November 2011 Brides (or Grooms)

Recommended Posts

Carrie and Sarah -

 

Both of your photos are fantastic! 

 

Sarah - You are certainly still rocking that dress and the beach/cliff backdrop was gorgeous.

 

Carrie - Your review was great and how lucky that it rained for a bit so you ended up getting the reception location that you actually wanted.  And I LOVE that picture of the two of you walking back down the aisle with the sunlight and the colors - awesome. 

 

I hope everyone gets all of the photos they want for you AHR.  I had mine in time to put them into a slideshow (with all of the standard pics of baby through embarassing teenage pics) and we got so many compliments.  You will hear over and over that night how beautiful it looked and how much people wish they were there, etc.  Worst case, if the pics aren't in right before your AHR, email the photog and see if they will email you some of the unedited photos.  Unedited would definitely be better than nothing!

So how are all of the November brides holding up?

 

My husband decided to test out the whole "in sickness and in health" thing very early in our marriage.  Today is my first day back at work after a weekend trip to the ER resulted in an emergency appendectomy for my husband.  All I can say is thank goodness 1) that this didn't happen a month ago when we were in Mexico and 2) for good health insurance (though there will still be a very hefty out of pocket charge).

 

I hope everyone is doing well and are happily preparing for your first holiday season as a married couple. 

 

BTW - we couldn't resist using a wedding picture for the front of our Christmas cards:

Ouch. I hope your hubby is doing well after the trip to the ER! Indeed, thank goodness it didn't happen last month! That's a great Christmas card! Beautiful. 

 

We just celebrated our 3 year anniversary, which also was our one-month wedding anniversary. cheesy.gif Things are going really well and we are looking forward to the holidays with our families and friends. We are also still waiting on all of our pro-pics and video from the wedding.....Hopefully we'll get it soon because the photographer said he was mailing them soon. Our parents are more anxiously awaiting them than we are I think. Ha ha.

 

Can you believe how time flies?!? Happy one-month anniversary to all the November brides who got married on the 14th and prior! And happy almost one-month to those who got married after the 14th! cheers.gif Hope your holidays are joyful and blessed!

Sorry to hear about the ER incident. Hope he is feeling better.  Beautiful Christmas card!!!

I would love to do that but I really want to use a professional pic and I won't have those in time.  Still thinking about it.

 

So I did something pretty dumb and wanted to share with you ladies for a laugh.

D and I were trying to be efficient when it came to the AHR and invites.  We didn't have our accurate guests lists yet so we figured 150 guests allowed on the yacht - lets order 200 invites to be safe.  When we got them all we went and bought 200 stamps and 200 postcards stamps for the RSVP cards.  Then we stuck them on every envelope and every postcard.  We felt so good that we got that done and out of the way.  Then we actually took at look at our guest list and finished up getting addresses.  When everything was done and the labels were ready to be printed I did a count of how many we needed....95.  Yup just 95 invites are needed and I have 200 invites, 200 stamped envelopes and 200 stamped postcards.  We did that a$$ backwards wouldn't you say??  LMAO!!  What a waste of money....so stupid!!  Oh well.

 

We went to see the yacht last night that we are having our reception on.  Its so pretty and is decorated for Xmas right now.  I got some great ideas for centerpieces.  :)  It made me a little bit more excited about having to do this all over again.  We are having an all out formal wedding reception and we will be watching the ceremony video so its pretty much the whole thing repeated.  Good Times!!

Thanks ladies!! They did such a great job...especially David! We plan on doing the dance as our entrance for the reception. Should be a hit.

Wishing all my fellow November brides a very merry Christmas. Hope you and your new hubby have a wonderful holiday!

All the best for 2012 and hope we can continue to check in and out on here for updates.

Still waiting on pro-pics in January and will post a few here when I eventually get them.

Also have to re-do my planning thread that I had been updating for months and months ...... my hard drive crashed and died on me a few weeks ago, total disaster. Will post once I get it done AGAIN!

 

Happy first Christmas to all the new Mr & Mrs!!

    • 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
