Do you happen to know where the carriage stops in a beach wedding ( I am assuming you can use the carriage for the beach wedding as well right?)

Thanks for your help!!!

PS I also loved the calla centerpiece you used in your ceremony

If you remember in a couple of ours pics, my hubby and I are sitting/leaning against the stairs ledgehuh.gif Well at the top of those steps is where the carriage would stop. The runner starts right as you hit the sand at the bottom of those stairs. So whoever is giving you away would help you off the carriage and walk down the stairs with you.

I chose the Calla's to go with the bouquet. As you probably already know, the choices for flowers included in the packages aren't very many. I didn't want to typical carnations or roses so I mixed it up a little bit. They do however, allow you to choose the style of bouquet that you want and choose whatever type of flower you want to use. (well that's of course from the types of flowers offered for the included bouquets) But if you look through those choices you'll see that there are a few choices. So I picked my style of bouquet and then went with the callalillies and white roses. I really liked the way mine and my MOH's bouquets turned out. They also have you chose the color ribbon to be tied around the flowers. I was even more surprised when I simply said "navy blue" and they matched my MOH's dress perfectly!

I loved your pictures, did you take any pictures of your reception? I would love to see those if you have any.

Again, very happy for you!


Here are some of the pictures taken at dinner. As you will see, we ended up on the main karaoke stage. So I guess you can say we shared our first dance with about 100 guests of the resort. Then we were invited to dance along with the entertainment staff. It was a blast! Sorry if some of the pics are blurry...the hubby was taking pictures and we had already enjoyed several bottles of champagne and who knows how many Don Julio shots? smile36.gif

Hi Ladies!


We booked a civil wedding ceremony with a group package, so that when we had 10 rooms booked we would get a free cocktail reception, etc. Now we are thinking about making our ceremony symbolic, and getting married here first (but not telling anybody). Does anyone know if you get the same group deals with a symbolic ceremony as with a civil? I don't see why it would matter, but you never know, and my wedding coordinator hasn't gotten back to me yet...

Nibs -

Do you remember approximately how much Cecilia Dumas runs for a TTD? Her work really is beautiful and there were a number of pics of hers I had to save to show as samples to the resort photog.

Although I have a fall back that I can do a solo session at lake tahoe, I would so much rather do it on the beach with the waves and non-alpine tempertured water.

I sent her an email to see if she would even be available in the couple of days following our ceremony. Cross your fingers for me!

Hi girls...


I just wanted to get back to those of you who were asking the name of my resort photographer...it was David Peña. He really puts a lot of time into his work =)

Thank you for the information about the carriage. I can't really even imagine what kind of entrance that would be... i.e. whether it would be less dramatic because people can't really see you up there from the beach, or if it would be more dramatic because you would be high up there....


Also, your reception turned out great as the restaurant didn't seem crowded at all and the ceiling of that restaurant is stunning.


I have about 3 months to go and I'm really excited.

Marie, I didn't get to find out how much Cecilia is - she is on vacation while I'm in Mexico so our conversation kinda stopped there! I started pursuing her though because I saw a post somewhere on here about her doing it for about 500 though. I'm trying to see about Claudia Rodriguez now. This is like the fourth photographer I've wanted that didn't work out for one reason or another - so frustrating.

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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.
