So Juan is meeting me at my room to take a few shots for about 10 minutes then heading to meet Cain for some before the ceremony shots around the resort (for an hour) then off the to ceremony and after cermony shots. I think 3 hours is going to be enough time... well at least I hope it will be.
tammy heres what i think - YMMV. the getting ready shots are some of the best of the day. theyre so full of excitement and emotion. take a look at this album and see what i mean - Album Preview

do you have room in your budget to add more time? just a thought.

OK First Leigh, those pictures a great, and I love the album.

 

Here's the thing, were not having an MOH or BM and as of right now my best friend was suppose to go but no can't. I'm afraid I'll be too depressed doing "getting ready" pictures since the only ones there will be Cain's aunt.

Couple things, 1) Christine - what photographer did you end up choosing - I can't wait to hear!

 

2) TammyM - that's so sad. We're not having a MOH or BM - I might still invite my girls in to help me, maybe my mom. I am starting to wish I had a bridal party, because they support you throughout this whole process. But we can do it alone! I know you talked about having your mom come by helping to pay for her - can she help you get ready? What about Cain's ma or another girl at teh wedding?

I e-mailed Liz Edlund, the one Leigh told me about and I am waiting to make sure she is still available. She was last time I spoke with her, but her pictures are very pretty and her price is very reasonable for the package she gives according to what I have seen in that area.

Ann, Cain's Ma is going to want to be with him on our wedding day. Missy is going (Cain's aunt) and yes she can be with me. If my Mom goes she will be NO help, she's just not good at stuff like that..

oh lord, my mom will be no help either. i mean, that woman can fix any leaky pipe, run electrical wire anywhere, or repair any broken appliance. but make up? hair? not so much.

 

i still want her around though!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
