Oh it won’t be tacky at all, Baileyh!!!
In fact, I think it will be super nice. It will be like the first few moments when you just got engaged and you didn’t want to tell anyone about it yet – because it was your own little treasured secret. It will be really intimate and romantic.
You can get a short dress, something beautiful and stylish, go get married, get a friend or a student photographer or someone free to shoot some nice city hall photos, then go out to a nice candlelit dinner just the two of you.
If I could have multiple wedding, I would!!!!
And I am so sorry about your FI’s situation – but you guys can get through this, and create beautiful memories along the way! If you decide to do it, please keep us updated. I can’t wait to hear!

Does Canada Socialised medicine not cover dental work? I am a huge fan of the health care system in Canada… I do a lot of business there and one of my BM’s is Canadian. She just went through hell in a hand basket with root canals and a lot of other bad stuff. Everything was covered.
I do think that there is a dollar limit each month in regards to dental work???? Any Canadians know?

I agree with the “do it but don’t tell anyone” strategy!! Poor guy must be in some serious pain! Dental pain is the WORST. Ugh.

@Ms. Caniche – The health plan here in Canada does not cover dental. My employer covers me either fully or partially depending on what it is.

@Ms. Caniche – Just read the part about your friend, she was probably also covered by her employer!

I agree with the DO. My Fiance and I are lucky that his work allows engaged couples to be on their plans or I would be in a world of trouble. It has helped me so much, never having insurance before hand. I say do it!

Just a point to bring up and maybe it’s different in CA but we were all excited about Fiance getting on my insurance but it’s going to cost us about $500 a month for him to be on it . . . it’s much more cost effective for him to just go to the Dr’s at that rate so make sure there’s no additional fee’s for him.

FH can be on my plan for free (once we are married or common law)
Canadas insurance is “great” if its an accident. FH teeth wont be covered right now with the MSP he has BUT if we were in a really bad car accident and he hit his face and hurt his teeth…then it would be covered (no im not getting any ideas…and I TOTALLY dont agree with this it seems lame).
I will keep you posted with updates…but as of right now it looks like im heading to the alter!!! 🙂

Hey ladies…so just an update. FH went to the dentist this morning and they had to do some emergency work, they wouldnt even lethim out of the palce cause they said it was so bad 🙁 That part on cost 150.00 so we are lucky…they put in a temporary thing that makes it so he will be “ok” for 8 weeks, they said after 8 weeks he is pushing it. Right now he needs a root canal (in 8 weeks) and they said they have other issues to address, in the end it will “only” cost us about 1,000.00 unless he goes on my medical aka get married..it will be free.
Im kind of torn now at 8 weeks we are only 3 more weeks away from the wedding…so it makes sense to just grin and bare it for another 15 days…but we are worried that it will get worse and we might be pushing our luck…..what do we do?

IMO, waiting is all risk and no reward. Nobody needs to know if you don’t want them to, and like others have said, a city hall wedding may turn out to be a romantic intimate thing that the two of you treasure! On the other hand, if you wait, his dental problem could get worse and leave him in more pain. I can’t imagine he’s going to enjoy your real wedding if he’s in desperate need of a root canal! I say go to city hall this weekend and get him healthy asap!

Just take care of it all now!! Even if he’s telling you he’s not in pain, it can’t tickle, and if they told you 8 wks was pushing it, an additional 15 days isn’t gonna fly. You’ll all be much happier in the end, he’ll have better teeth for your formal wedding photos and you’ll have a cute little ‘secret story” bond between just the 2 of you.

No go civil early! If anything, then his teeth will look pretty for your real wedding pictures!
