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!

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... ;-)

Awww you're doing fine, plenty of time. You should start dress shopping soon though. If you don't buy off the rack, it can take 5-6 months to come in.

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

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • 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.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
