Thought it might be Whytecliff or maybe Lighthouse. Both would work beautifully!

Love both rings!! Designing is definitely a good route to go if you have a jeweller that goes with that. Your set looks gorgeous!

 

I love your engagement pics. Puppy is adorable!! And the fact she got her own photo session, lol good for her! She deserved her pics too! lol And I have to get in on the skirt too. Love it!!


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@Wafflesmom maybe this is a stupid question, but how do you plan on reusing the flowers from the gazebo for your sweetheart and cake table? I would love to do that too and plan on having 2 sets of flowers on each side of the gazebo (and they are super expensive) so I would love to re-use them, but I havent figured out how! Do you just lay them flat on the table? thank you!!!

@maria1488
I re-used mine. The small one on the signing table was for the head table. The two large ones from the gazebo where on the cake table. Yes they are large and have to lay flat. Will limit spots they'll fit. Just depends how much space you have on the tables you want them. If you wanna see pics let me know. Unsure if you'll get a good shot of them in my review below but have a peak.

@acw271011 thank you so much! I love our custom rings and am glad we went down that route.

Waffle loves attention so she loved her little photo shoot! And yes, you should get a tulle skirt! They're so fun to wear

@maria1488 not a stupid question at all. The flowers from the gazebo are actually arranged together and can be easily detached from the gazebo. Like @calgarybride2015 said, they just lay them flat on the table and can be used as a big centerpiece. No sense wasting good flowers ;)

@Wafflesmom@calgarybride2015  thank you!! this actually makes the decision on getting those flowers much easier for me! I also plan on getting 2 big centerpieces to put on tall white blocks infront of the ceremony set up, and then re-using those centerpieces for the escort table at the reception. So I am all for reusing flowers and decorations, they are so expensive and when you have a 15 minute ceremony its so sad to waste!

 

@Wafflesmom we also have a dog that is basically our child, and we are extremely sad we cant include her in the wedding. One cute idea that I had that may interest you too, was to have her as part of our cake topper like this: https://www.etsy.com...er-with-feather

 

love all of your ideas so far!

I had my stagette last Saturday and I must say, I have the best bridal entourage for organizing such a fun event. We decided to have my stagette 4 months earlier so we could take advantage of the nice weather. Plus, with all the upcoming holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day), it would have been really difficult to schedule since everyone gets really busy. There were 21 of us and all of them wore pink since it's my favourite colour. During the day, my sister/MOH took me to Blo to get my hair done. I chose to have my hair down since I'll have it up for the wedding. My sister bought me a tiara with a veil and a "bride 2 be" sash to complete my bridal look, it was really cute. We had a limo pick us up and we headed off to a new restaurant in downtown Vancouver called Glowbal. The restaurant just opened last month and I must say, it is beautiful. It's really upscale and kind of had a New York vibe. We started off at the lounge for drinks and appies and then headed off to our private dining room. My bridesmaids set up the room and had fun things like penis straws, and buttons that said "frisky, wild, etc." They also had a small canvas for "Kiss the Miss Goodbye" where everyone applied lipstick, kissed the canvas and signed it. I love that idea and will be a great memorabilia from the night. We also took "Before" and "After" photos. They also had me play "How well do you know your future husband" game. With this game, my bridal entourage thought it would be fun to have me drink each time I had the wrong answer. BUT to make the game more fun, my drink would come out of a penis gun. Yup, my girls got me a giant penis that I had to squirt LOL It was hilarious! I'm proud to say, I only had three questions (out of 10) incorrect. My sweet brother also surprised us by sending a bottle of Patron to the room. I was touched by his generous gift and when I called to thank him he said "I only get married once". The night was really fun and let's just say that it's Monday and I'm still recovering. Plus, I think I'm now getting sick but that party was worth getting sick!!!
