Your right...as long as she is staying 3+ nights theres no outside vendor fee.  Regarding cost of travel...will you be booking her flights/room, or will she book it and charge you for it?  The "traveling costs" can get you if you dont know how much itll be in advance.

 

$1000 is a great price...especially if you like her style and own the rights.  At my vegas wedding, they tried to charge me $900 for the rights to my photos (and it was only 45 minutes of photography...50 photos!).  Needless to say, i did NOT purchase the rights to them.

 

Do you have more details of everything included with the package?  Sounds like a great deal! 

 

Also, maybe check with others getting married before or after you in case they want to share travelling costs :)

We would book her flight and hotel room. Her flight is around $418 plus 3 nights hotel room would come out to right around $1000. So Im thinking this is a good deal. She is a really nice lady, and I know another bride whose wedding she shot in Cabo last August.

Hi ladies I did not have a private reception - I did the basic spoon restaurant package which is included and the food was GREAT. We got to chose our menu. I did see a few private receptions by the pool which was cute but to be honest it's a lot of money for a private event and your guests may head in early because it's a long day. I did have a private cocktail hour on the beach for my guests. It was $150 for 20 of us and the food was fantastic. Just got basic appetizers but they were filling. It also included our our private bartender for 2 hours. Worth the money. We brought an iPod and our own mini speakers for music As for the wedding music I brought my iPod and they played the music for me. You will need 4 songs, the procession for you and for groom, for the signing of the documents plus sand ceremony and for the end. I gave the wedding planners my iPod the day of. For anyone wanting a down hairdo I would suggest against it. I wanted a down do but it was way to wind for it and even the spa suggested I do an up do. For gift bags we did a welcome letter, a bag in our colors, SPF lip balm, a wedding passport book, personalized plastic mugs for drinks, fans, water, gum, disposable waterproof cameras and SPF sunblock. The big hit was the cameras and sunblock. All our guests forgot sunblock and ALL of the eventually needed it. Premium room amenities was our own swim up pool and hot tub on the patio, aromatherapy every night, personal concierge which came in handy, aromatherapy bath products picked by us, premium guest cocktail hour and immediate service. If you can splurge I would splurge on the premium swim up jacuzzi suite. SO SO SO worth it.

TLGnchi - your before & after pictures are amazing! You really worked it out girl :) What type of workout schedule did you have? How far in advance did you start? I am going to be traveling for work the next 3 months. So will only have 8 weeks before the wedding to kick my butt into shape. I'm not too worried about it because I just need to tone up! But seriously you should be proud of yourself!!

Congrats on finding a great deal for a photographer!!  That's awesome, and a big one in my opinion!! :o)

 

Thank you so much for the compliment!!  I have been working out religiously for years but the wedding really prompted me to amp it up!  The first step is eating better (or should I say, just not eating whatever I want, when I want).  I just try to incorporate more good foods, yogurt, fruits, healthy snacks (since I'm a serious snacker) and cut back on the chocolate.  I ate pretty healthy as far as meals already.  The before pic was taken in January which was when I really started focusing on losing some weight for the wedding.  My friend and I started this "wedding bootcamp."  It's essentially the following:  Start with a warm up to get your muscles warm, like walking lunges, squats or something.  Then do abs, say 3 exercises in sets.  Then we would do weights.  We never really followed this completely but I have learned that heavy weights are better than the light and more reps option.  This part of the program is about 45 minutes.  Then, we go and do about 30 minutes of cardio.  I have also been doing a class once a week that is a killer with tons of cardio.  For the last month I have gotten in the habit of going to the gym 5 days a week, where before 3 was my tops.  So, while I have kinda started eating bad again, I have four and a half weeks to go so I gotta get back to it!! 

 

I lost almost 8 pounds since January, and I didn't have too much to lose so it's been great.  I am very happy with the changes!! :o)

    • 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. 
    • 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!
