Any 2011 Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

OK I know it is still very early...but did anyone start to look for a good photographer and a good videographer? So far, I get the price of Cecilia Dumas and Elizabeth Medina. I will ask for Sascha Gluck too...but so far...they aren't cheap, but pics are so important! I feel like spurge a bit, but at the same time I wanna stay reasonable too. Elizabeth Medina said it is not to early to book for 2011, May and June are popular months!!

I don't think it's too early at all! In fact, I've had mine booked for a couple months now. Mainly because photos are very important to me and photographers seem to change their prices and package quite often so I wanted to be sure to lock in to them.

Well we have a close friend who happens to be a great photog. and as long as we pay for his hotel and flight then he'll take all the pics we need. which is AWESOME!!!!! *crosses fingers he'll still agree when the wedding comes* But if he doesn't I was going to look into booking Ivan Luckie.

So, I'm probably going to be alone on this one, but I HATE having my picture taken, and so does my FI. I think we're just going to stick with the photographer the resort offers (we can pick from two) and get the most basic package. I may change my mind, but honestly the pictures aren't as important to me as other things. I'm hoping family/friends take a lot of pictures on their own cameras, and that'll be good enough for me.

Raychel, Which one did u book? are u going to take a TTD session too?
I remember u have an excel file with all the price...but I need to get to JUNIOR in order to download it! So far Elizabeth is 2X the price of Cecilia, but she offers 2X of editing plus other things.

That is awesome! Hopefully that will work out for you, it would save you a bunch! Of course Ivan is great too (that's who I booked with!)

I ended up booking with Ivan Luckie and I am going to do a TTD (that's what I'm most excited for!). Elizabeth was by far one of the most expensive photogs I looked into, but she is fabulous and I think that she has been around long enough to where she can afford to charge that much. You are going about it exactly right, get a bunch of quotes and just compare and contrast the different features that each photog offers to see which one has more of the features you want. I know it's pretty time consuming, but I would get price sheets from a good handful of photogs before choosing

hmm...I guess it is not too early then. I would prefer more artsy style. I am an amateur photographer and I can photoshop too. Therefore, I am more picky on photo. My god brother is a pro photographer too, but he is also getting married in 2011 at Hong Kong, so he isn't sure if he can come. Therefore, I am looking at plan B now.

prettypigpig.... ITS NEVER TO EARLY!!!!! smile123.gif

& by the sounds of it your much more advanced than me in the finance department!! Haha...

Your STD's are fab, Like michelle im not having them but i totally agree with her your guest will love them, i would love to receive something like that :-)

 

As for photographers im with cjb0arder13 on this and using the hotel one. Not because i dont like having my photo taken (which i do hate) though but just simply because its just easier and like cjb0arder13 we will have friends and family there aswell who we will get pictures off. We absolutly want pictures of our big day, but 12/24 professional ones and the rest from others will be great for us :-)

 

Im not doing a TTD, although they look so much fun, we just havent got it in our budget... ARGH.... Flippin' budget!!!! haha :-) If we did i'd be right there with most of you, but i dont think id use my "actual" wedding dress though! but im not really sure how these work, but as i mentioned they look like so much fun.

    • 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. 
    • 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.
