I think I saw a few other gals on here doing a photo booth, seemed to work out well bringing their own stuff (it would just depend on the space).

@Sabes44 I forgot you are getting married the day before us. We are having a welcome dinner so we may see you around :) Have you decided on everything yet? We leave for Mexico 4/28, feels like it's coming so quick!

@Crystal17 my date is actually not till May 29 (not sure how it got changed).  So a little bit after yours!  Still have a few things to figure out but getting closer, my dress came in yesterday and just finalizing details and waiting for the last RSVPs to come in to decided on welcome bag stuff.  You ready to go??

Oh ok lol..I'm buying the welcome bag stuff now and have my 2nd dress fitting next month. I still have to find a dress for my shower and the welcome dinner. Sure I'll be busy up until the last minute. I'm looking forward to my bachelorette party :)

What are you doing for your welcome bags??  I am still trying to figure that out, I have ideas and am waiting till we get the final RSVP's in so I don't over/under buy.

I might as well chime in here as well gals!

 

We are getting married in ERC on 11 Feb 15. I have started the process with Jessica and other than the pain in the ass to get my fiancee's divorce translated, notarized and then have the translation apostilled. I think things should go smoothly. 

 

We are just doing the basic inclusive package and no stress. Meaning, no photographers, I am sure that my friends/family can take some nice photos and I think I paid 20.00 for a lacy sundress :D

 

I think me and my ladies will do a spa day just to enjoy the pampering, but no hair or make up. I will likely just put my regular lipstick on. I know we want to look beautiful for this day, but I gotta say I am happy that my guy loves me as I am and I want him to recognize who is walking down that pier towards him.

 

We got our rings done, both custom jobs by PBR designs in Ottawa and he did an amazing job. Especially since my engagement ring is so dainty, it took a lot of work to get a band to compliment and not dominate it!

 

I believe it will be 7 in total with me and the groom, so easy peasy pudding pie! (I hope!)

 

Anyone else here have to get divorce papers done? Basically since it's my first and only wedding, I want it to be completely authentic!

 

Talk to you soon! Keep up the good posts!

 

Shani

@Wrathwitch  congratulations your wedding is so soon! 

let me know how it goes....and to answer your question, this is my first marriage for both me and my fiancé , but that doesn't mean i didn't have to go through annoying paperwork, since I'm from italy lol

we chose the gold wedding package just because our italian parents levee to hang posters of their kids wedding at the house hahaha

7 guest? i wish i did a little head count yesterday with all the "maybes" and its around 80...now I'm sure not all 80 are going to be a definite  :rolleyes:

love the idea of customized rings 

good luck with everything

Hi ladies I seem to recall someone is doing a fire show. We are thinking of doing the same rather than get a dj. The way we see it, dj is getting paid to work 4 hours we will have pir first dance as soon as we arrive shortly after 7 dinner will start around 7:30 and probably take 1.5 so that brings us to 9. We also plan to do a Piñata so paying 1300 for essentially 2 hours seems crazy and so were leaning towards doing a fire show for the wow effect. I was wondering if anyone knew how long the show lasts? 30 min is my guess? And was hoping for some feedback on our thought process. Thks ladies
Oh I forgot to mention our group is only 20 and a third aren't big dancers
