so we did a thing  - we got married yesterday at the courthouse. just us and 2 very close friends. it was everything my FH could have ever wanted, it was lovely and simple - perfect. We leave on Monday for our Mexico wedding celebration set for Friday May 11. We have 60 amazing friends and family traveling to celebrate with us. I'm really glad we decided to get hitched stateside first, it takes a ton of pressure off the day in Mexico. 
bags are almost packed and the hubby and I are ready to spend 10 days on the beach, relaxing with friends and reconnecting before we come back to our crazy lives. 
Stay strong DW brides - it all comes together  


How did it all go while there@tandagethitched

Can't wait for your review @TandAGetHitched! Also dying to know if you ever got those mysterious resort credits. :)

Yes, I need to get a review written! Overall - AMAZING resort, staff, wedding, experience! We had 1 small small hiccup with airport transfers, otherwise all was AWESOME! I’ll get something written in a few weeks, once we have our photos back!

and yes! We did get our resort / wedding credits! We actually got them about 10 days after the wedding - pretty quick! Some of the discounts (wedding package, spa, dinner & cocktail) were applied before we paid the final balance. The airfare and room credits were credited back to my AMEX a few days after we checked out. 

 

We ended up getting about $7500 in credits/discounts:

$950 discount on always and forever package

$500 hair & makeup credit - gift from our TA

$550 discount for cocktail hour

$1100 discount for dinner

$1000 for airfare promotion with our TA

$3300 for #of rooms/nights our group of 60 had booked

Wow! So glad those credits worked smoothly- that's really awesome to know! Can't argue with a 10 turn around time either! We're looking at 100 people at the moment, so I'm excited to see such big numbers in credits lol.

Cannot wait for your review- love how awesome it sounds! I finally have my ring so I can start the "real" planning lol. 

 

What TA did you use?

We use Kate’s Travel (katestravel.com) she was AMAZING! Our guests loved working with her and she got us some great rates. 
 
Here’s the website she created for us: http://tomandamandagetmarried.com/



Awesome. For my wedding last year i got all my credits as well. I would recommend that resort for anyone planning a destination wedding. And I def would tell all brides to use a travel agent as well. I used Destination Weddings and they were great

ok- wedding review is posted!!

https://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/reviews/r/5863-wedding-was-a-blast/

Our Photographer sent us a message earlier this week letting use know our wedding photos will be done around July 15th so I'll be sure to post a few photos and a review of our photographer - Moments That Matter! they were a really fun couple to shoot with, just can't wait to see the final results! 

The biggest piece of advice I can give for planning a wedding at Azul or any Karisma property - PATIENCE! planning a wedding via email and a few phone calls may be stressful, but these folks at Karisma are pros! Don't expect a response same day, most responses were 1-3 days, and if you go into the planning process knowing that, you'll be a little less stressed! Overall, the Karisma teams are experts and will execute your vision wonderfully - trust them!!

Happy Planning!

Hi ladies!  I'm getting married at the resort in June and stressing about hair/makeup.  I will have 4 bridesmaids, 2 moms and myself.  I did a trial updo when we visited in December and it went horrible.  Looking for suggested stylists that you have used at the resort salon and liked and any tips!  Thanks in advance!!!

    • Hello friends, We are pleased to announce the launch of our brand new website!

Here's the link: https://theweddingfactoryandco.com/ https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=514815465723368&id=438996693305246&sfnsn=mo Also on Instagram @theweddingfactoryandco  I hope you find our website with a fresh look, easy to access and we also wish to establish this portal as a source of information for those who visit our site... Thank you  VERONICA MIRANDA   
    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to. 
    • Hello Everyone! Thank you for sharing your experience about Tom Moks. We have read it very careful before we booked. But at the end of the day we were very happy with his service. I consider myself as a difficult customer but this time everything went just smooth. We had our wedding in Sayulita, close to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. He came on time, he stayed with us late night.  After all we had to wait like 3weeks to receive the pictures, but we LOVED them. He sent us more pictures that he promises in the contract, and in 85% they were perfect.  The other 15% we asked him to edit once more, and he did it, without hesitation. This is his official Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tom_moks_photography/  Personally I would buy his service again, but the decision is always yours. E.    
    • Hello!  We are getting married at El Dorado Royale in August 2019.  We are trying to decide between La Salon Royale and Los Tucanes for the reception. I vastly prefer Tucanes but I’m worried everyone will be hot and miserable since I’ve been told it doesn’t have AC. Does anyone have experience with either location? If Tucanes, is there a way to get fans or cool it down? If La Salon, I’d love tips on how to decorate inexpensively so that it doesn’t look so “ballroom”-y. Thank you very much!
