Any Other Calgary 2014 Brides?

Recommended Posts

Thanks ladies!  This is our first real tiff since we started.  I would stress out, but he's so laid back it helped.

But now we are getting into the nitty gritty, the stress is just a bit too much to bare so days, and we have 4 months left! 

We did talk some today - calmly - and he asked for a 'to do list'.   It's tough to take time apart when we live together, I was almost thinking time together with NO WEDDING talk was what we needed.  Like not just a dinner out, but an activity or a weekend somewhere, etc.  Not that we can afford that, ha!

 

Thanks again... I know we all have our moments, and everyone here understands.

I feel you on the moments. I had a whole sh*tload of stress as a few of you know (bridesmaid drama, family drama.. oh and then one brother in law tried punching the other one at our family shower.. cue circus music) I felt like such a b*tch for about one month and I was stressed, Rich was stressed and we argued almost every second day. It got to be too much with the drama and wedding stuff. But we have all been there like you said. and it will calm down.

Rich and I live together too but I took off on a girls trip with my mom in Montana for a few days, so we had really limited contact. I think even closer to the wedding, I am going to go visit some girlfriends in Edmonton for a few days just to give him and I a breather, cause you know how stressful it is leading up. You could even get away just for a night.. it really helps. We are now less than two months and things are so chill right now (hoping I am not jinxing it) so hopefully it gets that way for you.

Glad things are feeling chill right now!  Maybe it's because all the hard stuff is settled and it's time to tie up loose ends?

I find I am finally at the point of being done shopping, making all the final decisions, etc. and I am starting to second guess myself on stuff! Cheap Kim made early decisions, and now not so cheap Kim has come out! haha!

 

Glad you have those breathers, that's a great idea and one I am sure I can figure out.  I think we both need it.

 

Good luck!!

So my postcard reminders came today and I just dropped them in the mail to our guests who haven't RSVP'd. For those that couldn't see it before/ this is what they looked like... I just addressed the right side which was blank, put on a stamp and into the mail box they went! ImageUploadedByTapatalk1410490557.792180.jpg

 

I'm happy with how they turned out and they only cost $10 for 30 of them on vistaprint (turned out I only needed 20). Hopefully they light a fire under our guests butts... And if they still don't reply I will assume they aren't joining us.

So those are pretty awesome!!!  This will definitely help light a fire!

 

I love Vistaprint and can't wait until early October when I can finally print all my items at once (have my groupon) just awaiting some nice engagement photos to put on the brochure LOL!!

So who ended up at the Bridal Expo? What did you think?

 

My coworker went and found a dress but she said otherwise it wasn't overly great. She didn't think us DW brides would have found much. She thought it was more vendors (for rentals, planners,etc) and such.  Just her thoughts!

that's what I found last year when I went too. It was mostly for couples planning their wedding here but not much help for DW brides. We ended up not going this time because it didn't work into our schedule and my fiance said that he was afraid I would change my mind about things, again, if we went haha.

I went in knowing that nothing was really going to apply to me however wanted to enter the draws and actually feel somewhat like a bride, considering all the sh*t that has gone on with our wedding :) It was fun enough to go and spend time with my girlfriend but if anyone was looking for information, not much of it would apply unless you were having an AHR.

 

They had good food though.. my girlfriend is a foodie like myself and somehow got one of the vendors to give us 6 macaroons each LOL. Man oh man.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
