    Erika,
    Your pictures were beautiful. They did some really cool things with lighting. You guys looked like you had a great time! Where did you have your reception at?
    Thanks for sharing!

        Thanks for sharing your pics Erica.
        That dress looked amazing on you!
        Did they have entertainment at all at the resort? If so what kind did they have and was it nightly?

          Hey girls!

          First to answer a few recent questions. Yes, there is entertainment nightly. It's spotty in terms of quality, but it only lasts an hour or so and some is really good, some is not so good.

          Dress code: Le Chique is pants for men. All of the other places are pretty casual during the day, but no wet bathing suits. Men need to wear shirts. We never had any problems.

          ALSO, I've finally done my planning thread. My review should be done soon too!

            Thanks,

            We went with the 5 hr. package from Claudia off of the Lomas website. I originally was going through Claudia, but at the last minute we had to go through the resort, because they were going to charge us the extra $500 even though they are approved for the resort. I would almost do a longer package though.

            I absolutley love your earrings! If you don't mind sharing, where did you find those? I am looking for that style.

            Congratulations!!
            Thanks! I looked everywhere for earrings!! I found these on Evesaddiction.com they had some great options, I wanted something vintage looking without spending a ton of money and gladly they weren't airlooms because they were stolen after our wedding at the Resort

            I was there when they were doing construction on all the outdoor areas, so our reception was moved to Zocolo terrace.

            We never really went to the nightly entertainment, so I'm not quite sure. But I believe they had something at the Garden Terrace. And they usually had entertainment in the Mojito lounge.

              How many people sit at each table during the reception? I was told 8, but by looking at some of the pictures of receptions it looks like 5. Does anyone know?

                KittenHeart - we have requested Friday 7th May to get married - still waiting for confirmation. We didnt think you could get married at the weekend but obviously you can!

                We'll have to compare notes as we'll all be there at the same time! What date are you getting to the hotel?

                amy - thanks for yours too...I didn't realise Azul Beach was a seperate place!

                Just rushing to get into bed but will try to reply more tomorrow.

                Katie. xx

                Oh wow Katie, how fun! I was hoping I'd get to meet a BDW bride there while I was there! I am arriving there Tuesday, May 4th and leaving Tuesday, May 11th

                We are doing the Sky Deck ceremony and Zocolo reception :)

                I would love to exchange timing advice with you, I'm kinda lost at the moment as to what to do!

                  Thanks to all of you who helped me with my price dilema. I found a local TA and she is awesome! She was willing to work with me and get the best price I could.

                  Can I be put down for a March 3, 2010 wedding please??
                  I am working with Grace and she is also awesome!!

                    glad I'm not the only one!!

                    we're there for 2 weeks from 2 - 16 and hopefully getting married on the 7th! because we're flying in from England (UK) we are making this our honeymoon as well - this is not such a cheap option as we first thought!!

                    aww we wanted to Sky deck ceremony but as we booked through Thomson (our TA) we couldn't as they don't offer it. we're going to have to see if when I get my wedding coordinator, if they'll let us add it on. we haven't got where the reception will be yet either - guessing that also comes when we get our W.C.

                    what are your plans so far? everyone seems like pros on here! have you got your own photographer or the one with the hotel package??

                    Katie.

                      Katie.

                      I know right?! As this adds up I'm like wait... I thought this was supposed to be the inexpensive route! LOL, I just keep telling myself, relax it's a vacation too :)

                      You should ask Grace (who is my WC too with Karisma) to see if they can book the sky deck for you. My TA just requested it be done and Fabio let him know it was booked.

                      Ok this is what I've got so far, which doesn't feel like enough:

                      Secured wedding date
                      Secured ceremony spot
                      Signed a contract and blocked rooms at the resort
                      Created my wedding website with all the info and RSVP location
                      Designed, crafted and put together my STD boarding passes and sent them all out
                      Booked my photographer who will do my engagement shoot next month and fly down to shoot my wedding day. He is traveling for free, staying for 3 days and shooting my wedding so he will technically be a guest.
                      Wedding bands purchased
                      Wedding party selected and accepted
                      Chosen a friend to MC the event
                      Picked our first dance song (I think) and started downloading songs for wedding dancing since we're using my iPod
                      Next we're designing two different postcards with RSVP by dates for those unresponded and for those who have RSVP'd that they will attend will get a postcard nudging them to book early for good pricing.

                      I'm not getting ready to try on wedding dresses and discover my flower choice for my bouqet and start my DIY project for invitations etc.

                      =)
