ARGH!
If you have a room for your photogs I would argue this. This was one of the first questions I asked. It is actually a family friend of ours who is a photog who is coming with us and attending the wedding. My WC said there was no charge for this.

So, today I turned in my checklist, guest list, and wedding information sheet. This kind of makes things feel real, and makes me nervous, all at once. I wanted to add that today Aja has been EXTREMELY quick to get back to me. I'm talking within minutes I have a response. Hopefully, this is how things will be from here on out. I really don't have too many more questions, though, so it shouldn't be too bad. And sadly, I'm thinking I will be a Noob on this site until the day I get married. Seems like it takes forever to gain status in this place.

Def. argue them with it. I hope they will give you a refund. I think once we pay for everything, they're not refundable.

I'm working w/ her for my Oct. 4 2010 wedding at The Royal Cancun and she's been really responsive lately :)

How exciting that everything is "set" for your big day now!

That would really make me angry. If you are paying for their room they are a guest not a vendor. I would really argue that!

Makeup artist or Hair Stylists - You don't have to tip them if they come to you. If you go to the salon, then you should tip them 15%. Why you ask, well the salon makes the money, not the individual. If you have received a good job, and you would tip normally, then go ahead.

DJ - If your DJ owns the company then the tip is optional but if the DJ is an employee $50-100.00. If you have 2 DJs (DJ & MC), give each person $50.00 in separate envelopes. When your guests rave about your reception later, it's the DJ that had everything to do with the fun.

Photographer and Videographer - If these vendors own the company, then the tip is optional. If they are employees $50.00 goes to the main photographer and he/she can give a split to the assistant.


Officiant - To tip them is to trivialize their profession and extremely bad etiquette. Generally you pay your fee and that's it. If you wish to make a financial contribution to the church, you can do that separately.

Florist - You don't need to tip the florist for making your arrangements but you can tip them an extra $5.00 per delivery location (3 locations=$15.00) or $10-20.00 per staff member in one lump sum, for set-up and delivery.

Your Wedding Coordinator - If this vendor owns the company, then the tip is optional. If they are an employee = $50.00

Ceremony or Reception Musicians - $5-10/hr per person, in one lump sum given to the person in charge.


Again, I don't know that you need to tip all of these people, it is just what I saw online.

On another note...I am having a horrible morning and need to vent. Someone used those little black box things on our ATM card and we got taken to the cleaners crybaby2.gif
They took all of our wedding money. The bank is saying they will refund it but they need to investigate first. I told them that I leave in 12 days and they really need to get on this fast! Just what I need now, more stress. Hold onto your ATM's ladies...they are NOT SAFE!!!
So sorry to hear that! I hope they get that sorted out for you quickly! Just follow up on the status of things closely. Good luck!

Try not to let this dampen your excitement - few more days to go!!

You should definately have that looked at!

I was worried about this too, but have just received (finally) an email from my WC that if they are a staying at a Real Resort then there is no vendor fee charged.

So... the funniest thing happened today. Well... I guess it's a good thing that I'm one of those brides who is like "sure whatever" because otherwise it wouldn't be too funny. Anyways, My fiancee and I have a friend who is kind of like Dupree in the movie "You, Me, and Dupree". So it's an ongoing joke with our friends that they call all three of us that. Well, I ordered a personalized cake knife and server from theknot.com and they definitely got the personalization wrong. My last name is Dupre, but they definitely put Kristen and Dupree June 18, 2010. At first I was like WTF? Then, I just laughed. I thought about keeping it as a gag joke, but then realized I actually wanted a server set personalized to keep in a china cabinet. You know one day show your kids or something. I guess that's wierd, but anyways I DEFINITELY sent it back. So ladies, watch out when ordering things personalized from theknot.com

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
