She lives in Australia as it is so I never get to see her. SO i hear ya there girls. Its a toughy but its what i always wanted to have a destination wedding.
If you really want her there but she can't afford it, is there any way you can help out with the bill? That's what we did for FI's mom even though we really can't afford it (WHOLE other issue, but she'll be there and that was what was most important to us).

Just an FYI with booking the MP. We decided on Thanksgiving to have a destination wedding and I contacted the MP the next week. I wasn't able to reserve my wedding date (for January 2009) until mid-Feb. and that was only after hounding and hounding them.
I'd say, if you have a photographer you really really want, have her hold your date, but explain what's going on...it's far enough in advance that they should be ok working with you. Also, even if you don't get the time you want, with so many time slots in one day, you should be able to get your date. Just start asking them and keep in touch with them, so once it's opened for booking (might not be until Feb!) you'll be on their minds.

People can give you an idea of what prices they were quoted...but a lot of the time it changes based on what year, time of year, location, etc. etc. Your best bet is to just shoot an email to the photogs your interested in.

Oooh thanks for the heads up! I have only been assuming the website would start including 2010 bookings in january....i might actually give elizabeth medina a wee email and see where i get from there! cheesy.gif

Don't assume! And even after we booked our date, it still wasn't up for booking on the website for at least another week or two!! Hound them at least once or twice a month!

 

Then again, I can be a pest if I want to be LOL

I know most of the photographers that I talked to required 50% to hold the spot. Which is a lot of money!!!! Just keep that in mind =)

I've sent Elizabeth Medina a wee email explaining the situation - hope I don't sound like a scrooge - but i'm not really prepared to put a deposit down for a wedding date I can't even book yet! What would happen if I didn't get the date with mp i am wanting, then go to Elizabeth Medina with a new date, and that is booked? I'm thinking i would lose the deposit - because thats the whole point in deposits!lol

Sorry for rambling on there....phew!

We do want Elizabeth Medina to do the photography ALOT...but not at a cost I might lose sad.gif

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort? 
    • Hello Everyone, Share your favorite wedding venues. And also give me a Solution. I choose Wedding Venues in mobile al the Anne-marie cottage.
