Welcome Nikki! You will LOVE Aventura!! A lot of great ideas/advice on this thread, so definitely start from page 1 and work your way through the thread - it's definitely helped me with the planning and answered a lot of my questions!

Any hints or tips would be great!

Hey Ashley!!  To be honest, my husband, myself and all of our guests didn't mind at ALL that there wasn't a beach.  You can still relax in lounge chairs and look out onto the ocean, you just can't feel the sand between your toes and jump through the waves. If you really want some sand time, you aren't too far from Playacar Palace -- which makes for a nice day trip.  I thought the food there was great!!  I don't remember having one thing (besides room service unfortunately) that I didn't love!

 

Hope that helps!

Good question!!  I was just about to ask the same thing!  My family does a beach vacation at least once a year and this is something i was worried about also!  I read that the beach like area is more like pebles then sand... Is this true???  I really love sand and im just worried that some of my guest are going to wonder why they are at a beach wedding with no beach....  feedback.gif

MissNikki, to be honest, when we went to visit Aventura, the 'beach' was definitely PEBBLES and not sand. This was something that I was a bit disappointed with. The pictures are very deceiving and make it look like sand; however, it is not soft...it's more coarse and kind of hurt my feet to walk on. HOWEVER, with that being said, Aventura has so many other great and positive things about the resort so we decided to get married there anyway. The pros definitely outweighed the cons!!! Also, Playacar Palace is about 15 minutes away and has an awesome beach, so you could take day trips there. We considered getting married at Playacar instead, but it didn't have many of the things we were looking for in a resort (besides the beach being beautiful!) The pools at Aventura are awesome too so that helps with the 'no beach' situationcheesy.gif

MissNikki and Ashley, I agree with what the other ladies have said - at first, I was concerned with ASP not having a beach and we were planning on having our wedding at Playacar. But after doing our site visit, as much as we loved the beach at Playacar - we found the venue space at ASP to be better (in our opinion). The guests will be a short shuttle ride for a day trip to Playacar's beach, but ASP is a GORGEOUS property, with lots to do, and great venues to choose from. Good luck with whatever you decide!

Hi ladies!! I am currently at Sun Palace soaking up some sun. 

 

My brief review....everything was amazing!! Cristina did a great job of setting it all up the way I wanted. I got so so lucky. I rained Thursday and poured Saturday but was absolutely beautiful on Friday!! I road up to the coba gazebo in the carriage with my mom, she walked me down the path, the my dad walked me down the aisle. The whole ceremony was beautiful. Food was delicious and the reception was a blast. I just got the DVD delivered last night. I was mostly happy with it. David and the entire bridal party danced down the aisle and the videographer got most of it but when he edited it he threw in a repeat piece of video that didn't go with the song playing. That was the only bad part. Oh and the fact I look 20 lbs heavier on camera. :( so weird but oh well. ASP was beautiful just like everyone has said. I can't wait to go back. Very sad it will be Hard Rock. I think it's going to ruin its charm. Oh and La Luna is AMAZING!!!

 

Anyways...we fly home tmrw and I don't go back to work til Tuesday so I have plenty of time to post pics, write reviews, etc.

​

HAVE A VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!!

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
