Aww everything looks so great!! I love the way you wrapped your bridal party gifts :)

 

I'm getting so excited for you as you approach your date - it's so much sooner than I remembered it to be, but then again, my wedding is over and I still can't believe that either haha.

 

I'm happy that your dad likes the song!! I hope it all works out :)

 

In my opinion for the sand, i'd probably just leave the sand at home and steal some sand from the beach. Personally i'd be too worried about the additional weight.. every KG counts especially when you have so much stuff to bring down for the wedding.. not to mention the way those people treat the luggage lol. When I got home a lot of my 'liquids' were broken.. thankfully I packed them in freezer bags.

 

Ps. I love those wooden letters. They are so detailed and beautiful

@yycbride2016 Everything looks so great!

 

You have so much on your plate!  I'm stressed planning one wedding and my best friend's bachelorette.  I couldn't imagine planning a wedding and AHR.  But you look like you've got everything organized (love the boxes!) under control and it all looks amazing so far  :)

You are so organized, everything looks great. I haven't scrolled through the whole feed but if you need pics of anything (ie venue etc) or info let me know - we had our wedding there Nov 7th with 72 guests- it was a blast!

Wow, you've gotten so much done again, woohoo! I have to commend you on the organization. Getting those bins is a great idea.

And it's a shame the letters are heavy, but at least you get yo use them for you AHR.

@perianjay thanks hun! I'm happy with my packaging for all the gifts. Seems fitting with everything else I've done.

I know! I can't believe how fast it's coming up. My countdown in the house scares me a little! I can't believe your day has already passed! It seems so crazy!

Yeah that's what I want to do with the sand but some brides said its illegal to take sand from the beach. I'll have to ask the coordinator if we'll be able to borrow it.

@deecol thanks! Yeah I feel like I'm planning to weddings really! It's insane! Makes my to do list twice as long but it will be fun!

@emjay84 thanks! I'm trying my best to stay on track and keep to a plan so I don't freak out on the last week gags.

I'm going to go check out your thread! Thanks!

@wafflesmlm yah! I feel so determined to get as much done as possible sooner rather than later.

Update:

I did it again! I tackled my to do list like a BOSS yesterday! It was my day off work and I felt so exhausted by the end of the day. I went looking for a white dress and outfit for my bridal shower and bachelorette parties but no luck. I might have some outfits that will work, I'll post pics later.

I found an ampersand wooden block to go with our k & j letters. I'm happy with how it looks: Attached File  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1452614479.350595.jpg   520.13KB   8 downloads

I found a few crazy deals at Michaels (I forgot to take pics so I'll do that tonight and show you ladies!)

I created what I think is an amazing "tossing" bouquet out of flowers from Michaels. It probably only cost me $20 to put together! I'm happy. It makes me not want to toss it though haha .

I'm actually thinking of buying 3 more of the large teal peony flower and bringing it with me to see if they can add to my bouquet in Mexico for a pop of color!

We also got our new suitcases!!! I found a great deal at HomeSense. Since my parents couldn't come to Canada for Christmas this year they gave us money. We decided to put it towards something useful! Why not suitcases for our wedding and honeymoon! Attached File  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1452614770.687292.jpg   574.16KB   8 downloads

I also found little boxes to package the fathers cuff links in! Another item off of my to do list!

Thanks @nkavanaugh & @calgarybride2015 I loved it so much I decided to make 3 smaller similar ones for my bridesmaids for a fraction of the cost the resort would charge.

When I was in Michaels yesterday they had a clearance sale on bridal goodies! Got us some luggage tags and me a bride shirt both were $2 each! So crazy!!!

Good job!!! Those will look fantastic.

Nice find! Those were on clearance when I was engaged so they finally dropped it enough to be a clear bargain :) awesome
