Everything looks fantastic. You you very talented.

 

Love the flowers... do you plan to use your BM's bouquets as your centre pieces or did you just decided to use what you said above? Either way, sounds fantastic and I really can't wait to see pictures :)

 

I will try to pop on once in awhile to keep up to speed :)


PS - with respect to baggage... remember you can use a small suitcase for each of you as a carry on... push that carry on weight to the max!!!!  Also, if your friends/family don't need a large carry on (or two can share between them) use them for another carry on!  (or even checked bag if they are sharing)

So one more thing checked off of my to do list!

Thanks to Pinterest I came up with the idea of not only buying frames from Ikea but to incorporate all the beautiful engagement pictures that were just siting on my hard drive.

My FI spray painted the frames silver and the prints cost $0 because I had some free prints at Costco!

Here's the final product

So I accomplished yet another task but funny enough this one wasn't on my list.

First let me praise the person who is @@calgarybride2015. She is the most helpful person on not only this site but on the FB group for my hotel. I could never thank her enough for all the advice and help she has contributed to my wedding.

She gave me the idea of sending a pre-travel brochure to my guests to answer any questions or offer tips to them. She sent me a copy of her brochure and while I did copy lots of it (she had an amazing brochure) I also added some of my own touches.

I ordered these thru Vistaprint and took advantage of their Black Friday deals and I can't wait to get them in the mail!

The countdown is officially on! 1 month until I marry my best friend!

So last night my MOH came over and we made some really good progress!

First we washed and labelled all 55 tumblers.

Then she finished assembling all the escort cards that I pre-cut on my mom's silhouette cameo (I love this machine!)

Then we assembled all the hangover kits which contained mini tictacs, bandaids, Advil, Emergen-C, and hand sanitizer.

I have also started the canvases that will line the aisle but it's definitely very time consuming. I've finished 2 out of 8 so far.

I also got the gift for our ring bearer in the mail today. I ended up getting him a personalized baseball and mini bat.

I still have to find a gift for our flower girl but I think we are set giftwise.

So I officially leave in 10 days and get married in 2 weeks!

It's been a rough week as I found out that Passport Canada lost my pictures. So this 5 year passport is now going to cost me near $300 and it will be ready on Friday (we fly out on Tuesday). I have also wasted an entire week in bed with bronchitis and a sinus infection so it's not my best week lol. Why do I share this? I share because every Bride has their crisis and it's ok. The wedding will still happen and I know it will be beautiful!

I've been picking up packages all week and it's so exciting!

Today I picked up a special cup and a princess superhero for my flower girl. I wanted to get her something original and i love it!

I also ordered these beautiful hankies for my parents

When my MOH helped me pack the decorations and welcome bag stuff we discovered that we were 1 tumbler short. After multiple trips to the dollar store with no luck I decided to order a special tumbler for myself lol.

Our Ring Bearer is only 1 1/2 years old so we do t really trust him with the rings so I made him a sign to carry.

I don't have any pictures of the flower girl basket or crown as my mom is still making them.

My biggest concern now is luggage space as we were original told we were allowed 2 bags each at 23kg but that's under the new rules and because we booked last year we are only allowed 30kg ea which kinda sucks but I'll make it work. On the way back it won't be an issue as we will be rid of all the welcome bag stuff.

I still want to do a table mock up for the hotel before we leave and I have one more printable to print and cut and I'm pretty much ready to go.

Today we went and picked up our marriage license as we are legally getting married here the Sunday before we leave.

Tonight is my bachelorette party and we are going swimsuit shopping! Wish me luck!

So sorry to hear about the passport! But I'm glad it will be set before you leave. I love the tumblers and the cape for your flower girl! Have fun at your bachelorette party!

You should ask them, for that price, to make it a 10 year passport!  Sucks you have to change it just before leaving, to come back and need a name change too!

 

Feel better, I know it's going around. I have been sick going on a 4 weeks but nothing like bronchitis.

 

Tuesday will be here before you know it. I can't wait to see all the pictures. Good luck and remember to slow down and take it all in! Goes super fast.

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
