FRUGAL BRIDES - FOUND A NEW WEBSITE

So my thought upon seeing them is that they look much nicer and bigger in the picture. I decided I am just going to wait for the dollar tree to start selling their beach bags again. These bags aren't as beachy as I would like. Have you seen them yet? If so, what did you think?

I got them a few weeks ago. I liked the fact that they were able to be folded up and put in a purse and/or glove compartment...or into our guests luggage. We loved the colors and you can't go wrong with the price. We love them.

Very true about the compactness! And the price is great! Maybe I wasn't so thrilled with them in the store bc they were all crumpled from people opening them.

For some reason it won't let me quote your response correctly. Have you received his suit yet? How is the quality of it? My FI also hates to be too hot and uncomfortable so I'd like to minimize that for him if possible....in a good looking suit.

Are there any wild and crazy deals to be found North of the border for the Canadian Brides? I know online is accessible everywhere, but sometimes shipping and customs can ding us :(

I believe they have a whole Canada Brides Forum with the "how to's" and "don'ts". I'd just look up "Canada Brides" in the top BDW search bar. Good Luck!

Yeah it's very nice, light weight.  It isn't scratchy or anything, pretty much what you'd expect from a typical summer weight suit, only this one is wicking. Todd really likes his, he also got the stays cool white dress shirt.  Now, obviously it hasn't been field tested yet, so I can't speak from experience.  Our wedding is May 25th, so I can tell you after he's worn it on the day of.  I don't want to risk something happening to it before hand, and I figured it's got to be better than a standard suit, and at 70% off we couldn't really argue. 

 

here's the link to the one he bought

http://www.josbank.com/menswear/shop/Product_11001_10050_372007

and then he bought this vest, it's about as close as we're going to get to a match.  The color is spot on, but the tooth is slightly different, but nothing noticeable from a distance.

    • 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!
