Parting is such sweet sorrow…

Parting is such sweet sorrow…

Wow, I really can’t believe that our six-month blogging journey has come to an end!  It has been so much fun sharing my wedding planning experience with all of you, and Karlo and I would like to say a huge

The Big Day

We finally did it! It took several years, two children, and another on the way, but I am happy to report that Bojan and I finally tied the knot! I had mentioned in a previous blog that we wanted to

Pulling off the Circus Theme at our Wedding

{Photography Kim Lovell.} It’s been great fun blogging and I really appreciate everyone who has taken the time to read the blogs, post a comment or vote for me. In this final blog, I want to share the details that

Final Details

Wow! The last post! I feel like I’ve barely shared all of my ideas with you and now I have but 500 very valuable words left to fill you in on the rest of the details. Here’s how we’ve put

Mabuhay!!*

*pronounced mah-BOO-hi and is an expression used to exclaim “long live”. It’s hard to believe that six months ago I introduced myself and Mark to the Weddingbells online community and now I’m saying my farewell. In that time, you’ve learned

Give me your Forever…

By far, writing our own vows was the most meaningful and touching part of the whole wedding process for Karlo and I. We had a religious ceremony, so we still did the standard vows that we all know by heart

(Somewhat) Final Thoughts on Wedding Planning and Marriage

As we get closer to our wedding, I find myself reflecting on the last few months of wedding planning. It has been a thoroughly enjoyable process and I wanted to pass on my words of wisdom to other brides-to-be. 1.

Pink Elephants, Oh My!

Many of the other bloggers have expressed the importance of finding a photographer that will not only fit your budget and style, but will also deliver stunning photographs that you can enjoy for many years to come.  Pink Elephant Photography

Something Cold, Something Blue

So far in our wedding plans, David and I haven’t really encountered too many challenges. Well, other than losing half the wedding party and my dress disappearing along with the retailer – but that’s all part of the fun, right?

So much to do! So little time!

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

OOTs, AHRs & RSVPs—oh my!

So unless you are also planning a destination wedding, you’re probably wondering what the heck an OOT or AHR is—I myself hadn’t heard of either until we started planning our wedding last year. OOT is the abbreviation for basically the

Gift for the Groom

Only a few more weeks to go until the big day!  I feel like we’ve accomplished a lot over the last few weeks but one major thing still left to think about—the groom’s gift! Because Bojan and I have been

My Top 10 Reflections

The wedding was fabulous and I loved every moment of it.  Here is my advice to you. 1. Don’t plan on leaving any tasks for the day before or the day of the wedding. New last minute things that you

Photos By Wei Will Brighten Your Day

Finding our photographer was probably the easiest part of the wedding planning process.  I already had a fairly clear idea of how I wanted our pictures to turn out, so when I came across the Photobolic website, I knew right

Tiers of Joy

{Some of Charlie’s beautiful creations.} It’s not a secret that one of my biggest passions in life is art in every form. So when it came to our wedding cake, it was only natural for me to want to design

Let’s Face the Music…and (TRY to) Dance

So far in my blogging journey, I’d like to think you’ve been able to get to know me pretty well. In that I’m terrified of the cold (yet having a wedding in the dead of winter), I’m a DIY enthusiast,

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

Getting That “Bridal Glow”

I’ve always had problem skin.  As long as I can remember, I’ve been plagued with every skin problem imaginable—acne, extreme dry skin and eczema have been my biggest problems. It got to the point when I had to quit past

Expecting the Unexpected

On top of the many obstacles that come up when planning a wedding, Bojan and I just discovered we are expecting another baby! It is such an exciting yet overwhelming time in our lives so I am glad we planned

The Search for the Dress!

I’m writing this blog two days before my wedding and by the time you are reading it, I will be married! So exciting! Anyways, now I can finally tell you about my dress. I thought I knew exactly what I

Postcard Invitations

As part of our plan to reduce our impact on the environment, we had to think hard about out wedding invites. Sure, the most environmentally friendly way to do it is to send out evites, but I’ve always loved receiving

Through the Eyes of a Child

{The centre of my Universe.} I can say with complete certainty what my greatest achievement in life would be my daughter. I once read the following phrase and have since lived my life by it, “God gives not what you

The Recessionista Bride’s DIY Guide

It’s a pretty safe bet to say that we’re far from having the biggest wedding budget in the world. So when times are tight, what better way to save money (and have far too much fun!) than to attempt many

If The Shoe Fits…

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

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet…

…unless it’s a fake rose, that is! For the most part, I am avoiding fake things on my wedding day—no fake nails or fake hair or anything like that. I am, however, going to be “faking it” with the flowers—all
