I got it at NWL - a really great shop here in Regina that came highly recommended. Unfortunately because it's discontinued, you can no longer see it on the "Mon Cheri" website but I did find something online with a pic of it from some random site:

Mon Cheri Bridal 28231S Mon Cheri Bridals Collection Welcome to ShopRKBridal! The ultimate bridal shopping experience!

 

It's very simple, just like me! I'm no where near as tall or skinny as that girl but I definitely love how it looks & feels on me so I couldn't be happier - especially seeing as I'm REALLY not much of a shopper!

 

Any news to share ladies? Katie how was your wedding? Do you have any pics. you would like to share? Krystal when's your big day? Whit have you heard anything back from Ana? Where are you at on the wedding countdown now?

 

Looking forward to hearing from all of you OCT brides and OCT brides-to-be!

I will write a proper review but I'm mega-over-tired, jet-lagged, headache and have felt sick and unwell since we've been back sad.gif and we've got lots to get sorted before our AHR on saturday!

 

but just to give you a quick fix, here's the link to my brothers photos he took - JD Photographs - Kate and Chris' Wedding I have all the pics on a CD from our professional photog but still need to go through all 1400 odd of them!

 

enjoy ladies, and I'll post more soon.

 

oh, and I got to meet Krystal - several times - and we had some pics done together on her wedding day :)

Hey Lisa,

Your dress looks great! Can't wait to see the pics of you wearing it in Mexico! :) lol

Ana did respond... she said it will be extra to have the reception on the Lobby Terrace. For 3 hours including dinner, music setup etc would be $60 a person. I was pretty shocked with the price to say the least! lol So I think we are going to stick with our original plan at the Villa Marina. I am just waiting for Ana to reply about having our dancing, bouquet/garter toss, etc on the lobby terrace after dinner. I'm sure it will be for a fee though.

My countdown is at 86 days till the weding which means 82 days until we leave! What about you?

Whit :)

LOVE your pics Katie, you look absolutely stunning! I just sent you a facebook friend request - I'm Lisa Maria Fleury and my profile pic is my Roller Derby team logo... we just got it done up and are stoked for our first bout next weekend :)

 

So Katie from your pics. it looks like you had your wedding on the terrace and dinner in the banquet hall - is that right? What made you decide to have the wedding on the terrace vs. the beach? How did that work out for you guys? Did your night end in the banquet hall or did you guys just hang out wherever the action was happening that night? I feel like I have a million questions for you but I'll wait to hear all the details when you have a moment to relax and enjoy being Mrs. Day for a while - that's so exciting!!!

 

Yikes Whit - $60/person seems a bit steep to me too! What was she charging you for the dinner at the Vila Marina? According to our wedding website, which is still a work in progress, we're sitting at 247 more sleeps! Here's a link to the site:

Lisa & Matt - wedding website by mywedding.com

 

So great to hear from you ladies, there's so much comfort in knowing and sharing all this invaluable info :)

 

Chat again soon!

Oh Whit I forgot to mention.... I went out to Michael's to get a few things and with my receipt got a 50% off voucher so I may just pick up a few of those wicked nice vase/margarita glasses - hope you don't mind me piggy backing on your fantastic centre piece idea?

hey Lisa,

we had our ceremony on the rooftop terrace which is totally out of the way and totally private - no-one anywhere near you or your wedding party. we didn't get married on the beach as we wanted something more private, and I HAD to be able to wear a great pair of heels!! I loved it, as we went onto the beach for photos afterwards anyway so kinda got the best of both worlds.

we chose the banquet hall after hearing about the lobby terrace - it's not private at all and all other hotel guests can basically be sat inside looking out at you - they're literally just behind you! plus it was sooo hot, we were glad to be in the airconditioning!

after our private reception finished at 10pm we all headed up to the lobby bar and hung out there.

I don't regret one single decision we made and would keep it all the same if we did it again. I loved the private-ness of the rooftop terrace, the photos on the beach, and being inside for the food.

here was what we did:

4pm - ceremony & sand ceremony on rooftop terrace
4.30pm - cocktails and nibbles on rooftop terrace
5.30pm - photos on the beach (we did photos of everyone first and then sent our guests to the lobby to relax while we had our couples photos done)
7.00pm - reception in the banquet hall
10.00pm - up to the lobby bar!

please do ask away with the questions....I can't see me having much time to do a review this week so it's easiest if you ask questions and I'll answer them!

Hey Lisa,

With the package that we have... there is no extra charges for dinner at the Villa Marina. However Ana replied about having dancing etc setup on the lobby terrace and she said that there are some fees for this... $100 for setup, $185 for sound system and $30/hour per waiter (who serves drinks and cleans the area up afterwards). This isn't as bad as $60/person... plus I think we can probably get it lowered a bit. We haven't completed decided on it yet though.

I check out your website... it is really cute! I really love the pictures from the proposal! We did a quick and easy website, it is Whitney & Dawson - wedding website by mywedding.com. I try to keep updating it, but don't have as much time to work on it as I would like to. lol

Of course you can use my idea... its not like we have any of the same guests! lol Ana might notice... but thats about it. :)

I got an overload of emails today from my travel agent and Ana about all the documents we need for legalization. So my fiance and I are making sure we have everything we need, then we have to get the documents legalized (at the Mexican consulate) and some of them translated from what I am being told. More to it than I thought! So heads up... you may be going through this in a few months! lol

12 weeks tomorrow until our wedding day! Now that sounds pretty close! lol

Whit :)

Hey Katie,

I'm so happy for you... its great to hear that you loved every moment of your special day! Also great to hear yet another bride compliment Ana! :)

Here are a few questions I have for you...
1. How was the week with all of your guests? - Did you all go on a group excursion?
2. What did you think about the hairdressers? Did the step by step pictures help? - Was it exactly what you wanted?
3. Did you get your makeup done at the spa too?
4. What did you have to eat at the Villa Marina? - Ana just sent us the menu options.
5. Did you do your dinner, first dance, etc all at the banquet hall before you went to the lobby bar? - We are torn right now about what to do regarding our reception. We want to be outside (Villa Marina/Looby Terrace) but aren't sure how it is going to work out. - Any advice on this?
6. What cake flavour did you go with? - Did you get to try them first?
7.Did you and your hubby stay for an extra week?

I'm sure I will end up having more questions for you... but I will leave it at that for now! lol

Thanks.
Whit :)
