  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. 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!
  3. 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
  4. Congratulations!! That's so exciting!! It's a nice weight to be lifted, to have a final date
  5. Go figure,the shoes I wanted don't have my size. Arghhh, the search begins again, haha.
  6. 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!
  7. 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_rhi
  8. Vo Evolution! They are very affordable; I've booked them for my wedding www.vo-evolution.com
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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 goi
  12. 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!
  13. Thank you ladies!! I truly appreciate the support and hearing your own experiences! It really helps. Sometimes I feel isolated and alone in this situation, so although I would never wish this upon anybody, it is nice to know others can relate to my situation and the betrayal, hurt, etc that I'm experiencing. I had no idea that weddings brought out such ugliness in people until I got engaged. This truly proves it (along with other stories I have read from ladies on this forum) Why can't they just be happy for us? You both are right - this is supposed to be some of the happiest moments of our
  14. This is just to vent...and to perhaps get some advice on girls who can relate. It's long so I don't expect anyone to read it but it's just a good venting opportunity for me..haha. My (former..) best friend and I have been close for the last 5 years. We've been through a lot together, and have always supported each other through our ups and downs. I met my fiancé 4 summers ago; she met her current boyfriend 3 years ago (but they've been on and off for the whole time. He's not the nicest person to her and is afraid of commitment, they still haven't said I love you, he's extremely controlling
  15. I was wondering the same thing. I always order from the states and have never had to pay custom fees...who knows!
  16. Somehow I figured out how to post pictures at one point, and then couldn't the second time - thanks for your help! lol. I did not know what the custom fees would be, I only found out when picking the package up. However, that being said, given where I live (Yellowknife), the fees you'll have to pay will likely be cheaper since I doubt you're as far north as I am!
  17. Yup they are the same color. They might look a bit off because I took the picture right next to a window where the sun was shining. But they are the same shade
  18. Damn, that sucks! I'm sorry to hear!! But in the end, it looks like you found a dress you love more, so that's a positive!! I would definitely try to sell the dress second hand. Even if you don't get back what you paid, any little bit helps, right? And if you love your new dress, I think it's worth it if you can afford it. Maybe just cut back on some areas that aren't super important (ie: decorations for example?)
  19. Genius!! haha! thank you I picked coral for him to wear so he could match the bridal party (colors are coral and mint). The sizing for the pants definitely runs big if you decide to order from them. But it's an easy fix
  20. I think pastel colors are great for a beach wedding! I agree with the Pinterest suggestion. You'll spend many hours there....haha.
  21. Ok well that clearly didn't work, haha! I don't know how to attach pictures??! I'll figure it out haha
  22. Congrats on your upcoming wedding!! She doesn't think the engagement ring is present enough? haha just kidding! That's something my fiance would say as a joke. Check out etsy.com. You can get personalized picture frames, like mentioned above, or personalized signs. Here's an idea of what I'm referring to - https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/161963976/personalized-wedding-sign-important-date?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized%20wedding%20sign&ref=sr_gallery_4
  23. Thanks guys! I'll post a pic when I receive them! I'm all about sparkles, haha.
