@@KBrown I was really happy with my make up. I upgraded to airbrush and it was totally worth it. It was pretty hot during the day. I also ended up in the pool (most of the bridal party did) and my make up did not run at all...kinda crazy! haha

@@snswedding2016 did you get a DJ for the reception? How did you find him if so?

Hello ladies! I'm so happy to have found this site! We're getting married at AF this summer of July 2016! I couldnt be more excited and nervous as it gets closer! I have something I'm debating on and would love to get some input from you guys. So I got the Memorable Moments pure glamour package & I'm debating on whether I should go down to the Always & Forever since I'm only going to have about 10 guests. I'm stuck in between saving my arm and leg & just adding things to the always & forever or just keeping it. It doesn't look like we'll be having a private event since you need at least 16 ppl so I'm wondering whether I should pay for the MM package. Help! Any tips or suggestions?

Hi @@Rubyy xx first off congrats!

 

I feel like if u don't mind spending that much for only 10 guests then that's fine for you but personally I wouldn't be splashing out on that much when you can save so much more money and u can have your own input and ideas on your decor xx

@@sassylouxx thanks I appreciate you! That's what I was thinking. Especially since I'm not having a private dinner due to the amount of ppl going so the reception has to have the restaurant decor.

@@Rubyy I would go with the basic Always and Forever package and just add on from there. You can always add on the elements of the pure glamour package that you love separately without having to have everything that the package includes. You could also pick and choose from different packages (ex. chandelier from pure glamour and chair covers from vintage elegance). It allows you to have more flexibility and will definitely be cheaper for you especially if you're only using it for the ceremony. 

 

Happy planning!! :)

@@sassylouxx thank you! Have you looked into a photographer? I chose one that the resort provides, hope they do great!

 

@@snswedding2016 Thank you so much for your response!! You all have definitely been a great help to me! Is there spray tanning at the spa? I already set up my appt for hair and makeup there at the spa. I hope my face doesn't melt off, I heard it was very hot & humid there.

@@Rubyy I agree 100% with @@snswedding2016! That's actually what we are doing. We have 50+ people and it was just too expensive to go with one of the packages so we added what we needed and are bringing most of our decor. You can literally add anything you want from one of the MM packages individually - I like that you can customize it as much as you'd like.

 

I don't know if there is spray tanning at the resort - it isn't on the spa package so I would assume no. I personally would be very scared to spray tan due to the amount you will be in the water, the sweating, etc. I plan to tan in beds before we go so I have a nice glow for our wedding.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
