@acw271011 Thanks Ann. I really hope the bow ties aren't that pink as they are a bit bright for me (even though I'm not wearing them lol). They shipped today so hopefully I can report back soon.

Dress / Belt Update

I was at a conference today in Woodbridge that happened to be seconds from my dress shop. Since I hadn't heard back I decided to pop in. To my surprise all my alterations were complete. They apologized for their poor communication and promised everything would work out. Blah blah blah. There are a million bridal stores in that plaza so I went to all of them looking for a belt. I walked into Tres Chic Couture and the owner and dress designer was there. He was so sweet! He makes all his own dresses and brought me out samples of belts. I decided to purchase a piece that will be sewn into my dress. I totally overpaid BUT at least it wasn't $400 like the belt I originally wanted. Because the store was so close to my dress shop, I ran over and got my dress and tried them both on together. I love the look!

Here is a picture of the $400 belt and a shot of my new belt. I have an alterations appointment on Saturday and they will sew my belt on to the dress and continue with the additional alterations I need.

Maraca Update

They arrived! I ordered on the 31st and they were on my doorstep today. Very quick turnaround. I'm super happy with them and would 100% order from Amols again.

@ashhtayy  I love the belt!! It's gorgeous!!! It will look great on your dress. I super, super LOVE the peachy/pinky colour of the maracas. I ordered ours from Amols as well (doesn't everyone?) and they turned out great. I ordered white, turquoise blue and hot pink.

@cruisebride2016 Thank you :) You leave so soon!!

@acw271011 Thank you! And how could you not order from Amols? The prices are great! I need to start working on the tag for the maracas now. Probably something simple like "Shake for a kiss" and then "M & A June 7th, 2016".

@calgarybride2015 You made me look twice at my counter lol Two months tomorrow :) I went back to your thread before ordering and looked at your pictures for inspiration! And now that they're here and in my hands I love them even more than I thought I would.

My MOH is actually adorable. My girls are keeping all the details of my shower and bachelorette so quiet! I love how sneaky they're trying to be lol I called my MOH yesterday and asked for some details like time lol and she said I've ruined her plan - she was writing me a poem with the details haha She sent it tonight...

The time has come,
it's down to the hour.
You're getting married,
we're having a shower!

I know you feel awkward,
But get over it, give up!
We're gonna eat finger food
until we throw up!

It's happening this Sunday
on X Drive,
Around 11:30 is when you should arrive.

Me, your mom, and the maids
Have planned it all out.
Celebrating this milestone
Is what it's about!

You're a bride, you're blushing,
You're smitten and fit.
Plus you're probs gonna get
some really cool shit!

So put on your party dress,
Rouge up those lips,
Get ready to pop, fizz, clink as we sip
A toast to the bride,
Cuz the date is all set
As you prepare to become
Mr. Romeo's Juliet!

@ashhtayy I can send you my tag if you want. I didn't just do the "Shake for a Kiss". I did the little nicer one that says "Instead of tapping on your glass". It's already set up in the Avery format. I can bring one on Friday if you want to have a look.

@ashhtayy how have I missed so much?!?! The bow ties are so cute! I love your first dance, that's what I'm walking down the aisle to, not a twilight fan either (although I will guilty pleasure watch it if it's on TV), it's just such a beautiful song!
Your belt looks great and those maracas are perfect!!!
Your girls are so sweet and I love the poem! Can't wait to hear all the details :) just realized you're two months today! So exciting!!!

@ashhtayy I'm so glad that everything worked out with your dress alterations. It sounded like a stressful situation and you handled it really well. I also LOVE the belt!!! 

 

Can't wait to hear about your shower, it sounds like your girls have an amazing day planned for you! The poem is so cute! It's all coming together! 2 months...how did that happen? it's so soon!!

Today was my Bridal Shower and it couldn't have been more perfect. My bridesmaids and my mum planned the best afternoon and Mike and I were so spoiled.

I had preordered flowers for my girls and Mike came to deliver them at the end of the shower (& to help with the gifts and say his thank yous). He surprised me with some flowers too! :)

After the shower all my bridesmaids tried their dresses on. They look great. Next up - shoes for the ladies.

We're getting so close!
