Where are my Edmonton, AB ladies at?

Recommended Posts

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!

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?

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
