There is a snow storm today..with 20 cm of snow on top of my car..not sure if I wanna go out! lol

Since some guests are anglophones, some are francophones, every part needs to be bilingual.

I added a page with activities in PDC with pictograms!!

As with all the rest of your things... your invites look awesome! and bilingual! now you have to add a Spanish dictionary for the important words!! PICANTE-spicy; cerveza-beer, please- per favor and most important NO GRACIAS-NO THANK YOU. LOL

LOL! Nan..That is a great idea! Except, my FI's family members are spaniard descendants, so they do speak Spanish.  On my side, me and my siblings when thru high school with international program, so we all took basic Spanish.  French and Spanish are from the same Latin root, so most of the Francophones can decode Spanish.

thx Nicola

it is a lot of work and hours of photoshop, but it is worth the effort, since they are so unique.

The pic at the background of the boarding pass was taken on a beach at Isla Mujeres after my swim with the whale shark trip.

Your wedding is going to be really "international". My wedding guests are also from different parts of the world, and now, looking at your invites I´m thinking about making a bilingual version.  Someone  in the May thread asked about  how much time in advance  she should  have her    dress in to be altered. I don´t know. I´m thinking that if I get really stressed I might lose some weight. When are you having yours altered?

Nicola,

They are super cute! I find DIY invites are really unique and present the character of the couple pretty well.

 

Nan,

I sent out my invites like 7 months in advanced, because the hotel that I picked usually get sold out 3 months in advanced.  Plus, apparently the 1st week of July is a high season for honeymooners.  Since I got engaged in Nov 2009, and told everyone that I want a DW in PDC since my engagement...everyone had sufficient time to save up.

As for alteration, I don't think I will need it, since I am already thin to the bones, and my dresses are custom made.  If I loss weight, I will just add a corset to beef me up! lol

OK, you can say I may gain weight, but since I don't like to eat rice, bread, pasta..cereals and most of the fruits since I was a kid (oh yes, I am a picky eater),...without white carbs and fruits, it is very hard to gain weight. I already cut my daily HagenDaz...so it is pretty hard for me to gain weight.

Bonnie:

Nicola:

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
