My name is Issey, I got engaged November 14th, 2013 - a week before my birthday . I will be getting married April 16, 2014 at the Azul Fives Resort. I am hoping to meet more Azul Fives brides to discuss wedding plans, share ideas and pretty much just help each other. I found it really helpful reading some topics in this forum which have helped so much with my planning; but i just have not seen one dedicated to AZUL FIVES BRIDES! Woohoo!
Here is a picture of my ring. I chose a yellow sapphire because my fiance, Mike and I are Sagittarian. I will continue to post my plans etc in hopes that more Azul Fives Brides will follow suit.
At Start of Wedding Preparation
So the first thing I did after we decided on a date and place was research resorts in Riviera Maya, Mexico. I fell in love with the Karisma Hotel group just from looking at their wedding page ( I truly believe after this happened, that the image you put out is important for businesses - I just hope they will provide us as good a service as their website looks)
Second thing I did was register with destination weddings Travel (www.destinationweddings.com) to sort out room costs and also reserve our wedding date with Azul Fives.
It worked out to be $687 per person in a double deluxe room. I was also advised to attend the Karisma webinar by Pam, my wedding specialist at Destination Wedding Travel and was given 20% discount on food and drinks for my private event and a free room upgrade. I am hoping I can use the Sky Deck for my reception but booked the One room suite for my Fiance and I ($1882 each for 7 days) - keeping my fingers crossed that we will get this upgrade
My Wedding Colors
- Lime Green
Using Photoshop, I created the shade of these colors that I wanted to ensure all my vendors used the exact color for the wedding using the HTML color code - see attached ( it has been a guide for me as well to ensure I am selecting the right color shade although as I have come to realize, color shades can still be tricky.
