@Wafflesmom My dad lives in Langley and turned 94 in May so between Doug's parents who are both 81 this year and my dad, we're making sure that we find a way every year to spend time with them. You never know how long they'll be around. Plus one of our kids is in Vancouver so we'll see him and my dad. Doug's parents are in NB so we literally have to go from one coast to the other! lol

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

And congratulations to you as well! I see you're getting married at Moon Palace Jamaica. I've seen a few photos from there and they did an amazing job! It's such a beautiful resort. How's your wedding planning coming along?

Ummm, early stages I suppose. I am trying to make sure I don't start stressing over anything...I mean, after all, that's one of the benefits of a DW right? I just met my wedding coordinator and am really ready to dive in. We just signed our contract and are getting our guests booked. I haven't had a chance to actually "coordinate" anything with the coordinator yet, so really, I'm just getting started. Praying everything turns out like the vision I have in my head, lol. My colors are chocolate, royal/cobalt blue and white. I love calla lilies so I would really love for those to be used as the flower décor. How has everything been with planning the décor in the complimentary package? Did you end up going over budget for your extras? Anything, you definitely could not do? We're having fireworks added hopefully, so I'm excited about that. BTW, love the shoes as well. I'm thinking of going with blue BMs myself.

What I can tell you about early stage planning at Palace resorts is to ask for a complete list of ALL approved vendors. I think every bride has been told only certain vendors for certain things like DJ and decor, only to find out there are other vendors. Some are cheaper than others so definitely shop around. Also make sure you save email messages of decisions. I've had to rely on this when it comes to vendor fees (they were gonna charge me more but saved a previous email from my WC quoting less).
I love BM shoes. My sister in law wore blue jewelled ones for her wedding. They were gorgeous!

Thanks, I love the colors I've chosen and according the vision I have I think it'll be beautiful. I'm going for a serene, ethereal vibe. And thanks for all the info! I will be sure to save any and every correspondence with them and get a complete list of approved vendors. I met my coordinator on Sept 14th and so far, I haven't heard anything else from her. Did you encounter slow tat on your coordinator's responses? Thanks again.

Did you have your meet and greet phone call with your coordinator or just meet her via email?

So I have been home sick for the last 4 days but today I got something in the mail that's made me feel better....I got our formal wedding invitations As soon as we got engaged, Derrick's sister/my future SIL asked if she could make our wedding invitations. She makes cards for fun and I love all of her designs so of course I couldn't turn down her offer. My future MIL paid for all of the supplies including the card pockets, card stock, embossing powder, stamp and envelope. It was very generous of her. Back in July, my future SIL made two different versions for us to choose from. Right away, Der and I fell in love with one of them. So last month, my future SIL worked hard to finish all the invitations and today, I got them in the mail! I love them!!

Thanks @perianjay! We didn't really need the formal invitations but how could I turn down free invitations? Plus, it's a beautiful keepsake. We only made about 50 to send to grandparents and family from out of town.
