Thank you @@krystalball I always tell people to keep an open mind when trying on wedding dresses so I thought I'd follow my own advice with veils. I'll post about it in 2 weeks and let you all know how it goes

I agree. I said I didn't want a veil. it wasn't for me. But I kept an open mind and tried one on. I still sided with no veil but I tried just in case :)

@@Wafflesmom wedding planning is going well!  I finally feel like I have a handle on my new job, so I'm back in full wedding planning mode!  I need to read through your planning blog to see what I've missed while I've been MIA!

@@calgarybride2015 truth be told, I've always loved mantilla veils and had envisioned that when I get married, I would have a long Cathedral mantilla veil. So I agree with all you ladies that it will be good to see it for myself.

 

@@Danielle1 I'm so glad you're enjoying your new job and can now get right back to wedding planning. As always, I'm here to help you if needed :)

Ok I need your input/opinion on something. I'm filling out our legal ceremony forms (so exciting) and we have to identify 4 witnesses, two for the Groom and two for the bride. I was initially thinking that members of our bridal entourage could be our witnesses but Derrick only has one on his side (his best man). I have one MOH and three bridesmaids so if we get four from that group, it leaves one out (does that look weird)? Or we can get four other witnesses (maybe Der's sister and brother in law, and I could get my brother and sister in law). But would this be too many people moving around? Thoughts?

@@Wafflesmom omg I'm in the same dilemma.  Only Col's groomsmen will be in the country long enough to be official witnesses, we were thinking of having their wives sign as the other 2 witnesses.  I don't know how that all works during the actual signing, like do my 2 bridesmaids do anything and then the 2 wives come up?

 

Thank you for asking this!  Hopefully we can get some answers!

@@deecol I thought I was asking such a trivial thing so I'm glad that you also think it's a good question. I just think it would look weird if only some of the bridal entourage signed. I could also get two bridesmaids two sign as my witness then have Der's best man his sister to sign but then I think that could look weird too having one person who's not for the bridal party do it

@@Wafflesmom I agree - I don't know how it all works...  I agree that it would probably look weird having different people than in the bridal party come up to sign, but I don't know if there are really any other options.

@@Wafflesmom I think your close family would be great! If they are sitting in the front row, I don't think it would be weird for them to get up to sign. I've seen ceremonies where parents or siblings get up to do different things.

Thanks for all your input @, @@Danielle1 and @@deecol

 

You're all right, maybe close family would be best. We're not having our parent's names on our wedding certificate since it will cost us so much more for original birth certificates with an apostille so maybe having our parents as witnesses would be perfect! What do you think @@deecol? Immediate family would be at the front row anyways so it shouldn't be too bad right?

 

Ok second question, my dad died 29 years ago so who should I ask ask my secondary witness, my brother or my uncle who has been a father figure to me?

I think immediate family is a great idea. Unfortunately the Canadians won't arrive 4 business days before, well they technically do but they won't count the day they land. So all my witnesses will have to be Colin's side, some are going for 2 weeks land a couple days before us, some for 10 days and will land the day after us.

 

I think you should go with your gut on choosing your brother or uncle, it's hard to say because I don't know your relationships like you do. Either way it will be beautiful and a nice touch to have them as your witnesses.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
