January 2010 brides!!

Recommended Posts

OH MAN! I just found this thread Lisa! Just a couple of nights ago I was freaking out and had a panic attack! I could have swore I had a year to plan, and we're at the half-way mark, and I feel like I have so much to do!! I feel so stressed that my eczema is breaking out! But, this is what we have so far:

 

Things done:

-ordered bridal gown (ordered at trunk show in April)

-purchased TTD gown

-deposit placed for resort

-deposit placed for photographer

-booked travel/honeymoon

-bridal misc purchased=shoes, flip flops, hair flower, spanx

-purchased FI's suit

-misc OOT bag items=playing cards, personal fans, keycard/tip holder, beach towels

-finished some of DIY projects=program fans, shell bout's for groomsmen, "bling" strands for huppah decor

-purchased pail for flowergirls

-purchased shells for ring bearer

-purchased flip flops for unprepared guest for ceremony/reception

-boarding pass Save-the-Date's sent

-purchased MOH/BM gift totes

-emailed groomsmen to get fitted for linen suits

-engagement session scheduled for next week thursday (EEK! I'm so nervous about this!)

 

Things to do:

-LOSE 10 POUNDS

-Passport invitations

-DIY floral/floating strands for huppah decor

-purchase our wedding bands

-decide on flowers and table centerpieces

-purchase bridal jewelry=earrings, bracelet

-book welcome/rehearsal dinner

-purchase gifts for MOH/BM/GM

-choose songs and make playlists

 

My list can go on and on... this is just the tip of the ice berg of things I need to do! I thought I had everything under control!!

I did give my MOH and BM their choice to choose anything they want to wear, I gave them the color swatch, and let them loose. I trust my girls to choose their own styles. But I am a little worried that they have not started to look for their dresses, aqua and coral is a spring/summer color, and with our wedding in january, if they procrastinate, they won't find anything during the winter. GRRRRRR

But, I won't stress myself about that.. I have other things to stress about!

melette - don't stress too much over the BM dresses. Maybe just give them a little reminder, that's all! And look at your list that you've already accomplished, you've done tons already and that's great!! :)

She seems to think that Andrew and I need to pay for her entire trip for our wedding when she booked a master suite at the hotel...the same room category as the future hubby and I. Any advice?

I would politely tell her that you are happy to pay for her trip (even if you are not, I don't know the situation) but that she will have to accept a room in the normal category. You could offer to keep her in that room category if she wishes but that she will need to pay the difference between a regular room and a master suite. I don't think you are asking for much here, it's very inconsiderate for someone to book themselves in anything other that a basic room if someone else if paying for them. The nerve of some people :/

Hi everyone! I'm a January 2010 bride too! Well, I hope I am anyway. We still haven't confirmed the date yet. My fiance proposed last month and we are hoping for a VERY simple wedding. Turns out everything is much more complicated than I thought. I don't know the first thing about wedding planning. Eek!

 

But I have found my dress. So that's something. cheesy.gif

I remember when i first checked this site out and started planning our wedding and AHR it was very overwhelming ! i am still trying to figure out details. I thought a destination wedding would be an easy way out of the traditional wedding planning but since we decided on a reception at home it's basically like planning 2 weddings...LOL

    • 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!
