January 2012 Brides!

Recommended Posts

So I am trying to finalize gifts for my parents and am having a heck of a time thinking of one for my mother. I was going to get her earrings and a necklace for the wedding day but then she told me she went out and bought some the other day. so now I am stumped. I got my dad this amazing Rotary watch that is a dual timezone (the middle part rotates and has 2 different faces) as they live in Canada half of the year then the US the other half so thought it would be handy. Here's a few pics:

mllek1986, for my mom I'm paying to have her hair done on the wedding day, but the day before I'm taking her to this spa in PV that's suppose to be really good. Also I was thinking of taking her to swim with dolphins, it's something she has talked about my how life and she has never had an opportunity to do so. Something that just the two of us will do and also after the wedding we're making wedding books for both sets of parents as a gift too. Just thought I would share what I'm doing. Does your mom like jewellery, you could still get her something like that to wear anytime?

I used the wedding wire seating chart maker, I need to make the cards or something though for the names! Ack, I didn't really think of that.  >.<

 

It's coming up so soon, I really need to get one that.  :D

 

25 Days, I really need to make a list, and get on it.  Eek.

hey brides.... totally off topic, but my fiance entered a video contest explaining why he has the best job in the world... unfortunately, the winner is based off of votes (hate those kind of contests-ugh) :) anyways, if you don't mind clicking the link below and voting, we would appreciate it... on another note, I have 41 days left! ahhhhh can't wait.. only thing left to do is programs and figure out how we can get these chinese wishing lamps to the DR (anyone else using those).... oh and I need to maintain my weight over Christmas so that I can still fit into my dress (eeek)....right now, I need to suck in twice to zip it but it fits like a glove

I got my Boudoir pics back!! And I love them!

Created a book on MyPictureBook.ca yesterday to give to G just before we leave (hopefully it comes in time!).

The photographer was my cousin who is still learning but does amazing portraits.

We also got his shirt and vest from studio suits in today! A week and half later!

Can't wait for hime to try them on!

 

I hope everyone is taking some time to enjoy the holidays and not stressing about the wedding.

Even though we leave in 2 weeks, I've decided to focus on Christmas for the next few days and enjoy the time with family.

In case anyone is looking for a playlist, here is mine (keep in mind, we are an r&b type wedding).  Anyways, dinner and dancing music only has some selections of music to give our dj an idea of what we want.  All of our specific songs are picked out except the introduction of the bride and groom since we are still trying to figure that out - anyways - hope this is helpful to someone as I've been stressing over this music for a while now...let me know if you have an amazing introduction song that is not Black Eyed Peas and preferably something I can shake my booty to ;)

Looks great!!  Luckily (or unluckily?) The FI started a new job last week, so he has to work through Christmas now.  Our friends that were supposed to come out decided they wouldn't come since he's working (night shift, so sleeping during the day), so its just me for Christmas! Hopefully I'll be able to get things done, then the week after I get to see all my family and such, so I'm not to worried about it. :)

 

Here is my favourite shot from my boudoir session

    • 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&amp;ga_search_type=all&amp;ga_view_type=gallery&amp;ga_search_query=personalized necklace&amp;ref=sc_gallery-3-9&amp;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.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
