Recommended Posts

OMG he did a fantastic job and I am smiling from ear to ear!

Just have to figure out where I should post them :)

I'm so glad you're happy with them :). You can make a gallery on your profile and put them there!

We sort of did engagement photos-we wanted one for our Save the Date. We got engaged in the Bahamas, and did a really fun excursion SUBing-Scenic Underwater Bubble.

 

 

At the end of our excursion the dive company had photos of us for sale for $15, and we decided to use our photo as our "engagement photo".

They aren't necessary. But, we vacationed to Riviera Maya in September. We got pictures taken by the resort photographer we only bought 3, pictures at $15 each. We used one for our save the dates, return labels, and on our website

We also bought pictures when we went zip lining and atving. We put those pics on our website as well

I have no idea re resort credits. Don't think my resort does that. A group excursion would be fun - like a catamaran booze cruise.

We did not do engagement pictures. We had originally planned to but ran out of time. Plus, we knew that we would be engaged for about 2 years before we got married, so that would be a long time in between engagement to the wedding stuff that would get sent out.

I guess It depends on how you value their lives, it is a bit selfish thinking just on us, because pictures are for our children too, aunts, parents, brothers, we never know what will happen tomorrow. each stage in our lives must be remembered by us and others, I delightful enjoy browse through an photo album, memories come back  and I live again, I know amazing stories how just a photo brought joy to a new family  and also know how a lack of pictures made my Grandfather life totally unknown by me, I wish I had just some pictures of my Grand father.

 

So if you just look for someone that can click the button, then It will be almost the same story, but If you find a photographer with great vision and skills to catch your personality then you will have the best pictures to remember you

 

we do not know what's coming don't be selfish

I don't think they are all that necessary, but I think they are really nice to have. I'm not the biggest fan of pictures of myself, but I do really love the formal/professional pictures we have taken. I think in general, they are nice to have.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
