I have a question for you ladies that already had your shoots, where did you do them?

 

I'm supposed to have mine done at my photogs house but now I'm thinking I should get a hotel room. Any suggestions?

I also did mine at my photogs house, the lighting was great and she had different backdrops to use. I am sure you are not the first person they will have shot in the home. You will be fine. I wouldn't add an expense for a hotel room unless there is a specific hotel that is special to you and your FI

I just went to Claire's & picked up a long necklace - nothing fancy. It was like $12 or something like that! Other than that I only wore my larimar flip flop necklace that DH gave me for our wedding. Now that I think about it, I don't think I even wore earrings! lol

Thanks ladies! I guess my photog would know best if his house was suitable or not and he's got all his equipment :)

 

It's funny because when I originally considering doing the shoot I asked him to recommend a photog to do it because he had no pictures or promotion on his site and he told me he does them all the time but they don't go on his website because they are private and I felt better.

 

Alright I'm gonna relax and let it happen, I'm bringing white sheets but that's it I believe. You'd thinking kicking coffee would relax me, I think it's actually making me more crazy :)

ok...so i just got back from my shoot! I hired Kamila Harris and she was absolutely great to work with! She directed me how to pose and showed pics as we went along.

 

The only thing I did not like was my make up. The girl who did it just put too much foundation and made my eyes to dark. I told her before we started that I never ever wear make up so i wanted something natural. She said that the eyes would need to be a little dark so that it could show up in the photos. I am waiting for teaser pics and i really really hope that i look ok. I am scared that my FI may not like the photos because of the make up sad.gif

Joanna, how exciting! I can't wait to see your pix!

 

I'm sure you're FI might not even notice that you are wearing darker makeup than usual one he sees them wink.gif

hi girls! hey KH :) I am starting to think about my BD shoot, so I can get my butt in shape!! Our photographer is out of town, so we will have to travel to have our engagement pictures. I was thinking I could sneak away and have some "bridal portraits" aka BD shoot while we are there. How long do these shoots usually take? She also suggested doing it the first day of our Mexico trip. Any other ideas?

For my shoot, we started at 11:30 and I was out by 1:30. The shoot itself was probably about an hour, but i had to wait a bit to get my hair and make up done.

Jerseygirl - I am sure your photos will be great! Your makeup artist is right...under the bright lights you can lose your eyes without enough makeup on them - I hope you like them because I am sure your sweetie will think they are amazing! Remember they are you, but a little bit of racey you toowink.gif

 

Well I just booked and the photographer was awesome and has me coming in two weeks! That is just going to fly by!

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
