Time to start the post-wedding DIY projects.


I plan on making a coffee table book of our wedding pictures (and several other versions to give our families).


I plan on including pieces of our ceremony script and lyrics from the songs we used in the ceremony. Most of these songs played after our ceremony when we had a champagne toast.


Is this the right way to quote a song lyric? Should the title of the song be in Title Case?


This is what I have so far. I might not use it all...


Song Lyrics


Where you are that’s where I want to be

And through your eyes are all the things I want to see

In the night you are my dreams

You’re everything to me

~ “Love of my life” by Dave Matthews featuring Carlos Santana


It's not always rainbows and butterflies

It's compromise that moves us along

My heart is full and my door's always open

You can come anytime you want

Tap on my window knock on my door

I want to make you feel beautiful

~ “She will be loved” by Maroon 5


How do you do it, make me feel like I do

How do you do it, it’s better than I ever knew

~ “Stellar” by Incubus


Won't you kiss me

On that midnight street

Sweep me off my feet

Singing ain't this life so sweet

~ “This year’s love” by David Grey


Where I go I just don't know

I might end up somewhere in Mexico.

When I find my piece of mind

I'm gonna keep you for the end of time.

~ “Soul to squeeze” by Red Hot Chili Peppers


It's a beautiful day

Sky falls, you feel like

It's a beautiful day

Don't let it get away

~ “Beautiful day” by U2


You crush me with the things you do

I do for you anything too…

Each moment, the more I love you…

Lovely lady, I will treat you sweetly

Adore you…

So much you have given love

That I would give you back again and again

Meaning I'll hold you

And please let me always

~”Crush” by Dave Matthews Band


Celebrate we will

Because life is short but sweet for certain

Were climbing two by two

To be sure these days continue.

~ “Two Step” by Dave Matthews Band



Pieces of our ceremony script


This beautiful setting should remind us that, like the ocean, human life is an ebb and flow- The life of the spirit and emotions- moves in cycles. To be in a relationship does not guarantee an eternal summer. To make a sincere and honest commitment does not promise, an end to all struggle. What a good relationship does offer, much like this ocean, is the opportunity for renewal. It recognizes the abiding, shared hope that after every winter, spring will come again.




Marriage has been described as living in love with your best friend. Love is one of the few constants in the universe. It is reality, affinity, and communication. Only love is capable of joining living beings by their deepest essence, uniting, completing, and fulfilling them.





Believe and trust that the words you have spoken have the capacity to create the marriage, family and life of your dreams, and that the rings you exchange will have the power to return you to your vows.



I give you this ring, as a sign of our marriage, and a lasting reminder, of the vows made between us today. I give you this ring, as a reminder that I will love, honor, and cherish you, in all times, in all places, and in all ways, forever.


I'll put the words of the hand ceremony on a page that has a picture of us during this part of the ceremony

These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and vibrant with love, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as he promises to passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness.

These are the hands that will work along side yours, as together you build your future, as you laugh and cry, as you share your innermost secrets and dreams.

These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes: tears of sorrow and tears of joy.

These are the hands that will massage tension from you neck and back in the evenings after you’ve both had a long hard day.

These are the hands that will comfort you in illness, and hold you when fear or grief engulfs your heart.

And these are the hands that when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.



These are the hands of your best friend, smooth, young and carefree, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as she promises to passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness.

These are the hands that will hold you in joy, excitement and hope each time she tells you that you are to have another child; that together you have created new life.

These are the hands that will hold you tight as you struggle through difficult times.

These are the hands that will comfort you when you are sick, or console you when you are grieving.

And these are the hands that will give you support as she encourages you to chase down your dreams. Together as a team, everything you wish for can be realized.

    • We just had a destination wedding and both my girls were flower girls!  The dresses from princessly were perfect!  Lots of complements! Would definitely recommend them!  Very reasonably priced.
    • I just want to say I got the best flower girl dresses on Princessly. It was very reasonably priced, they customized the dress to fit my daughter and it came within a couple of weeks. My daughter looked amazing and so did her cousin (who also wore the dress). The company was so easy to deal with and I’m so happy I chose them! Here are a couple of pics! 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
