Canadian Brides!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts


My husband and GM just wore black linen pants, dress shirts and vests to stay cool (no suit jackets) they looked very good and we bought them at Le Chateau at the end of summer for a great price!

So it seems all of the FI's are wearing suits?! My FI is just wearing a white Guayabera shirt, and either white, or ligtan linen pants.. ( we bought one pair of each and he can decide later.. as it makes no difference to me.. whichever he prefers and feels most comfy in). and then the groomsman are in tan linen pants and then a guayabera shirt in turquoise blue.

 

I figured us bein canadian and used to the cool weather that suits might be just too dman hot for them! hahaha and we wanted to keep it simple lol

Welcome temporary Canuck!! What brings you to Montreal for so long? Hopefully you can get some of your friends or family back home to do some shopping for you too as you'll find everything in Canada is more expensive...or at least it seems that way!

I don't know where to get anything here so thanks Torilynn for starting this thread. At least now I know the names of a few clothing stores.

I heard of this too before I went to Cancun last November, but then I totally forgot to get my receipts in order. Good news is they only checked a few of our guests bags and they didn't have a problem with any of our decor items or anything at all really(I had split things among my family members for the luggage weight issue).  I think they are looking for people bringing in big quantities of items to resell in Mexico illegally so wedding groups aren't really their targets! Hope this helps you :)

I've heard and read through a few forums saying when you go through customs in Mexico you need to have receipts for all wedding items and that there's a max dollar amount. Do any of you know the actual dollar amount?  Also, does is work on a per person basis? For example if I exceed the amount I'd probably have my MOH or Mom be responsible for the other items. Do you think that would work?

Yes...before driving an hour to the service station and another hour back, I made sure that it was there!  They were really good...not sure who found it, but they locked it up in their safe overnight.  I didn't have any money in it...I've been too busy spending my cash on OOT bag stuff at Dollarama ; )

 

Actually, I didn't even realize I left it there until 10:30 last night when I went to place an online order for OOT stuff and needed my credit card...geez, between the heat and this wedding my brain is fried.

 

I noticed Shoppers has Tide to Go pens on sale for $2.99 this week...I chatted with my mom (coupon queen!) today and she has 4 coupons for $1 off.  Even better...$1.99 a piece!

 

If we were to start a coupon/discount thread for Canadian brides, can the person who starts the thread go in and delete any old/expired entries?  I think that would be kinda important...

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
