    Thanks! You are always full of great information :)

    Check out my profile picture!!! I finally did it. What a pain to get this picture up here.

      You must be getting so excited!! I've heard she is incredible too, I'll definitely contact her but think she os out of our price range. Although, photography is super important... Hmm....

      Wondering if you ladies can help me out? I'm in a photocontest. To win you have to get the most votes on fb. Here's the link:
      Otherwise you can check him out Chris Schmitt
      As much as I complained about DH not being involved in any of the wedding plans, I would have gone crazy if it were the other way and he was in my face with his opinion all the time. QUOTE]

      I agree, I can’t complain too much, he would have driven me INSANE if he ever argued with what I wanted to tried to push in his own creative side… yeah no.

      Liked your photographer & your photo! I hope you win!!!
      LMAO you are too funny!

      So, she sends me the link. But it's only for USA brides. (I'm Canadian and although my fiance is American he lives here in Vancouver w/ me - but 1/2 our guests are coming from the USA... so I don't understand if we could still qualify). So... she sends me the link to Canadian promotions. And there's a GREAT Canadian bride & groom stay free promotion - - it applies to every Karisma hotel EXCEPT AS!!! aaaargh. I'm hoping that we might be able to negotiate out some kind of combo of the two promotions or something?!?

      Anyone around here had any luck with their negotiations with the WC's at Karisma? I just want what I think is fair - since it seems to be offered to almost every other bride. And I'm in kind of a bizarre situation with the Canadian/American stuff. Suggestions anyone? TIA
      So sorry to hear this! Hope you get it all worked out.

      3) claudia photo

      We ended up finding someone locally in Toronto, who we are flying down with us. His name is Taylor Jackson, and I am loving his work.

      I know that when we discussed not using the resort photographers, we were told it would be $500US, and it had to be an approved photographer. Or someone who was staying at resort (although they did not provide how long that person might have to be staying.)
      I was told by my WC that they either had to pay the outside vendor fee ($500) or stay three nights. I figured the vendor fee would end up being less, so I was trying to look for Mexican photogs, however, if I really like someone I'll definitely be willing to fly them down!

      I think we would be able to use Claudia without the vendor fee, so I am seriously considering her!

I cannot wait till I am done planning!

      One of the things we made was the fake mustache and lips as props for our guest picture book. It was so much fun!!!

      Do any of you ladies have recommendations for wording for our invites. They're a little formal so I'm thinking the wording should be formal too? Let me know what you think.

      Linz, you are so on a roll girl! Your invites and pre-mailer were amazing. Good work! I cant wait to see how cute everything else is for your wedding!

      Glad everyone who hasn't heard of it is going to try Old Bay. I love it on baked potatoes and chicken too. I've found it in NC, MA, and now Bermuda so I am sure New Orleans has it somewhere! Its the best on shrimp too - I even add it to tuna salad. :-)

      I keep checking Claudia's website for my pro pics and still nothing - its been over 7 weeks - I am dying to see my slide show & wanted to show it to everyone this Saturday at the AHR.
      I hope you get them in time! Maybe if you email her and let her know you wanted to show them off she'll expedite the process!

        Wow, you ladies have been busy. Love the invitations that have been done... and way to go on those premailers Linds! Amazing.

        I just found out one of our guests (a friend from work) booked a trip to AS for this week. A last minute sale - she says she'll take pics of anything I want and go check it all out. Anyone have any requests they'd like to pass on? I'll have to think of exactly what I want to know about. I feel like there's so much information on this forum tho' that I don't really know what I'll need her to look into. :-) Still, fun to have a scout.

We spent sooo much time trying out different wording when we probably should have been doing something else!

            Speaking of your invites, love them!!! They're very classy and bright. Did you go with the colors shown on Etsy or customize your own?
            Thanks for the advice ladies! I will keep it simple. I found some wording last night that ties in with the proposal. It talks about journeys. So, I think I'm gonna use that.

            Wendy - we did customize. The gatefold and envelope will be bronze and the bellyband and rhinestones will be purple.

            Do you think you can email her and try to at least get an electronic copy so you can make a slide show or something? I'd hate for you not to be able to show off your wedding to the people who couldn't go.

            Congrats!!
            Thanks!!! I am not mailing anything to Mexico then... the towels are really taking a lot of room than we have expected. I can't really divide the luggages between my family members and friends since they are all flying from different locations. We are the only one in Houston! I guess we have to figure out how many bags we can actually check in between two of us.
            Didn't you mention that you're going to have a shower or a bachelorette party? Maybe you can bring your towels with you and give them out of others to bring then.

            My main concern is the food. Ask her to take notes and tell you her favs.

              Chong & Beaz2be - It's nice to finally put faces with names. I'm glad you girls figured it all out (posting your avatars). I know it was a pretty trying experience for me.

                  Question... did you guys wear spanx under your wedding dress? My designer is telling me I MUST wear one in order to look flawless under the dress... but I am not sure where to buy one. He knows someone who sells nice spanx and costs around $200. Do you think it's too much? I don't want to buy a cheap kind and end up regretting when I see the pictures. Any recommendations?

                    Chong - Don't act like you don't know me if you do see me!! Lol.

                    Spanx? I know you can get them from Saks, Dillard's, etc. I don't think it should cost that much. I would say it may run you around $100 max for a good pair unless he knows something I don't. There are knock-offs that may not work as well but if you stick to the Spanx brand you should be fine. There's also a brand named Flexees (Macy's) that are pretty good too. Looks like you need to go undergarment shopping and see what's the most comfortable for you. Bring them with you when you have your dress fitting and see which works best.

                    Check out ShopStyle for Fashion and Designers - Shoes, Jewelry, Dresses & Clothes and type in Spanx and all the different styles and where to buy them will come up. HTH!

                      I was wondering if anyone that did the Sky Deck can tell me the info for tuning in to the live stream on our wedding day? I wanted to include this in our invites but STILL haven't gotten a response from a WC.
