That's funny. I think we are also going with the calvin suite from Men's wearhouse. But we are doing the khaki color. And we are doing the vest under the jacket. I want the guys to look a little more formal but not in tuxes. Also, this way when we are dancing they can take off their jackets and but not just be in shirts.

Chong, we went this weekend and MW is running out of that style. I guess with summer weddings coming up. Also, they probably won't have in the fall so smart to do now. We are going to another MW this weekend. Hopefully it works out.

Also, MW is running a sale right now. Buy 1 suite get 1 for $100. We are ordering them all together and letting the guys split the difference. That's assuming the groomsmen get me their measurements this week

Same for me and I also booked through DW.com. Good to know that they are giving us the same rate, especially considering we'll be there the same time.

How many guests are you expecting?

We actually rented Gray suits from MW! They were calvin Klien :)
It was a great deal, White shirt, vest, bowtie/tie , pants, socks and shoes and suspenders for $60. They looked great on the guys and went very well with our colors~

Hmm... promotion for free private cocktail party. I will look for that email. Thanks for the info. I have Gayle Hirsch as my WC. She was also WC for Amy.

I am in Oil & Gas business... I have been traveling a lot to NO since my project is in NO.

So I am guessing you already found your dress? I have my dress and bridesmaid dress all figured out. Started to look for my future hubby's clothes - all white. This is going to be challenging. Let me know if you know a place.


Chong, I called you back yesterday :) GImme a call again when you get a chance :)

Our travel agent has been working on getting everything sorted out for us. We can't use Claudia as our photographer anymore, but they got someone else from her team...still not pleased, but can't do much and at least we like her team.

We still don't know if we can have the same location for our ceremony and reception...when I talked to my TA yesterday her response was...."we are working on it and will let you know monday". Now I'm having to deal with many of my guests calling and asking what is going on and complaining about all of this. People are telling me to demand a full refund and cancel the whole thing! They don't understand that we have planned this wedding for 2 years and we will be out money if we cancel and book somewhere else...some people are even saying to cancel and do a wedding in toronto!! I really don't want to listen to other people's complaints about this right now. I think I'm gonna have Matt call our TA today and tell them that they need to give us some more info and they need to start contacting our guests to let them know what's going on.
Meghan, I cant believe how thoughtless some people are. I swear weddings bring out the crazies in people lol.
I wish I could help you somehow, what a mess!! People have no idea what it takes planning a dw and how your blood sweat and tears goes into this. So any negitive comments aren't needed or wanted. I would have your bridesmaid(or mom, someone close to you) help with calling your guest and ironing things out to eliminate hearing complaints. On the other end of it, I can see how some guest might be weary about it after all this, but maybe just send out a very positive email to everyone giving them a quick apology for the confusion and changes but be firm in saying, Our dream wedding in Mexico is still on wink.gif and so is the party lol, and that we will contact you asap to fill you in on all the new details..
I hope things get easier for you sister, hang in there- pretty soon your gonna be sip'n some cocktails in the sand in mexicoooo and gonna be a MRS :)

I have about 25 guests confirmed and booked. But I am waiting on 5-10 more people to make the decision... it's hard to press the issue of making the reservation as soon as possible. at some point, you just have to let them do what they want to do.

We are staying 10 days at the resort. We wanted to go to Cozumel for a week of so (we are divers.. and Cozumel is awesome!!!) but decided to explore Cancun, Mayan Ruins and other things around the area.

Did you pick the photographer? I just asked Elizabeth Medina for quote and she said min 6 hrs at $4750. Wow.. that's doubling my budget for the entire wedding... I do really like her pictures though. It's going to be decision to make.

    • 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!
