My puppy is a yorkie/maltese (morkie). His name is Eli and I have another dog, Cody who's also a yorkie/maltese with some shih tzu in him too. I treat them like they're my human children, which makes them spoiled rotten!! If I never have children, I'll be completely content being a dog lady haha.

We're just getting the last of our invitations out (gotta love when you don't get addresses for people that you need to invite!) so while everyone has received the RSVP link in an email, they might not realize what it is just yet! Oops!

 

I put up a little quiz/poll on our website just to get people a bit involved and I'm glad that I did! So far it's the only evidence I have that our friends have started to check out the site! There are about five places that I've asked people to leave messages and comments so hopefully as we get closer, or as more people start booking etc. we will see more activity. I hope the same goes for you girls!

Aww Shannon, how cute!! I love the name for your dog and the Gabbana for the future dog. My mom has a black and white shih tzu named Oreo, when we got him a brother (white bichon frise), I wanted to name him Milk but no one agreed sad.gif

I also left a quiz and a poll on my website. I also have an RSVP link and a guestbook. Although there's only a few responses on each, at least I know people are looking :)

Shannon - your little boy is adorable!! I love His name and the future name! Perfect! What woman wouldn't love those names!

 

Tonya - I totally think they should have named their second milk! that would have been hilarious!

 

Meghan & Tonya - I haven't really done anything with my website, I just did one up quickly on the weddingbells website but I don't like it so I haven't even sent the link around to anyone. Tonya I LOVE your website/homepage it looks awesome! I think I need to re-do mine when I find some time!! lol I should probably work out too!! lmao

Yeah we've had 16 people out of 80 Invites look at the website so far. Some have RSVP'd but most haven't even looked at it. I gave a date of Nov. 1 to tentatively RSVP and my family and friends are nortorious for waiting until the last minute... BUT there is an early booking bonus for people that put down their deposit by Oct. 31st so that's why I'm sending out the reminders (I love how they came out). I'm debating weather I should remove the privacy setting from our website... I think it makes it complicated for people to view ithuh.gif But since there is a link to book their room on there I wasn't sure if I should? What do you guys think?

welcome veronica!! i know what you mean about it coming faster than you expected! we booked our date 14 months out and now we're more than half way there and it feels like this all just started yesterday!

i also saw your thing about the privacy setting... if it's just a link to book their room through a TA or something like that, i don't think it has to be private. of course, if there is information on there that you don't want anyone else to see or use, by all means, leave it. i don't think privacy settings will affect anyone's decision to come or not.. at least i hope not!

isn't it true that 2 dogs are easier than 1? we had our border collie first and she was a spaz.. as soon as we got the other one she calmed down and now they can entertain each other! mine are for sure my children... my FI has a daughter and i get protective of my dogs when she yells at them! i joke that since he has her, they are my biological children and i am perfectly fine with that!

I agree with this big time. My dog was a bit of a terror when she was a pup- she's a rescue dog with a bit of everything in her, mostly Rottweiller, Retriever and Husky from what we can tell. She's medium/big, about 65 pounds. Once we got our second dog (FI's pure bred St Bernard, he'd always wanted one) she got so much better. She was a lot less demanding, and she's not lonely anymore when we're at work. Only trouble is when they play around it's like World Wrestling championships in my living room, so needless to say any breakable items are up pretty high.
They're like my children too- love them both.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • 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!
