QUESTION LADIES:

 

For the women who have done their wire transfer, do you mind me asking did you do it through your own bank or through your travel agent?  My WC is asking to do this through my travel agent which we are ok we just have to pay a fee.  We are still trying to contact our own bank to see how much the fees will be.  Also, how much were the fees (if you had any)?  It's just confusing since the first WC said we would do the transfer and my new WC is now saying I have to do it through my travel agent. 

 

Thank you in advance :)

Strange that your WC (i'm assuming you mean the BBPD WC) cares who it comes from. I wouldn't think it matters as long as they get their money. My bank (Wells Fargo) charged us $35 for the wire transfer.

llewald and tricia-m - I sent an email with the picture of the included centerpiece.

 

Tricia-m - we did the transfer for our deposit through our travel agent as she was the one working to set everything up with the resort and get our wedding booked.  There was no extra fee for that but we had paid her to take care of all the wedding set up and group travel bookings.  

 

SoonMrsD - could you send me the list of extras please too!  My email is sammie_s2@hotmail.com

 

Sent! 

 

why did you have to pay your travel agent? Who are you using, if you don't mind me asking?

Do any of you ladies know if they offer any other type of musical entertainment such as a small band?  My family loves to dance "tipico" and maybe they have a tipico band that can play a set or 2. 
I think they offer a band or even belly dancers, and other forms of entertainment for reception. I think I saw t on the price list spreadsheet.

We paid our travel agent because she is a destination wedding specialist so on top of all the group travel booking she organized all the beginning wedding details!  She finalized the date and time, all the judge info, everything so that I didn't have to be going back and forth with the resort wedding coordinator.  She did way more than just booking flights and rooms for everyone.  She also had so many ideas for the wedding itself and really worked to make things happen for us (we rented the Presidential suite for our reception (an idea we had heard from her) and then was able to get the two night minimum waived for us so we only had to pay for the night of our wedding!!!  We worked with Tanja Walsh out of Calgary.  Best money my fiance and I could have spent on our wedding.  I didn't have any contact with the resort up until last week (as we are now less than 3 months away from the wedding date).  With lots of the comments that I have read on here about coordinators taking so long to get back to people, I'm happy that I didn't have to do all that running around.

That's awesome, well since I speak Spanish I just call my WC directly and try to hash out details on the phone or through email and she responds usually within 24hours so for now I'm ok. I'm all about not paying extra costs because apparently there's always extra prices thrown in and I'm not having it haha.

 

Can't wait until you share your special day with us!

I wanted to do that one too, but after SoonMrsD sent me the price list, I'm not considering it as much.  Looks kinda pricey!, Your wedding is way before mine, if you do it, please post pics :-)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
