Hey Krysta,

I'm in the same boat! Payment is due end of September for our April wedding. At the end of the day, it's out of your control now :) If they can go, they'll find a way, and if they can't, a couple of months probably wouldn't have made a difference. And who knows, maybe at the last minute you'll get more bookings.  It is what it is! I have no idea who's going to end up coming, and while I'm hoping everyone can, I know they can't and so I've decided to just wait and see, which is a challenge for me because I'm a planner!! :)

Hey Am!

So I was looking for inspiration and found this pic I thought might help you with your red/turquoise dilemma. I'm a fuscia/other shades of pink girl myself and i'm using pink lanterns to hang in the aisle. red turquoise.jpg

I was looking at photos of past ceremonies at my resort and if you hung the starfish garland vertically on the gazeba or chubbah?..it would look pretty..maybe three hung. I am going to order more sugar starfish on Ebay and put some on the front of the gazebo with turquoise tulle. I may also put a starfish on each chair with the turquoise chair ties.

 

What do you think about using fake rose petals? The hotel is charging a crazy amount for them and I was thinking of getting the fake turquoise petals to line each side of the aisle...I am making red fabric pomanders, was going to hang one on the end of each row of chairs, but now thinking it may be too much if I use chair sashes that are turquoise. Do you have any thoughts? I have looked at lots of photos but a bit frustrated on how to incorporate both of our colors, red and turquoise...

I couldn't either... sadly I took a picture of my monitor! lol! I did it in power point and then couldn't upload the document for some reason so had to take a pic of my screen! That's why it looks so bad, but at least I feel like I'm starting to figure out my vision :)

Hi Natalie,

I am in the same predicament. I had bought the plastic tumblers but after thinking about it and my FI asking me where I was going to put them...lol...I plan on taking them all back and getting just travel mugs for the wedding party. I looked at the bubba mugs site today too...I need to figure out the cost. They bigger ones are on sale right now at Canadian Tire for 7.50 I think. The smaller and thinner ones are 10$...those are the ones I want ...how much did one mug work out to being? The only thing is that they don't have a lot of colors...Have you tried Ebay?

 

Tori made a good point, some people may bring them home with them and some won't...I would like to think if it's a bubba mug they would. It depends on your guests.

Canadian Tire has nice thermal coffee mugs with different metallic colours on sale for 5$. They have my colors, red and turquoise but I think they had green and purple and possibly place. What are your colors or does it matter? Anyway, let me know how great the deal was. I did look at Walmart but they only had imitation bubba mugs and not as nice.

The price does come out to be a bit cheaper...They have the mini ones (20oz) with the skinny bottom so they would fit in car holders...or the chunky original ones...also they have ones with or without handles...I don't really care about the color of them but was thinking purple for the ladies and black for the men.......HELP!! Thx in advance:):)

Hi Krysta,

Which travel company is your package through? Air Canada, Westjet?

I am in the same position as the other brides. We are leaving Jan 1. and we don't have to pay in full until November. But, if you want to get the deal and save a fair chunk of change, you have to pay in full by Sept.15. Before you talk to your TA, maybe double check online if you can the policies with the company...it is usually them that dictate the payment not the Travel Agency..And like the other girls said, remind the TA how many people may cancel if she can't help you out... Good luck!

    • 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!
