    Hi!

     

    So sorry for not responding sooner!  I have been super busy! We live in Wash Park...Very cool that you live in Colorado also! Have you picked out your dress yet? I got mine at Anne Be and went to over every dress store in Colorado to find the perfect one. It took me 6 months to find one! Have you been to Azul Beach Hotel before?  We did a site visit back in August and feel in love with the resort!

     

    What decisons have you made so far?  Who is your photographer? Have you booked rooms yet?

     

    Here is our wedding website.

    Hi Melissa (and other Azul brides)! I am so glad that you've decided to make a post for us. I am getting married at the Azul Beach Resort on December 17, 2011. My fiance and I live in Colorado- I live downtown and he lives in Louisville (incase anyone else is local).

     

    So far, I have made two style boards that I am hoping to use to design the wedding/weekend (see below).

     



    I am getting married at Azul Beach on October 22, 2011!  I am very excited, but have run into quite a few bumps along the way.  I had read on the website it was a one wedding a day resort, and then after I had booked and put a deposit, I was told there was another wedding looking for the same day and time as mine

     Hi Everyone,

    We just out our Save the Dates!!

    I am getting married at Azul Beach on December 17, 2011. I was having a hard time deciding how to "market" our wedding to our guests, because I know that some will feel bad that they can't afford Mexico. We decided to do it like a "Choose your own adventure" (Like the old books), with two choices; one- the wedding in Mexico and two; the at-home reception. I Love how it turned out! It is pretty goofy and fun, like our personalities, and it was fun coming up with the concept. I found Julie Knight on ETSY - she was AWESOME to work with- she is found at BTownBetty on Etsy.comSTD 004.JPG

      Melfabik-we are expecting hopefully about 20 people plus B & G (and our 2 kiddos of course).  I am so interested in the terrace! I haven't heard about that yet, when will it be ready?  I too am from Colorado (I sent you a PM, I think you and my fiance went to school together!)  What a small world-3 of us Colorado girls getting married at Azul Beach!

        Hi!

         

        I am not sure when the terrace will be done...It was suppose to be done for my wedding but it looks like it won't.  They will not tell you exactly when it will be done but ask your wedding coordinator about it so they know you are interested in it.

         

        Such a small world!  I grew up with Mike (we used to call him Mikey

            Wow!  That is so funny you know Mikey!  Most people still call him Mikey, and I do too usually, but often he is "Dad" instead

             

            I was going to have a photobooth and have my guests put their pictures in a book and sign next to it.  I am thinking more now that I want to take our engagement photos and make a book online with space for the guests to sign.  I don't really know though, I was really set on the photobooth, but now that we are going to Mexico, I don't think that will be happening!  Oh well, save it for a birthday party instead!

              Hi Ladies!  So happy there is a thread just for the AB as it can get pretty hairy in the Sensatori thread.  Love the creativity in this thread - you guys are awesome!

               

              I am hoping to book the AB in the next few days for end of November 2011, but we had our hearts set on Villa Carola as our wedding site but they are quoting rack rates which are outrageous and could push us to our number 2 choice.

               

              We went on a site visit 2 week-ends ago and the food was great, service seemed impeccable, however they were not very flexible.  We think it is a beautiful place to stay and get married, but I would be prepared that you have to follow their prescribed rules and set up pretty well or pay extra for every little detail.  They are quoting an $800 per vendor fee for any vendor you use that is not on their list - which is  the highest we have seen, plus when you go to the Lomas website, the prices for all the wedding particulars are very high.

               

              That said, my FI and I are still hoping we can get the Villa at the right price and if so, we will then lock n' load and invite our guests to book their 20-30 rooms.

              I will provide a full site visit, once we firm up our details as we visited MANY places like Ceiba Del Mar, Dreams Tulum, Ana Y Jose, Be Tulum, Le Reve, La Amada, Grand Velas, La Essencia, Al Cielo, La Zebra, Now Sapphire as well as Azul Beach.

               

              Let's help each other out :)

                  Alright ladies, Booked at AB for Novemebr 24th, 2011. Hope the trouble you were experiencing has all been resolved. How's the planning going? Now that contracts are almost signed, I have toget to the real work, Invitations, wedding site, theme,decor...So glad there are resources like this site to lend a helping hand! Question: I am being quoted 800$ per ouside vendor I plan on using...I have read some posts where people are quoting 500$. do you guys know if ere is any wiggle room in this? Also, is it true if you buy your bridesmaids buoquets at a local flower market day before the wedding, they will charge you??? What have you all experienced? Thanks Marianne

                    Melissa - your wedding is coming up soon! Can't wait to hear all about it and see pictures. I'm sure it'll be fabulous! What are you doing for your flowers? Marianne- I believe it's when you sign your contract which let's you know how much you have to pay per additional vendor fee. I thought it was crazy they should just let you pay once and you should be able to use your own vendors but it doesn't work that :(. I had to see what was really important. So far it's photographer, DJ and hair/makeup (have to book them soon) that are not in the recommended vendor list. I still have less than a year to go so we'll see what else we'll add. I'm working on invitations now. Hopefully they'll be sent out in the first week of June. Once that's done I am going to look into flowers/centerpieces. I'm not sure about the flower situation in regards to bouquets. Are the AB brides's names all start with "M" Is anyone switching to another of the other Karisma hotels for their honeymoon? I think we're going to have a mini moon and maybe in 6 months do something different. Happy planning ladies!! Maritza

                      My fee's for outside vendors were 500, but i believe it has to do with when you signed your contract.  Most of my planning is done, we really just need to pick out our songs and invitation wording. I would try to plan ahead as much as possible, becuase I have noticed that they keep jacking up the prices!  Center pieces went up since i booked!

                       

                      Melissa,

                       

                      I can't wait to hear all about your wedding!  You must be so excited!
