We also travelled with Air Canada, First Class. I decided last minute to put my dress in a carry on bag. It was very hard to get it to fit, but it was well worth it because it very easy to pull my carry on behind me instead of fighting with my dress on a hanger. Byron's suit went in his suitcase.
As for the dress/suit steaming: The Royal does offer this service, but we were not happy with it. Byron's suit came back untouched, and my dress was missing the dust cover and it came back with a bent up metal hanger (my dress was heavy so it just fell off this hanger). I complained but I never got my cover or hanger back. We were only charged half of the steam bill; my dress was done perfect though.
As well the morning of the wedding i received 2 phone calls asking if the pants to the suit was ours, and if we got the right suit at all!! I can't imagine being the other bride with a mixed up suit!!!
On another note,
We finally got our pics about 2 weeks ago, (we used the resort photographer, videographer). The photos and DVD are amazing. We are not happy with the provided wedding albums; I think we are going to order different ones through Sproullie Designs. I will try to have our photos uploaded today.
I think someone asked about the DJ - I loved the resort DJ (and of course the dance floor). Although it seems very expensive, the DJ acted as an MC, and it was really nice to have any song our guests wanted. I would have to recommend them.
And I think someone mentioned orchids- I sent 2 different pics to Micaela, wanting both but in one bouquet. And the flowers were exactly what I wanted. They were beautiful, huge and in perfect condition. I also had some bouquet gems that I wanted added and it turned out awesome. For my bouquet, 3 bridesmaids bouquets, 4 boutonieers (sp?), and 2 corsages it came to $975 US.
