I was told an hour before would be ok 2 so i'm hoping to sneak the photographer in as they are the only ones not staying at our hotel lmao and Lisa is right it does go up it was $50 last year lol the bloody bandits

I have the same attitude! I don't even bother with all the crazy details. It will all work out in the end. On a funny note...

I went to try my wedding dress on for the first time. It is a separate and I tried to pull the skirt up and it stopped just at my theighs. We looked to see if it had more zipper to pull down but no luck. I then attempted to pull it over my head and still it would not go around my big butt! I have lost 20 lbs since I tried on the sample skirt which is the same size as the one I ordered so I figured it would fall off me. Well to make a long story short...after some careful research by my bridesmaid (who was livid by the way) noticed that the sample on the floor was labeled wrong and I ordered 2 sizes too small. THEY DID NOT EVEN MEASURE ME! I was not aware of the fact that wedding dresses run so small so when I ordered a 10 I figured I would be fine as seeing I am now in a size 6-8. They then had to take the seam out on both sides (about an inch total) so it could just barely fit! It is a trumpet (mermaid) skirt and I am quite endowed in the butt area so I am a little concerned about the whole "splitting" issue! I KNEW I SHOULD HAVE ORDERED THE A-LINE!! Guess I will eat again in 2 months and 1 day.

I guess if I did not lose it at that point I am free and clear not to freak out for the next 2 months!!

OMG Jen! I would have freaked out! I can't believe they didn't measure you just to be sure. I hope they didn't make you pay for the alterations, since it was their mistake.

Look at this point I am hoping the dress freaking fits! I started having panic attacks last night and got on the phone this morning to get a seamstress to make me a whole new skirt just to be safe! My Bridesmaid (Desiree) wants to go over there tomorrow and kick some butt!

Hey Everyone,

 

Just wanted to let you know that I discussed the discount Mannia is offering for BDW brides with Claudia and she said they would honor it on new bookings.

 

Just thought I'd let everyone know in case they were considering hiring him.

 

Jill

I hope someone can help me... PLEASE. Cecilia wants to move my wedding from 4 to 5 in the gazebo, November 7th. I keep hearing it may be too dark. Does anyone have experience with this? Sunset for that day will be at 5:07pm.. We are taking our photos before the wedding but I am concerned about it being so dark during the ceremony that the pictures of the wedding will not show the amazing blue water in the background. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is my first panic moment so far!

my advice would be to tell her "NO" if it already says "4 in the gazebo" on your contract. sounds like they have another wedding that day and are trying to get one of you to change. why can't it be the other wedding that has to change?! if you don't already have it in your contract, then i would ask to change it to an earlier time rather than a later one and see if that works.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
