Rivierabride's Planning Thread 10/27/15

Recommended Posts

@@RivieraBride15 Sorry to hear about your dress issues and the resort communication!  I've heard countless brides say that everything just comes together once you're there.  So as hard as it is right now, try not to stress too much.

 

Are there any threads for your resort on BDW where other brides might be able to weigh in?

Actually, I made some progress with them last night.  Once I said let's start from scratch they started to work with me a little.  WIth the info that I was given about the sunsets, I was able to set some times. 

 

Here is what they gave me:

 

4:00 - ceremony

 

4:15 - 5:00 photos

 

5:00-6:00 cocktail hour

 

6:00 reception

 

Feeling a little better about things!!

@@RivieraBride15  Are you using an outside photographer, or the resort's? I agree with @@calgarybride2015  That sounds like a tight photo schedule. We're in the same boat as you. We're 6 including hubbs and me and we're having our renewal at 4:30 because we lose the light at 6:15 or so. Your ceremony won't last more than about 15 minutes and for group shots with a small number it won't take long but 45 minutes does seem a bit tight if you want shots of just you and the new hubby. Could you maybe shave just 15 minutes off the cocktail hour? I'm using a coordinator that uses this site and she suggested a couple of shots, letting guests go on ahead to the restaurant and having a half hour or so on our own, then joining them at the restaurant for the last half hour or so.

 

Don't know if something like that would work for you or not. Just a suggestion, maybe something to think about.

Our friend, who is also our photographer, will be doing our photos.  Any photos of rings, dress, etc...will actually be done the day before the wedding to get those out of the way.  As for the cocktail hour, guests will go ahead and we will join them after our photos are done. 

 

I made it very clear, since we have so many people that can't make it....that my photos are sooo important to me.  So I will take as much time as i need to get those done :)

Great! That's what is most important! Something like that is too important to be pushed with timing!

Congrats! The time will go quickly!

 

I was just reading back through your thread and wondering which resort you picked? I can't find it anywhere. You're just a week after us and 2 weeks after @maybeoneday  October is a popular month!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
