+1 to PP recommendation, that website is a lifesaver when it comes to vendors.

as for the suit, it’s way less expensive to rent for a week than I thought! Our groomsmen are renting vents and pants (Vera Wang Black line) for like $75 from the Thursday before we leave until the Tuesday after we get back…so 12 days! so I’m sure the full suit wouldn’t be too expensive.

I’d go the same way as with local vendors. Is your destination Ireland? In that case you don’t even have a language barrier to deal with!

Our wedding is semi-destination (4 hour drive), and I must have gone through the portfolio of every single photographer in the state of Vermont (including Craigslist ones) before I found our amazing husband and wife team. I then sent them an email, we set up a time to do a videochat via google hangouts (which lasted almost 2 hours!), and since we clicked right away we signed the contract and put down the deposit wihin the next couple of days. It’s really not bad!

Now hair and makeup? That’s a completely different story, and I’m stressing out about it as well. πŸ™

We are getting married in Roatan. We found a wedding planner that will take care of every detail with in our budget. She is actually cheaper than if i tried to do it myself or  thru the resort. You should look on the web to see if there is one in Antigua. I bet there is. πŸ™‚ Good luck to you!

@AntiguaBride14:  I’m bringing a photographer with me from here in Ontario Canada. She’s a friend of mine so that helped me with one less stress.

 

My wedding is at a resort and there is an option to do my hair and make up there, however i am a very simple person so I have been looking up hair styles online and my make up, if I choose to wear any, will be extremely simple and something one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man or Maid/Matron of Honor can do for me or my mom. My Maid/Matron of Honor or my mom will also do my hair saving the expense and worry of it not turning out the way I want when I get there.

Our guys aren’t wearing suits as our wedding is on the beach and is extremely simple. I purchased shirts and pants we are having hemed into shorts for the guys from my local walmart for 25 bucks each.

2 options, fly someone out or hire a local vendor.   A lot of the resorts have their own Destination Wedding photographer, but I was not a fan of their work.  I also went on bestdestinationwedding.com to do some research, especially for hair and makeup.  I just googled photographers in Cabo and contacted a bunch of them, looked at their work, and correlated that with our budget.  I think we got a good one πŸ™‚

Here is some of her work for your reference

@AntiguaBride14:  Hey there…if you’re intersted, I’m a destination wedding photographer. πŸ™‚ I got into it because before I got married, I was living in a very seperate corner of Europe and people wanting photographers who spoke English were having a very hard time. So I jumped into the niche. It can definitely be tough finding photographers, especially with all the costs and such…but, heck, it’s worth a shot. I’ve shot weddings in 5 countries across three continents this past year, so this is more or less my specialty :). You can find my work here: http://www.levitijerina.com
