December 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

Jacki7896,

 

All I have done is the STD and bought a dress too! I don't think I have anything to do for a while...We started booked our travel, but that's it.

 

Have you asked anyone to be bridesmaids ? I'm afraid some of mine will get pregnant between now and then and I'm not sure when to ask them

Marlena,  I did ask 2 people to be bridesmaids, I am keeping my wedding party very small.  The matron of honor already told me she wouldn't order her dress for awhile because she wanted to make sure she wasn't pregnant.  A lot of my close friends have called recently to say they cannot make it because they are pregnant, so I guess it is good I did not plan on a larger wedding party.  It is definitely a concern!  I got engaged in August 2010, so I decided I had to at some point start asking people to be in the wedding party otherwise it just seemed weird.  But I think you definitely have time to wait to see what happens over the next few months.

I'm thinking about asking my girls this week. Our travel agent wants us booked by Feb. 15th, so those who've booked are going to be there ! (hopefully) and then I can sort out my bridesmaids. I guess since it's not too formal we can get dresses somewhere downtown Toronto. There's endless shopping here!

 

I would like to have 4 in total. I know we will have 4 groomsmen, so I guess I wait and see who books this week!

Quick question for the December brides....   I already sent my Save the Dates, with information about booking the hotel etc.  My question is when to send the actual invitations.  Any thoughts?

hey everyone! So we are also planning to have our wedding in Dec 2011. so far we are aiming for the 10th but we cannot set a date untill my FI finds out about a possible job opening in April! this is frustrating... im so excited and i just want to set a date and book already haha. the only thing that i have is my dress!!!! i bought it 3 weeks ago and i accidently sumbled upon it. i cant wait untill it comes in for fitting. is anyone thinking about the DR? thats where we are thinking because the prices seem to be lower for our guests. I found the Ocean Blue & Sands resort and i think that is my #1 pick right now. has anyone else looked at it?

Jacki,

 

I'm thinking about sending out my invitations in August. I think that gives everyone who didn't book by our group rate date (feb 15th)  time to organize themselves to get time off work, expense etc. Hopefully, we can organize some engagement party over the summer and invite everyone who is coming to the wedding to meet everyone else. (my family lives 3 hours away from the city, so it would be nice for them all to get together before we go) and a bridal shower in september.

 

Most people do an after party, but getting married in December...by the time we get home, it's snowing,  we go back to work...we're putting up a christmas tree and then it's new years. I think a summer pre-wedding party is a good idea!

Hello ladies! 

 

I'm getting married December 6th at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites, Montego Bay. I ordered my STD's and got them last week, but have yet to send them out. Most of our guests will be family so everyone already knows about it. Unfortunately some more extended family members have taken it upon themselves to decide they're coming without an invite....agh! So we have to sort that out and decide who else we have to invite if these people come.

 

I also bought my dress just this last week!!!! I love it but have had so much worrying about it since I had to try on one that was a couple sizes bigger, so it's hard to tell how it will look when it fits perfectly. But.... I went back to try on the two I was deciding between and when I put the one on that I thought I wanted, the song I want as our first dance came on. Plus, I went back today to get a fabric swatch, and they told me the sample of the dress I tried on and decided on was actually bought RIGHT after I came back the second time to try it on. I'll take it as a sign that I happened to come in to try it on right before the sample was sold. ;)

 

Other than that, I've just done lots and lots of looking at magazines and forums! And I'm booking my makeup artist today. I decided and jumped in! Making some of those decisions is just so hard this far in advance, but I need to start going for things.

 

Nice to meet you ladies, hope we can help each other! cheesy.gif

Marlena... August sounds like a good time to send invites.  I did a site visit this past weekend and got most of my stuff booked (florist, cake, music, etc.).  It is just a relief.  Plus the FI is super happy to not have to look at centerpiece ideas anymore....

 

For those of you getting married in Negril, the Floral Fantasies woman was AMAZING.  Their website leaves a lot to be desired, but having met with her in person-- she is great.  She took the vision I had in my head that I was not really able to articulate and made it a reality.  Super happy, so I highly recommend them for those getting married in Negril.

Jacki,

 

The site visit is a great idea! I don't think we are going to do that though, we've had some people that I work with that have been to the resort we are getting married at and say its fantastic! I hoping to go with the steel band for the day for our music!!

 

I bet its a great relief to have all of your stuff booked!

We booked a steel band for our ceremony music; not sure which one, just whatever the hotel recommended.  If your hotel does not have a specific recommended or preferred band, let me know and I can our coordinator!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
