      Are you having quite a big wedding at the resort? At the moment it is close family who are travelling with us from the UK. Have you been to the Azul before? We have two little boys and the hotel seems quite personal and family friendly! The reviews all seem very positive! Are you having your wedding on the beach or in the gazebo?

      Best Wishes,
      Lyn x

        Here is a video of a wedding shot at Azul Beach Club. Although Azul Beach is a Karisma hotel, they seem to be more leniant on the "outside vendor" policy. I have another wedding booked there in January. The wedding coordinator there appreciates quality and happy clients.

          Hi Everyone,

          Karisma wedding coordinators are almost impossible to get in touch with. I am left feeling in the dark about the details - with only three months to go. Looking for any advice as to available options for wedding/reception at Azul Beach Hotel. I appreciate any help based on personal experience - the most reliable kind!

          We were planning a private beach reception - I love the photos of the dance floor in the sand. My concern is wind (guests may be chilly) and Karisma policy - in bad weather you are forced into one of the all inclusive restaurants along with other hotel guests, with NO refund. Is this true?

          What options are available at the resort for a private reception. I have read that wave lounge is an option - is it nice? What is the extra cost of this?

          What about a DJ? The cost is $1300 and he gets a 15 minute break for every hour worked. Is it worth it or should we stick to the ipod and speakers? What are availble options for speakers - do they provide? At what cost?

          Any other issues I should know about?

          Thanks everyone - looking very forward to some much needed advice!

            Help!! Our wedding coordinator Fabio at Azul has never responded to any emails. Our TA is not much better.

            I am left feeling in the dark about the details - with only three months to go. What are the reception options at Azul Beach Hotel?

            We were planning a private beach reception - but are unsure or weather. karisma policy online is to move poor weather outdoor events into one of the all inclusive restaurants along with other hotel guests, with NO refund. Is this true?

            What options are available at the resort for a private reception. I have read that wave lounge is an option - is it nice? Anything else I should know? What is the extra cost of this?

            What about a DJ? The cost is $1300 and he gets a 15 minute break for every hour worked. Is it worth it or should we stick to the ipod and speakers? What are availble options for speakers - do they provide? At what cost?

            Sincerely yours,
            in the dark azul bride to be!

                I'm getting married there in 2 months, Fabio was my WC but after too many problems with him, I got reassigned to Nancy who's not any better at all. I'm having a private cocktail party at the wave lounge and a private dinner reception at the terrace. That's all I know as of now, because they NEVER answer any of my questions, and I'm leaving in exactly 60 days!

                  Ahhh you're about a month before me. I got reassigned Nancy as well (Fabio sucks) and she has been better. Mind you, I think my TA had a very nasty conversation with Fabio's boss - It had been over a month and we still had not heard from Fabio. Nancy emailed me that day. lovefreddy (above) has been very, very helpful and says not to worry. She went through the same thing and her wedding was beautiful. Carolina the onsite wedding coordinator is very good and they can arrange all details in about 2 hrs - so don't stress. It sounds as though it will all be looked after. Did you receive the spreadsheet from nancy? I had to ask because lovefreddy clued me in. Also, I have Nancy's phone number if you need it. PM me for details if you like.

                    I just did a sit visit there last week. All the locations at the resort are amazing so I agree with these girls...try not to stress too much.

                    Carolina is amazing so I am sure she will do everything once you get down there.

                    If you need any pictures of the various locations...I have all my pictures from the site visit and my FI took pictures of all the options and was a total paparazzi. :)

                    PM me if you want any of the pictures with your email address.

                    This place is amzing your wedding will be great!

                      With 13 days before we leave I'm planning the seating arrangements and how I want the reception to look, the only problem is that I've never been down to Azul. Fabio sent me a sketch of the terrace layout, but it is not to scale, and after I tried my best to layout the tables, and the cake table, and the buffet tables, everything looks to crammed and with no much space for dancing.

                      Do you think that the terrace is too small to set up 5 tables about 6'x6' seating 8 person each, plus a sweetheart table, the cake table, the buffet tables with area for serving the food plus space for dancing? What about the private bar? Is that something that they set inside the terrace or how does that work? Do you have any suggestions of where I can put the buffet area for people to go and get their food? I would ask Nancy but she'll probably take 8 days to reply and I would really like to know now.

                      Thanks
