2012 Brides - Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


We are getting married on Valentine's Day 2012 at the Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas.  We have about 21 people booked to join us, and I imagine we'll get a few stragglers signing up once the crappy weather sets in. We booked our travel and set up our group rate through Sue Stiliades at itravel2000.com.  She is the group/wedding coordinator and is fantastic. We've had absolutely no issues, and she got us a great rate for our guests.


Anyone else out there getting married at the Palace in Cabo?

Anyone interested in a "Custom Made Wedding Website" ... let me know.  I made one for myself and then started to make them for other brides that are having destination weddings. :)


The website could be similar to this http://WWW.DEVONANDTABBY.COM or anyway you like.  I am very flexible and can really create anything you want.  


I started this for myself because I HATED the wedding websites that were out on the market and especially the free ones and just made my own... 


You can create your own:



Pick your own Music or Play List

Have tons of pages

Pick from tons of colors, patterns, looks etc... basically WHATEVER YOU ENVISION! :)

Endless albums

Any design you want on any page

Basically ... your wish is my command! YAY!

Prices are from $199 - $499 depending on how many changes and pictures etc.... :)


Let me know ...

I'M A 2012 BRIDE!!!!  Our date is September 1, 2012 at Secrets Royal Beach in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.  I must say, this wedding planning stuff is OVERWHELMING but SO VERY WORTH THE FUSS that comes with it.  So far we have almost 20 people booked and we have a lot more folks who plan to book. I created a design for our STD but I only ordered one so I can see what it looks like.  PRAYERFULLY we will love it & then order more.  We've got our photographer that we are bringing with us (www.hillaryferguson.com) and our videographer (www.videopuntacana.com) .  I can't wait to go to Punta Cana! It's going to be SOO much fun!!!

Hi 2012 brides! I am getting married in Winter 2012 but am still waiting for the travel agent to come back with rates and packages for guests from across Canada. Because I wanted to be sure that I gave everyone one year's notice, we sent out "Quick Wedding Update" emails last week. We did this even before we sent the Save the Dates bc we didn't want to wait another month or so to pick that, when a lot of people will need to start saving and plannign vacation time etc. I've seen a bunch of people ask questions about that, so I've pasted the email we sent in case it is helpful. We have had so many (way more than expected) write back and say how grateful they were to get the advance notice and are very excited to go away to share our special day. ...Next up - pick our date and location.  


Hello everyone,

We hope you are all doing well. It has been just over a month since our engagement and we've been happily planning the next stage of our life together! Michaela and I are excited to announce that we will be having a Destination Wedding and we would really love to have you with us for this special moment.


With friends and family reaching from Nova Scotia to Vancouver Island, we are considering central, sunny locations that offer the best possible rates and ultimate destination experience for our guests. 


We are not quite ready to send out "Save the Date" cards, however we do want to give you a heads up that we're in the process of looking for the perfect family-friendly tropical resort for a late-November to early-December 2012 or mid-January to mid-February 2013 wedding.


Once we have picked a resort and location we will send you all the information to help you decide if you can join us.  There will be a deposit required to book your trip, which is why we wanted to let you know early. All of this info should be coming in the next one to two months. We know you will have questions and we will provide all details as soon as possible.


We truly want this to be a fabulous vacation for everyone and hope to celebrate in the sun with you!


With love,

  Michaela & Scott

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
