Congrats and happy planning!!!

 

 

 

 

Have fun on your trip! Will definitely be looking out for your article upon your return :)

This is posted under the Get Together thread but since it would be most beneficial to Newbies I thought I would post it here as well. 

 

Any Alberta brides interested in a Get Together?  I am planning an informational night for any brides interested in coming out, meeting other brides in your area, sharing ideas, a glass of wine and your wedding plans.  Depending on the amount of people interested we could have some Resort Representatives join us and do a presentation on weddings at different resorts.  If you would like to join us please let me know what city and area you are in and I will keep you posted.

Happy Planning!!!

Philanab- Thanks for the great tip! Our colors are orange and purple, but I will definately have to check these out. I never thought about getting themed stamps, but I think it's a great idea. I get a little obsessed on the little details sometimes.


 

How is everyone's planning going? We have booked a group rate at Riu Ocho Rios for our hotel, but that is it.

 

Tkuzma- Have you made any progress on starting your planning?

I was so excited to find these because the flowers look tropical and are pretty fuchsia and orange colours, which are my wedding colors. I'm going to stock up because my STDs are going out soon. These can be purchased online or at the post office

Sometimes I feel like I've made good progress, and other times I'm beyond stressed that there's so much to do so I've not yet

done enough.

 

I've got my ceremony and reception locations booked with deposits down.  Website made and STDs out. Photographer booked. I know what I want for centerpieces, but it's a work in progress.  That's about it...

 

A huge stressor for me right now is actually my guests.  On my STDs, I wrote the link to our website on which clearly states that if you want to go with the negotiated group rate, you must put down a $350 deposit by May 12 (actually it's June 6, but I know how people leave things last minute!); unfortunately, it's the majority of my friends who seem to have completely glossed over the fact that there's a website, which I keep stressing contains time-sensitive information.  Argh! Oh well, I guess I can't stress myself over whether everyone else can get themselves organized or not...BangHead.gif

tkuzma- I am totally with you. I have asked our guests to RSVP on our website, but only 2 have so far and it is my FFIL and his ex-wife (separately, which is kind of funny. Long story about why they are both invited). I am hoping to send out the invitations in July for our February Wedding and hopefully people will be more on the ball about booking. Our travel agent/wedding planner is not local, so I think this may be keeping people from contacting her to book (I hope not). She (the wedding planner) is also away in Jamaica right now and has not replied to my emails, so perhaps she is unavailble if people are calling her.

 

Sounds like you have a lot booked already! Good job! I also feel like you and want to get things rolling asap.

Argh, why do people like to leave things to the very last minute?

 

I have an exam to write today, but after that I want to kick up wedding planning up a notch.  By the by, I'll be in Manitoba this weekend, so I'll wave to you when I'm in Winnipeg :)

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
