Hi everyone! I know there are already quite a few Azul Fives Forums, but none that I have seen for 2016 brides! So I wanted to start one. I am currently waiting to hear from the resort on whether my wedding date is confirmed in November 2016. Anyone else start the process of wedding planning at this resort for 2016? Let's share stories along our planning adventures!! 

 

Congrats everyone, and I look forward to hearing all your plans for your upcoming wedding at this gorgeous property.  :)

@@hirvine83 I'm getting married at Azul Fives in January 2016. Most of my planning is done, just trying to tackle the to do list for the home stretch. I'm going to the BDR this Sunday!! I'm so excited to see the resort in person finally. Let me know if you have any specific questions and I can report back for you.  :)

 

Happy planning!

That is amazing! I will definitely need to pick your brain about planning, etc!!! Where are you having your ceremony and reception?? I want to have mine on the skydeck, but have seen mixed reviews about wind! Did you pick any of their packages?.....I feel like I have so many questions for you- lol. You are in Ontario as well- so hope some of the same planning tips will apply! :)

@hirvine83 

 

We're having our ceremony on the Sky Terrace (one floor below the Sky Deck) and our reception is in the garden. We decided to just use the basic Always and Forever package and then build a la carte from there. I'm bringing most of my decor with me but keeping it fairly simple. 

 

Where in Ontario are you? Are you close to Toronto? If so, you should join us next week for our GTA brides meet up! There's a separate thread on here for it.

We also went with the always and forever package and then added things a la carte. It was the most cost effective choice in my opinion, unless you have the exact amount of people included in the package. Otherwise it costs an arm and a leg paying for those extra people. 

 

We only chose their vintage elegance theme for the reception tables. They looked gorgeous! 

 

About the wind, I was super worried about this, but I was so thankful for the breeze up in the sky deck during our wedding. It was sooo hot on the day of our wedding that if it hadn't been for the wind we would have died. There was sweat running down my legs during the ceremony bahaha. Thank God no one could see that haha. The wind kept things cool, especially when we danced during our reception. During the videos on ustream, the wind sounds a lot worse than it actually is. Our day wasn't especially windy but it looks and sounds like it was on the video. If you like the sky deck, do it! It has to be a crazy windy day for it to be annoying. In that case however, it might be just as annoying at the sky terrace or on the beach, so you might as well have the view to make up for it ;)

Hi ladies! Congrats to all of you. I'm excited to say that I'm confirmed at Azul Fives in October 2016. I will be exchanging vows with my love on the Sky Deck. Save the dates have been ordered and will be sent out this weekend. I originally booked Pure Glamour's Ultimate Memorable Moments Wedding Experience which covers 24 guests but I may change to the basic Memorable Moments and a la carte the rest if I have more guests than expected. I deal with event planning and didnt want to be bothered with or stressed about it all the way in Mexico. But, if it's more cost effective to do so based on the amount of guests I'm having, then so be it.

 

I have a conference call with my wedding designer scheduled for this week. I'm looking forward to it because I have a lot of questions to ask. In the mean time, I've been researching welcome bags, dresses and vendors. I have a year to plan but the earlier I complete a task, the better. I'm trying to minimize any possible stress! Besides... a year can fly by in a blink of an eye. This is all too exciting, though! Happy planning ladies! ;)

Hi everyone I'm Sarah! I'm so happy my fiancé found this forum some wives-to-be to chat to! We are travelling from England and our wedding date is 24th October 2016!

 

I just emailed my wedding planner last night and I think we have actually finished planning (eeeek!)

 

Sorry if I bore you!

 

We are having a sky top wedding ceremony at 4.30pm. We were going to choose the vintage elegance wedding theme but it worked out way to expensive so we just chose some ceremony add ons such as the white sheer panels, a bag of rose petals and a coloured chair now for each guest. This will be followed by the white glove cocktail party which lasts 2 hours - we will be getting our pictures taken with the photographer while our guests nibble on some canapés! The cocktail party also comes with 2 hours of international bar. After this we will be holding a private event also on the sky top deck which will include a whole load of food, sides, salads and desserts! This includes another 4 hours international open bar! We also changed our dinner at flavours restaurant (which is included in the always and forever package) to the day before our wedding! I literally have a folder, a note book and a scrap book of wedding stuff so if anyone has a question I can try to answer them and I might have some questions too :-) xxx

@@Sgarc061 Hi and welcome! I wish I could help on the photography front but we've opted to bring our photographers with us from Toronto. Search the site though - you'll find tons of recommendations for great photographers. Good luck!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
