I will definitely check my hair and make up in the morning and see how it looks - if it needs some fixing i'll do it - but i don't want to spend too much time on the hair - especially since eventually it's going to be in the water!!!
I'm going to have to ask a friend to videotape as well - I'm not doing a videographer either.
time is really ticking ladies - I'm under the 2 month mark! i started this thread in June -we have 177 pages and 1770 posts!!!
I think I've ordered everything for my OOT bags and last night I ordered barefoot sandals from Etsy.
I'm wearing flat sandals for the wedding but I want to wear these for the TTD.

Yes we are flying down our own photographer, for me, photos are soooo important, I don't even want to know how many pictures I take in a year! So we definitely budgetted for that, and actually got a great deal. I fell in love with my photographer Barb at a wedding show, and she had interest in doing a destination wedding because she never had before, so she agreed to do it for JUST the cost of travel/accomodation. We could have paid for a few nights only, but it would have cost in the same neighbourhood, so we opted to take her for the whole week, and she's shooting everything, rehearsal, welcome dinner, getting ready, ceremony, reception, trash the dress, excursion, etc. We really lucked out!
I love all these hairstyles, they are absolutely gorgeous! I've heard good things about hte DPC spa and how they are with hair. However, I don't think I'd be comfortable not having done trials ahead of time, and putting all my faith in them, so I'm lucky enough to have a bridesmaid that is stellar with hair, so we're going to do a couple trials and she'll be doing it the day of. Mainly just a bunch of curls in an updo, since I have a tiara and a veil.

I was considering this, 1 question.. aren't you afraid the sand will be to hot?! I know it's why I didn't buy it.. as a lot of times when down south I need my flip flops to walk in the sand to get to my chair cause it's too hot.
I feel in love with me dress when we originally planned an in town churching wedding. I'm keeping this one for my ceremony, but will change into a lighter dress.. I will use this dress for the TTD. We are having a reception in July for family and close friends who could attend. So I didn't want to ruin it for that. Plus it was enough money I didn't want to ruin it.
But I did hear, once your done your session to go right to your room, in the shower (with the dress on) and then hang dry it for the rest of your stay.. should be good as new! (definitely depends on the material but my 'church' dress wouldn't last through the salt water)
Sounds like you have an amazing photographer, your so lucky you'll have all those pictures.
I will add cameras to the dinner tables and get guest to take our evening photo's as my photographer is there just for the ceremony.

My pictures are going to be a little messed up. We have our photographer for two hours right after the ceremony and that's it so I'm really hoping that we can get some good beach pictures that don't involve getting completely soaked because we have to sit down for dinner right afterwards! But I'm very lucky that I have two guests that are photographers as a hobby and will be an amazing alternative for getting my TTD pics done a day or two later. So the reason I got the second dress was just in case I have time with our pro photogs. to do a super quick dress change so that I don't worry too much about getting a little wet. But most of all I'm just going to play it by ear and see how things go at the time.
And if my real wedding dress gets a little sandy and I have to wash it off in the shower, well, it's just one more excuse to pull my new hubbie into the shower with me!!!!!!!!

I was going to get that dress from sears but found one off the rack a little bit cheaper.
You girls will definitely have to post pics of the dress!!!!
Your so lucky you have photographer friends Meghan, I am sure you'll get loads of beautiful pictures.
Smart thinking with the whole dress thing and TTD!!

My dress was a huge budget dress, so I'll most likely use the same one...and from what I hear as long as your a little careful to not get it snagged on anything, the sand and the salt water actually cleans dresses up as good as new - that's what a lot of the gals have posted on here anyway...and because I didn't spend a whole lot on my dress I'm not too worried about it!
TOO excited! I can't wait!
Michele, LOVE the barefoot sandals, they are beautiful!!!
Erin, I'm totally for next day hair do's and makeup, lol!! I think with a little clean up and maybe some hairspray the next day can be like a softer more subtle beautiful look...more natural and raw which will convey wonderfully on photos, plus photoshop is a wonderful thing to fix anything you don't like!!

And Suzy has a good point... at least a few of my friends have mentioned recently that their dresses all got stepped on by mistake and wound up being ripped and needing repairs Let's hope that none of us end up with the same fate until after all the pictures are done!
