On the news today, it was said that the virus really hasn't caused as much death and harm as people in the U.S. think it has. I really think this whole thing will blow over. Guys don't change your dream weddings!

However, to everyone, please keep a cool and level head about this. This is a stressful time, and in my opinion, there is no need....no sense...in worring about the unknown. Lets deal with what we know and make no assumptions. Take things day by day, and know that your fellow brides are here to support you. Look at the numbers. I dont know how many of you watch cnn or any of the other news channels, but fromt what i gather, this swine flu is not as dangerous and deadly as the regular flu. All countries world wide are taking substantial steps toward getting this resolved. If anyone needs someone to talk to, turn to your fellow brides. We are all here for eachother....some more than others of course....but we can understand, sympathize, and offer any input if you need it.

 

With all that said, on a similar topic, everyone on this site has a lot of stress to a certain extent. At least those of us with upcoming weddings. Please, please, please....everyone watch your tone with your comrades. Some people say things they dont mean, others just use a poor choice of words. If that is the case and you notice it, be polite and professional about it. Making someone feel like crap because they used poor judgement in wording is counter productive. Rather, if you have something mean to say, say it in a private message or bite your tongue. Stress creates poor judgement, and stress can be cured by support. So lets all be friendly and kind with eachother, though, sometimes we may not want to :)

happy planning!!!

Just curious if anyone knows how a company can tell their employees that they are not allowed to travel to Mexico. I can understand the military ordering their soldiers to stay in the U.S., but Id tell my company to pound sand if they ordered me to stay in the States. Short of the US closing the border to Mexico, everyone has the freedom to go where they please. What happens if the employee breaks that rule? Is there any way for a company to find out whether their employee went to Mexico?? ...Just a thought.

Hi ladies,

 

I just wanted to post a quick note to say that we are home safe and sound after a wonderful two weeks in Mexico. We were at Dreams from April 12th until the 18th and our wedding was held on the 16th. I will be posting a more detailed review, but in the meantime just wanted to say that we are sooo pleased with how things turned out for the wedding, it was an incredible day!! I did a lot of worrying, but I had no reason to worry! Cecilia was amazing, the flowers were absolutely beautiful, my hair turned out wonderful, they got all of the music right, it was all better than I ever could have imagined! We hired Citlalli from Claudia Rodriguez's photography team, we are still waiting to get our pics back but she was incredible, so easy to deal with!

 

In terms of the swine flu, we got quite the scare when some family members told us about it, we were still in Mexico at the Excellence Riviera Cancun for our honeymoon when we first found out. Luckily, nobody in our group of 29 was affected, two of them did get sick and got checked out, but it was not the swine virus. I was not allowed to go back to work until seven days after we returned, tomorrow will be my first day back, I had just worked from home, definitely an odd feeling!

 

One word of advice for the trip in general, I ended up getting a heat rash on my arms, and I hadn`t even though about bringing anything with me for a rash, luckily my aunt brought some cortisone cream with her and that really helped. That is the first time I have ever broken into a bad rash like that, so if you have sensitive skin, you may want to consider taking something with you just in case. Two of my aunts also had a bit of a heat rash.

 

Also, on a final note, I would definitely recommend getting a massage on the morning of the wedding. I did and it made me feel so much more relaxed, definitely helped with the pre-wedding nerves!

 

If anyone has any questions, just let me know!

I have had 6 people cancel out on not attending, my brother wont be attending because of our argument and that means no ring bearer for him as his son was my ring bearer. One of my groomsmen is paranoid so he is refusing to go, Im soo upset.

I will just play it by ear, my MOH is so supportive, she is like Im going to be there regardless of what is going on to support you.

Im trying to stay positive and just hope that this all goes away by the time we leave on May 11
I know it seems scary but I think it will be OK, just be sure and pack plenty of hand sanitizer! I'm sorry people are backing out at the last minute. I'm sure you will still have a wonderful time and a beautiful wedding. Good luck and let us all know what happened when you get back home! smile03.gifsmile03.gif

Are any of you having a planned welcome/rehearsal dinner? I know some brides just show up with their guests to a restaurant and ask to accomodate everyone, but we have 45 people so I'm thinking that we wouldnt all fit.

we're not because we have guests arriving almost every day of the week, but since most are arriving the same day as us we are going to gather in one of the bars for our semi-official welcome drinks. for the rehearsal, we will attempt to go to dinner with ONLY the people who are IN the wedding. i don't see any reason to have (or pay for) a second private dinner for all the same people. it would be like wedding part deux, ya know? besides, it seems silly to me to keep paying for dinners when it's an all-inclusive! to each their own tho ... do what you feel is right!

Maybe I will set up a time where everyone meets for welcome drinks instead of dinner. Most of my family is coming on Saturday, which is the day before the wedding thats why I was thinking of having something.

    • 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. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
