Krista's Planning Thread!

Recommended Posts

I want to start my thread by saying thank you to all the lovely ladies who make this forum a success and especially to Tammy for starting this all! This is such a great idea and you have helped so many brides!

 

I have met so many wonderful people on here who I never would have met otherwise. I want to say a special thank you to my Feb brides and my SB ladies who have helped me so much in these last few months – you ladies hold a special place in my heart! Without the support of you all I donâ€t think I would have made it through this whole process without freaking out! We will be getting married July 10, 2010 at Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa in the Mayan Riviera.

 

My engagement story: My FI came to Korea four months after I moved there to teach English. He proposed on the first night he was there. I was so shocked since he had purposely thrown me off the idea of getting engaged since he wanted it to be a surprise. My reaction was "Are you serious?" and he still teases me about that to this day! LOL! :)

 

Here are some of the details:

My invitations were DIY (bought the boxes of them at Staples and Michaels) and I printed/decorated them myself:

Our rings: My engagement ring was designed by my FI and made by his dad (who is a jewellery maker), and my wedding band was custom made by his dad to fit my e-ring. FIâ€s ring was purchased and a few changes were made by his dad to suit FIâ€s tastes.

My photographer is coming from “home†with us. She is actually from Louisiana so we have never met. Itâ€s a long story, but our original photographer from Louisiana was recommended by a good friend of ours who we met in South Korea. She got pregnant and her due date is 3 weeks before our wedding, so she found another substitute to go in her place. It actually worked out perfectly because I love the new photographers style and Iâ€m super excited to meet her and work with her! Her site is Kaylynn Marie Photography

 

For our ceremony, itâ€s a legal one, but we are adding our own vows and we are having a hands reading. The ceremony will be all white (chairs and gazebo) with just dark pink petals on the walkway.

Since we have a small group coming with us (13 people), we are opting for the free wedding package that dreams offers.

We are going to buy Maracas once we are down there for favours, and also to bring back as favours for our AHR, which will be quite large (100 people) who couldnâ€t come to Mexico.

 

Invitations for AHR:

This is my centerpiece inspiration I will use for our AHR. I will use hot pink roses and use our wedding colour ribbons to decorate the square vases. Then there will be votives around them.

Well thatâ€s it for now! We leave on Monday and I look forward to posting pics and writing my review when we return!

    • 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?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
