thanks in advance :):)
DJ Mannia brings the light up dance floor. I have to say that he was worth every penny! The DJ kept everyone on the dance floor all night and the MC was terrific. It's nice to hav eall your special moments introduced instead of trying to take care of it yourself. I would highly recommend them especially if you are having your wedding on the beach. I can't imagaine that an iPod would be anywhere loud enough with the wind and waves. They also bring extra lighting which is great for the beach. Go with Mannia:)

He did my friends wedding here in the states, and he does amazing work, and this is the only thing I want absolute control on. I would be paying to fly him in, and I would pay for his room for the night, and he would be one of my 20 guests. I was going to have him shoot my bridal pics in my hotel room (while I touch up my hair and makeup and get into my gown), and then have him come down with me. Couldn't I just say that he's my cousin or something? I would ask my WC, but I contacted them a while ago (the form says they will get back within 2 buisness days... HA!) and still no reply... grrrr, so techinically I don't have a WC.
I am not sure if policies have changed but I got amrried this past November and I hired an outside photographer to shoot my wedding. No one gave me a hard time about it.

We now have to keep it VERY basic because we had some things already planned and a lot of people already got their passports and i lost my job. I also sent them an email asking if we brought some tulle and some fake flowers we could decorate a little ourselves but I didnt know if that was a no no. Thanks for taking the time to respond to my message! :)
I emailed you the price lists that I have and saw your other posts...you can definately take any decorations you want. We are taking the gazebo stuff and silk flower petals for the walkway and the center pieces; anything to save money :)

So speaking of gazebo decorations...

I e-mailed Cecilia to see if I could hang things from the gazebo. I think the answer I got was yes, even though she didn't say how I could do it. My question to you all is, do you think the hanging beads in the background of the picture (from the movie I love you Man) would work in the gazebo? Cecilia thought it would look good but I'm not sure how the wind would work with them.

You can't see them great in the pic but in the movie they looked really pretty :)

I just got married at Dreams last month and everything went very smoothly even though I didn't make any final decisions until a few days before the actual wedding. We made up our own playlist the night before we left for Cancun and we ended up having plenty of songs left over. Just be sure to have the important ones on a separate playlist (processional, march, recessional, first dance, etc) so it's easy for the technician to locate. For the reception, he just let the playlist go but you can request to change the order of the playlist. He was very good. The only difference I can see in having just the sound system vs a DJ is that you would need to find someone to MC the evening. You can also get a light up dance floor without a DJ, but it does cost extra. Though I didn't end up having my reception on the beach (due to weather), the sound system was definitely loud enough. Good luck! Let me know if you need anything else.

yeah the beads looked really pretty, but you'd have to find a way to secure them to the ground as well b/c they will fly around everywhere...the wind up there is no joke!

Thank you so much! i greatly appreciate it! So they will put up the decorations you bring? I thought I would have to do it myself!!! That would be great because we were trying to figure out how we would fit that into our morning schedule lol. Any additional info that anyone feels beneficial to me please let me know! i am kindof clueless. Thanks, Melissa

    • 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!
