Please let me know what do you think...
Warm Regards

So we are really screwed!! Has anyone downgraded on the packages? Maybe thats what we can do just go the level down to at least put that extra 1000$ or so towards a photog sad.gif it really sucks!! We pay so much money and its like i feel like we dont get anything but some white seat covers and a part of the lobby sad.gif Sorry im just frustrated!!
I hired a photographer out of Dallas. He gave me a great deal and he did my rehearsal dinner, wedding day and TTD. They credited the price of the photographer to the sound system for the ceremony and a few other things. So, I did have to come up with the extra money for my photographer BUT I got a lot more out of the money I would have been spending on the resort photographer. Contact Wedding and Portrait Photography by Jeremy Gilliam Dallas TX he can give you a price or maybe help you find someone that will fit in with your budget.

It seems as though we are all having the same problem with photographers. I have contacted several who are all booked for my wedding date. My opinion is that Claudia's photographs are less than acceptable...especially for how much she charges. But everyone has their own taste, maybe Im just being too picky. (Rightfully so if I am paying thousands of dollars for great memories.)

I did a lot of researching for photography and found a lot of deals that were better than those that you can hire down there. I just happened upon Jeremy and I loved his work.

I lucked out and found someone who was already going to be in the DR training another photographer! She is also discounting big time!! Now I just have to convince FI to squeeze a photographer into the budget!! LOL

Hey Kat..How does that work? Do you pay for his trip and then your Wedding package also?
I would think that would be more Expensive, right?
I'm just getting really aggravated about not hearing back from these photgraphers and I am open to all options!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
