January 2009 Brides Post Here

WOW... Ladies, Looking good

 

Holy moley! It has been a while since I checked in with you!

 

I am thrilled to see that we have some new January Brides! But definately sad to see that we've lost Andrea!

 

Dez, I'm with ya - I hope she comes back under a new name.... and finds us again!

 

So... my last post was on page 20... It really took a lot of reading to get caught up.

 

SO... the wedding front - my white linen wedding shower was on Labour Day weekend. It was amazing!

I have been writing thank you cards like literal maniac!

I think I am around the seventy mark with the thank you cards from the shower, and there really is no end in sight!

 

On the weekend of the 23rd I went and picked up my dress in Toronto! YAY!!!! It is just gorgeous! And is now hanging in the closet at my mother's house.

 

Today I called a local seamstress and have an appointment for my first fitting! November 10th 6:30 pm ! YAY!

 

Last week, FI and I went to the jeweler's and dropped off my e-ring to have the custom wedding bands started. They should be ready for October nineth!

Thanks to the ladies on the forum, I made a decision on mine, and thus FI"s will be very simiar to mine. I picked #1 - as the inspiration for my ring. FI's will be inspired by mine, but will have no diamonds (as per his request) but it will have five indents where my diamonds would be so that they match! So exciting! I can't wait to see the two rings together.

 

The only thing that is currently un-nerving is my BM dresses

They have been bought and paid for, but my bridesmaid and dearest friend, who became a new mother on July 2nd is unable to zip her dress... she is short about 4" ---eeik... but I told her not to fret, and that on November 2nd - my birthday and the 3 month b-day for baby girl C, that she can then see if the dress fits. She is really stressed, and I was calm for her, but I am nervous that we'll have to find new dresses....

 

UH OH...

 

Nice to read and catch up with everyone!

 

Ciao - Aim.

You ladies have been busy! I'm still a little behind on some of the planning.

 

ToBeMitchell: don't worry, I also haven't found a dress yet. This weekend my Mom and I are going dress shopping. Wish me luck!

 

We also haven't looked at wedding bands yet. That's a project for October. My fiance is out of town working for most of September, so we'll go once he is back and can schedule some time around his work schedule (he works shift work, and it's all over the place).

 

We don't have clothing for the groom yet either. However, that's on hold for now and my fiance is losing weight right now and wants to buy something closer to the date when he knows what size he will be.

 

On a positive note, my OOT bags are almost done *YAY*. I just have to buy the actual bags and one more item for them.

 

I think the rest of the stuff I need to do (chose music, etc.) can be done over the next couple of months and I'm not worried about that stuff.

 

Cheers,

Jen

On the dress issue- so far I have only looked online. (I know- get out there and just do it!) I plan to go this weekened and check out the ones I found online. Cross your fingers!!

tobemitchell: i'm still deciding whether or not to engrave his ring. i think he wants the date, but i wanted to add something else....i don't think he's too crazy about adding too much though...haha i'll probably get the date engraved like this: 1.3.2009

 

i have no idea how long it takes...i need to check into that! thanks for the reminder!

Wow...I really am ahead of the invitation & STD thing!!

I sent my STD's with my Xmas cards last year!!! And my invitations went in March or April (I think! - it's been so long I can't even remember!) We booked the wedding the beginning of March so it had to be around then! I wanted everyone to have a lot of notice!!! As for everything else I'm a littel slack! I just ordered my dress (the second, and hopefully final one!) in August and it's not expected in until December!smile41.gif I hope everything is ok with it!!

Jeff has not even gone looking for his clothes...he wants all white linen...and I think he's going to find it hard with the fall coming in now! We also have to get our wedding bands...which is going to be difficult since mine will have to be custom! I have ordered my favors...wedding fans (click here http://www.everythingfortablefavors..../EB1013)...and labels (click here Everything for Weddings: Starfish Shaped Stickers) I love them! But that's the extent of what I have done!! So much more to do!! lol Wish me luck!

 

Oh...by the way...we leave for Puerta Plata Jan.18th & we're getting married on Jan.22!!! :)

Haven't gotten our rings yet....having some $ issues, so that's on hold right now.

 

My dress should be in any day. And FI's suite should be in early this week, as long as it looks good on him in his size, we're good :)

We are planning getting the ring business done in November. My E ring was custom and only took a couple weeks to come in.

 

This weekend my FI outfit came in the mail and he really likes it. Now we just need to measure the groomsmen and order their outfits.

 

Last night I wrapped the handles of our raffia fans with satin ribbon. They look so pretty. I also want to put the ceremony program on them but it'll be a while before we have any idea what's happening during the ceremony.

 

I think that's it for now.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
