    I'm getting married Dec 1 and we are using Marcia Loder to do our legal ceremony in November before we leave for Mexico.  I think it is $175 and she is performing it in her home in the south side.  Quick and legal is all I wanted, but she did offer longer ceremonies with poems and vows. I want my Mexican wedding to still feel like the real deal, even if it's not legal.  (My mom is our officiant so I'm sure it will be even better than if we had regular "legal" at home wedding in Edmonton!)

The dress she found is white, blue and green, very nice for the beach!

       


       

      Haha I told my mom too that she couldn't wear black, she had to pick colours.  All her dresses are black.  My mom found one that was purple and pink, super pretty and out of her style ranger she normally wears but she looks GREAT and my dad is happy she followed my advice!

        Too funny! I am using Brian Napier as well in St.Albert. He came highly recommended and his 'Legal Only' Ceremony is $120.00 if you bring your own witnesses or $30 per witness if you don't.

         

        Here is his website: http://www.customvows.ca/about.html

         

        He is very quick and efficient with his emails and suggested that we do the legal ceremony a week prior to leaving. I think personally I would rather having the legal ceremony in Mexico, but with all the hoops you have to jump trough, and the extra cost, and the time it takes to get your documentation from Mex & translated.... This is well worth it!

          I just got my dress back...wow Debbie's Bridal fashions did an amazing job on my dress! It doesn't even look like I got it altered it looks like I bought it that way~ Very pleased. If you guys are looking to get your dress altered/hemmed, go to Debbie's! She has been sewing since she was 12! She knows what she is doing!

But if the reviews are as good as it is - it is all worth it :)

            Thats so great to hear!! I am really glad that you had a great experience with them, I think I am going to use them with my dress. How long did the alterations take?

                      Oooh!
                       

                      I just thought of a question, are you ladies buying your bridesmaid's their jewelry? If so, where have you been successful in finding something?

                       

                       

                      :)
