I'm working on: OOT Bags (just starting to gather items... got the bags last week), Shoes, Grooms Attire....

 

Most importantly, I keep going back and forth on videography. I am so cheap but I know deep down I should do it since so much of my family isn't coming. (We only invited immediate family.) I just have so much trouble thinking about spending a thousand dollars on video! I could get the cheap sort of cheesy resort videographer for $450, ceremony only. Or, a nice short form 25-50 minute video, four hours of coverage for $900 after external vendor fees... or six hours of coverage, short form video, and highlights video for around $1,300 after vendor fee.... that amount of money makes me want to faint! I almost just want to give someone a flip camera but I know that probably isn't a good solution.

 

How about you??

 i promise you have no idea how cheap, frugal, thrifty i am. ( my fiancee is not a big picture person at all) so alll that would be a waste for me, now if i do any it wll be smallest package for pictures which is like  355.00 for  18 pictures, we did decided(not for pricewise) but more actually for sentimental reasoons, too do the custom disposable cameras, this will allow our guest to take pictures as they see us and then i may just add the videography

Ohhhh your talking to the right chick about OOT bags..  what kind of bags did you get.. what are you putting them???   I am O B S E S S E D  with my bags :) hahaha     as for the video.....  I haven't even thought about doing it... while I do think it might be nice to have one - I would never watch it so I can't see spending a lot of money on something that will never get used.....     Will you ever watch it?  Will having it to watch make you feel happy?  Will you see it lying around and only think.. that was an expensive paper weight?

Invitations.... well that's still up in the air. I had high hopes of having them out by the end of next month.

 

What time frame are you all using for RSVP dates?

 

I'm with you! My wedding is in May and I can't decide what to do with invitations. I want passport but also want something more formal. FI suggested using the passports as a before we leave booklet for people who book and are coming to the wedding to save money lol. What are you thinking about with your invites?

That sounds great.  Let me know what you hear from your WC.  We are hoping to have 40-50 people and the ceremony is at the gazeboo with the reception on the beach.  A smaller wedding sounds less stressful to me.

    • Hey. Well, I would say that for a honeymoon, Florida is not a particularly good option. My preference in such cases is the paradise islands where you can actually to be alone. If I chose where to fly, my recommendations about choice were Seychelles. Just look at the reviews of these islands, and you will immediately fall in love with them. Also, there are only great hotels such as (https://savoy.sc/blog/honeymoon-in-seychelles/) and many others. My wife and I visit this country every year and try to combine different hotels, and this one is very worthy.
    • 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
