Thanks girls!  I'll post some more of my favorites when I get them.  I can't stress enough how much I loved having Sarani as our photographer.   If anybody out there is on the fence with which to use I say go Sarani all the way, she's worth every penny.

 

I love the idea of sunrise photos... I wish I had done a second photo session instead of wasting our money on a DJ... or paid for something fun and live entertainment... I also think If I could do it over again, I would have done dinner on the beach instead.. that would have been nice I think.. and memorable.  Even with the wind, I saw some beach dinners that looked so nice. 

 

and Lindsey, you know I want to see all your photos, PM that link!... remember photos are wedding crack.. right now I can't get enough of them... have to live vicariously through you and the other brides until I get the rest of mine.

Oh.. and my MOH wanted me to pass this bit of info along.

Her dress was a stretchy material, instead of the flowy kind.  Her dress didn't wrinkle in transit and when she looked at other bridesmaids that had adorable flowy dresses on, she noticed they all spent the whole day holding their dresses down...a never ending battle with the wind.   I guess there was one group doing photos on the beach when we walked by, and she noticed that the girls all looked really annoyed with trying to hold their dresses down.  She was really glad then that she had on something tighter, since she didn't think about the wind once.  She actually talks about it all the time... that and how since she gained some weight from all the good food the dress was still able to stretch to fit, that's just an extra good side effect... not unlike my loving having a lace up gown to adjust for a week of binging on amazing food.

Thank you! I am obsessed with them, I'll be honest :) Since we didn't invite extended family, I'm so glad we have all of these pictures to share with them at our AHR in August.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
