We are tipping even those that we normal wouldn't if using standard tipping conventions:

 

Photgrapher & Assistant: $100 and $50 respectively. weâ€ve gone back and forth on this one, but these are the people capturing our memories.  If tipping take their work to 110% instead of just 100% then itâ€s worth it. We just havenâ€t decided when to give the tip. I think timing is everything with this one and we might give it to them when they show up inside of a card. 

 

Wedding Coordinator: TBD $50-$100 dependent on overall satisfaction and will tip the day after the wedding inside of a thank you card

 

Officient: $20 after ceremony with thank you card

 

Dedicated Bartender Cocktail hour: $50 after event

 

Waitstaff for Cocktail Hour and Reception: $20 per person

 

I think that's it.

So I successfully went 22 months without having a Bridezilla moment, and then I had an alterations snafu that put me over the edge… Five weeks into the alteration process I show up for my 3rd fitting to find out the my seamstress didnâ€t complete that alterations from my second fitting –WTF.  I think the dialog was something like this “Iâ€m so sorry this never happens†really because it just did and I leave in two weeks and my dress isnâ€t done. This is isnâ€t a moment where Iâ€m happy to be an exception.  “I just get so busy with prom season and somehow it fell off my radarâ€.  I donâ€t care. I hate to sound like a B!tch but Iâ€m pretty sure most would agree that a wedding/marriage will trump a prom any day. What kind of system do you have that my dress just falls off your radar for the past 12 days? This is unacceptable.   â€œWhen can you make it back in for you 3rd fitting†tomorrow evening. “I donâ€t know if I have any openings†well I think you need figure out something to make it work.

 

So much for loving my seamstress.  I have my 3rd fitting tonight and hopefully it will be my last.  In reality Iâ€m no further ahead or behind with my alterations, but in that moment I was pretty miffed.

Tova!

Omg the same thing happened to me! I am so sorry to hear about this. I completely agree that a wedding dress should TRUMP all! Obviously this is the most important dress a girl will ever wear! Hopefully everything goes well tonight and you will forget about this kerfuffle.

This is what happened to me:

I showed up for my second fitting and she wasn't there. I called and she "forgot" Same thing, so busy with prom/grad dresses! Omg i almost lost my mind. I held back a little knowing that she still has my dress and I don't want her to do bad things!

So I reschedule, and I try on the dress and it still wont stay up. She is saying bc i have boobs, that its hard to keep the dress up.

It is a strapless silk dress, so no boning to help support. I am shocked that I can pay $1800 for a designer dress and it doesn't have the capability to stay up bc i have boobs? She put the sewn in cups in, size B cups. I was just measured at Victoria secret as a 32DD. I don't understand how she thinks the size B cups are going to hold me up. Needless to say I go back tonight, and I am beyond stressed, I leave in 10 days and I don't have a dress that will stay up!

 

Let's check in tomorrow and hopefully we both have a happy ending to this ordeal.

Yes, I am back! The wedding and honeymoon (we flew over to one of the other Cayman Islands called Cayman Brac) was fantastic.  I don't think I could have dreamed up a more perfect day, for real. Even at our reception on the rooftop of the hotel facing the ocean, we saw a shooting star! Come on, now that has to mean something, right?  hehe  1000

    • Did you have to contact photo editing services?
    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
