Very nice pics Daisy!! Congrats! Question where did you do your TTD on the Iberostar property or off property? And also I loved that you & your hubby got to dance under the stars on the beach. Priceless!

For brides that did the TTD the day after their wedding, whereabouts did your photographer take you? Did you stay on the Iberostar resort, go to Dunn's River Falls, where? I'm trying to gather ideas of where I want our photographer to take us. Please share! Thanks!

We did our ttd at the resort.  We walked up by the "beach" resort because there were more trees for shade and we didn't want our family and friends watching every move we made (they were all still in the pool!).  I didn't really want to leave the resort and take time away from our guests when we only had a few days with them. If you have a good photographer, he/she can work around the people, chairs etc. I was worried about chairs and stuff when she was shooting but then you don't even notice it in the photos.

For the other bride who asked, my dress was Watters with a Lazaro sash. My TTD was BCBG which I got from ebay for less than $100.  I washed it on handwash cycle and it's as good as new even after being in the salt water. I may wear it again if we have a at home reception.

Thanks Daisy. I figured if anything we would head to the beach resort as well for more privacy. Hopefully our photographer can do it really early in the morn. I want to be able to enjoy our day after wedding breakfast delivery to the room. What time was your breakfast delivered & what time was your TTD session?

We actually did our TTD just before sunset the night before (which is why I wore a dress completely different from my wedding dress).  At this time of day, everyone is pretty much off the beach and out of the pools. My photographer had to catch a flight home early the next morning so doing it before hand was our only option.

CONGRATULATIONS I ABSOLUTELY LOVE EVERYTHING...where was your reception?

 

Looks like I am in your boat as far as TTD. The day before or not at all with my photographer. How was it doing it the day before? Any advice? I feared my Groom seeing me in white before the wedding, but you have to do what you have to.

Yes, I felt the same way at first.  However, i just went on the hunt for a dress that didn't look too much like a wedding dress.  I looked for something that would just look good in the water. It was just a long white gown and didn't feel like a wedding dress to me. I just thought of it as a romantic photo shoot rather than trashing the wedding dress. It was kind of fun to do it the day before, we didn't have to worry about waking up to deadlines the next day.  All of the stress was over, and we just got to relax after our wedding day. If you do it the day before, you'll just have to be careful when you book your rehearsal dinner so that you are not too rushed (we were a little rushed).  I don't remember exactly what time our rehearsal dinner was but I remember I had to run back to the room and get ready and changed for that pretty quickly. The pictures took longer than I had anticipated.

 

I am trying to write the review right now and it's quite lenghtly. I hope I do not have a word limit or I am in trouble!  I feel like I am leaving so many things out. I hope to have it posted by tomorrow evening. I remember having so many questions before I left so I hope I can answer some questions for everyone else in my review.  Feel free to pm me if  you want to ask a question.

Some of the other reviews look pretty long, so it seems they allow quite a bit of info. Thanks for taking the time to write such a thorough review I know all of us brides will very much appreciate it!

BTW, you looked beautiful on your wedding day! Gorgeous pics! Thanks for sharing!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
