I was one of the brides that spent 13 months planning my wedding on this site(thanks for all the tips ladies!), then Swine Flu came about 2 weeks before we were supposed to fly out.
We had to cancel everything and luckily the only money we paid and couldnt get back is from Tamms photos. (if anyone plans on using her, get a quote from her and then let me know we got a really good deal from her that we could possibly transfer to someone else,@ heather riise hunder on Facebook)
We ended up moving 38 guests to (paradisus Princesa Del Mar) Varadero, Cuba instead.
I just wanted to let you girls know (the brides on a budget) that you may want to think of other options.
Our Wedding package at Azul with private event, Dj, cake, flowers, etc. was to be $9,435. US
Our wedding in Cuba included rehersal dinner for 38 in private restaurant with a trio band (they even cooked up my husbands fish he caught that day on a fishing trip) champayne toast at wedding, live band, decorations, cocktail hour, private dinner, cake, dj, decorated room, some flowers, basic photographer (bring your own!) breakfast in bed and a honeymoon dinner. The price for all this was $335. US. We saved over $9,000.00 and we were treated like GOLD. There were no additional costs for all the little things, they just wanted to make us happy on our special day.
We had saved up for the wedding ourselves and having paid for our wedding and still have $9,000 in the bank is a wonderful feeling to start our lives together.
I am sure Azul is so beautiful and breathtaking, but seriously the way they overcharge for every little thing is just ridiculous. Just something to consider,
Thanks again for everyones information, bright ideas and support through all of this,
