Very small update

 

Got my prints back from Vistaprint for our welcome letter and our weekly itinerary. I think I shared my original ones on here a little while back, but after I started getting into design and creation of wedding templates, I really could no longer appreciate my old designs. I created myself a brand new original design for my welcome letter/itinerary and had it printed.. i'm in love with it and it goes perfectly with our theme.

For any brides that are looking for custom itinerary, welcome letters, advice cards or any signage, feel free to visit my Etsy shop. I'm really really reasonable and willing to put in the extra work to customize it to what you'd like :)

Lastly, Chester and I went ring hunting for him. He picked a ring that i'm really happy with and it will match my wedding band as well since I'm doing two stacking rose gold bands. We decided on Tungsten as it seems to be most reasonable and it's really scratch resistant. I'm in love with the rose gold. The company also offers free engraving so i'm going to have it engraved (but not tell him).

Other then that.. not a whole lot going on. I haven't spoke to my MOH since the other day when the blow up happened so I'm not really sure where we stand right now. I've gotten a lot of great support on this forum as well as from my family and friends. I feel at peace with the situation now knowing that Chester and I are going to keep our legal wedding private and intimate. 

 

This Friday (tomorrow) i'm meeting up with some of the GTA (Toronto) brides and i'm super excited about that :D

I love Chester's ring! Very nice and very masculine! Doug really likes the tungsten too but now we have an issue because of the weight he lost. He can still wear it, just on his right hand instead.

I'm glad you're settled with your decision on your legal ceremony and that it doesn't have you so upset now. You don't need the extra stress so if the decision has helped you calm down and be ok with it, then that's all that counts.

I have a question for you. Do you know how to tackle rack cards? Do you do the printing, or do you recommend somewhere? i like some of the designs that you've posted but I'm struggling with a door card. I think I have a design but when I print the colours just suck, and I have a pretty good printer. Getting frustrated!

I'm really looking forward to tomorrow night!!

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@perianjay Love Chester's ring!! Where did you get it?? I think Sean would really like something similar.

 

The welcome letter and itinerary look great!!! I might be contacting you after we finalize all those details. I haven't even attempted those paper items yet ---such a slacker.

If you're going to go with it let me know.. he gave me a coupon code to use for 15% off and it will probably work for you as well.

@perianjay I love that you've moved your legal ceremony date and you've chosen to have a small and private, yet intimate setting. You know what I think about your MOH. Seriously consider what I mentioned. I've seen something so similar and it didn't turn out well. I'm hoping your situation will turn out differently but I'm just getting over protective of you and your well being ☺️

I love your new design!!! I'm so glad I didn't order my new prints yet, I almost did yesterday since they had a sale! Can you help me design one? I will order off your etsy site! Something with coral and grey??

@Wafflesmom of course I will help you!! Take a look at my Etsy shop and see if there's anything you like. If you like the design that I made I could also customize that a bit more to your colours! :) Just let me know 

 

Ps. this time it will be a much more clear/high res file.. I don't use snagit anymore hahaha

Thanks @perianjay, I'll look at the designs in your shop. I've already bookmarked it under my favourite etsy shops ;)

And I completely forgot to comment on Chester's ring. I love the design and I love that both your bands will match. It's a nice band, way to go Chester! We've also picked our wedding bands already. I went with an eternity ring that was custom made to match my engagement band and fits under the halo setting. Derrick's also getting his custom made and like you guys, opted for rose gold. His is a rose gold sleeve with a center strip of white gold, then a channel of diamonds perpendicular to the ring. He put a lot of effort into his ring design, which totally surprised me. Mine's already done, his takes longer to complete but at least we've gotten them already :)

@Wafflesmom aww!! That sounds so beautiful. I love that he put all of that thought into his design :) 

Did you do any engraving at all? I didn't tell Chester, but I ordered it with engraving to say "12.15.15 My heart is yours"
