Atlantis Bride- 3/26/11 - Would love to see pics from other Atlantis brides!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I am getting married at the Atlantis in 3 months! I am having approx 70 people and have booked the Fathoms restaurant for our reception. I have hired Floral Arts for my flowers and decor/lighting, Stephen Bain for music/DJ, and www.haringphotography.com for my pictures/videography.

I was wondering if there were any brides out there who have had their hair and make up done at the spa at the Atlantis. I am really skeptical and don't want to have a cake face! Anyhoo, if you have gotten married there- I would love to see pictures!!!

Also, if you have any questions or need advice, I have been planning for almost a year and could probably offer some insight in the areas I have already booked.

 

Thanks!

Kim

Yeah, another Atlantis bride!  I'm interested to see the responses too.  I'm getting married at June 2011 and am worried about hair/makeup at the spa.  I'm less worried about hair - I was thinking about having my hairdresser at home test out styles and taking pictures to bring with me.  Surely someone can duplicate that right?  I do have 2 recommendations for makeup - one from my photographer and one from the wedding salesperson.  I haven't called either so i don't have info to pass along, but thought you might want to try.

 

This is the one from the Atlantis person:

 

Apryl Weech

305-677-3340

242-364-4023

apryl@aprylweech.com

aweech@hotmail.com

 

Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the one my photographer recommended but I have it at home and can post later.

 

My reception is also at Fathoms but we figure maybe 30-40 people will attend.  I'm using Wildflowers, Tim Alyen (photos), Jose Ageeb (DJ), and Matthew Sweeting (officiant).  I think all the big things are set, but I may ask some questions later.  Definitely post pictures of your wedding!

Hey! Yay! I am getting married Memorial Day weekend down there!

My photog is the same as Steph's (tim aylen) and I am still working on a dj.

What made you pick Stephen Bain for music/DJ.

I am working with Wildflowers and soon Floral Arts for estimates!

Kara- I chose Stephen Bain because I noticed he was used by alot of brides and is recommended by Wildflowers. When I googled him, his name came up in some bridal blogs so I figured that was a good sign.

I chose to go with Floral Arts because they quoted me a better price on everything. I send a mood board with flowers, table settings. etc so they were pricing off of the same pictures. For example, for the same exact chairs- Wildflowers quoted me a dollar higher than Wildflowers.

Also, Floral Arts was alot more responsive and helpful in answering my questions and finding out about exact details with the Atlantis on certain questionable requests I had.

Oops sorry, I meant to say that Wildflowers quoted me a higher price than Floral Arts...

Here is the other makeup artist recommended by Tim:

 

Regina McCook

reginamccook@yahoo.com

242-326-6327

242-357-4486

 

Matthew Sweeting was on the Atlantis preferred vendor list and my salesperson raved about him.  Then I found all good news about him on BDW and checked his website and knew he was the one we wanted.  Jose was strictly a referral from this forum but Matthew and Tim's websites both had links to Jose's so that solidified my decision on him.  I met all the vendors on my site visit in October (except Jose who was out of town that weekend) and am happy so far.

Hey!

So I spoke to Stephan last night and we are gonna decide hopefully today if we are using Jose or Stephan. Tim recommended both but said Stephan really gets invovled..so we will see.

 

I am getting quotes from Floral Arts and Wildflowers.

 

For pre-travel mailers (going out 3 weeks before the wedding) we are sending luggage tags from plicards.com and rubber custom bracelets in a yellow or something bright so people can recognize each other around the resort or on the plane. We are also sending out a little "last minute reminder" card with did you make you dinner reservations? don't forget your passport..etc...vs. a brochure.

 

For the Welcome Bags we are doing bags like the steve maddenn ones...that cloth and putting maps of the atlantis,  custom water, frisbee, underwater camera and maybe one or 2 other things.

For the favors which will be given out at the welcome party or possibly the reception are either custom beach towels with tags saying "take me home" or atlantis candles that are custom to us at all..i find i throw all the custom stuff out eventually and find a lot of it cheesy.

 

Thats all my ideas for now. Any/All of yours are appreciated. :)

xo-

Kara

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
