The 28th is definitely NOT set in stone!!! Really anytime that week is fine (I'm on March Break!). So we could meet up Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. Why don't we do midweek, Wednesday March 30th? Thoughts?

Now that we're done with the house, it's starting to sink in how close the wedding is. FI is on his bachelor party weekend right now! His friends took him to Kamloops for 4 days to hang out in a chalet and learn to snowboard. I'm actually enjoying having the time to myself so far, but it just feels so weird to not have him here :( And of course a small part of me is worried about what kinds of things might be going on...sigh...

 

Tomorrow I'm going for my boudoir shoot...I'm very excited, but also very nervous. I'm using Anna at Cineart in South Calgary, I'll be sure to let you know how it goes!

 

I would LOVE to meet up with you all on the 28th but I have a Monday night class at Mount Royal till mid-April :( I'm so sad to be missing out! I completely understand if you can't change it, but I thought I'd throw it out there that I can make it any other night that week! ;)

OMG I did my BD pics today, when I arrived the first thing she did was offer me champagne. I think that really helped to relax me, and I actually enjoyed the shoot! I used Belle Femme Boudoir photography, and Tricia was really great. I can't believe I actually convinced myself to do this, but I'm so glad I did.

We bought in Mount Pleasant! Great neighborhood, we are across from a park and it's super quiet but very central! :D Wow that's so great about the champagne! I had my boudoir shoot with Anna at Cineart today, it was a bit awkward, wish I'd had champagne to start! She did show me a few of the pics though and they were amaaaazing!!! Can't wait to see them all! The 30th would work for me! :)

Thanks so much ladies! I've been given a template for the Boarding Passes and Passports - I'll give that a shot first I think as I"m sure it would be cheaper - but it may not be worth the hassle

in the end...lol
Do you know if those Boarding passes on Etsy are like 'real' ones?  with the perforations?

Super-easy. I've ordered probably 75% of everything for the wedding (from robes as gifts for BMs to cake topper) from various Etsy vendors. Everything has turned out better than I'd hoped.

I did the same thing but was wondering if it was possible to have them printed at Staples!  Do they have good paper selection and which Staples did you go to?  For 20 bucks, I would LOVE to have them printed instead of having to do that myself!

I looked for Boarding Pass invites too online and I couldn't decide on any. I even went to a couple invitation stores in Calgary and they wanted like $500 + to make them....crazy. So I decide to attempt to make them on my own with a free template from Ayleebits. www.ayleebits.com/templates. It was pretty easy actually once you got going. I made them in Microsoft Word. I had them printed and cut at staples and it cost me about $20.

 

It is a little more work but I am really happy how they turned out. My fiance made envelopes for them too and they look awesome.

 

Good luck :)

One of the best wine selections in the city, and amazing appetizers! Lots of street parking nearby.

 

Can everyone throw me a PM so I have an idea of numbers?

We had them printed and cut at the staples in Country Hills. They will only use their paper, you can't bring them paper to print on. They have 3 types of white cardstock type paper of different thickness, we chose the medium one and it turned out great. They were mostly cut out, just had to round the corners. It was really cheap like $20 or $30 at the most.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
