Your parasol came out great! Can I ask where you bought the parasols from?

Caramilk Favors


We decided to make Caramilk bars for favors and I redesigned their labels just for us. We picked Caramilk's because they are distinctly Canadian.


Here is the label:

And here is hubby assembling them.

I also hand painted a fuchsia parasol for our photos:


  1. Printed out "Just Married" on a wide format printer, cut out the letters and used adhesive spray to attach them to the parasol. I tried pinning but that made little holes, and tape wouldn't stickWedding Week 071.jpg
  2. Carefully traced the letters in pencil and removed the stencil. I stuck the parasol between couch cushions to hold it up straight. Wedding Week 072.jpg
  3. Did a quick outline with black paint and the filled in letters with black acrylic paint (I mixed in a little pearl so it wouldn't be as matte)Wedding Week 074.jpgWedding Week 075.jpg
  4. Let it dry for overnight and did another coat to make sure the letters really stood out. Wedding Week 084.jpg



Revised Bridesmaid Bouquets


I decided to take them apart and added rhinestone stephanotis just for some extra bling.

My Second Veil


Since I wasn't going to be wearing my first dress, I needed a veil that matched my new dress. Initially, I planned on making a long veil with a lace trim, but due to time constraints, I eliminated the lace and also decided that a really long veil would be too formal for me. But here is how I quickly made my DIY veil.


  1. Laid out fabric and folded it into thirds to approximately the length I wanted. Wedding Week 076.jpg
  2. Cut the bottom edge into a rounded shape, I did this freehand so it's not perfect, but gets the job done. Wedding Week 077.jpg
  3. Hand stitched across the top, get as close to the edge as possible and make sure to grab all the layers, and gathered the thread. Wedding Week 078.jpg
  4. Hand sewed it onto the veil comb. When I tried it on for hubby we decided it was a little too pouffy, so I cut one layer out. I wasn't about to take it all apart, so I took out the bottom layer. Wedding Week 079.jpg

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
