I have more points than some people who have 150+ posts- does that mean i participate less? I <3 this forum, but there are only so many hours in a day I can spend on it!

Sorry, just had to vent a little... my Best Man still does not have his room reservation done so I've been a bit on edge. : /

if you don't like the rules you are free to leave. This forum is free to you and you don't have to use our resources. This forum has more resources than you could imagine, 150 posts is not easy to attain.

Also if any of the mods see anyone posting they will e-mail noobs their templates you will be banned, this is a violation of our rules.

Hey all! We leave today!!! Well, for our hotel - we fly out in the morning! I've been such a wreck - I've had to take sleep aids for the past like 3 nights - my mind won't turn off!!

 

We ended up needing to bring 5 bags, so I'm definitely freaking out still about customs - I hope I'm freaking out about nothing!!!

 

Thanks for the tips about the ebay seller. I am really still pretty salty about it.

 

TINA - I can't wait to see your pictures. I bet you looked so beautiful. Congrats girl!!! You deserved your beautiful day - and rain is good luck!!!

Hi everyone!

 

It was quite a busy week/weekend so I feel like I haven't been on forever.

 

Tina - CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your wedding day! I can tell from reading your posts that you put a lot of effort into your planning and it is always nice to hear when things run smoothly!

 

Nibsmom and Honey - Best wishes for a wonderful wedding! I'm sure it will be amazing and I can't wait to read your reviews.

 

Nibsmom - I'm sorry to hear about the eBay incident. My FI lives off of eBay and it's no fun when things don't work out. I'm sure whatever you decide will be perfect! I have had weird wedding nightmares here and there, but I'm finding that it's getting more and more difficult to fall asleep. I feel like I have "to-do" lists floating around in my head!

 

I had my shower yesterday and it's officially setting in that time is running out FAST!!! I am currently in the middle of a flight issue which is no fun. We received an e-mail on Thursday (yup.... less than 3 weeks before our departure) that our 7:40 flight has been canceled. We were rescheduled for the flight 2 hours later, but I'm stressing because we were already cutting the "3 day rule" close. I e-mailed the resort and they have reassured me that it won't be a problem. My FI thinks it's a good excuse to leave a day early, but I'm not so sure about that. Guess we'll have to see....

 

I found the wording I'm using for the sand ceremony (whoohoo!) Now I just have my final fitting (Thursday), music, and jewelry which I'm being super indecisive about!

honey740- After i booked MP i refuuused to check trip advisor!

I much rather hear from the brides on this forum, this is a great resource and am so grateful to have found you guys!smile29.gif
I am also August 1st! We are scheduled for 5:00 at the Bugamibilias gazebo. AND I totally went to Magestic last summer for vaca! Small world! I second the ignoring tripadvisor thing. I check, but I try not to take the reviews so seriously. People were writing negative reviews about Magestic and I was totally fine with the hotel!

Because we are all planning weddings, we have been in constant communication with the resort. I definitely think this is a plus! I do have a guest who booked through a family member (which is totally fine with me), but I'm a little nervous because I have confirmations for everyone else.

One more question-- We were told that transfers to/from MP were included for us. I booked online and I have told others in my party to do the same. Has anyone had any experience with the transfer company? I didn't receive any type of confirmation about this?

If the transfer company you are using is trafic tours - they are really nice. We just got here yesterday and they did a nice job - very friendly.

 

It's absolutely gorgeous here. We saw a bride and groom yesterday getting their pictures done on the beach from our balcony - we've also scoped out all the gazebos - they are all gorgeous! We are sooooo excited for Saturday!!

Nibsmom - Whoohoo! Glad to hear the traveling went well and that you arrived safely! I am using the Traffic Tours company for our transfers so thank you for the reassurance! :) Best wishes for an amazing wedding day!

 

MrsGin09 - I'm sure the ballroom will be nice! You will enjoy the AC! We are having our cocktail hour on the Bugambilias terrace and then dinner at the Arrecifies restaurant. We aren't having a private reception since it's only 17 of us and we are having a formal AHR on August 28th.

    • 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!
