    Hey girls! Just got back from my Boudoir shoot... and it was so much fun!! I loved it!! I can't wait for the shots to come back now... 2-3 weeks..

    You know what the worst part is?? My fiance guessed what I was doing the day before... erg... he's to smart sometimes that man!!! Oh well he's still not going to see any of the pics or the album until I am ready to give it to him as his wedding present!!! And Jen I am so jealous... only a week!!!!

      I know.....one week. Crazy! I think he will LOVE the shots, even if he knows. It almost makes it better to build anticipation and to get his mind going ; )

      I'm all packed and ready to go. Had to go in for another alteration on the dress yesterday and - thank goodness - she'll have the dress ready in two days and she's charging me next to nothing.... Phew.

      Had my hair trial today and hoping it stands up in the heat....I took pictures and I'm printing them out to bring to the salon at the resort so that they can see what I want. I'm really glad I did the trial. Phew!!

      I also printed out all my emails from Valeria, my final contract for the wedding and backing up any music that we're bringing down.

      The list is smaller and smaller now with only a few little things to get done. Lots of appoints this week though.....pick up dress, hair appointment to get highlights, dentist appointment, get my ring replated...oh...and finish planning the wedding. It's too bad all of my things require me to be there otherwise I would enlist some help!

      Oh well......I hope you uys are less busy the week before your big day!

          Sorry thought of another question that my fiance's mom has been bugging me to find out about... its the transfers from the airport to the resort... how did that go Nicky? What all did you pay and what did you get a bus or van? Did you prepay it or when you all got there just found a couple of vans and paid the price onsite? What about you Jen... what are you planning on doing for that?? If you girls could let me know that would be great!
          Thanks!

            I booked my transfers direct through the lomas travel site. I know some of our guests booked transfers direct with our travel agent.

            The trip through Lomas was $47 USD round trip and is on a basic bus. You can upgrade if needed...

            Also, I know Lomas can provide a private bus or private van for you for larger groups. There's a cost, but I would talk to Valeria about arranging that.

                Hey Nicky... I have to ask you about the photographer... How many shots did you end up getting? I was looking at the Lomas website thinking I wanted to do their photo package 3, but am trying to determine if we need all those photos printed that they mention on there. Did you have any printed by them or did you just get a cd with all the shots on it?
                I am trying to determine which shots you didn't get, like it includes bride getting ready, ceremony, bride and groom, wedding party, cocktail, family and reception.. I wanted to get groom getting ready and some on the beach and pier with just us the bride and groom.. how many hours did you book them for? I was thinking about the 5 hours because it would be a good timeline for when we are getting ready up until the reception? What are your thoughts? Or anyone elses thoughts on this? 5 hours to short to long?? Any advice would help me out! I am trying to book them as our photographer but may try and reduce the cost if we can... let me know ladies! Thanks!

                  Hey Tracy I thought I would chime in because I just finished scheduling with Jen for her big day and have been peering into this thread from time to time. 5 hours seems ok if you want coverage up to the reception but you may not be able to fit in your first dance and cake cutting into it as well. To get one photographer to cover both yourself and the groom getting ready there are normally two options: 1) groom gets ready first, or 2) There is enough down time in between hair/makeup/dressing of the bride for the photographer to quickly head over to the grooms place to get pictures. Grooms pictures of getting ready can take as little as 10-15min. We guys get ready quickly.
                  Make sure the package says you get a CD of all your images. This way you may be able to get someone you know to touch up a few of them for you as I know most resort photographers don't do too much of that.

                  Hope that helps
