Hi Ladies,

 

Do any of you know what the Always & Forever Ceremony actually looks like (as in, pictures, not just a description)?  I can't get a reasonable response from my WC, but because we're doing our ceremony on the skydeck I'm hoping the landscape speaks for itself - I didn't want to have to spend another $3k to upgrade the ceremony as well.

Hi Ladies,

I don't have pictures but one of the members here posted a website with videos. Here is the website http://www.ustream.tv/search?q=azul+fives

it can give you a pretty good idea as to what it looks like. I know that at the sky deck we get the nice stone and glass table, rather than the table with the skirt on it, for free and the white wooden chairs (which are fine by me). From the videos I found that less was more up there so we're also going with the free package rather than spending 3k on top of the 1700 

to any girls who have done the bride's dress rehearsal, how far is the beach from the hotel? How much do you have to walk?

Where did you hear you get the plexiglass table for free??? I was told that the skirted table was included and the table that was clear was $200 (managed to get it for $150 since that was what the price was quoted at BDR). That is for a sky deck wedding and on top of the $1700! The set ups I had seen of the sky deck had a skirted table and I hated it- so I'm upgrading but they certainly said it was a rental that needed to be brought in by lomas.

I asked my WC because i also wanted to know how much was the chandelier I saw on some of the videos. The chandelier is $250 but she said that the table is actually part of the gazebo so it's included. 

"The Chandelier is $250 and the stone and the stone altar table is a fixed item with the gazebo- so no extra cost J"

Hmmmm I'm doing the chandelier but at the reception... Maybe the gazebo tables are different at fives than sensatori sky decks... But I thought the "package" was identical with what you get.

 

Damn! Oh well... $150 wasn't too bad... I will suck it up I guess.

Maybe, I think the packages are the same so I guess the gazebo is just different. I won't mention it to her, if they made a mistake too bad for them, they're already ripping me off left right and centre haha. Although I do feel bad for my WC because she's so sweet  :unsure:

Hello everyone!

Has anyone booked that incredible resturaunt with the jungle views for a reception? Also how does it work when using an outside source for wedding decorations?

Hello everyone!

Welcome to our little planning thread! I'm not sure which one is the restaurant so I can't give you any useful info. 

 

As for outside sources with decorations, be careful, if some other vendor comes to set it up they charge an $800 fee per vendor. We're renting a few things from a lady that I heard from here. She's meeting us outside somewhere in Playa and we're bringing things in as if I had brought them from home. The hotel still charges a set up fee, but to give you an idea of how much money we save compared with going with Lomas: We want string lights across the terrace, Lomas charges somewhere around $200 per string, with 13 bulbs each and I will be paying $15 per string, with 25 bulbs. Even with the set up fee there's no comparison. Then we're trying to keep flowers to a minimum because that's another money pit and using fake flowers where necessary. I heard that the set up fee gets arranged when we get there (which is a bit nerve wrecking at least for me that I like to know how much everything will cost) but i goes to a max of $5 per person. 

 

On totally unrelated notes. Our guest list pretty much jumped in the last few days ahaha! We went from expecting 30 people to pretty much everyone say they were coming last minute, so we're at around 47 including us. Sadly, only 3 people away from getting our third free person because many are booking on their own  :( but at least we get a free cocktail party! yay!

Her name on here is mrsHK. I just sent her a message and then she emailed me with the prices and shared a Dropbox folder with all the pictures :)

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
