    Welcome Babybird!

     

    Is anyone who is using the resort photographer planning on doing a TTD?  I ask Ana how much it would cost and she said she didnt know.  I also asked how much for set up fees if I bring my own centerpieces and she said she didnt know.  I guess I won't be able to figure out a final budget anytime soon.  Maybe after Tracy gets married we'll get all the real info!

      "Finally i dont know if this has been asked anywhere on here before but I feel like I know you ladies and wanted to ask you what you thought........My e ring has a thick platinum band and we have started to look at wedding bands (i want a thin band with a few dimonds on it) and I really dont want to spend more then like $500 on my band, but obv cant get a platinum band with a few dimonds on it for $500.........so here is my question.....Is it cheesy to get a white gold band to go with my platinum e ring? will it look different color, less shiney?  And if not is there a big difference beteween 14k and 18k gold? Thanks girls!!  "

       

       

      Keep in mind that platinum will form a "Patina" with wear that other metals don' (because it is soft but strong, the metal will form scratches and dings rather then wearing down and losing metal. Platinum is less fragile than other metals)

      Palladium will match it best at the beginning but will not wear the same way at all. I'n not sure if you can constantly have you platinum polished to keep it looking like your band but it's a possibility.

        I was told there are no set up fees for centerpieces or some decor but if you wanted special decor or lounge chairs and tables then there is a cost for those.

          Thanks Lisa.  The only extra stuff I'm bringing is the white lights to string in the bamboo for the reception.  I can't imagine them charging a lot for that.

            Are you bringing christmas type lighting or rope lighting and if so how much of it cause I would like to do the same thing but not sure exactly what to use or how much? From what I understand anything you bring they will set up if you tell them in the first meeting but if you need to rent any type of decor that is what costs money.

                I am going with the Divine package and that was my plan. She gave me the photog's info and when I asked him he said it was no problem.

                  Lisa and ldunson,

                  I got christmas type lighting but I got it at Michael's craft store and it's actually called wedding lighting.  The only different is that the wire is all white whereas christmas lights usually have that green wire.  Here's a link that has the exact brand I got: http://www.csis.hype...dinglights.html

                   

                  Mischaka,

                  Did you get quotes from the photographer on how much he charges for the TTD session?

                    Thanks, SKing!  How much did you get?  I also saw some cheap rope lighting from AceHardware.com- it's 9.99 for about 18 ft.  I realy have no clue how much to get...

                      Does anyone else have trouble posting sometimes?  Anyway, thanks SKing!  I found some rope lighting too from ACE Hardware.com that's a pretty good deal.  How much are you using?  I have no clue!
