Hi @@Wafflesmom ! I wouldn't make any jokes haha! I live in Kerrisdale, but I might be taking a job in San Francisco this year! It's a busy year! Thanks for the welcome! Tonight is my first night on here, and I hope I get more time to learn from everyone on here and share fun finds, it looks like a great site!

Hi! 

 

I'm a BC bride too! Just joined the site looking for tips. Getting married on November 17, 2015 at Now Amber Resort in Puerto Vallarta Mexico! Puerto Vallarta is a really great place for BC people to go to because of the direct flights!

Hi @@amberc welcome to the site! It's great to see another BC bride We were at Puerto Vallarta last year and absolutely enjoyed it. We stayed close to the Malecon so we walked around everyday. It was beautiful at night and I felt so safe, the locals were really friendly. Since we were there last year, we figured that we'd visit the other side now.

 

How's the planning coming along? This site is great when it comes to tips and the bride's on here are awesome! Everyone is helpful so don't hesitate to ask any questions.

@@Wafflesmom Thanks for the Welcome!

 

Ya we have been to Puerto Vallarta twice now. The first time we stayed close to the Malecon which was really nice, and the second time we stayed at Now Amber Resort and we fell in love! It also feels less stressful planning the wedding from so far away after already visiting the resort! I definitely feel more confident about my decisions of locations for the ceremony & reception and I know what to expect in terms of food (which is excellent). 

 

I definitely want to visit the other side of Mexico as well, but Puerto Vallarta is so much more affordable living on the West Coast.... perhaps one day!

Hi @@vancouverpetunia! Wow, two more BC brides, I'm so happy!! How's your wedding planning?

 

Things are coming along for us. We are confirmed at Now Sapphire for April 7, 2016 and just did a site visit last week (we did a last minute getaway to the Mayan Riviera, so couldn't miss the chance to pay a visit). Our guest deposits are due May 15. I think I've decided on colours and now starting to think about dresses, decor, etc. But we have a year, so I'm not too worried about it. That said, I'm a planner, so I'm now completely obsessed  :P

@@vancouverpetunia you're in great company, there are a lot of planners on here, myself included You're lucky you did a site visit, we unfortunately aren't able to but we've had a lit of friends who gave been to Moon Palace and have assured us that we're in good hands. What have you decided on in terms of colours? Ours are coral and grey. I'm not sure if you're thinking about getting ready robes but La Vie En Rose is currently have a 3 for 1 sale and there's a peach, and a navy kimono that's included. They are pretty so I got some and took advantage of the sale!

@@Wafflesmom I saw that La Vie en Rose sale posted on the weekend and bought 3 robes online yesterday! My first wedding purchase  :) We are doing peacock colours (but not a peacock theme) - blue, green and maybe some purple. At least I think we are. I only decided that yesterday morning and then saw the robes and bought them, so I guess I've locked it in?  :D

 

I've heard good things about Moon Palace. I'm sure it will be amazing! We booked the resort without seeing it, but I have a work colleague who was married there 2 years ago, so that helped to reassure me. The trip last week was very last minute. I never expected that I would see the resort before we arrived for the wedding, so I was pretty excited. 

 

Question for all Vancouver area brides - I am planning to wear a very casual dress. Probably white, but likely basically a sundress. I don't know that bridal stores will do the trick (and may mark up the cost). Any suggestions on where to look in Vancouver?

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned.
