    Hey Polly!

    You said you booked Rashel right? So are you paying a vendor fee to have her come in?

    Happy Planning Future Brides!

    Love, Mrs. Gedney! <3

      I assume I have to..I just reserved her first because I figured that part was important to me and I know she's pretty popular and I like what she does....I haven't talked or planned anything with Laura the coordinator here in Toronto yet...

      But I have read the policy and procedure part and it does sound a little alarming...but I called Laura and she did tell me only decor vendors and florist are not allowed
      So hope all turns out alright.....

      I'm just going to go out on a limb here and assume there is a charge for both. I don't think there is anything they don't charge extra for :(

      As far a photography goes I took your advice and emailed a few photographers that I like (checked out their websites before hand) They have all replied VERY quickly. Just a few options for those who are looking, I found all these photographers on FaceBook

      Dean Clarke
      Stacey Clarke
      Merrick Cousley
      Brian Nejedly
      Jamaica Wedding Photos

      Oh and you were right about the vendor fees. Most of them cover up to $350 of it!

      Dean Clarke by far. His work is beautiful! I haven't seen one picture I didn't like... Oh I hope he is within budget... But if he doesn't cover the vendor fee that will be a tough one for me. He hasn't sent me his rates yet.

      Who are you leaning towards?

      I agree!!!!!

       

      BUT I only heard about him a couple of days ago and when I emailed him he advised he's booked on my day! :(

       

      Don't blame him! We are 6 months away! I really have to start locking down vendors!

       

      This year alone, my Fi and I have purchased a home, I started a new and demanding job, I had to learn to cook LOL or my future hubby would starve! LOL Learn to clean, etc....LOL!!

       

      FYI, I never lived on my own (came from my family home) AND I never lived with a boyfriend or anything LOL so it's a whole new experience!

       

      They say don't have a baby the same year you're getting married BUT they should also tell you don't buy a house the same year you're getting married! There's just so much to do all the time!

       

      I really like Merrick Cousley but I'm waiting to hear from him because of my date change - hope to hear back soon!

       

      I'm also looking at Dwayne Watkins....waiting to hear from him too!


      Happy Planning Future Brides!
