HAIR APPOINTMENTS

 

I was wondering how far in advance you girls made or are making appointments to get your hair done at the salon. Do we do this with the WC? Or does the spa have a specific email?

 

Thanks :)

Hi Sonia,

Congrats on your wedding..you were beautiful.

 

I know you are not doing a full review..so a few questions.

How many guests?

Did you do just 2 long tables and you and hubby sat in the middle of one?

What i am especially looking forward to is getting pictures back from our photographer. After looking at the portfolios and price lists of many different photographers we went with Misha Earle, and could not be happier with her work. Many people in our wedding party and interested in varying degrees of photography and were impressed with her fun professionalism and picture setups. If you are still looking for a photographer, please please PLEASE  go take a look. She is worth the bit extra money.

 

As for dindin...Calabash was fab, great food that even the foodies were happy with. We paid extra for wine, so it would not be the house stuff which i think complemented the meals perfectly. We didnt privatize the Calabash so we had the 800 to play around with. Because of the way we laid out the tables, in two rows, and where they positioned us, we didnt see any of the other guests. Perfect.

 

 

I could give a formal review, but i do feel that they get a bit repetitive.. we all know its a great place, that is why we chose it!

ohhh, one thing i did that seems different than other brides: i went with the bridal package from the spa- $300. first off, i think it was one of the better facials i have ever had, and the pricing for that is over $100 in itself, so once you add a manipedi, hair and makeup on it...it all is quite reasonable.. my hair (without a test) turned out better than i could have imagined, and did not move in the high winds...i went with all up, and am very happy that i did. makeup, i thought was a bit on the heavy side..but then it started to settle in to the skin and was perfect. sadly i had a little bit of a tear fest in the room when my sister was adjusting one of my earrings (all of those happy bridal moments), and i kinda smeared my make up...makeup team met me at the beach to repair...Love them.

 

me thinks..thats it..

Just an FYI....I just received my real touch flowers from the website  www.afloral.com I received them in three days after ordering! I am extremely happy with them! I have 6 bridesmaids and decided it would cut costs doing real touch bouquets. I ordered 6 pre-made bouquets of pink/white orchids, I ordered 6 bright pink lotus flowers to add into the bouquet. I also ordered two stems of orchids to make boutonnieres for the groomsmen. I ordered a few extra lotus flowers maybe to add to my bouquet. I believe I paid just under $120 (including shipping).  photo-1.JPG

Hi there, thanks for posting these :) I was looking at the same pre-made bouquets, are they a pretty good size? Do they look real? And were they more ivory than the pics online? And last q, were they shipped from the US to Canada? Thanks very much!!

Hey....I think the size is perfect for a bridesmaid bouquet, I was happy with how real they look, they are the real touch material, not a fabric/silk material. They are a bit more ivory in colour than what they advertise on there website, I am going to re-do them a bit by adding in the pink lotus flowers. My girls dresses are a bright fuchsia /coral colour so I don't mind a bit of the ivory. They shipped from US to Canada with FedEx, delivered right to the door, no duty tax and within three days.

 

Would definitely recommend!! Hope this helps!!!

I'm getting really frustrated with this florist thing.  I think I am going to pursue the idea of trying to get a new florist and getting Silvia to let me do it.  It's unacceptable that I've sent 2 emails asking a simple question and can't get a simple answer.  Either way, it seems like my money is not going there, I'll get artificial flowers if I need to.

Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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 :)
