@@JenniferH114 totally makes sense. We only had the photographer come 30 minutes early to the room because we didn't want to pay for the extra hours. She came at 2pm photgrapher for about 30 minutes...then went to the pier to get the shots ahead fo the ceremony and we got married at 3pm. If you have the photgrapher coming that early you definitely may want to go earlier :)

@@saramatthews  that is what I was thinking with the photographer.  Doing 30 min of getting ready shots (I don't care about those shots too much) and then a 30 min first look.  Did you do a first look too?  The photographer said 30 min of getting ready shots is not enough, but I have seen it done and it works.  Maybe more time for the first look so we have more time to spend with our guests....

Just jumping in. We had scheduled 'getting ready shots' for 1 hour. By the time she came from the boys room we had maybe 45 mins. I'm trying to recall if I actually

had the whole 45 mins as I know the shuttle came for our 3pm ceremony and it

Takes 10 mins but did we start on time? Lol. So my feelings are if you want only 30 mins it will work if it's a full 30 mins of pictures. If half of that is getting you to the ceremony/ first look site you may be disappointed. She took some getting ready, some of my special items, some of me and the girls and some of me alone. These are some of my most favorite shots. I think you'll appreciate them too :)

 

I had the opposite problem. They wanted us to start at 11 for 3pm. And I made them switch it to 10!! Which a small lunch in there we didn't get back to the room until 130-140 and photographer came for 215 ish. Thankfully I changed my times. I had 4 of us for hair and makeup.

so i just spoke to jessica because i wanted to see what were my option for centerpieces, the ones they offer go up to 145 dollars if you want nice ones....since I'm going to have a lot of guests i thought maybe if i did a single vase with a single flower under water that would be cheaper.... i sent her these pics

did you ask for a specific type of flower? perhaps it's the vase rental that increases the price?

@@Giocivs88 - We are renting three sets of the vases in the last photo you posted (or the equivalent) and Jessica said it'd only be $12 per set ($4 per vase). We are making our own centerpieces though, so we are literally just renting the empty vases.

 

Here's what we are doing:

 

Centerpiece made by my mom :)

I remember reading earlier in this thread that girls have used her and loved it. I contacted her and she is pricier than a few others - a 6 hour shoot is $5250. her photos are pretty amazing.

@@upstatekj @@Giocivs88 - I thought her photos looked really great, but her prices were really high. We weren't looking to skimp on pictures but $5000+ is over double what other photogs we liked were charging., Plus we knew we wanting the six hour shoot to capture the whole day.

@@saramatthews

Hi I was wondering if the makeup artist did any contouring? Also what did you use for your ceremony songs? How many do we need? I'm not really sure? The groom and ushers will be waiting, so then we need one for the bridal party then another one for myself?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
