May 2011 Brides!

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I am getting married May 13, 2011 at Moon Palace.  After looking at all of your post, I'm starting to feel like I'm way behind in planning.  I picked out my dress, but that's about all I've done so far.  Guess I better get on the ball.7735.jpg

Hi Kelsey, hope you've been doing well  =)

 

i love the letter carrier, but it's no longer a secret and is crazy busy on the weekends, but so worth it to take advantage of those special offers only valid in the US.

....hmmm...i once got taxed coming back at PR for under $100 worth of stuff, just my luck that day i guess. there's also hagens of blaine on the peace arch side which would be handy if you're on your way to seattle or something.

 

looks like time for more shopping....

re:  this...  I've actually heard that the place in point roberts (called lettercarrier) is great!  A friend of mine swears by it.  She said you usually only get hit up for tax if it's over a few hundred dollars in value (otherwise rarely worth the paperwork for them)  and it's only the HST tax you have to pay... not brokerage fees or duty or anything.

 

I got taxed on my wedding dress bringing it back  (boo)  but I figured, had I bought it here I'd still be paying that 12% anyways AND it probably would've cost more too.  So it wasn't so bad.

 

anyways, just my input on the cross border mail stuff.  Yes, the might tax you.  But if you factor it into the price it still might be worth it.  and its DEFINITELY cheaper than having it delivered and having to pay brokerage on top of everything.

 

Hope your planning is going smoothly ladies.  I'm not on this thread too often but it's exciting to see everyone's checking things off their lists

That's great! Love Leslie, we booked her for our "secret legal day"/at home reception day, May 7 so looks like she'll be flying out shortly after. We booked our engagement session for early November. We were originally thinking Feb. next year, but thought it would be nice to take them around the same time as we got engaged last year....will be chilly, but an excuse to buy a pretty sweater  =)

Are you getting Leslie to do your engagement photos?? We still haven't had ours done yet either. I was hoping to get them done this summer but time just got away from us.. I cannot believe it is already October!! Leslie is flying to Mexico for our wedding on the 8th... so the day after your at home reception!! I'm obsessed with her blog.. i swear her photography gets better and better with every wedding she shoots!

I'll look into PR as well!  I think Blaine would probably be about the same driving distance for me and would give me a good excuse to do some shopping!!

The stuff I want to order online is chair sashes, lanterns, tulle... all the decoration type things! However, if these $5 mail boxes actually work out I could def see myself using it for A LOT of other things as well!!

 

 

Quick question for you ladies... I remember us talking about a minister who will do legal ceremonies in her backyard. Could you give me her contact. We've decided to get married legally at home first and do the symbolic ceremony in Mexico. To get legally married in Canada do we need witnesses?.... I want to keep it as secret as possible!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
