Top of the Morning,

To be honest I Didn't!!!! There was one gurl that stood out to me and we seen her everyday!!!! WE drop some to her.. BUT be clear thisis TOTAL on YOU And your Partner If you want to give You can and if you don't, YOu don't have to... To make it easier on you.. I would have one person to hold $$$ envelope's for you.. at the end of partying and before they start to clear/pack up I would just hand them the tip that way..

I will say Make sure you put Someone else you really can trust in charge of YOUR phone.. I was getting all kinda calls about where are you walking in the port at, how long do we have to wait for this, blah blah.. If you have someone that you can trust PLEASE do so..

UMM I Pray you get the same gurl I did. she was soooo nice and helpful, and set things up how I wanted them well I had my mom make sure everything was right..

Paper work.. If you don't follow nooooooo advice following this: Print everything out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They had some of my people off the list or the names backwards..

When you leave the theater u will have to walk through so many people to get up stirs to the Club, gurl get your Thank You's ready... You will get a million..

Oh take someone around with you when you are getting your pix done, and if they have a mirror to hold for you that would be great too.. They don't Photoshop all pix or NONE if they don't want to my smart mouth guy said.. But u just want to make sure your gloss is good, your hair is in place, the girls are up, extra,...

im sooooo Happy for you and I cant wait to see your pix boooo.. Now GO DO THAT!!!! and never forget your 5 mins to your self, it will be a million things going on but for you and your thoughts they need to get CALM, the day will go SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO fast trust US past Brides, time would be the only thing I NEEEEDED/ WANTED / WOULD HAVE LOVED TO HAVE MORE OFF...

Our guy did nearly all of ours even though he knew we weren't going to purchase everything. He even included a couple of the before's so we could see the difference(s).

After he took the photos of the wedding and around the ship how/when did you go to look at them and decide which package you were going to buy?

I keep thinking about how Sasha said that the wedding party has to arrive at the port dressed and ready for ceremony. Tima, did your bridal party do this? It sounds like disaster with them getting out of cars, carrying luggage, etc.

Not to butt in on Shatima (Hey, Girl!) but even with our delay due to Customs, our MOH and BM had time to get dressed. And this was after a 10-15 minute rehearsal after we boarded.

Considering the chaos that can come with the boarding process and the sitting and waiting (ie: getting dresses wrinkled), I'd suggest that your ladies get dressed on board, frankly. If they've already got their hair and makeup done, they really should have enough time to put on their dresses. Just make sure you have enough space!

Thanks for the advice and timeline of that part of the day! They are fun short dresses that they should be able to throw on.
