Any 2011 Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Nicola,

Your dress is so lovely! 

Nan,

Only the white ones got rhinestones, the pink one doesn't.

 

I read on Zappos about how comfy they are, I guess they aren't made for the whole day walking and standing.  I will add gel pads. heehee but hey even the Cole Haan Nike Air ones aren't that comfy if I wear them and walk for 20 mins, so I guess I will bring a pair of platform flipflops for plan B.

Nan,

 

I put 2 hours everyday into wedding planning just like when I was studying for my CFA.  Sometimes just surfing on the net, sometimes cutting papers for my invitations and rsvp cards, sometimes making organza flowers for the corsage.

I may have found a place for shoes.(I am trying to find turquoise heels) Anyway living in Brampton there are tons of Indian dress stores and to my surprise they carry shoes to match all the beautiful bright saris, etc. Found a shop and will go back today to check the colors! Keeping my fingers crossed!

Lisa, the store I went to was in the little strip mall Steeles/Mclaughlin. They actually had about 4-5 styles of turquoise. But the only ones tall enough for me, were not cut to fit my foot. However they had some really nice green ones. They also had tons of really nice jewelery (mostly set with yellow gold tones-can't remember if you had white or yellow gold). So I didn't buy shoes, but I did buy some beautiful braclets ($10)! I will keep searching and let you know :)

Congrats on the bracelet purchase! I might check it out the next time I am there cause that is the exact mall where I get my eyebrows threaded! If i come across anything I will keep you posted also! Just finished my template for my table numbers and my placecards. And I think I have decided on my centerpieces too!!! Yay I actually feel like I have accomplished something in the last couple of weeks.

 

Question for ya! Was wondering if you knew anyone who can do a logo etching on shot glasses. I bought some the other day and wanted to get this done. If not I may just put a sticker logo that can be removed and then the guests can use them at home too without the personalization on them.

Unfortuantely I don't know where to get glass etched. The only thing I can think of is those engraving stores in the mall- Things Engraved.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
