2016, not 2015 so not too soon :)

 

STDs should arrive this week and will go out next week.

 

Went dress shopping for the first time this past Thursday. Was able to confirm it is fit and flare I want but definitely didn't find "the one". My mum surprised me when we got there with my "Mrs. Romeo" hanger.

 

I ordered our vow books today too.

 

Almost finished my bridesmaid proposal boxes - mini champagne, makeup bag with mini toiletries, note pad, hand made cards, luggage tags and passport holder. Waiting for etsy to ship the luggage tag and passport holder.

 

And that's all I've done :) Can't wait to start the fun stuff once people start booking.

 

You're SO close. I'm jealous!!!!

@@IzzyDeee ^

You are off to a good start!! It's fun isn't it? Post your BM gifts once they are done if you can, they sound awesome :)

I had a hanger quite similiar to yours - did your mom get it off etsy? post-277873-142832575348_thumb.jpg

@@calgarybride2015 thanks! My mum found the lady on etsy but she went and met her to pick up and pay for the hanger to avoid shipping charges.

 

I told her she needs to teach me her etsy ways because I bought two of my gf's hangers and paid more in shipping than I did for the hangers lol

So true!   I always search for Canadian vendors first as their shipping (most of the time) isn't horrendous.   There was a few things for the wedding I HAD to have, where I had to suck up shipping - labels for my tumblers and my blume box vases, otherwise I was mindful.   I also made a trip to the USA as I had some stuff shipped there to save on the cost.  Have you considered this? It's called 'border shopping' I think and you can use sites like kinetic and ship to their 'depots' in each border city. Neat idea!

You Bouquet is Beautiful!!

 

Our Wedding is November 22nd 2015 :) 230 days!!

 

Your getting married on my birthday :)

Beautiful!! and I know what you mean! We were expecting maybe 20 guests but we are gonna have around 50 also!! I'm only using the hotel for the WC and my hair services! I have a very close family friend who is an amazing photographer (her daughter stood up at my adoption, and is now standing at my wedding as well!) so we gave her one of our free trips and she's going to shoot the whole week for free for us!! Can't wait! I'm getting kevan stewart for a DJ because he pays his own vendors fee and my MOH is doing my makeup! My wedding colors are purple gold and ivory! (I find the blues to be very played out) so wanted something different for my wedding

@@IzzyDeee, I messaged him on facebook and he told me his fee is $760USD for 4 hours and it doesn't not include the vendor fee. Is that what your paying?

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
