We're wondering if the 110W system we are renting will be enough for GOOD sound - music is big for us and our wedding guests are all big dancers so I want to make sure the system is good....i know plaza zavaz is outside and open air, so i just wanted to see what those of you who used the system thought of it.

 

we are looking at the two speaker system that lomas offers for rent on their site.

For the ladies that know this forum better than me, is there a thread where people share their TTD dresses and say where they got them from? It's been such a hard task trying to find something nice, but cheap for the photo shoot...

I asked my WC about using a DJ other than the one Lomas provided and she said it would be a $500 outside vendor fee for the DJ  :(  Which actually is STILL cheaper if we use another DJ!

(20% off, bride and groom free, etc)  I would just make sure it is a GIVC (they get perks from karisma).  that way you don't have to front any money either.  i say we do a whole lot to make sure things are easy for our guests.  they can at least be accountable for booking their own trip by calling/e-mailing the TA i suggested.  plus, i haven't had to deal with anything in regard to others travel.  they just deal with her.....that's her job and her specialty!!

 

and, for a wedding in may (which is very close to sold out) our prices are about 1000 per person for 3 nights, 1200 for 4, and about 2000 for 7 nights.  this includes flight and everything. 
 


 


it is $500 for each vendor. :(
 

 


 


Just been looking on the Lomas website re vendor fees and it only mentions it next to Photographers no mention regarding DJ's. I'm going to question this with my WC, because if they want to charge you they need to state it on their website and its not.

What an eventful fitting you had!! 

 

I'm so glad to hear the changes will make the dress perfect.  Its already a gorgeous dress...so I'm so excited to see how it turns out!

 

My first fitting is this coming Friday.  It should be easy alterations, but I'm still super nervous about how much it will cost.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
