@Meandhim I'll get to meet you when you get my dress bag!! lol You'll be so close to your wedding by then!!!


Good lord in heaven. Two weeks of overtime and I'm so far behind!!!

 

First of all @beckys98 what a sweet thing to do!! How cool is that!

 

@calgarybride2015  Now you know why I'm still here!! I love watching everyone go through all of their planning and seeing their reviews after their big day! You ladies become like my own children! lol It's just a fluke after everything Doug and I have been through that we're going to renew our vows and this is where I came back to for ideas and suggestions!

 

@Meandhim  Your thread is really coming along nicely! you've pulled so many of your details together already! And I totally agree - you should absolutely do an Etsy store!!! Why the heck not???

@Meandhim I love your story.  My condolences to you, your FI, and  your family.  I'm happy that things worked out for you in the end.  Your nan is a very strong woman!  I've always wanted to go to Newfoundland and I love people from the East coast everyone I've met from out East is so friendly.  

 

I've also has some challenges in my wedding planning as well and had to change my date too.  Until now I thought that I was the only bride that didn't have a smooth planning experience.

Hey!  I'm just catching up on your thread.  I like what you are going to do with the little "messages in a bottle"  we are doing the table number idea with them.  they are so cute and inexpensive.

 

I was reading your post where you asked if it was normal that your names aren't on your favours etc etc...and I'm sort of on the same boat. 

 

So we've been trying to avoid the cheesy "name and date and blah blah" because it's mostly Important to us but not necessarily to everyone else to have every item stamped with our info.

 

Our welcome bags have a design we made with our hashtag and that's it, we  have a label for our chapsticks that has just the hashtag, our door hangers only have the hashtag, the maracas have a tag attached that say our names but that's removable.  Essentially we really tried to be cool and just have the hashtag....but then my dad, who is close to 75 now, decided to "help out" with the wedding.  he he.  One day out of the blue he asked for a picture of me and my fi...so I sent him one...before I knew it, a few days later he send me a picture of a mug with that same picture, and it says "a Souvenir from the wedding of Rebecca & Alonso, June 20th, 2015" in spanish  lol  So my dad had like 40 mugs made with our pictures on them.  I feel like it's soooo cheesy but I can't hurt his feelings and it's actually just kinda cute.  I've told my close friends and now it's just a giggle...

 

so ya, I totally get where you are coming from...I really tried to keep it chill with the whole wedding branding but now I have 40 mugs with my face on them.  hhahahah

@acw271011
Yay! Can't wait to meet you :) thanks for the compliment but I still feel like I'm very behind in planning.

@perianjay Thanks :)

@diadiamond

Thank you, I find no one really writes about how crappy planning can be sometimes...lol...I'm sure some people are screaming blasphemy! At me right now...ha! I'm sorry to hear you were having challenges with your planning too, it sucks! I'm Glad to hear you are back on track now. I am of the mind that everything happens for a reason so maybe it's all for the best. I hope that your planning is much smoother from here on in! I can't wait to hear about it :)

@veryvalentine
I just love the bottles... I'm going to try to make a trial one this weekend... See how it goes :)

Lol love that your dad got you the mugs so funny! It's really cute! It's cheesy but it's now a "wedding story" which is so awesome! You'll look at that mug in 10years and it will still make you laugh I bet!

Now this will sound really cheesy and I'm sorry but what your dad did brought tears to my eyes! lol As a mom of grown kids with grandchildren.... it's hard sometimes to communicate to your kids what events in their lives mean to you. I bawled my eyes out when 2 got married, one of which I actually had NO KLEENEX! And the pictures look horrible because I'm all red eyed and stupid. lol But the thing is what your dad did is exactly the kind of thing I would do!! And yeah my kids would have the same reaction lol
