When I came back from the beach for the gazebo reception I switched the shoes.

 

I have done the  wedding dress trial with both shoes and since difference was only 2-3 cms, it suits well with both the solutions.

That's a great idea!  I was afraid I wouldn't be able to walk in the sand with wedges.  Did you have any trouble with that?  Can you share a picture of the wedges?   Thanks!!

Newloves-I know this is directed at Cri, but just for info, I had the sound system on the beach. I had 20 guests and don't think anyone would have heard anything without it. It stormed really bad earlier that day and was pretty windy. The veil wasn't a problem though. A bridesmaid can tuck it into the back of your dress when you get up there if it's super windy and it won't blow and will look normal from the front. Just let them know before the ceremony to keep an eye for it blowing everywhere.

 

Also, speaking of sound system, etc. I remember a few people saying they would use an ipod and ipod dock for their sound system during the reception. Just some food for though here.

We brought an ipod and good quality ipod dock with loud volume to use for the bonfire on the beach. It was pointless. There was a wedding reception going on at the wedding gazebo and they had a DJ. You couldn't hear ours and it just sounded like a mess trying to play it while the DJ was playing at the reception. If there isn't a reception you will be fine...otherwise it's just pointless. We were fine listening to the DJ music though.

 

We did our reception at the Barracuda Terrace. It's just on the opposite side of the pool from the wedding gazebo. There was another reception that started shortly after mine at the gazebo. The DJ's will work to make sure one doesn't drown out the other, but if you had an ipod dock (no sound system) you will basically be out of luck. The DJ music is very loud and it will drown out any ipod dock imo. I was soooooo glad that I chose the DJ because our reception would have been completely different. Just keep that in mind, and maybe check to be sure that there aren't 2 wedding receptions going on at those locations at the same time if you are planning to bring an ipod dock and not use the resort sound system or DJ. If you have the DJ it isn't a problem at all. They will communicate with each other to get the right volume so that one isn't heard over the other. The DJ/MC made the reception the awesome party that it was though, so if it's in the budget I would go for that. We just used the resort DJ and were glad we did.

Beachbride- Thank You! This helps out a ton! I wasn't planning on bringing an iPod dock but I was really considering just using my iPod and renting the sound system. If I manage to get more guests confirmed I want to get the dj. I didn't even consider the possibility of 2 wedding receptions going on at the same time. I wonder what happens if both brides wanted to use the resort dj, would it be on a first come first serve basis?

They should have more than one DJ/MC. I think the other wedding that was going on during mine used the resort DJ as well. It's just a company that the resort uses I think. I don't think the resort actually owns the DJ company. For mine, there was one MC who was awesome and dressed very nice in dress clothes, and he had 2 other guys with him helping with the equipment and lighting. They were wearing black polos and black slacks. They looked very professional. The DJ also had some colored lights too. I didn't have to pay anything extra for that and it all looked great. When my reception was over, the other was still going on. Their DJ/MC sounded really good too.

Did you have a sound system? And was the ocean very loud and windy?

 

 

Yes, I have taken sound system for the ceremony, I wanted my guests (and us) hear the ceremony and also the music.

They are very good with the sound system, when I arrived from the room to the beach, Cecilia stopped me just before the beach corner, behind the bushes,  then she has given the ok to start my song.

In that moment, the technician has started the music and he moved the sound system in my direction in order I could hear the music.

I wanted Canon D not at the beginning but in the happiest part  (where the violins start playing) and they have done!!

All the days are windy in the beach so the sound system is suggested.

As regard the veil , I have worn it, it was short and I have choosen a model that was behind the shoulders because I didn't want it over my fase and also because I wanted  also a flower on the side.

 

A small detail, if the bride is to the left, the wind is of forehead and the veil it ripples toward the back!

I didn't have any trouble to walk in the beach, to be honest it was raining  before the ceremony and probably the wet sand helps me.

In any case, I sugget you to walk slowly, this will allow to walk without problem and also to enjoy the moment.

 

Here the picture of the wedge but they were hidden from the the dress

I don't have my professional photos still, but have quite a few that were taken by friends at our wedding posted to my facebook account. If you would like to view them, PM me. I have some of my hair which was done at the spa, my make-up which was done at the spa, you can see the basic ceremony set up (without any additional decor other than my ivory chair sashes), and the barracuda terrace where the cocktail hour and reception were held.

I would like create a shorter version of the wedding video, only 3-4 minutes with the main parts (A video similar as the video that we can find for example in Mike Cantarell web site)

Do you know if there are any free program to cut and sew my original video changing also the music?

 

Thank you so much for your help

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.

    • Hi, I am getting married after one year. I have tons of planning to do and very little time. Planning a wedding can be difficult especially when there is less time. I have to do a lot of things on my own and at the same time work overtime to earn more money. Recently when I was hanging out with my close friends, I noticed that my friend who had crooked teeth like mine had perfect teeth now. I was surprised to see that I asked her that what did you do for a sudden change. She said that she tried Invisalign braces and had a change with her smile within a short time. I told about this to my bf and he also told me to give a try for it. I took an appointment with a dentist in Aurora. I don't know whether there will be a  change within a short time. What can you say on this? Am I taken a good decision?
    • Hi, I'm in a relationship with a guy who is in my college. He is planning to migrate from our area and he wants to marry me before he leaves. He is well planned for our marriage. He accompanied me for all the wedding shopping and was supporting me a lot. But there was an unexpected accident and I fell down hitting the floor. I was taken to the nearby clinic for getting the emergency dental care  from a clinic in Toronto. My front canine was lost after the accident and I think I need to get dentures before my wedding. Or according to your opinion what can be done other than dentures?
    • Hi all!  My daughter who's portrait, lifestyle, fashion, family photographer for over 5 years now is willing to expand into the wedding photography and videography. She's working really hard and I want to support her as much as I can. Does anyone could use a 2nd shooter in their wedding? She would deliver all digital photos with no cost. Just so she could start building up her portfolio. Who could say no to free high quality photos and video?? I can share her current porfolio if anyone is interested.
