    So far, I have a white sari with all-over gold work. I have a video of it, but it looks like a shapeless cloth wrapped around me as the lady fitting me was only doing it for effect. I want to have a gold dupatta (read: veil) with a gold sequence border and crystal work done on it to match. I will also be sporting a wedding dress though, so I am not sure how I am going to work two outfits. Maybe the sari for the legal day and the dress for the DW, or the sari for the ceremony and the dress for the reception/TTD.

      Don't even talk to me about Christmas. I have no idea what I am getting people, but the last two years I was pretty good about getting nice gifts that didn't break my budget and they were very creative. The most expensive gifts were for my nephews and that was basically $20 in a card because I did not know what to get them. I also tend to spend quite a bit on FI, but that will stop as of this year as we clearly got bigger plans to come.

      One thing I may try to do it with my family this year is to just draw names out of a hat and then everyone just gets one thing for one person -- basically a Secret Santa but in the family. I think that is much more cost effective and everyone gets a gift. Christmas can be way over played sometimes.

        Hi there, everyone! Hope you all had a great Halloween, did anyone do anything fun? I dressed up as a bubble bath and had a couple friends over with a Halloween inspired meal. We only got 5 trick or treaters (and we were giving out FULL SIZE chocolate bars!) but we had a good time anyway! :0)

        Now onto the next big holiday, Christmas. I get so stressed around Christmas-time, but I also love it sooo much, I want to put my tree up the second the Halloween decorations come down! I'm skimping a bit this year what with the new mortgage, and the wedding coming up, so Secret Santa with family it is!

        Tam, where are you getting your travel mugs? Are you getting them printed with any message or anything? I want to do the same thing instead of favours since I think they'll get used more and will be good tools for identifying people who are there for the wedding, but I'm having trouble finding good prices through companies that ship to Canada. :0( Any help you could give me would be great!

        Jocy, your dress is breath-taking! Who's the designer? You look gorgeous in it, even though it's miles too big for you (as evidenced by all the pins at the back!). Absolutely gorgeous! I haven't been able to post photos on here (no idea how, I don't even have a profile picture!) but here's a link to mine:

        Hope that works! I love it but of course the model is wickedly skinny, doesn't look quite the same on this girl. ;0)

        Good luck to all of you who have your fittings this weekend, I hope it all goes well!

          tara your dress is gorgeous too!! You probably fill it out BETTER than the model! :)

          I will be interested to hear about the travel mugs too, since thats one of our options as well (if it is cost-effective).

          FI and I went as a plug and socket fr halloween... it was too funny! It looked like this:

            Ladies I have a question! I am looking at the DPC site, and it looks like the wedding extras site was updated, but maybe only partially? The cost for the reception dinner i.e. silver package is lower than the package prices that someone here was given that we all have. Any accounting for this? It is definitely worth a look, and maybe one of you has already noticed this and asked. It states at the bottom that the prices are effective for 2010....

              Tara your dress is beautiful! classy with high impact.

              We are ordering our mugs from discountmugs.com. they ship to toronto, so they should go to Ottawa. They have been the cheapest prices I have seen too...
              I was supposed to have ordered today, but got busy...again.
              They have a ton of choices.
              We are just going to put something simple like Punta Cana, DR as although it's cute while you're there, we figure no one wants to walk around carrying a travel mug with our names on it after..

                Ok, here is the website for my dress... I am REALLY nervous about going to try it on though. It is on bestforbride.com JAI collection #8594.
                When I look at all the other dresses (especially on here) I start doubting my choice...
                I will say two things though:
                I am true hour glass figure so I got a dress that fits over the hips.
                I look WAY better than the model does in the dress.. she just looks like she's PMSing and needs some chocolate or something.
                If you look it up (I tried to get a link to it) you have to be as honest as possible..
                Im sure I will feel better once I try it on again, but I'm still freaking..

                  Oh yeah, I forgot to say too that they can take a layer of crinling (I know I must have spelled that wrong) so it won't be quite as poofy..

                    Yeah, you're right Nat, that's weird... I like those prices a lot better though. What kind of packages is everyone looking at? What about photog?
                    Are you guys just using the hotel's photog?
