Hey Murmel,

 

Thanks so much, your the best! 

I know right? Its so hard to pass on the info. without sounding pushy...thats how I feel when I am talking to them anyway, but they just don't get it!

If any of them stick to their guns, I'll def. have them email you!!!  ;)

 

As for the marrying in T.O., how much does it cost with papers etc. to do it at city hall vs. having them come to you?  $300 sounds like a deal to me!

The more I think about it, if I can keep my big mouth shut, no one will know the difference, and we will do it here, and it seems like everything else will be a bit easier in regards to the papers/ceremony stuff.....and Chris hates needles, he would probably want to do it this way too.

(I guess I should check with him eh?)  lol

If you want, tell your friends to contact me, I 'll confirm for them that they should not wait. We had to to actually confirm with the hotel when we got there that none of our guests would be sent to other hotels because they were over booked!

 

If you want to do a legal ceremony in the Toronto area, there are actually judges that will come out to your house and do it for you. (i think it was about $300, included the paperwork). I am sure I can dig up the name if you want it. That way no one has to know. And other than my MOH, my sister, the best man and husband's parents NO ONE knows we got legally married at home. The ceremony sounded so good in Mexico, that no one was the wiser. The lady/minister that did our ceremony was lovely. And yes, she had an accent, but it was no problem to understand her. The only tip off is that you don't do the fingerprinting (which you  have to do for the legal ceremony), and just the couple and minister sign the documents, no witnesses.

 

 



It seemed to me, that they offer this bonfire party, but rarely ever do it. So when they actually have to do it, it's sort of thrown together.

I will dig out my papers and see if I can find her name. We did not see a script at all... My husband met her about an hour before the ceremony to find out what was happening. I didn't want my husband to see me til I walked down the aisle, so a girlfriend of mine went to the meeting and passed on the info to me. Basically the minister did a little intro, then went straight into 'repeat after me', then we inserted our own vows, ring exchange, signing the certificate, announcing we were husband and wife!

Not a restaurant. It's the main lobby. You can do pictures there, but no receptions.

This was the service we had planned on using.  http://www.kcwgta.com/elopement.htm There is another judge as well, I will dig through my paper work and see if I still have the contact info. I wish I could tell you the true cost in Toronto, but we ended up in Newfoundland to do our legal ceremony (that's where the nursing home my Mom resides in). It cost us $50 for paperwork, $250 for the judge, and then $40 for the province to send me the actual legal certificate after. My guess it should be about the same here. And trust me, unless you tell someone, no one will know! And a bonus about having to not deal with the needles! (I hate them too!)

I will def. look into city hall vs. this way.  Sounds like it might be the route we end up taking.  Were you nervous not really knowing what was going to be read exactly at the ceremony?  they don't tell you what the script is before hand? 

:)

Hey girls, Im still in Mexico but wanted to drop in and say hi!  Our wedding was beautiful.  A full review will be written some time on Friday.  We do have a website up but it doesnt have the best pics up yet.  Maybe on Sunday more people will have posted, and I will share the link.  I will say the beach ceremony was very windy though which made it difficult for good pics and what not, but overall the day was great, and the vacation is one to be cherished forever!  Happy wedding day to Marcella, and then to Jaime tomorrow!  I got the chance to meet Jaime.  She has been such a great help during this planning!!  What a sweetheart!!  TTYS girls!

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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?
