We received out full length video this week and I can't stop watching it! I really thought I only wanted the highlight video. I thought how often am I really going to watch our entire wedding. It came with the package but now I'm so glad we have it. I actually love it a lot more than our highlight. Our highlight video is great but the full length really captures a lot of moments with guests that we weren't there to witness. We received two dvds and the menu has different sections of the wedding. 

 

Disc 1

highlight video

getting ready

first look

ceremony

 

Disc 2

bride and groom (between ceremony and reception)

first dance

speeches

party

 

I can't wait to show this to my mom this weekend!

 

Believe it or not we still have a couple of wedding events coming up...yes even 3 months after our wedding.

 

We have a dinner with my dad's side of the family (none of them came to Mexico) this weekend. This is mainly for my grandma who is 90 and I'm the first grandchild to get married. I'm not close with this side of the family so these events are always a little weird but I know my grandma will love it and I'm excited to see my Aunt who was the only one I was close with growing up. 

 

We also have a reception on PEI in July. We're still finalizing the details. My MIL really wants to have something there since she couldn't come to Mexico but we're trying to keep it small and low key. She says they are going to play my processional song at the reception. I don't know if you guys remember but they were supposed to record it (Sean's family is mostly made up of strings musicians) for Mexico but it never happened...well my MIL feels like she let us down and is insisting that she makes it happen for July. I'm actually not upset about it anymore and I hope they don't stress too much about it. My MIL has had a shoulder injury since the fall, which makes playing the violin really difficult. I'm nervous she's going to push herself too much. 

 

This is not so much about our DW anymore but since it is still wedding related I thought I'd update my thread.

@@snswedding2016 your full length must be so beautiful!  Your mom will love it!

 

That's so exciting that you still have all these post-wedding events!  The PEI reception sounds like it will be a lot of fun!  Is your MIL doing all the decor planning and everything or are you having a hand in it?  Keep us posted on details  :)

@@snswedding2016 judging by your highlight video, your full length video must be amazing!

 

The wedding that never ends - how perfect is that? I hope the dinner with your dads side isn't awkward and that you and Sean have a great time. Yay for a PEI trip! Same question as Dee, is Sean's mom taking care of everything or are you involved in what the day looks like? Keep us posted. We've been with you throughout this entire journey, we want to hear the rest too :)

@@ashhtayy @@deecol I'm not too sure what's happening with decor for the PEI reception. I think if anything we'll be going really simple. My MIL wants to plan this event but there are still a lot of things up in the air on the planning side. Sean told me to make him a list of questions to ask her, just to make sure she's not forgetting anything major. I'll probably end up bringing all my candles and I'm sure my sister in law will help with some simple decor. She's the one who made my veil. 

 

I survived the dinner with my dad's family. It was nice actually but always a bit awkward with my father. My 90 year old grandmother is so cute though. She totally guilt tripped us as usual about having children. She said "All of my friend's have great grandchildren and I don't have any. If I die and I don't have a great grandchild I'll be really sad...". My aunt just shook her head and said "what a little rascal - she knows she can get away with being dramatic" haha!

 

So the big news is that one of my maid of honour got engaged on Friday - woohoo!! I'm so excited for her and I'm also not so secretly excited to keep wedding planning! haha! she's excited that I'm eager to help. She called us Saturday morning and we all went out to get manis! :) She wants to have a short engagement as they want to have kids soon so they are hoping for this Oct/Nov! So we started discussing plans right away. it's funny they have had mulitple people ask them about a destination wedding. Sadly they don't want to have one but that's ok. They might actual open up the honeymoon to friends for a week and continue to travel on their own. I've heard of this idea before and I really like it. it's the next best thing to a DW. 

 

We had planned to watch our full length wedding video with my maids of honours and their partners on Monday. Since we made plans my friend got engaged so it turned into reminiscing about our wedding and celebrating their engagement! We had champagne and lots of cake!

    • 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.
