Hey... So just wanted to let u know I did end up bringing my own decorations. I purchased chair bows, table runners, peacock feathers, a mr. And mrs. sign and some votive candles. (Also brought in my own fresh flowers from maya floral that only needed to be placed on the tables) I paid $250 to use my own items. I was able to fit all my decorations into one suitcase and we were able to check te bag for free (first checked bag was free. We had purchased a seat for my 2yr old daughter. We checked the bag under her and carried on her actual suitcase) I was also able to reuse some if the items at a birthday party.

When I did the math it was still cheaper to buy and bring my own than to rent from lomas. I may even try to resell some of the stuff online. So crunch some numbers and see what works best for you. Good luck. Azul planning is the worst!

I put up a huge fight with flowers. I sent my wc pictures of center pieces I liked and was quoted $350. Wayyyyy too much. I explored the option of bringing my own fake flowers and planned on doing that til I came across maya floral. I paid $65 or $75 for center pieces... I forget.

Originally I had told the wc I was going to have the flowers delivered to the first gate. There are 2 entrances into azul. First one off the main road (security gate) then the main entrance. My husband and groomsmen were going to take a cab to e gate and pick up the flowers. When I got on site at azul and met with the on site ppl they said the flowers could be delivered to the main entrance.

The day of the wedding my hubs had to grab the flowers from the lobby and take them to the wedding offices. I chose centerpieces that came fully assembled. Nothing crazy, so that the on site ppl only had to place them on the tables. I had one large arrangement and 2 small on each table (2 long tables only) my bouquet served as the centerpiece for the sweetheart table :)

I did purchase 2 small hanging arrangements from lomas. Definitely regret that. I shoulda saved the money or had maya floral make them. The lomas flowers were cheap and ugly in comparison to the other flowers
Here are some pics of my flowers:

@talicea7812
Do you mind sending the pictures to my email jb2b@live.com? My wedding is November 8th and at this time paned to bring my own centerpieces. But if I could get them already assembled there that would be better.

So I received a reply from my WC finally with my flower quotes from Lomas and honestly I don't even know how to read their quotes because one of the pics I sent is cut off and I don't know if their replies are for the pic above or below. Looks like I will be getting quotes from Maya Floral or going the fake route.

@talicea7812 hoping you can clear things up for me! I wanted to do our reception at Chill Terrace and my WC keeps saying if we do a plated or family style dinner there it is 30 ppl max and you eat on the terrace and the dancing can take place inside (which I thought this whole restaurant was open air) so I asked for clarification and she sent me these pics.....what is she talking about dancing taking place inside the restaurant? I didn't want to be seperated from our tables I wanted it all to be in one room. She said these are pics of the inside. I know you had your reception there so I was hoping you could help clear it up. Is there a separate bar outside for us or do we use the one inside the restaurant and is it closed down to other hotel guests inside as well as the terrace?

Chil is half enclosed...half open air.

When u enter the restaurant the bar is on your right. On the other side of the bar is glass separating the indoor/ outdoor areas. There sit a separate bar on the terrace.

As for dinner... I had a plated menu with 25 guests. Two long tables, a sweetheart table & a Table for sound equipment/ iPod hook up.

There was plenty of room in the center for dancing. If you have more tables than I had there won't be room on the terrace.

As for the bar being in the other room...totally not a big deal. The terrace would be to crowded with it out there. Keeps a nice flow. Plus most of the time my drinks were brought to me


I will try to attach a pathetically drawn example of the restaurant/ my wedding layout.

@talicea7812 that actually helps a lot thank you! The bar inside the restaurant doesn't bother me but i don't like the idea of the dancing being in a separate room but this should work. Did you have people sitting on both sides of the table or everyone facing the dance floor? Did they charge you extra for the tables to be like this? We are having right around 30 I think so unless people drop out she said I can't have the BBQ deluxe package for over 25 ppl at that location. Blah blah you know how the offsite WC are. How is the pregnancy and married life going? When are you due?

    I am looking into options for hair and makeup, and was considering hiring an outside makeup artist. However, I do not want to pay the $800 outside vendor fee. Has any has experience with this at Azul Beach? Are there ways around it, besides booking a room for the makeup artist?
