The wedding date is April 23rd! Good memory
Hair at 230, Make up at 330, Ceremony at 5pm, Reception at 6pm
Emma just sent a package of different centrepieces, totally different then the ugly ones she first sent me. They're still not perfect, but its a good cost savings, and I think she'll let me make a couple adjustments. I've sent the package off to my BMs, and asked them to vote on them:) We're getting our menu finalized by the 18th (we just updated our website and asked guests to choose ahead of time), so everything is coming along:)
O my goodness, how do these boys not have their cloths together yet! This is madness! I"m going to let C. wait until April 1st (ish), since more summer cloths will be coming out then. I"m hoping they can find a nice fitted shirt and a pair of dressy linen pants. Hopefully something they can wear again. All guys can do with a white shirt, and the linen pants won't add up to do much, so I'm thinking they'll probably purchase.
We decided to go with Paradise Catamarans. Its costing about 3k, so its taking a big chunk out of our budget. We're saving in other places though (my dress, not getting an outside vendor for flowers, not doing other give aways for guests).
I really like the idea of going to China town to pick them up. I might try to go down and do that. My only hope with the Michaels ones was that I might be able to somehow print on them. I don't want to handwrite (and my writting's not very neat) 60 fans. It would be better if there were one's I could print out with an online template (like avery). Im not to sure that's going to work, but I might go peruse Michaels this weekend and see what the possibilities are. I"ll let you know if there are any good options when I find out, and I'll find out pricing. What did you say your colours were?
I haven't gotten my jewellery, and I'm really nervouse about it. My dress is really simple, so it needs some mega jewellery! I"ll make my sister help out with that too. There's this amazing jewellery store in Victoria, so maybe I"ll go stay with my friend there and do some shopping. I don't have shoes either. Period. I don't have shoes for the ceremony or reception. I was thinking of getting wedge heals, something easy to wear, has height, breathable and still fancy enough for the wedding. The place I bought my dress at had these shoes I tried the dress on with and they were great, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to find anything like that. That's two good things you have just added to my list though, thanks!
I'm actually not sure of what we're doing for cake. I"m not sure if we're doing one... Maybe just small cake for 20 people or something? Just something to cut through? I just brought it up with C. and he doesn't seem opposed, so I'll ask Emma about this. Three things you've added to my list, eck!
A friend is going to Brazil right before the wedding, so I'm going to ask her to pick up some personalized Haviana Sandles for us (with little jewelled starfish or something, in orange for the girls, teal for the boys). I was thinking of maybe getting them a little necklace from
Im so glad to hear that everything is coming together for you also. I know its coming up fast!! Eeeekkkk.
I totally know where you are coming from with loosing track of emails. When i go back to look for something it takes forever to find it. I wish that i had properly named each email differnt, instead of just reply and not changing what each one was about. Now im just starting to pring everything and keep in a folder. I will go over what i need to bring with me as it gets closer. What is your wedding day again?? Is it April 23?? Im sorry I forgot.
As for my fiance and his groomsman they have also yet to go figure out there apparel. I told them they have till the end of this month to figure it out..lol. I told them to just rent there pants and for S. to rent his suit, and I got a discount for a tux shop when I was at the Wedding fair this past weekend. And our rings too, we need to get going on that also. Time is a ticking, and its going to go by fast. I would like to have everything done by the end of Feb so that I can be stress free and enjoy whats to come.
Yes, your decorations do seem simialar to mine. Beautiful and simple. I am using the Jalisco room. I am not a fan of the carpet but it was the lighting that i love. It just goes so well with the romantic theme im going for. That catamaran sounds amazing. How muchie was it? And what company did you go with? I would love to do something like that for after the wedding. Cause we are doing a welcome night ( dinner and cocktails in one of the lobbys) and thats where I am hopinf it give everyone a chance to get to know each other.
I love what you are doing with the place cards and fans. That is going to be great!! I dont know if I want to start something like that, I feel like i already have too much on my plate, i just dont think that I will have the time. I did not know that Micheals sells the fans, I was going to go to chinatown cause I heard they were cheap down there. Do you know hoe much they are at Micheals. I would rather just go there and save myself a trip downtown.
I tried to find the spreadsheet you mentioned but couldnt find it. Do you think you could email it to me. (firstname.lastname@example.org) That would be wonderful.
I am getting so nervous and anxious. It is coming up fast. My MOH is in the process of getting my stagette and 2nd shower together (we had a family one this summer, now i want the dirty one..hehehe) What are doing for your stagette?
I am started to get a little overwhelmed with the things I still have to do. But i know that I still have time. I just feel like there really isnt alot of time. But I need to start doing something every weekend. We still have to finsh the music, which my sister is working on, get our rings, the grooms and gromsman stuuf, my jewlery, my after party shoes, BM and GM gifts, some items that we are going to use to make the garter toss funny, cake topper, order shot glasees and on and on. Just all the small stuff, but alot of small stuff..lol. What are you getting your BM's?
Emma is def on her game. I love it! I think everything is going to go great. I am sure there will be a coupld snags but thats ok. As long as the majority of the day is good than thats all we can ask for.
And no worries about the mentioning that the DJ was included, it did cause a little confusion, but i just figured that it was something the gave to ya. I have noticed that each WC gives differnt things to each bride. Its weird and kinda not fair but there really isnt much we can do. I dont want to start asking questions and rocking the boat, because things seem to be going smooth for me right now, and I dont want to mess things up..lol.. you know what I mean.
