  1. I've got the major decisions done like our photographer, videographer, cake, bouquet, etc...but yes, a lot of stuff is left til when we get there which is kind of stressful. I think I'm going to do welcome bags but haven't done too much for them yet. I think after Christmas it's going to just fly by and we'll be down there before we know it!
  2. Hi Katiem2012, I just wanted to hello because we're both from Ottawa, getting married in April at the Grand Palladium Punta Cana. My date is the 18th, happy planning!
  3. Hi ladies, This is for the brides/bridesmaids who got their hair and/or makeup done. I'm definitely getting my hair done but I think I can do my own makeup. I'm wondering what recent brides thought of their hair/makeup. The spa prices have gone up quite a bit and I was wondering if it would be worth it to say, have my grandmothers hair or makeup done as a gift, etc.. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
  4. I'm in Ottawa and CT has bubba mugs on for 50% off I think that people have been talking about. Also, Michaels has a good flyer going with a lot at 50% off plus a coupon for 50% off any reg. priced item, you can also get the coupons online:)
  5. My FI is wearing a grey (the actual colour is called taupe but looks grey) linen blend suit from Le Chateau. It looks so nice with my magenta bridesmaid dresses. He's also wearing a purple/magenta paisley tie and white shirt. It looks soooo nice! When we bought it, it was on sale plus we got extra $50 off for spending at least $100. http://www.lechateau.com/style/browse/shopByLooksDetail.jsp?productId=prod230413&categoryId=cat150048 Here's the bridesmaid dresses, also from Le Chateau. I think grey is a very nice alternative to the usual tan suit.
  6. Thanks for your input cell44...I think we're going to go with DJ Mannia since we've found savings elsewhere such as changing our wedding to a symbolic one.
  7. Hi beachbum21, I just wanted to share that we're getting married on the same day:) I'm going to Punta Cana though.
  8. I love these bags, I saw them at my Dollarama and they're quite nice. It's frustrating because I don't know how many people are comming yet so I can't start my OOT bags! I wonder if they'll have something similar next year before April...might be too early.
  9. Hi ladies, I was wondering for those of you who had the beach party, did you use the resort DJ or has anyone used DJ Mannia? Two photographers that I have spoken to (Phil Steingard and Jamie Dimity - our photographer) have recommended this company. The more I think about it, the more I'm inclined to use DJ Mannia but they quoted me $850 if I book by the end of August, a bit pricey but it might be worth it. Any info would be helpful if you've used either one. Thanks!
  10. We are so excited to have booked Pastor Rick York. We were all set on having a civil wedding until two photographers (Phil Steingard and Jamie Dimity - our photographer) both recommended him rather than doing a civil ceremony. We're getting married on April 18, 2012 and were quoted $350, you pay him the day of. He sent us a template of his ceremony and it brought me to tears...I'm seriously going to have to read it a million times so that I'm desensitized to it. You can add or change things to make it personal....but it already sounds personal...way better than having a Spanish ceremony translated to English. You also have more options to a time you want rather than being giving one by the resort. Hope this helps. ryork@codetel.net.do
  11. We have booked Pastor York, the template he gave us brought me to tears. I was all set to have a civil ceremony until my photographer mentioned him...but I've also only heard amazing reviews on him here. So that changed my mind 100% so now we're having a symbolic wedding just to have Pastor York. There's no comparison to the service you'll get, it's so much more personal and like cdc150 said, you can make changes and add or take away things. I'm so excited to have him perform our ceremony!
