your dress shopping go? My sister is coming to DC this weekend so we are going to go on Saturday or Monday.

       

      FYI- I asked about the make-up artist and hair stylist coming to the suite to do make-up and hair and they add a 20% service fee to the total. @Ydolem

      Have you looked into photography? I am really scared that the quality will not be good. I have looked at the pricing and packages but do not know who to choose.

       

       


      Hey Ladies!

       

      Can anyone recommend or give me advice on photographers and/or Djs for Azul Sensatori Mexico? I have read bad and good reviews on many photographers and djs so I am torn on who to select for my big day! Also, paying the waiver fee does not seem like an option. Any advice would help.

       

      thank you :)

      I am using @Pixan Photographer. I feel really comfortable with Jonathan. His rates are very reasonable too. you would incur a vendor fee. For me, in the grand scheme of things, i felt highly uncomfortable using a photog i wasnt completely sold on. Bringing my own DJ. He will be a guest for more than 3 nights.

      Dinner, i had already decided on plated and response cards have been sent but now there are 97 guests. I just wanna party. Less time for dinner sounds good to me
