I'm having a lazy day, letting the kids watch cartoons while I play on my computer and drink coffee.

 

Jenny2014 you're braver than I am! When we lived on the 12th floor I wouldn't go any farther than the door, even though we had a huge balcony.

Ah no, it wont tak forever! We'l just keep posting random posts like this (a bit sneaky, but hey!), and it will all add up!! 

 

Love a lazy day every now and then!

My fiancé was ready to go somewhere one day and I told him I just needed 3 more posts before we could leave. He thought I was nuts, but now he asks how many I have left. It's become a nightly ritual/game. After each post I announce 8 more, 7 more, all the way down to 0. It's pretty ridiculous! Lol!

Thank you! Yeah, I try to get at least 5 posts a day, only joined last week so dont think Im doing to bad. I know I sort of hijacked this forum as after much deliberation we decided NOT to have a Destination Wedding, but will have an AHR. So Im kind of limited to posts I feel I can respond too... Looking for ideas though for the AHR and somewhere where I can vent my excitement as we are keeping our wedding secret from family & friends.

But after being on this forum for a week, Im starting to feel we should have arranged to have our elopment wedding in Jamaica or even a full blown DW with some guests. I just know OH would freak if I were to mention to him that maybe we should just have a symbolic "non religious" blessing or something like that on the beach. We just arranged the paperwork to have our Civil ceremony here at home, last week. And our wedding plans and honeymoon plans have been around the world about 3 times!

The site is crazy helpful though. I've never been too savvy in party planning.. so planning a wedding was a lot of guess work at first... but now I've gone as far as writing the ceremony script, building my OOT bags, doing iron-ons for my bridal party.... things I probably wouldn't have done without the site....

 

Keep on trekkin....

Will get there! Agree, so many great ideas on this forum!

Renting is almost not worth it anywhere in Southern Ontario, it's insane... We can't afford to rent a real house, but hope to buy one maybe in 5 years. Kind of frustrating.

 

I didn't think about talking money with family and friends. No kidding that would be awkward. Definitely a TA then, I just need to find one. I'm giving myself until January 2014 to have things booked and STD's sent out so I have some breathing room there at least. I think a year is good notice for this kind of thing, right?

 

 

 

Oh you'll get there! You're already at twice what I am lol

I only have a boy, but my friends who has girls often tell me of their attitude! Some of them were real little madams at the age of 4 or 5! 

 

A few years ago when the "boom bust" in Ireland we were considering of emigrating. To me Australia is soo far away (many Irish people emigrating there) so for a while we were thinking of Canada. But it is such a big move (specially when you have children & a house with a mortgage and its NOT a sellers market). I was looking at renting houses in Canada but it looked very expensive! For now we have decided to stay put where we are.

That is so funny. We've talked about moving over to the UK a lot. At this point we're staying here in Canada, but it's still an option for later.

Oh yeah, same here,  we havent completely abandoned the idea of a move either. We'll see what the future brings! 

And Canada is still a good option! Is the cost of living high?

It really depends where in Canada you want to live. Some places have a very high cost of living, and others quite low.

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
