So far, i'm extremely impressed. The wedding coordinators are so hands on and extremely helpful and accommodating - a much different experience than the Riviera. One thing you may not know is all the restaurants are al a carte - which means no buffets! I will post a review and pics when we get back.

 

Helo....

 

I am in the process of booking my wedding for Dec. 2nd.....leaving Nov 28 also....so we might cross paths :)

...we have 4 kids between us and I am so excited for them to have this experience with us! 

I have been to El Dorado Royal and it was Amazing....I am hoping the FIVES is too.

BajaBride - I got married in May of 2012 at Azul Fives and it was perfect! The cost varies greatly based upon your upgrades. You can keep it very minimal, or go extremely lavishly....or somewhere in the middle. I think our basic package was around $1500, but we hosted a private rehearsal dinner, private cocktail hour, and private reception for 60 guests, so our cost was much higher than the basic package. Good luck planning!

 

Quackdoc - We talked about doing the Mexican Donkey, but decided against it because we were already over budget..I bet it will be a blast! I'm not sure about decorations on the tables at Flavours, but I would guess that you would be allowed if you are the only ones in the restaurant that night.  Just ask the wedding planners before you pack a bunch of decorations in your suitcase. :-)

Hi adilev,

 

I was married at Azul Fives on August 4 of this year. We had about 50 guests and everything was perfect!

 

Wedding Coordinators: The crew was fantastic! Arturo was our onsite coordinator and Andres and Odette were our planners from Lomas Travel. The meeting with the wedding coordinator and crew before the wedding was very organized. On the day of the wedding, Andres and Arturo were awesome: they constantly updated me on what was going on and on what was about to happen.

 

Ceremony: On the day of the wedding, it rained a couple of times in the morning and afternoon so it seemed like we wouldnâ€t be able to have a beach ceremony. The hotel has a backup location for ceremonies in case it rains, but fortunately,  the sky cleared up in time for our ceremony and we were able to have it on the beach after all. For our photographer, we chose Caribe Photo. The pictures of our ceremony and with our guests (after the ceremony) were beautiful!

Cocktail Hour: Our cocktail hour was in the garden and for hors dâ€oeuvres we ordered the Mexican Fiesta Cocktail, breaded shrimp tacos, and mahi mahi tacos. Since my hubby and I were taking pictures during most of the cocktail hour, I was able to try only the breaded shrimp and mahi mahi tacos, both of which were delicious! Our guests enjoyed the mariachi band and raved about the mahi mahi tacos!

Reception: We decided to have our reception inside the banquet hall, since it was air-conditioned. I bought vases and flowers from downtown Playa del Carmen and the wedding coordinators gladly set them up. Since we assigned seating, we also brought our own table name placards and stands, which the team set up as well.

Food: We ordered the Family Style Dinner. For the most part, everything that I tried was very good…especially the fruit tartlet and chocolate cake for dessert! There was so much food and they came in such big portions that we (including our guests) werenâ€t even able to try all of the main courses. Our guests said that the food was really good as well.

 

Cake: We ordered the white cake and it was very moist and delicious!

 

Photo Booth: The photo booth through Lomas isnâ€t a booth, but itâ€s actually a backdrop so that we were able to fit a bunch of people in each picture. There were a lot of fun props and a good variety, which made for some funny pictures. The staff was very friendly so we highly recommend them!

 

DJ/MC: We went with the DJ thatâ€s available through Lomas. We provided so many songs that I donâ€t think they had enough time to play them all, but the mixing was good.

    • We just had a destination wedding and both my girls were flower girls!  The dresses from princessly were perfect!  Lots of complements! Would definitely recommend them!  Very reasonably priced.
    • I just want to say I got the best flower girl dresses on Princessly. It was very reasonably priced, they customized the dress to fit my daughter and it came within a couple of weeks. My daughter looked amazing and so did her cousin (who also wore the dress). The company was so easy to deal with and I’m so happy I chose them! Here are a couple of pics! 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
