    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? If only for the ceremony, will they move the chair covers to the reception area chairs or do you need to purchase chair covers for those chairs, as well. The Ultimate Package covers for 20 people. 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!!!
