    How far in advance are you girls booking or doing your hair and makeup prior to the ceremony? I guess I have to consider dressing time too and give myself a bit of a buffer in case of emergency! lol.

        Our wedding is at 4pm and I booked our hair and make-up appointments to start at 11 am. Hopefully this will be enough time!

          Thanks Jenne. I was going to see if I could book for 1pm for my 3pm ceremony. Maybe I'll try to book for noon instead. It'll be just me since I don't have a wedding party.

              BTW, Elke (spa manager) suggested I have my hair appt at 2:30 for a 4:30 wedding. I thought that was WAY too close and I moved it up to noon. I need time to do my makeup and chill out beforehand!!

                Thanks, Amy! I found this forum like a month ago and finally registered:) Hey, how do you get your picture on your responses? I uploaded one but it doesn't show. Also, how do you get your countdown to appear? Thanks:)
                So, I actually read through all 55 pages of what everyone wrote so I have a few questions...lol:)
                First, congrads LaRomanaBride!! I hope your wedding was beautiful...I am sure it was:)
                Vonnie6...can you post the price list of flowers that Tiara sent you?
                Thanks, Amy for posting those great pics months ago:) And once I figure out this forum I will post my link to my wedding website which is the same layout as yours:)
                Sunandsand...I love your idea of picture souvenirs for all the guests! I mentioned this to my fiance and he likes the idea, too. I am getting married 5 days before you...maybe I'll see you there!

                My fiance and I are actually really thinking about getting married here, first to avoid all the legal stuff and just so we know that it is legal here in the US. At first I thought it would take away from the actual day but the day we get married here is just a piece of paper. We are just going to have our parents and not make a big deal about it. The day we are at the resort, and I am in my dress, and everyone is there- that will be our real wedding date.
                After reading everyone's posts, I am really thinking of using an outside photographer and dj. I guess I am just a little nervouse because I don't want to be scammed. Can anyone shed light on this? Pics and dancing are really important to us and our guests and thank God for this forum because this is stuff I wouldn't have thought of without it!
                Sorry for the long post, guys...thanks for reading and answering:)

                  Welcome GEM!

                  KPEG, i would talk with your photographer first to come up with a timeline. Thats how i figured out what time for my self. If you want getting ready shots, first look shots, some family/BP shots before hand that will increase the time between getting hair and make-up done and the ceremony.

                    I have my hair and make-up appointment made for 1pm for a 4pm ceremony. The spa manager said that with a 1pm appointment I should be done by 3pm so that I will have about an hour to chill and have a few drinks before the ceremony starts. Hope this helps.

                      My pic is my 'avatar' which I believe you upload under 'User CP'. My ticker is from a 'ticker' website that you copy the code from and then insert into your 'signature' also found in the user cp section. You'll get the hang of it!

                      You can list your wedding website link in your siggy as well.

                      We got married last week at City Hall and just had my best friend and my 97 y.o. Grandad who can't travel to DR with us. I wanted him to feel special and included in our big day and he was just tickled to attend. I didn't really want anyone to know, but my FI was so excited and has the BIGGEST mouth that I think everyone ended up finding out... but whatever... the big day is when I'm in my dress and everyone is there to witness it!!

                      I'm going with HDC photo, which I think we've talked about throughout this thread and there is also another thread on BDW about it. They look really good and very reasonably priced.
                      But for DJ, I'm just going to go with the resort one. I do want to have all our songs specifically laid out by playlists for him to play.
