I think because i'm a uk bride its different - we dont have a central office (i think US have a miami office or something??) I havent even got a contract! I requested the catholic package right at the beginning. I was told I would be contacted by a WC three months before so in the meantime I had my paperwork sorted and signed and did my catholic marriage classes, get my dress etc. the three month time came and went so I decided to email maribel at MP for some info on flowers. she was very helpful and got back within 2 days. I was then assigned Cristina. I sent her an email with some standard questions (meal options, hair/makeup costs) it took her 5 weeks to email me a response and she included the package options. This was the first time I had seen the immaculate package option details so obv I freaked when I read the small print!! At no point was I told it wasnt legal! RTFM.gif

I emailed Cristina and maribel sunday morning and had a response back she doesnt think its a problem to have both a civil ceremony first to get the legal stuff done then have the priest take over and do the blessing. I have emailed the priest so hopefully he can clear things up, I dread to think how much they are going to charge me thou!!

Then we have people that say they are coming, then say no, then say yes.... and it is totally frustrating.

I am trying to be open about it, but seriously if I was invited to a DW I would figure out the price, budget.. save..and either book or not.

I have so much going on right now, and dealing with our guests is driving me insane. We are busy with our Design Company, which is great but has delayed OUR invites and are now going out tom. They should have been out the end of March, which is only a few weeks behind, but still!!

Anyway, sorry I vented, but I read all your posts and needed to spill my thoughts as well.

I am just thankful I have this forum! Without you girls, and the previous brides I don't think I would have gotten this far in planning!!
Thanks
Vent away!! Same here if someone asked me to a destination wedding I would look at prices, see if I could get time off and then decide yes or no. either they can afford it or they cant, just be honest! I love how some people avoid you like the plague when you need a answer. Its quite funny really to watch them squirm when you know they arent coming just havent got the balls to tell you! I just need to know so I can organise favours, name place cards etc. One of our guests wanted to wait and see if the prices went down... they havent they have gone up and now hes not happy but its really not my problem. I have enough stress thanks :)

Jodimichelle: my FI works for Continental. The summer airfare price wars usually start in May. Also try www.airfarewatchdog.com; this is a cool site that will send you email alerts with airfares. You can chose how often you want to receive them and you specify if you'd like alerts from a certain city, to a certain city, or city-to-city. Additionally, let your guest who don't use this site know that the best time to shop plane tickets is Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.
I thought I thanked you. Sorry.. Thank you so much for this info. I passed it along to some of my friends!!

    • We just had a destination wedding and both my girls were flower girls!  The dresses from princessly were perfect!  Lots of complements! Would definitely recommend them!  Very reasonably priced.
    • I just want to say I got the best flower girl dresses on Princessly. It was very reasonably priced, they customized the dress to fit my daughter and it came within a couple of weeks. My daughter looked amazing and so did her cousin (who also wore the dress). The company was so easy to deal with and I’m so happy I chose them! Here are a couple of pics! 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
