Where are my Edmonton, AB ladies at?

Recommended Posts

huh02.gif Has anyone found a marriage commisioner in Edmonton to do their legal ceremony? We are doing a symbolic ceremony in Mexico to avoid the paperwork and blood tests, so we need to do the legal stuff here. I found a list through www.servicealberta.ab.ca of names in the Edm area, but I have no clue where to start. It seems that $100 is the lowest for a legal only "ceremony", plus the costs of the licence and certificate. Does anyone have any advice or recommendations?

Sheila2011 - Your dress looks pretty much identical to mine!  I love it, but maybe I'm biased, hahaha.  I got my dress from ABC bridal, it looks really ghetto but me and my mom decided to check it out, we'd already been to so many other shops, and there it was!  I fell in love, and I didn't want to rush, so I went home to think about it and went back the next day to buy it!

lowkeybride - I did have peoiple to help, but in the end it didn't matter because as soon as I found the dress, I just knew, and didn't need anybodies opinion, I mean they loved it, but even if they hated it it didn't matter.

There is a listing of all the marraige commisioners in Alberta, and the emails and websites and stuff.  I'd try contacting a whole bunch to see who can give you the best price. I'm lucky I picked Jamaica beacuse we don't have to worry about translation, or blood work.  The resort takes care of it ALL for you with the wedding package, so less stress for me.  The only thing I have to do it order long-form birth certificates.

 

Sorry I had 3 posts in a row, I just discovered the forum and went through all the pages this afternoon, hahaha.

I found mine at ABC Bridal on 118 ave near downtown, but I went to a bunch of other ones.  Wedding World had a pretty good selection of off the rack too, but I found they had a lot of the same style, they didn't have any unique cuts and the ones I did find were like $5000 and I wasn't going to spend that much.  I'm not spending more on the dress then the wedding!!!

 

I'd stay away from West Ed, they charge much higher prices beacuse of the cost to rent a store in the mall, so you'd be throwing your money away.  I'm a MOH at my BFFs wedding and I went there to try on the dress she wanted me to buy, it was almost $50 cheaper than other stores.

I found my maggie dress at Bridal Debut south location.  I actually ended up buying it off the rack, it was discontinued the same week it was brought in and I bought it...so not many people tried it on and a fabulous price. Great selection, and very helpful.  The lady in alterations is very nice and very knowledgable. 

Good luck in all your planning everyone!

Would you suggest calling ahead to places to see if you can purchase samples...or just go and wing it??

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
