      Girls, I also wanted to let you know that I am going to be posting a thread under 'Buy/Sell' in the next few days with a bunch of stuff from my engagement party- some stuff unused. This is going to be the posting (just waiting to create a 'Photobucket' for the pictures). I would love to sell some of it to Vancouver brides to save them the costs of shipping (it is always such a pain for us Canadian girls). Please PM me with your email to let me know if you are interested in anything and I can send you pictures. Thanks!

        Hey Ladies,


        Just getting back from vacation and trying to catch up.  Looking forward to meeting you all on the 15th.  6pm still?  I will be passing on the tour part myself, as I actually have a friend who lives at the Fairmont Pacific Rim (believe it or not) so I've seen the place a LOT.


        Is everyone still planning to meet and chat otherwise beforehand - or is the tour thing taking over as the main focus?  If so, I might pass entirely but am still interested in meeting and chatting weddings if that's not the case.

          I will also be passing on the tour- my honeymoon will be in

          Jamaica so we won't need it! Maybe we should 'bump' the tour a bit later eg 730 for those interested. The rest of us can meet earlier at 6pm. Thoughts??

            maybe it would be a good idea to move the tour a little later - 730 would be good...


            i don't think it would take very long, then maybe those that don't head over to have a look can stay at the coffee shop together and those that do go can re-join afterwards?


            it would be great to get together to "talk shop" with the tour being a side thing for those interested.

                hmmm.......would it be better to do the tour around 730 / 800 then? or forego the tour?

                  I'd still like to do the tour as I'm looking for a hotel to stay at after our legal at home ceremony... so maybe push it back to 7:30 or even 8 if possible? If not, I'm available to do it sooner, say 5 or 5:30 before the meet-up.

                    Hey Everyone,


                    They will accomodate the tour for us at whatever time we want. I defintely don't want this to overtake the meeting, was just a suggestion that I thought might be helpful to some :)  We can still meet at 6pm, and maybe I can get them to come by around 7:30? Just let me know..I don't want to ruin plans!!

                      Hey ladies,


                      I'm also a fellow Vancouver DW bride!  Getting married April 4, 2011 at the Iberostar Laguna Azul in Varadero, Cuba.  


                      Just found this forum amongst this incredible site... So glad I found it!  Didn't even think that their are local brides in the same boat as me.  So cool!!   I will definitely join you all at Giovani's on Sept. 15.  I can do anytime after 5pm for those interested in going early.  I'll probably pass on the hotel tour myself.


                      Looking forward to seeing you all then,
