Hey girls, 

I am brining in an outside vendor for hair and make up and I had no idea the fee was $300!! I thought it was around $60.......

I am pretty sure it is $60 for someone to come to the resort for the day so why couldn't the outside vendor we are bringing(whether it be for make up or photography ect.) just say they are a guest of the wedding? 

Thats what Ill try to do, I can't imagine paying another $300 on top of what I am paying for hair and makeup-maybe I should have looked into this more before I booked my MUA-lol

Hey,

congrats first of all. Were planning our wedding for April 4,13. I have asked around and its cheaper to fly out a photographer. Were in kitchener waterloo area and have a great photographer thats willing to do our photos for the week for the cost of his trip. If your interested. As well as far as DJ goes I think were using the hotel one for $300 (3hours)

Hi brides 2013!!!!

Were super excited that we booked with GP for April 4,2013

Ceremony: 4pm beach

Reception: 6pm Blue lagoon

 

Now I have a few questions if anyone can answer them. First off I just contacted the WC, she told me I need to get our legal documents notarized? Has anyone else had to do this if so how do I go abouts to finding someone to do this? As for the reception does the resort offer anything as far as name tags? programs? any sort of decoration for center piece?

 

I was able to find a photographer in town (kitchener waterloo) thats willing to do our photos and trash the dress for the cost of his flight and accommodation, how ever editing when we get back is extra. Hes willing to bunk with anyone which saves us. If anyone is interested.

 

As for the DJ? I know its $300 (for 3hours) has anyone heard good or bad? And was thinking of steel drum band?

 

I did book my hair already, debating if I should get make up done there or do it myself. But a 10% discount was applied to our deposit of 50% for hair.

 

Anyone know what are the chances for room upgrade for bride and groom? The honeymoon suite with the out door shower looks amazing =)

I was just at a wedding in Mexico few weeks ago, and the bride there told me to make sure to give extra time for hair. They may be a little slower there what we are used to. She had her hair apt for 12 and was out at 3 which made her rush for her 4pm ceremony. Hope that helps. The prices are CRAZY expensive

I got the quote from the hotel band and they told me that it was $300 per hour and a minimum of 3 hours.  I am not sure about the documents being notarized.  I have sent in a scanned copy of our driver license and birth certificates and I didn't get a response about anything else being needed.  I guess I should email the WC and check.

 

If you hear about anything else being needed please let me know.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
