@danielleesme, we have had Brides in the past bring candies as edible favors, and mini tequila bottles. my question to you is,what type of favors are you looking to bring?
We thought about doing MMs, and we found that they can be sent to us in individual packaging. I was thinking about contacting Customs before we actually order them, but the general consensus that I have read is that candy is typically okay, so *fingers crossed!
Thanks so much for the lovely welcome!
@danielleesme Hi Danielle! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. Which resort are you getting married at?
I love Vancouver Island. We are many, many, many years away from retiring but when we do, that's where I want to be. My fiance lived there for a year and I loved visiting. Mike's family all lives in BC and we are in the Toronto area. We chose a DW for the same reasons you did.
A lot of ladies bring their OOT bags down with them. I've read making sure to pack your receipts is always a good idea. Not sure about edible favours. I'll be interested to hear what past brides reply. We are stuck on favours - no idea what to do. A lot of brides do maracas and I like that idea but my sister-in-law did that so we want to switch it up a bit.
Good luck with your planning!
Hello Ash, thanks so much for the welcome! VI is lovely, and although it rains a lot, the temperatures stay close to 0 and rarely snows (basically everyone knows about the "Snow Storm of 96" because it snows so little and that was a decent sized storm for us! ) It is definitely a great place to live, but we moved for work. (I miss the ocean more than I actually care to admit!) Where on the Island did Mike live?
Chris' family is all over GTA and southern ON, and I lived in Hamilton when I was a kid. His sister is smack downtown TO, (literally across the street from Rogers Centre), and we love visiting!
I found an Canadian Etsy site (I think while going through this site actually!)
where they make mini pinatas. I am in LOVE! I thought it would be cute to fill them with personal MMs in our wedding colours? My sister in law did MMs as well, but she did them in etched shot glasses, so they are kind of different? It is hard to find something different, especially with the CAD dollar being so low. Fingers crossed it picks back up!
We are getting married at the Sandos Playacar Beach Experience, in Playa del Carmen! Where are you getting married?
Thanks for the warm welcome!
