I am starting to get the itch to plan so much but I know I need to relax. There's so much time but I feel like it will be here before we know it.

 

Hi there Sbelle!

My date is set for Friday July 25th! I've also got the itch and have been working away at getting a lot of my decisions made, including the dresses for me and my maid of honour, etc.

I definitely agree, it feels early but this way we won't be sweating the small stuff last minute either.

Congrats to all of you ladies! I'm looking forward to our 4pm beach wedding on Saturday, Feb. 15, with a private reception to follow in Blue Lagoon. We are having a cocktail hour as well at 5pm (figured the wedding will definitely be over by then) but not sure if we should have the cocktail reception in the atrium or infinity bar? Neither of us have been yet and not sure how far apart the beach, atrium and Blue Lagoon are.

 

Originally wanted Dwayne Watkins or Dean Clarke (photographers) but both are booked :( Will look into a few others I see suggested on this thread. 

 

Happy planning!!

Hi Junomei!

 

Ok good. Now I don't feel so bad. I am about to start my dress shopping. When you made your reservation did you decide on where you are doing your reception? The lady Erica who did my reservation never even asked me what location I wanted but I just sent an email making that request. I did decide on a cocktail hour for sure. We've invited over 50 guests and it's hard to gauge how many people will actually come right now since it's so early but I want to make plans now!

Hey girl! I've read really great things about the Inifnity bar. I've chose to have my cocktail hour there as well. Your wedding is Valentines day weekend! How romantic. I can't wait to see how yours turns out. Yes you have to hop on the photography train pretty quickly. I am currently reaching out to some recommendations as well.

 

Happy planning!

Hi Sbelle,

I mostly just told them where I wanted to have everything once I decided and they reserved it for me. Once you make the decision about your venues just send them an email. I was working with Sharlene back in January when I reserved my venues... so don't stress out that your planning to early in advance, lol, I think I got that easily covered.

I am hoping to do the ceremony at the Garden Gazebo but it will be my guests that squash that hope as it can only hold 70 people(according to an email Sharlene sent me) and if everyone comes who is invited than we MIGHT just make it. If I have too many guests than I'm hoping I can move it to the Atrium. My ceremony is scheduled for 2pm... originally I had the 4pm slot booked, with dinner at 6pm at the Blue Lagoon. I've moved my ceremony to 2pm so that I have more time to get perfect photos with the photographer I am bring within me from Canada, as I am a HUGE fan of her work. I know it sounds like a lot of time for my guests but there is an entire resort for them to take advantage of while we do pictures(basically they can relax at any of the bars, etc). Plus I read on another forum about a bride and groom that took like 20 to 30 minutes of alone time to just enjoy the day together... so I've also figured that into my schedule.

Hey girl! I was in contact with the resort all last week and I was absolutely heartbroken because the blue lagoon has been reserved for my date. So I asked for other options besides the Poseidon because all of the reviews that I have read stated the Poseidom wasn't anything compared to the Blue Lagoon and it was a far walk from the main parts of the resort. My mother is in a wheel chair so I have to try to accommodate her. But I mainly wanted the Blue Lagoon for the scenery so now they're giving me other options at this point. I've emailed off to a couple of photographers but I haven't heard anything from them yet. That's a really good idea about spending some qt with each other during all of the madness. I really like that idea. My ceremony is also at 2pm. I definitely agree with you there about timing. The 4:00 slot is too close to reception time and taking pictures that you really want can be time consuming.

Wow! It's awesome to see another NL Bride on here! I'm not nearly as far along as you are, but we're not getting married until Nov 2014, so I can't get any rates yet... I live in BC now, but most our guests will be coming from Newfoundland. Question, the price you were quoted, was that a direct flight? or is the quote based on flying from Toronto? That's the issue i'm facing, since we are getting married in November there are no dorect flights that time of year. So it seems to be adding up for our guests. Is it unreasonable to think that we could go for $1600 per person? LOL

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
