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!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
