Depending on your package, the hotel offers preparation of suits and dresses for you.

If your package doesn't include this, you can certainly request it! I'm not sure of the fee though...

I'm asking my Air Canada rep if we can hang our suit and dress in the First Class Closet...but honestly...as long as its with me on the plane...I'll just make sure I take advantage of the steaming included in our package at the hotel!

Welcome girls its nice to see some new faces.

 

For those of you who are getting married in the next few months have you gotten a head count yet? Also what package are you guys getting? I feel like the packages don't save you much and I think we are getting one of the basic packages but what are you guys doing?

 

Also I never hear back about the TTD session if you guys are doing it and if so where you plan to do the shoot?

 

As for carrying my dress I am not too worried about it either because I am planning on having it steamed down there anyway...I don't plan on packing the dress because of the obvious chance of it getting lost but I feel like it will be fine wherever it ends up on the plane.

 

I wish I had Shay's cheat sheet in front of me everytime I write on here because I want to see everyones dates in front of me. Veronica its getting close!!!

 

I am picking up my invites today, I want to see everyone's. I am so excited to see them in person. I ended up going with Prim and Pixie. Not sure how to attach them but they are really cute!

We have selected the Luxury Package and I think...we're using EVERYTHING the package offers. Overall...I feel it is saving us a bundle...when we itemized everything...it was WAY more expensive for all the little add-ons (ie. flowers, cocktail hour, decorated reception area, dance floor, etc).

Wow Shay I love the invites, they are soo cute! They turned out perfect! I thought about doing mine myself but just decided it was going to be too much work to save about $120. I'm impressed that you did them yourself! I am trying to upload mine but the picture of the invite isn't uploading properly not sure why but I think I managed to upload the rsvp card and welcome insert.

I like what I see so far...

I don't think you can upload just jpgs, so...that might be the problem?

If you ever needed, you could email me them, and I could photobucket those bad boys for ya!

My FI and I enjoyed doing the invitations SO much, we actually would like to do other people's...maybe even start a small business.

Shay thanks for the info. We are just doing the reception at the Royal and no wedding package so I guess we have to pay. That's cool as long as the service is available. But totally agree with you about bringing it on board. I am telling my groomsmen and all the bridesmaids to do the same just in case.

 

Also those are awesome invites! I commend you on the great work. I really wanted to do my own but I am way too busy to do it. It's so much better to do it on your own because you do it exactly the way you want and probably save a lot too.

Very Cute Shay, I on the other hand have had a complete bridal meltdown over my STD cards. I had found some online that I loved loved loved but they were not the right colors. So my cousin's hubby (they are helping us plan and are part of the wedding party) said he could photoshop them no problem to change the colors. I said great! 3 weeks later and a zillion changes and he is probably sick of me. I just wanted them to be perfect and it seemed like he just wouldn't listen to what I wanted. And you can't pester someone that is helping you to hurry up. But I wanted to mail them a couple weeks ago. So now I have a copy that I absolutely love but I'm afraid the font is too small and I have a copy of the one with the font he enlarged but he went overboard and I think its too big. I don't dare ask him to change it again! So now I am stuck. And I am sad.

 

Nothing seems to be going right and although Zulma confirmed that she recieved my payment like a week and a half ago, they have not taken the money from my account yet, which worries me.

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
