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.

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
