    Thanks for posting about Studiosuits.com and the great deal you found at Old Navy. I am nervous about ordering a suit online but it's probably the route we'll take so he can get an affordable suit that (hopefully) looks good. Does anyone know other than linen what fabrics are best for suits in hot weather?

     

    Here are some websites I found with veil weights. They're magnetic so you can pop them on for the ceremony and take them off without ruining your veil. http://www.savetheveil.com/ a shop on etsy http://www.etsy.com/...?ref=v1_other_1  and http://www.haircomes...eil_weights.htm. There are probably tons of other places to find them as well.

      I am going to get them lounge chair covers I found a seller on etsy that sells them... I love them so much that I think that I will get myself one,

      http://www.etsy.com/...=af_you_favitem

       

      Tealmarie, from everything that I have read they are awesome, great quality and they have a destination section so that may help with the material, I am a little nervous too but my FI and I get so much on the internet anyway why not this too, and they are $99 so even if you have to get them altered when they come big deal... also a tip that I read was to get the lining to the knee helps with see through material LOL.

       

      My biggest thing is bridesmaid dresses, I cannot find any in the colour I want (bright orange) and with so much time until November I cant make up my mind on what to do about this situation, I found the perfect ones at Davids bridal online and when I went to the store they dont do them in that colour anymore WTF and they were rude, so now I cant go back because I hate rude customer service people more than anything! LOL back to the drawing board again.

        I just found out that the Mayan Ceremony I am having has yellow flowers. Do you think yellow and Tiffany Blue (my BM dresses) will clash??

            I think it'll look really pretty. Have a look at this inspiration board http://boards.weddin...1#axzz2LNSzGyrA

             

            I think I'm going to get my bridesmaids cute robes in different prints http://store.plumprettysugar.com/, a clutch and maybe earrings or a ring suited to them. I've also considered a very nice travel jewellry holder (it looks like a clutch). And I'm going to get them mani/pedis at the spa the day before or a massage, their choice.

              Thanks for the tips on the suit. He doesn't even own one suit yet so any suit will be an upgrade. You're right that if you get it tailored specifically to him, it'll look really great even if it's a $99 suit.

               

              The funny thing is this weekend while shopping for wedding dresses, we found a dress my Mom loved for herself but not in the colour she wanted. BUT it was in the most gorgeous shade of orange called 'Mango Tango'. I tried to convince her to get it anyways. Here's a link, maybe they have other styles in the same shade? http://www.jasminebr...iddetaillist=01

              I think what I am going to do is get a bunch of pictures together and go to every bridal salon in Calgary until someone has something! Thanks for the link that is a nice dress, when I search for stores on that website the only one listed is Toronto! Another idea is that summer stuff should be coming out soon maybe we will find something in stores! Who knows.
