@@Ydolem I've spoken to the Toronto Karisma rep at length about why Canadians done receive any of the resort perks and free events like the Americans do. The short answer is that our packages work differently - us Canadians buy a package with the flight included where as the Americans have to add the flight on separately. This results in their travel costs being much higher. With Transat now being the sole operator they are very focused on working hard at keeping costs low. To be honest I would rather have the cost of the trip be lower for my guests than have a couple of free private events. Just wanted to put this out there…hopefully it might make you feel better about your costs.  :)

Hey girls, hope your wedding planning is fabulous.

 

Question: For those providing welcome bags, how much is your budget for each bag/tote? Any tips for those who have done welcome bags where they got quality looking tote bags without breaking the bank?

@@snswedding2016 thanks!

We had guests from the US booking directly through Karisma and not receiving discounts on their packages. Because my husband and I are Canadian we did not get the promos. If we were American we would have with the number of guests we had coming from the US.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll start planning for the bags now. My wedding is only 6 months away. Starting to feel like all of these things are creeping up!

Ah! I haven't even started on invites yet. We have a good idea of what we want to do for invites but not 100% yet. When are you having them sent by @@carrieandsam ?

    • Yes, this happens all the time. One thing to consider is maybe to have the wedding at an off-site location where all your guests can go. There are several in Puerto Vallarta and Cancun Mexico. Most hotels offer a free wedding, but if a majority of guests are not staying there you'll be paying for not only the day pass, but for the food and beverage for each outside guest. Thanks - Sadie  
    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
