We are February 20!!  We spent a couple days straight (felt like it anyway) going from blog to blog and emailing various vendors, we stumbled across Sarani Photography, and I think this will be our choice pending approval from the Sensatori! The Reviews on this site seem warm and postive, plus getting the wedding video was an added perk that we didn't think we could afford.

I'm having a hard time deciding about bringing a photographer with me from Calgary, Canada - or hiring someone in Mexico. What are other brides doing in terms of photography?

 

I interviewed Elizabeth, too. I love her and her work. Unfortunately, her prices were over my budget. I am using Chris Schmitt

Good Luck

Azul Sensorati sounds like a fabulous resort, but I'm having trouble getting my mind wrapped around all of the crazy vendor restrictions! One of the things that I was interested in was having fire dancers and possibly a guitarist at my wedding.  Are those options available (and other interesting entertainment)?  Can anyone comment on the quality of the Azul-approved vendors?  I would be bringing in a photographer from the U.S., most likely, or trying to schedule someone like Elizabeth Medina.

You can check the Lomas Travel website for live entertainment options. I'm thinking about a jazz guitarist. I am also thinking about making a playlist on an iPod, renting equipment from AS and not having a DJ. I need to find someone locally who program the iPod with the songs we want. Has anyone else done that?

Hi, and welcome to the forum. It is unfortune about the vendor fees, but with enough research I am sure you will find everything to make a perfect dream come true. Take a look at the official thread- http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/84306/official-azul-sensatori-thread/30#post_1907178 , you will hopefully find more details or links to help you plan. In the meantime, if anyone has any questions regarding the El Dorado Seaside (sister resort), I am down here right now enjoying the sun!

Hi Ashley, I did not source the banners through the hotel. I used an Etsy vendor and got one batch of customized -- our names and wedding date -- and one batch of "generic" wedding theme. She offers both options in white.

 

Here is her store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Vintagebabydoll

 

I did ask the resort if they had a vendor for papel picado but it is very seasonal in that region and they could not provide.

We did an iPod playlist with no DJ -- and no rental equipment!

 

If you have an iPod Touch or iPhone, look into WeddingDJ ($1.99). This is what we used for all of our music. I labored for hours over the playlists - ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and reception but it really turned out perfectly. We bought a travel Bose for $300 and took it with us rather than spending $300 to rent their sound system.

 

The resort will provide a sound system for music for your ceremony. They were able to plug our iPhone into the system and run the app for us. Then they took our dock to the cocktail hour space, hooked up the phone and started our next playlist. Same for moving from cocktail to reception venue. I had the remote in my pocket but only had to adjust volume once and pause for speeches.

 

We had a small group (20) so the Bose without extra speakers was plenty loud enough for the reception. Just another option!

I have never stayed at Azul Sensatori but we just got back last week from 7 nights at the resort next door, Secrets Silversands. This was our third visit in 3 years. The only time I had any trouble was last year on the day after I had 7 tequila shots at the bar. I was a little queasy the next day but felt better after coffee and eggs for breakfast. This year, I limited the tequila shots and had no problems. From everything I have heard the high end resorts work hard on food safety and clean water. Most people have few to no problems with stomach ailments.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
