About badrianne

  1. Oscar Ernie, The photographer and assistants will take a bunch of pictures and then you get to pick your favorite 25 shots (if you pay for the $25). You can either have them made into 25 prints or you can have a cd with the 25 images so you can get whatever size prints you want. Mexico102, I had 3 weddings on my day (which is unusual). I would email your wedding coordinator your 1st choice and then 2nd in case of rain. It's first come first serve. If it rains I'm sure they will take care of you. They'll probably put one of you in that nights closed restaurants. Also they can split the room above portofina into two rooms if your groups are small enough (around 30).
  2. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing

For us Wednesday and Thursday were super windy (I couldn't have worn a veil) but luckily Friday and Saturday (wedding) were like half as windy and my veil stayed on. It is a windy time of year. However it's nice because the resort is not overflowing with kids (because schools in) and it isn't super duper hot yet. It rained Sunday evening very hard and sprinkled Monday evening. Since I was afraid of the wind and heat, Josh and I had a "first look" moment with the photog in the garden by the adult pool prior to going to the gazebo to get wind blown. Hope that helps. Thanks Tifuhhknee and nairay! I want to give back a little of what BDW gave to me! Congrats on being DPA brides. You are going to love it!

As far as the dinner, plated vs. buffet, even though you had more than 40 people you could have had it plated? Sorry my answer was confusing. You're right she only gave us the buffet option.

Our drowned centerpieces were the only part of the wedding that didnt come out as planned.

I'm so excited for you and I bet you can't believe you're down to the wire here already. Congrats and have a wonderful time!! Oh my goodness you are too sweet. Thanks for being such a support during the whole planning process. And please give yourself credit for all the work you did including hand delivering all the OOT bags.

  14. I got my photos! Believe it or not these photos are from the resort photographer and all but the trash the dress were included in our ultimate package price. Josh and Adrianne As for buffet vs. plated, I agree that it's preference. We had buffet and it was less stress for me because I knew there would be a lot of options for picky eaters.
