Snswedding2016 Planning Thread - Jan 9 2016 (Azul Fives)

Recommended Posts

@snswessing2016 I'm so sorry, I've men super MIA lately. But everything is looking so amazing. You BDR looks like it was amazing and super helpful in the last parts of your planning process. I think your table centerpiece look great on those tables. Simple yet cute!

Congrats on the one year engagement anniversary! Kyle and I just celebrated ours too at the beginning of October. It worked out that we had already planned to go for dinner with Kyle's family so it was a nice celebration!

 

I love the bouquet! It's gorgeous but I can see what you mean about the purple tinge to them instead of blue. Have you talked to the seller? It's probably not going to be noticeable and it might add some nice variation to the colors at the wedding.

Bridal Shower

 

So today was my bridal shower!!! It was such a great day but it did start off kind of rocky and with disappointment. My mom who was really excited about my shower and helping out woke up this morning with the flu. She thought she could fight through it but half an hour later was really feeling terrible. I understood and felt so bad because I know how excited she was and really I did want her to rest and feel better but I was really bummed out and disappointed that my mom wouldn't be at my shower. I haven't had any wedding events leading up till now so I was really looking forward to this and having her there as well. I decided to shake off the initial disappointment and tried to focus on the fact that it would still be a great day and it would be better with her resting up rather than trying to fight through a flu at a party. 

 

Once I got there it was great. My maids of honour did a beautiful job decorating and planning the whole thing. One of them wanted to plan a Mexican themed shower and well the other one...she's actually Mexican. You can see how the planning got "interesting" at certain points (which I'm hearing about now). They agreed on a subtle Mexican theme. haha! The best part though is that my other mom (my friend's mom)- Mama Rosa made her famous burritos!! So good!

 

ok enough of the debrief...here are some pics

So they were all asked to get me something for the wedding night....did I mention my 90 year old grandma was there (the girls didn't think this one all the way through but it was funny and maybe a little embarrassing at times lol)

So I now have lingerie to last a lifetime but not everyone got me lingerie....this was by far the most embarrassing gift I had to open in front of everyone (you don't want to know what I'm showing everyone...or maybe you do haha!!)

Oh we also had games including this one where everyone wrote a joke vow from me to Sean. This one was also really embarrassing to say out loud....big surprise the same person who got me the gift from above! Love those guys though, they certainly were the life of the party!

I had a really great day and feel so fortunate to have my girls who took so much time and effort to plan this day for me!  :)

 

I think we settled on a bachelorette party for either Dec 11 or 12. @ my girls were talking about Remington's haha it made me think of yours!

First off, on your flowers - I'll be honest. I really like them with your shades of blue. And I don't think anyone will notice because I think they'll match really well. If anything it will set off the shades of blue quite nicely! Blue is my favourite colour so I always like finding colours that will look nice with any shade of blue and set it off and I think your flowers will do that.

 

Your shower looks like it was a great time! You definitely have some special people on your side! I'm sorry your mom couldn't make it. I'm sure she was there in thought and hopefully she's better soon. Unfortunately it's that season again.

 

Woohoo! Bachelorette at Remington's! Sounds like you'll have a great night!! lol

You have such wonderful friends and family to organize such a fun bridal shower. And I laughed too about having your 90 year old grandma see embarrassing things.

 

And since no one else has asked, I'm curious what those pink things were. What were they?

 

Can't wait to hear about your stagette!

Thanks ladies!! It really was a great day!! My mom is feeling much better today...of course...murphy's law. It's all good though- I'm glad she's feeling better and I gave her a play by play of what happened yesterday. 

 

@@Wafflesmom @@calgarybride2015 haha I knew some of you might be curious - they are "silicone advanced nipple suckers"...there was also a throat numbing spray in that gift bag :blink: (am I even allowed to write about these things on this forum?!? Sorry if that was too vulgar!). Needless to say I turned a bit red with my 90 year old grandma watching me open this gift and we all had a good laugh!

Here is a pic of the guestbook my girls made for me for my shower. They had set up a backdrop and all my guests took pics with the instamax polaroid and each made a page in my book. I love it! There are some empty pages so I'm going to print some pics from the shower and put them in the album.

Favours

We've been going back and forth on ideas for our favours. We're doing welcome bags but wanted to do something small for the reception that kept with our love story theme. I really wanted to do book page bookmarks but found the only way to make them durable is to laminate them and I always finds it makes it look a bit too shiny and a little cheap looking. So we mulled over a couple ideas when I found these really cute dictionary magnets and both Sean and I loved them! They are super easy to make. All you need is a dictionary some glass beads (I went for the larger ones in the mosaic aisle in Michaels), decoupage glue and some magnets!

 

I really love the way they turned out. I originally bought strip magnet because it was cheaper and hoped it would be strong enough....not so much. I'm going to have to go back to Michaels and get the stronger circular magnets.

 

I've done about 2/3 of the magnets I need. Here is the first batch:

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
