      Thank you Sharon,

      The Bubba Kegs were from Canadian Tore (on sale of course) and I brought them to 'Thing Engraved' and they did them for about $50, but you pay by the letter and we had alot on them!

      Thanks Sunshine!

      We did have a blast! We didn't get a group rate for the cooling runnings (didn't know you could do that). We had originally planned just to take the bus over (some of our guests did) but we were convinced by others to take the catamaran and it was great!

I could feel the love through the thread and it seems liked you guys had a blast!

       

      I am happy you did the cool running excursion, we did that last time when we were in jamaica and wanted to share it with our guests. Did they give you a group rate? Did your guest pay separate or did you cover it all?

       

      Congrats on being a MRS!! Don't stress too much about the AHR!

        Finding MY dress was a huge dilemma. I had gone shopping with my Mom and Mother in Law early in the planning stages. I thought that I wanted something simple (which was what we were planning for the wedding). I chose a straight, plain dress for a great price. But as our planning went on and I continued to see more dresses, I knew the first was not the one for me. I am so glad I went back out to try on more dresses because I did find THE ONE! With a few alterations I was really feeling like the bride I wanted to be! If you are not sure about your dress, go try more on!

        My jewellery was very inexpensive. Earrings were from Aldos  and the bracelet from The Bay.

        The hair flowers were real and the hair dresser put them in last minute, I wasn’t really planning on wearing anything in my hair but I’m glad I did.

        I also had a red belt made to wear with the dress but decided against it on the day of. I kinda wish I wore it, but oh well.

        I do not like wearing heals and in the summer I always wear flip flops so I chose to be comfortable on my wedding day. I did however bling out my flip flops with a bedazzler! I did the same to the Flower girls shoes.

        The Rings

         

        His ring is titanium with laser Calladah because I am Scottish and Irish, and it’s also inexpensive, and he will lose it (again, his words).

        My jeweler made my ring using the gold from the first necklace DH gave me. I’m going to get an eternity band to match for 1st anniversary, fingers crossed!

        You can kind of tell in this photo that DH has his back to everyone. I had told him that I didn`t want him to turn around until I was at the end of the isle. He took that to mean he wasn`t to turn around until I was right beside him!

          Depsite of some of the challenges you ran into it looks like you all had a great time and regardless of what happened you are married now. I think with any wedding you can expect something to go wrong or not as planned.  Everything looked great! Congrats!

            Thank you Allie,

            The Bridesmaids dresses were from Victoria's Secret

            what a beautiful wedding!!! 

             

            sorry to hear you had some challenges with the resort. love your attitude though.



            I just ordered our Thank you "cards" from Vistaprint. Love them! I will probably order metallic envelopes from papercircle.ca to send them.

             

            I wanted to stay in the travel theme for the ones that we are sending to those in attendance so they are 'postcards' :).

            lp2.jpg

             

             

            These ones are for those that could not come but sent cards/gifts.

            They are blank on the backside so we can write whatever we want.
