I hope to dear gosh I'm not forgetting anything.... yikes.

Hi ladies - when I email aurora, I always just reply to her previous email/my previous email, that way it's a chain of emails and she can see our previous chat. That way my name/wedding date/conf.number is always in the subject line as well. Seems to work for me and she always gets back within 2 days to my emails. I also try not to send too many questions at once, then it tends to be longer response times. Hope that helps you ladies!!

 

Congrats LeNell!!! I'm so excited for you!!! And you too ddk5576!!! And you are moving to Canada - where to? I'm hope you'll love it here!!! :)

Thanks everyone, Aurora finally did get back to me, which is good. One of the things i asked her about was substituting items in the packages. I am opting for the the "Dreams of Love Wedding" but don't need a lot of the things included (like the judge since we're doing a symbolic ceremony). I wanted to use the money these items would have cost towards something else, like food or center pieces, but Aurora said no. Is anyone else having this same problem?? Has anyone gotten a different answer to this sort of question?

In my opinion gone are the days when Dreams would happily trade services or add on freebies. When reading through older posts it seems that once upon a time this happened but not so much nowsad.gif

Are you sure that its not better value for you to do the free wedding and add in your "wants" rather than pay for a package and take away your "dont wants"?

That being said I did find them very accomodating and I do think that they do everything within reason to make the most of your day:)
I have included below some of the things that we requested and they were more than happy to do. It may help give you an idea of whats do-able and what not.

1. We swapped my hair styling for my MOH's (like for like really which is the kind of thing I think they will do no probs) = no extra cost
2. Cancelled a floral centrepiece with less than 24 hours to go because we realised it was extra cost = no cancellation charge
3. Swapped Hors d'Ouvres cocktail hour menu for mexican style tapas = no extra cost
4. Added refreshing towels to be given out after the ceremony. Natalia our WC was waiting with these herself as we exited the chapel she did think there would be extra cost for this but whether she forgot or the manager waived it im not sure = no extra charge
5. Offered our guests the choice of 2 entrees, 1 salad/1 veg salad, 2 meat mains + a veggie option, 1 dessert = no extra cost
6. Requested extra lighting for our reception, admittedly they were spotlights and not "mood" lighting but they did the trick = no extra cost.

Hope you manage to come to a solution soon

Are there any brides here who had rain on their wedding day?

 

And if you did how did this change your plans? Did you opt for the chapel? I just have a concern if there are multiple weddings the same day and it rains does everyone use the chapel and have their times changed around?

Northernflasher - amazing review, thank you so much for sharing everything!

 

I have a question about transportation, not using a taxi but getting like vans to shuttle my guests back and forth for an excursion, did anyone use a specific company for this or have any suggestions of someone I could contact? Any help would be great, I haven't gotten very far on my searches as they all seem to be in Cancun.

    • 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!
