    Hey Lil,

    Your pictures are wonderful - thanks for sharing! I really liked your bridesmaid dresses, the blue was beautiful and the style was very flaterring. Where did you end up getting them from?

    Thanks,

    Jenn

      Jenn,

       

      They were from Victoria's Secret.  They are currently $68 but I got them on sale for $59 plus a 20% off online promo code since I spent over $300 (ordered 6 BM dresses) -- the color is beach blue.  Can't beat $50 for BM dresses.  I am totally anti-"any-dress-that-swooshes-when-you-walk" so I went to V.S. and one busty BM picked the dress out and I said okay!

        Hi Jenny, 

         

        I would assume from the posts over the last year that most of them are not using the resort photographer. The reason for me was that they are charging a ridiculous price. They don't give you all the pictures that they take until you pay for each of them. Unlike Michael, it's a flat rate and he takes a ton of pictures and they are yours to keep. Also, the resort photographer charges per hour and also their videography is expensive. So after doing the math, we ended up getting a much better deal with Michael. Since we have a wedding package and get a photographer in the package, we will be using the resort photographer for free for our ceremony, so at that time we will have two photographers.

         

        Hope this helps.

        Ska2

                I wish they would carry the dress in a pink since ill be using pink as my color though :( hopefully they'll add new color soon.

                  I used the resort photographer. I have all my professional pictures posted on facebook if you want to friend request me to look at them (Jackie Truesdell). I dont know how to put them on here. We loved our pictures.

                   

                  I had the Ultimate Wedding Package which included 50 photos of the ceremony. We added on the Bronze Package which was $500 in order to have posed pictures after the ceremony. We ended up paying $720 total to have all 100 pictures printed and put on a cd. Probably not the cheapest option but I was all about just dealing with the resort as our 1 vendor because that was easiest for my parents who were paying for it all.

                    I am planning my wedding for June 4th 2011 and I have the Hit for my reception site.  I was wondering if anyone has used the paper lanterns to decorate the site?  Can you post some pics for me?  U can email me at farlem311@yahoo.com.  I am curious as to how to hang the lanterns.  I am also concerned about lighting.  If it gets dark, will there be ample lighting? 

                     

                    I also wanted to express my gratitude for all the information you ladies have provided.  I learned so much from all of you.  I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon this forum.

                      Farlem,

                       

                      My reception was on Himitsu as well.  I do not know if there is a place for paper lanterns above the guests since it's a terrace but maybe hanging from the pillars?  Paper lanterns are great at Portofino (FKA Bordeaux) though.  Our cocktail hour started at 6pm with the reception at 7pm.  We closed up shop a little after 11pm and there were no lighting issues.  Actually, I think the lighting was perfect -- enough light for buffet, bar, DJ and bathroom but the dance floor and tables were perfect!
