Re: bridesmaids war....

I have a lot of regrets about my bridal party. If I did it over again I'd chose people because I want them there not because I thought they'd get upset if I didn't have them. At the end of the day choose who means the most to you and you think deserves the role of a BM. The other 2 can always be inv...

Re: maggie sottero

I also bought my dress from bridalgown.net, My dress was under the 1000 threshold so I didn't have to pay tax, but some others have said that bridalgown.net has marked their dresses under the 1000 so they don't have to pay tax on it. As for insurance with mine it was all included in the postage pric...

Re: tips for large bridal party

As for dresses I chose the colour and 4 BM's were happy with the colour, the 5th wanted a black dress because she wanted to save money for her school formal dress later that year by using the BM dress thenv! I paid for the...

Re: How would you handle a poor wedding supplier?

Being in the business (possibly biased) I like to make some observations to hopefully prevent reoccurence. I'll preface my comments by saying I have absolutely no idea what really went on here. The arrival time of the Limo. The limo is working from the time you requested them to be at the first pla...

Re: bridalgown.net

I found a dress I liked and looked on bridalgown.net for it and they had it. I asked them to email me a photo of the gown and it was correct and I ordered and it was correct. Basically, look for the designers on bridalgown.net and search them in google, look on their own sites then refer to bridalgo...

Re: How would you handle a poor wedding supplier?

I'm glad you girls agree. I called him today to confirm a few things and mentioned a few things we weren't happy with and he started yelling at me... what a w@nk! I just said to him 'I'm sorry Colin, but I will not talk to you while you are yelling at me, that is very unprofessional of you, I will s...

How would you handle a poor wedding supplier?

Hey Ladies, once again, I ask my fellow WC girls for advice. We had a few bad experiences with our wedding and don';t know if I'm just being pedantic or if my thoughts are understandable. Cars We booked with 1 company, he was so helpful and organised us a 2nd limousine to match his. We got a call fr...

Re: Non pro photographers

At our wedding 2 and a half weeks ago we had heaps of cameras in our faces. I wasn't worried, but when we went for location photos with family etc it was really frustrating when our pro photographer is trying to get photos and everyone else is saying 'look at my camera Mel, look here' I'm like 'No, ...

Re: Fun Photography Shots!

We did some fun shots, lol. We're a bit alternative so our photographer took us to a massive graffiti wall and we just mucked around in front of the camera. Bashing dh with my bouquet was fun, stuffing oreo wafer wrappers down my top wasn't fun, but I'm sure will prove to be a good shot, lol. We als...
