Need Lots Of Info Please! :)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 I am writing this to help my better half to get more info on the subject and hopefully narrow some ideas down to where when and how. I am asking for as much info as you people can spare. I want the good the bad and the ugly. Its her day so I want to make it the best that I can for her with as little stress.


We are looking for a destination wedding. Late Dec early Jan, Somewhere warm, Sikh wedding theme. Gonna high ball the amount of people to be safe. 150-200 people hoping to be with in $1200-$1600 travel cost for people. What do we need to fly down for the wedding (DJ,Photo. ect.) Keeping budget fairly high since I know it will be extra cost for that many people. I am expecting 30-50k (I could be off on this). Nice settings, beaches, food and rooms.


If any one has good info as in places and even in wedding planners to go with would be amazing.

We are from Calgary Canada so any one around that area who has expertise in it would be a bonus also.


Please feel free to send me any info you can on here or to my email deej_34@shaw.ca


Thank you.

Congratulations! I think you have a to of options, not really sure where you are thinking of going unless I missed it in your post? We are doing our wedding in Jamaica and it will be about 1700-1900 per person for an all inclusive including the air fare. If you have particular dj and photographers you want to work with you will need to fly them down as well. However most locations have local people who do these things and you can check out their work and get references as well and may save some cost. Good luck and happy planning! Also very nice of you to post on here to get info for her! I wish my fiancé would take as much interest haha!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
