Hey Laurelyn! I am so glad your BYR purchases worked out.  I just got an email from them yesterday that my order was cancelled!  I ordered the one shoulder white cocktail dress.  Kinda of dissappointed after receiving several emails that my order was on track to be shipped.   ooooh well, I guess the hunt continues!

 

PS. Canadian tire has BUBBA MUGS coming up on sale for $5.99 at canadian tire, the 20oz ones!  It starts Sept 10th!  I am soooo torn, its too early to know how many I will need for guests, and FI only wants to get them for the groomsmen and bridesmaids, he doesnt think people will want them....  OH the agonizing decisions! BangHead.gif haha

I am not sure if the bride is on this thread but if you check out the "frustrated, where to find mugs in canada" thread there is at least one other bride who had purchased from factory 21 and she has also posted pictures!!!

 

I have heard nothing but great things about them, but if you don't get your answer in this thread definitely check out the other because I remember this being discussed!!!!

Excellent! Glad it turned out well. My BTR orders have been hit and miss... More hit than miss. Which dress did you go with again? I'd love to see it!

I'm also ordering from here. I am just waiting for our final numbers. It seems like they only do orders of 50 or 100, and I think we might be over 50 but its gonna be close! Our deadline for RSVPs is Oct 1.

This is off topic but I'm a little peeved so I wanted to share...

 

We sent out our formal invites in July with a RSVP date of Sept 24 (our deadline for deposits is Oct1 - wanted the week cushion to make sure I could touch base with people who RSVPd yes and who haven't put down a deposit). Our invites our passport invites with a boarding pass postcard RSVP, so I suppose it is a little untraditional, but it is still an RSVP with a stamp, which would make one believe that it needs to be returned!

I was talking with a girlfriend yesterday who I assumed wasn't coming, but I invited her anyway because she would have come if it were at home. She said that she didn't think she had to RSVP to me, she figured if she just didn't book with the TA then it would be obvious that she wasn't coming. At this point, we have only received about 1/3 of our RSVPs in the mail. I know lots of people - including myself - often wait until the last minute to send those bacl, but now I am wondering if people know they are supposed to send them?! My mom said my aunt thought that the postcard was part of the "decoration" of the card. WTF?! There is a stamp for god's sake!

Anyone else experience something like this? I was going to reach out to the people I hadn't heard from after the RSVP date, but now I'm wondering if I should even bother...

Manda...I would get in touch with the ones that didn't RSVP by the date you chose.  I had to do the same with some of my guests because I guess some people don't know they have to RSVP (frustrating I know!).  They were like "oh I didn't think I had to RSVP and that I could just book last minute..." 

 

I had a final date for the group deposit and whoever didn't give their deposit to our TA by that date wouldn't get the group discount and would have to book on their own.  This only happened to one couple.  Luckily everyone else payed their deposit on time and could benefit from the group discount!

 

Good luck!

    • 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.
