May 2010 Brides!

Recommended Posts

Cara- Ours was booked through Transat, so I am not sure about Signature. My TA had said that flight times wouldn't be released for another few weeks for that late in May. I'm assuming yours would be the same. Have you checked with your TA? I know you have been concerned about this for a while.

We are hoping to go with WestJet vacations now, and I can't believe how much lower the prices are. We are also able to get all of our deposits back from Transat b/c of the changes they made. My TA had cound out by chance too, as the changes are still not listed on our file with Transat. It does show on the public site though, and I know Signature does too. Have you checked the Signature site to see if the dates are still listed the same? I noticed the changed showed up there for our eastern guests a couple of weeks before we found out through the group coordinator.

Hey Christina,

That's so frustrating!!! Hopefully you can get everything worked out. Do you already have your inviations printed?? That would suck to have to go back and change those with the new date. sad.gif

 

Our travel agent says that we should have our flight schedules in February... but I'm so worried they're not going to fly when we need them to, like the weekend before our wedding, and we'll end up leaving Calgary too close to the wedding or like yours was, the day of! I'm terrified, because I don't even know if I could switch our wedding day, because our resort is pretty booked up... Oh the stress... lol...I'm trying not to be stressed yet, and just hope for the best!

Cara- Have you checked the signature site to see if they are offering your original flight dates online still? Like I said before, the changes showed first on their site. Waaaay before the group coordinator let us know. I'm sure it will all work out!

Although it has been really stressful, and we have had to basically re-plan everything, it all seems to be working out. We were not willing to change the wedding date- too many deposits put down everywhere! Also, who's to say they won't change it again?!

I don't remember if I mentioned it before, but we are now reserved on the airline I would rather fly anyways for the same original dates. We will also be saving over $400 pp in a better room!

 

Cara, what dates were you supposed to leave? Anyone else on here have this problem?

Oh man, that was my worst fear. We booked with Air Canada vacations so we knew our flights WAY ahead of time, like back in September! My TA told us they are the least likely to change flight times so hopefully everything stays the way it is! That's awesome though if you can rebook for cheaper! Good luck girls!

Everything worked out for me! YAY! Same original dates, we have our flight times, and it is $500 cheaper than our original price per person. Now we seem to have an influx. of people who want to come! Eeek. Maybe I need to order some more maracas...

Only crappy thing is that we don't get any special incentives, but for that much in savings for all out guests, who cares!

 

How are everyones invites going? I can't believe we are in the 3 month range already.!

I just approved the final proof for my semi-DIY invites. I'm very happy with them! Hoping to send them out near the end of February I think.

I am about to send off half of my invitations today and finish the rest tonight or tomorrow. Woo woo! We felt we needed to send them ASAP because our TA told us that the resort is almost sold out.

I'll post them for sure when they're done. The daughter of one of my mom's friends is a graphic designer who does corporate work but she used to do wedding invitations and offered to do mine. So she designed the layout, I'm printing them on photopaper, mounting them on card stock, adding a little bling and DONE!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
