Has anyone made or ordered their invitations yet?


We have an appointment after work tomorrow to look at some designs, I'm so excited to pick something, I really hope her prices are reasonable.


Curious to see where everyone else is with this process. I hope to have exciting news to share about them tomorrow!

So far I have -


Bought my dress

Bought my veil and garter

Booked the resort and airfare, and organised a group deal.

Sent STDs with all the trip info (really more of an invite)


Yep, I really haven't done much.

OMG you are all way ahead of me!!


We finally got confirmation from my little sister (the MOH) as to when she can escape from med school for the wedding ... so now the work begins!!


So what do I have done ...

- I have my dress

- we know where

- we now know when

- we know who we're inviting

- we have enough aeroplan points to get us there and back for cheap

- we have picked out the rings


So lots of planning has been done, now we can implement it all!

Ok, so I think I may be the most behind April bride there is!


Our wedding date is April 11, 2009. Here is what I've done so far:


1. Made a deposit with the location

2. Verbally told family/friends and bridal party

3. Ordered and received STD's


Yeah... so I've got a loooooong way to go. Feel free to poke fun at me... ;-)

Hi Ladies!


Just working on making our invitations, I used the boarding pass idea and found a great free template at Aylee bits » DIY: Boarding Pass Invitation / Save The Date


They worked out perfectly, and for 25 invites I spent a total of $25 including envelopes, the cutting tool and the perforator tool. And, got to have some fun with it!! :-)


Here's a picture of how they turned out, and some pics of my dress ...


Take it easy,

Great job!!!!


My FI dad passed away almost 4 weeks ago today so I feel like we are at a standstill.

I've actually picked bridesmaids dresses and changed my mind on my dress this past week (he doesn't know any of this) but as far as anything else... nothing.


I've even asked him if he wants to postpone the wedding. He says no but at the same time I don't think he's ready to start talking "wedding" againhuh.gif

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
