          Good luck.  I hope its a magical day for you and your hubby to be. Remember what all the previous brides have said....take in everything on the actual day and take time to look around you at the beautiful surroundings and absorb it all.  Congratulations. Cant wait to hear your review.

            Rashel Edwards quoted me 70 for hair and 70 for make up and 100 for travel. 

             

            I'm not getting married until Jan 2014 and she cautioned me to book quickly since she's already booking into 2014. If you're getting married in March you may want to check with her ASAP to see if she's available on your date.

Seriously, I was one of those brides that had planned every last detial beofre hand, and once we got there, it all just falls into place stress free, even if it isnt exactly the way you pictured it. My husband( lol crazy!) has the day off today so we are spening the day at home in our pjs since its so cole(How I miss the beach and plus 30), So I will post pics and reviews later. All I would like to say is No worries! everything works our great and Chandlyn is fantastic, and accomodated everything we asked. And for anyone wondering about the picses, it was stunning! I coiuldnt see us doing our reception any other way.  Also, We are both very into high quality photography and had amazing photographer Genevieve Albert from Montreal, we did not want to use the resort after hearing they were not very good quality, HOWEVER, they cam and took the free pics anyways and I was extremely impressed by the quality of them, we got 5 free ones and paid for a couple more. Below are a few of the pics we have gotten back from Geneieve. And for hair and makeup, it was more expensive to get it done at the resort than to hire off of the resort, we went with Rashel Edwards and her stylist Sophia who were both phenomenal.

               

              Well, gonna go relax with my husband!!! And I will put up a review sometime in the next week, gonna unwind and unpack! Nothing to worry about ladies!!!! Oh, and I have tons of advice on some amazing local excursions and a great company with great prices!

                Do any of the "past" brides know how long it takes to get the marriage licence mailed? Thanks

                  Oh and by the way brides! I DID NOT pay the $800 vendor fee for my photographer. He came with us from Ontario, and we paid his stay for the week. At the meeting, the co-ordinators asked if I hired my own photog, and I just said that he is our family friend, and he will be taking the pictures. They then asked if he was a professional, and I said, "well...he has the big cameras etc, but he's just starting out..." and they didnt say anything else. If there was to be anything said, my photographer agreed to say he was our family friend/uncle.  When I was booking my wedding, I emailed complaining about this vendor fee, and the response was "friends and family are allowed to take pictures" ....so I printed that off and brought it with me incase I needed to put up a fight!!!!

                   

                  Also, for Rashel Edwards, I didn't have to pay for a day guest pass....before my wedding, I emailed the co-ordinators and told them she will only be there before my wedding, then leaving...(some brides have her stay until after wedding to fix up make-up). So they told me they would waive the guest pass fee.

                  We received ours about 6 weeks later.  She was in contact with us after about 4 weeks for our address.

                    I need mine sooner than 6-8 weeks so Chandlyn told me to pay an extra $80 and I could have it within 10 business days. I hope that truly happens.
