@snswedding2016

I know how you feel about decorations when you had no intentions of buying more haha. I’m the same way. It’s hard to stop looking, and when you do it’s like things just start jumping off the shelves at you. I also bought the striped straws. That’s a great deal! I found them on clearance at Michaels for $1.50 (I ended up buying sooo many). We decided that we are going to have a signature drink and use these straws only for that drink. I like your idea of having the fun straws for kid’s drinks though! Cute! Everything looks so cute though! It’s all coming together! Yay!

 

Your necklace is so cute! I love it and the fact that it has sentimental meaning to you makes it perfect for your wedding!

 

Also that’s so exciting about getting a second engagement photoshoot. Especially one in the summer. I love the location you picked. The photos will surely come out stunning and because the color of the lavender might come out close to your wedding color it would work to decorate your location with your new photos for the wedding! Can’t wait to see them!

great decor additions! i'm not in that stage yet but i can only imagine that when i lock down a theme and colour scheme i am going to run wild; especially at homesense. i love the idea of making your own chair sashes. much more economical! if you cut a piece and try, show us a picture!

 

i don't think you could have picked a better necklace to wear. i love the sentimental value and it will look so unique and beautiful.

 

we too are really banking on getting the free upgrade to a sky suite. off the bat we booked a one bedroom thinking we would definitely want the extra space & the king sized bed. i didn't read that they only upgrade you one level so that makes me feel better about our situation. i think you made the right call and for $230 it seems like a steal. fingers crossed you get upgraded!

 

are you registering anywhere? my girlfriends that just got married had a blast doing their registries. they registered at the big bay downtown. if you do the bay, one piece of advice she gave me was to go to more than one bay (for example). she found that although downtown had tons of stuff, they didn't have as many dish patterns as some of the smaller locations. sounds like it pays to visit a few.

 

LOVE your second engagement shoot spot. so beautiful and will make for amazing photographs.

 

everything is looking great!

I think you got great decorations. I've stopped going to Michael's and searching all together because I could find more, but I think it would be overdoing it at this point, plus I don't have any more room. When I got a coupon for Michael's this morning for 25% off everything I was like "gasp!!" but no, I need to control myself. At least I'm keeping busy with house decor now :)

 

That's so exciting that you have so many trips coming up. Even if they're short, it's nice to get away. 

 

I love your necklace, and I love the inscription on it. I think it's very cute. 

 

Edit: I knew I was forgetting to comment on something important. OMG!! That lavender field is beyond my wildest dreams. I absolutely love lavender and that site is just gorgeous. Your pictures will look so good!! I can't wait to see them. I've only gone to one lavender farm in Kelowna BC and I loved that place. That smell made me want to camp there and stay forever. I even tried lavender ice cream, it was delicious.

@yycbride2016 @ashhtayy @TinkerSofi Thanks ladies! I know I have to stop going into those stores, I keep picking stuff up and justifying how to use it for the wedding. haha! Although last time I was in Homesense I had about five things in my cart and only bought one of them! I was pretty proud of myself! ;) Those Michaels discounts are just way too tempting sometimes!

 

We've asked for no gifts but we know some people will still want to get something or those who won't be able to go to the DW will want to get us a little gift. We decided to do a honeymoon registry instead. Sean and I are transferring to the El Dorado Casitas Royale for 5 days after our wedding week so we'll be using anything that we receive for that trip. They can purchase candlelit dinners, room upgrades, excursions, champagne etc. 

 

So excited for the engagement shoot! Hopefully the farm is everything I'm envisioning. I think we're pretty much set on a date, I'm just confirming with the lavender farm about the permit. They've already said the date is available, we just have to do the paperwork. Aug 2!!! We were going to do late Aug but they warned us that, that is a bit late in the lavender bloom. Although there is no guarantee, there is a better chance for the bloom in early Aug. Now to pick out the outfits!! :)

@calgarybride2015 Men! Just fuelling the fire!  ;)

 

I'm so glad to hear that your sister loved the El Dorado! My TA recommended it after we decided to do a little mini moon. I'm super excited for the casitas suite with the outdoor shower!!

She said it was rated above as 5*. She attended a wedding there!! I'm excited to hear what you think. We are planning our one year - country unknown - but I'd like to splurge a bit :)

Shawn wants to go back to Thailand. I believe Phuket? I think I'd like to go to Jamaica but I will have to compromise on the AI at some point hehe he's more a backpacker. I'm more hotel :)

@calgarybride2015 What about a hotel in Thailand?? ;)  My TA was there in March for some wedding events and the Four Seasons in Chiang Mai looks AMAZING!!! She raved about it. You could splurge and do a nice hotel or resort (like the Anantara Phuket Villas) and then have some adventures travelling around that might appeal to Shawn. Best of both worlds!  :)
