  1. Hi! First off beautiful pictures! And I love the shoes and jewelry shots! They're so artistic! I am glad that I will also be using Sascha! I do have a couple of questions. How did you pay him? We are thinking of using paypal but we are a bit hesitant to log in at the resort's WIFI. Also how long did it take for him to send you the pictures after? Thanks so much!

    Dresses from Dressilyme

    Hi! I paid $230 for it plus $30 for shipping and $30 for duties. This is a replica of a dress from David's Bridal which was a replica from Vera Wang. So I sent the link to Dressilyme and they customized it to my size so I don't have to spend money on alterations too. (which I heard can be quite expensive).
  4. I just learned that my MOH is pregnant and will be around 29-30 weeks at the time of my wedding. There is a huge chance she cannot make it. What should I do in the meantime? I have about 5.5 months until the wedding. Should I ask a friend to be a backup in case she doesn't show? I am soooo happy for her but if she doesn't end up coming? I am confused...Any advice would be soo great! Thanks!
  5. Hi! Another question from me..The holiday was a good break but now I am back in full planning gear! I have booked an outside photographer and in order to avoid paying the $500 vendor fee, I am planning to book 2 nights for the photographer and his assistant. We are all staying at the Palace Deluxe but the rooms per night at that time is $266. The other resorts like the Beach and Tropical are cheaper at $140 per night. Would you recommend me to book another resort room for the photographer? Is that a hassle? Please help. Thanks!
  6. Hi! For those that used iphones/ipods for music, did you have to rent the audio speakers and microphones? If so, how much extra? Thanks!

    Vistaprint groupon

    My Groupon vistaprint experience has been HORRIBLE! So I bought 2 groupons. I used the first one back in September with no issues. Since they expire in Nov 30, 2012, I decided to use the second groupon in early November. I spent hours making different products on vistaprint and when it comes time to order my cart, the groupon redemption code doesn't work. I tried it 3 times before I decided to call Vistaprint. After 30 mins with them, they finally told me that the groupon redemption code has been used by another user with a different email address. They told me to call Groupon to rectify the mix-up. I called Groupon and explained the situation. They said my case will be looked at by management and I should hear back in 3 - 5 business days. 5 business days later, no response. So I called Groupon again, explained the situation again, and again they said they will tag my case as urgent and management should get back to me soon. 3 business days later and this time with a shorter fuse, I called Groupon again. They said the manager was/is sick and that is why they haven't gotten back to me and also they said it will be hard to re-issue another redemption code after that particular Groupon has expired. Why didn't they say that in the first place??!! I ended up taking a refund because I was so frustrated that I do not want to deal with them again.
  8. I should say that the first picture above are my "will you be my maid of honor" and "will you be my bridesmaid" cards. So what I spent is: - Cardstock from Michaels - clearance $10 - diamond and pearl stickers from Dollarama - $2 - organza ribbons 6 rolls from Dollarama - $6 - printing done at work - free Total: $18 so it comes out to approx $0.51 each invitation!
  9. I thought I would share because I am done with my invitations! YAY! I am not a creative person so I didn't do the boarding passes or bottle messages. I did go to Michaels and found these really nice blue (my theme color) blank invitation and rsvp cards. It was on clearance for $10! Being the frugal bride, I bought them. I then bought these really pretty mixture of diamond and pearl stickers, and white organza ribbons from Dollarama for $1 each! So iI stuck the diamond and pearl stickers on each invitation and tied a nice big bow on each invite. It turned out really pretty I must say. I can't wait to give them out soon. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/172875/width/350/height/700[/img] http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/172876/width/350/height/700[/img] http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/172877/width/350/height/700[/img] http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/172878/width/350/height/700[/img]

    Post your centerpieces here

    Wow great inspirational pictures! I love them all! I don't have a picture but I will describe it. My centre piece will consists of seashells and other "sea" stuff in a clear glass round vases filled with water with a floating candle on top. I bought these fake seashells and bits from Michaels Store, round vases from Dollarama and floating candles from Ikea. The only challenge I see if bringing 5 glass vases down to mexico in a suitcase. :/

    Vistaprint groupon

    Yep! I am from Canada and I bought a groupon from somewhere in the states. The only "issue" I had was I had to use the Vistaprint.com website (instead of it's Canadian site at Vistaprint.ca). So I had to pay about $25 for shipping to Canada. But it was worth it at $17 for $70 worth of stuff.

    Dresses from Dressilyme

    OK the FI is not at home so I was able to actually try it on properly and look in the mirror. It's hard to try it on without another set of hands though but I managed to zip up and everything! Here are 2 pictures. It fits perfectly and with my shoes too! Should I get a beaded sash for the waist? Does it look kind of plain? As for jewelry I was thinking of going for a simple pearl necklace and pearl earrings, just because the dress is already "pretty fun" with the frills. My wedding is 9 months away and I can't wait for my FI to see it.

    Dresses from Dressilyme

    I only took one picture. The top was getting a bit squished from the hanger. But you can slightly see from the picture that there is a train. The top is a sweetheart with an empire waist and frills made from tulle cascading to the bottom. I am not sure if this will be my TTD dress yet.
