Hi! My name is Kristina and I got engaged June 19th 2013 (my Birthday )
I am from Toronto, Canada and after a few months of roughly looking into planning a wedding in our beautiful city we have decided a destination wedding is where it is at! No drama or unwanted guest added by either of our parents!
We will be departing Toronto on January 13th 2015 to sunny Cuba where we will be getting married at Melia Las Dunas we also will be staying there a week after for our 'honeymoon' I guess but later on we will be going to Europe.
Our colours may not be anyone's first choice but they are purple, lime green and hot pink.
We have a small wedding party made up of my best friend and FI's sister and he will only have a best friend on his side.
I ask my bridal party to be my bridesmaids by making a little box of goodies.
I took a white kraft box and scrunched up baby blue and white tissue paper and placed 27 dresses and bridesmaids in it along with a mini bottle of champagne and a ring pop. I tired the box up with white and cream tulle and attached little pearls and crystals on it and added plastic baby blue butterflies and a larger wooden ring I painted.
I also made t-shirted for them with the role I was asking them to be and tied it with the same tulle and a baby blue and white butterfly.
I made a card that said:
Laugh with me
Cry with me
Stand with me
Plan with me
Will you be my Bridesmaid?
I tend to take my ring off a lot (cooking cleaning showering or sleeping) so I made a ring holder for beside my bed
My FI and I were planning on inviting everyone who would have be on our list in Toronto to our destination wedding. We spent a few months looking for pricing and dealing with some great and not so great travel agents. The bottom line was we knew once we got our price and put down our deposit our guest had 90 days to put down theirs to lock in their price and reserve their room.
We wanted to let our guest know before Christmas because we didn't want anyone to feel short of money or blindsided by our choice in picking a destination wedding.
So we sent out postcards letting everyone know what we were doing and to get the ball started. At this point we didn't know where we would be going or the cost of it.
