    What's your first dance song?

    We chose - Swing life away by Rise Against (accoustic Version) Or there are a couple by Brad Paisley that are awsome too... Im having a hard time with the Mother/ Son song.... His mother chose this song called "the man you've become" by god only knows who and my FI refuses to dance to it and hasn't spoken to his mom about it yet... But it's like Disney all the way and we hate it... Makes us feel like we should be in Little Mermaid.... Urrrgh

    DW NIGHTMARE you never think this will happen to you

    I am an emotional mess and burst out in tears the moment anyone metions my wedding. I've just been informed that now I get the bottom of the barrel selection for a ceremony time and date because of my "so called" late booking. So we get married in Punta Cana now the day before we leave. I am a hair away from cancelling the entire thing. I just can't deal with it.

    TRust me I called Air Transat and they upright REFUSE to talk to the public because I went through an agency.... I was bounced back and forth between departments for over an hour getting nowhere because nobody "deals with these situations"... It's just NUTS....

    DW NIGHTMARE you never think this will happen to you

    My beach bags are silk screened!!! So this is the second DATE change already and these are my second set of bags I've ordered. We are just going to make a joke of it )Make the best of the situation) and SHARPI the 7 into a 9, cross out puerto plata and write punta cana on them. I AM NOT buying beach bags for a 3rd time. My luggage tags are just paper and Im going to just re-do them myself.... As far as everything else, Im just going to have to Run with it.. I suppose is my FI and I can get through this...we can get through anything.... My eyes were so puffy yesterday I could barely see.... Just Nuts. My TA is not offering any compensation either other then sending us to Punta cana at no extra charge. And at this point I am SOOOO over confrontation and arguing ... I just want to get there and enjoy myself with my FI, family and friends... I can't believe this has happened.. It seems like a dream, really...
  11. Late yesterday afternoon I recieved a phone call from my TA who proceeded to tell me that our flight (Air Transat) had been CANCELLED to puerto plata from Nov 3-10. At first I thought she was just playing a sick joke on my... I HAD 34 DAYS TO GO and then this bomb was dropped that threw my wedding up in the air. Not only was my flight cancelled but every flight out of calgary was cancelled up until NOV 24th and there was no wedding availablility for that week... SO WHAT NOW... Panic set in, hyper-ventilation, anger, saddness, pitty, desperation. You name it I was feeling it. The wedding itself is still up in the air . My travel agent ofcourse feels so badly she is almost willing to do anything to make me happy. We have no had to choose a different destination, we chose Punta Cana because we have already done all our legal documents and because I went through the consulate directly they are willing to re-do them at no charge. We had to choose another hotel, so we decided to stay with the Riu chain and chose the Riu Bambu. The only thing thats still up in the air is the ceremony date and time. Im preying that they can accomidate us to still legally get married. The only thing is now our departure date has changed from Nov 3 to Nov 5th. So I've got to call each and everyone of my 36 guests and explain over and over again .... The other thing that is a bummer is all my personalised beach bags, luggage tags, travel mugs EVERYTHING says Riu Mambo puerto plata, NOV 7th... You hear about this stuff happening to someone else but never in a million years think it will happen to you!!! AIR TRANSAT is to blame and when I called them for information NOBODY would talk to me, Nobody would exlpain how this happens or why and there is NO COMPENSATION on thier part.... CRAZY!

    FS- Fuschia/ Sunshine BM Dresses x3

    I bought them from JCPENNY.com.... After paying the shipping and american exchange the dressess were 90.00 each,,,, So, I really only want to make my $$ back if I can.... They are out of stock on these ones now otherwise I would've just ordered and extra dress to use for fabric to cover up them boobies but I couldn't cause they were all out. So if anyone wants them I will sell for 90.00 each and I will seperate them. If they aren't gone by this week, Im sending them back to JCpenny.

    Between Ceremony & Reception

    My reception is at 2pm as well.. I was so worried about it before. BUT, there is so much to do on the resorts and people are going to want to have a little time to freshen up etc. in between the ceremony and reception anyways. Also, if you have pictures it will take a couple hours as well. So lets says your ceremony is at 2 - pictures will be from 3 - 5 and then dinner/ reception at 6 so I wouldn't worry too much about it
