It may be free. Does anyone know the price of using the Royal's AV eqipment?
    I believe it is included for free...that is what we're doing, and we were told there would be no additional fee if we were controlling our own music on their system.

        Shay! You look so pretty! OMG I LOVE your dress! I think that you look fantastic! Veil 2 by the way. I know your arms bother you but really I think its just something that you notice about yourself just like everyone has something! If it makes you feel better to work on them then go for it but honestly I think you look great!

        So hair up or down? How excited are you! I haven't tried on dresses yet and I won't for awhile, got some weight to lose first! :)

          I actually love the chapel length veil, there is something nice about having a long one but...that being said I do think the shorter one is really pretty with the dress. I kinda feel you can't go wrong, they are both nice!
          How exciting...you are getting married, can you believe it. Its now coming so close that you are actually trying on the dress for fittings thats pretty awesome! I am thrilled for you....You look great, I think that you are just self conscious of your arms and thats what you are focusing on. Everyone has their issues but not everyone notices them :) Anyone else have fitting pics yet?

            Shay- I got to thinking this morning about your veil...It's usually really windy or breeze on the beach so I don't know if that is a factor for you for picking a veil or how to do your hair? I know it will be for me although I have no clue what I will do yet. I have seen some pro pictures where the brides hair is in her face or a strand of it across her face or the veil not cooperating! I'm sure you have thought of that, just didn't know if it was a deciding factor for you?

              You look AWESOME Shay! Wow! Your dress is beautiful! I know I'm no help, but I think either veil will work just fine!

                Hey Shay you're going to look beautiful! I had a really long veil.. i think it was cathedral, but it was really really windy even in the gazebo and the longer veil was heavier and stayed out of my face. if you have a short veil you may be constantly trying to keep it out of your face... just my thoughts.. the dress is very beautiful and you look gorgeous btw

                  Thank you my girls!!! I loves ya!

                  I LOVE my dress...and it fit so good yesterday, which was a HUGE relief that my hard work has begun to pay off. As for my arms, if they aren't in as good of shape as I'm hoping by the time the wedding actually arrives, I'm sure that I can talk with our photographer and just make sure she is aware of my issues (!) and works around them! If possible!! It's all in the angle of the shot.

                  I'm going to have my hair similar to what it was in the pictures I just posted...only all the little strands hanging down will be pinned up also. No flyaways...

                  The 2nd veil, that I and everyone else is sort of in agreement is nicer...is actually quite long and the way the bottom tier is cut...it sort of shortens as it gets closer to the top of my body...which adds a nice short panel of coverage over the top of my arms (if it perfectly rests there!). Not chapel length long, but butt length.
                  I'm going to attach another picture (don't mind my expression!), just for you girls, of the side view of the veil. In comparison to the chapel length and the decorated veil (#1 and #2 respectively), the 2nd veil actually felt heavier...maybe because it was a two tier (instead of the single chapel) and the beading on it.

                  Anyways...I have until Thursday to decide on the veil, but I'm definitely liking the 2nd one the best right now. My mom likes the detailing, and the veil is really more for her than me!!! but deep down, I do really love it!

                  If you have anymore advice or tips...throw them at me! I Love you of your feedback and thank you for taking the time!!

                    I think you will make the right choice and feel great about it either way. The heavier the better. Are you guys all doing the trash the dress session and if so are you actually using the dress you are wearing on your wedding day?? Are you going off location to do the shoot? Where?

                    My dress is an amymichelson dress which I love and need to go in to start alterations myself. I bought a sample because it was sooo expensive and was able to get it half off. I have a lot of altering to do because the size is big on me. As for my trash the dress i just bought one this week off of craigslist. It is nothing like my dress but I think will be pretty for the photos the next day and I can't wrap my head around possibly ruining my expensive wedding gown!
