I moved out here with my fiance three years ago so we could be near his family, so I'm trying to plan a wedding thousands of miles away from my family.  I haven't made a lot of friends out here, so I don't have many people to talk to about wedding stuff. If anyone out there has any advice about travel agents or wedding dress shops or anything in Saskatoon or Regina, I would appreciate it!

Hey I am from saskatoon. Our travel agent we have been using to plan our wedding in Mexico for January 2015 is Stephanie Afseth at Uniglobe Travel on Circle drive. She Has Been Amazing. I also bought my dress at exquisite bridal! Super helpful!

Hey! I'm recently engaged and currently living in Regina, Saskatchewan. I'm in a similar situation as I moved here 3 years ago for school and I have no family here as well. Is anyone else from Regina or have any Travel Agents they could recommend here?

 

Are you guys all doing Mexico? I'm not totally set on my destination yet, but as you know travel can be a little difficult out of Saskatchewan. I don't want anything with 2 day travel to get there! At this point thinking Mexico, Nov 2015. But nothing set in stone. Did you guys speak with a travel agent first, or choose a resort first?

I'm planning for Nov 2015 as well. I talked to a couple travel agents and Told them what resort I had in mind, but it looks like rates won't be available until October. When I went to Mexico two years ago we had a direct flight to Cancun out of Saskatoon, so I'm hoping Regina has direct flights as well.

Please let me know if anyone finds a bridal store in Regina or Saskatoon that has a good selection of lightweight wedding dresses that aren't too expensive!

@@Maggietron that's cool we are maybe thinking similar dates! I was originally thinking Mexico (probably Cancun/Mayan Riviera) I was interested in DR but I searched for flight packages in Nov online out of Regina and they don't exist... the joys of Saskatchewan. Still have to chat with a travel agent, but I feel like my destination will be narrowed by flight availability.

My mom is coming to town from BC so I might go wedding dress shopping (too early to buy) but might be my only chance for mom to see me in a wedding dress before the big day! So I'll let you girls know what Regina has if I find anything!

I'd suggest using the vacation pricing grid on tripcentral.ca to get a rough idea of what is available out of Regina and what the rough prices are. It only shows about 6 months ahead, but it's a good jumping off point.

Hey, we are doing Mexico. Our wedding date is Jan 29th at dreams riviera can understand. I went in with a list of what was most important for me in a resort and my travel agent helped narrow it down! We are flying direct, leaving Jan 26th. My travel agent has been so helpful, and my dress just arrived!
