i got all of my sashes, organza overlays, table runners, and napkins from weddinglinensdirect.com.  My colors are fuschia, green and orange - so i just got an assortment of all (3 colors of  napkins, 3 colors of runners, and 3 colors of overlays).  i don't know how they will choose to use them.  LOL hope it looks ok.  I got the flowers from wedideas; 1 bridal bouquet, 4 bridesmaids bouquet, and 6 boutineers.  LOVE LOVE LOVE them.  When i got my flowers I loved them all except for MINE; bc there were lilies in them that weren't real touch and looked bad - i emailed them - send them back, and they were great!  They weren't mean or rude at all, fixed them how i wanted them, and sent them back! BEAUTIFUL flowers - i totally recommend wedideas.  Oh and the best part?  All of it was only like 400$!! Awesome price! i just cant say enough good things about this company.  i tried to take pics with my camera but they just don't look good:/ but i'm sure my photog will get some good ones!  and i am hoping to get them all back in good condition so i can sell EVERYTHING when i get back!

oh and just a word of advice ladies....TAKE YOUR VITAMIN C!!!  I think the stress of the last few months caught  up with me (planning a wedding, my dog got heartworms, and a close friend passed away all within a month) - and about a month ago my WISDOM teeth flared up, had to have oral surgery to have them removed, then got a dry socket (of course), then i woke up last sunday with a sore throat and a head cold!! So take your vitamin c and save yourself the misery of trying to get packed up for your wedding while you feel like you are going to shrivel up and die.  LOL

i also bought my bags from the dollar tree.  They are great quality and sold out quick, but i just saw them back again this spring.  they are a light tan canvas with assorted colored handles and a pocket.  Very large bags (would fit a big beach towel).  I love them!

I thought that they were cute, but I really liked that I could by a dozen for $10.  But still looking for options...  Let me know if anyone can help!  Thanks.

Hey all- I have not been able to check in very often in the past month it has been INSANE! We leave on May 6th for our wedding on May 9th. It looks like I might see some of your weddings while I am there! I am having last minute panic attacks about things I have left to do.

 

1) Write Ceremony Script

2) Prepare music for ceremony

3) Load music to Ipod to play at reception

 

Any suggestions on length to play walking down the isle? We are having a small wedding with 4 people walking and then me...

 

Any other must have's or things anyone else forgot that they wish they had done before leaving??

    • 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!
