We have secured our wedding date at Azul in April but I am wondering how soon did everyone start deciding things like the reception space, food,flower, ect.? April feels pretty far off but I don't want to be behind the curve either.

Thanks!
You should reserve your reception location as soon as possible so that it doesn't get booked by someone else. As far as food and flowers are concerned you can wait a little longer because that stuff can be changed. I changed my menus and flowers the day before my final payment was due.

my wedding is only 3 months out but i've been able to convince wc to give me things that are now offered for newly booked guests (i.e. free cocktail reception) so perhaps I can get a few more extras. :) Doesn't hurt to try, right?
Just sent to you too :) I'm all about the freebies...I'm bummed that I wasn't able to get the free cocktail reception...but I'm more than a year and a half out...I'm hoping there are some nifty deals I can negotiate by then.

We did oot bags. we got everyone a travel mug and filled it up with stuff. Everyone got soft soap, chap stick, cookies with m&m written on it (matt and meghan) candied cashews, jelly beans, and hand sanitizer. Girls got a fabric beach bag with a fan, and guys got a cigar.

First off I should say that that there has beena lot of great back and forth happening here and looks like a lot of fun is going on. I have enjoyed seeing Lindz and BigBop's BD pics and Meghan, I loved looking at your wedding pics on facebook. Looks like you guys had a great time. You got married at AB, right?

OK....so sorry to cut that short but I just recieved an email from my TA that my WC has been replaced. So not that I was the biggest fan of my AS WC (Tiffany) but now I am worried that everything that she's confirmed is going to get lost somewhere and I will have to spend hours digging through emails and such to catch my new WC or prove that I deals that I've been able to negotitate with Tiffany.

Maybe I am freaking for no reason, but you ladies all know how it is. I am sure one of you will tell me not to worry and that's exactly why I came here first! So thanks in advance!

I also wanted to see if anyone has worked with or is working with my new WC, Carolina and what your thoughts are about her. Please share if you don't mind.

Thanks so much!
We got married married at sensatori.

Honestly, keep checking back here and see what the other girls are getting and ask your TA. Honestly when I started I had to get at least the silver ($2500) package to upgrade to the Sky Deck and then I saw girls who booked after me only had to book the Pearl and upgrade. I asked and they changed it for me. My WC told me I wasn't eligible for the free cocktail party ($500 value) and technically I booked 2 days before the promotion started by I asked my TA and she got it for me. All in all asking for those things saved me nearly $2000.

Thanks for sending me the info. Now I see the Sweet Free Wedding Package is being offered again. Hopefully they will let me downgrade to that one. Savings of another $950. Probably won't happen but doesn't hurt to ask!

Thanks for letting me know. I don't know why I thought AB. Sorry I am a little overwhelmed as of late and I guess I can't keep things straight.

So did you have your reception at Plaza Zavaz too?That's where I am having mine....for whatever reason in the pic that my old WC sent to me the thatched roof gazebo looked so much larger than the ones I have been seeing in other people's picks. I am having about 70 guests. Do you think that there will be enough space there? Especially cause I am going to have a dancing group. I need to make sure there's enough space for everyone to get down. :)

This happened to me too. About a month after I booked I was glued to trip advisor and nearly had a heart attack. fryingpan.gif

But then I checked in my TA and she let me know most of those bad reviews were from when AS forst opened and hadn't figured everything out yet. Plus every AS married lady on this forum just raves and raves. Their word means much more to me than some stinky person I've never met before who probably has a bad attitude about everything anyway.

Don't stress it, you're booked and all will be lovely. :)

I finally had to stop reading them and just read what people were saying here....I think I'm going to be happier and less freaked that way. The brides so far (at least what I've read) had nothing but great things to say..and if you can make a bride happy...you can make pretty much anybody happysmile36.gif

Yay! Congrats! You do have some time but I am sure that it will fly by. If I were you I would nail down your locations at the resort right away. They can do 2 weddings per day at the resort and as much as I am sure you want the other bride to have her fav place for the ceremony, reception, etc...I am sure you care about your a little more. :)

As far as flowers and food go. I think it is good to look and think about what you want so you can budget. (If that's a priority for you.) Also, doesn't hurt to start researching flowers and decor you might want. Your WC will have to get quotes on all of that from Lomas and believe me when I tell you some of the quotes that they come back with a ridiculous. So you may have to alter what you want or send other photos for more and, hopefully, more affordable quotes.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
