Hilary's PV/LC Vendor Reviews

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the great review Hilary!! We are having our reception/ceremony at Las Caletas in March. I noticed that you had 6 bridesmaids. Did all of them go over with you early that day and get ready in the bridal suite? I have seven bridesmaids and I was wondering if it would get too crowded w/ everyone there. I really want to bring everyone though.

 

Thanks!!

Brit

Thanks Stephany! It's good to know that it won't be overcrowded. All my bridesmaids are really close and I wouldn't describe them as the most modest types, so I think sharing the shower won't be a problem!! :)

Sorry I've been MIA. There were 9 girls getting ready in the bridal suite at LC in hot as heck July while it was off and on showers outside (in other words, there were literally 9 girls in the room - not messing around outside or anything.) I wasn't ever crowded except for trying to share the mirror. I would just recommend bringing a hand mirror so girls can do their makeup on the couch. That's what my mom did, and it worked well. I do have it on my list of things to review the photographer and wedding day. I promise I'm going to do it as soon as I can!!!

Thanks Hilary! I think I'm going to bring over all of my 7 bridesmaids as well as my mom, so that makes 9. I'm having Fernando come to do my hair, so great tip on the mirrors. Can't wait to read the rest of your review!

Great to know. I have 6 bridesmaids, plus mom & photographer and was also wondering about crowding. Britt - I'm also considering Fernando so I can;t wait to hear about him and see your photos.

Def bring a mirror so you can see the back of your head when your hair is done. I bet Fernando does this, but just in case any other girls have someone else or do their own hair.

 

Also, I had 7 or 8 (I can't remember- ha) people getting ready the day of. Two of them were the groom and his BM. It was hard getting around one another, but nothing too stressful. No worries. :) Just take turns and make sure it's clear the bride is priority!

Exactly, Rachel...the bride definitely is the priority! :) But I'm glad to hear it won't be totally overcrowded. You used Elizabeth Lloyd for your photography, right? Did you have some ideas of shots that you gave her beforehand, especially with such a big bridal party? Or did she just do her thing? I just want to make sure that wedding party and family shots are not overlooked. Thanks!

 

Trisha - I believe Christina used Fernando for their hair, so you might want to check out her pictures. She was really happy with how it turned out and she looked beautiful! :)

I don't think we ever discussed that in much depth. She asked me if I wanted a group shot, so we did that. Then she asked if we wanted to family shots, so we did that. She just did her thing. I figured she knew better than me what to capture. I didn't really have much thoughts in that area. But if you have specific shots you REALLY want, I would suggest touching base with her to make sure you are on the same page. Def can't hurt. :) Btw- Beth is fantastic!

    • 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.
