I am thinking we are going to have around 40, and we got the DJ....I just wanted to leave it in someone elses hands and not have to worry about it.  We (well, quite a few brides on here too) booked DJ Doremixx...their website showing everyone partying it up with balloons/masks and their cheaper then most prices sold me.

Packed our packs and headed to the airport. So I just spent the last week in Germany trying to arrange everything.

 

Hope all is going well, and I promise I will get that info out shortly.

I'm doing a hot pink ribbon to match the card stock. I have 30 fans.  I hadn't really thought about bringing them back home with me, but I suppose I could if the quantity works out for you.  Let me know.

Would you be interesting in selling just the fans with the ribbon to me after your wedding? Our color is pink as well :)

Sounds like a great price to me.  I think I spent about $20 for the iron on transfers.  I'm only doing 10 bags, so it would have been worth it to have them screen printed for that price!

Maggie - great suggestion! It got me thinking...how big are the room key cards at the hotel? Maybe I could get them card cases and they could stick their room key in there? 

About credit card sized. Usually I just put mine into my beach bag, or gave it to hubby who put it in his shorts pocket.

I carried my dress and husbands suit and our shoes on board! Did not want to lose them!! We put our shoes into our carry ons and then the dress and suit, we put into dress bags. I had to put my dress in the overhead bin, folded over double. But once we got to Mexico, just hung it up and didn't have to do a thing. (mind you my dress was most lace, and didn't seem to wrinkle at all) We did get my husbands suit pressed. ****And by the way if you are getting married on a Monday, get your dress/suit sent out before Sunday. They laundry is Closed on Sundays!!

 

 

Can't remember who asked specifically, but the minister who did our symbolic ceremony, her name was listed as Guadalupe Hernandez. She was wonderful! Pretty sure she did Maggie's wedding as well.

 

Maggie- sorry to hear you are not thrilled with the photos. But there are many beautiful shots that will remind of your wonderful day! I love the one of you and your husband 'hugging' the palm tree.

 

Melissa- great to hear you found your dress! Do you have a picture to share yet?

If you don't mind me asking, how much did they quote you? We just booked the DJ through lomas travel but it seems quite expensive for 4 hours....

This is it!!!!   I love it!  Can't wait to wear it!  :)

The shoulder has a "veil" like shoulder, which I think will look really pretty on a windy beach!  (I am not wearing one on my head)

$800 US for 1-5 hours **but there is that pesky outside vendor fee....either way, when I booked, it was still less than Lomas' price.....

If you PM me with your email, I can send you more info/pics they sent me when I was inquiring.

    • 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!
