    @linaco80

     

    Thank you for sharing the latest news on the mojito bar. I had no idea that they moved all the live music/ DJ to the teen room and I also have my guest going to the mojito bar after the reception. Thank you!! I will have to make some changes to the itinerary. Question- Do they have a bar set-up in the teen breeze room? I am glad you still had a great time.

     

    @Ydolem

    Beautifull wedding!!!! Thank you for sharing your pics, advice and experience. Congratulations!

    Yes thank you for the mojito bar update....sounds like a lot of us had plans to keep the party going there.  Seems the teen louge worked out just fine....I also wonder is there a bar there?

    HI all! 

     

    Sorry I have not been able to keep up with the thread lately. I have been powering through my passport invitations since I picked up my computer from being repaired and haven't looked up since.

     

    Since I have been MIA much excitement has happened. 

     

    @Ydolem thank you for sharing your review and your photos. Great tips on where to take photos plus your reception setup was stunning. I was there for my BdR during your wedding weekend and your setup looked stunning.

     

    @linaco80 congrats on the marriage, time flew by I remember talking to you when it was 3 months before your wedding. Big congrats, very happy for you. Also I caught your wedding on the webcam! Loved the ceremony:)

     

    Also to those that have upcoming weddings, so excited for you and I am sending best wishes and enjoy your time down there.

     

    @HolaAmigos I believe you posted back a week or so ago about the food and setting thes up decor. @linaco said it perfect that the food is by personal preference. Some brides here have said they go with the buffets because there are more options and some say they want that sit down dinner. If you have more than 30 people in your group you get to choose two different entrees plus you automatically get a vegetarian dish, so you are really getting three options. If you have less thean 30 people then you choose one entree plus you get a vegetarian. I will say the buffet does have quite a few options within each tho. 

    I am going with the Pick and choose and picking two surf and turf options.

    Hi gals! We are getting married at Azul Sensatori in September. 
     
    We are on a super tight budget so I am going crazy trying to find ways to cut costs at Sensatori. The prices they charge for the add-ons  are outrageous!
     
    I have a million questions but I'd like to start asking what you have done for centerpieces and decorations! I am concerned about  how heavy they will be and customs restrictions.
     
    I am also worried about the bouquets.
     
    Any ideas or pictures to share?


    These are my $10 center pieces. I went to dollar tree and used bowls and glued them to a candlestick (using e6,000 glue), I hot glued on white petals from dollar tree. The plate and stand were 99 cent store I painted over some cheesy saying and I'll paint the table numbers on. The most expensive was my vintage cordial glass, I bought them at three dollars a piece from an eBay auction, I'm in love with them. It will be annoying to lug it down there but if you give a couple friends a carry on you can split it up and customs/weight won't be an issue.
    I used Pinterest as a reference and I handmade the flowers for my bouquet and hot glue them onto a Styrofoam ball, and added my grandmothers vintage earrings and some rhinestone brooches. For the bridesmaids bouquets I used some flowers from dollar tree and trimmed down the stems and added ivory colored ribbon, they turned out well for only costing a couple bucks each.

      I was super stressed even just before going down for the BdR. After a couple of hours there and talking to the coordinators I finally relaxed.

        @Ybonilla  and @BreeShort

        Yes :) They have a full bar, imagine this place: it looks like a sports bar (with a bar serving drinks) and it has a pool table, hockey table, basket ball hoop machine, TV's and chairs so it is a decent size for this place. It is the teens game room during the day and at night it is the "club" the name of this place at Azul Sensatori is "Teens Breeze" and it is open until 2am every day!"


        @carrieandsam Thank you very much!!!

        I dont think it was my ceremony LOL I did not have it at the sky deck :) it was on the beach..I trully need to upload pics VERY SOON!! you are right! time flies and I cant believe I dont have a wedding to plan any longer.

        I was going super crazy...I mean super! I was just cleaning today and found an envelope with $170 in cash from the bank inside of a drawer LOL WOW that is scary!! I was crying for money while planning the wedding and leaving the cash like that inside a drawer...I must have forgotten about it with all the craziness  :(

         

        Food: Yes, it is a personal choice :)  the painful part of choosing the more than 2 options once you get more than 30 ppl is to specify who eats what on a sitting card, I chose lobster and filet mignon BUT many of my guests did not eat shellfish so I made a lobster sign as "do not serve" then I made a list of each table referencing who ate what which matched my cards...pretty stressful to be honest.


        ONE THING TO REMEMBER: the pier is not open as of now, so if  you planned to take photos on it...please have a back up ...there is a villa close by where we took pictures...I cant wait for those!

         

        There is a bar called "waves lounge" located by the adults only pool, they bring piano and live music almost every night...go there with your hubby and enjoy a romantic time alone

         

        My catamaran was the BEST thing we ever did (it was complimentary except the food and drinks)

         

        Le Chique (super fancy for me) it was included with out honeymoon suite so we did not pay the $25 each, it was so fancy :) and beautiful, gazebo #5 is the ONLY place where you make reservations for that restaurant, go as soon as you get there because it gets booked super quickly. It is $25 for the tasting menu and $110 to sit with the chef by the bar or something like that. We did not pay the $25 each and wanted to cancel last minute because came super tired from the catamaran, however they would charge us $25 each if we did not go (cancelled)...so we ended not cancelling dinner at LeChique..it was wonderful!
