September 2013 Brides

Hi Ladies, 

I know there is a post for September Brides in the main feed but I though I would get one starting in the Canada feed.

It would be great to get to know some of the other ladies getting married in our Month!

I'll start.

    YAY! Welcome!!!

    I agree we are looking at DB as well and their purple selection sucks!

    Three of my girls are going to be in Mercury with my MOH in Purple. Not only have I found it difficult to find a dress in both those colours, I have found the Purples suck. Lapis is likely the colour we're going for but I found it like a bluey purple. Plum would be my next choice but their plum is almost too burgandy.

  • THANKS!!!

    The issue we've had is finding anything that matches the lapis from DB. I even brought my sash with me to Michael's for ribbon matching and paper with NO dice. It's been very frustrating. We've decided to just have a mix of purple since nothing perfectly matches the DB lapis.

  • I actually just made an appointment to visit a different bridal shop for my BM's. I'm not sold on the Lapis, and well i stil have time so I'm not ready to settle!

  • Oh Montreal will look beautiful Sept 28. 
    My FI's BFF was married Sept 29 and even though it was dark and rainy out the pictures are still so nice with the colour changing leaves.

    Lizeepea, my first wedding had only 50 guests, and it was amazing! So tight knit and also a great way to save money for a modest budget. You won't regret it!

  • We're September 21st as well in Belleville for the ceremoney and Brighton for the reception.  How on earth are you ladies doing a wedding for under $30,000.  I'm making all decor myself, not having a cake, and my dress was 1,300 with taxes and i'm still at $35000.  Any tips would be helpful.
  • Hey Deirdre.

    We managed to find a venue that charged a reasonable amount per plate.  Hotels here are a minimum of $40 a plate so those were out right away to stick to our budget.  We're ordering cut flowers from Costco and what we can't get there we're ordering from a florist and the day before the wedding all of us women are getting together to make the bouquets, boutonieres, corsages, and centerpieces.  As well, we're using a lot of big blooms like hydrangeas and garden roses so we don't need nearly as many - going save a LOT of coin doing this.  Also, our ceremony site is free, it's happening in a park.  And I made our invitations instead of ordering them.  This has all really helped stay within the $20,000.  How some of the ladies above are doing there's for under $10,000 is amazing!!!

    Color: It's actually a print/theme - but the colors would be shades of blueish green and ivory.  I'm going to do the flowers in lime greens, purples, blues and more vibrant than the clothing for a brighter pop of color. 
    Budget: 25,000
