    Oh, the other thing I thought was neat is that your AHR decorations matched your wedding decor! That way it was an extension of your wedding... and people can feel like they're a part of it!
    Will you post pics of you and your hubby?
    Did you have your honorary bridesmaids wear something special or how did you honor them? I am trying to figure that out.
    Did you make your slideshow/video yourself?

      Brings a BIG SMILE to my face to read that you married a down home BATHURST boy! I went to BHS myself for a year, but them we moved to Campbellton - the name should sound familiar, as you would have through it, but it was only 1 exit on the highway 11).

        My husband actually lived (and his family still lives) in Dunlop, just outside Bathurst. But he went to ‰cole Secondaire Nipisguit. I know the area pretty well as I've been there to visit 3-4 times a year for the past 5 years.

        Yes they all wore matching dresses. Just something they found for 35$ at the mall. I didn't post pictures because, I don't know, thought it would be weird if somebody they know sees the pictures or something! I know I posted pictures from the wedding but that was the wedding, much more important pictures! These are not professional pictures or anything. I only have one picture of me and my husband, with our dog! We didn't bother taking any others as we are wearing our wedding clothes and have a zillion wedding pictures so no point. I will add the pic of our dog to the first page though right now, along with a couple other photos of some of the details.

        The video is the one in my signature, done by playaweddings.com. The slideshows I did them myself with windows movie maker. Nothing fancy, just very basic. The hard part was choosing only like 100 wedding photos to put in the wedding slideshow!

        And yes, the decorations were mostly the same, didn't want to spend a lot of money so I reused the same stuff as much as possible. The centerpieces were new, and I had ordered way more tulle specifically for the AHR.

The DAY I told my dad we were engaged, and thinking about a DW with receptions back home, at the local golf course, dad gets really excited and says "OR..... we could have it in the new triple car garage at the lake! Now wait...I know what you're thinking... you don't want your wedding reception in the garage BUT it will be nicest and cleanest garage ever - brand new, painted all white, and I won't drive a car into it before the party".

          How could I say no to that?

          In his speech my dad said "first thing tomorrow all this frilly little tulle is getting pulled down and I'm turning this place into a man's dream garage". Sure enough, he didn't waste any time. He was so excited to set it all up once the party was done!

              Just printed what I wanted on vellum paper, then cut it to the size of the vases and glued it on.

              I did a few samples on plain white paper first to get all the writing where I wanted.

                  I love the pics of the planning- beautiful... I didnt read through everything... But I have to say.... Coming from a professional ballroom teacher- you did VERY well at the dance. The 1/2 moons in cha cha cha looked really good. and the end w/ the flips and the dip were awesome! Nice JOB!

                      Haha,how cute for you dad to volunteer his garage and keep it perfect till after the AHR. That was really sweet of him.
