Man That Sucks! Sorry to hear about all your DIL trouble...she sounds like a piece of work! Like @@deecol said...this is the spot to unload! we all have done it! and that's what we are here for!

 

The sight of the dollar right now is making me physically ill! I hope something happens soon and it goes back up...although chances of that are unlikely!

It's been a busy few weeks so I'm a late in catching up. So glad you finally got to try on your dress. It's beautiful and you will feel like a million bucks in it when you walk down the aisle :) 

 

I have haven't tried most of these tricks, but check out Pinterest for shoe stretching tips:

I have taken shoes to a shoe repair place to have them stretched and that has worked out pretty well. Costs a few bucks though.

 

I'm sorry to hear about the stuff with your DIL. Not cool. I wish things were easier for you.

 

OMG the Canadian dollar is killing me. Actually, I'm in complete denial and pretty much ignoring it. We don't have to pay for most things until next April, so I'm hoping it will improve. Although it doesn't really sound like it :(

@vancouverpetuniab I'm on the same wavelength as you - just hoping the US dollar turns around by April!  Fingers crossed!!!

It's tough, no doubt. I'm so used to it since my stepson has been in the US for 8 years so I don't like it, but I'm able to balance it out. For anyone not used to it, it's sticker shock for sure!


I received our sunglasses yesterday and the bags and a couple of other things have been delivered to my stepson in PA - my jewellery, the table runner and chair sashes, our cup labels and other things. I won't pick them up until about mid september though so by then I'll be able to put everything together. The good thing is that our friends from here are on the same flight with us and parking their car in our driveway while we're gone, then we're all going in my truck to the airport. It means I'll give them their bags before we go and they can pack them into their luggage. No transport for me! Yay! lol I will take a couple since there are Vancouver people joining us in Mexico but less than what I thought. I can live with that.

I just got caught up on your thread and I'm sorry but your DIL angers me! You are such a supportive, understanding and beautiful woman and to say no to receiving your shipments is such a bitchy thing to do. It's not like you've made her pay for your purchases. Ugh, ppl like her anger me! Hugs and love your way. As my mom always says, you just can't fix stupid lol.

 

And ladies, our dollar is awful! I keep updating our wedding budget spreadsheet and it's so depressing to see the U.S. price and the CAD price side by side. I'm hoping it will get better. I've never read so many financial forecasts in my life!

we definitely did a lot less in Mexico due to the dollar. Our whole group was on the same boat, the good thing is that everything is already paid at an AI! haha I couldn't even imagine having to pay everything extra over there. Our hotel has the European plan option too, and so a lot of things on the menus have the prices. Some drinks were $17USD  :blink: . We would have been so poor at the end haha.

@@TinkerSofi sounds like Vegas. Shawn paid $15 for an orange juice. We asked the server as it has to be a mistake right? No. From them on we got booze instead as it was cheaper lol. I had a burger at Gordon Ramsay's restaurant for less than that orange juice! Sigh

When we are in Vegas, we go to Walgreens and buy vodka & mix for the room. Soooo much cheaper! :)

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
