Canada

Where are the Canadian girls at??

The post the other post about being sad that we don't chat anymore made me think... why don't we have a specific night and time we can all be here to chat?? The July 2011 board has them once in a while called VKN... Virtual Knottie Night.

What do ya think ladies?

    Maybe we Canadian ladies should have VKNs, I'm getting married in Sept.2011, but I have to say this - The Knot does NOT really realize that Canada has far more than Toronto to its credit....We're getting married in PEI - where are you getting married?

    I like this idea, we Canadian gals should be talking a lot more!  I'm getting married in June 2011 in New Brunswick :)

    Wow, so glad to find a bunch of Canadian brides that aren't from TO! So what do you ladies have done so far as far as planning goes? We've got a bunch of stuff done, but I know I'll still be squirming til it's all done....We've finished booking the ceremony location, reception location, ceremony officiant, catering, cake, dress, veil, jewellery....We're working on hair, make-up, invites, special occasion liquor permit, spa day type activities for the ladies, suit for the groom, deciding where to get ready, under the dress essentials, flowers (oh my but are the flowers giving me a headache!!).....So much to do, so little time to do it in.....

    shpoop - In Fredericton (well, New Maryland actually). We're having both the ceremony and reception at the Oakland Farm & Lodge.  And you?

    Miracle Cat - You've got quite a bit done.  Here's what I've got:
    Done: Ceremony/Reception location, Officiant, All our attire, toasting flutes, cake serving set....It's kinda hard to remember what I have done since we're always concentrating on what we still have to do, LOL!

    To Do: working on decorations (some decided, some narrowed down...it's hard with such a rustic location, I think the typical frilly stuff just won't look good, and we have to do it the morning of, so we'll have to keep it pretty easy so that we have time), Cake (I had decided to do it myself since I'm having cupcakes but I've since changed my mind), Rings (gotta get him sized then order them),  Honeymoon (we have it narrowed down, we're just waiting for pricing)

    Sounds like fun.  I haven't been on this board before, I am still figuring out which boards are good to post on.  I'm from the western GTA, getting married in the same area, Hamilton-Ancaster region, August 20 2010.

    So far I've booked the reception venue, church/officiant, and photographer.  Going dress shopping tomorrow!

    Does Toronto count as Eastern Canada?  I thought we were the centre of the country.  No, scratch that -- centre of the planet.  :)

    Yay more Canadian girls. I'm an NB girl. Sept 2011


  • edited December 2011
    Gosh, it's good to see all the Canadian ladies.....As much as I feel like I have gotten all of the big stuff done I still have all the nit picky detail oriented stuff to do and that's the stuff that stresses me out in a big way. We finally ordered our wedding invites and other stationary on Sunday. I can hardly wait to see the invites in my hand - I'll be sure to take pics and post. For now have a good one and hope everyone's planning is going well!

    I'd love to see this board become more active.  I like the international boards, but a lot of the specific suggestions aren't really applicable!

    I hang out on the Toronto board too even though I'm not from Toronto.  I'm living in Windsor right now and planning my wedding in York Region.  Long distance planning is funnnnn.

    Seeing other brides' checks freaks me out because I feel like I'm so behind in my planning.
