mocha - glad to hear the shoot went well! :)  .. i heard that marry me song on The Bachelor the other day!!! hehe  we're still not sure what we're using yet. but last we talked we were thinking "Baby I Love Your Way" by Big Mountain because of the reggae vibe to it.

 

Erin - you're welcome! and thanks for checking my blog out! :)

 

As for FI's parents, deep down we're hoping that they'll offer to pay the majority of our AHR (since we're essentially having it because of them and their European idea that we are 'owed' gifts be so many people we don't know) lol .. we might just assign different people to take photos throughout the wedding day.

Laura, if you do a photo share account online, I'm sure you'll end up with some beautiful shots. Even some candid shots that you don't know people are taking can turn out to be the best.

Yeah that's what we're thinking. I opened up a dedicated PhotoBucket account last week and did my photoshare cards (which i got from Vista Print in like 3 days!)  we're not super picky so we think it will work out ok. There's enough people going too that i'm sure we'll get some good shots.  I just said to FI that no matter what, I want someone in my room taking shots of me getting ready.. the moment when my mom laces me up is definitely a moment that i'm going to want documented on film you know?

Train perfomed that song on the Bachelor on monday night and i totally fell in love with it! Such a beautiful song!!

 

Also about you worrying about your FI coming home while you were doing your shoot i'm going to be the same way, so im thinking of renting a hotel room for the shoot but FI is a major gun collector and i somehow have to figure out how to sneak out with some of his guns for some pics. PS its totally awkward to call hotels to ask if they rent hotel rooms by the hour , i definitely feel like a prostitute embarrest.gif

Hi girls - just in case anyone is interested - I get daily emails from diamondshark.com (one discounted jewelry deal a day) and today they have a diamond palm tree necklace for $19.  They only ship to the US though, so us Canadian ladies are out of luck smile27.gif

Laura - The photoshare should work out well then!  I can understand why you are hoping FI's parents take the bulk of the AHR, that totally makes sense!

 

So, what is everyone working on this week for wedding stuff?  It's Wednesday, so I figured it was a good check in point!! For me, two things I really need to get squared away are our luggage tags (which I've decided to buy from a lady on Etsy), and figuring out which flowers we are adding to the girls bouquets so I can get those ordered!

Maybe I can actually finish my luggage tags this week! lol I've been totally lazy and haven't gotten them done yet.  Now that I have my pre-travel brochures, I probably should get the tags done so I can mail it all out when I get the loops.

Teira - I thought about renting a room, but not sure if they would appreciate the photographers bringing in all kinds of lighting equipment! Umm... no, we're not making porn, they are tasteful boudoir shots for my future husband. That and you never know about how a hotel will be decorated. Might be okay for a high end hotel, not so great for anywhere else.

 

Wedding Tasks for the Week:

 

Individual mini tiered cakes for shower need to be iced and decorated,

BM dress shopping on Friday,

Hostess gift for shower,

Dress for shower,

Pick up FI's suit,

Pick up FI's ring hopefully it will be ready,

Maybe find dress for FMIL,

Make final menu decisions for private event

and try to pack for 10 weeks in the Canadian prairies!
