Congrats on setting your legal ceremony date. An Easter weekend legal :) enjoy!!!

Have you tried Swim co? Have the opposite top problem as I have large girls but I find their suits are well made. Have different styles and sizes for all body types and they do have sales often so you can find a good deal.

@deecol @calgarybride2015 @vancouverpetunia

 

Thanks ladies! The legal ceremony will be super low-key; definitely don’t want to take away from Mexico. And yes, Easter Saturday but only because we wanted to include Mike’s mom and nonna and they will only be here Wednesday to Wednesday so that is the only day we could do it. They’ll be super happy that they could be here for it :)

 

Story of my life – all busty ladies around me ;) I haven’t heard of Swim Co. but I will check them out now! I’ve also checked Victoria Secret but haven’t had much luck. Still time though!

Wow surprised you've never heard of them or seen them in your malls. They are for swim wear as Michael Kors is for hand bags! You'll pay more full price but they last a long time :) I bought my first one in 2013 and it's still going strong :)

@calgarybride2015 just checked the site - they don't have any locations in Ontario! Just Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba - now I know why I haven't heard of them before! Looks like they ship but at those prices I don't think I could buy without being able to try on first. I don't have much luck buying clothes online because I vary so much from designer to designer. Next trip to Calgary I'll check them out though :)

So we got our groomsmen pants in from Cubavera today and Jesse tried them on. After shooting down my suggestion of wearing the Navy linen suit, he actually loves the look and feel of the pants and now wants me to order him his own Boys! If only he had listened to me in the first place, he would have his suit in hand already and just need it tailored!

Anyways, since you're still on the hunt for clothes, just thought I would share the positive feedback on this option. Here are some pictures - please ignore the pile of wedding crap on the floor, lol

@krystalball thank you! We shopped around this weekend and found two linen suits - one at the bay and one at tommy bahama. Mike is now dead set on a particular blue that neither store carried so we are still on the hunt. I showed him Jesse's pants and he really liked them...but groomzilla neeeeeddsss a particular blue lol Thanks again for the feedback.

And too funny about Jesse now wanting them for himself. Hey, just remember when he said "everyone will wear whatever they have" and be grateful that's no longer the case lol It makes me laugh every time I picture all the guys wearing "what they have" on your wedding day. Thank you for sharing that story :)

@Kjmenden

 

Out of curiosity, how did you expect this review to help me or any other future brides of Azul Fives?

 

I’ll start by saying I am truly sorry to read about your wedding experience. No one should ever have to go through what you and your husband did.

 

I do agree that you should leave the bad parts of your wedding behind and hold on the fact that you married the love of your life…and probably not try and terrify other women that are already committed to having their wedding there. You can see from my thread that I am getting married there in less than 4 months; there’s no turning back for us and I don’t feel your commitments are constructive at all.

 

There is a big difference between criticism and constructive criticism. This forum is so wonderful because it allows women (& men) to share their experiences, both good and bad, and support each other through the inevitable struggles of planning a destination wedding. The purpose of constructive criticism is to improve the outcome and in your rant, you didn’t once offer any suggestions as to how to better the situation.

 

I am getting married in just under 4 months and I can’t wait, despite your post!

@Kjmenden I agree with @ashhtayy and honestly, if you'd like to leave reviews then do it in the reviews section of the forum, that's why it exists. Don't bring your rant to someone else's personal planning thread. To be honest, I read small portions of it, but I felt like a lot of it had no merit at all. 

 

I personally know a bride who was married at this resort in January and gave it rave reviews, but I guess there's always going to be the person who finds the negative in absolutely everything. Sadly, you allowed something at trivial as chair bows to make any sort of an impact negatively on your wedding and I feel sorry for you if that stood out more than your special day.
