Anyone planning on doing a boudoir shoot? If so any recommendations that wouldnt cost an arm and a leg?

Absolutely!

Check out Miss Behave. That is where I went, and let me tell you, it was an AMAZING experience. The girls are so great there. I am super self conscious, but I had so much fun. I would do it again in a second.

It is still a little pricey, but not too too bad, and they have specials pretty frequently, and I actually went using a groupon, so you could ask if they have any of those coming up. 

Also, if you do decide to go that route, mention my name (Krysta C.) if you would not mind. :)

 

I highly recommend them, anyway!

My plan is to do a boudoir shoot. Two of my good friends have used TAIT photographer in Calgary for their boudoir books. It is expensive but the quality of her work is amazing! The way I look at it is, I'll probably never do anything like it again and it'll make a nice gift for the fiancé. I would rather pay a bit more money for a nice quality book and photos than regret not paying enough and have something I never want to look at again.

I heard negative things about Romantic Planet so I didn't even bother checking them out. Sorry to hear you had such a stressful experience. What happen?

I'm starting to realize how hard it is to find a good TA in Calgary. The rates I'm getting are terrible. Why would I suggest to my guests to go through one when it would be so much cheaper to pay direct? I have one TA who may be promising and I'm going to check with AMA (thanks for the suggestions girls) to see if they can do better. We are getting married December 2013 - most likely a RIU resort in Playa del Carmen.

Kristie I went to Miss Behave.  It kind of did cost an arm and a leg but I loved the pictures!  The airbrushing makes you look fantastic, haha.  We made it like a girls day - my cousin and 2 friends and I went shopping for outfits then got our makeup done at MAC and our hair done at Blo and went to their studio (which was in a really creepy area downtown lol, but super cute and nice inside) and we ordered pizza and brought wine and had a blast.  Might be a good shower/bachelorette kind of thing.  Of course I think if I could do it again I'd have the girls day but do what Jolene suggested and get a whole CD for waaaay cheaper!  Have fun and good luck!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
