Our April 2011 Moon Palace Wedding * Lots of Pictures on Pages 1, 3 & 5*

Recommended Posts

As promised, here is even more pictures:

 

Welcome Bags:

I purchased several orange tote bags from Michaels just after Halloween to be used for our OOT bags. I printed our logo onto iron-on paper and am really pleased with the results. Here's a picture of everything that we have put in the bags; first aid kit, tums, pepto bismol tablets, lip balm, shout wipes, aloe, emergen-C, lens cleaning wipes, aloe, mints, gum, flossers, nail files, hand sanitizer, flip flop playing cards, key card holder, photo share magnet, welcome note and photo share card. I am so thankful that I was able to purchase the flip flop cards and most of the first aid kits from another BDW bride that actually lived close by.

Here's a picture of some of the bags laid out for packing. After I packaged somethings in ziploc bags, I made paper tags and attached them with my new life saver, spray adhesive.

Our Ceremony Programs

 

I went back and forth between what style of program and whether or not to purchase separate fans. Eventually, I decided to combine them into one project. I started with petal fans, but I couldnâ€t find grommets thick enough for the amount of pages I wanted to include, so I quickly switched over to a flat program fan. Hereâ€s the big hint for making this go some much easier, I had purchased a can of spray adhesive for a different project and we used that to attach the pages. What a sanity saver, too bad we had already sent the neighbors out to get us a glue stick.

Bridal Party Accessories:

 

I ordered custom made bracelets from my neighbor that makes jewelry. She sent me pictures of a few options and then made bracelets and earrings based on what I liked. I'm really happy about how they turned out and the colors are a perfect match. She also surprised me with rings.

Over the weekend, we finally managed to find ties for FI and GM. FI is wearing a black suit with white shirt, GM are wearing black pants with a white shirt. FI's tie is the one in the middle.

The jewelery is my gift to the BM and FI purchased all the attire for his GM as their gifts.

Pre-travel Brochures:

 

For a few people, this will be their first vacation. So to help things go smoothly, I sent out pre-travel brochures. I designed them in MS Publisher and then printed them through vistaprint. I probably should have sent them sooner, but I'm a procrastinator. If anyone wants the template, please ask.

Thanks everyone. The most amazing thing about FI's proposal was that since it was just us and the pilot in the basket, FI actually got down on one knee in the basket. For the rest of the trip I kept my hand in a fist because I was so scared the ring would slide off my finger and be completely lost!

 

I still have more photos to upload before we leave in a couple of days, but of course I forgot my camera cord.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • 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!
