I hope everything works out and you get your photographs....what's the point of taking the time to take your pictures if the photographer isn't going to give them to you!! what a waste of time!!! If you look up boudoir photography in your area, quite a few will pop up!!

 

We have all of our attire, for the exeption of my FI shoes, we're good to go..We picked up my HOH dress last weekend..I posted a pick of it in the wedding attire section if you want to take a look at it!! the color is awsome and it fits my sister like a glove...can't wait till it comes in

 

I did my boudoir shoot on sunday!! it was so much fun, we had a beautiful day for it too, so we got some shoots outside at like 9, before the sun was way too brite, and before the neighor's came out....believe you me there would have been a show for them...lol We had a blast....My sister came along to do a shoot for her boyfriend, they turned out really good.....the photog sent us tasters, and I can't wait to see them all..The funny part about this, is my esthetician told me that her cousin by marriage, Chris, was looking to expand his portfolio, so we made the app. for Chris to do the photo shoot. I added him to my friends on facebook.....well he knows my FI!!!!! Chris worked with my FI a couple of yrs ago..... I would have paid money to see my face when he asked me how I knew Chris... So I told my FI that we were doing a photoshoot to promote my esthetician's bussness....he told me to keep my shirt on!!!! I laughed so hard, I can't wait till he sees the pics....what a small world!!! I can't wait to post some, as soon as I get some I'll keep you guys posted....so worth it, it makes you feel sexy and empowered all at the same time feeling naughty.....truly and awsome experience.....

BTW, I have inquired about the cost of a sound system (no DJ, just system) Carolina says it will cost $200 for them to set it up. Feels pricey. Mind you the post-dinner party is cheap, $9 a head for a bar and they set it up for free.

 

We've got Ipod speakers, but I'm not 100% confident they will be loud enough. I think we will take them with us and test them on the first day, then if they sound awful we'll shell out the $200. I guess that is what contingency money is for.

Congratulations Ottawa Bride! Thank you for the wonderful review. Your pictures are amazing! I've been MIA on this site for a while, kind of sitting back until the day gets closer, but you've renewed my excitement!! Can't wait to share your story with my FI.

 

Best Wishes to you!!

She kept on telling me that I didn't know what I wanted, but it was the opposite I did know and she didn't have what I wanted!!! eurghh!!!!

anyway the first store at the corner, was good, I know a few people that bought there dresses there and got a good price for them. It's worth looking for sure.

I got lucky for my dress, there was a sample sale from baroness bridal last june near the St-Laurent shopping center, the hotel beside the link's stadium and found my dress there.

let us know how it goes for you, good luck on finding your perfect dress :)

Okay Gals... I found it! Not in Moose Creek (and I know exactly which lady you guys got... she tried to get me to order bridesmaid dresses in white instead). Anyhoooo....went to Montreal and found it at Sposa Bella. Its gorgeous... exactly what I wanted with Ruffles and flowers... and i ended up getting ivory -- it just looked nicer on me. I get it in March. Now we just have to get the bridesmaids organized and the FI and gang. And the great news this week.. we have close to 40 booked! Yahoo!!!

According to prices I've seen it is only $250 for the DJ? I agree that $200 is too much for them to set up a "sound system". I hope that is negotiable if you decide that you do need/want the system.
Best Wishes!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
