Hey, thanks so much for the reply.

Congratulations by the way! You must be so excited that it's getting close! Looking forward to the review :)

Quick question: I talked to Ivis today and she said that I HAVE to book through their TA to be able to get the group benefits (like the free cocktail party and/or reception). When you booked through Beach Bum Vacations, did they give you the group benefits or no?

Thanks again!

Well, I'm trying to muster up some energy to go to work tomorrow.  I have been sick for the last few days.  Well I didn't manage to finish the DIY project that I was working on for our welcome dinner (a little pop of color) but I did manage to puppy proof the house for Cesar's arrival on Saturday.  One of you should have sent a virtual smack and told me to wait until after the wedding because I have already spent well over a thousand bucks for a dog that ain't even here yet. wtf.gif  but excited nonetheless.  Here is a picture of Cesar who now weighs 10lbs 14 oz .  Expect an update sometime on Sunday.  I'm off on Monday and Tuesday to make sure the little bugger is comfortable, to do some shopping with him and vet visit.

During the welcome/intro of the ceremony, the officiant will say:  Each of your family members and friends here today has chosen a shell that not only represents their unique individuality and their presence at your wedding today but also has a meaningful word on it that represents a value youâ€d like to honor in your marriage together.  You also each have a shell of your own that symbolizes your previous separate lives, separate sets of friends, separate families, and the different lifeâ€s journeys that you once traveled.  I ask that everyone hold this shell throughout the ceremony.  Fill your shell with positivity, prayer, wishes, and blessings of good will for Casey and Tammy… for the future of their marriage. 

 

Later, after the vows and rings have been exchanged, the officiant will say:  We will now pause to collect the shells that have been blessed with good fortune.

 

The union of these shells has now symbolically joined your once separate lives. Through you, just as the shells have been combined, so now are your friends and family joined. Your once solitary lifeâ€s paths are also now one, and all that was once separate is now shared. In this sharing, you both will find new strength and joy as together you forge a new life path. Shells stand the test of time. Over time they can even become stronger and more beautiful. Let these shells be a reminder and a memorial of the love, blessings and support that your family members and friends have provided you here today.

The chest will be filled with sand with the shells on top. :)

Wellll 3 months today I will be standing on the beach saying I DO! I need some serious DIY motivation because my list is long and my time is short! I keep joking with my FI saying jeez I know why people have kids after they get married... I have no spare time with 2 little ones running around. I also need a bustle put in to my dress... I havent even been back to the store to try it on. Where has the time gone??????

 

On another note, my nana passed away new years day and I would like to include something in memory of her...I know people have posted some of this stuff but I never looked closely because I didnt think I would need anything :( Is etsy my best bet for a small memorial charm?

    • 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
