Hey congrats!! Our dates are super close!  My group arrives on May 7 so we might see you there!  I am so excited even though May seems like ages away.  We will have to compare notes with the planning and stuff.  It will be a nice stress relief to chat with another bride going through the same stuff once the real planning starts :)

    Are any of you considering doing a "trash the dress" session with your photographer? I love the idea of taking pictures in that beautiful turquoise ocean but DO NOT WANT TO RUIN my gown! I am starting to consider a second dress (nothing too expensive) that I would change into after the ceremony, dinner and toast is all done...I was thinking I can wear the second gown (of course a lighter fabric) when we are ready to party and dance the night away and then wear it the next day to do the "trash the dress" session...any thoughts on a second gown? I love my wedding gown so much that I'm sure I won't want to take it off but I’m so afraid of ruining it while we drink and dance…

    Hey,

    I was thinking the exact same as you. I purchased a custom made second dress from China for my Trash the Dress Shoot. But I decided last minute to wear my real dress instead. I loved it way to much as was sad I would not be wearing it in half the pics. My dress was satin and organza and it didnt stain at all!

      Any past brides or future brides...what did/are you doing for place cards on tables for dinner reception? I only have 25 guests; about 8 people per table (we have 3 tables) but I do want certain people at certain tables, so I do think I need assigned seating. Do you think I should just order the place cards and have them already placed at each seat?

       

      Any advice would be great! Just wondering what past brides did as well...

      Hi Nicole,

       

      I had a total of 33 people I made starfish place cards and had them pre placed at the table. Everyone found their name and it worked perfect (except Beach Palace did set out the place cards wrong- so i suggest you triple confirm the seating arrangement before the wedding)

      Sounds great.  PM me anytime if you ever have any questions.  These boards are amazing!  So useful and the people on here are always so nice and willing to answer any questions.  So I too am willing to pay it forward.  If you ever have any questions or just want to chat, I'm all ears.

        Really?!  Hmmm I have an appointment for a second dress this week.  I think I'm going to try a few on and see how I feel about purchasing it for the TTD session....I can see myself changing my mind last minute and using my real dress instead also...I can be so indecisive at times! I'll have to really think about this!  My dress is also organza so I'm happy to hear the fabric wasn't ruined!  I'm just concerned about the beading but I'm sure that can be "fixed."  Thank you for the input!

            Oh so cute! Perfect, we'll do the same thing! I ordered sea shell place card holders yesterday. Getting so excited!

              Well if you do get a second one at least you have the options! I posted my second dress on once wed and it sold in a week- so no harm if you get the second one just in case. Besides dress shopping is so fun! :)

               

               

              Enjoy!
