We really have been slacking haven't we!!?? lol

 

Less than a month for me until the big day!!  My fiance is just wearing one of his Calvin Klein suits that he already owns. He bought it last year for our trip to vegas and it looks really nice so to save money we are just going with that. Black pants, white shirt, black vest, etc. I am not sure if he plans on wearing the coat or not.. I imagine he will be pretty hot if he does, but he is considering wearing it for just the ceremony.. but may just wear the vest instead.. so that he looks different than the groomsmen.  They will be in black pants with white shirts  :)  

 

MrsRobinson, I love what you have them wearing!!  Beachy but very nice! Too bad it's so expensive, but I am sure it will be worth it!!

I am so excited for you Alison! Sounds lovely what your fiance will be wearing! Also nice you could save a bit of money!

 

What kind of shoes are you wearing? I have been searching for the perfect flat sandal but can't find any....!

Well they fitted my dress for shoes with a 3.5 inch heel, but I may still go barefoot for the ceremony. Or wear my favourite flip flips that I have had for 10 years, hahaha.  And then put the shoes on for pictures and for the reception, but I'll make up my mind once I get there.

 

I had the HARDEST time finding 3.5 inch heels that I like though. I wanted a fuchsia pair and I was starting to give up, but after my boudoir shoot on Tuesday, I decided to go to the mall and I found some at Nine West!! So happy!

DPA Ladies!

 

Alison, you're getting married in less than a month, you must be getting so excited!!! Oh and I love your shoes, I am looking for fuchsia heels as well, I may have to go to my local nin west store :)

 

I was wondering what you ladies are doing for your bouquet? Are you picking one from the resort catalouge? A bride on here emailed me the flower catalouge, but I was wondering if anyone knows if colours can be changed? I like some of the bouquet arrangements but not necessarily the colours!

 

I think I am going to go ahead and order my FI a linen suit from studio suits. There are some great reviiews and some not so great reviews on here about them, but I think I may chance it.

Thanks Aliie! Nine West always make such nice shoes!! And yes I am getting sooooo excited!!! :)

Are any of you ladies bringing a guest book for people to sign? I mentioned it to my FI and it thought it would be a nice idea, but I'm not really sure where to get one, any ideas?

 

For my bouquet, I decided to just order from wedideas.com.  I ordered from the "ready to go" items because I procrastinated until the very last minute, and they actually aren't even here yet, hahaha. They have been shipped though, so they should be here within the week. I'll post pictures when they come in.

I decided to do this for 2 reasons!  a) I also didn't like the resort flowers, they just weren't bright enough for me  

and B) They won't wilt, so I am using the BMs bouquets as centerpieces after! Since 8-10 people can be seated per table, we will only need 3  guest tables, not including the head table, so I'll just reuse their bouquets, and bring some candles or something.

 

Oh! I also have a file Jacki sent me of all the centrepieces the resort offers! The one I liked was $150.. so it was a little steep for me, but some of them may not be as expensive.   If you want me to email it to you, just let me know!

Hey Alison,

 

Great idea about using the BM's bouquets for the centerpiece flowers, I am also considering doing this. However, I am still interested in the resort centerpieces. Another bride sent me the centerpiece file, but I have no idea what the prices are! I also can't justify spending $150 for a centerpeice. Is there a separate file with all the prices, or did Jacki just send you a quote for the one you liked?

If you have a price list can you send it to me? allison.burns@utoronto.ca

Hey Allison,

unfortunately she didn't send me a file with all the prices. Really would have been helpful though. 

I am trying to get prices to just rent vases, but instead of just answering me, she keeps asking other questions...  like what kind of flowers I'm bringing etc., so that she knows what size of vase I need.  I know she's just trying to be helpful, but I just wanted prices for small, medium, and large vases so I could have a basic idea of cost.  arrgg

Yes, I can see how that would be frustrating! I really am thinking that I may do the same as you; use BM's bouquets as centrepieces. If Jacki does let you know the prices of vase rentals can you post them on here?

My biggest problem right now is that I keep changing my mind about decoration and flowers colours! I need to just pick a theme and stick to it lol :)

Wow, I'm a newbie here & seriously wish I found this sight months ago!! We're getting married on April 20th, 2012. All of you ladies seem sooooooooo much more organized than I am! It doesn't help that I barely ever get a response from Sandra & if I do it's not exactly helpful lol. Has anybody hired an outside DJ? I am a wedding DJ in Canada & I feel that $220/hr is an absolute rip-off!!! Any advice?

 

PS - congrats to all of you ladies on your engagements! Despite the lack of correspondence I truly feel like this is one of the best places ever to get married! xo

    • 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!
