    I rented through the wedding coordinator/Lomas. I thought it was crazy that they were trying to charge me for the chairs twice - once for ceremony and again for dinner - so I negotiated a set cost of $16 per person for the chairs. They are expensive but I didn't do any decorations for the ceremony, other than the tulle I brought, because I felt the Tiffany chairs were elegant enough on their own. It can't hurt to try and negotiate!

    Quick question did you rent your chairs through Lomas or the hotel when you got there? I want to rent the chairs but the their prices are more expensive than NY prices wanted to see if it's something you can negotiate. Our count as of now is 60. :)

      I looked back over my mom's pictures and the Blue Terrace chairs are some larger, sturdy looking wooden ones. I will attach a picture when I can get one from my mom. They are nice but very bulky.

      Thanks Melissa. Do you have your pics yet? Would love to see them. I believe we are going to do roses and maybe cymbidium orchids for centerpieces.
      Im checking out shoes. My dress should be coming in soon. I know my veil is in already. It's a short one which will be used only for the ceremony. I am going to use my reservation for a brunch I wanted to do the day after The wedding which is Easter Sunday. My wc should be getting back to me but can't see it being a problem. What size were the tables? I think we too are going to bring the bows for the chairs and overlays for the tables. Do you know what size they are?

      Did anyone rent the Tiffany chairs? I know for the ceremony they giveyou the garden chairs which I'm fine with but not sure what the chairs are at blue terrace.

      I'm sure more questions will come up. :)

        Hello Everyone!

         

        I am been without a computer for over a month and have not been able to get on here in forever!  I am sorry I have not been on here to answer questions...We are in the process of moving in into a new house so please PM me if you have any questions about Azul and I will try and get back to you as soon as possible.

         

        I wanted to share with you all my wedding video from my wedding on 5-28-11 at Azul Beach Hotel.  Our video was from Paul at Playa Weddings and his work is AMAZING! If anybody is looking for a video person...Paul is the absolute BEST and we were sooooo VERY happy with everything about him!  Let me know if you have any questions!

         

        Happy planning everyone!!!

          Hi!

           

          Bars close at 1 p.m. but they may stay open a bit later if you tip them.  Also, you could also bring the party to one of your rooms if you wanted to. We went to bed after the bar closed at 1 a.m. but I think you could order drinks to the room afterwards.  We thought that would be an issue too but by 1 a.m. we were pretty much ready to go to bed...but some groups hung out in their rooms to keep the part going.

           

          There is a dress code but they are not very strict at all.  You weren't suppose to wear sandals or shorts but people in our group had no problems there.

           

          Let me know if you have any other questions!

          We actually don't have a photographer.  We are really trying to save money and, although I know everyone says the photographer is not the place to scimp, we just couldn't justify the expense of hiring an outside vendor or flying someone in, so we opted to have a family member with a really nice camera and some amateur photography training take some formal shots.  Then we'll just ask everyone to post their photos to Flikr or something afterwards.

           

          We're having 40 guests-- glad to hear it's possible to do larger groups for meals! 


          One more question: is there a dress code for restaurants and how strictly is it enforced?

           

          Thanks, again, for the information!

            We got married on May 28th and we DID NOT need dinner reservations which was so nice!  We were so worried about this but we were able to get a table at any of the restaurants very easily! The first night most our guests were there we wanted to have a welcome dinner and we easily got a table for 20-25 people...So easy!  For our reception, we had a price reception at the Blue Terrace!  Great location and I would recommend doing a private event if you want the whole place to yourself.  Let me know if you  have any other questions!

            Do you really need dinner reservations? We want our reception at the Blue Terrace Open Air Patio, private event so we wont need the reservations. I dont think

              I have my pics but there are tons of them! Are there any specific photos that you want to see.  I just posted video too so that should be helpful.  Did you need to know the sizes of the tables and chairs at the Blue Terrace?  The sizes are different for the Blue Terrace and the Beach Reception so I want to make sure I give you the correct information.  How many people are you having?  We put 4 tables together and had 48 guests...The tables were big and our WC did not recommend this because they said there would be very little room for dancing but there was more than enough room for dancing and it worked our perfectly.

              Loved the pictures!!!  I am getting married May 19 2012. I have some questions I hope you can answer.  

              1. What package did you get?
              2. Within the package did you get to pick your bouquet/ boutonniere flowers and colors?
              3. I saw in your pics you used the large corsage for gazebo.  Were you able to pick the flowers/ colors for the corsage?
              4. Did you find the on site WC to be very helpful and listened to your ideas?
              5. Where did you have the reception?
              6. Were you satisfy with the food and service?
              7. How did they set up the tables for dinner?  Round or Rectangle?

               

              Thank you so much for your input!

              Mandi


              We got the pearl package and we picked out all the flowers with specific requests.  Just send as many photos as possible and they will copy it pretty good! I was worried about the flowers but they turned out good.  Last minute, we got a new wedding coordinator that was new to Azul Reports. I was pretty worried and they listened to my ideas but they were not as great as I would have excepted but in the end it all turned out good. We had our reception at the Blue Terrace and it was a perfect reception location! We were satisfied with the food and service...The cake was so so but we were expecting that from other reviews.  The wait staff service was great and the food from what I can remember at the wedding was good...Unfortatley, I did not eat much but the lobster and bbq ribs were great! We had them put 4 tables together...There is no option for round tables at the blue Terrace. Let me know if you have any other questions!

              Thanks again!
               

              We would sell our pink table runners and chair bows...They would be $1 each.  PM me if you are interested.  I just posted a video and can send you additional photos if you want...Just let me know what types of photos you want to see because I have a TON of  photos!  The rooms were great!  They upgraded us to the wedding suite which was a very nice room.  Our DJ was great too...DJ Temo! Let me know if you have any other questions or need anything else!
