    That is true...you pay 2 times. I had yellow bows for the ceremony, but to save some money we did white bows for the reseption. They are cheaper but not much!

      Afrommert - Welcome! This is a GREAT thread. If I did not have this thread I would have been really scared to get married at Azul. These girls will keep you sane :)

      I have already gotten married at Azul and I absolutely LOVED It. I have to agree that packages are pretty pricy and just when you think you paid for everything...you go the meeting a couple days before and drop an unexpected $2,000 for basically nothing.

      I had the MOST perfect day ever! I SWEAR not one thing went wrong. The resort is georgeous and VERY clean. The only complaint I have would be the entertainment. There is ONE show every night, but it's more geared towards older people. The pools close around 6pm so after that you go to dinner and possibly go to the show if you want to. I spent everyday at the pool, took a nap, dinner, show, bed. My guests loved it too.

      The wedding was perfect. DO NOT WORRY! Their is a wedding coordinator on site at the wedding and the reception. No need to worry PROMISE! I have been to dreams as well. not nearly as nice or friendly!

      Good luck!

          Lilly,

          The travel agent is a good way to go. I think almost everyone on the thread has gone the TA route. Its also nice to have someone to represent you just in case anything goes wrong. I recommend getting references from the trave agent to see how they handle destination wedding groups. Hope this helps.

          Andrea-

            Can I tell you how much I love you ladies! Thank you so much for your well wishes, and for making me laugh... Chicago to Vancouver.... yes, that might be more than a short jaunt, but I appreciate the thought!

            My MOH is helping me out today -some last minute pick ups and getting the OOT bags done.

            Unfortunately the drugs made my Dad throw up.... so he's just on Advil. Hopefully the pain will subside by this weekend. We see his eye specialist tomorrow so we should know by then if he can make it for sure.

            In the meantime, I'm going to just try to catch up, pack and do everything I can to relax.

            Thank you all again for being so great!

I have to miss the last 2 days of school for my wedding and haven't told my principal yet ...yikes!
                I told my principal at the end of the school year in May and she is fine with it. The only thing that sucks is that I have a bunch of personal days saved up but the district doesn't allow you to take any more than 2 in a row (except under extenuating circumstances). What that means for me is this: I am taking off 9 school days. I am calling in "sick" the first 2, then I am taking 2 personal days, then the next 5 days I have to take unpaid! It sucks but totally worth it for the experience we are going to have. I can't wait!

                When are you planning to tell your principal? Do you guys have a similar policy?? At least you are only taking 2 days.

                  Hey Bree, I have just been emailing my WC about that.

                  They DON"T have a steamer, so I have to bring my own. Bullocks. They do have a dress press though. Because of the style of my dress a steamer would be much better. Off to find a small portable one!

                    It has been a couple of days since I posted... I've been AWOL.

                    I have some icky news...

                    So, on wednesday I get a call from my dad -the person walking me down the aisle and the only blood relative I have coming to my wedding- he fell and was calling form the ER.

                    those of you who are squimish -don't keep reading.

                    Turns out, he tripped over something(?) on the side walk, went flying through the air, ripped the cataract off his eye, ripped the eye open, it started to bleed near the back, which in turn pushed everythng out of it... he had emerg surgery on wed night.

                    So, he is now 100% blind in his left eye, it is filled with blood so it is red and has a lot of pressure, and he may have to have it removed. He also has a wicked purple and red bruise on the left side of his face, as well as some scabbing, though he didn't break any facial bones.

                    OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!

                    The doctors think he should be able to travel still -we are leaving one week today- though his girlfriend was trying to figure out if there was a train or something from Vancouver to Cancun -no such luck.

                    Here's the piss of though. He's going to feel like crap. Here we are heading down for a lovely week in the sun to celebrate the one and only wedding of his only child, and he is going to feel like crap the whole time.

                    Though we are considering dressing him like a pirate and calling him "Pirate Jim". Kinda funny.

                    Kay, just needed to vent, thank you. I appreciate it.



                    I think i need a drink -he probably does too.


                    ITS A WEEK BEFORE WE LEAVE AND I FEEL LIKE PUKING!!

                    sorry -thanks
                    Ahh Allisa, I'm soo so sorry to hear about your dad's accident - it sounds awful.

                    I understand what you're saying you feel like - you're feeling guilty that he's had this major accident and you want him to give you away on the happiest day of your life. But remember this...if you were your kid, wouldn't going to your wedding make you so happy and make you not want to miss it for the world...and be thankful that he will still be able to see it - the accident sounds awful but at least it hasn't left him completely blind before your wedding.

                    Maybe coming to your wedding will be just what he needs to lift his spirits - being around those so incredibly in love makes you forget all our other worries.

                    Stay positive chick and I hope your dad makes a speedy recovery :o)

                    Katie.
