Ashhtayy's Planning Thread - Azul Fives - June 7, 2016

Recommended Posts

Number two has taken a strong lead. Thanks @@maybeoneday & @!

 

Cake topper arrived! I'm too scared to remove it from the packaging so this is the only pic I can share until it shows up on our wedding cake :) Etsy Vendor: BashandCoParty

 

We also booked an officiant for our at home legal ceremony. We're still working out the logistics but we will be legally married in our new home March 26th (2 months today!) around 5PM. It will be a surprise for my parents and brother as well as Mike's mom and nonna - hopefully they don't find this forum first lol After the surprise wedding we will head to a local restaurant we love for some delicious food and drinks!

Woo! I we surprised my parents too.. It was pretty funny. I had the officiant coming to their house. I got there and they were doing yard work haha. Then my dad was disappointed because he thought the surprise would be me telling them I'm pregnant. Ohhh man hahaha

@ Super cute idea to have the surprise at their house! I can already imagine what my dad will say - "Okay, so are we still going to Mexico? I don't understand this whole thing".


Hi @@ashhtayy
just had my wedding at Azul Fives on December 5th and I have a lot of feedback I can give you in terms of expectations of the resort and wedding team and how things actually run based on my experience. Have you locked your wedding in yet? Also since your wedding is smaller have you considered the possibility of booking through the hotel direct? I'm not sure if that's possible but we noticed a lot of specials running online periodically. The unknown rates thing seems a little odd to me but maybe you should consider a different travel agent. Let me know any other questions you might have....my experience was not stellar with Azul Fives but I think if my expectations were lower I may have been a little more prepared for how things were actually going to run throughout our wedding experience.

 

I'd gladly receive any feedback you have to offer. Our wedding is June 7th, 2016 on the Sky Deck. We are in Canada and booked using a travel agent back in March. Our guests were required to pay their deposits by June 7th, 2015 in order to obtain the group rate we secured. It seems as though we don't get any perks because of the deals we get on combined flight + hotel. The only bonus we did receive because we used a GI certified TA is a credit that can be used towards the spa, photography or a cocktail party. We have opted for the spa credit for my wedding hair and makeup.

 

If you don't mind sharing, what specifically were you unhappy with in regards to your wedding at AF? On-site coordinator? Flowers? DJ? Photography? Food?


Oh! @ - I ordered all my other runners (I couldn't wait) and just checked the tracking number - they're set to arrive tomorrow! :) I thought I would have to wait until Friday to see them but they've shipped quite quickly.

She was the first etsy vendor I have ever purchased from that never convo or emailed me. I like getting that thank you message or a little note in the packaging. Maybe I've just purchased from extra sentimental vendors in the past lol I am happy with our topper. There isn't much too it but that is all we needed. It's exactly as described on her shop too so no surprises at all. I hope you find something you love!

 

YAY! It's like Christmas every time a parcel arrives. Today's delivery was our table runners. As mentioned before I'm purchasing @ cake table cloth and three runners. I ordered seven additional runners from the same shop. We will have 6 guest tables, a rectangular everything table, a cake table and a head table. I decided to save a bit of money by doing runners on all tables (except cake).

 

These were purchased from www.chaircoverfactory.com for $10.39 USD each. I am so happy we went with champagne instead of gold because these look gold. I'm not sure I would have liked the 'gold' colour.

i got the champagne ones too - and so happy that i did - they are definitely gold. also - i would advice to not take them out of the packaging until you get to the resort. i took one out and the sequin got everywhere in my apartment. obviously they are cheap for a reason. so to preserve as much sequin as possible, i am keeping all of mine (10) in their original packaging until the day of the wedding. which brings me to the question - any ideas on how to get the folds out?
