My TTD during someone else's wedding week??
Posted 24 March 2009 - 02:57 PM
Well, it turns out that his BM is attending one of his friends' wedding in February next year in Riviera Maya. We said that our next trip was going to be the RM, so they invited us to go! It would be a great trip & DH would get to spend some time with his BM since they live in different provinces.
Anyway...my question is...do you think it is in poor taste as a guest to plan a TTD during another brides wedding week?? We would not have any of their guests involved...it would be just DH and I. What are your thoughts??!
Oh...and because I know a lot of brides have complained (rightfully so!) about uninvited guests I got the brides email addy from DH's BM & told her not to feel pressured to invite us to the wedding! I wanted her to know we were going for the vacation...not to crash her wedding!! I also pointed her in the direction of BDW and Kathy since she is getting married at Iberostar Paraiso Beach!

I felt so terrible for you, it is in my opinion the most important aspect of my wedding! I would be completely crushed and it would probably be something I wouldn't get over either. You are completely justified! Second, you did the right thing by emailing the bride. Obviously she should tell you that it isn't a problem but it is her wedding and by letting her know you can worry less and she knows that you are care about her feelings. I do not think that having your pics done during their wedding trip is bad at all, there will be so many people there and so many other weddings. I am sure the bride will understand your situation.
I am so excited for you! Now, who are you going to hire to do your pictures!
Thank you ladies!!
And thank you so much Steph for your kind words! It actually made me teary eyed (surprise, surprise!!)! I actually didn't email her about our planned TTD, just the invite to the wedding thing, but I will definitely let her know my plans. She seems really easy going - even told me we were invited to the wedding! She just wants a vacation, with a wedding somewhere in the middle of it!
I have been thinking about who I am going to hire. We still aren't going to have a huge amount of money for this, but I'm not hiring a crappy photographer just because the price is right! I'm definitely going to be more fllexible!! I am planning on checking with some RM brides here to see who they are using, or if they want to share someone who they are flying in (that will be my next new thread!!). I'm also going to check with the bride to see if she is bringing in a photographer.
I'm very excited!! Although, in some ways it seems really strange to have "wedding" photos done a year later. Maybe I might even just buy a simple white dress & call it an anniv. TTD shoot (instead of a wedding one!)

A lot of our guests did what they wanted to do during the day. I think it is great you will get wedding pictures you like. If you want to do TTD in a cenote I recommend Hidden Worlds they were awesome.
