    Wow!! Classic photographs. You've got a great sense of style. You've given a feel that planning a wedding is not as tough as it is considered to be!

          Resort

          Initially my FI was hesitant about a DW- I persisted on convincing him this was the way to go (slightly selfish of me as the only part of my wedding I had ever dreamed about was that it would be on a beach somewhere)!  Funny enough, at the outset, we were both anti Mexico because of the bad hype it had recently received; we were thinking probably Dominican Republic- I had visited previously twice with my family and had loved it.  But after doing some research and presentation of some lovely options by our TA, we realized we could have a 5 star wedding in Mexico with the money we were willing to spend, but this would only translate to a 3.5/4 star in the DR.

           

          Once we were presented with the Karisma line of resorts, we were sold! We loved the Gourmet Inclusive concept, and since there was a possibility of some children coming to the wedding, Azul Sensatori seemed the right pick for us!  Our other requirements for our resort were one that had access to a Catholic chapel in the vicinity as well as a decent spa. In the end we ended up with 30 adult guests, but the AS ended up being a perfect location for our group, and everyone had a fantastic week.

           

                                               

           

          I posted a review of our wedding week in the Azul Sensatori brides’ thread.  Here is a link if anyone else is interested in reading it…http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/23412/azul-sensatori-brides-post-here/15980

          Love your engagement pics!

            I wanted little off the shoulder cap sleeves for my dress for at least the ceremony, and the wonderful seamstress at Nouvelle Bridal made me detachable ones!  I didn’t like the belt that came with the dress, so I bought one with Swarovski crystal detailing from the bridal shop.

             

              

             

            I bought my wedding dress hanger from Kelly Jonsson on Etsy (

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

            Love your dress and your bridesmaid dresses...such a soft and complimentary colour!

              At each table we placed a wedding I Spy card.  I bought the file from Lindsey Shepherd from Etsy (

               

               

               

              what a great idea with the I Spy game.  My sister suggested the disposable camera idea and then later incorporated pics that each guest took into their own personalized album.  This is a good way of still doing that but containing the outrageous pics that some might take. LOL!

                Good job on all the planning.  Your wedding has very unique and personalized touches which can be hard to do for a destination wedding. Congrats!
