    No Michaels! That's crazy, Ottawa should definitely have one. If not any craft store should have the stuff you're looking for, even walmart should have some it in their scrapbooking section.

      We don't have a Michaels here, but i was thinking of going to either buy online (only problem i the shipping costs) or go to the states, actually i should check if Ottawa has any as that is really close. Just a quick question how do you get your 40% coupons?

      Thanks!

       

      I looked on the Michaels website and they have 5 locations in Ottawa. To get the coupons just go to their website find your Ottawa location and click "Michaels weekly add" It will be on the side and you can click the coupons you want and print them! This week they have a 50% off one item and 15% off entire purchase INCLUDING sale items!. Here is the link to the website for this week http://weeklyad.mich...m/?storeId=3505

        You are my life saver tonight, i'll contact Ruth and see if she can give me a similar price. I have a lot of people coming from England and Ireland who really don''t know anything about the Caribbeans so i wanted to add a liitle resume of currency etc and what to expect.

         

        From you emblem, are you English? Do you have ant family coming in form England? If so how hard was it for them to find packages?

          It is the Canadian emblem, just altered to fit the destination wedding theme. We used a wedding planner/ travel agent and she has taken care of all of our guests travel needs. I would recommend getting connected with a good travel agent that has experience in destination weddings and can arrange all the travel for you and your guests. The you don't need to worry about finding answers for everyone because that is the TA's job :). We do have family coming from Australia, but everyone else is coming from Canada. Our TA is figuring out the travel arrangements for the guests from Australia.

           

          The TA/ Wedding planner we are working is Ophellia McKnight from Bridal Affair Destinations. She is great and specialises in Jamaican destination weddings. Here is her website http://bridalaffairdestinations.com/

            Do you know if you buy stamps in bulk if it is any cheaper?

            Sosodj, no you still pay per stamp, however Rexall has 5-10% off stamp sales once and a while, but you just get the regular canadian ones.

              Hi everyone! I'm located in Toronto and I am planning a wedding for April 2013. We have been exploring Jamaica a lot and are thinking of maybe the Iberostar Rose Hall, but we are still open and exploring all of our options because we did just start our planning!

               

              Does anyone have any insight as to a good wedding planner/travel agent they are using? I'd like to ensure our group for the wedding has one point of contact in arranging the travel down to where we decide. It would also be a great help to have someone who is reputable and has experience in planning this instead of just a regular travel agent.

               

              Thanks!

                   I am sure I have placed this somewhere else in the thread, but I will recommend her again. Our planner/ travel agent is Ophellia McKnight from Bridal Affaire Destination. She is great to work with and specialises in Jamaican Destination Weddings. She is doing the full wedding planning and travel arrangements for us, but she does split it up as well. She is FULL of information about Jamaica and can offer several different options which I like.

                   

                  You can check out her website at http://bridalaffairdestinations.com/

                   

                  Another plus is that she is based in the Toronto area which is close to you!!! We are using her from afar and there is lots of emailing and phone calls.

                    soonCB – thank you so much for your recommendation! Its great to hear that you can recommend her even when you aren’t based in Toronto. I was really hoping to find someone in the area because I get nervous hearing some of the stories of how long it can take people to reply or how they go MIA once you put a deposit down. So finding someone reliable is very important! (as I’m sure it is for all brides to be!)

                     

                    I will most defenitly reach out to Ophellia and have a chat to see if she’s a good fit for us J

                    Thanks again!!
