  1. I got my hair and makeup done by Spa Uno. The hair stylist/makeup artist did an amazing job. My hair and makeup were perfect.
  2. Escape Villas operates essentially a compound of villas. So if you have a large group you can rent multiple villas through them, They offer discounts on multiple rentals.
  3. $550 was for the flight, it was another $800 for the villa per person. Contact Fernando, he is great and getting back to people in a timely manner and really helpful.
  4. It was just over $300!!! Loved the dress, loved the price. It was everything I wanted and my husband absolutely loved it!
  5. We are back from our perfect Costa Rican wedding (can't believe it's almost been two months!!!) and I thought I would share some wedding pictures of me in my dress. I had doubt about it after I first bought it but it was the right dress for my special day!!! I bought it at the Coach House Bridal in Waterdown, Ont. and it is a Bonny dress.
  6. I do think it was beautiful, it's just not what I wanted or anything like what I ordered. I had a moment of pure anger but then I decided not to let it ruin my day, and it didn't. Everything else was perfect!! Especially my groom
  7. I could not be happier with the way our cake turned out!!! And tasted!! My only complaint is that I wish I could have taken it home because it tasted so good. Chelsea Brandeau at Mariposa Pastry in Quepos, Costa Rica is amazing at what she does, and so helpful. I would recommend her a thousand times over. (Here is the link to her Facebook group http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mariposa-Pastry/130279440355534) Here is the photo I sent Chelsea of the cake we wanted We asked for square with the bigger layer being banana cake with caramel filling and chocolate ganache, the top ti
  8. So a long time ago I posted my bouquet inspiration. I loved the arrangement I chose and couldn't wait to see how the florist interpreted the photo I sent. Needless to say, I was SUPER disappointed and had a bit of a meltdown when I saw what they brought. It's not that it wasn't beautiful, but it was NOT what I ordered. And to top it off they were an hour and a half late!!! I was getting my hair done when they finally arrived and sent my mom to take pics since it was so hot the flowers had to stay in the fridge. When she came back I flipped, ran upstairs to the fridge and freaked!! And, becau
  9. We are back from an amazing trip!! Wish were still there but missed our puppies like crazy. I will post a full review in a few days when I have some time. The wedding day was everything we imagined, we had the best weather of the trip which meant no rain. There were a few hiccups and one vendor will be getting a terrible review but we didn't let it ruin our day. Our photographer was a blast to work with and I cannot wait to get the pictures (which won't be for a few weeks ) Nadyleah — ask away. Casa de las Brisas was amazing and a place I would recommend. If you need advice on vendo
  10. We are here and it is AMAZING!! pictures do not even do this place justice. Just a few more days now!!! Can't wait!!!!
  11. I want to start like everyone else and thank all the amazing brides on here who have shared their ideas and inspirations. My wedding wouldn't be what it is without this forum. Here it goes… How we met We officially met at a party in high school. It was a brief meeting, but one we both remember. Flash forward two years and I got an MSN e-mail saying that Dave wanted to talk to talk to me on MSN. I thought, what the heck, and accepted. He was online as I accepted the invitation and we started talking. We were from the same small town and had common friends. We actually we both ta
  12. Looks amazing and looks like you had an amazing wedding. Congrats and thanks for sharing!
  13. So I have been searching online for months trying to track down an umbra ether frame for our sand ceremony. I finally gave up and bought some other shadow-box type frame that I was hoping FI could transform into something for the ceremony. We were at Winners yesterday to get some last minute things when we checked out the picture frame aisle and there it was. Umbra Ether in silver on clearance for $13. There was one left after we bought it (Hamilton Mountain Winners) and not sure if any other Winners stores will carry it but it is worth checking out if you are searching for this frame.
  14. November is just around the corner. Everyone getting excited? I have my final fitting on Thursday (last time the dress was a little snug so fingers crossed it's a perfect fit when I go on Thursday). My bachelorette is Saturday too, so very excited to see what the ladies have planned for that. It's down to the wire now. Getting my final DIY projects out of the way and dreaming about being on the beach!!! How are you ladies making out with your final plans?
