Recommended Posts

Ladies- Thank you so much for all your support and ideas. I definately could not have done any of this without this forum. You all rock!

Pull up a chair this is long....

 

Oh yeah If I forget to thank someone specific - I'm sorry but I am exhausted, I just finished packing and a car is coming in 5 1/2 hours. woohoo!

 

*Tammy thanks for starting this forum it's so helpful and there are some real gems on here. I am so greatful.

My Ring- This is not on my hand but all the ones that were on my hand looked awful so this is on the jewelry designer’s hand. She had better lighting I guess. It’s a Montana Sapphire surrounded by 2 diamonds on a platinum band. This is the photo she sent him before he decided on it. He knew that I wanted an alternative ring and it was important for me to have conflict free diamonds so this was perfect. I adore it.

DIY Invite - This was a project! T and I laughed a lot and almost strangled each other during the process but in the end we were thrilled with how they came out and I wouldn’t have it any other way. (He says he would just pay but…) I am so glad that we saved a few $$ and once again realized what a great team we are together. A big thank you to all who helped along the way especially Andi!

Luggage Tags- Thank you to Jen (can't remember forum name)for your template! After scouring MANY dollar stores in NYC with no luck, we bought SCOTCH self laminating bag tags off Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more . We didn’t think of adding guest addresses beforehand and realized since these are laminates that they would then have to be written by hand. We had Kinko’s print out the inserts. Do it on your own if you can. We had issues with work printers and the photos. There is an inexpensive way to do this- but this wasn’t it. I am happy with how they came out though.

The tags went out with out Month before letter. No Brochure for me. I got too overwhelmed trying to design that thing. Kudos to all who do!

Dadâ€s Hat- I made this for my dad on Hats and caps at lids.com He always wears bucket hats when we are on vacation so I thought it was appropriate. It will go in his OOT bag. I think he will get a kick out of it.

My dress- Maggie Sottero “Montereyâ€. Bought at Lilletteâ€s Bridal on Long Island. They were awesome when I bought the dress but I hated that it took so long to arrive. It was really crazy. I ordered it in August and i didn't have a first fitting till April. This is me at the fitting. Horrible pic- you can't see the back which is so pretty. corsette. The seamstress was working my last nerve at this point.

Big shout out to KLC77- Thank you!

 

FI's gift- BD book. I used a silver paint pen on the black pages and wrote a poem about us and also inserted love quotations throughout. He loves poetry and it is something that is big with us. I also found this sexy poem by Marge Piercy that i will share with you. I used this as well.

Implications of One Plus One -by Marge Piercy

 

Sometimes we collide, tectonic plates merging,

continents shoving, crumpling down into the molten

veins of fire deep in the earth and raising

tons of rock into jagged crests of Sierra.

 

Sometimes your hands drift on me, milkweed's

airy silk, wingtip's feathery caresses,

our lips grazing, a drift of desires gathering

like fog over warm water, thickening to rain.

 

Sometimes we go to it heartily, digging,

burrowing, grunting, tossing up covers

like loose earth, nosing into the other's

flesh with hot nozzles and wallowing there.

 

 

Sometimes we are kids making out, silly

in the quilt, tickling the xylophone spine,

blowing wet jokes, loud as a whole

slumber party bouncing till the bed breaks.

 

I go round and round you sometimes, scouting,

blundering, seeking a way in, the high boxwood

maze I penetrate running lungs bursting

toward the fountain of green fire at the heart.

 

Sometimes you open wide as cathedral doors

and yank me inside. Sometimes you slither

into me like a snake into its burrow.

Sometimes you march in with a brass band.

 

Ten years of fitting our bodies together

and still they sing wild songs in new keys.

It is more and less than love: timing,

chemistry, magic and will and luck.

 

One plus one equal one, unknowable except

in the moment, not convertible into words,

not explicable or philosophically interesting.

But it is. And it is. And it is. Amen.

 

I stumbled upon this poem and had to include it.

 

I'm so sleepy. I gotta go!

 

p.s I resized these images and I am not sure why they are still coming out so large. ugh. I will try again. sorry about that!

everything looks amazing! i love the poem in your BD book, and really love that you made a hat for your dad (especially since he wears bucket hats -- he will love it!).

 

and OMG, what luck that the table number you chose to show was 4 ... as soon as i saw the pic, i realized it: i spelled cuatro w/a "Q" on mine, which means it's wrong on all of table 4's escort cards as well ... aaaahhh! and i should know better, as i took a few years of spanish in high school. wtf? have to blame that one on wedding-brain too! thanks so much for posting ... now i don't have to have a 6 year old call me on it at the wedding, lol!

 

your wedding will be amazing i'm sure. everything looks wonderful!

    • 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
