Do you have friends in Ottawa/are you from Ottawa? Seems a bit of a distance to come from Texas :) You probably liked our summer weather - I hear although it's boiling for us, it's lots cooler for those coming from the south!

p.s. did your strategy work? are the invites done?
Andrea, I actually grew up just outside of Ottawa in a small town called Renfrew - so I was home visiting family. It sure does make it tough for you though when your BM's are out of the country.

So - how is everyone doing on their "to do's"? I got my invitations all printed and cut, but I ran out of star-fish, so I had to order more and am currently waiting on those, once them come, we'll be sending out in the mail.
I also picked up my BM dresses this week and shipped them off to the girls, and my FI and I went shopping and got our bands (yippee). I started my luggage tags today (am going to send everyone luggage tags about a month before the wedding along with an informational brochure). My next big task is shoes for me (flip flops and sandals and wedding jewelery). Did anyone get flip flops anywhere?

Happy Planning - let me know how things are going for all of you.

It's funny people keep asking me how I picked Dec. 5th date and I can't even remember except that it is a Friday and I thought it would be cheaper for people to fly on a weekday. Also wanted to be out of hurricane season.

 

Although I have done a lot so far I am starting to feel very overwhelmed. Family problems seem to be mounting. Gonna get a pedicure today and have a great beach club day with my bridesmaid on Sunday.

So I've made headway on a few of my to-do's, but not much.

I find that lately I've begun to get a little overwhelmed by all the projects I want to start on and then just plain aggrevated that I can't start most of them because I'm missing some key decisions like COLOURS!!! Or my BMs dresses... they haven't gone shopping and may not... frown.gif

 

What I've sorted out since the 14th of July:

 

Create monogram/logo (THANK YOU Amarillis!!!)See if my aunt can perform our ceremony - she can't sad.gifIf not, book minister in Playa through WC - done!

 

What wasn't on my list, but I've done:

 

- Bought and received my shipment of raffia fans :)

- Bought and received some rhinestone 'Bride to Be' and 'Just Married' iron ons :)

- Bought and received our favours (cute little shell Christmas ornaments dipped in silver) :)

 

So yeah, back to the colour problem.

I can't make up my mind!

 

light pink, green (romantic feel)

fuschia, pink, lime green? (more vibrant)

fuschia and navy blue (classy)

 

Arrrrrrrrrrrgh!!!

So I'm EXTREMELY late in finding this thread...not sure how I missed it but I am also getting married in December....Dec. 6th at Secrets Capri. That seems to be a very popular date :)

 

I have a massive to do list but have been making progress until this weekend. I was supposed to put together and send out our invitations (boarding passes-we sent out luggage tags for our STDs), but after printing out the actual passes...I absolutely hated the paper we used. So now I have to try and find new paper, print them out, & assemble by next Sunday so that I won't fall too behind on my schedule.

 

I'm so glad I have this thread...I needed to vent a little!!!

I LOVE the Fuschia Pink/Lime Green combination. I've seen a few girls with that, and it looks really really good.

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
