    Welcome Love3!

    I have to give credit to all you girls who are doing BD shoots. I don't think I have guts to do it!

      I looked into a BD shoot and it was $250 for a 1 hour shoot with make up and a 8x8 book.

          For our photos we're going with CANCUN STUDIOS. I didn't want to spend a whole lot on the pictures and Cancun Studios has packages that were within my budget. The only bummer is I haven't been able to find too many reviews on them. I did find a couple though and there wasn't really any negative comments so I figured that was a good thing.
          I have the date and time booked. As well as the location of our ceremony. Wednesday the DJ will be booked.Rehearsal dinner is booked.Taking all our guests and bridal party to the mexican fiesta after rehearsal.The dinner location and menu have been chosen.The cake was ordered 3 weeks ago.Need to choose location of reception.Dont have a photographer yet.They are all so pricey.I`ll look into ur photographer if u dont mind.Any questions u have, I`ll be glad to help. Also we could share ideas if u`d like...

            I would surely like. I can't believe how much you have done. Now I'm nervous that I'm so far behind. I have a couple of questions for you already.

            1. Mexican Fiesta night, is that the one that is on Thursday? We're getting married on Thursday and just found out we're going to be too small of a group to have a private so I thought that I would pay for everyone to go there. Is that tacky? Lame? Or a good idea?

            2. How many people are you going to have including you and your FI? I'm trying to decide if I should do a rehearsal dinner or pay for everyone to go on an excursion to Xel Ha (Which is my favorite place to go).

            As for the photographer, I agree, too expensive. To me the pictures are important but I want to make sure my guests are happy too. That being said I can't afford to pay thousands for my pictures. I can send you the pricing list of their packages if you'd like. Just PM me with your e-mail address.

            Thanks for the help!

              The photographer I'm selecting is $300 for the sitting fee and $500 for the album. Is this resonable?

              How much is everyone paying for the total BD shoot?

              This may sound crazy but I'm getting mine done for free. Someone on here suggested looking for a photographer that is looking to build their boudoir portfolio because they're likely to give you a deal. I did and I found one that is going to do it for FREE!! I did research them before booking and I like what I have seen and I'm comfortable with my decision.

              It doesn't include makeup or hair or a book but it does include all the photographs edited on CD with no copyrights.

              Today is the big day so I will let all you ladies know how it goes (all the details) when it's all said and done.

                That's what we did with our engagement pictures and I couldn't have been happier! It's so great to get stuff for free when you're paying so much for everything else!!!

                I'm doing my boudior for $350. It's 1 hour of shooting, hair & make-up, and $100 credit toward a product of my choice. I'm doing a marathon session so I think that's a little cheaper than just hiring the photographer full out.

                    Ugh. I have so much to do still:

                    Done-
                    Dress/groom attire
                    Wedding Bands
                    Location/Flights
                    All invited guests are booked
                    BD shoot is done-book should be here in a few weeks
                    Wedding jewelry selected
                    Photographer booked/deposit paid

                    To do-
                    groom shoes
                    barefoot sandals
                    announcements
                    OOT bags (DIY)-this will take a while
                    4 week travel package for guests (DIY)0-this also will take a while
                    pick colors
                    buy tulle for arch in colors and other arch decorations
                    buy arch or build my own (in progress)
                    DIY chair decorations of some sort
                    assemble pictures of family members that will be "watching from above" for details shots with the photographer
                    put together short list of pictures I want to make sure photographer takes
                    figure out what to do with my hair
                    figure out what to do with my make up
                    write vows
                    pick music
                    put together guest book or scrapbook for guests to contribute to

                    My budget so far:

                    Hotel/Flights $5200
                    Rings $3000 (?)
                    Attire $1200 +
                    Photographer $1800
                    Resort Fees $700
                    BD Photos $900 (under budget :-)
                    Misc decor $1500+

                    Total: $14300

                    I'm guessing this will be close estimating the mics stuff at $1500. I'm actually hoping that will be a really high estimate since the DIY projects should be really inexpensive but I'm shooting higher just in case. Considering this includes the E-Ring, Wedding AND honeymoon I think I'm doing really good :-)
