Hey girls.. I have stayed at the Waldorf before and I have to say I was really very disapointed. The rooms are not what you would expect for the prestige. I have not issue with the modern look... I hoping that he will be looking at me and not the back ground. If we can get dreams for 200.00 with early check in then I think its a no brainer. I am more concerned with the lighting then anything...

Thanks Kristy!! I think that the Waldorf has just not 'aged' well... =)

I agree that if we can get Dream for $200; then why not? It looks amazing and Kamila is excited about the lighting etc...

I emailed her last night to get a timeline from her as to how the day will go so we can all plan our days. I will let you all know on this thread when I hear back from her.

Hi Ladies,

 

A few quick updates:

 

1) There will be another girl joining us. Her name is Shawn and she works with me! She is super sweet and is getting married in October 09. Not a destination wedding; so I can't bring her into our BDW family!

 

2) Kamila can get Dream Hotel... with the addition of Shawn its only an additional $17.25 per person. King size room, 285 sq ft, for $219.

 

3) Here is an idea of how the day would go.. personally, for me - I don't mind if you girls are there when my pics are done and like the idea that we can all hang out and drink champagne and relaz together... It will probably help me relax more if we are all just having fun. But, its a completely personal decision for everyone. I am good with however you all want to do this...

 

"We will start at about 11:30 - so the first girl can arrive at that time and start the hair/makeup process. The actual shoot will start at about 12:00ish, so the next girl can arrive at about 1:00, then about 2:00 and about 3:00 - if you want to be all separate and not have anyone else in the room at the same time as your shoot.

 

The last shoot I did in NYC the room was relatively small so Michelle had all her equipment set up in front of the bed, with plenty of room for me to move around, move my ligths around and pose etc. All of the girls arrived at once and just hung out, drank champagne and chatted - it was a good time. The girl that went last, after everyone else left, actually said that it was "more fun" when everyone was in the room cheering each other on and chatting and it made her feel more self-conscious to be alone in the room with just me and my cameras and lights!

 

If any of you feel very uncomfortable about being seen by others, you may want the later spot. I think you mentioned Shawn needs a later timeslot so she can arrive at 4:30 and be finished by about 6:00. However if you want to chat with other brides, listen to music and hang out drinking champagne etc - you can all arrive at once. The photo shoot is still just one person per shoot, so you get at least an hour of shooting devoted to each person."

 

Let me know what you all think!!!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?
