Hi everyone! Anyone have experience dealing with the live musicians? I have had my heart set on using a Live solo musician for the ceremony and having them play the Love Actually theme song ie. Glasgow Love Theme by Craig Armstrong for the processional. I had booked the violinist but their song lists are terrible and so short. It seems ridiculous to pay 700 for 45 minutes when we have zero control over song choices. My WC is looking to see if they will play it but she seems clueless about it so far. Anyone have any experience with these live musicians or have any advice? Anyone book a live musician and get to choose a song for them to play? That's what I'd love clarification on and I feel like my WC will never know. Thank you so much! :)

Hi ladies,

 

Has anyone used/hired a local videographer? Any recommendations?

Also, have any of you had a friend or relative be your officiant instead of using the person at the resort? Is this even an option? I thought I'd throw it out to you gals before I talk to my WC. My fiancee would like to have one of our good friends, and I know he would do an amazing job, but not sure how this works. Would love any feedback you have on this piece.

We actually had a cousin sing (with background IPod music) while I was walking. They didn't question or hesitate with this. I know its a little different , but wanted to let you know

We used Sarani Photography and Video. They were absolutely amazing! They paid attention to every detail and I didn't feel like they were in my face. Here's the link to my video and pictures.

Has anybody ever been upgraded to a Presidential Suite? Or is it always the Honeymoon Suite?

Yes. Well...people in my group were usually upgraded a level above their purchased room.; So my friend who purchased a room level below presidential suite was upgraded to presidential suite.

We used Sarani for video and photo as well. Not sure yet how it all turned out as we won't get the finished products for a few more weeks. Sarani herself wasn't there, but another of her photographers...I did not care for her. Just hope her photos are nice. The video people were fine, they were there but in your face like someone else said.

 

And I am sure it won't be any problem to have someone else officiate the wedding instead. Just talk to the WC.

Hey ladies! If your looking for a wedding photographer or video Grapher, look no further. We used Sarani Weddings and they were absolutely amazing. From beginning to end they were professional and paid attention to every detail. We could not be happier with their work. They are not Vendor approved by Azul Sensatori so you will have to pay the outside vendor fee but it's so worth it. Sarani also works with you on that matter, she gave us an extra hour to make up for the cost. Below is our video and pictures, they speak for themselves.

Hi everyone. My hygienist told me about this website and forum and I am so happy that she did. I will be getting married at Azul May 2017 on the Sky Deck.

 

Did anyone use an outside vendor for flowers? I saw some of the prices for centerpieces on the Lamos website, but they were kind of outrageous. I'm in the process of getting quotes from 2 outside florists  found on this website that had great reviews.

 

I am also looking into photographers and videographers and happy to see from prior posts that Del Sol is not an approved vendor. So far a few brides have told me to look into Fine Art Studios. Love their work so far,has anyone ever used them?

Congratulations on everyone's upcoming wedding. Regardless of who you choose we always suggest picking a professional photographer/videographer over a friend or family member. Friends and family are here to enjoy your wedding and not bear the stress of capturing all the perfect moments from your big day.

 

I'm not saying go with us (even though you'll love us  ;) ) but please don't have uncle joe do your photos. You will be seriously disappointed.

As far as decor, many brides use Katy. She lives in Playa del Carmen and rents out many items, she also sells items you can use for favors. She packs up everything nicely in a suite case and you meet up with her to pick up the items. That way you bring it into the hotel along with your stuff and you won't be charged and outside vendor fee. Here's the link for her info...

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
