It is a photoshoot, usually the day after your wedding, where you and the husband wear your wedding attire in the ocean. I have seen some amazng pictures of brides in the water and laying in the sand, etc. I am assuming the salt water and sand literally trashes your dress. LOL. The more I think about it, the more I am on the fence. Cool pics but do I really want to do that? Here are some pics of a TTD:

Yeah same here, I really dont know if my FI will be into it either. LOL. And the extra cost of the package as well as paying for the photgrapher to come back on Ocean Blue property. I booked without it for now too. :-)

I'm also on the fence about it.  The photos are stunning, but since my mom paid for the dress, I'm not really a fan of the idea of 'trashing' it.  I'm actually considering getting one of the knock off dresses from China.  That way, I'm not trashing my actual dress...just a $150 knock-off.

Hey Ladies!!

 

Alicia- I love your barefoot sandal! You did a great job! 

 

Jessica- your save the dates are awesome!! They really came out great and I bet your guest will be so excited when they receive them! I also love your wedding website. I used mywedding.com too but I only have bare bones on mine so far. I need to add so much stuff. Are you using a travel agent? I was so on the fence about that but I think I'm sticking to not using one.

 

I absolutely loved the TTD pictures posted on here in the past and booked them with HDC but agree that they aren't for everyone. If you read some past stories on here alot of brides say their dresses came out cleaner than they were after walking around the resort for the wedding! Just a thought.. I can't attest to it :)

 

Rebecca from Allurements by Rebecca is working on my boarding pass save the dates now. I'll post when they are complete but I saw a draft and they're amazing. I'm SO freakin excited!!

The honeywmoon sweet is no joke. I would say the Honey moon suite is close to double the price of a regular room.

Kristina- thanks.  There's still a lot of info I'd like to add to the website.  It's just a matter of finding the time to research.  I was thinking of doing some common Spanish phrases as well....let everyone get an early start on learning to say "I'd like a Pina Colada."  Lol

We aren't using a TA.  I spoke to one and got some preliminary info, but the rates that were offered through the TA were actually higher than what the average rates on the website were.  Plus, they wanted a $500 deposit to hold the room black, which seemed strange to me.  In the years that I worked in hotels and booked wedding blocks, we never asked for a deposit for them.  So, we're letting everyone book on their own.

 

Can't wait to see your STD's.  We're doing boarding pass invites, and I think we're going to end up doing those ourselves, since they can get a bit pricey.

Alicia those so cute. You made them? I am good with paper stuff and computer stuff but thread and beads? Not so much. I look forward to seeing what else you make. :-)

It's my intent to make some for myself, and my bridal party. Perhaps if I get REALLY ambitious I can make them for ALL of the females attending the wedding (using some more "budget friendly" beads of course for the rest of the guests....lol)

 

Excuse my "winter feet"...really need a pedicure now that it is spring, and flip-flop weather is coming!

 

What do you think?

The honeymoon suite prices do seem crazy! Especially because we're going for 2 weeks. I think we're booking a normal room and then trying to negotiate an upgrade once we're there- even if it's just for the second week or something. Honestly we spend so little time in our room that it seems like a waste to me. The only reason I really want it is for the getting ready pictures LOL.

That's exactly how I feel! The package prices elsewhere are so much less expensive! I'm just happy someone else agrees because I was starting to second guess myself because I felt like the only one! I think I have a list of spanish phrases saved on my pc.. I'll post at home if I still have it. That's another great idea for the website. Or even for a pre-travel or welcome letter!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
