well, the wedding seasons are cyclical.  most of the brides for 2011 have gotten married but you will most likely see a new "class" of brides coming on in the next few months.  we have some november brides about to get married but like i said, the majority got married may/june/july and october.

 

also, just last week the area was evacuated for hurricane rina.

We got engaged in June and since then so many people have asked how the plans are going. We decided to enjoy the engagement and not start planning until we visit the resort. Can't believe its finally here.

 

@AmyG - Definitely takeing a lot of pictures. I will post a full review, with pictures and answers to all the questions. cheesy.gif

Hi everybody! Our trip to Now Sapphire was fantastic. Let's start with the Good...I truly loved the feel of the resort. It was updated but not overly updated, so it still had that authentic Mexico feel. The people working there were amazing! The staff was helpful and friendly. We stayed as Preferred Guests. The perks were nice but totally not necessary. We spent a day by the beautiful pool, a day at the beach, a day on an excursion, and one full day looking at multiple resorts for the wedding. Even though I loved Now Sapphire (from the reviews and pictures online), I wanted to make sure that I considered all my options.

 

We visited several resorts before our scheduled appointment with Anel. During on of the resort inspections, my finance and I fell in love with the Azul Sensatori. So we have decided to have our wedding there. The resort is newer and more modern. But it was the food that changed our minds. The food at Now Sapphire was not as good as we hoped. I have been to 2 other all inclusive hotels and know that the food is different from the US. So I did not go in with super high expectations. However, my fiance and I are huge foodies. I tried my best to keep an open mind (after my first meal was not very good) because we did love everything else about the resort. But after the third bad meal...we knew we could not bring our family and friends here. We cancelled our meeting with Anel so I did not go through my list of questions.

 

I hope that this not deter any of you from having your wedding at Now Sapphire. It is beautiful resort with wonderful people. In fact we saw two weddings and both looked great. I wish all you brides a great wedding!

I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the food at Now Sapphire.  My fiance is a foodie, and he will be disappointed, but we're past the point of no return now.  Azul Sensatori was #2 on my list when I was deciding, but I had a lot of trouble letting go of my attachment to AM Resorts.  Do you have any other comments about Now Sapphire?  Can you describe what was bad about the food?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
