And just writing this has me tearing up so definitely no sappy music lol. I want something upbeat but still romantic.

Brad Paisley - He didn't have to be ... Heres the lyrics (sorry its such a long post, haha,  I googled the lyrics)

 

"When a single mom goes out on a date with somebody new
It always winds up feeling more like a job interview
My momma used to wonder if she'd ever meet someone
Who wouldn't find out about me and then turn around and run

I met the man I call my dad when I was five years old
He took my mom out to a movie and for once I got to go
A few months later I remember lying there in bed
I overheard him pop the question and prayed that she'd say yes

And then all of a sudden
Oh, it seemed so strange to me
How we went from something's missing
To a family
Lookin' back all I can say
About all the things he did for me
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be

I met the girl that's now my wife about three years ago
We had the perfect marriage but we wanted somethin' more
Now here I stand surrounded by our family and friends
Crowded 'round the nursery window as they bring the baby in

And now all of a sudden
It seemed so strange to me
How we've gone from something's missing
To a family
Lookin' through the glass I think about the man
That's standin' next to me
And I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be

Lookin' back all I can say
About all the things he did for me
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be

Yeah, I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be
Because he didn't have to be
You know he didn't have to be "

Hey lmarie,

 

We ate at Dolce Vita and LOVED it. Everyone spoke highly of the dinner. We ended up with Vanilla cake. I never actually had a piece, just a small tasting when we took "cake" pictures, but everyone said that it was really good!

I hope all you girls are having better luck than I am with travel agents!!  msncry.gif

I started off by going through AMA travel in Edmonton in AUGUST 2010 and they told me I had to wait until November because I was putting in a request too early and the hotel didn't have their prices out yet. So i waited and waited then the travel agent gave us a quote $900 more than what she had said it would be originally!!! So we made some tweaks and again, I waited and waited... I tried contacting her over and over again but she wasn't returning my phone calls or anything!

So i called around to a bunch of different travel agencies and finally got a good quote that we were happy with - from itravel2000 in Toronto.  The travel agent has been great and we gave her our Visa number to go ahead and put the deposits down for all immediate family and the bridal party to hold the price and our seats. We made our invitations and got them out well in advanced and we were bombarded with people asking us when and how they could book to go! I sent them out last Friday and was so excited that we could now offically start seeing who was going to come. I have the photographer booked, the florist booked, the band and my family have their vacation requests put in at work for the time off...

I get a phone call from the travel agent this morning saying that Our deposit didn't go through because the "tour operator" - Air Canada Vacations is at a stop sell with the hotel and cannot get any more hotel rooms for the dates that we want!!!!!
wtf.gif She called Sunwing and Signature Vacations and they all said the same thing!! So i called the hotel myself to see if there's anything I could do and to see if it is true that they are actually sold out for August already?! They told me they have plenty of room for my 50 guests but I would have to book through the hotel if i wanted them....

I'm totally boggled on what to do... it's going to be so confusing to make our guests book their flights through one travel agent and the hotel through another.... ekkkkkkkkk!!!! I'm so confused and upset... of course this would happen after we were told everything was a go, the invites are sent and we have stuff booked!

I am so sorry you are having trouble. I was told by a few different travel agents that the flight details for this august 2011 were not out until october 2010, so we waited and booked the wedding and the all inclusive package the beginning of October 2010. But I do have a few people who will not be able to know if they can go to the wedding until it gets much closer to the date. So it looks like they will have trouble going through a travel agent as well, if all of the travel companies have sold out of packages/rooms for the hotel for august. Since our travel agent used Air Canada Vacations too. I guess we will be in the same boat.

We have friends from the U.S. who have booked the trip to go to our wedding themselves online. They booked their flights and the hotel seperately, they didnt use a travel agent. Maybe that is something your guests could do, if they have no other options?
