THIRD DAY (WEDDING EVE)
The rest of the guests arrived on Friday. It was just another low key day filled with drinks, friends and good times. My favorite spot at the resort was definitely the Aquanox bar! Part of it was swim up while the other side served people on dry land. The area was surrounded with tables and swinging beds. It was an awesome spot to hang out.
At night we had dinner at the Blue International restaurant. We dubbed this our "rehearsal dinner" even tho we did not rehearse. It was a semi private event so the tables were set up in a U shape. There was a pre-set menu. Soup and Salad were the same for everyone...2 entrée selections (chicken or fish) and the same desert. Again...my picky eaterness (I know its not a word) came into play. I didn't like the soup or salad. I requested the garlic cream soup that was on the regular blue menu and it was awesome!!! im a big fan of garlic so it was perfect. Dinner as usual was really good. I wish I could remember exactly what the dish was called.
That night my FI and I decided to sleep apart and not see each other until I was walking down the aisle. I went to bed early with my daughter and he stayed out and had a guys night at the Tequila Lounge. The bar there is very dark...red, with an ice top bar. Its the bar open the latest on the resort,
SOMETHING ELSE WORTH MENTIONING...
I chose a child friendly resort bc several of our friends have kids. Unfortunately, none of them came so my daughter was alone with the adults for the week. Azul has a childrens playroom called "azulitos." The room was seriously amazing! My girl loved it and spent a lot of time in there. The room is sponsored by Fisher Price and is filled with toys from baby on up. There's a classroom looking area where the older kids were led with arts and crafts projects. they had a tv/video game area and a physical area with a slide, climbing area, trampoline, and balance beam. Children 4 and up could be left with the employees. I can't say enough nice things about this place. It was really a great energy outlet for my very physical child. Her favorite activity...climbing up the slide
