  • I bought a kit from Michael's and in the end they looked great, but the amount of time, energy and stress trying to get them to print properly (i had to try 3 different printers) honestly wasn't worth the money saved. My advice to other brides is -…

  • Woohoo - getting really excited! To dos: Assemble my Day-of kit - anyone else doing this? if so what did you put in? Pay Venue and Cake Vendors Decorate Card Box - suggestions welcome Make a list of family photos we want Script for the MC Meet with…
  • Thank you all so much for your help! This has been great! I have sent out a number of emails to get info about availablilty and pricing. If you hear/see any others please let me know! Thanks again!
  • Thank you for posting this question. We are experiencing the same issue. My cousin recently informed me that she's having trouble finding a babysitter so she might have to bring her 1 y/o. I was firm and restated our wishes, but I feel the need to…
  • La Vie En Rose has really nice good quality baithing suits! Highly reccommend these - I have bought a few and they aren't too expensive usually $60-75. They also have all the matching cover ups, cute skirts, etc.
  • Okay ladies, everyone take a deep breath. I know exactly how you all feel! You will get everything done in time. It will be magical and anything that you forget, you can do without. One day at a time, one task at a time. Make a list, check it off,…
  • I think this is everything... To dos: Assemble my Day-of kit - anyone else doing this? if so what did you put in? Pay Final Invoice at Venue Decorate Card Box - suggestions welcome Make a list of family photos we want Script for the MC Meet with t…
  • Wow, those are great prices. I have been looking for Martini Glass vases that are 24inches high and the best price I have found is $15.95/each. I have just sent them an email through their website. Fingers Crossed!
  • Us too...when I did the budget over a year and a half ago...I didn't take into account that the Venue would raise prices 5% (which they are allowed to in our contract). So that with the extra people that we ended up adding to the guest list amounted…
  • I totally feel your pain! The only person that has caused any stress throughout this proccess is my FMIL. Take a deep breath! PPs have give you two options of how to handle her. It will all work out.
  • Edible is the way to go! We are known in our circle of friends for our homemade turtles (chocolate, caramel, pecans). We usually make them around Christmas time and they always get requested when we go to parties/pot lucks. It's a lot of work makin…
  • Our venue supplied us with a layout that they would do with the number of tables we needed. It had numbers assigned so we just put the groups where we wanted them to sit. It was actually really easy, and this way the venue staff already know where t…
  • We decided to get a nice vase for each set of parents. The Vase is one that we registered for and already recieved as a gift - we thought it was a neat idea that we all have the same one in our seperate homes to represent our family love and bond. …
  • I have been refused service at Pacific Mall for not ...um...speaking the language. I'd never (try to) shop there again.
  • These suggestions are great, but what about people who are vegetarian? Is it not neccessary to find out how many have various dietary restrictions?

  • We also plan to give our parents albums after the wedding but wanted to have something extra for them to open. Both sides love fresh cut flowers, so we got each couple a nice ruffle vase that we also have the same one. So we can all use our vases a…
  • I think your photographer is trying to manage your expectations because it sounds like you are maybe micro-managing, a little?  We have given our photographer a list of the family portraits we'd like just so the parents get the photos they want...b…

  • After a meeting with the Pastor where we stood up and said part of our vows to eachother and neither of us could even speak we were so overcome with emotion, we decided to say our vows a few times before the wedding so that hopefully it won't be too…
  • Thanks Jewel - My wedding isn't until September, so I still have time. Thanks Blush - I will check them out - do they have a website? I have heard about some great wholesale places in Mississauga, but it's my understanding that you need a vendor …
  • I love the idea of a receiving line because so many Brides I have spoken to say they didn't get to eat dinner between kissing games, toasts, and having to visit each table.  Just sayin'
  • There is a woman in Durham Region named Tanis Emmett who did my veil and custom jewelry. She does great work and is very reasonable! She does have items on esty, but also does custom work if you phone her and make an appointment.  
  • Thank you all so much!
  • I had the same problem!! I tried them at home, then on my personal printer at work (where the black dots and smearing happenned - and this was a laser printer), then at the big industrial printer at work before I finally got them to print properly! …
  • I this debate has taken me by complete surprise! I have been to over 20 weddings and never seen the SOs of the WP sit at the head table....not once! In fact, I have never even heard of seating SOs at a head table, until today. We will be doing a …
  • Take a deep breath. Everything that needs to happen will come together. It's so easy to get wrapped up in all the details of planning a wedding, but in the end it doesn't really matter. It will be fine, and even if it's the worst wedding ever - …
