    That's great to know. Thanks for your advice. The travel agents around the Toronto area are all saying we should get started with the booking before seats sell out, so it's nice to hear another perspective.

      The rates I quoted were for a 7 day stay leaving from Toronto, ON. Sorry, where is PA and MD? Sounds like you are getting a much better deal. It's nice that you are able to do it in deposits. I'm still waiting for quotes through out TA's. Hopefully I'll get some better deals.

       

      Julie

          Hello everyone I have been on this site reading through this wonderful forum and getting so much information from everyone. I have a question and I am hoping someone will be able to answer me...If you hire an outside DJ for the reception do you still have to pay the $450 price for the resort DJ or can you just pay the $125 day pass fee?

           

          I am asking because I think I read that a bride had a friend DJ and she still had to pay the $450 for the resort DJ....

            Yup but I'm a planner, so don't pay me any attention lol.  I think you are on track.  Try looking for a destination wedding checklist.  You can't use me as an example because I am done, a little too early lol.

                Hey there,

                 

                I wouldn't worry too much about what you haven't done. At this stage, the main thing is to make sure you get your dress, as most dress places take anywhere from 4-8 months to get your dress in. Other than that, start looking at mens beach wedding attire - depending on where you live (if it is Manitoba), the stores might not have beach wedding attire like linen and such in until the summer. You might have to order online so it would be worth looking into at this point. At the 6 month mark, I had bought my dress, booked the resort and the group rate, sent out invites (to give guests enough time to book vacation and save money), thought about and started buying guest favours (OOT bag stuff) since I wanted to spread out my expenses so that they didn't all accumulate at once. I had also discussed with my FI some of the smaller details such as where we wanted to hold the ceremony, the rings, and talked about the music. When you choose a destination wedding, most of the details don't get worked out until about 1 month out - part of the reason why we choose to do it this way! Take care of the major things like dress and invitations, and the rest will fall into place. I leave in 12 days and my wedding is in 17 days and I am all set to go!! If you have any more questions feel free to ask!

                  Oh wow that sounds beautiful! I will suggest it to my FI who is still a bit sensitive (since it is so new) and seems to be totally closed off to the idea of doing anything for his uncle as it would be too emotional. Once we get a little further from the hurt and a little closer to the happy, I will bring it up with him. I like this idea very much. Wendy you must be getting so excited!! We are so close now!  Thanks for your condolences by the way. We should meet up at the bar one of our days there for a drink!

                  Sorry to hear about your extended family's loss.

                   

                  I can't believe its getting so close.  FI and I are working on music for our guests mp3 players tonight before I leave for CA on Monday for a week long conference (any other time a great experience, just poor timing this time for me).  15 days til our wedding!!!

                    Thanks Jen!! That's great advice :) 

                    I'm getting married in 7 months and so far I've booked the date, sent out invitations and made the website. I'm hoping to have my dress chosen in the next month. I'm really starting to stress and feel like I have SO MUCH to do!!! I really hope that it all works out in the end :)

                      The major things get figured out easily, its near the end when you are doing all the details and if you are anything like me, add lots of extra details (LOL) and make more work for yourself, that you feel a little stressed. Write everything down - make a list of the things you feel like you have to do, and just cross them off as you do them. Then you know you won't forget anything!
