Toronto Area 2014/2015 Brides

Recommended Posts

Looks like there are a bunch of girls from Calgary. Any other Toronto/GTA brides out there? It'd be great to exchange ideas on local agents, places for decorations (shared shipping?!), AHRs, etc.

Hi tygrrlily!

 

My name is Pam and I'm getting married in November 2014! In Montego Bay! :)

 

Where are you getting married?

 

I live in Brampton but I'm originally from Markham....

Toronto here. Well actually Mississauga but I work in Toronto. We're working at planning a vow renewal for Playa del Carmen for October 2015. Gran Porto Real is still number one choice, but Grand Sunset Princess is right there too. I also did the site webinar last month for Playacar Palace and was impressed with what I heard from the Rep.

 

I definitely can recommend Marlin Travel on Bay street as an agent. They were super to work with!  We had our at home reception in Burlington since that's where we lived at the time, in a hotel overlooking the lake. The room had floor to ceiling windows so when it got dark we had the lights out over the lake, plus from the Skyway bridge. It was really pretty. We just had a small group - only 30 - but people still talk about it. We had a great night! I'm very lucky that my step-son lives in the US so I order things and have them sent to his address, then just pick them up when we go down to see our grandkids. A heck of a lot cheaper and the shipping rates are unreal compared to canada!!

 

I know a few good websites for decorations if anyone is interested, depending on what you're looking for. Right off the bat I would recommend www.etsy.com for all kinds of things.

 

Happly planning ladies!

I'm also a Toronto bride! Having my civil ceremony in Toronto in July 2015 and planning to leave a few days later for a destination wedding in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico.

So excited but so much to do! I haven't even picked a resort yet!

Oh I love that you phrased it that way! Mature! I like that lol  I guess that's what I am too lol I'm 56 in just a couple of weeks and second time arounder... (is that a word?) We have 7 grandkids and I have 2 kids and 2 step kids but really all 4 are mine. Getting married again wasn't in the cards for us until health issues sort of made the decision for us, and now we're looking at a vow renewal for the same reason. I'm still trying to finish the research for the "where", and thankfully have time yet before I have to decide. And another hospital stay to get through too. But then hopefully it will all come together!

 

3 weeks is so close! And yes this site is fabulous for ideas, and tips and information. I'm glad it was helpful for you! Be sure to post pictures when you get back! Good luck and congratulations!

I'm a Toronto bride too!  April 2015 at the Royalton Punta Cana.  I've just started planning.  Does anyone know if you can have a symbolic ceremony in the Dominican and then have the legal ceremony in Canada when you return?  Or do you have to be legally married before you go to the Dominican for the symbolic ceremony?

Yay so many Toronto ladies! I'm hoping to get married at the Beach Palace, but we're going through some booking issues but will hopefully have it resolved this week!
 

@@acw271011 - I LOVE etsy - I have spent so many hours on it browsing everything!

 

@@LiannaBanana - I'm not sure if Dominican is like Mexico, but in Mexico it seems like you can do either.

    • 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.
