Yay!! Enjoy your shower! I bought something for anyone that threw me a shower. I think it was just nice to let them know that I appreciated the hard work they did to celebrate something for me.

Oooo how fun! I bought/made a gift for the girl that threw me a shower :)

 

You don't have to worry about giving the gift until after the shower, my shower was in September and I just finished making the gift last week.

 

I definitely immediately wrote thank you notes to everyone.

What a cute idea Amy! I think that will be very sophisticated looking.

I am going to make programs shaped in a fan with orange and pink paper, and tie them with colorful ribbon and hang on each of the ceremony chairs.

I got the idea from the Knot from this picture:

Amy - I do love the pashmina chair sash idea, it's brilliant!

 

AmyBermuda - I keep thinking I should do programs, your sound like very cute itdea :)

 

Is it wrong that I don't want to do programs because I want the ceremony over as fast as possible? I have what you would call... stage fright... I was thinking if there was a way to keep it under 10 minutes but that may be strange.

 

I'm not doing any special anything, sand ceremony, unity candle, nothing, I just want to give him the ring and kiss and I'm out! :)

I know I'm not in on the 'to-do's at the moment, but just for my own peace of mind, here's my update:

 

last week was due to see ring maker to make our wedding rings but the git didn't turn up!! had a colourful conversation with him yesterday and we have rebooked for a week on Saturday....so hopefully that will be something done soon.

 

On sunday we went to our AHR venue to talk food and managed to leave with a finalised menu and timescale, so not only is that sorted, we now know what time our reception will start and can start work on the invites :)

 

I've also started working on our wedding 'brochures' for Mexico too, but I'm a perfectionist and I'm not committing to a date to finish these!! haha plus it's pretty slow moving given the small amount of time I have to actually sit down and concentrate on something!

 

so....that's me so far!!

 

5 months to go, 5 months to go, 5 months to go!!!!! wooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!

Katie - Hahaha, I'm actually not shy at all, one of the least shy people I know. It's JUST a crowd of people quiet and looking at me. Let's put it this way, I don't like being the center of attention when it's just me, the remainder of the wedding will go fine, social butterfly, mingler if you will.

 

Also... I'm a bit of an emotional cryer... everytime I watch anything wedding on TV or movies, I just get so emotional and so many tears I am just so nervous about the potential mess I will be on my day. I'm going to need a structure balance of liquid energy.

 

LOL this reminds me, my MOH & I have been watching Bridezilla's together lately and have gotten some good lines to throw around on my wedding day that will crack us up.

 

If any of you are able to watch that show, it makes you feel much better about how you are as a bride, I can tell that none of you are that crazy!

 

Also, I would love to have ignorant bliss about how close my wedding is, I'm actually having nightmares, tossing and turning every night at this point. I'm too much of a worrier!

 

I feel like I'm the only one losing my marbles... say it ain't so!

    • 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!
