@@ashhtayy thanks for your response!!! I will be moving to the Always & Forever package and customizing my own! Are you ready for your wedding!?

 

Are you carrying your dress with you on a carry on when you fly? I'm scared to send it in a suitcase & it get lost.

Yes @@Rubyy we have chosen Shenko Photography. Their work looks amazing, however they aren't an approved photographer so there will be an $800 fee to pay for them to come into the hotel on your wedding day. To be honest, I don't care because their pictures look so amazing and they reply to emails really fast (I'm in London, England). I can't wait to meet them I feel like I know them already.

 

Check them out!

@@Rubyy No, definitely not ready but not in a panic - there's still time :) Most of the big things are out of the way at this point but need to set aside sometime to work on the little tedious things.

 

I am absolutely carrying my dress on - no way I'd put it in a suitcase. I would also be so scared it would get lost. I want to know exactly where it is at all times lol

Has anyone used the Dj service with the MC? How did you find them? :)

@@Rubyy I don't know if they have spray tanning but I agree with @@ashhtayy about it rubbing off. I would definitely recommend upgrading to airbrush for your make up. It was pretty hot on our wedding day and I didn't sweat it off at all. Like @@sassylouxx we used an outside photographer as well and paid the outside vendor fee. The fee was expensive but definitely worth it - we absolutely loved our photographers!! We used Photos in Cancun - they were amazing! They were actually guests at our wedding we got along so well. We got the smaller package and invited them to join us for the dinner and reception.  :)

 

@@KBrown I didn't use the DJs (we made our own playlist and just rented the sound equipment) but I know several brides have and loved them!

Hi Ladies,

 

We are getting married at Azul Fives on November 29, 2016. We are doing the ceremony and reception on the sky deck!

 

I was just wondering what the facebook page is called that everyone is trying to join? i tried looking up azul fives and karisma but I can't seem to find one that gives you an option to join. 

 

Also, does anyone have any good photographers/videographers they recommend? 

 

thanks!

For the reception what have some of you done for a head table?

Did you have your bridal party all sit together? I saw they have retangular tables and I was thinking of doing that for the head table then round for the guest. I have 10 people in my party including us, bride and groom, and was thinking about doing the Imperial table for 10 people. Now im thinking it probably sits 10 people, but 5 on each side and not everyone on the same side facing the guests. Hope this makes sense and someone can help.

@@KBrown We have 10 in our bridal party + us. We decided to do three rectangular tables for us and our bridal party and then rounds for our guests. If you look in my gallery I have posted the dimensions of the rectangular, square and round tables.

 

A few things I've seen...

 

- sweetheart table and then have the bridal party sit with their significant others.

- brides sit with their groom and his best man and her MOH and have the rest of the bridal party sit with their significant others.

 

Personal preference really! My girls all said they wanted to sit at the front with Mike and I so that's what we're doing :)

@@ashhtayy thanks for the response. I also want to have the bridal party together but like I said I want us all to sit on one side. Since I'm doing the tables from MM that can be really expensive to have three of them....hmmmm lol

@@ashhtayy hey! Question for you. When you spoke with your wedding designer in the Miami office did she speak good English and did you speak to the actual person you deal with through email?

    • this topic is so nice. the sikh wedding cards are most important. when the wedding ceremony in Sikh.
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
