I have also had people ask why we are getting married on a Tuesday and I thought the same thing- everyone will be there for a week so why does it matter? I do have a few guests that are looking into coming for 5 days or so b/c they cannot be away for a week so if that is the case, it might be good to plan it closer to a weekend. That being said, we still aren't too worried about it and aren't changing it. I have a question that I am sure has been asked and answered 100 times on here but I have not came across it.... How the heck do you get all the decorations, favours, etc down there without paying the airline a million bucks in extra baggage charges? Can you mail stuff to the resort in advance?

My plan is that after I package everything up in boxes/suitcases and I know how much I have, I am going to distribute to BMs, mom, etc. This will obviously still cost extra, but I think it'll cost me a lot less than if I tried to bring it all down myself.

 

Another reason I have to distribute the "supplies" because my FI is adamant that the point of doing a DW is that you don't have to have all these extras, so he thinks I'm being ridiculous planning all these details.  Men are silly- if wedding planning was up to them, we'd be getting married in a pub undecided.gif It'll be my secret, haha.

Hey Christine,

we had family that could only come down for a couple of days so we decided to have the wedding on a saturday, that way they could come down for the wedding. At the end of the day its your day and you should do what you want. 

 

Depending on how much stuff you have you can divide it. Sunwing gave us and extra 30kg of allowance. We distributed all the breakable stuff (glass candle holders, bowls etc) between our parents and sister in law. Everything else that could be checked fit nicely in a big suitcase.
 

I was told not to mail anything in advance as it cannot only get lost but it can get pricey.

 

good luck!

Hi,

 

A quick tip, some hotels will let you pre-ship things. Check with your wedding coordinator and you may be able to ship stuff instead of dragging it on a plane.  Allow 8 weeks for shipping though as it typically takes 6 weeks to get there and better be safe.

 

All the best!

Thanks everyone for the feedback on how to get stuff down there. Once I know how much stuff I will have to bring I will be able to make a better plan with these ideas!

Has anyone brought their own wine for the reception? I just got the wine list from AS and the prices are a little ridiculous ($55 for a bottle of Malbec that I can get here for under $12). We want to have a bottle of red and white at each table but that would come out to over $1000 just for wine! We are hoping to go to town once we're there and pick up a few cases. Does anyone know if the AS allows this?

Hi Everyone!

 

We will not have a lot of guests at our wedding (20ish) so we were going to do a cocktail party between the ceremony and the dinner we will have at Spoons so that we can take pictures and everyone can have a few drinks to relax. My question is what can we do after dinner? And does Spoons allow us to play any music or will it be dead silent in there? Does anyone know if there are places that will be open that we can move our party to or do you have another suggestion?

 

Eva

    • 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!
