Ok ladies great news... after I went on a rampage to the head office of my TA I got them to almost get me back to the price that i was quoted 2 months ago!!! I couldnt be happier and the Western Regional Manager Sandy was great with listening to me she came to Calgary just to investigate everything that has happened to me over the past 2 months (thank god we did almost everything by email) She also got in touch with Transat and had them lower the price $50 a person, but they are also going to provide each one of my guests with headphones and 2 drink tickets... oh the little things LOL So I am going in next week to pay my deposit and then I can finally get invitations out and be done with this stressful period of the planning and maybe start some of the fun DIY stuff that I have on my list!!!!
Glad to hear you got it sorter out :) and some little extras ! As for travel agents how long are they giving your guests to book from the point you get the quote?

So my quote had a 2 week expiry so I have to have mine and my FI's deposit paid by Oct 31 ($300) and then with that deposit the tour company will hold 30 seats for 90 days, within that 90 days the price is protected, so all the guests have to come up with at that time is $150 deposit and then the balance is due 60 days before travel. At least thats how I understand it, I am not sure how it works if I have more than 30 people... but I think that I am going to pay the deposit and then send the invites and then not really worry about it (or try not too)!!! But we are going in next week to pay and ask my last minute questions!!!

I am using Maritime Travel, I have used them for all my travel in the last few years... the lady doing my wedding isnt my normal lady (she had a death in the family and has been out of the office) but we have made it work. and then I contacted the resort directly.

 

I did get quotes from a bunch of the big name agencies and Maritime was still better.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
