Oh yes! It is a strange province. Here, a lot of divorced people, a lot of single parents, and a lot of re-constructed families. One of my former colleague who has 2 kids with different fathers, told me she enjoys the fact that she divided the kids with her ex, so she doesn't have to see/take care of her kids everyday...I almost faint, and I felt very sorry for her kids.
People tends to not get married, just live together...pop out some kids.
The strange thing is, Quebec is the first province recognize..common law..as a legal status (back in the 60s, living together before marriage was a taboo), but Quebec is the only province where common laws couples don't have the same legal status as Married couple..when it comes to separation! (i.e. when a woman "divorces", she can get half or get spousal support from ex hubby, but when a woman just broke up with her "common law" bf, she gets nothing!)

Wow, I can't believe that Bonnie. Can no one change their name at all? Or just people who are changing due to marriage? For example, I have a good friend (one of my BMs!) whose parents didn't give her a middle name, she just had a first and surname. She always hated that she didn't have a middle name, so a year ago she chose a middle name and legally changed her name to include it. Could she not do that in Quebec?

 

I'm not a huge fan of my fiance's last name, it's long and German, but I am still going to take it just because I'm a traditionalist. I'm a little sad though to be losing my short and simple last namesad.gif

Arrr Bonnie that is so sad you can't take FI's name..... I am really looking forward to having a shorter surname and i love the name Page. I actually like the name Paige for a girl. But i couldn't have Paige Page could I. Hee hee... so Scarlett it was, lol......

 

I think Next do some nice bits and i'm pleased as punch we have the suits sorted!

 

Yesterday we were thinking of music etc.... anyone got their first dance song yet? Me and FI don't have "a song" so finding it hard deciding. We like Amazed by lonestar but not 100% .....

We haven't decided on a first song dance yet. I have picked a few but FI's taste in music is so much different! Everyone I have him listen to he says "Yea I guess"...I'm looking for a better reaction like "YES THAT'S IT!" LOL not sure I'll ever get that reaction though!

 

My father and I will dance to I loved her first...can't think of the band off the top of my head right now. But I've had that one picked out for years now!

We also don't have "a song" and anytime one comes on that I think would be good, he just makes a face haha. So like FutureMrsYak, I'm still waiting for one that I get a good reaction from him on. Then again, I'm not sure that'll happen with any slow song. We'll see! Ideally I would love to "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Israel Kamakawiwo Ole. But I haven't sold him on that yet.

 

We haven't decided if we're going to do father-daughter and mother-son dances separate or at the same time. What are the rest of you doing? I kind of want to do them together, but my mom got upset when I mentioned that.

::sigh::
You aren't the only one don't worry! I have been out 3 different times to various shops and hated every minute of it. I was really frustrated that all the samples were a 16 and i'm a 2, so it's really hard to get a clear idea of what the back will look like, and how the dress will fit! The other thing i hated was that I had an idea of what I was looking for, but none of the stores seemed to have anything close! Very frustrating!

Next time I suggest taking one or 2 people, and make sure they want to be there helping you! That can make all the difference in the world! Good luck!

I went dress shopping for the first time last Friday, and I actually didn't mind it. I think I braced myself for hating it, haha, because I hate trying on clothes in stores, and it turned out better than I thought. That's awful that the samples were size 16, barbiegirl! I thought stores usually chose a more in-between size so it could give you an idea of how it looks on all size girls. I was lucky in that most of the dresses I tried on were size 8, and I'm a 4, but would be a 6 in a wedding dress. So I got a very idea of what they'd look like on. I also was lucky to have my MOH, mom, and groom's mom there, and all were VERY supportive people. Although if anything they were too nice, they said everything looked gorgeous haha. But the girl working at the store really helped me out by critiquing. I think it's important to have people there who will give their honest opinions, yet be very excited for you and make you feel good.

we dont have a first dance agreed on yet either as we dont have 'our song' - maybe this is all a myth and not many people have a special song.

We are not doing a mother / son dance or father / daughter dance - i dont really think this tradition crossed the pond as i havent seen this at any weddings i have been to - Michelle and Nicy will prob correct me here? LOL.

Everytime i mention a song he just looks at me blankly and says -'im not sure' - think this will be a last min decision on our part - FI really isnt fussed on this aspect at all.

We dont have a "song" either so havent got a clue what were doing yet I think I will leave this to Stephen as he is good with stuff like that.... need to bring this up yet but im sure he'll go for it :-) Will probably be decided the day before we fly out knowing Stephen!!! haha.

Not sure yet with Father-daughter, Mother-son dance yet, Hmmmmmm, not even thought about this until you mentioned it mexbride83!!!

Josietoms, I have heard of this father-daughter, mother-son dance but I dont think ive ever been to a wedding where ive seen it!!!! :-)

 

I was quite lucky with finding my dress (not bought yet) I just decided last minute after work one saturday with a friend to go look in a dress shop, no intention of tryng on etc, but i tried 2 on and the second one is "MY DRESS" i am greatful though as i dont think i could be bothered going round hunting, that was the part i was dreading....

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
