sammysgirl - we didn't have chair covers at all, I like the just white and because we had 2 different colors for the wedding party it would be too much I think. The chair covers came with the Caprice wedding package that we got.

 

ShellK - Your meeting should NOT be the day of your wedding, I would let the wedding coordinator know this. Our meeting was Tuesday and we were married Thursday.

Ah!! I'm supposed to get automatic email notifications if someone posts in this thread...so i thought no one had been chatting. sorry for my delay but here are my answers!

 

Lisa- I didnt get all my shower thank-you's out either, and my shower was over a month before my wedding, so don't feel bad! I'd send a combo...just make it extra nice!

Josie- where are your BM dresses from, and their shoes?? I really love them! Did you take the matching chair bows your self?

I got my BM dresses at JC Penny for $25 dollars a piece!!!!!!!! They were amazing!! It was seasonal though so I don't think they have those exact ones anymore....but I'd definitely check the department stores. Especially during prom/homecoming and the other high school dance events. All of my bm's were tiny...so i was able to get these from the juniors department!

 

The girls got their own shoes... i just told them "gold"...so you can probably tell from the pics that the shoes did not all match!

 

Also yes, i brought the chair bows down, and still have them if you want. I have about 55 orange ones. They were small and easy to pack!

i was wondering what you girls are doing / did in terms of the photographer. Did you just use the one they recommended or did you bring your own. I was kind of hoping to bring in an outside photographer and was told it would be 100$ for a day pass for them.. however i never really realized how much wedding photographers are.... what do you guys think is a reasonable budgethuh.gif

 

also about the reception i remember that some of you girls are having a private reception with a dj. i'm worried that my guest count wont be enough for a private reception and i dont want to pay extra if i just have 25 people. but then again i dont want to miss out on the first dance and father daughter dance.... any ideas?

 

Lynn

Yes, I brought my own chair bows (not the white covers though, those are provided) :) I also brought the fans down which i thought was a beautiful touch... everyone LOVED them!

 

My photographer was flown in and I DID NOT pay any $100/day fee. I simply told the resort that my guests were photographers and would be taking my pictures, and they never charged me! I would go that route if you're planning to fly someone down. I won a BDW contest so I just had to pay for flight and hotel, I had 2 photographers and it ended up being around $1400 total which I think was very reasonable! But depending on what you want, you can spend up to 5 or 6K. I didn't want to go over 2, but that is just me personally!

 

In terms of the private reception. They will work with you. Even if you have a small guest count I'm sure they'd still do a private reception. The DJ was one of the best parts of my entire night and I couldnt imagine my wedding without him....... he was a BLAST!!!!!!!! So don't sacrifice :)

 

josie,thanks for the videos you have got me thinking again do i book it or not.you wicked wife you.did you use the spa for makeup?

I'm sorry I forgot to answer this earlier! Yes I did the make up and I really liked it! But then again, I suck at putting on make-up so I probably would have been happy with just about anything. They let you pick your eye-shadow shade so don't worry about it being too drastic!! I think you will be very happy if you do it. It was a big relief to me and my make-up lasted the entire day and even withstood cake being smashed ALL OVER my face!!

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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.
