Dazey, where are you moving to in Ontario? I am in London!
Lol not that far into Ontario. Northwestern. Red lake. Small town living here I come! Haha. Luckily Winnipeg is only a 5.5 hour drive away so I'm not too far from my friends and family.

Hey may brides!!!! I'm looking for some opinions. Been working on my table numbers tonight. Bought some cheap $1 frames from dollarama and did an antiquing technique. Now I'm trying to decided how to do the actual numbers. Option 1. Purple background. The numbers would be in white cardstock (the same cardstock as option 2) 400 Option 2. White cardstock background with purple cardstock numbers (same purple cardstock as option 1) 400 Or if you have other suggestions. Sorry about the lighting. Taking pics at night in my apartment is horrible.

I wanted to do these embroidered handkerchiefs I saw on etsy with a special message for each. I'd give it to them at the rehearsal dinner or on the morning of the wedding when I see them,

I like option 2. Is it just me or does the paper have a pearlized effect to it? The frames are so cute too.

I won't quote the photos again but I third option 2! How are you doing your numbers, cutting them out yourself or buying the numbers already cut?

I like the white with purple - I think it's easier to read.

Hey Ladies! Has anyone ever listened to this song: Philip Phillips: Gone? He was on American Idol last night and performed it and I fell in love with it! The lyrics are perfect, I want to use it in the wedding but am unsure where at the moment. Is anyone else having problems coming up with ceremony music? I have our sand ceremony music and recessional but I have no clue what the bridal party or I will walk out to. We only have 13 guests in the seats so it's not like I can use a normal length song for these spots. Has anyone just picked out a spot in a song they wanted played during that time frame? Would love to know what you all have planned music wise for ceremony :)

    • Congratulations to Wedding Planners and Families of Bride and Groom. Cheapfaremart, an Orlando based Online Travel Agency offers Cheap Group Flights for Wedding Group also.
    • Thanks! I would love to get quotes from a TA but as I said I have a hard time finding a specialized one in Canada. I hope someone can point me to the right direction. 
    • The use of TA is instrumental in booking a destination wedding for several reasons: Namely, TAs have special rates and promos they can offer you, including perks of complimentary rooms and upgrades. Wright Travel actually has a Bride & Groom Fly Free Promo, which gives couples up to $1,000 cash back. These are perks you can take advantage of by working with a TA. Also, most agencies also do not charge any service fee, so you are essentially having the expertise and convenience of a travel agent without paying a dime. Experienced agents will also have valuable insight into the best property to host your wedding, and if they are familiar with your resort, they can also offer you and your guests tips on how to make your stay even better. Good TAs will also have close connections wiht the wedding department, essentially benefiting you throughout the planning process. Securing a room block is also important to ensure your resort does not run out of rooms and also to secure a group rate. Lastly, having a travel agent handle you and your guests travel plans is vital so that you don't have to deal with it. Anything can happen when it comes to travel and if you don't have an agent, your guests will turn to you for help. As a former destination wedding bride, I did not work with a TA and I regretted it. Having to answer a million questions from guests on where to stay, where to book, where to go, drove me nuts. When it comes down to the final stretch of the wedding, it was the last thing I wanted to do when I already had a million things on my plate wedding wise.  Here's a more in depth article regarding the benefits of using a TA.  https://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wedding-tips/c/planning/10-reasons-why-you-should-use-wright-travel-agency-for-your-destination-wedding-r2439/  
    • We actually did our legal wedding at home -- a quick and easy ceremony at the local courthouse about a week before our destination wedding. Afterwards, we just went to lunch and shared a few celebratory cocktails 😊We did this so we didn't have to deal with the legal requirements (arriving early, blood test, etc.) you must abide by in Mexico. For us it worked out perfectly and our ceremony in Mexico was our official wedding with all our family and friends. 
    • Hi there, So I read a lot of you recommended to go through a TA rather than booking things yourself so I tried to reach out but haven't really been successful. I wrote to Wright Travel not realizing that they were only serving the US. So all I really need is actually the booking of the hotel and the wedding arrangements. Most of our guests will stay at that hotel but I know some of them will probably look for other options. Our guests will arrange their own flights as they are coming from different countries (Canada and Europe) and I don't see group flights coming together as they will all stay different length of time. So my questions are, why exactly would I need a travel agency to book the hotel and the wedding? I worked in event management for years and have organised events way bigger than that and could probably organise it myself. If we decide to go with a TA, does anyone have any recommendation for a Canadian TA? Thanks all!
