Welcome to site Mishi. I'm getting married in Cabo in June and it looks like only my immediate family and one aunt and 2 friends on my side. The rest of the 50 guests are friends and family of my FI. sad.gif oh well, we'll have a blast anyway.

 

I'm sure your wedding is going beautiful. I can't wait to hear more about it.

You guys rock!!! Thank you for such a warm welcome smile03.gif

I am doing a simple wedding on the beach and honestly didn't want to get involved in all of the details. Being just our family, I really didn't care what the flowers or the cake looked like. But my wedding planner insisted I give her ideas, and now getting closer I am glad she did. I love the idea of a simple white wedding with little bursts of flowers in bright colors. So, I chose my favorite combo of retro blue and green. Since it is a tropical wedding there is no problem finding flowers and rocks/glass etc in these colors.

My dress is really simple and I love it. I have lost 70 pounds over the last 9 months and am wanting to lose about 20 more before we go. So, when I ordered my dress, I had no idea what to order, but when I got it in last week, it fit! It is a litte tight but will look fabulous with another 10-20 pounds gone. So, that is very rewarding and I can't wait to show it off. I will try to insert a pic here.

I tried to stay pretty thrifty in what I bought and didn't do anything extra... except we are having a 5 minute firework show over the ocean at the end of our first dance as Husband and Wife, so that will be incredible.

We also wanted to make it very personal so we are using "our songs" for the ceremony instead of traditional wedding music, so I will be walking down the aisle to our song "We Belong Together" by Gavin Degraw. I also have been keeping the dried rose petals from every bouquet my fiance has ever given and wanted to incorporate them somehow. So, I was thinking about making sachets out of them for all of the guests and sometime during the ceremony going to the cliff and having everyone toss them in the ocean simultaneously. I don't know... if you have any other ideas or thoughts about this let me know. It sounds romantic, and I think would be beautiful in a pic but how it would be in person I am not sure.

I could go on forever and ever but I honestly cant wait to read you guys' ideas and details, so if you think of anything tips that you have heard or any must do's/don't please PM me or post.

Thanks again girlies!!!

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
