Thanks Candacey, Natalie, and MissJali!!
I highly recommend my photog if anyone is still looking for one. One good advice I was given was to not skimp out on photog cost for your budget!! They're the one who will capture your happiest day of your life for you to relive it forever. If anyone wants more info about him, let me know.
Natalie - I'm glad to hear your compliments about the bridesmaid's pompoms! Haha, I actually made them so they're fake, out of tissue. I used 3 different shades of pink to create the ombre effect. I can provide more details on how this is done if anyone is interested. They turn out way better than I thought, didn't they? It was good, because I just did all the folding before the trip, so I only had to carry long strips of flat tissue papers - very lightweight. Once we got to the resort, my girls and I designated a couple hours out of a day to put together the wedding favours, and to pouf out all the bouquets and centerpieces.
MissJali - I saw his cake topper picture idea from when he did it for another couple, and so when he asked me to make a list of what kind of group shots I want, and what are the must have shots I wanted him to take, I made sure that was on the list. Feel free to copy the idea, although, if you post up that picture wherever, please be sure to credit his name for the idea - Aaron Willcox. There's another picture he took for a couple for their engagement shot, which looked like the girl is standing on top of the guy's hand, like he's balancing a tray of drinks. I thought that was cool, and I had my friend duplicate the same shot, had it up on facebook and credited his name, so he wouldn't mind.
Glad you guys enjoyed the pictures =D
TIP: Cake style and centerpieces - please don't stress about this!! I know I was, but once you're living that day, you'll realize no one really care what the cake and centerpieces look like, as long as it doesn't look like sh*t. Think practical for centerpieces - so something big, colourful, and lightweight, and cheap, like what I had for mine. For cake style, my husband and I had only a couple bites of the cake - we had chocolate chocolate cake and it was good. At first, I wanted my cake to be a certain way, and they would've wanted me to pay extra for fondant and all that. So I said no, no fondant, just regular icing is fine. I was worried it'd melt and look bad, but they did a decent job with it, provided with the ribbons I brought for them.
Reception all comes down to how organize you are, and what you can do for them for entertainment. This means, making an itinerary/timeline on what happens first once you arrive at reception, to the end. As long as there's an organized flow for the whole evening, guests will enjoy themselves, whether you're paying $50 for each centerpiece, or $1 like I did!!
