Well you've inspired me to get my butt in gear after I write this crazy expensive super irrelevant exam today and tomorrow (yes, I should be probably cramming last minute info in right now, but my brain is fried!). I'm a chronic student as well- I'm in my 10th year of university education wacko.gif If you're ever around the UAH or RAH stop in to say hi! :)

The top looks amazing, It seems that once the trailing orchids are added it takes away from the beauty and elegance.

Thank you :D 

Yeah send it to him and if he likes it, I can give you the name of etsy seller. From what I've heard Petawawa is way better than Brandon (I've never been to Brandon and I really hope I would not have to), at least it is definitely warmer here. :D It is pretty good to raise kids and good for people who love outdoors.

Happy planning!

jreist- You are full of amazing ideas, and you are really on top of this wedding planning business! And this is all while you're in school? My goodness, you put me to shame on how much I've accomplished, and my wedding is less than a month after yours.  How long have you been planning for? Did you live in Lister? Haha, I try to only remember the good times there...

 

kat2012- I just looked through your wedding pics and planning thread- absolutely gorgeous! Your cake topper made me smile- if you don't mind, I'd like to send my FI a picture of it.  What is Petawawa like? Last I heard, I think it may be an option for my FI's next posting.

I got my bridesmaid dresses from the Bay (Southgate) for $97 each. BCBGeneration.

I got the veil and flower addition to the dress at Delica (where I bought the dress). Veil was about $200 and the flower was about $75. There are swarovski crystals in the center of both, and they are Sara Gabriel brand.

I've also been wondering about tanning!!  Good to know about the spray tan.  I know absolutely NOTHING about tanning - I'm very pale and burn easily.  I do want to have a bit of colour for the wedding, but I'm not sure what to do!

I also want to look tanned for my wedding but I didn't want to fake and bake. Unfortunately I am fake and baking...but this is the last time. I bought really good tanning cream than does tan your skin a bit too. It really increases the tanning process so you don't have to go as much.

 

IMO I wouldn't spray tan for a destination wedding unless you are getting married the second day you get there. The tan tends to fade after a couple of days and starts to look blotchy. Plus I felt like the tan settles into your skin lines (not creases, as long as you use the barrier cream properly, you can avoid this) making my hands look old. Plus, if you are starting with non tanned skin they will recommend that you go with a lighter tan rather than a darker tan to avoid an unnatural look. So you end up with a 'glow' instead of a tan. And spray tans don't smell the best and they recommend no shaving after to prolong the tan. All that being said all of my spray tans have looked good initially(hands aside) and I never looked orange.

    • 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.
