Murmel!

 

Thank you sooo much for your recommendations re: suits.

The FI and I are going to be in Toronto in August so we are going to look around at the Harry Rosen Outlet in Heartland and then head over to Square One.

That's so exciting! There are tons of places for you to try here! There is also the Vaughan Mills mall, we saw a few up there. Good luck and let me know if I can help in any way :)

Tara, I pretty much do nothing but think about flowers!!!!! I'm even boring myself now! I love orchids, but i know they're really expensive, thought about taking some fake ones with us, but like i said above, no room! I know i want pink purple and white, reckon i'm just going to have to chill out for the next 5 1/2 months and see when i get there!
I'm completely obsessed with flowers too !! Haha. I have over 15 centerpieces, 20 bridal bouquets, tons of BM bouquets, bouts all saved to my favorites on my computer LOL. I'm bringing them down w me to our site visit this coming Mon to show the florist so I can find out what's avail and what's not.

You should be able to communicate with tour WC through email prior to if you don't want to wait until the week of your wedding to pick things out!

And really if flowers are important to you I'd just go for real orchids, they're not that much more expensive than silk. You probably have your bouquet included in your wedding package I'm assuming, and they'd just charge you a nominal upgrade charge to do orchids or other "premium" flowers.

I've found that flowers in Mexico are really cheap, at least compared to the States. Now, photographers, hair & makeup, notsomuch hehe

Love the bouquet charms. Where did you find those? My dad passed away 11 years ago, and I would love to have something to represent him. I had not really figured out how to work him in yet. Although I know we will have one of the BM or GM do a toast for those that can't make it, but are with us in spirit.
Sorry for the late reply, but just saw this post and thought I'd mention a few remembrance ideas I've seen at past weddings.

I went to a wedding ceremony on the beach in Maui where the bride had recently lost her father. What she did was leave an open seat in the front row with his favorite flower on it. I thought that was very sweet. You might even place a photo of your dad on the seat as well.

Another wedding I attended the groom lost his mom about ten years ago, and before he did the mother/son dance with his aunt, he went over and kissed a photo of his mother that was set up next to the head table.

Oh I so wish I could do a site visit before the actual wedding but its just too far to fly (from London)- at least I have been to the hotel before and my wedding isnt until I have already been out there for 10 days!

How's everyone's planning coming along? I feel like I don't really have to do anything right now and it feels good! My dress came in this week so I have to go in and try it on...very exciting :)

Right now I have behind. Have not managed to do much wedding stuff lately. Busy trying to finish renovations on my old place so I can sell it (moved in with FI, and would love to not have to pay the mortgage anymore) Hopefully it will be ready for sale at the end of the week, and then I can go back to wedding planning.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
