    I actually got these coasters for my entire team at Blue Petal Weddings! Sometimes we need reminding as well, it's a much more emotional job then booking corporate travel or vacations, that's for sure!

     

    Happy planning!

      Since they do not let outside photographers and you are not impressed with the on sight photographers work AND you have a generous photography budget I would definitely start looking into bringing a photographer with you.  Have you checked out photogs in your hometown?  This is the best option as you are able to meet with them personally and discuss what you are looking for.  When we were doing this we found many photogs will get you to pay for your trip AND their regular fees but some will get your to pay for their trip and a "discounted fee" for their services.  There are pros and cons to both options so it is important to get all the details.  For example some of the photographers we spoke to would photograph ALL WEEK LONG.  This was awesome as you would have tons of pictures of your guests (family and friends) and yourselves not JUST from the wedding day.  This would also allow for an excursion photo opportunity, TTD etc.  This can only be said for SOME as some said even though you were paying for their trip and photo fees they would only cover X amount of hours during the trip.  Since you have a good photography budget to work with I would outline the expectations you have ie. TTD session, full day wedding coverage, excursion photos, do you want prints? Albums? or are you ok with a disc?  Videographer... etc.

       

      Once you have these things figured out start looking at photographers work both in your city/province or outside if you like.  Once you have selected some work you like contact those photographers and determine who best suits your needs, budget and expectations!

       

      Best of luck!!!!

      There are two versions of tissue pomanders.  I made a bunch of these for my best friends wedding, we used them as "aisle markers" in the church.  I have a green one I made at home sitting on a vase.  

       

      This is the version I prefer the look of.  This is just one tutorial but depending how you cut or shape the "petals" the pomander can have a completely different look

       



      Hey Ladies!! I found this really cool DIY project from a fellow knottie and thought I share it with you!! I think I might do this for the chairs along the aisle. I've also found a girl on Etsy that made pomander balls out of tissue paper, which may be better for our travels as the pomander balls arrives flat to you and then you would need to "fluff" it up. Here's the website!

                  OOH Kat2012 All 3 are super cute. I love the 2nd one, but I am partial to the lacy-vintagy feeling cocktail dress.  They are ALL gorgeous, have you tried them on?
