@veryvalentine Totally!! Love that you'll have a flower crown and a birdcage veil. I was initially thinking about a bircage veil, I really love the vintage feel. I just haven't found one yet that I love. I think that might be my side project today to start looking around for more options.  :)


@perianjay I know - I really wanted nicer weather too but we're kinda stuck with January wedding. My fiance didn't want to do it too far in advance to our Mexico wedding.

Totally understand his point.. that's the part that is hard for me to get over as well. Even though we aren't considering it our 'marriage'. We just want to sign papers and put it out of our minds until the wedding as I want our symbolic ceremony to be our true wedding.

@perianjay we're totally in the same boat. We're not going to exchange rings and we won't be calling each other husband/wife until after Mexico.

@snswedding2016  @perianjay

 

We booked our legal ceremony for June 13th, literally the day before we leave...  The officiant wants to do the wedding in Spanish to practise his Spanish. hahhaha and Spanish is my second language and to me it doesn't really speak to me much sooo..it's perfect because It wont' really mean much.  lol  No wedding band exchange and a very simplified vow exchange.

 

I think it will be such a rush because we are leaving the next day that we won't have time to mentally process what we just did.

 

Funny story, I called the clerk's office to ask where in writing I could see about the rules for symbolic weddings before legal weddings and I think she thinks that I have either a) done it that way and trying to fix it without telling them,   or B) I am still considering doing that.  lol  so hopefully people read our thread about that and just call their local clerk's office and have it confirmed before they find themselves in a similar situation like your friend's friend.

 

Back to the veil:  I bought my birdcage at a random bridal accessory store on Queen West.  between Spadina and Agusta.  I ended up making myself a cute little feather flower fascinator to add to the birdcage to dress it up.  I'll have to take a pic so you can see what it looks like and maybe it inspires you too :)

@veryvalentine Ahh so exciting -everything is coming up so quickly!! That's kinda funny that the clerk thinks you're trying to pull a fast one...even though you're just trying to get the info. 

 

 

Did you get it at Sussman's bridal on Queen? They have a ton of accessories in there! I think I might have to make a trip over there. Please post pics I would love to see your veil!!! :D

I went to Sussman's bridal accessories this week (twice actually). I tried on a bunch of birdcage veils and a bunch of regular veils. I love the look of the birdcage veil…I've always loved them but for some reason I just didn't love it on me. I was talking to one of the ladies at the shop and I'm now considering having a veil made. I'm planning on wearing my hair lower  and I don't want the veil too long so the one I was looking at was $45 for a single layer and it would be an extra $30 to add the lace of my dress to the edging of the veil. I think this is the way I'm going to go. I just need to grab a swatch of my lace from my dress designer to see if Sussman's can work with it.

 

I also just got a message from a friend (who is a photographer) today on Facebook who has offered to do an engagement shoot for us for free this summer. It was so sweet and nice of her to offer out of nowhere! We were talking location ideas and she randomly threw out the idea of a treehouse and she didn't even know that Sean proposed at a treehouse! Crazy! So we might go back to the proposal location but the only issue is that it is a 4 hour drive for us. I kinda feel bad asking her to drive all that way when she is doing this for us for free. I suggested maybe we find a place that has a similar vibe. We're both going to do some research.  :)

 

Also we're getting married 8 months from today!!!

Can't complain about a free engagement shoot!! That's awesome. Ps. how exciting is it that you're 8 months away?
When I hit the seven mark point I got butterflies like crazy and couldn't believe we were approaching half a year away. Time truly does fly.

@perianjay I know it's pretty crazy! I really feel like it was yesterday that I started planning this whole wedding and we had 14 months to go! Can't believe it! I'm getting really excited that it is coming up so soon but also realizing all of the things I still need to do! haha
