OMG....you're getting married in less than a WEEK!!!! congrats, you'll have a beautiful wedding!

I would love to get gazebo measurements and details of the terrace re-model...i know i also asked peterpanpixiedust but just covering my bases wink.gif
They didn't charge me for the rehearsal, we had the minister come and we were supposed to be charged for her transportation ($60) but I don't think they ever did. The whole thing was super short but I felt better meeting the minister before and talking through our script. (We had a native English speaker from Canada and she was WONDERFUL.)

The terrace is closed through the end a June according to Cecilia. I took pics of their progress I will post. I was bummed to find that out at first but we had our cocktail hour in the garden and it was so pretty.

I'm not sure the exact measurements but she hung my 8ft beads and they were short so I'd say the columns are about 12 ft? I had my decorations made for the old gazebo so we just made it work and it was fine.

I hope your wedding went well too! I'm so sorry you slipped through the cracks and I didn't end up wishing you a happy wedding day on your day. I am going to the airport in 4 hours. I had to go to the ER on monday, and today I just found out my laptop battery died, and all of my wedding docs , not to mention my Grad school stuff was on it. So luckily I can still plug it in (but the plug is testy and turns my whole computer off if I touch it wrong). So, instead of sleeping, I am transfering all my data on to an external harddrive. Most of it was on my flash, but now I need back up for my backup, since my computer may not work if the plug goes. AHHHHHH! Can I ever just have a good vacation from start to finish.

Btw, I haven't forgotten my requests, I have measuring tape for the gazebo columns (I will also ask the height), my camera (I hope I don't get jinxed and break it) which I will take pics of Desires, and I will ask for Terrace rennovation info. Good news, my mommy inherited a little money and gave me some for our trip, so now I can have money for the trip and still be able to pay off the ER bill. Good Times!

Ok, so after this week and an all night last night, I've been kind of a grumpy gus. But I made it to Cancun, I feel like I was scared of the airport for nothing (piece of cake with all 5 of us getting green lights), our flight was delayed 40 mins (right after he told us we should be leaving a little early, then he made a joke that you can't believe your pilot...LOL). Well, my computer started working again, and I'm on it right now talking to you guys. Our hotel is gorgeous, I drank a Tropicana (not the orange juice ;-) ) and ate an awesome burger tonight, had swim races with FI and future BIL, swam in the ocean before the waves washed me away. And guess what, I could see Dreams from the front side of our room, and the ocean in the back. Here's some pics... don't mind our sour pusses, he couldn't find the strength to smile and I looked dead (no sleep).

The gazebo is the little white dot.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
