Tying up the Loose Ends so We can Tie the Knot!


The bow on the front of our menu booklets

I guess when you’re just a little over two months away from your wedding, that’s when everything really starts coming together. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve had more appointments than I can count.

To give an update on my hair, I went for another trial and it was much better than the first. Completely different style and this hairdresser really knew how to handle my thick hair. It didn’t budge at all. I made sure to jump up and down to be sure! I’m really excited that that aspect was taken care of.

My room has now turned into a printing press! I’m printing maps, menus and ceremony programs, and the piles of paper are starting to overtake me. I keep saying I’m glad the guest list is on the smaller side, because it would have multiplied the cost and the amount of work. For our menus I decided to tie Tiffany-style bows around every single one. I’m glad to say I completed the task much faster than I thought, and it really cut down on what it would have cost if I hired someone to make them.

I was hoping I would have a photo of our centrepiece by now, but the stock has not arrived as of yet. We decided on renting centrepieces using silk flowers rather than real ones from a florist. This especially kept some costs lower, considering florists don’t offer rentals! Not that I know of anyway. If everything goes as planned it will be a very tall trumpet style vase, with a large pomander or roses and Gerber daisies. Read the rest of this entry »

So much to do! So little time!


Card Box design (mine will be in Tiffany blue and ivory with pink flowers)

As the weekends are slowly crossing themselves off my calendar I’ve set my mind to trying my best to get everything done by the beginning of July (my aunt says I’m kidding myself) and I probably won’t be even close to finished, but I’d like to have less rather than more on my plate.

The past couple of weekends have been wedding-filled. I stumbled on a great special on the exact paper we had been planning on getting for our ceremony programs and our menu cards—75% off! I was ecstatic! Construction on our house was completed. I found a beautiful card box and matching guestbook (from, that will be arriving in June. I finalized the linen rentals for the guest tables, I’ve started to look at everyone’s schedules for a good night for the rehearsal dinner and I had a trial for my hair.

By the time the weekend is over I don’t want to think about weddings anymore! I’ve been surprised with my productivity and my luck at finding and getting things done the past few weeks. Unfortunately there’s always some bad to go along with the good. Read the rest of this entry »

Something New and Something Blue…


I have two great things to blog about today! And who knew one could be so excited about two little things!

I really wanted a unique garter to wear for the wedding. The traditional white lace with blue trim was just not going to cut it for me. I checked in some stores in town but they all looked the same. So I turned to the world wide web for help. It didn’t take long! turned out to be the perfect match for what I was looking for. She has an endless supply of sports themed garters, paired with a great variety of “classic” styles and other designs as well. I was able to find a garter that matched my wedding and it will really stand out with the flash of colour. Read the rest of this entry »

If The Shoe Fits…


I found them!! Hoorah!

I love shoes. I have at least 50 pairs of them, boots, stilettos, flip flops, flats, sandals, sneakers, you name it I probably have it. And I knew what I wanted for my wedding. Being 5’10” with a fiancé who is exactly the same height, I decided to stay completely away from heels. This was a tough decision for someone who wears them almost every day. However, I really do not want to be taller than Joseph, and even though he said I could wear them if I want, I’m sure deep down he doesn’t want me towering over him either.

So what I’m searching for are flats. Not just any flats—flats that look just as beautiful as a great pair of heels. At first I didn’t think it would be so hard. Boy, was I so very wrong. Read the rest of this entry »
