    Welcome to all the newbies! I remember how exciting it was to start on this journey a year ago...I was so pumped and couldn't fill my head with enough ideas and information. My wedding is in 2 1/2 weeks and so I am pretty much done. I'm not sure how to "bump" an old thread so thought I would just post a few comments/suggestions based on my experience to help make your planning somewhat easier.

     

    1) First off there are all sorts of fabulous templates on this site which you can't access unless you submit XX number of postings. I by passed that all togethe and put out the $30 ?? right way so I could have immediate access (no, I don't work for this site LOL).

    2) Sign up with Michaels and Vistaprint to get on their mailing lists for special offers....you'll be amazed at the savings if you plan it right.

    3) Keep an eye on Etsy and Ebay...lots of great stuff come up on there.

    4) If you have to order something in bulk for from the US---try and see if you can get a couple of ladies to go in with you on certain items...savings are good!

     

    Enjoy exploring this site ladies....you will have a blast.

      Ahhhh finally someone from the West!  It seems like everyone is from the East and is getting married in Jamaica.  We plan on eloping next fall so it looks like it will have to be somewhere in the Pacific, Fiji, Cook Islands, Bora Bora or Maui! 

       

      Lasallebae, where are you getting married?  Any helpful hints on picking a destination? 

       

      Argh I wish it's was such a run around in Thialand to get married!  We are off to South East Asia after Christmas and we could kill two birds with one stone

        Why not do a symbolic ceremony and do a legal canadian marriage!  No one needs to know and you get the tropical wedding without all the legal run around

          We're out west too - southern Alberta. We are still going to the Dominican though - it is just a stop over in Toronto. Go where you want!
