Toronto Newbie!

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I'm very excited to have found this forum!!  I'm feeling overwhelmed but optimistic about our destination wedding.  We just got engaged at Christmas, so it won't happen until spring 2012.  I still wanted to get the ball rolling!!  Jamaica seems to be our front runner.  Any tips or suggestions are greatly appreciated! 

Melissa

Congrats!!! great website and forum to belong to, these brides are amazing!!!! If your wanting jamaica I would suggest Sandals Dunns River or Riu Ochos Rios or Sandals Ochos Rios. Sandals resorts are amazing, my opinion we stayed at one a couple of years ago and loved every minute of it and the weddings we saw were incredible

Welcome and Congrats!!!  I'm a Jamaica bride myself and there are many wonderful resorts to choose from!  I'm working with destinationweddings.com for all my travel arrangements and they have been great!  To help narrow, I would focus on cost (of course!) and if it's adults only or need family friendly.  Good luck!!!

Congrats!  I originally had Jamaica as a front runner as well (most flights available from Canada, and everyday from Toronto I think!) and if you will have kids going to your wedding, I have family members who went to Beaches Negril and thought it was great, especially for families.  I decided on Dominican Republic as it was more affordable for our guests.  Good Luck with your planning !!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
