  1. Thanks everyone, this is all very helpful! I think I might have it professionally pressed before we leave, then carry it in the garment bag on the plane and hope for the best! I've already contacted our carrier, they don't have a closet or anything but I hope to be able to lay it out. The thing I'm most concerned about regarding the steamer is that the dress won't dry out - because of the humidity, once its steamed, will it stay damp? Is that a silly concern? BTW, the dress is satin with chiffon overlay - the satin is the part I'm concerned about. Has anyone used a steamer in a damp climate with good (and dry!) results?
  2. I'm getting married at the Grand Oasis Marien, DR in April and my fiance is worried about her wedding dress arriving wrinkled. How have you prevented it being crushed? Should we have it pressed before we leave? The resort isn't able to do it at their laundry. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated, especially by my fiance! Thanks! :-)

  4. We are getting married on April 12, 2012 at the GOM in Puerto Plata. We have all of documents (2 Birth Certificates, 2 Notarized Single Avadivits, 2 Passports and 1 Divorce Certificate) ready to get translated and Legalized. Our question is that we can send our documents to the DR Consulate in Montreal, Canada and it will cost us 700.00 US to get it done. But our Resort says for the same thing to get done there on the resort, it will cost 350.00 US. Sounds like an easy chose looking at the numbers, but we arrive there late on Thusday the 8th of April and that leaves us Friday to get the documents done. The resort says they will have a lawyer reserved and booked, but I am a glass empty person at times, and was wondering which option is best for us. If anyone has advice or experience in this topic...PLEASE let me know what you people did or recommend. Thanks, Ken

  6. Thanks Matt and Lea for your response and help. We have looked into the Tommy Bahama site and they do have a store in Vancouver, which may work, because unfortunantly the stores in the US online do not shipto Canada. Luckly we know what we are looking for, bridesmaid's dresses are sunflower color and my groomsmen will be wearing Orange button up shirts, and right now most stores are not caring the bright spring and summer colors in their shirts....so we will keep looking for sure and if there are any other websites/stores out there that we may find our shirts please let me know!!! Thanks again Matt and Leah. All the best Ken & Carla
  7. Good day brides and grooms!! I am here to try and help my future wife!! We live in Canada and my fiance is having trouble shopping for my wedding shirt and my grooms mens shirts as well. We are getting married on a beach in DR and she wants me in Black pants with a nice white short sleeved buttoned shirt that will be outside of the pants and my grooms men will be wearing yellow or a light color button up shirts as well. The white shirt should not be a problem to get, but the yellow/light color shirts, we are not having much luck in finding. If someone can tell us a store or web site that we can order some real nice shirts from, that would be such a help to us. Thanks for your time and help. Ken

  9. Hello all. Me and my soon to be wife have a date booked at the Grand Oasis Marien Resort for April 12, 2010. We have been checking reviews for a long time, but if anyone has any experiences or tips to help us plan this special day, we would greatly appreciate it. Anyone who have or will be married at this resort, your stories would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Ken

    Guilt for Chosing DW

    Congrats on the engagement and future wedding!! This has also happened in our families. We are from different parts of Canada, me on the East Coast and Her on the West Coast. We knew there would be grumbling behind the closed doors, not to our faces!!! And we prepared ourselves the best we could for that. This wedding is you and your husbands day, and it only makes sense that you get a beautiful wedding and honeymoon at the same time. You will never make everyone happy, and not everyone will be able to make it to your wedding, so what we are going to do, is have a reception with family when we get back to Canada so they can feel apart of celebration. The only guilt I think we will have is when we are inviting people...I feel bad asking people to spend lots of money to travel outside their Country to come to our wedding, just don't want people to feel obligated or guilty if they can not make it. Good Luck!! Ken

    April 2010 Wedding Grand Oasis Marien, DR!!!

    Thanks for the welcome, I do appreciate it. And I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions as we move forward to our wedding day. I know the missus has her wedding dress bought, but she is still not 100% positive in what she wants me dressed in!!! The black pants and white shirt has come up in conversation for our beach wedding, but she is still debating. So if anyone has any ideas, pictures that could help her in her dressing me decision!!! for our wedding, that would be great. Thanks and have a great start to the Fall Season!! Ken
  12. Hello fellow grooms/brides!!! Not sure if there are many grooms on this site, but I figured since my fiance joined this site, I would also. This way we both can work together to get help planning this destination wedding. We are both from St. John's, NL, Canada and we had a tough time finding a resort at first, because there are so many nice ones in the DR, but luckly our wedding date is booked, along with our resort!!! And we can't wait:-) I look forward to our April 12, 2010 day, but until then, I know we have a lot of stuff left to do, and we are so lucky to have this forum here, incase we get stuck somewhere during this journey. Cheers!!! Ken
