      Hey, I've never used it before, but I read somewehere on here that girls ordered dresses from them and they liked it.

      And I have not tried them on :(

      Second dress is from Nordstrom. And it is my favourite this week :D. Dress number 1 was favourite last week.

      It is so hard to make a decision.

        Do you think you maybe got some of the orignial samples from BTR? I worked as a temp for Northern Reflections for a couple of months and they had a sample sale. They had various sizes all the time, not just the model size. Sometimes they were off a bit from each other, arm length, dress length, width, stuff like that.

          Thanks Torilynnsmith!! FI and I will need to sit down and write down a list of what we want. Would love to find a photographer to take pics all week long. Also, looooved the DIY tissue pomander balls link! I think I will try to make them this weekend :)

          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

           

          http://diytissuepomanders.weebly.com/   -- you could do these ones flat as well and just fluff the flowers when you get down there, it is very time consuming though, but it you use a heavy enough wire gauge you do now need a glue gun!!!!!  Also for my lovely canadian ladies who may want to do these, Dollarama has LARGE styrofoam balls now and depending on size they are $1 each or 2 for $1.  Unfortunately they didnt have these when we did them for my friends wedding and we paid $4+ a ball at walmart!!!

          They get "squished" a little but are easy enough to "fluff" up when you get to where you are going!

           

          I tried an entirely tule one and it looked too much like a body pouf you use in the shower (said fi) so we skipped those!

           

           

          Another version is the "flat" ones

            Their all gorgeous!!! But I love the second one, mostly because I'm a big fan of lace! It's very elegant looking. Have you had a chance to try any of these on? Or dresses similar to the these?

              I stayed at the Encore, which is the replica of the Wynn Hotel on the outsite. Clean, doesn't smell much smoke walking through casino on weekends. Food is great there!!!! What hotel are you staying at?

                What a coincidence!! I am leaving for vegas on saturday night.  I am there for work though!

                 

                We are staying at Mandalay bay this time. But I have stayed at NYNY(fun), Paris (lovely but kinda old) , and Stratosphere (sketchville, its gross, stay away!!)

                I HIGHLY recommend that you check out the Cosmopolitan. their restaurants are AMAZING and the hotel itself is soooo gorgeous.  It was too pricy to stay there this time but I am definitely considering it for a girls weekend if I can ever make that happen with my besties!

                 

                Also for sightseeing and such: check out the fountains in front of belaggio at night, Fremont St (old vegas strip) at night.  Some of the hotels have day passes for their pools, and often have day time parties going on which are fun!

                 

                Mandalay bay, luxor, NYNY, Ventian, they ALL have things that are worth seeing if you just want to sight see.

                 

                For shopping, there are 2 outlet malls each are about a 15 minute cab or a short bus ride down the strip. Totally worth the trip unless you want high end shopping, then there is LOTS of that on the strip (The shops connected to Bellagio and the ones in Venitian are to die for!)

                 

                ummmmmm. what else. wear comfy shoes everywhere you go.  hot heels seem like a great idea in vegas but it NEVER is. the hotels and strip are MASSIVE and everything is further away than it looks. You will do tonnes of walking.  I brought cute little ballet flats or wedges to wear at night with cocktail dresses last time and it was soo much better on my legs and feet.

                Its also SUPER dry there and you need to drink twice as much water. I always forget this and I get dehydrated.  especially if you are drinking.  Sometimes I forget its a DESERT lol.

                 

                Have such a great time! Cant wait to hear how their Vegas wedding was!
