        You ladies are such wonderfully organized planners! Most of you have wedding dates later than mine and are soooo much further ahead in the planning process than I. I just bought my dress on the weekend, off the rack (and thank goodness for that... Most places were saying it would take 4-6 months to get the dress in, let alone alterations, and since my wedding is 6 months away as of today, it was getting to be crunch time!). We haven't really decided on the guys' outfits yet. Seems like everyone is pretty well going with linen for the men, eh? Any ideas where I can find some good deals on the guys' outfits in Canada?

          Man, I just noticed that I actually wrote "eh" in my last post. Noting that many of you are not from Canada, I'm sure that's just asking for trouble! LOL

            I had to read your thread twice to notice it...I guess being a fellow canuck it just comes so naturally that we're not even aware of it anymore! lol no worries! I think most Americans just find it amusing like we find many of their contractures to be

                also, if you want to have the wording posted on here, you can email it to me (ebredhawk@yahoo.com) and i'll post it for you!

                i just got some of my questions answered from deyanira and wanted to share some answers that you guys may be interested in:

                -silk flower petals are okay, even for a beach ceremony
                -the huppah they offer is wood, not bamboo
                -you can get the huppah without flowers (just the white fabric) for $150 as opposed to the $350 with the flowers
                -a microphone is included in the speaker rental and you only need to rent the speakers for your reception. they are included for the ceremony.
                Erin, did I send you the wording? I can't remember as I was away up north all weekend...let me know and I will send it to you

                  our colors are pink, white and black.. although my dress is ivory. it's all based off the stargazer lily. i know we're going non-traditional, but the GM will be wearing black linen shirts and tan linen shorts and FI will have a white linen shirt and the same shorts as the guys. the BM have black dresses and then the flowers are mostly white and pink so it ties all of the colors together. i say, it's a DW.. anything goes! whatever colors you think look good together will be beautiful i'm sure!
                  Erin black, white & pink are our colours too!! Guys will be wearing black pants, white short sleeve shirts. BMs will have black cocktail dresses, flower girls white/pink dresses (haven't decided that one). My dress is ivory too, and I'm going to have a hot pink bouquet... haven't fully decided on what the BM flowers will look like... bought some, but not sure what Im going to do yet.
                  I find it difficult to co-ordinate right now! Maybe just b/c I'm tired.

                    hey Tara!

                    My FI bought his linen suit at Le Chateau at the end of August, since their summer stuff is all on sale... normally I think their suit coordinates are like... $180 for the jacket and $90 for the pants, but they were both like half price!! If you don't want to buy from the internet, that would be a good place to start.... not sure if they would STILL have that, but another thing to check (if you have it where you live) is a Le Chateau Outlet, since they almost always have that stuff! Good luck :)

                      thanks for asking tam! you didn't, but i'm having pastor york do my wedding so i don't need the wording. thanks for the offer though!

                      for you married girls (ssnm and lp) can you tell us how the day of the wedding was coordinated? did the WC get your guests to the site and get everyone in place or how did that work? i want to make sure everything goes smoothly on the day of and i haven't ever heard a complaint about this from the resort so it seems like they do it well. i was just curious exactly how it was all orchestrated!
