Back from our Halifax trip - to a DW!

Recommended Posts

So I got back from a fun mini-holiday to Halifax, on the East coast, on Sunday. FI and I went to a friend's DW out there! It was a great excuse to go do some sightseeing and have some time on our own. :)

 

We flew Porter airlines from Ottawa, which was fab - free food and alcohol (!) - as it's a relatively new charter airline.

We arrived on Thursday and picked up our rental car (which was enormous) and drove to Lunenberg. I've always wanted to go there. It was so romantic...

Cute little horses - horse rides around town with people wearing top hats... LOL!

It would have been fun to go on one of these shark fishing tours...

The worst thing was that we could not hear the ceremony at all! I've never been so frustrated.... I'm not sure if it was because it was outside and there was background noise or if they were speaking really quietly, but it was so frustrating frown.gif

She looked beautiful though. :)

Getting emotional after the ceremony. She had really pretty white/green orchids in her hair:

The reception was at the Halifax Club - a very old club that was really beautiful. Linens were gorgeous... not sure if you can tell from this pic.

It was a very no-frills wedding. Very suited to the couple.

FI and I had a good time on the dance floor, trying to dance salsa and meringue to regular songs. :)

 

Me and the bride. I look huge compared to her. She's so tiny! Must-get-reduction! (and lose pounds...)

Me on the flight home. Phew! It was fun :)

Thanks, Raeka :) He was so cute this trip. Well, he always is smile72.gif

It was gorgeous. But the noise (lack of noise) factor really threw me off.
Now I'm wondering if our wedding on the beach will have microphones.
I think it must be worse not to be able to hear a ceremony than to hear it through a microphone...

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
