      Hi Ladies,

       

      For those of you working with Theresa the wedding planner. Do you know how much she charges? If you have already put down a deposit with the romance office do you lose it?


      Can't wait to marry my best friend and love of my life...

        Hi ladies

         

        Sorry for the confusion, but everyone is talking about Theresa the wedding planner. Who is she? How and is she affiliated with the romance team? Sorry for the confusion, Im trying to keep up lol.

          Hi Ladies, I just bought a living social deal for Personalized Stamps. I thought it was a great price given that the company that we are getting our invitations from wants to charge $50 for a personalized stamp!!! Who knew invitations were so expensive??? Anyway, I hope that you ladies can use this! Happy Planning! :)

            Thanks! I used Livingsocial to purchase our engagement shoot. We paid $99 and the photographer agreed to accompany us when we go to City Hall to get legally married in the states- so technically its a wedding shoot lol but it was a moment we wanted to document and now we can.

             

            I also plan on purchasing our honeymoon from livingsocial and right now, they are also offering a hardcover 20 page photobook for $9. Can't beat Livingsocial lol

              Hi girls, So my wedding is may 19th and I hear that even though the weather says it's 85 to 88 degrees that it actually feels like 92 to 95 degrees... With that being said, I am a little worried about sweating to death in my wedding dress. The bottom is all tulle. Ugh! Is anyone also worried about over heating on ur wedding day? I was contemplating getting a short white dress to put on half way through the reception. Thoughts?? Suzanne

                Oyyyy. I'm worried too we are in July. LOL What time is everything taking place? Our ceremony is at 5 pm in church and 7 for cocktail and reception at 8:00 pm on beach so I'm hoping it will cool down by then. My dress is tight with heavy beading but it can be a little of an issue. The reception is so short and nothing compares to my dress so in my mind- keep it on girl! Suffer through lol Its once in your life! And then switch into a short reception dress for the after party- if you are intending to keep it going. I know I am. 

                 

                Since we are getting legally married in NY before heading to DR to avoid the headache of getting married there- I purchased a little white cocktail dress from a store called Cache. They had 4 short white options and 2 long, flowy, chiffon looking dresses. I tried all of them on haha. We never did an engagement shoot so we hired a photog to take pics of us in the courthouse. The dress was a little of a splurge at $198 but I intend on wearing it again at the resort, most likely once I take my wedding dress off at the end of the night and get ready to boogie down.

                 

                I don't know how heavy your dress is, or what time of day you are getting married. Those two factors will weigh on your decision- but I think my dress is too fab to take off unless I'm about to pass out. I even joke to my friends about starting a blog called The Perpetual Bride and going everywhere with my dress on- groceries, work, the park...lol

                  So how is everyone feeling about their hair and makeup? Are you guys confident the stylists at the spa will do a good job? I'm particularly worried about the makeup because it will be hot and we will likely be shooting all day and then our ceremony doesn't start till 5PM.

                    I'm totally with you and freaking out!!!! I consider myself a bit of a control freak and the one thing I'm genuinely concerned about is the hair and makeup. Our wedding is on a Sunday and we arrive the Thursday before so I'm planning on doing a trial at some point on Friday. I was actually emailing back and forth with Yoanny, the spa manager, today and the trial for hair and makeup is $126+ tax. It kills me to pay for this but I don't think that I'd rest easy without it so I'm just going to bite the bullet and spend the money!!!! I'm not so much concerned about the weather... it's more about how the makeup will actually look.

                      I am super nervous about jair and make up as well. I am trying a hair and make up but before going down, I am going to go to MAC and have them do my makeup and have one of my bridesmaids come with me for back up. I also had them what make-up they use and they use bodyography if anyone is interested. I am going to try and keep my hair simple but elegant. I am jsut bringing my own products haha might be a little crazy.

                       

                      For the girls with the bridal party drama, I can totally sympathesize. Our best man was all about doing our destination wedding then became unsure about. Then said he wasnt going to go then then he was. The day that the groomsmen went to go try on their outfits. He showed tried on the vest and then not the pants and when we said something to him he said that he wasnt going to go. Then a few days later texted my fiance and said he never asked to be the best man! what a jerk. My thoughts for these are theyre better off not coming and ruining everyone special day!
