How long does it usually take to book a destination wedding? 1 year? How about in 2 years? After planning hundreds of weddings per year, we have come to a very important bottom line: all couples are different.
It doesn´t matter if you wish to book 3 years in advance or 2 months in advance, we have got it covered. There are only so many factors that go into a wedding, to name a few; flowers, food, dress, cake, photographer, venue, colors and decorations.
Now imagine planning all of this in o

We have been planning a wedding at the Paradisus Hotel in Cancun for about a year. The wedding took place on May 28, 2017. 120 people came from all over the world to celebrate with us. We had 50 rooms at the hotel.
The person from the Romance department that worked with us was Melina Andrea Guerrero Rios. She was horrible!!!!! Words can not describe the aggravation we had all this year and especially the weekend of the wedding. Melina Andrea Guerrero Rios is unprofessional, does not have a clu

Hello BDW Brides!!
I am a newbie to this site and I am already grateful for finding it.
My fiance and I got engaged on Labor Day weekend 2016, and since then it has been a roller coaster of emotions trying to decide a location.
I am currently a full-time nursing student, and trying to accomplish both was driving me insane. So early on I found a wonderful TA and focused on school while she took the information we shared with her and did some research.
Thank heavens she did, because t

You'll love your photos
When you think of taking snapshots in the rain, put aside your visions of frizzing hair and stepping your peep-toes into puddles, and instead focus on the photo-op at hand. "Photos with umbrellas can be so cute that you might even wish for rain," says Samuels. "Multi-colored or completely clear, there's an artistic opportunity to take advantage of with rain." In fact, if you fear rain is in your forecast, "consider silk-screening the bridal party's names on the
The getting ready shot
The getting ready shot. This one’s a classic! Get photos of the groom and groomsmen tying their bow ties, buttoning their vests, and donning their suit jackets. Make sure to capture the groom helping the ring bearer with his attire. So precious!
The Chair Pose
The chair pose. Guys and recliners have a history, right? You can mimic that connection by having the groom sit in a stuffed chair with his guys posed around him.
My fiancé and I recently booked the Majestic Elegance in Punta Cana for our wedding next December 2017.
We are getting married at the gazebo on the beach and having our reception at the Steak House.
If anyone could provide feedback on their experience at the Majestic Elegance it would be greatly appreciated as we are a little nervous on having a semi private dinner.
1) Why are you worth the amount you charge?
There are many reasons we charge the rates we do, some of which are quite obvious: all of our photographers have many years of experience and many, many weddings under their belts, we offer full resolution images with full reproduction rights, we use very expensive equipment, we edit the photos ourselves – each of the photographers edit the photos from the wedding, their own and the second-shooter’s; then there are the “hidden” costs, like havin
Did you know that in Roman history, the bridesmaids dressed alike and formed a bridal troop to march alongside the bride to the groom’s village?! They protected the bride and intervened if anyone tried to bother the bride or steal her dowry. Times have changed a bit since early Roman history, but your bridesmaids will still surround you and protect you (from anxiety!) on your wedding day! You have probably already picked out the ladies who are closest to you. So now, what are the best gifts you

4 Steps to the Perfect Ceremony Processional
How will you line up your ceremony processional? We’ve created a key for you…
#1: List the Participants
First, make a detailed list of participants to include. Make sure the people you both feel closest with, are included. Keep in mind: do not over-do it! The idea is to keep the list within the bridal party and a few family members not to bore the rest of the guests with the processional.
#2: Fiancé Entrance
Traditional or Non Traditiona
