@perianjay Thank you!  I know it's really simple but I like simple, and I think it really compliments my dress.  I want a gigantic bun!  I showed my hairdresser girlfriend and she loves it, she's going to give me a bit of volume at the top too so it won't be super sleek... basically exactly like Hilary Duff's lol

I love your bridesmaids' dresses and like @perianjay, I wish I had seen them and considered full length dresses. Maybe I'll get one for myself to wear around the resort, maybe for our rehearsal dinner if we have one?

 

And those Michaels finds are great! I love the frames and will check them out too. I need silver frames and those are a great deal. And the roses are a great colour, they do look good all together. Like @perianjay, we are using greenery in our bouquets and they're similar to lamb's ear. They're called dustin miller and I chose them to add a touch of "silver/grey" to the bouquet. They're fuzzy and I love how they look.

 

As for your hairstyle, I was considering that exact one! I saw a bride on Say Yes to the Dress request the same Hillary Duff hairstyle. It looked so pretty on her. It will look great on you with your veil and your dress.

@Wafflesmom Thanks!  I always pictured long flowy dresses for my bridesmaids!  It would definitely be a great dress to wear in the evening. @acw271011 bought it in Navy.

 

Thanks for the greenery idea for my bouquet - I'm going to start looking for some to add in.  And some more small roses :)  I'd love to add a small rose to the lily boutonniere if I can find the right flowers.

 

I love the hairstyle too!!!  It puts my mind at ease and I bought one of those Hot Buns for it, not the donut shaped one, but the long one that snaps once all your hair is rolled in it.

@perianjay I just purchased a $5 Groupon Floral Arrangement Course - so hopefully will get some good insight - one of the categories is specifically for weddings!

@Wafflesmom YES!! That's the name hahaha..DUSTY MILLER! Those are the ones I bought too. I keep calling it lambs ear, but it's not the exact same - similar though. I bought three bunches of Dusty Miller from Michaels and it looks really real. Going to add it to my bouquets and centre pieces

@perianjay we have a neighbour with a garden full of dusty miller. They're quite gorgeous! I didn't even know about them until Claudia from LatinAsia suggested them. And now I see them on so many bridal bouquets!

P.S. 4 months from today!!!

@calgarybride2015 I heard back from the Wedding Planner at GBP and she confirmed that the Tulum beach location hasn't been painted, it's the same dark brown as in the picture.  It was the Akumal beach location that has been painted.

@deecol The BM dress is really pretty and love the bun!  :D You are making great progress and now I'm wondering what I should be doing next as I'm a few weeks before you!

@vancouverpetunia Thanks!!! I'm wondering if I'm at a decent pace with everything so you made me feel better  :)

 

My best friend is getting married the same month as me so I'm in the mentality where I want to get as much out of the way as possible before the extreme chaos begins in Jan/Feb.  Still soooo much to do but if I can tick anything off my list I'm happy.

We downloaded the Wedding DJ App this weekend.  I'm so glad we did because it took me a couple hours of playing around with it to understand how it works, and I'm still not 100% clear... maybe it's just me.  Either way, I'm glad I started early!

 

I need opinions:

KC & Jojo - All My Life

 

I absolutely love this song, and need to find somewhere for it, which category do you suggest we put it in?

 

a) Pre-Ceremony - right now this list includes songs like "Red Red Wine" and "One Love" for a chilled out vibe while the guests are being seated

 

B) Dinner

 

c) Reception/Party - Use as one of the slow songs to break up the dance music

 

I would personally add to each category because I love this song so much but that can't happen... would love to hear your thoughts!
