    Riu Caribe, Cancun
  1. http://www.vo-evolution.com/ I've booked with Vo Evolution for my wedding and they are very decently priced. Just an idea
  2. Thank you so much!! Merry Christmas to you as well!
  3. Hey, thank you for checking in! I appreciate it!! I've been in touch with a couple girls at the resort and we have mostly everything planned. I have gone ahead and booked a private dinner - they said they will confirm the restaurant in the new year. We've got mostly everything sorted out, but there's only so much you can do when your wedding is in April. Getting pretty anxious!! Only a few months to go!

    Wedding Packages And Additional Costs

    Congrats on your engagement!! You are right, there are lots of additional costs, which is annoying and they add up fast. Most of the wedding packages are for the wedding ceremony only. We've had to budget for hair and makeup, photographer, DJ, private dinner and reception. Any extra decorations will be extra, but I'm not very creative, and I think Mexico is a place that won't require a ton of decorations. The back drop (ocean, sand, etc) is enough for me

    Recessional Song?

    We're using "Marry You" by Bruno Mars - I love how upbeat it is!
  7. Thanks Kim! I'll have a look
  8. Go figure,the shoes I wanted don't have my size. Arghhh, the search begins again, haha.
  9. Thanks everyone! Think I'll go ahead and order them then! I'm also 5'3 and my fiancee is 6'4 so I would like a bit of height (my dress is longer too, so any little bit of height will help) If I fall while walking down the aisle, I will let all of you know, haha!
  10. I'm having a HECK of a time trying to find wedding shoes. I'm getting married on the beach and obviously don't want to wear heels. The flats I've found ended up being out of stock and they are not re-ordering them. It's a little more difficult for me, because I live in northern Canada with virtually no shopping, so I must do everything online. I've come across these super cute wedges on David's Bridal, but am hesitant, as I've never walked in sand in wedges...I'm thinking it might not be good news? And to go with flats? Input from brides please!!! http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_rhinestone-embellished-low-wedge-sandal-afield2_shoes-all-shoes
  11. Vo Evolution! They are very affordable; I've booked them for my wedding www.vo-evolution.com
  12. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you! I was on holidays - they charge in USD - it was $250-ish, but ended up being $320 once they converted it to Canadian $ unfortunately.
  13. WOW - it'd be a huge coincidence if she knew another couple that was going to Japan the same time as you, for the same length of time, etc. BUT on the other hand, why the heck would she put that on Facebook where anybody could see it?! Even if you didn't have Facebook, somebody could tell you. I hope she didn't ruin the surprise - but either way, it still will be a surprise if it does happen, it will be a special moment between you two and one you'll never forget!! I'd say try to keep your mind off it, but I know that's impossible lol

    Mean "friend"

    You're right....sigh.....as much as I hate confrontation, you're right that I should speak to her about what's bothering me. I guess I don't have much to lose? Either she'll apologize and change her behaviour or she won't and we just won't be friends anymore. I'm just afraid of what I'll get back. I'm 3 years younger than her (and she's good friends with my older sister), so she's always talked down to me like I'm young and stupid and she knows better. That's also part of the problem - she's 28, I'm almost 25, she thinks she should be doing all of this stuff first, not me... I'm still going to take the coward's way of confronting and send an email, haha. I get my thoughts out better through writing. In person, I'll forget a whole bunch of points I had to make and probably end up crying. Not sure when is a good time though... She's been in an abusive relationship before, but I guess every situation is different and hindsight is 20/20.

    Mean "friend"

    Thank you KIM!! haha You're so right, that's all I'm doing is torturing myself by trying to figure it out and letting it bother me. I can't wait until it's just a distant memory and a dissapointment that's in the past. I'll let you know how the birthday party goes!
