If you look on the Karisma website there is a spot where you can do a search for a GI TA. Or you can just Google like I did. I just keyed GI travel agent Toronto and it brought up the list for me. Should do the same for you I would think. But Brunette 14 are you in the US? If so you do 't need to go any further than here to look for one. There is also one that some of the ladies in Canada seem to really like if that's where you are. Wright Travel are affiliated with this site and have several awards given by resorts and are absolutely GO Certified. There is a link on the site that you can use to contact them.

Good luck and happy planning!

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

Hi all just started looking at azul for an option my wedding really like this resort however I dreamed of a beach wedding and the beach ceremony location doesn't look great or private right in between all the loungers . Does anyone know if you can have the ceremony at a different spot on the beach? I would be fine with even having it without the canopy thing as the ocean is a beautiful backdrop enough.
Thanks in advance!

Forever can never be long enough for me, to feel like I've had long enough with you...19/01/2016

How do I find one of those?!?!

Totally agree with the previous post. Don't book unless you have a GI certified travel agent, especially if you're in Canada because you basically get no perks unless you have one. here's the website to find one. I can also recommend mine if you're in Canada, she's based in Calgary but she honestly does not need to be in the same city, most of our communication is through e-mail and phone.

    @Lissie88 I'm not sure about the whole overbooking thing. Although for your guests that booked with your wedding group I really doubt they would separate the group and send them somewhere else. It might happen for people who go on their own and during very high season. 

     

    For trips our group got quoted around $1500 for a deluxe room with taxes incl. or $1700 for a one bedroom suite. I'm from Canada, so these prices include airfare as things are a bit different here. We're traveling in August. I suggest you find out the prices before you book as this might be a deal breaker (at least it would have been for us). Also, if you're working with a Karisma GI certified TA she'll be able to reserve your date and get in contact with the hotel without you having to contact them directly. You also get extra perks by working with one of them :). The way it works is that the TA will block rooms for you at a rate and people will have a certain amount of time to book. She'll then take care of reserving the wedding date with the hotel. 

    When were you travelling/flying out of?!?

        Is anyone getting one of the signature packages? Do you know if they are open to changing some of the features?

        @Brunette14 I'm just getting one of those for the reception tables but I bet they would be willing to change something. They might charge you extra though. I wanted to rent out just the table cloth and the runner for the cake table but that was like $60. What were you thinking of changing?

          I want to do the sophisticated soiree package for the ceremony but change the chandelier to the clear one rather than black and change the chair covers to white rather than black and then just no isle runner and ill provide pink rose petals.

          I think they'd let you do it but ask your WC. They seem to want to charge for everything so I'd make sure they won't charge you anything extra. Also check how much it is to "build your own" rather than paying $250 for the whole table it might be cheaper to rent out the items and make your own package sort to speak.
