    Oh wow. I dont think I could handle 30 people in Vegas. I can barely control myself! Just shows you how much all these people love you Amy!

But of course, we're booking through a Canadian company who arranges the price with AS (not directly with the resort) so not sure if that's any help for you.

    Hi ladies!! So, I had my mind set on Azul Sensatori and was getting ready to book it, but then started looking at Dreams Riviera Cancun. Imagine that..... second guessing where to have my wedding!!!

    Has anyone been to both resorts and have any comments
    Helllooo! I second guessed even after I booked at Azul. I think its natural to second guess - especially if you have an issue with your WCs or prices go down at the other resort, etc!

    What was your list of "needs" and "wants" in a resort? That might help you choose. I have not gone to a Dreams before, but love to research online! I would consider the reception and ceremony locations between the 2 places plus the extras you want and total cost if your budget if tight.

          Thank you!!! The To Do list always makes me realize how much I get done and it's a great feeling.

          About the banner, the website really does not do it justice. We were surprised at how great it looks in person. High quality, good graphics and huge. Not cheesy in any way. It's a steal too! I would send you a picture of ours but the one we currently have got crushed during the shipping so it's all crinkly. The company is sending us another one set to ship tomorrow. Really great customer service, btw.

            Ladies - I just stumbled upon th emost amazing find. Too bad it's way out of my price range...but here's hoping you have seen something like this for far less than $500.

            Essentially it's a wedding genelogy chart that goes up atthe reception. It links of all of your guests to you but this one does it on a vintage inspired map of constellations. How cool: Wedding Constellations Genealogy Chart NEW by melangerienyc

            Hmm..anyone know an astronomer that could help me with this for less than $550? A girl can dream right?

              I really only planned on having 4 people and it spirled out of control. I could hardly handle 35 at my wedding in Mexico... I just think that my friends love Vegas and it's a 3 hour drive and so it's a simple getaway. I've also pretty much convinced everyone that I really know how to have fun and go overboard for them.

                    I think thats a great price. $3100 for 2 people including airfare! Wow.

                    I know you can get banned for asking people to email you attachment b/c you dont have enough points to download them. There is a whole rules section in the introduction section of the forum. Usually you get banned for 1 or 2 weeks for most things. I think they can do an ultimate ban to - but you'd probably have to spam or push sales on to people to get the lifetime ban.



                    Helllooo! I second guessed even after I booked at Azul. I think its natural to second guess - especially if you have an issue with your WCs or prices go down at the other resort, etc!

                    Thanks both for the info re: banning. I had no idea. (Especially re asking people to email attachments).

                    AmyB about our price I think it is great too - we're lucky! Of course, it's a lot more than that from different gateways so not ALL our guests get such a great deal - but most of them. It's amazing though how quickly people will complain about how expensive it is. It's frustrating when I've work sooo hard with my TA to try and get such an amazing resort at such a REASONABLE rate. Still, people will always complain about something right?!
