I have been reading some of your post and think it is awesome how you have all become sort of a little "family".
I have so many questions and so little time.
I noticed that there were a few post regarding fees for bringing your own things to decorate with. Did anyone get the final word on that?
Cecile is my WP. Has anyone worked with her?
Also, I am thinking of doing the pearl package and just adding on. I tink that might be the cheapest way to go. I have also debated doing the silver ir gold but just do not know if they are worth the extra money.
You girls seem much more informed than I. Hope you do not mind all the questions.

Thanks in advance,
Kortney
CONGRATS Kortney, and WELCOME!!!! These are girls are a-maz-ing!!!! Let us know what we can do to help!!!

Sounds like you're getting a lot done! It's so nice when unexpected people jump in and want to help, makes you feel good :)

I've added it to the list!!



Ok, no problem, music can be easy to choose, we just need to narrow it down. Do you want some votes?

What is your processional song and what versions are the options?

Also, have you searched BDW? There are a handful of threads that breakdown everyone elses options for each moment, signing the register, recessional etc. That should give you options. Maybe to compromise, you split the songs, half are you choice, half are his. Just so you choose the songs quickly :)



Added!
I AGREE! How about you give us a list of song choices and we can help you decide...sometimes you just need a little nudge wink.gif

Amy,
You remind me so much of one of my closest friends. It kinds freaks me out when I look at your picture. So many times with this type of communication you do not have a face to put with a name. In this case I feel as if I am talking to one of my girls.

I am totally freaking out because our wedding is 6 months from tomorrow and I have no dress, no invites, no save the dates, no bridesmaid dresses. I feel like I am so behind. On top of everything we just bought a house and I am trying to redecorate. I feel like a chicken with my head cutt off.

I am sorry to vent but It just keeps coming.
DOn't freak out!! I did all that stuff at 6 months...first things first, go ahead and figure out your save the dates...Vista Print is great or you could even do an email save the date for now. You can put your website on there and have all your details there for them to read...next get your dress! I just ordered my bridesmaids dresses last week (I am a little over 3 months out). Do you guys have Bella Bridesmaid? It is FABULOUS!!!!! My friend owns the one in my town, but I know they have some franchises around the country. If not, here are some of their lines...it will at least give you a place to start...
Alix & Kelly, Lula Kate, Coren Moore, Vera Wang, Lela Rose, Jenny Yoo, Priscilla of Boston, etc etc. Their website is Bella Bridesmaid. You can do it!! Just start making your list and working on something each day!

I am not sure why this process is so difficult for me!!!!!

Has anyone else had any problems like this?
You're definitely not alone girl! I think EVERYONE has had to deal with stuff like this throughout the whole process. It's amazing how contracts and agreements and wording all of a sudden changes meaning!!!! My TA explained today that these resorts have a crazy way of wording things when it comes to the rooms. Sometimes it has to be 16 rooms for 3 nights...as in 16 rooms Thursd night, 16 rooms friday night, 16 rooms saturday night...instead of just 16 rooms in general. That's just one example. I would print out everything you have and make them explain to you why you are not getting these upgrades. If they cannot provide you a reasonable answer, then they should grant you those promises. Ridiculous, I know. But just the way these people work sometimes...it's a constant battle! fencing.gif

Oh we're receiving a free room... for two nights.

What are you planning?

Amy, how about you? Food was the most important thing for me going into this but had since changed a bit. Eager to here the menu options other's have chosen.
I'm doing the Donkey Cocktail hour with the 5 Mexican passed canapes on the yoga palaps on the beach, which may or may not be offered anymore.

I'm doing a private reception on the Zocollo Terrace with the Surf & Turf, steak and lobster, appetizer is a trio of ceviche & dessert is chocolates with raspberries. It was the only thing I could think of that all my guests would like.

Yeah I thought about that too. But about half of my guests love good food and there are quote afew (basically my entire side of the family) that's picky and won't try new things. That's why I think we are going with the Italian Family Style. There are a few appetizer options and side dishes and then they can choose from salmon. shrimp, chicken or beef for the main course. I think I am going to "fancy it up" for the cocktail recpetion so I can have the best of both worlds.

I am so glad that they are letting me pull canapes from each of the different menus and create my own.

I also wanted to have the donkey but then my co-worker started getting into the logistics of that. (I won't go into the points he brought up bc I don't want to deter you) but either way I am anxious to hear how that goes for you. :)

OMG, can you believe you are just over 2 weeks out? After 2 years of planning muct feel like a relief! :)

    • 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!
