I'm more concerned about heat during the ceremony (my reception is indoors). What time is everyone's ceremony starting? I am currently at 4pm but wondering if it should be later.
I've been so inconsistent with my diet and exercise. I've just gotten back on track. I purchased my dress 7 lbs heavier than I am now and it fit then. I was just hoping to lose more.
Where did you buy your veil weights?
My ceremony starts at 5pm with the reception starting at 7pm. Sunset is around 7:30pm so we should plenty of daylight for the pictures. I have the photographer coming at 3:30pm to start taking getting ready pictures plus I wanted some time before the ceremony to have a few shots of the 2 of us.
I had my final dress fitting today and hallelujah!! My dress fits even with the plus 7-8 lbs I gained since I bought it. When I said I wanted to lose 6-8 more, the seamstress said not to try because then the dress will be too loose. OK - just the excuse I needed to not work so hard on dieting and exercising!!
I got the veil weights on Amazon for about $12 for 6. If you goggle 'veil weights; you can find several shops plus I found a couple on Etsy. Most were in the range of $35-65 but I went with the cheap ones,
Tonight, FI and I are going to work hard on our reception music! Gonna get this all figured out tonight.
I've also made my ceremony programs and menus on Word, just need to print them out. I've also made my placecards and just need to buy some ribbon to tie them to my maracas for the table.
I also need to do my table numbers (just 3, lol). We're going do flameless candles and wrap vellum around the glass with the table number on it. Other than that, we're almost ready to go!
Anyone else doing a sand ceremony?
Yes, we are doing a sand ceremony. I bought the kit and sand on WeddingWire last year.
