Not long till your shoot do you have everything all together?
OMG wednesday is coming round sooooo quick!! I think I'm as sorted as I'm ever going to be...but that's not necessarily as sorted as I should be! just panicking I think....I'll be glad when I've done it and I can forget about it. I've spent so long stressing about this - I'll love it, i know that, but I will be relieved when it's over.

  • Have your eyebrows waxed or tweezed a few days prior to your session to avoid red skin and puffiness (same for the bikini area)
  • Moisturize your skin the morning of your session. Don't use self tanners or body oil at that time since those can damage or discolor your lingerie or the photographers furniture and fabrics.
  • Tell your photographer what you like best about yourself and if there is an area about yourself that you'd like to minimize.
  • Have your hair and makeup professionally done.
  • Don't party the night before your session.
  • Don't wear tight fitting clothes to your session. Lines even from socks around your ankles can take hours to disappear.
  • Don't get a sunburn before your session. Tan lines will show. If you've never visited a tanning booth or used a self-tanning lotion, try it once before doing it for the first time before your session.
  • Bring some of your own music for the photographer to play during your session.
  • Have Fun feeling Sexy, sweet, playful, sultry and beautiful!

Katie, just relax - you're going to look amazing & have a fabulous time!! Come back & tell us how it goes! :)

 

btw, girls, I didn't end up wearing any jewelry except my e-ring & a pair of diamond earrings and I didn't use any props (except the furniture, beaded curtain, & mirror that she had there). The pics are great & I didn't feel like anything was missing when I looked at them w/ Jen (photog). So no stressing necessary to find the "right" props. :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
