Thanks for sharing this! I am wanting to buy a second hand cheap dress for my trash the dress photos, and I am thinking the selection will probably be pretty sparse at second hand stores. I will definitely check this place out!

I am planning my wedding at  Beach Palace for April or May 2013- Right now I am trying to confirm pricing. A reasonable price for my guests is most important to me. Any recomendations in regards to Travel Agents, AMA, Flight Centre?

I am using Crowfoot AMA and they have been great so far. Quick to respond, and really great service. I agree with everyone's comments about Air Canada, with the little experience I have. For a few weeks, apparently they were considering cancelling direct flights to Cancun...it didn't end up happening, thank goodness! But my travel agent was prepared to switch everyone's flights over, and do all of the work. Lots of stress off my back.

I was initially working with Romantic Planet vacations but felt they were extremely slow to respond and provide information. So much so that I started booking with AMA, and got a random email 1.5 months later from Romantic Planet saying they hadn't heard from me.....AMA is much more personal!!

Lovesnick, if you are looking for an inexpensive second dress and Novia Mia doesn't have a sale or what you are looking for you can also check Vespucci, its a huge consignment store in Calgary and they often have a bunch of wedding dresses. I don't know what the styles are like or prices but I have seen them in there, so it might be worth a peak. It is on Elbow drive and Heritage in the South.

 

Cheers!

Hi Ladies,

 

I too was looking for a TTD dress. I stopped by Novia Mia on Friday- they do have a bunch of their sample gowns they are selling off for $300 but they were all too big for me. Smallest size was 8 bridal and it was still huge on me. Im a street size 4-5

 

I have been on the hunt for my second dress and am running out of options.. I might order from online?

I've also used Carmen's Stitches (Adriana's mom) for alterations on a bridesmaids dress. Her prices are pretty reasonable and I had zero issues with the dress but I recommend being very clear when explaining what you want.  I will probably use her for my wedding dress for small alterations. She is located in Country Hills area.

Great to know! What exactly do you mean when you say "be very clear" ? I have my alterations for my wedding dress scheduled with her (because I didn't know anyone else to do it) and its scheduled for Nov 5. I am SO nervous to have my dress altered but it has to be because it doesn't fit 100%, in general its taking in the sides, putting on a belt and doing the bustle.

 

Thanks!

Make sure you are clear about exactly what you want, she usually writes everything down. I recommend repeating it just to make sure you are both on the same page. She is a very nice lady and her work is great.

Hey ladies.

I have yet to order my travel mugs for my OOT bags, and was wondering if there was anyone who would like to share shipping or make up a minimum order count? I want plain non customized mugs, have a few in mind from www.discountmugs.com, and www.promopays.ca. Thought we might as well try to save together! PM me if you have some suggestions/thoughts!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
