That's so great that you are so involved in the wedding planning.

And girls, I have decided that I am going to do a boudoir shoot!!  I'm nervous b/c I am not "sexy" at all!!  But I'm thinking of doing a bridal one with white lingerie and my veil, a Ravens one since it's my FI's fave team, and a police one (his profession). 

 

Any suggestions on outfits or things to do?

Don't worry, you'll get everything done! My number one helpful tip: Start putting everything for the wedding together in one place. When you think of anything you want for Mexico, put it in the pile. That way, when you start packing everything is in one spot, and you don't forget anything!

 

I am not sexy either, but the boudoir photos were a lot of fun! (but I have to admit, I was dreading it at the start) Love the Raven's idea, and maybe you can use a pair of handcuffs in a cute way! (dangling off your heels?) If you have a feather boa...bring that. And a sexy (satin/silk) robe. Also something my photographer suggested was writing a little love note on a card, and holding that (I love you, Thinking of you, etc.) Have fun!

 

Less is More....Happy Wedding Day! Hope all is going wonderfully :)

Vista print is having a great Tshirt sale right now, so I've been busy trying to design a shirt for my OOT bags!  As with everything else, its so much harder than it seems!  I've realized its impossible to come up with one design for everyone...so I made 2.  The one with the photo is for the older generation, then the graphic T is for the younger folk (probably 40 and under).  I'm sure there's exceptions in each group, so they can swap or something.  I'm going to try to order them tomorrow...anyone have any suggestions/comments to make them any better?  I'm so not good at this creative stuff!

oh, and..."J'aime Talis" means "I Love Talis" in french...so its not a typo :)

Also, I started on my welcome book this weekend!  Talis is having his bachelor party weekend, so I'm keeping myself super busy!  I wanted mine to be the size of half of 8.5" X 11 landscape and couldnt find a template anywhere.  It was quite a challenge to find the right numbering layout to match with my printer's format!  Many hours and almost a ream of paper later...I have my template!!  Someone was asking about Welcome Book Templates a few pages back...so heres mine! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh...and Murmel...I really like your opening welcome note...so I hope you dont mind if I borrow!

Jamie, please feel free to borrow whatever you need! I know I looked through so many other brides brochures/letters and then mixed them all up to come up with most of what I have! (and I was laughing myself silly reading about your problems with the page layout. It took me forever too! LOL)  Love the t-shirt idea, they look great!

 

For Mel's mom: We are planning our honeymoon for late this year (November). We plan on travelling for about 3 weeks through Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.

It was nice to read your encouraging comments about dress shopping! I only went to 2 stores but tried on 24 dresses in a bunch of different styles. I had my sister (MOH) and bridesmaid with me and they were great! I went in looking for lace with straps and found a good option in that style (first pic) but then fell in love with a flowy dress at the second store, it was so comfortable (2nd pic) and fun. I'm torn between styles and think I need another round. It was an enlightening (and a little overwhelming) experience, wow, there are so many different dresses out there!!!!

    • 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!
