Anybody else get the outrageously cruel email from karisma to all brides about using love and lace? I'm heartbroken. I really hope I can make it work but I want them to confirm in writing that they won't confiscate the stuff i bring in as another bride said that could happen but that seems totally insane. They are basically threatening that it's illegal and we could all be held responsible by the "government". Give me a break... how could a wedding decor rental be illegal.

 

Oh no!!!!!!!! That's awful! I can't imagine that it is really illegal! Does Katy know about this?

What? That's totally ridiculous! The nerve of those people. Maybe if Lomas was more reasonably priced people wouldn't be seeking out other companies to provide decor. I would contact an attorney and see what they say. Make sure you cover your back. I don't believe there's any way they can confiscate your decor. They can't prove you rented it from anyone. I used Love & Lace for our wedding in June 2016. When I was showing the wedding coordinator what I had and how I wanted it set up, she asked me if I rented any of these things because they do many weddings and have seen some repetitive items. I looked at her and said "well, Lomas prices are ridiculous. I'm from Chicago and I can even find cheaper items there which is crazy considering howhat expensive Chicago is. So I did what I had to do." She didn't say much else after that. I mean like I said before, it's your word against theres. How are they going to prove it's not your decor? I actually flew in and stayed at another hotel for a night and had Katy's assistant meet me there. To avoid them having to come to Azul Sensatori. Then for pickup she came right to Azul and met me in the loby. At that point I didn't care because they can't go back and try to say anything once my wedding is done.

What email? And how did they know you planned on using Love and Lace for your decor? I was told from the beginning that I could bring my own decor with no problem and had no intentions of mentioning I was using an outside vendor for that either

@@Sweetness14 They didn't...i told them I was bringing my own. I was told it was sent to all karisma brides. If you haven't gotten it then good! I wouldn't worry in that case. Katy is great and keeps telling me not to worry so I'm sure it will be fine, I just wondered if anyone else has experienced the same thing and to gather some thoughts cause the email was a doozy

Sarani is an approved photographer/videographer for one of the other Karisma hotels but not Azul Sensatori. That being said I did pay an outside vendor fee. But Sarani helps you out in that area. She actually discounted us $400 off the package we chose and gave us an extra hour. I guarantee they are totally worth it!

Just some updated information for all the brides out there. We've been in discussion with the wedding department at Azul Fives (not Azul Sensatori but still another Azul & Karisma hotel) and apparently the owners of the hotels are also the owners of the photog company they have on the premises. This monopoly is why they seem to never budge on the outside vendor fee. My contact also informed me that there are no longer "approved vendors". Some companies may be grandfathered in, but still be careful of what people claim to be.

 

Do your research and choose your vendors based on their quality of service, not on the price. <3 <3 <3

WOW What a wealth of information here! Im just in the process of booking may 2017 and actually have a trip down to the resort in dec to check it out! 

Couple questions! 

 1) recommendations of photographers? I have heard the resort one is not amazing so looking outside of that

 

2) Did anyone organize a group excursion for while they are there?

 

3) honeymoon! Are people staying longer than their guests? are you switching hotels? if so where? 

 

Thanks!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
