November 2012 Brides?

Recommended Posts

Well our ceremony is at 4 as well- it was either 2 or 4.  So hopefully we will be fine with taking the majority of our pics before the wedding so we will really only need family pics after the ceremony and then some sunset ones! fingers crossed!!

here's a (non-pro!) photo that was taken right after our ceremony (about 4:30). You can see the sun is pretty low - we got some nice sun-flare shots, but I wish we'd had more light.

I only have 1 pro pic back so far, she sent me an early preview. I should have the full preview by next week! My photog has been emailing me that the pics keep making her cry and she's having a hard time editing them - I think that's a good sign.

I've been back for a few days now...had to get back to normal.  Our wedding at Aventura Cove Palace was AMAZING!  I could not have asked for anything better.  It was windy that day, which was the only thing I would change (but of course couldn't).  My coordinator was awesome, the ceremony and reception were beautiful and everyone had a great time.  It by far exceeded my expectations!

 

If anyone has any questions, please let me know!  I know I was freaking out before we left, but I promise, everything will fall in to place!!  I'm happy to answer any questions or give tips on how to make some things go more smoothly, just let me know!

I'm so glad it was fabulous Maridr! I was glad the wedding was over, but not glad to get back home to normal life lol Although now I look at my dress (waiting to go to the cleaners), and I want to wear it all over again!

Oh wait...the only thing I meant about resuming normal life was finally having disposable income again and not thinking about the what ifs and wedding planning details every moment of the day lol! I'm so happy to be able to go out and shop if I want to, before it was all about saving $! I haven't gotten around to getting my gown cleaned either. Are you having yours preserved?

well, then in that case I agree with you 100%!! lol 

 

I haven't decided what I want to do with my gown. I really think I want to do a day-after or bridal shoot, or a TTD at some point. Mostly because I want to wear it again!!!!! And then I might try to sell it. As much as I love it, I can't see it sitting in a dress coffin in the top of my closet for the rest of my life...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
