When to give BD book?

Recommended Posts

I bought Matt one of the little books from MyPublisher | Create your own Photo Book with MyPublisher and receive a published hardcover book! b/c I got mine doen on 05/06/08, but we were leaving on the 14th or something. So there was no time to get a real book done. I actually like the one I made and it was perfect for that. I think I will make a more elaborate one for him soon, but that did the trick for the gift. Plus so many people have lost their books while on vacation, that I think it's good to have a low-key version. I think it was like $12 or maybe $20?

 

Either way, whichever company you choose, make sure you google coupon codes first. I know that mypublisher sometimes has free books. Or something I learned from Morgan, you can sometimes buy codes off of ebay for free books or something. So make sure to check for deals before you order!

So you just used the digital photos your photographer gave you and uploaded them and created your own on that website? Thats kind of a cool idea... does it take a long time to do and then receive it??

I did mine in just a few hours, probably longer then needed. And I received it before we left for JA, so it literally took like 2 days. I got my photos done on the 4th, but didn't get the dvd with proofs until like the 9th (which was actually really quick, since i knew my photog personally). I ordered the book the same day and had it in hand by the time we left on the 14th. I probably paid extra for shipping, but that would only be a few dollars. So all in all, yes, you can get the book quickly. You just need to make sure the photog gets you the edited photos by a certain date, so be clear with then on when you need the photos by...

I made my album on iphoto through their store. It was super easy, only took me an hour. If you have iphoto on your computer you just drag the photos from there. The book only cost $29.99 for a hardcover. It was shipped to me within 7 days, no rush shipping.

I love the idae of a Lock & Key being given the night before and then having the box, etc containing it delivered to him on your wedding day. All of your comment and ideas are really helpful, ladies.

The logistics/timing never worked out for me to give him the book the day of the wedding. I was going to have our photographer's husband deliver it, but he was with his groomsmen and family all day. (Did not want it falling into the wrong hands.....)

 

So I gave it to him on our first morning as husband and wife, and I snapped pictures of his reaction!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
