CONGRATULATIONS upcoming to-be-MRS!!! We wish you all the best, and can't wait to see how everything turns out. I'm sure when you look back there are a few stressful moments, but everything will be worth while on your special day. =)

Thats awesome! We are doing the whole backyard reception too trying to get the deposit down for a tent before we leave and get that big stuff out of the as by the time we get back it will be the second week into May. 

37 people is an amazing number! I was hoping 10 would come and we were lucky and 19 of friends and family are able to come. We also rented a bus but through AboutTown. What day do the people leave from BC ? My sister and her boyfriend is leaving from there on the 22 I believe she has to fly to Toronto then Toronto to Punta Cana. 

 

I can't decide on the centrepeices... We are struggling LOL we were trying to find something cheaper we could do as they are expensive and more money than we really want to pay. We have been going to Michaels and everything but this weekend we will stop at the Hoppy Lobby:P to check out what they have. What are you doing for yours? What do you have in your OOT Bags? 

 

We have put in a activity book with everyone pictures names and a little blurb about them so everyone knows who everyone is and we have puzzles/mazes/searches and each one spells a letter... Whoever can figure out that word will get $100.00 Keg card as something fun for them to do on the plane. We will hand them out on the bus. We also have the first aid kit,aloe, hand sanitizer, Q-Tips, Kleenex and that type of stuff.

We actually have 49 people coming so I think that's a great turnout, :) way more then I expected, especially with the price. About town? I have never heard of that bus company before? How many passengers does it hold? Man we paid like 3700 dollars for a stupid greyhound,I thought i called all of the us company's but guess I was wrong. Our BC guests leav on the 22nd as well and flying to Toronto to catch our 11am flight out. As far as right now I'm not doing centerpeices, I got a quote on there "low" orange and pink flower centerpiece at 88$ per one!! As if. I have 6 tables. So I am renting special "glow tables for 88 a piece instead lol. They are illuminated from underneath. We will probley just end up using the girls bouquets as centerpeices. Look into e real touch calalillies while you are a hobby lobby, there great. FML these OTT bags. I have decided to finally crack down and start assembling these, what a nightmare lol Bag- women's shelter donation bag from Rickis clothing Mug- dollar tree US Survival kit (dollarama- tums, kleenex, moist wipes, (dollar tree US- Advil, hand sanitizer, Indivdual wrapped floss, drink mix, (online- aloe, Laynads with key card holder speciastID.com Playing cards dollarama Wet bathing suit bag Le vie on rose Cute leopard print loofahs dollar tree US Decided not to do Chapstick ppl won't use them and they are a pain to customize. How did you add qtips? Like just loose into the first aid kit or are they wrapped? Im sure I'm missing something. Good idea about the booklets! . I'm doing a welcome card for everyone. I just sent out brochures with all need to know information over the Easter weekend. Now I'm working on the wedding music playlist :eek:

Q-tips you can get them at target or Walmart and they come in a pack of 20 in a clear Q-Tip case. I thought it was super cute and people will probably forget to bring them to clean their ears! LOL:) I just liked the container to be honest. 

 

Ahh the wedding playlist ... I tried so hard to do it and gave up. I decided to pay a DJ $100.00 to put it all on the IPod with the songs plus other recent popular songs so hopefully the playlist will be awesome compared to what I could have done. Lanyards... I've been looking for those, waterproof ones. Maybe I should just get the regular ones. I love the idea of having that for your room key and other random things. 

 

I can't believe how soon it is ... I remember when I was counting down at like 359 days or something and now 13. Seems so far still, but I know its not at all.

The AboutTown was $1800.00 for a 28 person bus they pick us up in Windsor and we pick people up in London and Woodstock along the way. I never heard of them either until my travel agent recommended them, at first I was looking into greyhound, limos, school bus.. You name it LOL. 

 

What are the colours of your wedding? What does your dress look like? How many people are in your wedding party?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
