    What a great idea. I want the beach location (fingers crossed - still waiting to hear back from WC) and I was going to get a pair of shoes for afterwards and my at home reception where I am wearing the dress again and then just go barefoot on the beach but those barefoot sandals are excellent. xx

    im going for our own music from a disk for ceremony and a saxophonist for after while we do a toast!

    We are just taking name cards for dinner which have lilac our theme and butterfly tags to go on the glasses also lilac.

    oh and candle bags they look fab at night so taking some of those.

    my wedding is 16th April so I'll do a review then. X

        Hi Trisha,

         

        We are thinking about taking my Fiance's cousin down to take our pictures. I am not sure if she will need a permit. Do you happen to have a website or forms that need to be filled out and the equipment restricitions? Thank you for all your help :)

              we took 30 metres of organza material, I cant really remember how much it cost..mayve around £70?! The chair ties were organza also but we just bought these off ebay. We initislly sent for a sample one. they were really cheap, about £30 for 30 ties. I actually bouth them first and themed the rest around the ( I was a bit osessed with the chairs!) We just used real petals from resort, one pack was scattered ready, and the flowergirl scattered some more while she was walking.

                I wonder if Vina would think differently about that.  He is only in the three photos that I posted above for Cheryl's pictures, but because he was there I had to change the way that I photograph weddings.  Had he not been there, I would have gotten different angles and photographs.

                Hopefully your Fiance's cousin in a professional photographer.  If she is conducting business, she needs the proper visa.  There are photographers that don't fill out the paperwork.  And there are photographers that have been detained and have gone through hell because of it.  It's just really not something to risk when you're dealing with someone's wedding photographs.

                  I've asked my WC this question before and she said it was okay :). However, you don't get anything extra in place of it.... (ie I was trying to get extra flowers for wedding decor since I wasn't using their minister lol). Hope this helps!!

                    Jemma, did you bring 2 x 30 meters of pink color (1 dark and 1 light) organza? Also, does the resort cut the fabric for you to go around each pole of the hammock and across the two ends? Loved your decor by the way!!
