But not because I was unsure, it's because I'm being a savvy shopper instead. I live in NJ,and there is no sales tax on wedding dresses in NJ. PLUS, there's a great bridal boutique about 15min from my house highly recommended by a friend who purchased her dress there for her recent September wedding. The NJ boutique has a trunk show in a few weeks for my dress' designer which means about a 10% discount if I place my order at the trunk show, AND the alterations are about $200 less than Kleinfeld who charges $700 flat fee. So.....I think I'll be making out pretty well!!  Yay : ) I'll be purchasing a dress in a few weeks but I can say my search is over!

For anyone travelling with Sunwing!!!!  They have a dress program!!!!  I didn't know about it, but my TA is an angel and he signed me up for it, what does this mean?  There is a designated spot to hang your dress....make sure you ask about it, whichever supplier you are flying with...

One more tip - when you get on that plane, make sure you TELL the stewardess NOT TO FOLD YOUR DRESS.  They have closets and other methods of hanging your dress, so don't just take their word that it has to be folded and put in the overhead bins.  They lie lol.

My alterations place told me the same thing and of course I didn't listen on the way there and my dress was the ONLY dress folded - it was hung with everyone else's but they put the loop on the bottom of the garment bag over the top of the hanger...It was bustled in the garment bag and the loop for my bustle ended up breaking...I was pissed...

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!  
    • Visit Jamaica and check out Montego Bay Photographer for your family vacation or Destination Wedding photography!!! https://www.montegobayphotographer.com
    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
