Tip For Calling Overseas

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,


I don't know what is wrong with me. I should have thought of this MONTHS earlier. I would have saved a couple of hundred dollars to be sure. I have been racking up quite a phone bill calling the Bahamas trying to plan my wedding. Well, it finally occurred to me to just get an international calling card from one of the local "bodegas"..small corner stores....here in NYC. I did this years ago for another purpose and I was able to make many international calls at a fraction of the cost. In any event, I purchased two $5 cards. I just made at least 5 calls on one card just now...only able to speak to two people... and I still have $4.02 cents left!!! Bottom line...when I started, I was told that I could talk just over THREE HOURS to the Bahamas for my lousy $5.


Just wanted to post this in case any other brides like me forgot that it might be cheaper to simply purchase an international calling card from a neighborhood store.

Great idea!! I hadn't thought of that.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
