    oh and I'm starting to worry slightly about the number of people changing their resort from AS - it's making me doubt myself.....

      Me too Katie, I even called Thompsons to see how doable it is to change at this late stage! I think I was just having a crazy moment though cos the more I think about it, i remember the reason why i chose AS in the first place.
      Good news about the dress. that is a big thing sorted. I am just waiting on mine to be finished and hopefully no more fittings needed as being made to measure. I actually can't even remember what it looked like on!!!
      Can you tell me who it is by or style without risking you FH seeing it?

        Ok, here's the thing ladies. I saw Bree's post last night and was like, oh, I could do that and move, too. But then I was like, oh, I'm still going to be stuck paying Lomas crazy reception prices! So who cares. Reviews on TA have gotten better the last few days.

        Two weeks from today, I will be waking up at Sensatori for vacation. I promise if anything even remotely seems bad, I will let you ladies know. Also, I will bring my laptop for live posting!!!

        So, everybody change their karma to positive or something!!! I still have no wedding dress, but going to Atlanta in 2 days, so keep your fingers crossed.

            I'll load the pics on my computer tonight and will attach them to a message for you :)

            I ended up trying on so many dresses I couldn't even guess who the designer is!! I ended up buying from Confetti and Lace because (well, the dress obvioulsy) but also the alterations package they do.

            what did your TA say about moving the wedding?? (just out of interest lol)

            Katie.

              Oh I am excited to see your dress.

              They said that it would not be a problem to move the wedding to anywhere as long as I do it by the 13th September and there may be a £35pp admin charge. If the new location is much cheaper than AS, and as I have already paid in full, I would get the difference refunded.
              As it turns out, i did look at other locations but couldn't really find anywhere I liked as much and especially for cheaper (there was one in maldives).
              I am sticking to my original choice and crossing my fingers and preying for sun.

                My wedding is less than two months away and with the reviews being so sporadic I was unwilling to go through anymore anxiety over the resort issues. Now I have to say that every bride that has come back has been so happy with their wedding. I was not so much worried about the wedding as I was about the inconsistency in service, mechanical issues and the resort being touted as a 5 star when in reality at this point it is more like a 3 star. I think the thing that put us over the edge was the pool and plumbing issues they are still contending with. I guess overall we just wanted a "sure thing." The Azul Beach although it is quite a bit smaller looks like it can give us the personalized service and consistency we have been looking for. The bad thing is that we won't get all the variety of restraunts we wanted, the spa or the bigger more modern rooms. What I did love was that we were able to keep all of our Lomas planning and get moved over with little to no extra expense to us.

                I hope this helps answer why we moved. If we had more time we would have definately stayed and stuck it out. I have been planning for over a year and the emotional rollar coaster that we have been on has been exhausting and made me not look forward to my wedding.

                  oh Bree, that's so awful that you had not been looking forward to your wedding. I hope that changes now and you can start looking forward to it again.

                  Best of luck.

                  Katie.

                    I'm in this mode now of OOT bag stuff, I just found flip flops for my bridal party @ JCrew on sale for $6.40 each - 20% off sale items and free shipping! You can't beat that :)
                    OMG! I am so glad you told me that, I was really confused. My brain is on wedding overload most days.

                      ah ok...I dont think I'd be able to change now anyway as we have all 21 people on my one booking so all the rooms etc I doubt they'd just move to some other hotel and lose a booking that even without the wedding, comes in at £27,000!!!

                      but that's good that you had a look but didn't find anything better that you wanted to change to :) that makes me feel better too :)

                      Now I just need to pray my iPhone will let me upload my pics onto here!!
