Continuing my theme of gratitude I found the cutest little 'thank you hanky' from the WeddingChicks website.  (which is my new obsession right now).

 

I was thinking of ordering this hanky for my future mother in law.  I thought it would be so touching for her and it would definitely make her feel appreciated and loved.  They are $12 so I might get one for my dad and for my dad's wife as she has been pretty great too.

Love the hankie! It's super adorable. Just had a chance to look through your planning thread and I just wanted to say that i'm glad you went with the first dress - it looks absolutely beautiful on you!!

Aww thanks @perianjay

The dress really caught my attention.  I'm on #BeastMode right now and taking lots of step and pump classes to try to shed some lbs and get ready inside and out for the wedding.   I thought that dress #1 would showcase my progress better.  It really suits my personality too and I never saw myself as a lace person, but I just fell in love with it.  It also seemed like it would fit in with the destination wedding theme.

 

I love the hanky too!  I saw one that is for flower girls.  It says something like, this can be your something old for her wedding day.  how sweet is that??!!

Yes! I did something similar.. I actually purchased my dress in a size 6 and I usually wear a size 8 or 10 depending on how it fits me (i'm busty too ..ugh). I bought it smaller so that I HAD to be motivated to fit into it.

 

Mine is also a lace mermaid :) .. except I always envisioned myself wearing lace.

@calgarybride2015 - totally talking Les Mills.  The FI and I a double class today, step class first and then pump!  Such a good morning.  

 

We made some progress this weekend.  We bought the grooms gifts.  We found some great gifts at Fossil.  A travel bag perfect for the destination wedding with a luggage tag, passport holder.  I loved the passport holder because not only does carry the obvious, your passport but it has a special slot for the boarding pass and luggage receipt and a pen to fill out the travel cards in the plane.  Love it.  They also have a little card carrier for their hotel room key and some bills.

I took pictures of my bridesmaid gifts earlier but my camera was dying and my pics turned out yellowish so I retook them because they didn't do Kate Spade any justice.  I am making them all jewellery for their dresses.  Haven't designed the jewellery yet but I am also giving them this necklace that will be perfect for dinners at night.

My fiance surprised me with a beachbag - so I'm totally getting so excited to start packing these things away.  Overwhelmed.

I think we found our cake topper.  Everyone I show it to doesn't get it though.  It's the "&" sign.  lol so we may use it as part of the decor at the reception and place it in front and centre of us.

My future mother in law found these adorably cute shells with a little zipper.   I was thinking of either including them as a souvenir in our OOTD bags and putting a peso in there for goodluck or filling them up with rice and leaving them on the chairs at the ceremony so that our guests can throw rice at us.  Not sure which one.  I think rose petals might look nicer in pictures so i'm not sure yet.

My future mother in law also bought us these fans and they come with their own organza bag.  We will placing these on each chair so that our guests can keep cool.

And finally, I made myself a necklace to match my pretty passport holder!  yay!
