Hi there, I'm new to this site but have been reading some of the latest posts on this thread and the other Azul Sensatori threads. We are all booked and set to marry May 7th, 2015 with our ceremony on the beach and our reception at Plaza Zavas. All of the links to the DIY ideas have been so helpful- I'm particularly thinking of bringing our own sheers for the ceremony as the cost is pretty high even for the simple white sheers. My question for everyone who has gotten married on the beach and brought their own sheers (@Ydolem) is concerning measurements. How much fabric did you need to order, and did you have any issues with it being wrinkled at all once you brought it? Did they charge you a set up fee for that?
Secondly, we have had about 33 people respond as attending, including our wedding party (6 bridesmaids, 7 groomsmen and my son, the ring bearer). We are not expecting many more "yes's" at this point-10 max. For the reception, We plan on having bride and groom and one table with our groomsmen at a table to our left and the bridesmaids at a table to our right and then 8 people per table at the remaining tables for our guests. It doesn't look like we'll have more than 6 tables at this point. For anyone with experience, will we have enough people/tables to really fill the Plaza Zavas space without it looking empty? We're starting to wonder if we picked the wrong reception area for our number of people. Again, not expecting more than 40-45 give or take at this point.
Btw, we chose the Pure Glamour package for our reception but are going to do our own center pieces! Thinking of using the bridesmaids bouquets as centerpiece's with DIY seashells candles and a starfish
so glad I found this site, already have found ways to save money and get creative with all the advice I've read!
