  1. I have this stunning Maggie Sottero Marie Capri wedding gown for sale. I got it brand new and wore only one time for the wedding, it was thoroughly cleaned (I hand washed it, it is actually better than dry cleaning for taffeta). I checked for any spots and couldn't find any. It's as good as new. It can fit a range of sizes due to the corset design. It has a beautiful cream color, with lots of embellishments. It also has a train that can be tied up. I received so many compliments on this dress. The original price of this dress was $1500! Asking only $200 I'll ship with a garment bag, the total weight is dress+garment bag 10lb (in case if you are going to travel with it) It was hemmed for my height 5'6" plus 4.25" heel (I'm selling shoes as well) I included professional photos taken at my wedding and photos of the dress taken in natural light in my room. I listed it on ebay here is a link to the listing, but I can also sell through paypal. Message me if you are interested. http://www.ebay.com/itm/121478174800?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  2. Hi Emme, Alan gave me all shots he did. I don't remember how many but its a lot. We didn't even use them all for our album. He uploads all his photos to password protected page on his website and sends beautifully decorated box with CD. No album which was fine with me because I like to make my own albums. And no, I didn't have to pay anything extra, Alan gave me all shots at no additional cost. I also didn't want them to be edited since I am graphic designer and can do my own edits. Sorry you are having problems. Sandals photographers stroke me as highly unprofessional. Pictures we took with our regular camera came out better than their.

I'm also really glad I was reading on this website, b/c I was under the impression the partner photographers were their photographers. Thanks so much Hello there, congratulation and good luck with Sandals I had hard time with my WC as well, you have to be very proactive with them, I usually called the main line and told them I need to leave urgent message to Chloe and that they make sure she got it, or I would ask question directly whoever responded. She was not good with responding emails or voicemails unless I did all that. I was allowed to have a buffet and I only had 8 people. Honestly their wedding buffet sucked comparing to what they had for regular buffets for lunch or breakfast, maybe regular menu would be better, but they don't allow choosing different entrees so basically everyone gets the same food irregardless if they like it or not, buffet at least gave an option, now I think I should've done reception somewhere outside with more options and longer reception time. Partner photographers are photographers allowed on their property. They are not their, you will have the deal with them directly and sign contract with them not with Sandals. Sandals does not give any guarantees other than they allow them on their property. Their photographers are Snap shots and their quality is acceptable but not the best, with them you don't have to get a package you can purchase photos $20/per photo. I'll send you my website address in private message so you can look at the ceremony and photos. Hope this helps
  4. Thank you ladies for your interest, the bag was sold. There are similar bags on amazon and ebay and they are very helpful
  5. Once it's folded it's 22" wide and 21" long. I measured it empty so thickness will depend on your clothes

Thanks, Megan Hi Megan, my DH carried it on his shoulder and we stuffed it on the plane in carry on, I did not trust anyone with my wedding attire, I also packed my jewelry and shoes in there. This one is 66" my dress was huge, here is exactly the same model as mine http://www.weddingshoppeinc.com/pr/Maggie-Sottero-Capri-Marie/7019, I had it in white garment bag and on a hanger. This bag folds in 3 and it has padded rollers so there is no crease when stuff is folded, when we came to Jamaica none of the garments were wrinkled, I was surprised because I was prepared to steam. My husbands suit was in perfect condition so all other the dresses and suits. Unless the material is super easy to wrinkle it should stay the way you placed it in. It was great that it folded because US Airways would not let me hang it anywhere, If I brought just garment bags it would be a disaster.

  10. We had to get $150 p/p. Our wedding was at 4pm so we had to get all day pass and it included 3 hr reception and cocktail. Regular day pass is $75 pp. And as I said reception followed right after the ceremony which made us rush through the photos and reception and both children had to leave immediately after reception ended with both adults supervising them even though we paid full day passes. To me having a reception at Sandals wasn't worth the money. The total price of reception for 8 people was around 3000, I feel like we could get a much better deal if we went off property.
  11. Honestly, now that I had wedding there, I wouldn't do wedding at Sandals, I would choose smaller and more flexible resort for just the wedding and Sandals for honeymoon. BB wedding is free, but you'll end up paying for addons and if your guests are off property, it's very costly, you wouldn't ask guests pay for their own guest pass.
  12. They partnered with several photgraphers, you have to click on photography partners http://www.sandals.com/weddingmoons/weddings/wedding-photographers.cfm You can call Sandals directly and ask for prices for each, they won't allow anyone else on the property though. The best way to do it if you still want to get married at Sandals to get one of the partner photogs, have them take pics of the ceremony and then go off property to shoot and have reception later after all pics are taken. We had to rush our reception because of the pictures and we didn't have time to leave the property, so all our pics are kind of in the same area. Also, my personal advice, have someone do the video for you, or get video package from Sandals, we are very sorry now we didn't and our camera wasn't charged and no one checked it before the ceremony. We have small video shot by my mom and it brings all the memories much better than photos.
  13. I booked Alan Smith and just received my pictures, they are beautiful. However we had photosession with on site photogs and didn't like it. We picked only 2 pictures after 30 mins photosession. If you'd like samples of mine I can email privately. AS was $3100, 4hrs and we received around 700 shots.
