Kinda freaking out about my AHR also.It's July 2nd, we have 130 people coming and I feel like I haven't done anything yet and I am just counting on all the stuff I had down south and I am going to try and make the decorations work there but I won't end up having the same centerpieces on every table. Do you think that is bad?

 

 

I am supposed to have my professional pics tomorrow but I think he is going to be late which will leave me no time to develop or make a photobook and I am freaking out about this a bit. I may have to use guest pics ughhhh

 

 


Greece sounds amazing.  I sent you a FB request too so I can see these pics:)  What a fabulous place to celebrate a Bday!  I'm sorry you're also freaking out about AHR stuff.  No, I don't think it's bad to not have the same centerpieces on every table...in fact, NONE of mine matched!  Just go with it:)  Did you get your pics from your photog?!?

Erin, I'm sorry you've been sick!  I also have been a complete slacker and PROMISE to get those "l-o-v-e" plates weighed and pm you before this weekend.  Thanks for your patience:)  I've been enjoying not doing anything wedding related....apparently a little too much;)

Laura and Mocha, I'm glad to hear the AHR stuff is coming together for you! Ours is too.... mostly because I had a mental breakdown on Saturday morning and freaked out at my hubby because this AHR is in his hometown. I don't know 3/4 of the people going, and the 1/4 that is going I mostly don't like!! He hasn't once asked what needed to be done or if he could help and has no clue what is happening with it. There was just so much left to do and I was completely overwhelmed... so ya... I lost it. He was awesome though and sprang right into action getting things done. Right now he is en route to the cupcake store to drop off a swatch so they can match the icing!

 

For ladies looking for ways to display some sweets I found some awesome vintage plates and candle holders at Value Village that I'm gluing together to make cake stands (or in this case macron stands) Then I made a cupcake stand out of cardboard cake rounds, painted cans and vinyl drawer paper that matches the exact patterns on the escort cards! The place cards are actually mini flags that will be stuck into a mini galvanized pail filled with wrapped blue salt water taffy. Lots of sugar for a brunch but we purchased cupcake boxes from the cupcake place so people can take it all home.

 

I also made buntings out of rectangle lace paper doilies and blue ribbon that I can swag across the tent ceiling and ordered a printable guest book "tree" poster that people put their finger print "leaves" on out of ink. It was awesome actually. A girl on Etsy designed it for me, I sent the file to staples and it came out perfect. The whole guest book design and printing was less than $20!

 

Sorry about the info dump, the AHR is on Saturday so I'm just so anxious to get it all together!

How'd it go Meggers?!?  Great idea about the vintage plates!!

Here's my list so far if anyone has suggestions:

 

  1. Cupcakes
  2. Cake Balls
  3. Chocolate Dipped Pretzels
  4. Kettle Style Popcorn
  5. Homemade Marshmallows
  6. Macarons

 

 

 

 


What about chocolate covered strawberries?  I love those.  And I have a SUPER easy recipe to make them if you want it!!

We did a lot of talk/planning for our AHR yesterday and I feel a bit better now.

We got to go look at the hall again as it was all set up for an afternoon wedding.  They only had a setup for 60 people (we're going to end up somewhere close to 80) so it was nice to see that it didn't actually look to bad in the big room.  We're just going to spread things out by putting only 6 people per table.

As for centerpieces, we did find some vases at dollarama which we're going to go back to purchase.  Then we're thinking putting a layer of sand, some seashells and floating a large flower in them... maybe a green chrysanthemums perhaps?

I also bought some frames at dollarama (i think they're the same ones you got mocha) which we're going to use for the table numbers.  We didn't originally plan on doing a seating chart, but after discussing it, figured it would make things easier the day of.  I got some turquoise spray paint at michaels for the frames and for the numbers, I plan on just picking different photos from our trip/wedding and incorporating the number into them on photoshop.  And to finish up the tables, my mom and I found some sparkly turquoise jewel/stones which we'll sprinkle on the tables.  We're also going to have white chair covers just to keep things clean looking.

 

As for a cake, I've decided that I will make chocolate cupcakes and frost some in white butter cream and some in turquoise butter cream.  I found a wicked piece at Home Sense yesterday which I'm going to use as a cupcake stand, along with a few other cake stands and trays.  MIL also has some really cool conk shells and other big shells which we'll use to decorate the cake table and other areas.

 

We still have a lot to figure out, but with less than 2 weeks to go, I'm glad it's finally starting to come together a bit better.  It's going to be such a busy few weeks though. Can't wait till it's done and we can relax!!

Wow Laura, you've been a DIY queen for your AHR!  Please share some pics when you can!  And yes, it's so nice to unwind and relax once your AHR is over!!

 

 

 

 

Which of you girls got married at Now Jade?  I have a friend getting married there in November and couldn't remember which one of us April girls it was.  I hope you all are having a nice day!  It's 100 degrees here today.....and living in the midwest means I'm way to far from the ocean to enjoy it.

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
