Our Blog

  • Page in the works!

    I promise not to be a Bridezilla or grossly overboard with this wedding, but this seems like a fun idea to keep everyone in the loop, especially with many family and friends afar, and share in the excitement. 


    Naturally, I will most likely be the one blogging as David is not much for social media. 


    talk soon xo

  • Wedding Attire


    Hey Gang! 

    So I have been browsing the website below and thought I'd share as it's perfect for the men attending the wedding that may want to dress up or buy something new, but don't want to swelter in the Mexican sun!

    This website specializes in linen pants, shirts and dresses for beach weddings and could be a good option for you if you're just looking for a new light weight dress shirt or pants for the wedding/week in Mexico. 

    The men in the wedding party will be wearing beige linen pants and classic white linen shirts. For example: 



    Happy Shopping !!

    Come one, come ALL!

    Hey all!

    The bride’s family will be hosting a Stag and Doe on May 20th 2016 at the Ukrainian Hall in Hamilton, ON for everyone who wants to come out and celebrate our wedding with some cold drinks and hot food! This is a great opportunity for those who cannot make it to the wedding in Mexico to come and visit before the big day!

    We are thrilled to announce that David’s family will be joining us for this Stag, flying in from Vancouver the same day!! BC does not partake in Stag and Doe’s so this is an exciting new concept for them and they are stoked to join in the fun!!

    We will have so many games and prizes and family and friends to celebrate with! YEEE!

    Please contact Laura, Krista, Lindsay or Linda for tickets (via Facebook). $10 tickets, packages available!

    Hope to see you out there!

    Yes, you heard right!

    Hey gang, 

    So guess what?! Sunwing has dropped their prices for our trip to Mexico by $200! As such and because we are in a group booking, we are allowed to take advantage of this and have ALL of our rates from Toronto and Vancouver decrease by $200!


    If you have already paid your balance in full, you will be getting a refund from Valerie. If you still have an outstanding balance (remember this is due July 28th!!!) you can deduct that amount from your trip costs before settling your balance. 


    Again, if you need anything or have questions please do not hesitate to contact our wedding planner at
