Honestly, She is absolutely amazing and has gone above and beyond our expectations. This entire process has been a breeze. I didn't settle on an agent for 3 weeks and it was really frustrating. The different quotes I was receiving was astonishing. I went with Vanessa not only because she worked to get us fantastic rates, but also because I would email her and she would respond instantly. She did the same with my finicky guests and has a lot of experience with wedding bookings. I'm in Edmonton and my guests are all over and she has been so organized. I'm sure everyone will probably recommend their TAs now and flip you info and you should definitely look into them all. You will know instantly who you want working with your group. I hope this helps. I was in the same boat you are when I began this whole process but I learned a lot. :)

I'll be contacting her as well! I'm also from Edmonton, and so far I haven't found a great TA with rates I can work with. Thanks so much for the info! :)

    Hi ladies,

     

    I like in Ontario in the Milton area and work in Mississauga. Looking for your help on finding an inexpensive place to get my dress cleaned. I plan on selling it online since I have no use for it anymore. Any suggestions as to where I can sell? And also clean the dress?

     

    Thanks!

      I purchased my dress from preownedweddingdresses.com/.com. I also searched on kijiji, but found the best selection on preowned. I've seen a bunch of groupons for gown cleaning lately. I'm in Edmonton, but wouldn't be surprised if there were also some in Toronto.

          Okay, gave her a call because my TA wasn't answering my e-mail (and still hasn't...)
          She is AMAZING. Gets back to you SO quickly, and updates you along the way. Can't recommend Vanessa enough!! Thanks pokeyholly!

          I bought my dress on preownedweddingdresses.com too! It was a great experience, and was happy to get a designer dress at half the price.


          Are you interested in an affordable decor rental in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico? Send me a message! Most of the items I have are a rustic, vintage style.

            Hey! I was just married in Cabo at the Riu Palace in May! It was amazing and you have picked an aweomse destination! I would first start making a list of your priorities for you wedding, location for ceremony and reception (private vs. semi-private), etc. Then look into resorts, and consider what your budget and guest budget is. I wanted to keep it below $1900 for a week. I compared resorts, some offer transportation to and from the airport, some do not offer room serivce everyday and I wanted the resort to be big but not too big that you required a golf cart to get around. I then narrowed the search by comparing their wedding packages.

            Here are some of our photos http://www.cassiesca...g-photographer/

            and our wedding video:http://vimeo.com/69731511

            Happy Planning!!

              Hi there...not many brides getting married in Cuba but there are some forums here...search Cuba and they'll pop up....I'm getting married in Varadero, Cuba on Nov 20, 2013...I joined this forum last November...I can't believe how quickly time has flown by. 

               

              Where are you getting married in Cuba? 

               

              I live just north of Cobourg.  Feel free to PM with any questions that you have.   Happy Planning!

                Does anyone know of places in Ontario that create custom bouquets with a mixture of silk/Real Touch flowers and seashells? I've found a couple on Etsy, but they aren't exactly what I'm looking for, and I'd like to avoid the high shipping fees if possible.
