I brought Landy a bottle of wine and gave her $50,

 

The lady who did my hair, nails, and makeup...gave her 200 pesos (about $17).

 

We did not tip the photographer and I do not regret it.

Okay ladies, so 7 months later, here is my full length video!!!

 

My husband had to do something to change the format so I could read it in Windows Movie Maker, and then I used that software to chop it in 2 since youtube only allows 10 minute videos (it's 14 mins in total, so that is the length of a legal ceremony with our own vows added which added only a minute or two to the length). Then I uploaded both halves to youtube.

 

The video was done by Playaweddings. The sound quality is bad in the first few minutes because one of the sound sources (he used 2) wasn't connected, so when he did the editing he had no choice but to use the sound from Landy's mike. He explained that this is why it's beneficial to pay for 2 videographers so you have more footage and sound to work with when editing (a very good point that I had not considered before, not that it would have been in my budget to hire his assistant) So you hear Landy yelling orders as I walk down the aisle! You also hear the judge telling my husband he's suppose to stand on the other side, and he tells her we are doing the opposite so that the wind blows my veil backwards instead of in my face. Luckily the sound improves a couple minutes after the ceremony starts when he reconnected the other sound source.

 

The image quality is kinda crappy because of the way I saved it when I split it.

Okay ladies, I accidentally double posted last night and the one with the proper links was the one to get deleted and I can't edit the post anymore. Here are the links again:

 

SunBride's full length wedding video - Part 1

 

SunBride's full lenth wedding video - Part 2

 

And the 3 minute wedding highlights video (the whole reason I hired playaweddings instead of using the resort videographer) is linked in my signature below.

Stephanie your videos are lovely!

 

When I spoke with Landy during my site visit, she said there would be a minister conducting our symbolic ceremony in english...I'm hoping that's still the case, as I don't want Landy to be the one conducting our ceremony (folks aren't supposed to know its only symbolic!) and that it will in fact be in english because I wasn't planning on having anyone else up there to translate! I'll have to triple check this with Landy when my time get closer (and she responds to emails)

Does anyone know if the Ultimate Package includes chair covers for the reception or only for the ceremony?

We'll have 40, so I assumed we'd have to buy an additional 20 covers, or will it be 40? Will they set up the chairs for the reception with the bows, also? I know the table cloths are white with white napkins, but we want to bring overlays. Will they put those down on the table for us, along with any centerpieces? One final question... how much is it for colored napkins? Is it worth the additional cost or should we just go with white?

I believe you have to pay the $250 set-up fee for the ceremony regardless of what package you choose. This set-up fee include chair covers for ALL your guests at the ceremony and then they will move them to the reception for you. So no, you don't have to worry about an additional charge for chair covers.

You have to pay extra for the chair bows, unless you bring them yourself and in that case, they will put them on for free as part of the set-up fee.

If you bring your own overlays, they will put them on the tables for you for free, as well.

The COLORED napkins are (i believe) $3 each. We are going with the plain white napkins for no extra charge and will be bringing colored menu cards to add a punch of color on top of the white napkins. So for us the cost of adding colored napkins isn't worth it...

Hope that helps!!!

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • 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?
