Thanks ladies... I remember some of you saying that it was hard to use all of the resort credit, so I started thinking that it would be a waste for me to spend cash on things they can use their credit for.  I already bought them this necklace from Kohls:

and was thinking about buying them a clutch to match their dresses made by someone on Etsy... 

 

and maybe a personalized lounge chair cover/towel ... they are supposed to hook onto the back of the chair and they have a pocket to keep your things in.  Do you think this would be useful for them at the resort???

I hired Fernando for hair and make up so I paid for all my girls to get hair and make up done. I also purchased personalized bridemaids tanks online. Hair and makeup were pretty pricey so thats all I got them. I purchased my moh a personalized makeup bag and a white gold necklace to show my appreciation for all she did for me. But thats really it.

 

Heres a pic of my girls:

I do have 6 bridesmaids so I have to watch how much I spend on them.

hey girls..sort of non-resort question for you...


What did you ladies do for your BM gifts?  I was going to just pay for all of my girls to get mani/pedis at the spa and spend the morning there before the wedding, but I'm thinking with the resort credit it might make sense for them to use their credit for that and me to get them something else?  I was told I can't use my credit on anyone but myself, so I'd be paying cash for them.  Regardless, I already bought them starfish necklaces, but I was thinking maybe it would be better to get them a few more things for a regular gift and just let them use their resort credit for mani/pedis?  What do you think?

I think I would want my girls to have similar hair styles (that 'off to the side' look)!!  Where did you get their tank tops from!? I LOVE them!

Nicole- did you give your girls their bags ahead of time? I worry about all of the stuff we are taking down already.

 

I know a lot of times, you can find the Old Navy or even Gap tanks at Giant Tiger for a fraction of the price. The tags have been crossed out but at $5 a piece or less you can't complain!

 

I bought those same transfers and am trying to decide what to put them on. I want to try to find some sort of zip up top to wear on the day of the wedding so that no one messes up their hair and makeup.

Question for you previous brides...

 

How long did it take to do the dances, speeches, garter, bouquet toss, cake cutting and all the other things that need to get done and photographed?  Reason I ask is because I am on a tight budget and I need to figure out how many hours to book the photographer.  I can really only afford 4 hours but with 1 hour of pre-wedding I am not sure everything will get covered.

 

Ceremony - 4pm

Reception - 6pm

 

Thoughts??

Im a party girl so I wanted to get all the little wedding traditions out of the way asap so we can party the rest of the night. It probably took about 10-15min for the first dance, father/daughter dance and the mother/son dance. Afterwards, we started dinner and as people were finishing dinner, the bestman and moh made their speeches. Dinner probably lasted about 20-25min. We let people dance a little more then got right into the garter removal/toss and bouquet toss. That was about 10-15min. After a little more dancing we cut the cake, which probably lasted 5min.

 

If you do the speeches before dinner then get into the garter removal/toss, bouquet toss and cake cutting, you might be ok with time. Its hard because no matter how much you want things to be on schedule, they never are. :(

Thanks for the info...it did help.  Im hoping that once it gets closer some extra money miraculously appears and we can afford to do 5 hrs.  I really don't want to feel rushed and I want everything captured.  If all else fails I'll forgo the TTD to get the extra wedding day hours.
