  1. Yay Lindsey! Have fun! It's gonna be great! I can't wait to see your pictures. I'm getting down to my last two weeks now ... eek! So excited for you!
  2. Wha what about wearing sneakers to dinner? My FI is wearing converse for the wedding, could he wear those into dinner?
  3. As far as music during the ceremony, did you think it was necessary to have music playing during the ceremony. Or was just a processional and recessional enough?
  4. So.. what do you guys think are appropriate tip amounts around the resort? I don't want to be insulting by give someone a buck, but at the same time I don't want to get them 10 if 1 would have been appropriate. So, I'm thinking tipping waitstaff during the reception and at other times, housekeeping, dj, photographer, etc. Suggestions?
  5. So I had my bachelorette party over the weekend. Soooo much fun. My boudoir shoot was awesome. I looked so good in my photos. It was a total self esteem boost, I had know idea I could look so beautiful. It makes me feel so much better for my my wedding. It also told me that I need to get my make up professionally done, it makes such a big difference on camera. I can't wait til I have something to post on here for you guys. Eeek! so much to do still!
  6. Katy, this is an amazing shot. I can't wait for my shoot on Sunday!!!! Quote: Originally Posted by MrsHK I did one too! A friend of mine is a photographer and she gave me a discount.

We could sit and look at all the photos together and pick the layout for everything. He has an eye for photography so I think he would enjoy the process. She's also going to photoshop about 10 of them for me so I want to pick those carefully with his input. This is her website. If anyone is ever in Vancouver and wants any sort of photography done, she is amazing! Danaea Li Photography: http://danaealiphotography.com/ For now I'll just give him one printed out in a card with a "there's more with this came from...." kind of comment. Can I share one of the not to revealing photos here? I'm wearing more in the photo than I do on the beach! Hopefully it's ok with the moderators. Here goes....
  7. I'm actually doing 2 gifts, I got him a guitar. He loves guitars and I got him a really cherry fender strat and I'm giving him a photobook with shots from my boudoir shoot. The best thing about the boudoir shoot is that we're doing it this weekend as part of my bachelorette weekend and it's being covered, so that's a sweet savings and fun with my girls. ... as far as my something blue... I'm putting "I do" in blue rhinestones on my underwear... plus my engagement ring is actually blue, so that's super covered. I don't have a something old yet... just realized that ... I will have to look through my stuff to see what I have and can use. ... and my something borrowed is coming from my grandmother, but I'm not sure what yet.
  8. can you guys share your centerpiece ideas with me? I'm having rectangular tables and right now I'm drawing a blank on centerpieces that won't break the bank. The prices for extras are just outrageous... I wanted to do the orchids in the vases of water, but they're $170 a vase...craziness... $110 a bag of petals... I have about a dozen mercury glass holders and another dozen silver tealights.. that's just not enough on its own. I just want something simple and beautiful... but not empty looking... sigh.. two years of planning and I never thought I'd be here one month out.
  9. I'm gonna show some ignorance here... but are those "eyelash extensions"? I didn't even know such a thing was possible. Where do you get something like that done, how do they do it? Everything about this is surprising to me.
  10. I am having such a hard time picking a processional song for me to walk down the isle to... help please!! I think I've heard about a million songs and none of them really feel right.
  11. This is what I'm using a 54"x 10yd organza wrap for mine... but I also considered this http://www.efavormart.com/turquoise-polyester-fabric-bolt-5410.aspx and http://www.tableclothsfactory.com/satin-fabrics-tulle-s/116.htm both companies have a lot of variety.
  12. Yay Gail!!!!! Have Fun, I can't wait to hear all about it and to see some of your pictures!!!!!
  13. Hot damn!!! How did your TA do that? Maybe I should tell mine to start pumping them for credit. .. our weddings are a week apart, they can't be that different in pricing.

I still have a month and a half though, so I think I'm ok. Not in panic mode yet. Still in "I can lose another ten pounds" mode.
  15. I only have on Best Maid of Honor, we don't even have a Best Man! But, I'm still having a Bachelorette Party. You should do it, ask you friends by you to just take you out one night this week and wear a silly veil.. then run around a bar or two telling everyone you meet that "you're tying the knot". Or book a facial and massage apts for you and your girls, get your nails done. That kind of thing. Everyone deserves an "all about the bride" party.
  16. Here's what we've got: Vows I love you, Jennifer/Todd. You are my best friend. Today I give myself to you in marriage, as I choose you to be my wife/husband. I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you, and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle. I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems hard, when our love is simple, and when it is an effort. I promise to cherish you, and to always hold you in highest regard. These things I give to you today, and all the days of our life. I am forever yours……faithfully. Rings I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and commitment to you. With this ring I marry you and join my life to yours. As this ring has no end, neither shall my love for you.

  18. Did anyone get the dress laundered, after the ceremony, at the resort? Thinking about doing it there instead of here. I plan on wearing it again for my AHR.
  19. Oh my god... I am in Love with this... those are just dollar store frames?
  20. I hear you there girl. I found this great app for that. WedHappy... it sets alerts for you and makes a calendar... it's fantastic. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/weddinghappy-wedding-planner/id432763910?mt=8 I've got my shower tomorrow!!! I am so Excited!! My MOH has been really killing herself this last week prepping for it. Her thing is that since I'm not getting the Big Party I wanted, she wants to incorporate and throw the over the top party that she thinks "I deserve". I think this has only been more fueled the last two weeks with my disappointment over guests dropping out and have a wedding guest list of 11 people. I'll put up some pictures of what she does for you all to see on Sunday!
  21. Ok... so the final count is in... and I only have... sniff... 10 guests... sigh... I need some suggestions of fun things to do, to keep things interesting with such a small group. oh, and I'm going to share somethings I just found... since they seem good for any size group. Reverse couple kiss - This is a fun twist on the tradition of the bride and groom exchanging a kiss when the guests clink their glasses. Give your DJ a list of couples in attendance who will be "spot lighted" and instructed that they must first demonstrate a proper kiss before the bride and groom take their turn. Pearls of wisdom- Before you arrive, have your guests write words of advice to the two of you. Example: "As you are waiting for the bride and groom to arrive, please take a moment and think about w hat advice you would give them as newlyweds. What will help them keep their love alive and strong and have a happy life together. Write your pearls of wisdom on the lines below and place them on the DJs table. Throughout the evening he will stop the music and take a moment to read a couple at a time. Your name is optional though it would be nice to know who it comes from. Humorous or sentimental it’s your choice!" -----------------I would really love any ideas you girls have been tossing around..
  22. While we're talking about things that we have to do... I've been working on my ceremony script. I came upon this rather useful collection of readings. Thought I would pass it on. http://marriagecelebrant.wysiwyg.net.au/celebrant/download/Ceremony-Readings.pdf
