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!!!

    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Well this a kind of situation mostly, It will be awkward situation for your parents, They are mature enough and parent don't want to spoil the marriage of their children. Don't worry everything gonna be fine. just have good bottle of wine for them🍷
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
