      No problem - They are a super bargin and so many colours to choose from too :o) You can dress them up with ribbon etc and little tags! Perfect!

      Prettypigpig - great news on reserving your date! congrats!! One step closer ah!

      Well we visited our AHR again today and going back has confirmed we definately want it there. So now we just need to work on the price with the WC monday. Fingers x'd everybody! It's only on hold for one more week so we need to make our decision/deposit! Arrgghhh! Scary but exciting!

        Hey everyone thanks for your comments re: my dress. Just to have that extra reassurance it was a good choice.

        Bonnie - great news on reserving the date.

        With regards to Islepac one of my mates suggested them . Going to look into that idea. Tho joining this website has not helped keep my budget under control - i had never heard of an OOT bag before i joined now im obsesed with them and want to start shopping already! My other half just rolls his eyes - men just dont understand sometimes LOL :-)

          Ha ha, no i'd never heard of OOT bags before joining here either! And my FI does the same. He just rolled his eyes as i was reading out verses for the invite. He's so not bothered about those sorts of things, lol.

            Josie,
            I know...I didn't know about OOT bags, TTD session before. I was more like Linhy's friend, thinking of just book a package, send out the invitations and show up in a white dress!
            Now, I have on my to-do list: engagement pictures, website, STDs, OOT bags, welcome letter, invitation, gifts ...photographer, videographer..TTD session. My FI is just like.."tell me the final damage and I will transfer the amount to your account!"

              Me 2, and what a fab idea they are... haha.
              & as for the eye rolling, Oh Yes, I know this very well :-)
              Stephen cant be bothered with most of this kind stuff to be honest but in a way im glad as that way i get what i want!!! hehe x
              To be fair as long as he says "I DO" ..........

              And their is definatly more to this DW planning than i thought like you prettypigpig & Linhy's friend, I thought, book, invite, wedding...... :-) How wrong was I.... But all part of the fun though, makes it more exciting dont you think? x

              Michelle, Im pleased you have made a decision on the AHR. Let us know how you get on with the price.... If it really where you want then whatever you get it for it'l be worth it :-)

              Think im going to crack open the wine now and have a few after a long week :-) What are you all upto this weekend? Were just having a quiet one I think.....

                Now that I got a date and location. Snow is melting outside! I start to look at dresses.
                I took a look on the gilt.com, and LOVE that Alexander McQueen grecian style dress!! It is SOLD OUT!

                This one looks perfect for the reception! It is light I can eat all I want without worrying about...my expandable belly (my waist can go 2-3 inches more when I am completely full). I can try it on in Montreal too.

                This one is my dream dress...I will probably do a road trip to NYC or Toronto just to try it on.

                  prettypigpig, I love your dress choices. I favor flowy dresses also.

                    I've learned so much from this site, especially how to blow my budget. I love looking at everyone's idea, but its definitely a challenge not wanting to join in the fun. My FI always reminds me about our new house and that helps keep me in check.

                      I know! We got our house 2.5 years ago, and ...man there were a lot of ...unexpected/expected costs that came with the house. It adds up much more faster than a wedding...LOL!
