How long before you received the slide show and how long before you get your actual pictures?  

 

As for the trash the dress session, are those done the day after the wedding? And does Anel take underwater shots?

I had her for the complete coverage as well and she was worth more then every penny we paid.

 

Here is our slideshow and her impressive work.

The photos were ready for us two or three days after the wedding, she was very good at having them to us quickly.  She will keep in mind when you are leaving and will be sure to get you the photos asap.  The slideshow took longer with all the edits and stuff, but she had that ready for us maybe a week or so after we got home.  She emailed it to us...and then the photo album that is included as well arrived about 4 weeks after we got home, it's beautiful as well.

 

We did not do a trash the dress session with her (we did the $999 photo package, everything but TTD) because we had a large reception when we got home where I wore my dress again...You can email and ask her if she takes underwater shots though...she'll get back to you...she is honestly the best....everyone in my wedding party RAVED about her!

Hi Ashley,

 

Thank you!  The girls were very comfortable in their breezy dresses and the colour matched the ocean perfectly...I got the dresses online through Sears.  They were $79.99 which was great since everyone was paying to travel.  The only tricky part was finding the matching ties for the bridesman and ringbearer but it all worked out easily!  The star fish sandals were also from Sears.

 

Good luck with your planning!

We got those at Sears...they were perfect in style but not the most comfortable.  Truthfully, if i was to do it all over again, I would not wear shoes and i wouldn't have the girls wear shoes either.  if you are getting married on the beach they are tough to walk in the sand with and the sand is not hot at all so you can get away with not wearing any...I was so preoccupied walking down the aisle in my shoes because i thought i was going to trip and fall face first LOL...my parents had to hold me up! LOL...i love the beaded toe jewlery...i would probably go with that if I could do it all over again.

I actually just looked online for you (to make sure they were still there) and they are even cheaper now then before ($59.99 now!) and they have a few different colour options.

 

Here is the link

Yes, if you don't make any upgrades you get the 50 pics that are included. I purchased an additional package to get 200 pics instead and that is for the whole day. :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
