On a happier note, I found these at dollarama today: CHEAP self adhesive badge covers for DIY luggage tags. 8 for $1. I put these together sloppily, but am confident they would look very good if you took care in doing them.

Not sure if you have looked into working with a travel agent. But we have people coming from 5 different locations. We got a group rate. I am not exactly sure how it worked, but our TA just requested the prices from other gateways. We only have about 15 people coming, so it worked out and we still got the 11th free offer.

Change of topic, but what your mom's doing for their dresses? My mom and I can't seem to find anything decent, and when I do hear of something it's usually a matter of the purchase was made in the States.  Any suggestions?

Donno what your mom's budget is, but I just went to Cerulean boutique in St. Albert with my mom and they had some very VERY nice stuff. But also Very expensive. $200-500 range. They get everything right from New York and it's all really lovely. They carry resort-wear all year long too.

 

My mom has an amazing dress collection, I'll pick her brain tonight about where she gets them in Edmonton.

Im having the same problem with my mom and I get more and more worried as the summer gets closer to ending, seeing as all the fall stuff is already out.  I actually get upset with my mom because she looked for one day and tried on a bunch of dresses and didnt find any, but its only by my sisters urging that she even went out to find anything.  Me and my sister went shopping and picked up some stuff for her to try on and that was a bust. Ive ordered dresses online that was a bust.  She to be honest doesnt even seem to care, and its about the only thing she has to do for this wedding is find her self an outfit and that seems to be a big hassle for her.  Its not like there is going to be a lot of a choice in a month.

I know how you feel, my Mom's been the same way (difficult) about most everything wedding-related.

What worked for me was to go shopping with her and buy something small for the trip (a beach bag, flip flops, a hat or something like that) it was only then that she started to get a little into it and was an easier transition into the harder purchases like the wedding outfit and bathing suit (that was the worst, but I can relate).

Hope this helps

Not sure what your mom's budget is, but my mom got her dress from Storybook Weddings (in PG). She paid around $300 and they altered it, including making straps. She is very happy with it! It took some time to be made, but if you have time to spare, check it out!

Also having this same problem. My mom has no idea what to wear and of course it doesnt help that shes a larger woman and short so finding something shes happy with is difficult.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
