I would imagine that you want the photographers to be available the entire night to take pictures correct? If so I don't think its such a good idea to tell them to disappear and come back ...what if they don't come back in time and they miss something really important or something really funny that you wished you got on camera...I mean it comes down to $80 buxs and if its worth it...If I'm not mistaken if you were home you would have to pay for the photographers and the DJ to eat at the reception thats just protocol...but if it is a major concern I would talk to your photographers before making a decision...A week is a long time to spend with someones family...my photographers spent just a weekend with us and they partied and shopped along with us we had all become pretty cool by the end of the trip, I think I would have felt a bit awkward to make her go somewhere else while everyone sat down for the reception...

Anybody thought this through or any past brides that can provide some feedback?   

Thx!

Hope everyone had an lovely Christmas and is looking forward to an amazing new year!

Beach brides, what are you wearing for shoes? I love high heels and don't think I can do without them on my wedding day. I think I've read on this thread that the sand isn't that deep and heels would work. Any advice? And have you seen the adorable shoes with the light blue soles? The something blue right on the bottom of your feet. Makes for cute pictures. I also love the blue "I Do" crystals I have seen on Etsy.

I am planning on wearing heels but they're not huge.  I think they are maybe a 2.5 inch heel and super comfy.  I have been looking at other shoes because I really love hot pink/fuschia but I think I am going to stick with ones I know I won't fall over in!  Good luck deciding.  I am also going to buy some cute flip flops that say my new married name for the reception.

I hope all you ladies had a very Merry Christmas and are ready to ring in our New "Wedding" Year!!  I am so anxious for May to get here!!  

 

I am starting my Get in Shape plan soon.  I only have a few pounds to lose but am setting a goal to be "in my best shape" for my wedding day, whatever weight that may be.  :o)

 

To our December 11th bride, congrats on becoming a MRS.  Glad to hear everything went well and I can't wait to read your review!

 

Mzgillis, I haven't got to view the video yet, b/c my computer doesn't have the appropriate viewer, so I"m very anxious to watch it tomorrow when I go back to work. I could totally get used to these short weeks!!

Hi Ladies - Hope you have all had a fabulous Christmas! I live in Wales and we had snow for the first time in years, its been lovely!

I have managed to set some time aside, finally, to continue with my wedding plans.........and have a few questions, if anyone has any answers I would really appreciate them!

 

1- If your choosing to have a 'private dinner' where can you choose to hold it? i have 25 guests and was hoping we could all sit togeather away from the hotel, on the beach or something nice and private! if anyone knows what the options are, please advise!

 

2- On the private dinner menu, can you pick and choose from any of the set menu's and have say a starter from menu 1, main from 2 and desert from 3?? typically all the options I like are not on the same menu!!

 

3- Is the cocktail hour (after ceremony) free?? where do you choose cocktails from or can you design your own?

 

If anyone can help on any of the 3 questions that would be great!! off to look at flowers now whilst im in the Wedding Mood!! thanks in advance x

Attached is a file that shows the Private Reception locations.  For the menu, I'm pretty certain you can not pick and choose from different menus.  I believe you can offer two separate options, but you have to notify the resort of each guests dinner preference prior to arrival.  The cocktail hour is not free, unless you have a GI consultant who can get you an incentive.  The pricing for that should be on the same banquet menu as the food. 

 

Hope this helps!

    • 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!
