Hi Canadian Brides,

 

I'm looking for some advice on where to buy men's linen pants and dress shirts.  I went to the obvious choice ... Tommy Bahama ... and of course I fell in love with an outfit, but it is waaaaay too much money for our budget.  I'm talkin' $300 for each groomsmen.  I can't ask them to spend that much.  So, I'm looking for other ideas?  I know we are also limited in terms of the time of year to buy this kind of thing due to our seasons, so I'm getting antzy.  We are getting married next May and I don't want to leave it to the last minute!

I found some linen items at Le Chateau when we were looking. I'm from Edmonton and a few mens stores here had them like Colony Clothing in West Edmonton Mall.

i didnt end  up having to pay any extras for anyone over the 10 ppl. i just asked about why we are paying 10.50 pp (i did free package) and when the answer was lame (for extra cake and champagne -- which i didnt need and then they said for chair rentals -- WTH ummm no they are already there) so she ended up charging me nothing.

 

also i refused to pay $550 for the steel drum band and she told me with the free package a dj for the ceremony is included!!

Check out Old Navy. We bought FI's and his best man's shirt there in the spring, and FI's dad got linen pants there too. Not sure what they have now, but FI has worn the linen pants in Mexico before in July, and was perfectly comfortable. And you cannot beat the price!

    • 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?
