January 2009 Brides Post Here

Recommended Posts

Problem is I have no idea what I want. Oh, and good point about the holidays being busy. I didn't even think about that. I guess I should head to the store to try to figure out what I like and then go from there.

you can look online too. I just googled wedding bands and went there already having an idea and we worked from there. I think that made it a lot easier than going there blind.

 

We're getting FI a tungsten ring. Wedding Rings, Wedding Bands & Diamond Engagement Rings @ Jewelry Vortex has a video where they show them filing a gold ring with a metal file and then a tungsten ring...not a single scratch on the tungsten...so we're going with that for him lol

I've heard that you should send out invitations for destination weddings at least 4 months in advance. I think that the longer guests have to reply, the better.

 

I know that when I'm booked for a destination wedding (usually 6-8 months in advance) the very first thing I do is make travel arrangements.

 

The more time I have to plan for travel, the better, and I'm sure it is the same for guests.

Welcome to the thread! I was looking at your "to-do" list and noticed under Photography you need to pick out poses ect. There is an awesome thread in here about a Martha Stewart Planning guide. I didn't use any of it, except her photography planning page. It has all the pose combos, and room to write down poses you don't want to forget. I am TOTALLY bringing it to Mexico with me. I have been searching for 15 minutes and can't find the thread, but I do have it printed at home and I could scan it in if you want it (or you can try and search for it too UGH) Grrr, where is it? :)

Oooh, I'll have to search for that picture thread too.

 

So, my invitations came in today (yes, there were ordered SATURDAY)...anyway, I went to pick them up and I was not happy sad.gif

 

I had printed (TYPED) out exactly what I wanted it to say...Caps, spacing, etc...well...they took all but the initial caps out (um...ok, I can deal with taht), and they didn't skip any lines (like to break up the text). I actually said something to them about it (not like me) and the guy was really nice and is going to call the printer. I mean, come on...I PRINTED IT ON PAPER, how can you mess that up?!

 

Ok, I feel better now :)

I'm getting married January 28, 2009. We haven't booked anything yet as our location has been a difficult decision to make.

 

As of today, we are closeer than ever and may be booking with Sandals Whitehouse. It'll just be the two of us, but we are having a reception in Feb. in our hometown.

 

So far I've reserved the reception hall at the Church, purchased some of the flowers for the reception & the wedding ceremony itself, and some thank you cards that I got a killer deal on! $1.00 for a pack of 50 at Wal-Mart!!! Oh and I have bought some glass globes and red flower floating candles for the centerpieces at the reception.

    • 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!
