Thanks so much for the input ladies, as usually you all are brilliant. I think I'll source out some back ups this weekend and either pick them up if I can return them or put them on hold if possible. A big bummer is my moms personalized hanky, she cries just thinking about the wedding so I know she is going to need it!! Canada customs/post is the worst!!

 

Lisa your dress looks great! We all know I'm a fan of ruffles!!

 

Laura I'm glad to hear you're feeling a bit better. Sending get well vibes your way!

 

Mocha I'm so excited for you that you finally get to go home!!

 

Yesterday one of my gf's was in town from Vancouver who is coming to the wedding. Seeing her and talking about the trip got me so excited, that I didn't get a wink of sleep last night!! That plus the bottle of vino... I'm not feelin so hot today either! I have my annual review at work today... really hoping for lots more $$$!!! Oy,,,, so much going on!

I feel like I have been missing for the last week or so.  Work has been so busy with my three different bosses trying to get so much packed into my three weeks I have left at work, and they are not full weeks, thankfully!  I'm off today because I had to take FI to the hospital this morning for a procedure (nothing major)...  It's worked out perfectly though because we were back home by like 11:00, and now I'm just relaxing!  I've been have some problems with one of my eyes thanks to a contact messing up my eye, so it's nice to just hang out at home with my glasses on and not having to really go anyway else now.

 

Oh, and we are suppose to get a big snow storm tomorrow.  I'd like to think it's just an April fools joke...but I'm afraid it may not be!!!  We are suppose to get like 10" of snow...Doesn't mother nature know it's spring time?!

 

Anyway, I've been able to keep up with you ladies, I just haven't posted much.

 

Lisa, I really like your dress.  I think it came out nicely with all the different pieces you pulled from other dresses.  I think it's a great dress for the TTD session.  I really like the ruffles!!

 

For those of you feeling crappy, I hope you get better before you have to leave.  It seems like whenever I travel I'm sick...  I'm hoping not to get that way this time.

 

Mocha, I'm also really excited for you to finally get home!  You'll be able to get your ring back right??  I know you haven't had it for quite some time...

Erin, Yes! I hope FI isn't offended when the first thing I ask for is to see my e-ring and wedding band. Maybe I should get him to propose again at the airport!

Victoria - Have a fabulous time!  Cannot wait to hear about it.

 

With all you ladies getting sick, makes me think I need to start on the echinaccea so hopefully I will ward off any illness.  I think a lot of it has to do with the stress you are under and your bodies just aren't handling it well.  Bad timing though but the stress becomes more before it gets better.  My daughter just told me tonight she's getting a cold so I am starting her on it also.  But hers could be allergies as the pollen is picking up here.  I'll start my herbs in the morning as they typically help me.

 

Had my bachelorette party last Saturday night.  Great times.  We ate a wonderful italian dinner and then went to a drag show at a popular gay bar.   It's weird but they always make us feel safe and not like we are at a meat market as in a typical bar.  So much fun to hang out in.  If you haven't tried it, I recommend going to one if you are not easily offended by that lifestyle.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
