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!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
