November 2011 Brides (or Grooms)

Recommended Posts

I am getting a bit anxious.  I have so much done but I feel like there are so many things going on before we leave (moving, bridal shower, legal paperwork) that it's getting me worried that I'm gonna forget something or be running around the last few days.  Thankfully we leave very late on a Mon night so I have all weekend to pack and double check my lists.  Oct is almost here!!  It will feel so close next month.  woot2.gif

I am definitely getting nervous now... I leave for Mexico in 5 weeks from Sunday! I have a lot of stuff completed already but still feel anxious about what I have left to do. I need to get my dress altered still! Luckily it just needs a hem and a bustle. Also need to get legally married. I was running around for hours today trying to find Jewelry and a possible reception dress...failed at both. I also need to get gifts for our parents and my future husband.  Oh and figure out what i want to do for table numbers/ place cards and a guest book.What do you guys have left on your to do list at this point?

Yea the gifts for all parents is tough.  We have 5 to think of.  And then I think well if we do them should I do by G-ma (only grandparent there)?  Well if we do her should we do the Aunts that are coming (no uncles around)?  Ugh!!  More stress  BangHead.gif

We have already told both sets of parents that when we get our professional pictures we will be making them photobooks as a keepsake.

We also plan on getting a picture of each family made into a canvas portrait.

For my parents I got them each a personalized wedding photo frame (for a pic after wedding).

Also got both mum's their wedding jewely.

Got the parents personalized OOT bags and added some extras other guests don't have (personalized t-shirts and such).

From this forum I got an idea from another bride for a personalized poem for MIL that I am having framed.

Oh and on the day itself we will pay for moms to have their hair and makeup done.

    • 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
