We did everyone else, but completely forgot about the photographer. So if you throw some money at him that may help as well.
yeah, since you've been gone we have had clarification that the photographers services are for 2 hours.

As posted here http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...-30#post510062 I got in touch with them to ask the cost of more hours, and was told that for 6 hours it would be 980$, including 80 photos and no CD and they just further clarified this morning that that price is for somebody using the free wedding package (no photography). Somebody using the ultimate package they would deduct the value of what is already included, which they say is 450$ so it would cost you 430$ for the additional 4 hours of coverage (6 hours instead of 2) and the additional 30 photos (80 instead of 50). They will charge an additional 350$ for the CD. (I think, will update this tonight when I can reread that email, but it was definitely between 350-450$)

Question - do/did you include dinner for Landy and the DJ at your reception? I know to include Claudia Rodriguez (our photog), but not sure about the WC and resort DJ...?

I didn't include either, but I guess it is something to think about. The DJ was there setting up at around 4:30-5 so maybe I should have. And I guess Landy is working most of the time as well. Maybe ask Landy if other people include the DJ?

Question/Advice:

 

Makeup! I wear very Bare Escentuals everyday and have not planned to have anything special for the wedding. A friend of mine said I should think about buying heavier makeup for pictures such as Mac.

 

It seems like a waste of money to buy makeup for the one day. Also, if I decided to let the resort do my makeup how does that work?

 

Did anyone get their makeup done by the salon ? Do they use their makeup or yours? What brand is theirs?

 

Thanks gals!

Thanks for the ideas on the Parasols and the web site. I had not even thought about it before but I'm going to be in SF soon so I can buy them there! Thanks!

 

Cendcar, I was wondering the same thing on the make up. Great question. Hope someone can give us details :)

some girls have gotten their make-up done at the spa and been happy. Check out the info on page 1 (I actually only recently added hair and make-up there like a couple weeks ago).

Though both are fabulous--and fit you sooo nicely, I would go for the pronovias, especially if you are getting married on the beach. Either way though, you can't go wrong. Which one do you feel more excited about? Which do you feel more beautiful in? Picture yourself doing the day in each dress and which one just gets to you? Best of luck with the decision!

I am sorry, because I know this information is somewhere--but at this point I am bleary eyed... what are the dimensions of the round tables that are used for the receptions outside? THANKS!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
