Snswedding2016 Planning Thread - Jan 9 2016 (Azul Fives)

Recommended Posts

@@Wafflesmom haha yes I get the smacking sound too!

 

I will be planning on wearing my hair pretty low and I didn't want the veil to cover the back of my dress to much so it worked out that the shortest veil length worked! It also helps that it is the cheaper option. ;)

@ Thanks!! I'm pretty excited about wearing them! The ceremony script has been a tricky one from the beginning. I started working on it early on and then would leave it for a while and then come back to it. It's the most personal emotional part of the day - I think it was intimidating me for a while. Glad to have it pretty much done!  :D I still have to work on the legal ceremony script but that one will be very much technical and going through the motions, so that the one is Mexico feels that much more special. 

 

Unfortunate news about my veil - my designer emailed me today to say that the supplier no longer carries the lace from my dress. She even checked her studio to see if she had any left but there was nothing.  :( Now I'm wondering if I should just buy the veil as is without the lace or try and find a similar lace that will go with my dress or to not do the veil at all and just do a hair piece. Gah! Back to square one...

 

In other news we booked our flights for the Brides Dress Rehearsal at Azul Fives in September so we're all set to go for our site visit!!

Awesome news about the BDR!! I really wish we could have gone but oh well. 

 

You know I think your veil looks great the way it is. I think that if you really want to wear a veil that one will do :). Like Perianjay said, a shorter veil will cover up a smaller portion of your dress so you'll get to show off more of that beautiful low back ;)

@@TinkerSofi I think you're right . The more I look at the more I think I don't need to add the lace. I think I was originally worried that the veil without the lace would make my dress look like a different colour. That's what happened with my friend's veil. I think I might take my dress in to the shop and put them together to see. Thanks for your input - I really appreciate it!  :)

 

We're pretty excited about the BDR but because it is pretty close to our wedding I think it will be more to report back to our guests about as most of our plans will be set at that point. It will be nice to just get away!

@@snswedding2016 i want to go to the BDR so badly. please let us know everything you discover. my FI moved from BC to ON so we could live together after a year and a half of long distance; because of this, all of our vacation time (and travel $) is spent going back to BC a few times a year. i'm not complaining by any means, i am so grateful he came here but i do wish i had just one more week of vacation so that the BDR would be in the cards.

@@ashhtayy I will give you a full report back for sure! Although @@TinkerSofi will have had her wedding at AF before I go to the BDR so she might be able to give us info even earlier. Let me know if you have any questions and I will add them to my list. 

 

I totally understand not be able to swing the BDR - it was like that for a while for us too. My fiance's family is from the East Coast so we go back there usually twice a year and it gets really costly. Plus we have a couple of weddings coming up and some work trips. Luckily my mom was able to give me a travel voucher she won last fall (which covered the flights) so we only had to pay the $399. I feel very fortunate to be able to make it down there before our wedding!

I hate to jump in and be off topic. Just curious where is BC he is from? Hehe. And I am from BC and husband ON. Thankfully we can drive to BC but the flights to ON are so pricey you can go to Vegas cheaper.

BC and ON are both expensive to live hahah so no I didn't really question it.

I bet BC has more jobs though?

 

I was born in Terrace but lived most of my childhood life even farther north in Fort St. John. Have been in Calgary 15 years though!

@@ashhtayy I feel your pain on expensive flights. We don't go back to PEI as much as you probably fly out to BC but it is sooooooo expensive anytime time of year. It's one thing to fly to the east coast but to get to the island is just sky rockets in price which is why we usually drive. Flights to Europe are usually cheaper than flying to the island!!

 

I have done that drive so many times now that driving to Montreal feels like driving from Toronto to Hamilton lol!! I think our best time so far has been 17hours and the longest has been 24hours …straight.  :wacko:
