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

Recommended Posts

@@ashhtayy if you use a high cocktail table they usually cover it with white linen and add a bow/ribbon of some sort on the bottom. They try their best to match your colours. We got lucky and they matched our blue chair sashes exactly.

 

Definitely double check about the opening time of the Zky bar, because I heard from another bride that they weren't open until later when she was there. I'm pretty sure it was 5pm but I could be wrong or it could have changed since Jan. 

 

Love your mom's dress - very pretty! I think she'll also love the length and the fabric in the heat! ;)


@@Jasminr3803 Are you only getting your hair done at the spa or your make up as well? Even if it is just your hair I think 2:30pm is too late. You just don't want to feel rushed. You want to budget at least an hour for hair and for make up (each) plus a bit of travel time to get back to your room and get ready (unless you're using the bridal suite at the spa). Are you doing getting ready photos, a first look or photos before the ceremony? If you are doing any photos before the ceremony, also consider the locations where you will be taking them and the travel time to your ceremony location. 

 

I'm sorry to hear you've been shuffled around so much. I did go through two WCs but overall received pretty good service. You do need to stay on top of them though. If your own personal WC can't be reached, just call the main wedding department line for answers. The wedding department knows what they are doing but definitely the onsite team is a lot more flexible and once you're there they really focus on you and your wedding and make it a priority.  :)

Cute dress! 

Don't worry, I also bought the cute, but unnecessary straws and they actually turned out really great. We used them the whole night with all of our drinks. I just gave them to the WC who provided them to our private bar and they used them in any drinks that would usually have a straw.

I am so sorry I've been MIA, I've missed so much. Your flowers, map for signing, signage and dress are all on point! You e accomplished so much and made great decisions. You're so far ahead with everything and I'm so glad it's all coming together. Can't wait to see the rest

@@snswedding2016 Both @@Jasminr3803 and I are getting the run around from AF right now. Jasmin's WD is no longer with the company and mine is well...absent. Completely. They said medical which is totally understandable but they've also promised to call me back twice since Thursday and I haven't heard from anyone. It's getting down to crunch time and it'd be nice to solidify some things. Fingers crossed we hear something ASAP.

 

@ Thank you - I love that dress. And glad you used your cute but unnecessary straws all night - that gives me hope! Maybe I should have bought another pack lol

 

@@Wafflesmom OMG don't be sorry about being MIA! We're just happy to have you pop back on from time to time to share some post-wedding wisdom. Thank you! I'm so happy with how things are coming together :)

 

Minor Updates

 

- First dress fitting is moved from Thursday to Monday due to the snow storm that we may or may not have. Nothing like eating your face off Easter Weekend and then trying to squeeze into your dress!

 

- My MIL & FI's Nonna fly in tomorrow and are staying with us for a week. Mike and I are both off and because they love shopping, the plan is to shop until we find Mike's attire and the GMs attire. Fingers crossed.

 

- Legal wedding is still on lol Happening Saturday. Ah!

 

- Final payment deadline is Monday. Today we found out my girlfriends husband and their 6 year old can no longer make it. We're sad but SO happy she is still coming. In total we've lost 9 guests who had paid deposits. Surprisingly I'm not even freaking out. I'm very calm and just ready to get married. As of today we have 49 adults including Mike and I and two others that say they are coming but haven't booked yet. No more kiddies. Again, were sad the two kids we had aren't coming but I think this just confirms that the party is about to get even crazier.

@@ashhtayy So much exciting stuff coming up for you!  Your comment about eating your face off then squeezing into a dress made me laugh.  I'm know you will look incredible, post pics!  I think we have about the same number of guests, and of course those last minute people who say they're coming but haven't booked... I'm just over a month away and still have 3-5 pending... But either way we both have great numbers!!!

 

omg 3 days until your legal ceremony!  Can't wait to hear all the details!!!

@@ashhtayy If you need anymore i'm pretty sure I still have a mixed assortment of blush and white ones. I think some are polka dot and some are a chevron style pattern.

Thanks ladies @@vancouverpetunia, @@calgarybride2015 & @@deecol!

 

@ - I have 75 with a guest count of 49 - do you think I'm good with what I have? I always figured they'd only last for one drink because they get soggy. Thanks for the offer :)

 

Wedding Designer Update

 

After the missed planning call and multiple failed attempts to get an answer from a supervisor, I called again yesterday. I was told that "all brides are currently being reassigned wedding designers" and that "this should be completed in the next two weeks". I asked if I had a say stating I'd like to keep the same wedding designer seen as how we are getting pretty close and I've done all my planning with her. Without tell me my planner is no longer with the company, they told me I could not have the wedding designer I've been working with for the last year. The girl that took my call let me go through all my list of questions and was helpful, but it was clear she'd never looked at my file and I kept having to say "well it's on the sky deck" "we already confirmed that" "I've asked to not do that anymore", etc. Little disappointed with Karismas "roll out" of the new wedding designers. Not even an email as forewarning or a reason as to why this has to happen.

 

Things we added/changed:

 

- booked Mega DJ from 7-12

- podium rental is in fact not available. They will set up a high cocktail table for our MCs to use.

- reduced cake size to the smallest possible; we are bringing a large fake layer of cake and they told us combining the two won't be an issue.

- will not put wine on each table; too expensive and doesn't seem worth it seen as how there is an open bar with servers

 

I'm sure there is more but I'm writing in a rush :)

@@snswedding2016 yes I am only getting my hair done at the spa. I am having a friend of mine do my makeup. I was finally Able to get in touch with Ashley, one of the WC and she scheduled my hair appt for earlier in the day. I definitely don't want to be rushed and I'm getting an updo anyway so I won't have to worry about my curls falling lol. I want to do the getting ready photos but my fiancé doesn't want to do the first look...which is fine with me.

 

@@ashhtayy those straws are adorable!! I like the small details.

Can anyone share how they packed their artificial bouquets? And how they did with travel.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
