    Hey everyone! I am getting married on June 12, 2012 at Sandal's Grande Antigua.  I was wondering if anyone has tips on traveling with a wedding dress?  I really don't want to check my dress and leave it to the mercy of the airline lol.  I was hoping that there is somewhere on the plane that I could hang my dress and take it on and off with me.  Also, we have to have our photography and wedding stuff paid for in the next couple of weeks.  We haven't figured out which photography package to use because we are already spending so much and their photo packages are very pricey.  Is it better to just do something like the al a carte option of 18 5x7 or to get an actual photo package?  Do the photographers make it worth the money you spend to get a photo package?  Right now we are getting married on the beach because I've always dreamed of getting married on the beach.  I would hate to have to switch locations because they don't have a private beach for their guests.  Has anyone gotten married on the beach there recently, or even last June around 4 PM? Was the beach overly crowded?  Is it worth getting married on the beach?  Is it hard to switch locations once you get there, in case we decided to move the wedding?


    Any advise would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Thank you,

      Brittany, Congratulations!!

      We are getting married there a week from today. We are also planning on doing the beach but at 9am. Ebony is our WC and has been great! She said that we can change easily once we get there. Also we decided to not choose a package until we have seen the pictures. And today last minute I decided to go for the video and she added it on with no problem! I bought my wedding gown in Ohio and brought it to Texas with me on the plane with no problems as well, I think it may have been stashed in a overhead bin, but it was fine. I will let you know how it goes once we get back. Let me know if you have any other questions! I am so excited!
