    Post-Wedding Sale

    updated prices!! Chair sashes $30 + shipping Vases + lights $25 + shipping Flowers $20+shipping moving in 4 weeks, want this stuff gone!!
  3. We had a PERFECT wedding! We brought a lot of our own stuff (anyone else notice how they charge you an arm and a leg just to rent stuff!) and now we need to get rid of it all. See pics for details. All items would be shipped from Kitchener On, Canada. Please msg me for rates (I've looked into a few and they can be fairly cheap if you select the 5 day shipping. 1. 50 Chair sashes. These turned out beautiful - see pics from actual wedding. good quality - sewn edges so no fraying. 25 yellow 25 royal blue. They are very wrinkly (WC just threw them in a bag post wedding) but I checked them all - still in great condition just need to be steamed to get wrinkles out (maybe iron or dryer would even work? not sure!) $40 for all 50 (+ shipping). 2.8 plastic vases - great for travelling - if you're doing your own centre pieces you don't have to worry about being over weight or them breaking in your luggage!!! I used them as my centrepices & table numbers!!! 5 have numbers added (2 sides of vase) using silhouette vinyl - can easily be removed and 1 has Mr & Mrs (one side) as it was used at our sweetheart table. tables 1-5 + 1 sweetheart table (see pic - Mr & Mrs) + 2 blank vases See images $30 for all 8 (+ shipping). $5 for the clear LED underwater lights (8). 3. Foam flowers these flowers are great for crafts. I wanted to make pomander balls - sort of ran out of time. 1 was made (see image) and then I have 38 more yellow flowers and 40 orange/peach flowers (image makes them look pink, they're not). $30 for 1 pomander ball + 78 + foam flowers (+shipping) please message with any questions

  5. hey ladies, only 43 days till I tie the knot at the iberostar bavaro! They've been great so far, if you have any questions let me know! The biggest complaint I have is the extra $$ charges - they charge if you want an open bar at your reception - which to me is silly since it's an all inclusive so if people walk around the corner to the regular bar it'd be free, but we thought it was important for our guests to have drinks with dinner so we will pay the fee (which isn't cheap - $15 per person USD for 3 hours for limited drinks - wine or beer - if you want more options its even more pricey). I will post an extensive review when we get back, but for now let me know if you have any questions - I've probably asked them already Happy planning!
  6. I'm an iberostar bavaro bride!!! June 3rd 2014 can't help you with any real reviews yet, but the coordinators are really nice, and really organized from the emails we've exchanged. They're also patient with my tons and tons of questions!!
  7. June 3rd 2014- Iberostar Bavaro.. can't come soon enough!!!
  8. since they're all paying for their own trips we are covering the costs for the bridesmaids(6)and groomsmen's (5) outfits. Girls dresses were about $150-$190 (we let them choose the style as long as colour and fabric were the same) and guys outfits are <$100 so it's not too big of a deal considering they're paying $1200+ to come to the wedding, it's the least we can do. Everyone was very grateful for it, and it was a surprise to most, so I assume they also would have been okay paying themselves

This is great because 1. you can thank people for their awesomeness 2. you get closer to your 150 and 3. youre now subscribed so it's an easy way of making a 'bookmarked list' in a sense! In many cases I shared my opinions on random topics, which honestly I doubt most people care about, but hey, I think we're all understanding that sometimes comments are just comments to get closer to 150
  11. thanks for sharing! super interesting about the coach buses... I will have to look into that, we're flying from Toronto and a lot of the guests are from the Kitchener/Waterloo area

From what I've seen and read so far, most of them are very accommodating. we don't have any contact with the DJ in advance, just the wedding coordinator. No big deal though, I bring my iPod with me everywhere
